Tandy has more growing up to do. She's dodged some of life's challenges she could probably tough out with some more patience, but she doesn't have very much. She can be more stubborn than flighty but often has a one-track mind to do something or get something done for herself, putting off other things for random reasons.

Self Determined:
Some might call her stubborn; she prefers to call it focused. Her dream of becoming a prima ballerina taught her the value of constant work and setting goals.

Self Reliant:
Though very close to her partner Cloak, Tandy's first impulse is to make decisions on her own then to consult with others about their take on a particular problem. Impulsive action over well-thought out action sometimes being the operative words.

Tandy empathizes with other people's suffering; her time on the streets has helped her to identify with the homeless and disenfranchised. She is willing to sacrifice her safety to help others, putting their needs before her own. The core of her vigilantism is using her new-found powers for the good of others.

Life on the streets and living rough has taught her to be wary and suspicious of other people's motives. She moves through the streets to combat crime with respect for the dangers she might encounter.

Tandy has been through a lot in life but she's put up with most of it by going her own way. Tandy has a hard edge and she doesn't take any crap. Not much anyway, before she speaks up. She doesn't have much patience but she has a strong personal conviction and determination to make up for it.

Character Sheet

Tandy can create an aura of light around her which she can release in a shockwave of light energy. The flash can have a variety of effects from temporary blindness, pressure concussion, or a dagger-like affect. She is able to control the aura, increasing temperatures high enough to melt steel; its brightness can exceed thousands of lumens.

Tandy creates daggers out of lightforce and can throw or project them from her hands. She can manifest them in a variety of forms under her direct control. They can solidify as hard as diamond and can ricochet off hard surfaces to redirect towards the targets. The daggers can shatter on mental command, disperse or reduce in size. With speeds as fast as a bullet, the daggers can shock the human nervous system on contact by "draining" a person's life force, thereby making them weak, loopy and vulnerable to further injury or death. The effect usually has varying results depending on the size and will of the target, at worst, it will feel like a hard punch, at best, a dagger can knock somebody out.

Tandy taps into psionic energy, a universal energy shared by all beings but intensified by her mutations. This energy or "lightforce" has a direct affect on her well being. She can generate more lightforce at will and regularly needs to discharge it to keep it at manageable levels.

Too much light will adversely affect her moods making her restless, distant and cruel. Too little light weakens her and could possibly be fatal.

The Light is a pure form of energy that can cleanse disease and toxins from most beings on touch. It has a strong sentient will of its own and can act contrary to malignant forces. The Light can cleanse certain malignant forces trying to invade others or invade her aura.

Tandy can combine lightforce daggers into a solid sword or staff for hand to hand combat. The light sword shaped like a normal longsword is ten times harder than steel.

Tandy is a trained dancer with above average flexibility and strength that is intensified by her wielding the light force. Though not trained in martial arts her amplified speed gives her an edge in street fights.

Left high school before graduating. A GED is surely in her future.

Tandy is an amateur urban survivalist. She has a surprisingly big amount of knowledge about the streets and New York in general. She has good instincts about the city and contacts in the police, as well as the local churches for news.

Tandy has befriended the priests at Holy Ghost Church on 42nd Street and neighboring churches, who believe she is an angelic woman gifted with The Light. They have been a lifeline for her in times of need.

These remain to be developed. Her hope is to work with other crime fighters. Strength in numbers!

Boiling Light:
Tandy can burn out with a high fever, growing sick if she does not purge or use some of the lightforce within her every day. Accumulating too much of her power is potentially fatal.

Flighty, unsure of herself at times, her naivety has both helped and harmed her. Inexperience with people causes her to overestimate or underestimate them. She can be overly suspicious of others, likely to be judgmental. This stems from the key relationships in her life, mother, father, and step-father having abandoned her. Her self-involved mother, consumed by her acting career, invested her energy into the rush and glamour of the entertainment industry. In the case of her father, he left the family and his fortune to seek enlightenment in India.

Tandy is a homeless teenager without a stable network of people that care for her. She relies almost exclusively on Cloak. Living rough is just that: rough. Since making a pact with Cloak to become a vigilante, she has dropped the rich girl cons she had been running. But, she remains suspicious of others, expecting the worst of them before allowing them into her life.

Mob Target:
Simon Marshall, a member of the mob and the man responsible for the drug experiments that produced her mutations, has been running drugs in New York for some years. A dangerous man, he represents a constant peril to Cloak and Dagger.

Tandy doesn't have the backing most people do and she's lacking resources, such as a permanent residence and a regular job. She is disconnected from her family and her school attendance in her hometown is nonexistent, and in New York it's not much better.
