From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Former Outcast, reluctant hero, no-name punk rock singer and bad tempered "Next Gen" member. Alexandra Cale is not the girl your want to introduce to your mom...
Skills & Powers:
Alexandra is something thats not very popular in the mutant community. A tracker who can sense other mutants and their powers on sight. The rest of her body is adapted perfectly to the role of a hunter. She has heightened reflexes, strength and hand-eye coordination combined with a catlike abilitly to leap and fall. Since she posseses no supernatural toughness their are limits to the applications of her strength. In theory she has enough power to punsh through steel but her arm would break from the impact long before the metal gave in. Fortunately she has an instinctive sense on how to use it without hurting herself. She also knows how much to use to hurt others... . In essence her powers simply take her to and above the peak of human fighting capability without ever training a moment for it. Her body keeps in perfect shape even after weeks of partying, fast food and sleeping in. One of the side effects of this heightened metabolism is the fact that she eats enough to make ten weight conscious girls cry since she burns through nutrients like there's no tomorow. The fact that her body is allways on overdrive might also cause her to age more quickly than normal humans but if she knows about it she doesn't talk...
Personality Keywords: Daring, Impatien, Ironic, Distant Overall Personality: Shade has a rather bitter view of the world.

She still has trouble to allow herself more than causuall friendliness though and keeps her distance if she can.

Brief Personal History:
Alexandra live a pretty normal live till she turned 14 and her mutant powers manifested. Her family had no tolerance for mutants and threw her out and she ended up in some street gangs until she worked her way up to the outcasts in Paragon City. Since she had no elemental powers she never worked her way far up the ladder and that might have saved her from ever actualy killing anyone. Maybe it was her consience but she never claims that. She was arrested during a robbery and only the fact Antonio Nash put in a good word for her kept her from prison. He still knew her from his own time. Right now she is on parole and claims to do favours for Nash and his friends since it looks good on her record. It might also be the only way she is still allowed to fight and her enhanced body is almost addicted to that. Or maybe she even does want to do the right thing. She'd certainly never admit that.
