UNITED PLANETS' RECORD
NAME: Candi Pyponte-Le Parc III
WEIGHT: 225 lbs
Upbeat, optimistic and all-around cheery with a heart as big as she is, Candi takes on a positive and compassionate big sister-type role towards many of the Legionnaires. She will lend a shoulder to cry on and an ear even to those who are being rude and/or disrespectful to others. Her compassion and concern for the welfare of others appears to be deeply genuine.
Candi appears to have accepted her physical alteration and in spite of her ironic codename, she does not carry herself as a 'monster' of any sort, remaining outgoing and aggressively feminine in her ways. Her socially forward and familiar demeanor can sometimes become annoying, particularly to her more reserved teammates.
A dedicated 'material girl' who loves new and pretty things, Candi also has a habit of changing her wardrobe to fit in with the latest fashions a lot.
An ususually tall and powerfully-built girl with orange skin, Candi has brown eyes and long auburn hair. Her Legionnaire outfit is a pink and yellow costume with wide strap-like sleeves. The front part has a yellow section that roughly ends above her legs and is framed by pink on both sides though the yellow section continues up and covers both shoulders. The yellow center with pink on each side is repeated on the back of the outfit. Her costume is rounded off by grey boots, a pair of chunky wrist-guards, a silver armlet on her right arm and these little grey pouches that she had attached to her Legionnaire belt.
Candi Pyponte-Le Parc III was born into elite society on the planet Xanthu, pampered and wanting for nothing, and growing with with high-society flings, dinner parties and the like. Though she loved both parents, Candi was especially close to her mother and the pair of them would enjoy little shopping trips to see what the latest fashions were, and starting an interest that would stick with Candi for the rest of her life.
However she knew nothing of how the working classes lived until one day when her father took her on a tour of his plants. She discovered that her beloved father had impoverished workers in his labor farms which numbered in the hundreds. She was shocked by this revelation, not agreeing with it and doing her best to rally for the workers. One of them (really a protestor who was disgusted at the conditions in the facility in disguise) ran up to them, threatening to detonate a bomb.
Her father swatted him aside and in doing so, the gene bomb detonated. In an attempt to save her father, Candi took the blast full-on and was turned into a hulking monster. As a result she was rejected and shunned by her father and the workers, if it hadn't been for her mother stepping in, she may have ended up living on the streets.
With her mother's prompting, she began focusing on using her new powers to help people, Candi first heard of the Legion while Brande was promoting them on Xanthu. She became so impressed with the tales of the founding members' teamwork and skills that she decided to join and taking one of her family's ships, headed for Terra.
POWERS, SKILLS & WEAKNESSES
Powers: Monstress' physique and musculature have been greatly augmented due to a gene bomb. Her new Khund-like stature gives her super-strength, endurance and a fair measure of invulnerability. She is able to lift an entire cruiser single-handed and can survive a direct missile hit without a scratch. During periods of high emotion, these already stellar attributes are greatly increased.
Tailor: Candi's love and life-long knowledge of clothes and fashions means she can make, repair or alter clothing professionally vie hand or machine sewing. As such, she is one of only three Legionnaires that the occupants of Star Pavilion trust with their garments, be they costumes, uniforms or civilian clothes.
Business Management: Before the gene-bomb incident, Candi's father was teaching her business skills for when she took over the company, it's something that she has not allowed to get rusty.
Linguistics: Due to the kind of education she recieved growing up by attending a private school, Candi was taught various alien languages and she's easily able to understand other races, making it easier for her to speak to them.
Art: Due to the kind of education she recieved growing up by attending a private school, Candi is an amateur artist of various branches; namely painting, sculpture and ceramics.
Weaknesses: Balance and gravity can still affect her and there is the risk that she may damage thing or other people without meaning to or noticing. In addition, Candi is tough but not invulnerable, she can only take so much damage before it finally takes effect and she can be injured or killed by someone with the right sort of powers. And while her powers are physical-based, they don't help that much against someone with mental or telepathic abilities.
Luckily her mother had sent a communication ahead of her so the girl's ship was safe and secure over in a private hangar at the nearest stardrome so that was one less thing to worry about for now meaning that she could focus on other things. Unless the vessel got stolen, there were rumors of a band of tech-thieves; the Scavengers circulating around the streets of New Metropolis.
Hovering by a wall near the main entrance and exit, Candi alternated between sipping at a glass of fruit juice and nibbling on a delicious cheese-filled pastry while throwing brief glances around the room, She had withdrawn to the side of the crowded foyer as she was a little concerned about the possibility of accidentally stepping on someone's foot or stepping on someone especially as she had noticed there was an Imskian girl among the crowd of teenagers.
Finishing the pastry and licking her fingers as she debated throwing caution to the wind and getting another, the large orange-skinned girl shifted a little in anticipation. Surely they wouldn't have long to wait now, the present founders had disappeared from the second level where they had been crowd-watching. And Imra's telepathic broadcast led to the question that she was sure that was running through everyone else's heads, which of the hopefuls would be called in first?
