Born and raised in a bunker miles beneath Olympus Mons, M'gann M'orzz is the sole output so far of an attempt to save the Martian species thousands of years after a plague scoured the planet. Inexperienced but determined, She's on her way to earth to meet the Martian Manhunter, and find someone who can help repair the Ark and save her people from extinction.

With the start of the Burning Plague, a group of Martians had elected to establish a failsafe in case the worst happened. Miles beneath Olympus Mons, they built an ark for the Martian species: A bunker that would last milennia, banks of cryo-frozen embryoes, and a central computer capable of holding the psychic imprint of a living Martian to serve as a caretaker. Equipped with state of the art psionic shielding, the ark would seal itself off from the planet until the all clear was sent, or the plague burned itself out...
Millennia later, the Caretaker awoke to find that she had slumbered far longer than planned. Even the state of the art had aged, and the power systems of the bunker were running low. The cryo systems were self sustaining if undisturbed, and there was currently only enough energy to thaw and grow one embryo. Needing someone able to venture outside, the Caretaker initiated the growth cycle, choosing an embryo named M'gann M'orzz...
According to the transmissions picked up from Earth, M'gann M'orzz' birthday was December 11th, 1971. Her early childhood was fairly carefree, Caretaker wishing to wait until she was older before teaching her the tragic history of Mars. When the day came, a horrified M'gann decided that she didn't want to be a white martian, and settled on a new default green form.
To help fill the time and feel less isolated, M'gann also immersed herself in Earth culture, mainly what she could see on TV and hear on the radio in between lessons about Martian culture, and how to use her abilities. It's from here that she learned about the Martian Manhunter, and came up with her plan to visit Earth, and ask him and some of the Human scientists for help. Her human identity was also based on the main character from 'Hello Megan', Both due to the similarity in names (Megan Morse), and the martian girl's wish that her own problems could be solved in 22 minutes.
Eventually, M'gann's training was as good as the Caretaker thought they could teach, and the bunker's spare biomass had been used to grow a bioship to convey the young martian to Earth. And so she set off on the journey of her lifetime, to meet her heroes and maybe become one.

* ~5000BCE: A group of Martians establishes a failsafe bunker to preserve the Martian species. Miles beneath Olympus Mons, the ark was equipped with psionic shielding, banks of cryofrozen embryoes, and a cartaker AI based on the psychic imprint of a living Martian.
* 1971 CE: The Caretaker awakens, and discovers that the ark's power systems are gradually failing.
* 2001: M'gann is taught about Martian history, leading to her decision to hide her white martian heritage, and the creation of her green Martian form.
* 2005: M'gann convinces the Caretaker that their best hope to repair the aging ark is to visit Earth and enlist aid from the Martian Manhunter and human scientists. She creates a human identity, and spends extra time studying human culture.
*2020: Her training complete to the best of the Caretaker's ability, M'gann sets off for earth aboard a freshly grown juvenile bioship.

Still getting used to interacting with people other than the Caretaker AI who raised her, most of M'gann's concept of social dynamics came from television and radio shows, especially sitcoms. Needless to say, she's very socially awkward and gets nervous under pressure in social situations.

M'gann's default attitude is undeniably upbeat. She's happy, and wants to share it with everyone.

Partially due to her empathic abilities, M'gann's senses of sympathy and empathy are off the charts. If someone is feeling upset or down, she'll do her best to comfort them.

Despite her people's tragic past, M'gann retains an inexhaustible hope for the future. Things /will/ go well, and she won't let her species die.

Character Sheet

M'gann is capable of shifting the molecules of her skin and bio-clothes to bend light around her. This renders her nearly invisible when stationary, and visible only as a faint ripple in the air when in motion.

Density Shifting:
Density shifting enables Martians to grow less dense and phase through solid objects, or increase their density to increase durability. An advanced technique, M'gann is still working to master it.

Enhanced Durability:
A combination of native Martian biology and tactile telekinesis grants M'gann enhanced durability, with shapeshifting also boosting the rate her body heals.

Enhanced Strength:
A combination of native Martian biology and focusing her telekinesis on her body grants M'gann enhanced strength.

Another application of tactile telekinesis, M'gann can fly by lifting herself, which requires some element of concentration.

Martian Biology:
M'gann's martian biology allows her to survive in extremes of pressure and temperature, go extended periods without food, water, or oxygen, and her eyes are capable of seeing an expanded range from IR to UV.

M'gann's shapeshifting occurs on a cellular level, letting her imitate members of nearly any species, even non-sapient ones. Not restricted to humanoid forms, she can modify existing ones to add different limbs, and is only really limited by what she can think up.

M'gann can manipulate and move objects with her mind, with more simultaneous actions requiring correspondingly greater concentration. She can also generate telekinetic shields and shockwaves.

Martians are a naturally telepathic species. M'gann is capable of both telepathic and empathic communication, capable of forming networks of even large groups of people. In addition she can project mental 'blasts' useful for stunning targets or engaging in psychic combat, project illusions into people's minds, Control the thoughts and actions of others, and bypass language barriers for herself and those in her networks. Finally, she can extend her own trained 'psychic shields' to others in her network.

To help pass the time when she wasn't training on Mars, M'gann taught herself to make a variety of human dishes and foods.

The standard on Mars, these clothes are controllable with a Martian's shapeshifting ability.

A miracle of Martian biotechnology, Bioships are living starships sharing many Martian abilities, including camouflage, shapeshifting, and telepathic contact with their bonded partner. Fed sufficient biomass, they grow and expand over time and can manifest more complicated subsystems. M'gann's is a juvenile, resembling an egg the size of a washing machine when idle and an aerodynamic craft roughly as large as a sedan when active. Given sufficient time can assimilate alien tech and enhance itself. It is not currently capable of interstellar travel.

A psychosomatic weakness programmed into the Martian race at the time of their split, being too close to fire causes M'gann to weaken and potentially lose consciousness.

I Can't Hold These Feels:
Being an empath in a society without well developed psychic shields being common can be difficult at times. Especially when you didn't have a lot of chances to practice before. Sudden strong emotions around her, especially from those she shares a link with, can bleed over or distract M'gann.

Sheltered Upbringing:
Being raised by an AI with your only exposure to Earth being broadcast media leads to a somewhat... lacking understanding of how the world works.

White Martian:
Unfortunately for M'gann, the history of her half of the Martian species isn't the best. If she had been raised in normal Martian society, she likely would have been exiled, and treated as an underclass at best. Fearing rejection and wanting to distance herself from her past, the facts of her true species are her most closely guarded secret.
