Dr. Zofia Markov is a stage performer, magician, burlesque artist, and dilettante who mysteriously vanished during a performance on Broadway in 1927. The mystery of her disappearance was solved 80 years later to the day, when she was found laying unconscious on the site of the old theatre, long since demolished.



Dr. Markov disappeared during a performance in a run-down theatre off of Broadway. She had already encountered some criticism in the press for showing 'too much skin' during her combination magician/burlesque act, compounded with rumors that she was engaging in "scandalous behavior" with some of the other burlesque dancers in the revue. To refocus attention on her mastery of magnetics, she attempted a trick where in she magnetically levitated herself inside a metal tube, and then cloaked it from view.

According to eyewitness reports, the metal coffin she was in began to spin rapidly, and then "vanished with a loud thunderclap noise, with a large gust of wind toward the stage, which also doused the house lights." Instead of merely being invisible, it appeared that she had actually managed to displace the tube from material space!

Her reappearance in 2007 was equally spectacular. The theatre she'd disappeared from had been demolished, and construction was about to begin to put up a parking structure. The construction crew discovered that all of their earthmoving equipment had been destroyed or damaged, "riddled with shrapnel" and overturned as if a bomb had gone off in their midst. In the middle of a small crater next to what was the operations shack, they found Dr. Markov, unconscious, but alive and healthy. All ferrous metal within a 100 foot radius had been magnetized, the 'north pole' of all of it centered on her. The last thing she remembered was "feeling a surge of power" inside the coffin not ten minutes after she entered it during her stage act!

Once her bona fides had been established, she was sent to Paragon for training, as well as 're-integration' with modern society. She is quite happy that social mores have "matured" to the point where her showing some leg isn't frowned upon. She is also pleased to see women engaging in lesbian behavior openly, with no repercussions; apparently the rumors about her back in the 1920's were correct.


All of Dr. Markov's powers come from the enchanted belt she wears around her waist, the "Girdle of Galatea". It is a gold belt with a faceted onyx stone set in the center. It emits a strong magical aura. It will always be within arms reach, and will teleport to her side if removed further than 100 feet. Anyone picking it up will have a strong compulsion to hand it to her with both hands, as if presenting a gift.

On some occasions the person may feel the desire to present themselves to Dr. Markov along with the belt; this is more likely with young females with little to no experience with sex, submissive personalities, and/or hidden or repressed lesbian desires. Males are almost always immune to the latter compulsion, while the former is so strong as to make them practically drop it in her lap and walk away. This compulsion lasts for about an hour once the belt has changed hands, and then fades.

It is not known why the Girdle has chosen Dr. Markov as its 'avatar'. The artifact does not appear to be intelligent in and of itself.

Weaknesses and Limitations


Dr. Markov has a pronounced Russian accent, and her English vocabulary is definitely lacking in modern terminology and concepts.
