36 Electricity: Elemental Control, 90-point powers, all slots Only In Heroic Identity (-1/4)
1) Arc: Killing Attack - Ranged 2d6, Affects Physical World (+2)
Notes: Paige's Arc is nowhere near as deadly as her brother's but she is very reluctant to use it as it can kill. She can use this power while in a desolid state.
2) Arc Flash: Sight and Radio Groups Flash 11d6, Explosion (+1/2), Nonselective Target (-1/4), Reduced Endurance (1/2 END; +1/4)
Notes: Flash attacks still affect desolid targets, hence if used while she is desolid, it still affect the Physical World. When she uses it, not only will it blind a target but it will also jab the Radio Spectrum. This includes the Minuteman communications.
3) Arc Travel: Teleportation 15", No Relative Velocity, Safe Blind Teleport (+1/4), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2); Not Through Non-Conductive Medium (-1/4)
Notes: Paige can teleport short distances, even into areas that are not within her line of sight. While she cannot teleport through non-conductive mediums such as glass, wood, drywall, concrete, and she can travel through metal doors, cars, and anything else with a conductive metal content, this includes electrical wiring.
4) Electric Aura: Killing Attack - Ranged 1d6, Does Not Effect Her Brother (+0), Costs END Only To Activate (+1/4), Uncontrolled (+1/2), Continuous (+1), Damage Shield (Offensive; Affects Mental And Physical Attackers; +1 1/4), Affects Physical World (+2); No Conscious Control (-2)
Notes: This power comes on automatically when she shifts to her Heroic ID, i.e. goes desolid. She cannot stop it or turn it off without leaving that state.
5) I Sing the Body Electric: Desolidification (affected by water-based attacks and her brother), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2) (60 Active Points); Not Through Non-Conductive Medium (-1/4) plus Flight 6", Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2), Persistent (+1/2), Uncontrolled (+1/2)
Notes: This is Paige's Heroic ID state. In this state Paige doesn't actually touch any surface but rather floats.

Notes: When she shifts states from physical to desolid, she begins to float a couple of feet off the ground. This puts the 'top' of her 'body' at her natural head level. She has learned to mve in this state giving her not only horizontal movement but vertical as well. She is not comfortable going much higher than the rooftop of her home. This power more or less replaces her normal Running.

Character Name: Paige Temple
Alternate Identities: Arc
Player Name: NPC
Hair Color: Sandy Blonde going Silver
Eye Color: Blue Gray, electric blue
Height: 4' 7"
Weight: 70 lbs
Paige is an attractive pre-teen of about average height and weight. She has sandy blonde hair that is going silver and gray eyes that are beginning to flash an electric blue.
Paige barely remembered her father, Preston John Temple, TV Evangelist, but what she would remember now would give her nightmares. Just yesterday, a man she did not recognize had come to the house where she lived with her mother and brother, Josh. He was much older than her mother, and had seemed very sincere. Her mother invited the man in and introduced him to Paige as her father. From there, everything was mostly a blank.

She woke in a hospital with Josh standing beside the bed holding her hand and her mother nowhere in sight. Josh was crying and even at ten she knew something terrible had happened.

“Where’s mommie?” She couldn’t hold back the tears as she asked.

Josh smiled then, even though he had tears on his cheeks. “She’s gonna be okay, sis,” he told her. “She’s in the next room. You can go see her when the doctor tells you that you can.”

“… What happened?” Paige asked.

Josh practically fell on her as he tried to hug her. His face was buried in her shoulder and she could hear his sobs.

“I’m sorry,” he hick-uped. “I should have been there …”

Instrinctively she tried to return the hug but one arm wouldn’t move and it hurt a little.

“My arm …” she said. Josh pushed himself up and she could see the white cast wrapped in a pink gauze that covered her arm from bicep to wrist. “I broke it?”

There was a flash of the old man, he had grabbed her arm and thrown her onto her bed. She remembered the sound her arm made, like a crack.

“Why did …” she started.

A woman in a white coat came in holding a clipboard.

“Good,” the woman said. “I see you are awake.”

Josh straightened and wiped his eyes. “You the doctor?” he asked.

“Dr. de Havaline, yes,” the woman said. “Just let me check a few-“

“I wanna see my mommie,” Paige interrupted.

“Tell you what,” the doctor said. “If your brother will get you a wheelchair while I check you out, he can take you to see her.”

Paige gave Josh a hopeful smile and her brother wiped his eyes again than said, “Sure.”
“Ask at the nurse’s station down the hall.”

“Okay.” And Josh was gone.

“I’m just going to shine a light in your eyes,” the woman explained and produced a tiny flashlight from a pocket.

The light made her eyes water but the doctor seemed satisfied even though she had blinked a couple times.

“How’s your arm feel?” the woman went on to ask.

“It hurts a little,” Paige told her.

“Well, I’ll give you some pills that will help that,” the doctor told her. “The cast will be on for about six weeks, can you handle that?” Paige nodded. “Good girl. Now, I think you can go home. If you’d like to get dressed, your clothes are in the closet there. I’ll have your brother come in when you’re finished.”

“Okay,” Paige said almost in a whisper. “How’s my mom?”

The serious look on the woman’s face scared her and her words didn’t relieve that feeling.

“She is bruised and two cracked ribs but she will be okay in a couple weeks. We have to keep her at least over night to make sure we didn’t miss anything.”

