Time traveling mutant from an alternate future where she hunted down and killed mutants due to brainwashing. She broke free of that and fought at the side of the Future X-Men. She is the daughter of Jean Grey and Scott Summers in that alternate future, and a very brief host to a variant of the Phoenix Force.
2024: Born to parents on the run and in hiding as fugitive Mutants.
2030: Orphaned during a Sentinel Attack on Xavier's school. Found barely alive by soldiers who used drugs to neutralize her.
2032: After years of torture and brainwashing / behavior modification, Rachel became a Mutant Hound. Her powers let her sense mutants and track them down.
2040: Shame, guilt, and rage over having hunted and killed mutants for the government, some of the mutants being her friends and loved ones... Rachel was finally pushed over the edge during a 'therapy' (torture) session, and broke her brainwashing and rebelled before being placed in a Mutant Internment Camp named the South Bronx Mutant Containment Facility. At this point, she was sixteen years old.
2044: Rachel had found survivors of the X-Men at the camp. Friends she made at that time included Magneto, Wolverine, and Kate Pryde, and also Franklin Richards. Over the ensuing years as romance sparked with Franklin, Rachel began to feel a sense of self worth despite the hideous brands on her face and despite her guilt and shame about her past.
2046: Pivotal was the day Rachel and Franklin found a way to neutralize their power-nullifying collars and escape with the X-Men. Freed, the X-men enacted a plan to end the evil of the Sentinels via temporal manipulation. The mind of Kate Pryde was sent back in time inhabiting her younger self to prevent the assassination of a senator. The other X-men besides Rachel and Kate were killed, but the mission seemed to succeed.
2047: Rachel's present was left unchanged despite the apparent success. Rachel was able to astral project her consciousness back in time to try to figure out what went wrong. As Rachel worked out that Kate's mind had crossed timestreams, the daughter of Jean Grey was noticed by the Phoenix Force. The Force sent part of itself into the future, where Kate Pryde bargained with it to save Rachel should the worst happen. Rachel and Kate were caught trying to destroy the advanced Sentinel prototype, Nimrod. The Phoenix Force kept its bargain with Kate, sending Rachel into the past in the timeline Kate's mind had once traveled to.
2020: Rachel appears in New York City in the past... maybe the future -can- be changed. She needs to find her friends.. she needs to find Kitty. But.. why is she on fire? What is this voice in her head telling her that she has more power than she was ever aware of?
While the determination to make sure her world never exists consumes Rachel's thoughts, as does the dream that all mankind live together in harmony, Rachel still has other sides to her personality that show when she's calm, relaxed, and enjoying the moment. Most of the time Rachel lives for the future, a better future, but in those moments when laughter, family, and friends intervene, she can 'let her hair down', and live life to its fullest.
She's still haunted by her past, though it usually only shows itself in nightmares, guilt ridden moments when her past echoes to the forefront of her mind. Nightmares that force her to re-live her days as a hound, sometimes over and over again.
Overcoming Her Past:
Rachel's personality is shaped due to her past, and yet, she is now learning to not ever let it define who she is. She is a strong willed, determined, and vivacious young woman who's overcome a great deal of tragedy to become the person she is now.
To sum up Rachel in one word would be to call her a survivor. Rachel has lived through a post apocalyptic world, has been put through hell and back, and she's always managed to survive. While she may have been beaten down as a child, now that she is free from the Sentinel's programming, she has only become stronger because of it. She will never be broken or manipulated again, and woe be to anyone who may try.
Rachel can project her consciousness out astrally. This takes a lot of effort and time to perform, and can only be maintained for a short duration at present, but in this form she can only be perceived by those capable of seeing astral forms, and can travel at vast speeds at an unlimited range where it can be barred by magical or psionic shielding and can perceive the world around it. At present, it takes so much focus for her to project that she cannot use her telepathic or telekinetic abilities while projected astrally.
Rachel has strong Empathic powers, allowing her to feel the emotions of others, but also to alter them. She can influence others with emotions of her choice... changing the feelings, sensations, and emotions of organic sentients.
She can control herself and fly at high speeds. When reaching supersonic speeds, she will be seen to have a full Phoenix aura about her. It is important to note, the Phoenix Force aura is just for show and has absolutely no benefit other than a spectacular light show.
Rachel protects herself with a shield of telekinetic energy that is virtually impenetrable if she is focused on it. If it is a more passive thing, then it is weaker but by no means considered 'weak'. It would take heavy high explosives, or concentrated power such as Warship scale weapons to breach it in passive mode. But every hit makes it harder to maintain. So overloading her shield is possible. Three or four blows from someone of Colossus's strength would breach it in passive mode. If she is focused on her shield to the exclusion of all else, it would take truly staggering power levels to bring it down. Something like Superman at full force, a fusion warhead, or Power Cosmic level blasts. This doesn't mean that she won't be bounced about inside the shield like a rock in a suitcase however.
