Inside Out Girl
From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
In addition to the more obvious dangers of roaming gangs of cyborgs, ninja and fascists, Paragon City is full of other, more subtle dangers. When the plot device that triggered the appearance of superheroes was activated, seemingly ordinary household objects were suddenly able to mutate, mutilate or otherwise transform people into super-powered individuals. This was discovered the hard way by Inside Out Girl after a particularly gruesome encounter with a pool vent.
You're probably better off not knowing the details.
Because having all your internal organs on the outside isn't nearly horrifying enough, Inside Out Girl can cause large shards of bone to protrude from her flesh, serving as both melee and projectile weapons. It's a lot more effective than it has any right to be, mostly because her opponents are too busy puking to fight back.
Not surprisingly, IoG can also heal the injuries that come with using chunks of your skeletal system to kill people, along with most everything else that gets thrown (or swung, or shot) at her. Nobody was quite sure as to how this came to be, but investigators concluded that her genetic make-up was altered by the slightly above-average amount of chlorine in the pool.
While she can return herself to a state where her insides are back on the inside, she usually doesn't. The only exceptions to this are the times when she runs around naked for a bit to attract attention before returning to "normal," covering everyone in a fifteen foot radius with blood and creating a noise that sounds like a cross between duct tape being pulled off a slab of beef and a large piece of gelatin being sucked into a vacuum.
The city council doesn't like it much when she does this.
Thanks to inverted leg tendons, IoG is capable of leaping hundreds of feet in a single bound. At least that's how we're explaining it. I wouldn't pry too much into the details if I were you; nobody likes it when people get nosy, you know?
- IoG's "Outside-In Girl" schtick is in the top 50 for most frequently posted material on Futaba Channel's guro board. Fucking Japan.
This article could stand to be fleshed out a bit more by any Jerks in the know. Do you see what I did, there?
