Ororo Munroe is the living incarnation of the Rain Goddesses of Babolodu. She is a mutant of formidable power and a close ally of the Xavier Institute, as well as being a member of the X-men. The combination of her mutant environmental manipulation and her mystical potential make her one of their strongest allies.
1993, Sep 3: Ororo Born in Kenya to N'dare, Princess of the Great Rift Tribes, and David Munroe of America.

2020: Ororo joins the rest of the world looking on in horror as Genosha is devastated. Along with the other X-men, she lends her aid to disaster relief efforts whenever possible.
Ororo is very much an example of a mentor and mothering mentality. Among students and friends, she is warmly maternal and affectionate. Her demeanour is one of calm sensibility and genuine affection. Ororo values life highly, something reflected in her love of growing things. Deep-rooted connections to Gaia herself leave Ororo very conscious of the larger world around her. Her way is to talk things out and de-escalate with a good measure of empathy and simple common sense.
That is not to say her wrath, though rare, is not terrifying. Maternal instincts turn to fierce protectiveness of her wards, and of children in general. Rooms that significantly limit her movement can cause uncontrollable panic attacks. Ororo prefers to be in nature no matter the weather, where she can sink her feet into the soil and feel living things around her.
Ororo's eyesight exists at an intersection of magic and science. She doesn't just percieve light or heat, she sees energy in all forms, both mundane and mystical. Lurking currents of magma underground, cosmic rays from above, the pulsing of heartbeats and the racing of neurons through a body. It's an extra-sensory perception that defies any understanding of physics and speaks directly to her consciousness.
Ororo descends from the Rain Goddesses of Babolodu, who are of the supremely ancient lineage of Atlantean stock. The women in her bloodline all have her signature blue eyes and white hair and command an instinctive and tremendously powerful connection to the mystical energies of the world. Ororo's own magical talents are largely neglected but she retains all the power of that bloodline and the implicit potential it describes. She shares the Tarot of the High Priestess with two other women; each of them is a potential candidate for the title of Sorcerer Supreme, among other things.
Ororo can regulate her metabolism down to a near-cellular level. She has total control of her nervous and endocrine systems, her lymphatic organs, even metabolic processes. There is no temperature or environment on Earth she cannot survive in.
Ororo can fly with ease by lifting herself on gravitational currents. She can carry only as much as she is physically capable of gripping with her hands or supporting on her back, and is limited to subsonic speeds.
Great and Small:
Ororo also has a close affinity to the metaphysical concept called 'The Green'. Through this connection she has an empathic awareness for living things. The range and effect varies considerably with sometimes muddied mystical energy currents around her. It is sometimes quite specific, and sometimes very vague.
Ororo can manipulate metaphysical elements on a global scale. This is not a direct result of her X-gene, but rather the ability to commune and channel Gaia's energy itself. There is very little of the Earth's environment that Ororo cannot affect or replicate, from weather events of a cataclysmic scale down to finessing subtle changes in the air around her. All of this is linked to fundamental metaphysical elements: Earth, fire, air, and water, rather than being a direct manipulation of known physics. It is more mystical in nature than scientific and closely linked to both her focus and conceptual intent. She cannot summon flames, for instance, but can dimish a grasslands fire quite easily. All energy must go to and from somewhere, however. There is no cheating Newton. Ororo is the fulcrum, not the lever, for this power. Her focus and willpower are the limiting factor and a lack of control or attention can easily cause self-injury from the feedback.
Channeling the fundamental metaphysical nature of the universe takes extraordinary focus and mental discipline. Ororo knows herself and her soul and has ventured deep into the realms of her own mind to confront who and what she is. There is no question of her place in the universe, or her needs and wants. She is at peace with herself in every possible way. Combined with the biofeedback that comes from the immense energies at her command, the actual task of attempting to sabotage her awareness and instincts is a near-fruitless endeavour for even the mightiest of minds.
Ororo is a capable aviator and can pilot several small-framed aircraft as well as the X-men's Blackbird.
Ororo's humble 'garden' at Xavier's Instiute is a almost a botanical research center in its own right. She develops unique hybrids and plant grafts and competes quite often under pseudonym in local growing festivals. Despite her lack of formal education she has a knowledge base equivalent to a Master's degree in botany.
Though she disdains physical violence, Ororo is quite capable of defending herself in a fight. She has recieved extensive training in unarmed combat from some extremely proficient experts in that field.
Years of constant training with her allies has turned Ororo into a very effective field commander who can use the abilities of her allies to maximum effect.
Ororo is fluent in English, Bantu Swahili, French, Modern Arabic, and a smattering of Farsi and some other regional tongues from the north-eastern landmass.
Ororo survived the streets of Cairo with nothing but skill, speed, and wits. She can still lift a wallet, pick a lock with a paper clip, and move around quite sneakily.
Great Rift Valley:
Ororo is worshipped as a living goddess by the rural tribes who occupy the valley spanning the stretch between Tanzanika in the south, all the way through Kenya and Sudan, and into the Red Sea. Even many residents of metropolitan Nairobi know of her and regard her with respect, or concern.
Ororo is one of the original X-men recruited for the Xavier Institute's X-men. She is a teacher as well as an active member of that group, and can freely call upon her allies for aid if needed.
Balance In All:
There is no cheating Newton. Ororo cannot create water or fire, she cannot upthrust mountains without creating depressions. She is the fulcrum, not the lever, and there is very real feedback from attempting to upset the natural order of the world in careless ways. A planet in distress creates a pain that Ororo herself can feel.
Ororo has severe claustrophobia. She manages it very well and can be indoors without incident. Prolonged periods of confinement in a house give her something akin to 'cabin fever' and increase her anxiety levels. Being trapped in a small space like a cupboard or closet will cause major anxiety, and if she's bound or unable to move she will have a full-blown panic attack (with catastrophic results for her surroundings).
Flesh and Bone:
Channeling the will to rearrange the fundamental static of nature itself takes tremendous effort. It is enormously taxing and the strain such energies put on her body create a finite limit to her abilities. To start a hurricane from nothing, or to stall one in motion, can exhaust her spirit to the point of her life force flickering out.
The bloodline of Atlantis flows through Ororo, via her distant grandmother Ayesha, Rain Queen of Balobedu. This is a source of immense mystical potential and certain entities would eagerly like to get their hands on it.
Storm At Heart:
The world responds to Ororo's emotions. When she is happy, it flourishs with energy. When sad or hurt, it grows dark and cold. Ororo's anger is something to truly fear because the very earth around her shakes with the fury of her ire.