Josh pushed the door open with the front of the wheelchair. Behind him was a man in a black suit that Paige instantly disliked. There was something in Josh’s eyes, he was mad, really mad.

“Josh?” She began.

“Paige, this is Miller, he is a government guy,” Josh said. “He has a house for us to live in until mom is better.”

“But we have a house …” She vaguely remembered hearing sirens and people yelling … the house was on fire. “Fire?”

Josh nodded. “This man is going to give us a house to live in for now ‘cuz ours is burnt up.”

“But my dolls …”

“Mom and me’ll get you more, okay?” Josh turned on the man in the suit. “You get out of the way so she can get dressed.” He pulled the door closed as he moved out into the hall. Through the door Paige could hear the sound of voices but couldn’t understand them. Josh was yelling at the man and when he came back in he was madder than she’d ever seen him.

“What’s wrong?” she asked her red-faced brother.

“Look, stay with mom, in her room for now,” he replied. “I have to go take care of something.” He hugged her. “I’m gonna make it all right, promise.”

The nurse insisted on her using the wheelchair, which was stupid because it was her arm that was broken, not her leg, but Josh wheeled her into their mother’s room. One look at her mother’s battered face had Paige in tears again.

“She is going to be fine,” the doctor assured. “She’s sleeping now which is what she needs most. I am going to order a cot brought in for you Paige so you can get some sleep of your own.”

“That gonna be okay? Josh asked the doctor. “I don’t know how long I’ll be gone.”

“We’ve got our orders, they will stay as long as necessary,” said the doctor.

Josh kissed Paige on the forehead and hugged her before he said, “I’ll be back as soon as I can.”

“But where you going?”

“To find us someplace to live,” he siad with a smile. “A really nice place to live.”

The three of them road in silence as the black SUV that had picked them up from the hospital the next day drove through the streets of San Diego and out onto the Point Loma peninsula. It rolled up to a heavy barred gate set in a ten foot high brick wall that looked to encompass several blocks of a new housing development. Silently the gates openned and the vehicle moved inside. Paige watched out the back window as the gates closed behind them.

“Are we in jail,” she asked in a tiny voice.

Josh threw an arm around her and hugged her, “Nope, just our new neighborhood.”

They stopped before a sand colored house with red roof tiles and another gate that opened into a courtyard. Everything looked brand new to Paige. The drive got out of the truck and hurried around to open mom’s door. She moved stiffly but accepted the man’s hand as she stepped down from the high SUV.

“Thank you,” she said softly.

The man handed her a set of keys.

“Three sets for the house and two sets for the car.”

“Car,” she looked puzzled.

“Part of the deal, mom,” Josh said.

“We got a car?” Paige was wide-eyed. She was used to taking a bus everywhere.

“Yup,” Josh said. “A new one, a convertible one.”

“We can’t afford the insurance,” their mother pointed out.

Josh took the keys from her hand and escorted them into the courtyard were a fountain bubbled at the center. Paige was fascinated and it was only her mother’s call that refocused her attention. The heavy wood front doors stood wide open into a foyer of dark wood and tile flooring. Beyond that was a beautifully furnished living room.

“How?” their mother asked.

Josh ushered them into the living room and sat between them on a soft couch.

“I’m a meta-human,” Josh said simply. “And I now work for the government.”

“What does that mean, meta-human?” Paige asked.

“Means …” Josh held up a hand and blue arcs of lightning flashed from finger to finger.

“You’re an alien!” Paige crowed in delight.

Mom was more sober “What do you mean work for the government? Whose?”

“Ours, mom,” Josh replied. “I made a deal to be part of a team that will fight against other meta-humans like the one that knocked over the Washington Monument.”

“Josh, he knocked over that huge monument! What can you do against that?”

Her brother shrugged, “Me? By myself? Maybe not much … but one of the guys in the team … I bet he could do it.”

“I wanna be a meta-human too,” Paige announced. “How do I do it?”

Josh smiled and ruffled her hair a little. “I was born this way.”

“Maybe I was too!” Paige said hopefully.

It was six months before Paige got her wish.
Paige is able to alter her body into a form of coherant electricity that makes her nearly immune to all forms of attack. Being in this state and getting hit by a type of attack that uses water, however, is her one vulnerability. If struck be something like a water cannon could potentually be lethal as she does not have any defenses against physical attacks beyond a normal body's resistance.
When she assumes her Electric Body form she gains a number of powers, including a constant damage shield that makes it painful and possibly deadly to anyone coming in contact with her. Her brother appears to be immune to this effect. She is capable of generating an arc of electrical force while desolid that will still affect those in the material world. While it is not immediately deadly to an average person, repeated use on the same target could kill.
As for tactics, Paige has none. She will become terrified in a combat situation and most likely use her teleport to escape the area as quickly as possible. Being very young means that her fight/flight response is heavily gear toword flight and little save, possibly, critical danger to her brother or mother might induce her to stand and fight.
Paige is a pre-teen girl with a serious case of hero-worship. For as long as she can remember, her older brother, Josh, has been beside her to protect her, play with her, and explain the way the world works. Then he told her that he had super powers, an for the first time in her life she was jealous of her brother. She never dreamed when she said 'I wanna be a meta-human too' that it would happen in only six months.
So now it is just a matter of discovering what she can do, but one thing scares her, the idea of actually using her powers against someone else.
Sometimes even kids can develop meta-human powers. Seems that it is inherited.
Look, she's a kid, I cam TRYING to keep her under 300! O36 D40 M28 T104
