Powers

•Fluctuating psionic ability presently grants both telepathic and telekinetic powers, allowing her to read and project thoughts, manipulate perceptions, control the thoughts and actions of others, levitate matter from a distance, project psionic force as offensive blasts or defensive barriers, and fly
•Can concentrate the focused totality of her psionic energy at one time into representational weapons (typically a knife or katana, but also other forms like a longbow, crossbow, morningstar, clawed gauntlets, etc.), channeling her TP effects with the force necessary to break through mental barriers or defenses and deliver "mind-shocks" that overload the mind and nervous system of her victim, or channeling her TK into tangible energy fields strong enough to cleave between molecules
•Formerly composed of tightly bound strings of reality, making her "quantum resolute", untouchable by outside sources of telepathy or telekinesis, and immune to matter manipulation or reality-altering abilities
•Formerly bound to the Crimson Dawn, allowing her to teleport herself and others over great distances by using shadows or patch of darkness to access the Crimson Cosmos for transit, and shadow-casting her astral form to make it more resistant to psychic assault and nearly undetectable by telepaths
•Formerly operated as Captain Britain with a costume of mystical circuitry that accessed the Omniversal Energy Matrix, providing her with superhuman strength, endurance, reflexes, a personal force field, and flight
•Formerly equipped with artificial eyes from the Wildways that automatically compensated for changes in surrounding light and acted as cameras transmitting her experiences extra-dimensionally back to the Mojoverse
•Formerly demonstrated other psychic powers with more regularity, such as precognitive dreaming abilities and "psycho-blasting", a telepathic expression of psionic energy as pure physical force
