Alejandra is a student with Squadron X, although she already has a professional singing career that has catapulted her to international fame.
When Alejandra Graciano was only thirteen her latent mutant abilities began to develop, although she would not realize her full potential until several years later. Alejandra was noticed by a record executive named Pepe Ramon as she was singing during a school play, and her voice was the most beautiful that Pepe ever heard. Pepe immediately arranged for Alejandra to audition for him, and her life has become a whirlwind of success ever since.
In only five years Alejandra has achieved what most aspiring young starlets never do. Alejandra has released multiple platinum pop albums in Spanish, Portuguese, and English under Ramon Records, and she has several Grammy and international music awards to her credit. Alejandra also endorses a number of commercialized products ranging from clothing and perfume to soft drinks, and her international fanbase is without equal.
Alejandra came under fire in early 2008, as her mutant abilities to manipulate and control sound were only recently attributed to her singing talents. Industry purists have blasted Ramon Records and Alejandra for 'cheating' in a business where pop stars like Shakira and Christina Aguilera became divas without the use of mutant abilities. So far these attacks have done little to damage Alejandra's reputation and sales, but for the moment she is taking a hiatus from performing.
Alejandra has come to Paragon City to learn how to develop her abilities more precisely. Already she has a masterful control over the tone and pitch of her voice; no range is beyond her ability and she can perfectly mimic any voice or sound in the infrasonic and ultrasonic frequencies. Under the guidance of GIFT Alejandra was enrolled in a mutant program called Squadron X where she is learning to use her powers to more effectively manipulate and focus soundwaves into additional forms such as sonic barriers and blasts of sonic energy.
Alejandra can manipulate and magnify sound in a variety of ways. She can reach into the full spectrums of infrasound and ultrasound, allowing her to achieve a variety of effects such as making people feel nausea, shattering glass, and amplifying or dampening sound in an area. Living targets and inanimate objects can be weakened by the sonic vibrations Alejandra can focus within them, allowing her to more quickly and safely subdue a living target or to destroy an object.
Alejandra can also emit a full range of sound using her voice. She can sing in any tone or pitch, mimic any sound or voice she has heard with 100% clarity, or project magnified whispers into the ear of someone she can see in the distance. When she really lets loose, Alejandra can project loud, deafening blasts of sonic energy in focused waves or more broadly in front of her.
- Echolocation: Alejandra has learned how to use sound in ways to replicate SONAR, allowing her to effectively see in the dark or underwater at great distances.
- Hyperhearing: Alejandra can also magnify sound over great distances and become a living doppler device, eavesdropping on conversations without being seen. Alejandra can also use this ability to detect heartbeats or breathing irregularities that may indicate when someone is lying to her.
