Colette is a perfectly normal human, just like you! Honestly. She's not actually the product of the ancient magics of the Empire of Tears, reshaped by the stolen mind of a green Martian. No, she's a normal decent American and has the paperwork to prove it. True the paperwork includes the words 'adopted' and 'blood parents: unknown', but that's no proof.

* Long, Long ago: During the war against the Guardians of the universe, the Empire of Tears attempted to create a Golem of Darkness with blood magic. The vessel on which the work was being done was destroyed before the Golem was embodied, leaving its sorcerous 'soul', the Dark Heart, stranded in space.

* The intervening millennia: A consciousness without knowledge and driven only by the nature of its essence and an overwhelming desire to embody itself, the Dark Heart drifted through space, occasionally meeting and magically devouring the souls of those travelers it encountered in a vain attempt to somehow become one of these entities with physical bodies it jealously regarded.

* The not so distant past: Shortly before the massacre of the Green Martians, one of their number voyaging in space, Kal'at Varr, encountered the Dark Heart and was consumed. Unlike previous victims, her powerful psychic nature was not subsumed by the Dark Heart's own mind, but hybridized with it. This new two-in-one entity drifted onwards. The Dark Heart's intellect finally gained knowledge rather than being purely instinct. Kal'at's personality, the mind of a deeply moral warrior, rebelled against the Dark Heart's inherent nature. The gestalt drifted, its two natures in perpetual debate.

* 1999: Resolving to solve their dilemma by introducing a third element, the gestalt using the Dark Heart's magic and the Martian's knowledge forms itself a body. Rather than embodying itself as is, it creates this body as an infant on a passing world, to give itself the opportunity to develop anew in its combined form, to bring nurture in as a counterbalance to the two opposing natures. She embodies on the steps of a hospital and is believed to be an abandoned baby. She is adopted by a childless couple, Mary and Simon O'Connail, and is given the name Colette.

* 2000s: The child grows up normally; the memories and intellects of Kal'at and the Dark Heart have been suppressed, to allow her to develop without consideration of her two natures.

* 2011: Colette first starts to believe that the odd dreams she has been having as long as she remember are more than just dreams. The temporary suppression of her true nature is starting to fade, and she becomes increasingly withdrawn as a feeling of alienation increases. She begins to be aware of two separate 'voices' in her mind that seem both part of her and yet so different in character, and wonders if she's crazy.

* 2013: Trailing behind her parents on a hiking trip, Colette stumbles across a rattlesnake. Momentarily blinded with fear, the Dark Heart's instincts lash out and she stuns the snake. The most shocking thing to her is how natural it feels. She no longer doubts what she is, and memories start to return.

* 2015: There are ancient blood magics and wise old Martians, and then there are teenage hormones. Colette gets tired of being withdrawn and antisocial, and reinvents herself. She decides that being part alien and part construct of dark magic is no reason not to be human and have fun. This comes as something of a shock to both those older sides of her.

* 2018: Colette graduates high school with good but unspectacular grades. She starts studying English Literature at Metropolis University.

* 2019: Close to the end of the year, Colette witnesses a mugging and intervenes without thinking about the consequences. When the mugger doesn't just run away, she unleashes her power. The Dark Heart is still far from fully reformed in her and she can channel only a fraction of its power, but it's enough to make it easy. For the first time it really occurs to her that what she has is a /power/, like those superhero guys have...

Colette knows what she is. She isn't human. She is a self-created creature, mimicking human form so accurately that her doctors never suspected a thing. She is made of dark magic and has greedily swallowed many a soul. Even only partly restored, she is powerful and dangerous. She is very, very, ancient.

Colette knows what she is. She is dead. She once was a Martian. She lived, she loved, she fought. Above all she fought for justice and happiness, the two things most worth fighting for. Even though she is dead, somehow her mind has lived on and can continue the fight.

Colette knows who she REALLY is. Yes, she's those two guys. But that's the past. People change. She's Colette. She's American. She loves partying, she's a bit of a Harry Potter geek and a film freak. She wouldn't be caught dead without her phone, and couldn't last a day without sharing some snippet of gossip with her friends. She can have bursts of vivacious activity, but generally she's content to be in the background. She can seem serious and intense at times, but punctuates it with moments of humor. Her friends would probably call her a decent person, but would be puzzled by the question. Her moral compass points both north and south at the same time, and she has up to now mostly coped with this by avoiding moral decisions.

Nature One:
The Dark Heart is a construct, darkness and blood magic formed into a being. Without memory or knowledge, it is a thing of instinct, formed of its nature. It revels in destruction, but its only true desire is the one imperative left over from its incomplete formation. It was going to be a Golem of Darkness; it's supposed to have a body. Being embodied in her is its driving desire so woe betide anyone who threatens that, but having to give up on the freedom to revel in destruction freely is a price worth paying for the Martian's cooperation in the embodying. Of course a true nature such as this can only be suppressed, not changed...

