Cute green alien girl
One of the former founders of the Icons supergroup she stepped down after a year at the helm and joined the Sisterhood of Paragonian Knights. Currently she is semi-retired from heroing but when the need arises she will go to the aid of fellow Knights and friends. She has currently moved into the Paragonian Knights Legends team.
Empyreal is currently a member of the Paragonian Knights: Legends, a large and friendly supergroup. They are currently stationed in the Citadel located in the Founders Falls district of Paragon City, RI. Other people she is affiliated with are Major Law, Masked-Revenger, Stan Walker, Gwendolyn Snow,The Imperial and the Eidolon Eight
Strength level: Above olympic level
Known superhuman powers: She merged with the energies of her experimental stardrive upon crashing to Earth in July 1948. The energies have given her the ability to call upon electrical fields and also to heat the air around her to create various defensive constructs. These include fire shields, fire swords, electric blasts, tesla cages and even a voltanic sentinel she lovingly calls Fluffy.
Abilities and Limitations
Empyreal is well trained in the use of energy weapons, hand to hand combat, and space vehicles. She has a photographic memory and can remember faces, dates and places of events. She has an ability to fly both under her own power and can also generate wings when the need arises.
She is also a telepath and through the usage of this ability has helped various teams coordinate attack strategies in the heat of battle
Empyreal has aquired temporal armour and uses it when needed for various Portal Missions and task forces. She has re-enforced it for use while in the Rikti War Zone along with adding piston boots.
Born on the peaceful world of Aries Nova. When she was eight her world was attacked from beyond by the Rikti. It went quickly from a peaceful manufacturing and farming planet to one geared for war. Everyone became part of the military. Kindra entered into service at the age of ten by applying to the academy. She quickly rose through the ranks of the academy then joined into actual combat training at the age of 16.
By the time she reached 20 she had a full squadron under her but still she had a need for something more. The ruling council of her planet approached her about going to Earth after receiving information from one of their scouts. The scout had found out about an impending invasion of Earth. The council had made the decision to help the primative planet fend off the invaders just as they had.
At 25 she was given an experimental scout ship in order to make her journey to Earth even faster. It had a new dwarf star drive. Literally harnessing a miniature sun as a power source. Having tested it for a year after it was built she prepared for her journey on her 26th birthday. She would be in cryo-sleep most of the way. It would conserve both her mental and physical well being. The Aresians were experts in long range exploration and it would take her 10 more years to reach her destination.
Ten years later she was awakened to alarms going off and almost a complete system failure. But she had made it to her destination planet, Earth. With shields failing upon planetary entry she had no choice but to crash the ship. The ship flashed out of the sky over a little town in New Mexico. The date was around July 2nd 1947. She crashed in a farmer's field and lay there unconcious. Unknown to her the energies from the drive merged with her cellular structure and began igniting new abilities within her.
Kindra woke to find military personel scouring her crash site and she herself was strapped to a wheeled cart of some sort. Struggling to sit up and communicate she was instantly silenced by a mental command. It had a familiar signature to it and as she lay there quietly she studied the "soldiers". They did not move quite like the humans she had studied. They moved like her enemies, the Rikti. It was a Rikti cell, they had mutated the humans to be like them but also to blend in. Struggling with her bonds she somehow created a sword out of fire and burned through the straps holding her and was floating above the gurney.
Without much thought a blast of electricity lept from her hands and hit the aliens. She managed to take five of them down with her before she was attacked then dashed to the ground. The blast from a pulse rifle silenced her. She woke up later on at a military base and was instantly blasted back into oblivion. This time she was unconcious for a month. When she woke she was being held in power dampeners. After a year they extracted as much information out of her as possible. She was then handed over to the actual military to be used in experiments.
Crey Industries bought the labs she was being kept in. The year was 1965. They began their DNA extractions and the Crey Protector Project. The next 30 years were basically a haze of pain. She was assigned to a sadistic scientist as his pet project. He used everything possible on her to see what made her work and how he could design Countess Crey's "heroes" better and improve on each generation.
Then came the Rikti invasion. The lab was almost blown to bits except she was still shackled in power dampeners. However the dampener blocking out her telepathy was destroyed along with a group of geneticists. The lab was in Paragon City, RI. She never knew that due to having been used for all the years and never seeing the outside world. With the war raging around her she screamed out for help and it was answered. The Imperial and I-Cross had been near-by and felt her call. The two heroes ran to the facility taking several guards and Rikti agents with them. Eventually reaching the lab itself and freeing her.
After the many battles of the Rikti invasion were fought and now calling herself Empyreal on her Hero License she found the plans for weapons that she was to have delivered many years before. Including something to help the late Omega Team defeat the Rikti once and for all. Their not returning hit her very hard and she turned in her cape upon Statesman's asking just as a good amount of heroes did. However there was a silver lining. Joining with The Imperial and I-Cross, she along with Captain Comet, Posthaste, Jayce, Plasma Wisp and several other heroes formed The Icons. They used The Imperial's mansion as a base of operations and she lived in the guest house there.
After becoming chairwoman when The Imperial went away for a while on a quest she eventually grew restless and began frequenting Capes & Cocktails owned by Gwendolyn Snow. It was a regular meeting ground for the members of the Paragonian Knights and the Sisterhood of the Paragonian Knights. Empyreal eventually joined the Sisterhood after installing Plasma Wisp as the new chairman of The Icons.
The Imperial knowing her restlessness and seeing her artistic ability lent her a little money to start SMASH! Comics. She even has a few superheroes in their secret identities on her payroll too.
Today she is part of the Paragonian Knights:Legends after obtaining security level 50. She is known to appear when needed for help in Recluse's Victory, The Rikti War Zone, Lady Grey Task Force, and Stateman Task Force. Some day she has vowed to make it into raiding the Hamidon. But her favorite activity is holding the quarterly Late Night Beach Bash hosted by her good friend DJ Kid Atomic.
