VICTORIA ADELAIDE DEVEAU
Victoria Adelaide Deveau
X-Men (Team Leader), Staff
Victoria has a double pair of wings attached at her shoulders that extend her full arm length outward. They are see-through and iridescent, much like an insects, and she is able to fold them flat against her body so they can be hidden under a layer of clothing. Her wings are strong enough to just lift herself into the air, but that is it. She can also only fly for short periods of time before she becomes tired and must land. The longest she has been able to keep herself in the air has been twenty minutes, and after that she was grounded for half an hour.
The tips of her fingers also have a sort of bioluminescence, much like that of a firefly. The light can only be sustained for short periods; if all ten fingertips are alight at once, it is enough to easily see by in complete darkness. The light can last from one minute to ten, depending upon the brightness, however, if kept blinking, can last much longer. High energy foods can also extend the life of the light.
Weaknesses: Because her wings are sensitive, moderate to high winds make it impossible for Victoria to fly. Also, her light is not visible in daylight or strong indoor lights. Victoria cannot carry much more than herself and what is on her body when she flies, and if she uses her lights at the same time, both energies are more quickly drained.
Age/Date of Birth: 21, October 31st
General appearance: Standing only 5'2", she looks the part of a pixie. She is very thin. If people did not see her eat, they would call Victoria anorexic. She could easily pass as a child, though, with her height and build. Her eyes are a light hazel, almond shaped and fringed with dark lashes. She keeps her black hair long and brushes it straight every morning. Victoria likes to wear it down, though she will pin it up when there is a need to do so. Although she is considered pretty, Victoria does not wear makeup or attempt to accentuate what is already naturally there.
Additional Appearance: A small, horizontal scar above her left eyebrow. She is (again) painfully thin and very pale. Often wears backless tops and always wears lightweight pants. Over that she tends to wear long sweaters, jackets, or coats.
Personality: The one word most people use to describe Victoria is cautious. She is cautious about clothes, her food, and mostly her powers. Victoria has a definite can't do attitude. She lacks any sort of confidence in herself or in others. To top it all off, since her family abandoned her when they found out what she was, she has little faith in people, and she knows that she must learn to trust or be left on her own. What she lacks in confidence, however, she makes up for in every other aspect. Victoria is mostly kind to people she has gotten to know, and she is easy to get along with. Her belief is that she does not have to trust someone completely in order to be nice. This has led many to the belief that Victoria is easy to take advantage of. Which is, for the most part, very true. Victoria's passion lays mainly in the arts. She is very eclectic when it comes to fine and performing arts. Because of her lack of confidence in herself, she was never able to follow her passion for singing, so she settled with writing instead. Victoria wanted to be an English teacher at a high school, and still does. Though she is a poor fighter and very bad at math or science, she is an excellent tactician because of her love of the written word and unique imagination.
Special Skills: Is a decent singer. Has an overactive imagination.
Place of birth: New Orleans, Louisiana
Weapon(s) of choice: None
Medical information: Slight malnutrition due to her body mass.
Brief History: Born to a family in New Orleans on Halloween, Victoria was an average baby, if a little underweight. She grew up mainly unaffected by the world around her. Her parents, both teachers, moved out of the city when their daughter turned five, not wanting her to grow up in a place where mutants might inhabit. This, of course, led to Victoria not having a clue as to the real world around her. Both her parents kept her sheltered from the existence of mutants, and refused to acknowledge anything mutant related.
Other than that, Victoria grew up a pretty normal existence. She attended school, grew up, and generally had a good childhood. Up until the age of seventeen, nothing extraordinary happened to Victoria. A month before graduation from high school, strange things started to happen. Her back ached horribly, and every once and a while, Victoria would swear she saw something glowing out of the corner of her eye, near her hands.
Her power emerged not long after that. Not yet eighteen, she was on the stage at graduation, receiving her diploma, when her wings erupted from her back. They were hidden under her graduation gown, but she knew that something horrible had happened. There was no more back pain, and no one could see her fingertips lighting up, but she knew something was different. It would not be until she returned home and took off her gown that she saw what the problem was.
Her parents at first did not know what to do. Because they still had a son several years younger who they did not want exposed to her abilities, they gave her an hour to pack and threw her out, disowning her because of her mutation. Victoria, heartbroken, took what she could and hitched her way to the city she was enrolled in college at, Point Lookout, Montana. She worked through that summer, ignoring her powers, and ignoring the mutant world at large. She refused to acknowledge her own abilities and instead focused on hiding them. Since her parents had cut her off, and her college offered work study, she found herself working through school.
Victoria found herself enrolled in Xavier's institute during the summers in between her college semesters. There, Xavier taught her some of the finer aspects of power control and tested her abilities to their fullest. She met others with powers, and found herself a home. She only went back for the first two summers, however, opting to stay in college to complete her degree early.
