UNITED PLANETS' RECORD
NAME: Leotie Dawnstar
HEIGHT: 5' 8
WEIGHT: 120 lbs
The first-born of her family and seeking to be a good role-model to her brothers, Dawnstar comes across as calm, down to earth and mature yet at the same time she doesn't exactly let loose and have fun very often, putting all and any duty to her family and friends first so she can appear aloof to those who don't know her very well. She also has a little trouble with making new friends and fitting in, and cannot stand any kind of macho posturing. With a strong connection to nature, Dawnstar is driven by a passion for life, justice and a responsibility to protect the innocent and so she can leap into action without a single thought for her well-being and seems to thrive in hand to hand combat.
A tall girl compared to other young women roughly in the same age-group, Dawnstar has brown eyes and long black hair with a somewhat tanned look due to her preference of gardening outdoors rather than in the Legion's hydroponics workshop.
Dawnstar and the rest of her people are of Native American heritage and her Legionnaire costume closely reflects this. She also wears an eight-pointed star ornament that references Venus, the morning star and was a parting gift from her brothers on her forehead and her large white-feathered wings measure approximately 16 feet from wingtip to wingtip when they are spread out to their full length.
Dawnstar hails from Starhaven, a planet near the center of the galaxy founded by Native Americans who were abducted from Earth by mysterious aliens for unknown reasons during the 20th century. Her ancestors would gain wings snd the ability to survive in space without oxygen or protection from the rigors of space after being bio-engineered on by their kidnappers who would abandon them immediately afterwards.
Over the following years they felt they actually now had a more spiritually pure home and colonised the planet. Thus like all the inhabitants of Starhaven, Dawnstar is able to fly in space without the need of protection and the need for oxygen. However unlike the rest of her people she was born a mutant with the unique ability to track any lifeform light-years from her own location.
When Dawnstar reached adolescence her tracking ability kicked in and her parents built a thriving business having her guide starships through hazardous areas of space and work as a bounty hunter.
Curious about her personal roots and gaining her family's permission, Dawnstar has decided to visit Earth to find the descendants of any family members her ancestors left behind when they were kidnapped all those centuries ago, unaware this search will lead her to more than finding out about her family's bloodlines and the place her people once inhabited...
POWERS, SKILLS & WEAKNESSES
Flight: Dawnstar and the other Starhavenites possess pairs of large, white-feathered wings with a span of 16 feet from one tip to the other that grow out of their upper backs, the result of the genetic engineering of their ancestors by their alien abductors. In deep space, Dawnstar can travel at faster than light speeds.
Tracking: Dawnstar is unique among her race in that she was born with the ability to locate and track any type of object or life form, even across light years of distance and through interstellar space.
Environmental Forcefield: Dawnstar can comfortably survive in deep space without a spacesuit or oxygen due to her ability to generate a self-sustaining environmental forcefield around her person. This also allows her to survive in most hostile atmospheres.
Skills: She is skilled in unarmed combat and how to tactically fight thanks to her parents' training, Dawnstar is capable of defending herself against one or more adversaries, seeming to thrive in combat.
Weaknesses: In an Earth-normal atmosphere or in a sizable gravity well, Dawnstar's flight speed is diminished. Her forcefield is only environmental in nature and does not protect her from physical or energy attacks.
The blue and green planet sat deceptively quiet and still among the veil of stars. In the distance, something moved then jetted forward, revealing itself to be a young woman...travelling through space without the protection of a spacesuit.
Pausing as she hovered in place for a few seconds and her eyes widened. It looked so beautiful, so untouched but the tiny pinpoints of yellow lights indicated the presence of cities below.
Part of her was already longing to turn around and go home, back to her parents and brothers but at the same time something was driving her forward as if it knew her path laid beyond merely playing guide to any starships who were willing to pay.
Closing her eyes as she once again became torn on going back and heading forward, the young woman took a single deep breath and let her instincts take over as she automatically spread her wings out to their full length and plummeted in a controlled soar, something akin to a slight sense of curiosity about what had driven her on this quest driving her down towards the planet below.
Landing in the city of Metropolis a few minutes later, the young woman adjusted the brown leather bag she wore and walked briskly towards the local hall of records, taking in the sights on the way. That building was the best place to start researching her family tree after all.
