CDC #454 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 11

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character.

The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

This week we move onto the female known as Halo of the hero team.

Peal Name: Natalia Chong Tai

Age:24

Planet of origin: Mars – Natalia is a first generation martian, born mere minutes after her earthling parents touched down as part of long term scientific expedition.

Powers: Natalia’s grandmother gifted her a very precious item the day her parents left for Mars. As she kissed her daughter goodbye, she pressed the ancient Jamaican Moonstone pendant into her daughter’s hand and whispered gently “She will know”. The Moonstone not only powers  Natalia with flight but it also allows her to cast a halo of protection around herself or others

    My submission this week for “Halo”. Since the moonstone pendant is of Jamaican origin I imagined it something to be passed down from one worthy Jamaican to the next to protect the innocent. So “Halo” herself is Jamaican. Her suit is basically just what I imagine a superhero with her name and power set to have, white/bright colors, cape, and a halo to play off her name. She flies around the sky draped in her protective light.

    I’d welcome some feedback so that I can tweak it later. I’m not totally happy with it but I won’t have time to do more for the contest.

  3. I decided to go with a simplified outfit, white with gold.
    Halo

    After receiving the Moonstone pendant from her mother, Natalia placed it around her neck. When it touched her skin, it began to glow, and become embedded in her chest. The Moonstone gave her the ability of flight, and the power to create an impenetrable aura of protective energy.

  4. Here is my version of Halo:

    Natalia’s grandmother had dedicated her life to collecting mystical artifacts to ensure that they did not end up in the wrong hands. Her home in China was a veritable treasure trove of the arcane. Her travels took her all over the world, including Jamaica, where she obtained a peculiar moonstone pendant. After learning of her daughter’s pregnancy, she was shown in vision the hero her granddaughter would become (along with her incredible costume) and guarded the moonstone with the greatest of care.

    As prophesied, Natalia knew how to use the moonstone when she came of age. She returned to earth so she could meet The One during his appearance at the inter-galactic security symposium held in Tokyo (the same attended by the man who would become Daikyu). She quickly became a valuable member of The One’s team. Here she is in the heat of battle, blocking a fireball hurled at her by Sunspot (off-panel).

    I present to you, Halo!

    Yu-Chong Tai is a Chinese ecologist sent to Mars with a small crew to help with the colonization of the planet. He was a sentimental man with big dreams of starting a family. His passion for the colonizing Mars got in the way such dreams. With a heavy heart, Yu-Chong abandoned the idea for a family for the opportunity to build the first bio-dome on Martian surface. Without a family to say goodbye to, he volunteered for bio-dome stability and left aboard the ISS Magellan.

    Amoy Anderson is an African-American with Jamaican roots. She was the pilot of the ISS Magellan heading to Mars with materials for the first of many bio-domes. Before leaving, her mother gifted her a moonstone pendant. Before Amoy could say thank you, her mother whispered into her ear, “She will know.” Unsure of who “she” was, her mother backed away slowly with a soft chortle and reminded Amoy to keep her faith in Mami Wata, the goddess of the moon.

    During the 9 month trip to Mars, Amoy and Yu-Chong began to develop feelings for each other. It take long before the two became intimate, and Amoy conceived shortly before landing on Mars. Yu-Chong believed the conception was a miracle, and Amoy could hear the words, “She will know.” from her mother echoing in her head. Amoy gave birth while on Mars and the two named their daughter, Natalia.

    As promised, Amoy gave Natalia the moonstone pendant. In the beginning, the pendant just rested around her neck as she became a vital part of the Martian Colonization. It wasn’t until her 15th Earth years birthday when the pendant began to glow. It is believed that the moon was facing Mars on that day.

    Mars became a difficult planet to live on for the next three years, as people began to test civilization with thoughts of rulership and power. Gangs were formed and the use of force was winning over the colonies. One such gang, used makeshift spears to arm themselves and quickly overcame other bio-domes. Yu-Chong and Amoy tried to reason with the gang, but they were quickly under attack. In a quick response, Natalia threw out a powerful halo of protection around her mother, but was unable to do the same for her father. Her father was killed that day, but the show of mystical force scared back the gang members, and they fled away from the Chong Tai dome.

    Natalia took the fight to the gang, and with her awesome abilities of halo protection and flight, was able to quickly cause a surrender. Unable to stay on Mars, Amoy and Natalia went back to Earth and Natalia was quickly recruited to be a superhero. She took on the alter ego Halo and continued to grow more powerful.

    Sorry for the long story, I love to write. Here is the link:

  6. Here is my entry version of Natalia dba Halo.

    http://fav.me/ddsbxvn

    On Natalias’ 21st Birthday she was given the family heirloom artifact known as the Jamaican Moonstone. With a inborn knowing, she accessed the Jamaican Moonstone to enable her to create auric fields depending on the danger she felt around her, with practice she was able to also extend her auric field to protect those around her. With further practice she learned how to give herself wings that enable her to fly out of danger. When out of danger or off missions her wings disappear. It also has been only recently has she also been able to access her Ancestresses Spirits locked within the Moonstone to give her advice and teach her the ways of traditions and possibly further powers locked within the Moonstone.

    She chose her outfit based on her Country of Origin Flag Jamaica. Her “sparkles” that are the colors of Reggaeton known throughout the Universe as good lovin’ music.

  7. HALO

    Real Name: Natalia Chong Tai

    Age:24

    Planet of origin: Mars – Natalia is a first generation martian, born mere minutes after her earthling parents touched down as part of long term scientific expedition.

    Natalia’s grandmother gifted her a very precious item the day her parents left for Mars. As she kissed her daughter goodbye, she pressed the ancient Jamaican Moonstone pendant into her daughter’s hand and whispered gently “She will know”.

    Upon reaching puberty, the Moonstone’s powers combined with the unique Martian atmosphere altered Natalia’s body to a hardened gem-like appearance. She can go back to her original human appearance for short periods of time.

    Powers: The gem not only powers Natalia with flight but it also allows her to cast a halo of protection around herself or others.
