Stranger in a Strange Land: Cally was born and raised to a human father and an Avian Mother shes split time between both the Aviary and the world of the land walkers. This has left her a bit of an outcast in both and she sometimes has trouble fitting in, in either.
Non-Human: Cally has bright red feathered wings out of her back and her Green eyes have a distinctly avian look to them, she has to take extra efforts to pass for normal.
Winged Scottish Redhead: Do I need to explain this one? Suffice it to say Shes a firecracker of the first magnitude.
Responsiblity (The Aviary) As much as they might not like her Cally fights for the Aviary and its protection every bit as hard as her cousin Talona does.
Relationships: Her cousin Talona, her Mother Elara Caly is very protective of her family.
Claustrophobia: A basic side effect of her Avian Nature, Cally cannot stand to be confined or in a tight space for too long she grows restless and the longer shes confined more upset and dangerous.
Rivalry: CateranPower Points
Abilities: 84 + Skills: 16 + Advantages: 19 + Powers: 40 + Combat: 11 =170ppBackground:
CallyAnn Mcgowrie was born from a unique union. Her mother was a full blooded membe rof the avian race who was exploring the world of the landwalkers in an attempt to learn more about them. Partly out of curiosity and partyl out of a need for the aviaries leadership to better understand their potential enemies. Contact with the Freedom League, and the Atom Families had proved beneficial for them, but other surface worlders had proven less then honest or even hostile.
Unfortunately on a trip to Dakana to meet the White Lion she ran into a group of the latter, and she was trapped by a group of mercenaries working for a mega corp with Shadow backing who wanted to exploit the Nations Dakan crystal resources.
Caged and held as a potential hostage Elara then met the man who would save her, a scotish mercenary working with the men who was assigned to feed and watch her since he was new and not quite trusted with any more serious duties.
The mercanary Seamus McGowrie fell in love with the beautiful Avian captive and after a brief if tempestuous flirtation promised he would rescue her.
true to his word when the White Lion got wind of what had happened to the visitor form the Aviary he was expecting he was furious and made short work of the mercs. Seamus freed Elara in the fighting and escaped to safety seeking sanctuary in Dakana.
Callyanna was born a year later, and quickly grew to be a healthy young adualt woman. tradgey struck Cally when her father passed on due to an illness when she younger. This affected her and her mother deeply and the pair left to return to the Aviary.
Cally had a rough time in the Aviary due to her half Human nature still she fought to earn her place and rapidly gained the respect of her people including her cousin Talona as the two bonded. Cally was never quite the fighter Talona was not that, that made a difference given that she was still physically capapble of taking on nearly any challenger that faced her.
She was a physical powerhouse and highly agile, she was also a match for any flyer capable of amazing maneuvers and speed as well as sharpened senses, and the ability to rapidly heal any injury. She discovered another ability inadvertantly when she and Talona were able to converse with a flock of birds one day.
Cally would come full circle when she was asked to return to Dakana by the Aviaries leadership to request the help of the Atom Family in repairing the Aviaries environmental technology. traveling their she met Tesla Atom and the pair struck up a friendship and became Pen pals. She also became involved when the Power Corp attempted to sabotage a Dakana lead space mission to the Farsiders.
Taking up a mace from a fallen Warrior Cally accounted herself well and earned the Thanks of the new King M'Balla.
M'Balla would later gift her a weapon, specifically a Mace made from a combination of Orichalcum and powered by Dakana crystals. Cally took to the new weapon like a duck to water.
Since then shes returned to the Aviary but makes occasional forays into Freedom City to continue her educaiton. where shes made a small name for herself as a firey heroine with an attitude whose outspoken defence of the Aviary has brought her into conflict on occasion with any number of people.
Unlike her cousin Talona, Reds temper is more a product of her scottish heritage then any atavistic nature. Still from time to time the predaory raptor does show through as she tends to take the most direct and straight forward actions. She can be stubborn, and willful, and even a bit prideful but she always keeps in mind that innocents need to be protected. Shes fiercely loyal and when she does make a friend its a total commitment even though she doesnt give her friendship or trust easilly.
Powers and Tactics:
Like most of her mothers species Cally is fully adapted to flight. She has a hollow bone structure and highly efficent musculature and cardiovascular systems. Shes literaly designed for flight either highly aerobatic or efficent flying .
Red has several avian adaptations for flight including enhanced razor keen sight, superhuman reflexes and agility, phsyical resistance to the effects of extreme alitudes and low oxygen atmospheres, and an increidble sense of balance that includes an ability to judge dustance and location. She also possesses an amazing regenerative capability.
Physically shes enormously strong and durable for her race, stronger even then Talona is. She still retains the ability to "unsheath" her talons though hers arent as sharp as Talonas are they're still razor sharp and capable of vicious wounds.
Initially more a brawler with strong instincts thanks to her predatory nature, Red refined her fighting style with the help of the Golden Lionesses. The Lionesses are the personal body guards to the King of Dakana and they helped train her into a lethal warrior especialy with her chosen weapon.
Cally adopted the mace as a personal favorite weapon, and M'Balla gifted her with a specially made Orichalcum one powered by Dakana crystals. The Mace beyond being a crushing weapon capable of brutal hits, can also channel electrical energy through its head allowing her to shock any opponent she hits. The maces orichalcum combined with its energy discharge capacity means it can deflect nearly any attack thrown at her.
One of the maces most intriguing abilities was discovered when she faced off against some of Shadows mystical henchmen. They sent demonic entities after her but everytime they got close to her they would just disappear. When they tried to put up a barrier to imprison her she waltzed right through it. The maces orichalcum core in combination with the Dakana crystals perhaps created a sort of anti chaos warping field that shut down magic when it came into contact with it.
A tall statuesque red head with a blend of scottish and exotic avian features Caly lives up to her nom-de-gure. She has a set of powerful crimson feathered wings which are exotic even for the Aviary and have earned her the nick name --loosely translated from the Avian--of Blood Hawk. Her fierce emerald eyes have a wild untamed spirit in them and take on a raptor like appearance when she uses her talons.
Red tend to wear a redish pair of pants with black tiger stripes, fingerless black gloves with studs on the knuckles, and tall black boots. A red mask covers her face more for effect then actual identity protection.
Her mace is a dark Iron grey color with a red wrapped handle.
Submission for TMs Freedom League and general attempt to make a 3rd ed brawler.