Rachel can project telepathic energy directly into the mind of a target. These blasts can cause pain and neural disruption in a target. These can cause unconsciousness or even brain death if a target is already weakened or not of strong will. Or if blasted repeatedly.
An advanced version of the Illusions, Rachel can simply make a target (or multiple targets for shorter duration in direct proportion to the number of targets) unable to take action or even receive sensory input for a time while she concentrates upon them.
Rachel does not have any connection to the Phoenix Force, however, the momentary touch that Rachel did have left her with a spectacular light show - that of the Phoenix Force aura, a giant bird that can sweep about Rachel's form. This aura is absolutely harmless, useless and Rachel really tries her best not to even worry about it.
Plot Device: The Phoenix Force at its most primal is a device for the plot and story to progress forward. Anyone who is running a story or scene is encouraged to use this to provide jump off points or plot tie-ins to make things work more easily. In whatever way improves the story of course. Rachel does not have any connection to the Phoenix Force other than a momentary use which sent her to this timeline, at which point the Phoenix Force left her again to do - whatever it is that it does.
When used offensively, she can project blasts of staggering force. These are kinetic energy at its most basic, so anyone capable of resisting such pure force can handle them. She can crush an armored tank with one of these blasts. In times of great stress, Rachel can double these attacks, although her temper tends to get the best of her making her control far less attuned and focused. At all times, Rachel tries to not let go of her discipline and control if possible.
Rachel possesses Omega level Telekinetic abilities. When used at its most basic level, she can move massive amounts of weight or project vast amounts of telekinetic force. She can alter her clothing, carry things aloft, and other applications. There are some applications that she can perform of a more subtle and detailed nature detailed in other entries.
The power that made her valued as a hound, Rachel can sense the presence of psychic beings or at closer range, she can actually sense mutant genetics via her psionic sensory abilities.
She has the ability to place images in the minds of others that are realistic enough to make them interact with the illusions. With a push, it can go so deep that the target only thinks they are responding to them when in reality they are merely frozen and it is all in their mind.
Rachel's power level is classified as an Omega Level Mutant. This puts her potential off of many charts. Rachel has not achieved her full potential as a telepath, there is always room for improvement and better understanding of what she can do. She can read minds and transmit her thoughts to human or animal minds within a range that has yet to be fully measured. She only knows that it is vast. Rachel's psionic abilities shield her own mind subconsciously. It would take a tremendous amount of telepathic power to breach her defenses. There are additional uses detailed in other entries.
While not a full expert, Rachel trained in hand to hand combat in her timeline since battle was around the corner at any given moment. She can take care of herself in most mundane situations without resorting to her powers.
Rachel is also adept at taking machines apart and putting them back together. She had many chances to learn the ins and outs of how advanced technology functioned. For example... Sentinels. So she is quite adept at learning such things.
In her future, Rachel trained in picking locks and all of the various skills one might use as a Cat Burgler. She could do some serious B&E damage if she chose to.
Rachel is the daughter of Phoenix and Scott Summers from an alternate, dystopian future. In order to get from that point in time and space to this one, The Phoenix Force bonded temporarily with Rachel. Thus, Rachel has (for a brief moment) been the host to the Phoenix Force, which is the sentient sum of all psionic power in the universe. The Phoenix Force left her swiftly afterwards and Rachel does not have any further connection to it.
In the future, Rachel worked with the X-Men. In the present day, there is no reason to believe that she will not be taken in by them and treated as an ally and / or family.
Rachel has a pretty bad temper. This can, (and has) gotten her in trouble on more than one occasion. When her emotions are at this heightened stage, Rachel runs the risk of losing control of her powers, and having them run rampant, affecting friends and foes alike. She must maintain a cool under fire composure at all times - which is not easy.
She was not aware of this, but the marks on her face and back had a more interesting effect than pure cosmetic. In her future, they had embedded nanotech that would, when activated, allow her to be tracked. They are not active currently, but if discovered, they could be used against her and against anyone near to her as it is remotely possible that they could be used to disrupt her nervous system.
Rachel is a pretty powerful mutant in her own right, however, she has never had to deal much with magic, nor things of the mystical nature. She cannot affect or override magical curses or other effects.
Due to her time of torture and brainwashing, Rachel is emotionally scarred and traumatized. At any given time, things she sees or otherwise perceives could cause her to have flashbacks or to react in an irrational way. Seeing a young girl crying might make her lash out at the perceived cause of this, even if it was just that the child dropped her ice cream cone, for example.