Nature Two:
The Bright Mind of Kal'at Varr, the Green Martian, stands in almost direct opposition. In her youth she had been a warrior fighting for justice. In her age, a deeply moral philosopher. She believed that 'Good' and 'Evil' were meaningful only in motivation, and that cruelty was the only true evil. Submerged into the Dark Heart, as she learned its nature she was forced to develop a new philosophy; that evil was not a purely abstract notion, but had some empirical existence. The Dark Heart, she concluded, was a product of Evil. But if that evil derives from something beyond individual motivation, could she teach it to have good motivations? In her undying death, this became her new battle to make the universe a better place.

With both two natures heavily suppressed, Colette grew on Earth in ways quite distinct from the two conflicting natures. She learned Terrestrial ideas and Terrestrial morals, and they were her formative experiences. As the gestalt entity's memories reasserted themselves, they did so in a framework that was steeped in American culture and shaped by a Christian moral. The 'new' knowledge and ideas changed her slowly, but they were reconstructed and inserted into that new framework that is Colette.

The Two Dualities:
Colette is defined by two fundamental dualities of nature.

=The first is the duality of Dark Heart and Light Mind - an intellectual desire to do good, and a nature that revels in destruction. She internalizes the debate by personifying the unified but contrasting parts of her psyche - the old archetype of an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other is something she finds irresistable. She tries to listen to both sides of her nature. If she sometimes thinks of them as separate voices whispering in her ears, she understands that they are simply aspects of the being that she has become, and struggles to find how she can be true to herself when what makes herself contains such opposites.

The second is the duality of human and inhuman. She knows she is not human, that this is just a temporary arrangement she came up with to discover herself. On the other hand, humanity is what she knows and what she feels comfortable with. She wants to fit in. She wants to be accepted, to be part of the human race. She fears rejection.

Ersatz Body:
Colette is not truly human. Her body is a constantly renewing magical construct that simulates humanity. She does not actually need to eat, or breath, or feel pain, for example. These she only does to fit in. Toxins, pathogens and physical damage impact the body as it is at the moment, but as long as she is still alive, such things fix themselves pretty rapidly. Even major physical trauma can be repaired given a bit of time. Broken bones can be reknitted in a few hours - if she thinks she can get away with nobody noticing, at least.

Colette is functionally immortal - she has already lived for countless years. However if she needs to fully recreate her body rather than simply patch it up, there is a price. Her body is a creation of dark magic, and while it is new, it is more strongly under the influence of the dark part of her nature.

Golem of Darkness:
Colette can to some extent reform her body into the form she was originally intended to be - the Golem of Darkness. However this is not under her conscious control, nor is it an exactly good thing. The more intensely she uses her power, the more she starts to resemble this form. The more she adopts this form, the closer to her current peak her powers reach. The closer to the true Golem of Darkness form she adopts, the more the Dark Heart dominates the Light Mind.

As the effect grows, she appears increasingly /not right/, swathed twisted flesh and darkness, and becoming slightly but not wholly intangible. At this point it is basically for effect, but the idea is that it would eventually become an extremely dangerous 'powered up' state that might well cause more problems than it solves.

Colette isn't a sorcerer. She has no knowledge of spells. However she IS raw magic. She is able to manifest this as a dark magical energy and manipulate it in a relatively crude fashion.

At this point in her (re)development, all Colette can really do with this is fire bolts of this dark energy at relatively short range and a maximum power roughly equal to of a hand grenade, or project short-lived shields a few feet wide capable of resisting a similar amount.

As she reintegrates her power, her manipulation of darkness will grow considerably stronger and more subtle, but that's for the future.

Martian Inside:
The mentality of the hybridized martian mind is locked inside her own mind, and its psychic powers cannot manifest externally. However they can act as a very strong barrier to anyone attempting to impinge on her own mind.

Night Vision:
Her human eyes see light; her magical nature sees darkness. A lack of light will stop her from reading words on a page or knowing what color someone's shoes are, but she can see shapes and motion perfectly clearly even in pitch blackness.

Shadow Walking:
Colette can walk into one shadow and out another, as all shadows are linked to darkness.

To perform this feat, she must be aware of both the shadow she enters and the shadow she exits. There are two ways she can be aware of shadows: either because they are in line of sight (which generally means as far as the horizon in open ground, or a block or three in city, but oddly does mean she can get to the moon), or because she is able to sense them through her supernatural link to shadow-stuff. At her current level of attunement to her true self, she is now able to sense shadows at short range with a few moments concentration -- she can feel out a shadow on the other side of a wall, for example. Practically the range is about 20 feet right now though it will grow in time.

