A mildly famous Avengers. Daughter of Magneto, a terrorist turned world-leader. Witch. Hero. Many words could be used to define the Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff. She is one of the world's great practitioners of magic, possessing her own mutant Chaos Magic which enhanced by demonic intervention. From torturous paths of childhood, Wanda has finally found her way alongside her twin brother Pietro.
* 1990 In the shadow of Wundragore Mountain, twin babies Wanda and Pietro were given to Marya and Django Maximoff to raise.
* 1997 Villagers attacked their Romani camp over thievery and a belief Wanda had attacked a village boy. Marya was believed burned alive in the wagon. Django yelled at the children to run while he was being beaten. Pietro carried his sister away with his super speed. Twins live a hard life on their own afterwards.
* 1999 First encounter with Chthon cultists.
* 2005 Magneto reveals he is the twins father.
* 2010 Twins leave Magneto and go to America.
* 2011 Wanda begins receiving tutoring from Agatha Harkness and others.
* 2018 Helps repel Loki's attacks. Later joins Avengers. Reconciles with Magneto.
* 2019 Receives Masters in History for Columbia University
Wanda possesses a great depth of caring for others in the world around her. Her time with Magneto during some of his more extreme days never sat right with her in part because of the harm he was willing to see done to humans. She has a soft heart for children, and those hurting them can draw her ire.
Wanda suffers from some form of mental illness which can be expressed in many ways. Including indecision or doubting herself, though her training with the Avengers has aided her there. She's also affected heavily by the health of the world and timeline around her. Though she doesn't understand that is the source of her occasional funks.
Wanda has a gentle side to her. Laid back and largely unpretentious except for a guilty love of certain types of clothing. She is rarely forward, is unlikely to upset those around her.
Wanda had very little for much of her life. Parents that she lost, leaving her with just her twin brother to depend on and who depended on her. She is intensively protective of Pietro, but also of others that she comes to care about. She is capable of lashing out in protection, or undertaking great efforts for those she cares about.
Wanda's main power is the ability to control and manipulate probabilities, warping energy fields and matter in doing so. Her mutant power was enhanced by the demon Chthon and possibly altered further by the High Evolutionary when she was a baby. Wanda can cause unlikely scenarios to happen. The degree of concentration required varies with the effect. She is capable of change on a phenomenal scale when at her best.
Examples of effects she can produce include:
* Melting and spontaneous combustion
* Healing, decaying or breaking
* Molecular matter control including transmutation and changing state
* Power negation
* Physical destruction
* Force fields and deflecting energy or magic attacks
* Bestow good or bad luck, immediately or for a time to come
Wanda was blessed by Chthon as a child, intending for her to be a vessel for him to return to the world. This connection to Chthon also gives Wanda a connection to Chthon's siblings, Set, Gaea and Oshtur, as well as the Demiurge and the Vishanti. Wanda can seek to use this divine connection to receive aid through magic rituals and spells that appeal to these divine beings. The divine beings would be in control of the power and nature of the effects that they might grant.
Wanda's first and simplest form of her mutant power are bolts of Chaos magic. These require far less concentration than greater manipulations of her Chaos magic and are nearly second-nature for her to cast. They can take the form of blasts of energy capable of destroying matter or living beings, though she is reluctant to use them on the latter. Bad luck can be bestowed on opponents, and shields and wards can quickly be formed almost instinctively to deflect physical, energy and magic attacks.
Though she does not realize it yet, the Scarlet Witch is the Nexus Being. She is the center of magical energies, and can potentially tap into them for her own use. If this were ever mastered it would put on her a level with the Phoenix Force for sheer power, capable of otherwise impossible feats. She could change time and rewrite fate. However Wanda is not aware of this, and any amount of tapping into this power is currently unintentional, likely to happen during great emotion.
Wanda is also affected by the state of reality around her then. Her mental health can deteriorate when reality is at risk, or when things are likely to take a turn for the worse. She thinks of them only as mental fugues that take her, not realizing their source.
Wanda has developed the kind of mastery of self necessary to wield and control the powerful magics that she is capable of. She is of strong mental fortitude and skilled at resisting mental influences. Wanda is able to hold her concentration when casting magic despite the world falling apart around her. The exception is her own mental state provides a chink in this armor.
Though most people think of Wanda's mutant Chaos Magic when they think of her abilities, she is also skilled in the traditional arts of witches and sorcerers. Potions, hexes, protection circles, exorcisms, healing poultices and many traditional forms of magic are at her disposal. She understands many different cultural forms of magic, having been heavily studied on the matter by luminaries of magic such as Agatha Harkness and the Sorcerer Supreme. Between her own powers and her knowledge of other magical spells, Wanda is one of the beings who could herself contend for Sorcerer Supreme.
