Complications:
Personality - Valerie can be nerdy, blunt and tactless.
Responsibility - Charcoal is the daughter of Doctor Radio and Amazon Grace. As such she grew up being taught the importanance of helping people and using her abilities wisely.
Heritage - Valerie is half Erylusian. She sometimes finds herself caught up in Erylusian related plots.
Costume and Physique Problem - Charcoal's breasts tend to become exposed from costume damage and the like. It is NEVER deliberate on her part.
Family Issues - Valerie was unaware of her mother's family in Canada until recently. Her baby brother, Victor, was recently born.

young Charcoal Known Background: Charcoal first appeared as a super heroine in Rockford, Illinois. On her first case, she seemed to already be known to another midwestern hero, Captain Miracle. Between this, her hair colour, and her powers led some to, correctly, surmise that this new heroine was the daughter of Amazon Grace, former Legion of Champions member. Shortly after meeting the Chicago based superteam, the Hawk, she was recruited as a part of that groups first big attempt at expansion. This expansion did not go well, and her tenure with the Hawk was brief. Several months later she met the Champions of Justice, and she eventually joined; one of the first among a wave of younger heroes. More recently, her mother has finally revealed more of their origins, and her father has returned from his exile in space. While these are good, Charcoal is less comfortable with her parents' decision to expand their family.
Powers/Tactics: Charcoal is half Erylusian, in effect, a demi-goddess. Further more, she inherited some of the radioactive spawned might of her father, Doctor Radio. As such she is extremely strong and durable, and like most Erulusians heals at an enormous rate. Further more, she's been trained to use her strength in hand-to-hand combat. She is, in short, a brickette. Her enhanced muscles let her run and swim at incredible speeds, and she can jump half a mile. Her greatest drawback as a combatant, is that she can enjoy it too much and become distracted.

Personality: As a part of the so-called "Loc Bloc" (the children of the Legion of Champions), especially being born with powers, Charcoal basically saw life as a super heroine as a forgone conclusion. What else would she do with her powers? As such, her determination is partially hidden by a bright, almost bubbly personality, who is comfortable with who she is. Conversely, it is in her life outside heroics where her nerdy, introverted side shows. A late bloomer and hiding her powers, she grew up without many friends. Somewhere along the line she became a Nipponophile in general, and an anime fan ("otaku") in particular. Amidst the costumed fraternity, she is not afraid to let her competitive side show.

Appearance: Charcoal is 5’11" and weighs more than she appears, at 165 lbs. Though in her twenties, her slowed aging process means her body, like a teenager's is still developing. Bustier than average, she benefits from having super humanly strong pectoral muscles. A natural redhead, she's growing into a becoming a beautiful young woman. Her uniform is a grey bodysuit, with leather trim, emblazoned with a keyhole opening.
Charcoal na no da!
