Background

Right from the age Victoria started to walk they knew she would be some sort of problem. She hardly ever listened, was always getting into trouble and could never stop getting into a fight with another kid on the block. She claimed it was because all of the kids picked on her for trying to be so much like her brother. “Well know wonder girls shouldn’t act like guys” is all the response she would ever get from them but Victoria could hardly care what they thought.. Everything her brother did was amazing and she wanted to learn it and do it exactly as he did. She joined the basketball team just like him and then switched over to the soccer team just like him. Her grades were nothing less than a mirror image of his. Even going as far as to fail in the same things he did.

Her brother, Victor, was caring, knowledgeably and protective. All the parent Victoria felt she needed. Victoria didn’t understand the connection herself but when she was 3 and her brother was in his teens he took her out for a walk. A few drunk men tried to ruff him and his little sister up. Of course they had no idea of the power within Victor and found themselves being propelled at high speeds into a near barnyard. Victoria couldn’t recall that to mind after all these years but something inside just knew he was some sort of hero. She had the feeling but no memory to match why. It wasn’t until she got into an accident one day that she realized what exactly her brother was hiding. While returning from an awful shopping day with her mother. A car in opposite traffic slammed into the front of theirs. The mother was okay(as most drivers always are) but Victoria had been badly injured and the side of her waist was badly torn.

They rushed her off to the hospital and it was determined right away that she was going to need a blood transfusion. As luck would have it Victor was a perfect match and so he donated his blood without question. The transfusion was a success and the surgery went well. After a month or so Victoria was back to normal and felt as good as new. One day in school though while she was at gym her powers became active and instead of trying to do a slam dunk she ended up slamming through the roof. Frightened and in awe by her powers she crashed into a tree and then into the ground. Even though it didn’t hurt the shock of it all caused her to faint and next thing she knew she was at home with her parents staring at her.

After many harsh questions and accusing fingers the truth finally cam out from her brother who admitted to having the same powers. He explained that she must have gained powers through the blood transfusion and that she wasn’t a mutant. Her parents had an extreme hate for people with powers though, because both of there parents had been killed by one. Outraged and disgusted the family became torn and the parents ended up separating deciding it was best to leave Victoria with her brother. In truth Victoria couldn’t have asked for a better setup but over a few months her brother started to act strange. He became withdrawn and angry all the time. Did he blame her for blowing his secret? For ruining the family? And why would he never answer her questions about where his powers came from. Was he mutant? Victoria felt as if the old Victor she knew had died. The life in his eye's had died and he looked like a stranger to her.

One day later her brother gave her the worst news ever. He told her she had to leave. That he needed to go someplace and she would only hold him back and get in the way. Victoria protested and screamed but for once her brother just didn’t care. He wrote a letter to The Academy and sent her their. Victoria stuffed away her guilt and anger and convinced herself that this was just a test to get stronger. For her brother, to find him and confront him by force if need be.

With Victoria gone Victor could now move on with his true plans. Starting with the death of their parents. Killing them would be the first stepping stone to what he considered to be his destiny. It was not so hard a thing to do and quite frankly Victor would get a sense of pleasure from it. Victoria had no idea that when she had said goodbye to Victor that day she was saying it forever. The brother she had knew all her life, that raised her and taught her to try to be more than just his shadow, loved her and cared for her, he, was no more.

Personality and Appearance

Personality: Vick is one of those people who act tough on the outside and surprisingly are very strong on the inside. She is definitely a tomboy which is plain to see when you meet her. She doesn't easily admit her faults and feels the need to cover them over with pride when you point them out. Early on she developed a need to be like her brother so she carries many of the same traits as him. Some purposely done but most actually naturally come to her.

She is quick tempered and easy to spur to action when she feels she is being challenged. In her mind she is always out to prove that she is just as good as her brother and worthy of being his little sister which is what drives her and most of her actions. Not a healthy obsession but don't tell her that!. She doesn't respond as negatively towards cowardly or easily frighten people as you might think but instead tries to inspire them and use them to bolster her own strength. Though she does tend to walk over them sometimes.

Appearance: You can tell from first glance that Vick is a Tomboy. She's hardly ever seen without some type of baseball cap over her head.