Wanda's senses extend beyond the natural ones. She is able to sense magic, auras, and supernatural energy around her. She might be able to notice ghosts, concealed foes, the invisible and illusions in her vicinity. She may be able to divine information about other magic done around her or in a location, figuring out the type of magic, or with familiarity perhaps even the source. Her senses are not infallible though, and there are ways to ward against them or at least make it more difficult for her.
Wanda has a graduate level education in History for Columbia, augmented by personal pursuits and mentoring under luminaries like Agatha Harkness. She also has attained on her own one of the best understandings of probability and chaos theory on the planet. Her mutant ability lets her understand the subjects on a nearly innate level.
Wanda has been using her powers in combat situations for long enough to have grown skilled in their use. She's trained with some of the greatest warriors in history during her time with the Avengers. She knows enough of hand to hand fighting and martial arts to be effective even without her powers, though by superhero standards she is on the lower end. She maintains a high level of physical fitness though falls short of Olympic caliber athletes.
Wanda is capable of speaking most languages, either from having mastered them or via use of her magic abilities, both mutant and traditional. She is versed in Eastern European languages especially, but also can speak ancient tongues learned under the watchful eye of her mentor.
Wanda is an authority on the Occult and has access to sizable collections on mystical matters. She is skilled at researching effects, items, spells, mystic entities and dimensions. With enough time she can usually investigate a matter thoroughly enough to generate ways of dealing with it. Her strengths included European magic traditions, other dimensional beings and their banishing.
Wanda and Pietro had to rough it for many years. She is adept at finding and making shelter, making fires, scavenging for food, even tracking small game. She could make it through a couple of winter's nights in the wild (assuming she didn't teleport to a spa).
Wanda's mentor is sorceress Agatha Harkness who was alive in the early days of Atlantis. Agatha is associated with witches in New Salem. She is as close as a mother to Wanda, and the two share a strong bond with each other. Agatha is a great source of magical knowledge and assistance.
Like most great practitioners of magic, Wanda has built up quite a collection of tomes, antiquities, magical artifacts, rare ingredients and components. Some are kept for safe-keeping, others for her use. She may be able to put her hands on useful items that are well-suited for meeting the sort of challenges that Avengers run into.
Wanda is an Avenger, which allows her to call on Earth's Mightiest Heroes for backup. It also means they may call on her, and as the member of the team with the ability to teleport, she can often be one of the first called for some sorts of situations. She mainly lives at Avenger's Mansion and makes use of vehicles, both autos and aircraft, from the Avenger's fleet.
Being the Nexus Being gives Wanda a tremendous connection to the magical energy that flows throughout the Earth. While she does not yet understand she is the Nexus Being, the energy is there to be had. Wanda's understanding of her nature has not grown enough for her to truly make use of such tremendous mystical force on anything but rare occasions.
The mystic arts are a community of practitioners, and Wanda is well thought of amongst them. She can call on numerous others for information, advice, or other aid. Some are friends, and others may require payment, or worse, for their help.
Wanda has a soft spot for children. Always has, always will. She will put herself in harms way to save them, or may bypass other empirically more important objectives when children are in danger.
Wanda was prepared by Chthon to be a vessel he could use to inhabit this world. His minions have been after her to try to make that happen since her powers first manifested. It was from his cult that she and Pietro were frequently on the run as children. They still make attempts, but Wanda's growing skill and being surrounded by Avengers mean their plots have had to become more insidious in response.
Wanda suffers from what many would call mental illness. It may be more spiritual than that, however, a failure to maintain a proper equilibrium between her mind and her spirit. This is made worse by her connection to the world from being the Nexus Being, as that outside influence can knock her off center. Her powers can be affected by her mental state, including causing effects she did not intend. Worse, she is capable of lashing out in anger and releasing her powers in ways that might have appalled her if she'd thought beforehand.
Strength. Weakness. Ok let's face it, weakness even for all of the strength he brings Wanda. Pietro is the one person who has been there for Wanda her entire life. He also doesn't have the best head on his shoulder. But the two share a bond that is beyond close. However they are in many ways polar opposites. Early in life Wanda followed Pietro's lead. But as time has changed, Wanda is more likely to guide them, which doesn't necessarily always sit well with her brother. Still, he is the closest person she has, and she will move heaven and earth should he be in danger.
