Flamabelle is a teenage superhero in Paragon City. Possessing powerful fire control powers, Flamabelle is a member of the Young Gods of the Golden Age and serves as a part-time hero while completing High School.
Carly Boyd's life started out fairly typical. She was a member of the in-crowd at Benjamin Franklin High School in Paragon City. She had it all; looks, brains and a potentially bright future. However, sometimes things don't turn out as we hope they do.
While at a barbecue at her friends house, Carly had begun to suffer a blinding headache; along with an elevated temperature which seemed to be rising quickly. As her headache and fever continued to rise, Carly prayed for the pain stop. Then all at once, the neighbors tool shed suddenly caught on fire. The fire department came, and the sudden blaze was blamed on a carelessly tossed cigarette.
However, soon afterward, Carly came to witness more unexplained fires everywhere she went. She then realized that she was the one who was causing the fires to suddenly appear; and she went to her parents about it. Her parents, worried about their daughter, consulted their family doctor; who in turn directed them to see the people at Freedom Corps.
The doctors at Freedom Corps determined that Carly's abilities were the result of a mutation. She was developing the ability to create and control fire. She was offered training it the use of her growing powers so to help her avoid a potentially deadly situation. Carly and her parents agreed to it.
The initial training lasted three weeks. Other heroes with powers similar to hers would come and help her to understand and use her powers better. In time, Carly did manage to get better control, although she still remained cautious about using them in order to keep from getting out of control.
Besides herself, Carly saw that there were other teens like her who were learning to use their powers too. Many of them planned to use their powers to help in the city as heroes. Carly, intrigued by this, decided to do the same.
Her parents at first balked at the idea of their little girl running around in tights and fighting crime. However Carly assured them she would be careful. And also that she would continue her schooling while fighting crime. Eventually, her parents decided to support her decision; her mother going so far as to make her first costume. Carly decided to use the codename Cinder Lass, and so began her new life as a superhero.
Shortly after starting her career as a superhero, Cinder Lass was recruited by the Young Gods of the Golden Age, and has remained a steadfast member of that team for a couple of years. She has fought many of Paragon City's and the worlds most powerful and dangerous villains from the lowliest street gangs, to some of the greatest threats the world as seen such as Nemesis and even Lord Recluse. While at the same time, working hard in school and somehow having a social life outside the superhero community.
Recently Carly's mother Lynn, who now works in City Hall with the Superhero Licensing Bureau gave her daughter a new codename as a Christmas gift: Flamabelle. At first not understanding why, Carly quickly discovered the reason for the name change. Her twin sister Kaley, had also begun exhibiting abilities and was undergoing training as a hero. However unlike Carly, Kaley is able to create ice from the moisture in the air. She also has an appropriate codename; Frostbelle.
