Profile

Domino (aka Neena Thurman) is a highly trained assassin whose primary weapon is lady luck herself. She can manipulate the probability of odds in her favor simply by being aware and being an active participant in the physical world around her. While to others her uncanny ability to always come out on top seems impossible, for her it is a normal way of life. She expects things to go her way, whether that be in combat, money, love, or leadership. Expect to see her wearing guns and blades.

Timeline

Timeline:
1992: Neena was born to a top secret government breeding program, intended to create a super mutant weapon. She was one of the surivors of the unstable genetic program and she was branded with a tattoo to mark her as a mutant, but her powers were not what was expected, so she was deemed a failure. Fearing what the project might do as a result, Neena's mother escaped the program and left her at a mysterious Church in Chicago where she was raised.
2015: Neena left Chicago and operated as a mercenary. She bounced around between many different groups and jobs. She was eventually recruited by the NSA and assigned as bodyguard for the super genius, Dr. Milo Thurman, who nicknamed her "Domino". She hated his guts at first, then married the poor SOB. AIM ambushed Domino while she was traveling with Milo and the two were separated, both believing the other died in the chaotic fray.
2019: Domino began working with several known mutants and successfully made contacts, friends and relationships. She later learned the Project that led to her birth was operating in Florida and found her mother when she infiltrated the project complex. Her mother let Neena in on some of her background and confessed her motives to kill her other child, the dangerous mutant child Lazarus, who had been kept in cold storage until recently. Unfortunately, Neena had to shoot her own mother to escape with Lazarus. She left him with The Church in Chicago and disappeared.

2020: Neena reappeared in New York.

Personality

Click to expand.

Callous:
Your bad luck is her good luck and she's okay with that. If she needs some money and she sees you buy a lottery scratching ticket, there's two ways this could go. The turning of the ticket wheel is going to just miss you but hit her with the win, or perhaps the wind is going to make you lose that ticket just so she can find it. Either way, it's a bad day for you and another wonderful day for her.

Leader:
That luck field is person, but person can also mean a team. She has started to learn that she likes being in charge, having people listen to her - because her plans work. You can't argue with a track record.

Overconfident:
When lady luck is always smiling on you, it's hard not to feel supremely confident in any situation. She's never met a gun that didn't miss, jam, or outright explode when she was paying attention.

Playful:
The world is a playground. It is constantly surprising her with new and creative forms of destruction or folly. The stronger her luck field is the more convoluted the outcome tends to be (in her favor of course). This gives her a light hearted approach to combat. Why not enjoy the chaos and mayhem.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

Probability Manipulation:
Domino emits waves of telekinetic power from her body at all times, which alters and changes the probability of events she's involved in. This means that events in her line of sight or impacting her present state can change in her favor thanks to this telekinetic field. This power appears like pure "luck" but can only trigger when she makes an action or is involved in some action, and ramp up to peak efficiency when she's stressed or excited, causing events to go well for her, and probably not so well for her opponents. Often this creates a Rube Goldberg effect, creating unusual circumstances to save her.

Superhuman Agility:
As a product of her probability manipulation Domino also has the ability to dodge objects coming at her under stressful situations.

Synapses from seeing the incident, work down her spine to control her movements that make it possible for her to even dodge bullets as long as she is aware.

Skills

Click to expand.

Acrobat:
Neena uses her enhanced agility to perform acrobatic feats often, as she has a flair for style and drama.

Markswoman:
Some people put effort in to learning to be a great marksman, but Neena just uses her luck. She can hit targets at impossible ranges, in the windiest conditions, through crowds of people, even around corners, if she can get the target in mind.

Martial Artist:
As part of her training she was taught numerous martial arts skills, mostly in the variety of MMA styles. She excelled at it when she abused her penchant for luck.

Resources

Weapons:
Neena keeps an arsenal of weaponry. She is often carrying pistols, knives, grappling hook, and a staff. The more she can hide, the more options she has, the better odds she has of coming out on top.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Action Probability:
In order for most of her powers to trigger into action, Domino has to be aware of the situation at hand. If she is not watching or at least aware of what is happening, her powers will not be very helpful. She may be able to jump to last second action but that does not mean she will be completely saved from harm.

Alektorophobia:
Domino is afraid of chickens to the near point of paralysis.

Easily Id'd:
Domino has very distinct attributes that, more often then not make her easy to pinpoint. The abnormally pale skin and the tattoo around her left eye from the government facility are the main ones that are near impossible to hide.

Personality Flaws:
Domino has a conscience, which often leads her into other situations in the line of work as a mercenary, making her make decisions that may not benefit the job at all and end her up in further trouble. Domino has been a mercenary for a good length of time and she's sometimes abrasive and to-the-point to get the job done. She also doesn't have a lot of patience for many things, including large amounts of BS, which would probably make her a horrible diplomat.
