If your clever you can usually figure out from the clues (comes from Seattle, hangs out with a cyber-enhanced guy) that she is - in fact - a Paragon reinvention of a Shadowrun character. As Zarp's player put it, "She's an elf... with a big f***ing gun!" Her original concept was she dual-wielded 1-handed machine guns, but since there's no Blaster dual-pistol set, one big gun would have to do.
Mom and Dad
Margaret's parents were human once, coming from opposite sides of america, but met because they were alike that when they hit puberty discovered they were mutants (think X-men here), exhibiting elven features and inclinations. Her parents were married, moved to Seattle - in the suburbs where they could be close to the forest, and settled down to have a family. They lived a very normal life there, with jobs, a house, two cars, and a mortgage. Mackie was raised to be close to nature and the earth. Also, quite by accident, she discovered she had a special power. If she touched anything technological, she immediately knew how it worked. It began touching her laptop computer in her apartment and realized she knew every detail about how it's systems functioned.
Then one day some men in white hats came. People who hated mutants (ala X-men style). Mom and dad hid their daughter in the house. The white hats men took her mother and father in the night to the forest, tied them to a tree, blindfolded them, and executed them. They then set fire to their home, Maggie inside. Before she died of the fire, a man... a hero... saved her. The same man that had her parent's murderers put in jail. He called himself Sleeper.
Sleeper was gone for many years. Maggie got a job working for a mechanic or a computer repair shop. She was very good at fixing gadgets and devices. Mackie was captured for a group of underworld slavers who sold Mackie into an underground sex trade, against her will, because she was 'pretty and exotic'. There, one day - quite by accident - she later met another mutant elf like her parents, only her age - Amaseru - that had been gifted powers - powers of healing and electricity.
A few years passed. Sleeper reappeared, rescuing the two elves from being unwilling slaves in the sex trade. They made their escape to Paragon City to settle down again and start their lives anew. Together... Sleeper and his two angels.
Because her parents died when she was young, she's always interested and curious in other elves and learning what being an elf means - no one really seems to have a firm or clear idea. She's very against slavery or anything that removes a person's right to choose. She's not very sexually or romantically open with anyone but Sleeper and Amaseru. At times she will leave a room or get upset when people are making sexual jokes. She is very firmly against any kind of intolerance. She cannot take jokes about her being an elf well because it's people that hated elves and mutants that murdered her parents.
Spends many hours struggling to remove a grilled cheese sandwich from her teleporter components.
She's a deadeye with a gun. Her powerset is AR/Dev blaster. She is natural origin because the further enhancement of her powers is done through natural means, not magical. Her gun and device *usage* is a natural ability, and requires no magic to perform. Her technopsionic powers are not usable 'in combat' as it were.
Along the same lines as Rogue in X-men, Mackie always wears gloves. She has to avoid unwanted use of her powers in bad situations. She only takes her gloves OFF specifically to use here techo-psionic powers.
