Born with severe birth defects that cost her both her arms as well as the lower halves of both legs, Farrah Spiegel was fitted with lightweight prosthetics at a young age by her genius inventor father. However, her new cyberlimbs stood out quite readily, and all the way from elementary school to her senior year at Paragon High, she had to put up with being alienated by the bulk of her peers, even many of the superpowered ones.

Inheriting her father's inventive nature, Farrah devised a set of light-manipulating forearm assemblies that would allow her to finally blend in with everyone else. But when a few of her superpowered classmates, whatever the reason, began to feel jealous of her, they tried to humiliate her in the middle of her senior prom.

Not many were sure what they witnessed that night, but when a mutant classmate of hers tried to short-circuit her gauntlets with their electrical powers, the light around her began to coalesce into a solid wall of force. Initially stunned, Farrah quickly realized that her custom electronics work was capable of casting illusions and bending light much further than simply around her own body. Unfortunately, her newfound powers only worked so well, and she also discovered that she couldn't maintain her own illusions and influence others at the same time.

Nevertheless, she resolved that she would use her powers over the things people perceive to aid others, and to make sure that no one who was simply trying to be a person would ever be made to feel like anything less.


Farrah is a generally likable individual. She's honest, polite, and eager to help. However, all the alienation she's felt for most of her life kind of keeps her from stepping forward as a true leader. Despite doing her damnedest to help others try to fit in, Farrah still often feels like she stands out, and never in a good way. She is incredibly sensitive about her appearance, and usually tries to maintain as low a profile as she can. Her father an inventor and her mother a retired hero, Farrah also feels like a lot of pressure is on her to live up to both their expectations.

She's also very sensitive about her limbs, and would prefer that they go without acknowledgment as much as possible.

Powers and Abilities

Farrah's arms and lower-legs have been replaced with lightweight cybernetics. The alloys used to make her "normal" limbs sacrifice some strength for weight, and so she prefers to move with the assistance of a flight belt of her father's design. Her lower arms are completely modular in design, and when she changes into her Fearsphere outfit she replaces both forearms with the illusion-casting emitter arrays she devised. These arrays give her the ability to manipulate light, to a degree beyond what she had originally designed them for. They can even create "solid" force fields that she can use to protect herself or shield others, as well as solid light constructs in a variety of forms. However, they are by and large limited to either use on herself or others, not both at the same time.

She is also a technical genius, taking after her father in that regard, and frequently works on her gear in an effort to enhance them even further. It is possible she could adjust her cybernetics to provide some kind of function that would be entirely unintentional but ultimately beneficial.
