Devil's Spark is the name used by an individual currently operating in the Rogue Isles as a mercenary for hire. Electrically powered and trained in martial arts she specialises in disruptive assaults and sabotage.
To say Devil's Spark is unstable would be an understatement. After witnessing the brutal torture and murder of her mother as part of the internacine warfare which overtook the Rogue Isles in the alternate future she came from and forging a pact with a daemon in order to travel back in order to use her knowledge of the future for her own personal gain Spark's grasp on what is real is tenuous at best. Constantly confusing her memories with current events and mistaking people for their grandchildren as well as trying to reshape the world to something more in line with what she once knew has marked her as an oddball loose cannon who not even Arachnos have been able to rein in.
Naturally gifted with the power to generate large electrical charges within her body, it wasn't until Alexis underwent a radical series of implantation surgeries embedding nanotechnology into her nervous system that she became able to control the charge. Slowly learning new ways to focus and channel the power Devil's Spark can be a very demanding opponent in close combat.
Growing up under her mother's watchful eye Devil's Spark was trained by Devil's Harlot in the art of stealth and the quiet kill. Although she prefers a more direct style of combat than her mother used Spark took the lessons to heart, using the skills to get herself into places where others simply would not be able to, before causing as much damage as possible.
Along with using her electrically charged ability to cause damage Devil's Spark has learned how to use it to generate inverse electromagnetic fields. These fields allow her to break free of the Earth's own gravitational field, letting her soar through the air. So far her aerodynamic abilities leave a lot to be desired, but luckily her naturally tough physiology has allowed her to survive slamming through the occasional wall.
Threat Identification Report
While she has no qualms showing her true form, Devil's Spark has learnt with experience that her less than human appearance can hamper her business dealings. This has led to her developing a costume which allows her to pass amongst the other villains of the Rogue Isles without comment. As well as hiding her unusual face her costume also gives Spark plenty of storage for whatever small items she may encounter on her travels, and with her magnetic fingers the number of valuable items which seem to vanish whenever she passes by make such storage essential. The costume also incorporates lightweight armour weave polymer plating which gives Spark some limited protection from both baseball bats and light arms fire.
While performing a mission for Kalinda out of Mercy Island Devil's Spark was given the opportunity to travel to Paragon City and steal the cape from a hero who was tasked with protecting two famous commemorative statues. Although she was successful in her task the cape she recovered was slightly damaged in the ensuing violence which left the town packed with the bodies of Longbow agents and the eviscerated remains of the hero. Now she wears the tattered remnants of the cape as a trophy of her victory.
When not on a murderous rampage through Paragon City or hunting valuable items in the dark shadows of the Rogue Isles Alexis likes to spend her time in the extra-dimensional nightclub Pocket D. Regularly seen hanging around DJ Zero like a good little groupie she flaunts her mutated facial features, her oversized maw smiling broadly letting anyone who looks get a good view of her sharpened teeth.
The accessories decorating her party outfit are made of highly conductive metal, helping to channel her electrokinetic powers just in case she runs into someone she needs to wait for outside the club. Her padded bra is simply to draw her pray in close enough her her to get a good bite.
- Devil's Spark suffers from chronic headaches which can leave her incapacitated for days.