She has now relearned enough of her ability to directly manipulate shadows to cause them to move short distances, and with some time and concentration can cause nearby shadows to pool around her to use for shadow walking. Mostly this just kind of looks spooky and cool, but it does mean she can shadow walk through shadows she couldn't otherwise reach, such as those on the ceiling.

Colette has the knowledge of two 'lives' beyond her own. The Dark Heart knows nothing but its own nature. This gives her some very abstract insight into the nature of darkness, a feeling for other dark magics, but no actual knowledge. The Martian part of her mind recalls (if a little patchily) a life as a warrior and philosopher of the Martian people, with the knowledge and skills that went with that. The martian was well traveled in the galaxy and has a good knowledge of galactic issues, though that knowledge is by now a good couple of centuries out of date.

Colette speaks English just great. She can manage basic conversational French and Spanish thanks to an expensive education, and a tiny smattering of Mandarin she made an effort to learn once in an attempt to reconnect to an assumed heritage she now knows is fake. She also speaks Martian and Interlac, which is generally pretty useless on Earth and she's kind of rusty from lack of practise. Her Martian side traveled widely through the galaxy, but telepaths don't have any great need to learn a wide range of languages. At this point she has no access to those telepathic abilities, and for now at least is stuck with the languages actually in her brain.

Social Media:
Colette does the social media thing. She writes pithy bits and pieces wherever seems trendy. She instagrams glamorous vacations with a moderate degree of success. She has a few followers in the way that people sometimes do for no particularly good reason. She's no social media star, but she knows how to play the game.

As far as she has any plans for her future, they involve writing. She's pretty good at it. She's a student of literature and harbors dreams of becoming an author one day.

Too Much Money:
Colette's adoptive father, Simon O'Connail, is the scion of O'Connail Construction, a Metropolis construction firm founded in the early 20th century which shucked off early criminal connections in the 30s and got fat off the post-war construction boom. While it's no global corporation, it's one of the larger regional players and daddy is wealthy. Colette doesn't have access to unlimited funds by any means, but for the normal day-to-day things like fancy cars and expensive vacations, she's pretty well set.

Dark Heart, Light Mind:
Colette is fundamentally torn between two opposing natures; if not quite good and evil, then darkness and light at least. While the light is her guiding principle, the darkness encourages a very fluid morality. She finds it hard to understand why foul deeds should not be done for fair purposes.

Due to the fine balance of these two aspects, Colette is susceptible to external influence, be it situation or persuasion. The environment she is in will tilt the balance one way or the other - with the right encouragement she can be a force for good, but if the encouragement is wrong, she could as easily embrace the darker aspect of her nature.

Empire of Tears:
Few have even heard of the Empire of Tears. Fewer still would ever be able to recognize its handiwork. If one of those few meet Colette, she's going to have some difficult questions to answer. She is, after all, the remains of a WMD created by an ancient empire of evil.

Light Magic:
As an entity constructed from dark magics, Colette is particularly susceptible to the effects of opposing forms of magic. In the presence of magic that is particularly beatific or life-based, her powers are weakened, even if the intent of that magic is not to harm her. Healing magic would actually hurt her.

Not Actually Human:
Colette is a magically self-created simulacrum of a human. The reproduction is convincing enough to pass a normal level of scrutiny, but anyone looking too closely will soon learn that she is not what she appears to be.

Colette has inherited some of the inherent martian pyrophobia implanted in the race by the Oans. As she's not actually a martian this is a purely psychological thing. It doesn't do anything to her powers, but can be mentally crippling.

Short Term Frailty:
While her body is a magical construct that self-renews (see +ski Colette/Ersatz Body), in the immediate term, it's a human body. She'll heal the damage quickly, but she can be stopped by a bullet for a while. She is only as strong, fast, resilient etc., as a normal human body would be.

Smells a Bit Evil:
While Colette would not register as demonic to those sensitive to such things, they would be aware that there is the metaphorical scent of brimstone about her. It might be suspected that she was the victim of some dark magic, or that she was under the influence of some dark force.

Wild Magic:
The Dark Heart is a creation of an era of wild magic, long since tamed. The Guardians of the Universe ended that era long ago, and she is one of the few survivors of that chaotic form of magic. Sorcerers in the current era mold and form magical energies through spell and ritual; she is unchained, primal magic given will and intellect. She knows nothing of those spells and rituals - everything she does, she does through instinct and the rules and rites of other magic users are entirely foreign to her.

As a source of this potent wild magic, she may be rather tempting target to sorcerers who understand how to manipulate such forces. To those who dare the dark taste of it and the risky rituals required to tame such a wild force, she would make a powerful source of energy indeed.

A cowboy, a bar fight, two pitchers of beer, twenty two asahi, and two bottles of sake.. two bowls of noodles, two plates of wangyu (that's the last time) and we still don't know who fell out first.
