CDC #372 – Team Building – Part 12

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

Your challenge this week is to design and name an important and influential member of the villain squad. Her name is Janine, and she is 16 years old. She is the twin sister of Jason Chapman aka Uriah. Separated from her brother by the foster care system, neither has any knowledge of the other. Only Dr. Epoch is aware of the truth; a truth that will one day make one of them switch their alliance in a violent rampage. Janine carries a similar trait to Jason ie: morphing, but whereas Jason morphs into a single entity, Janine has the ability to morph into any animal at will. Your entry must show Janine in both her un-morphed, as well as one of her morphed personas.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

Enter as often as you like!

    So she can only turn into animals not new beasts like the Jason winners, i assume we do have to base her off the previous winner yes?

    Epoch had heard of a story that multiple foster kids and the foster parents were all eaten alive by an alligator. Turns out there was one survivor a single child found covered in blood. There she revealed that her foster “parents” abused all the children and chained and tortured them countless. He alone figured out what none other new, it was this child who transformed and ate her “family”. Seeking out this strong power and young impressionable child he simply had to ask if she wished to join him in freedom or go back to the system. She eagerly accepted the offer. He asked the child’s name and she said Janine Chapman. This sparked an interest in him having seen another child of the same age and last name, Jason, while searching for her. He however said nothing of it only that she can be whoever she wants now. She said “I dont know you pick”. Thus on a whim he named her Terra.

    She accepted this new name and her new “Father” easily. He offered her freedom, allowed her to have anything she wanted, and he tought her about how to activate her abilities at will. She hungered for more power, something Epoch greatly enjoyed. He created her a gauntlet with which she could alter her dna and abilites further. Now she could morph into more than a mere gator but many other pre-historic animals thought long gone.

    Taking on the mantel of Terror-Saur, Terra is always smiling as she is now “free”.

    I Tried to get her to have close physical characteristics as Jason costume wise as well except were his was black and blue she will be red and black. I went back and looked at epoch to design the gauntlet thinking it should look similar to his own armor/tech as well.

    Clarification please.

    Am I correct in assuming that Janine can morph into a monkey for example or into an eagle but she cannot morph into a monkey with eagle’s wings?

    Taken at a young age by Epoch, young Janine was brought up knowing only him. Everyone else was, as Epoch would say, expendable. Thus she was trained as an assassin. Her ability to morph into small unnoticeable insects made infiltration easy for her. She merely had to sting her prey once for the special posion Epoch made to end her targets life. Thus she was named Stinger.

    I showed her standard attire and her villain outfit along with her transformations.

    Janine Chapman, known to some as Li’l Red and others a Roux-garou, looks sweet and innocent, but in reality she is a ruthless shape-shifter, a monstrous therianthrope. She is capable of assuming any animal form, but chooses only the forms of predators and scavengers. Her first form was that of a giant red wolf, to which she owes her nicknames.

    Doctor Epoch knew he’d found incredible power in the Chapman twins, and incredible opportunity. Janine was easy to secure. As soon as she discovered her powers, she’d run away from her foster family, and had been on the run since, going by the alias “Zoa.” Epoch tracked her down, and offered Janine everything she thought she wanted: freedom, power, and a chance to get back at the world that had wronged her. And she took the bait, hook, line, and sinker. Janine had always felt like something was missing, and she really believed Doctor Epoch could offer it to her. His first “gift” to her was a belt that created a bio-suit, providing her clothing in her human form and conventionality adjusting to become a collar that fit on any animal form she assumed, no matter how big or small it might be. Janine was suspicious it was a tracker, but Doctor Epoch assured her it wasn’t by making it easy for her to remove and telling her she was free to come and go as she pleased. That was all it took to convince Janine. When not on a mission, she’d often leave the bio-suit in her room at Epoch’s lair and do whatever she wanted. Epoch always knew she’d be back in a matter of days with a new tattoo and wild hair style. He didn’t need a tracker to know where she was, the girl was just too predictable. Janine was unwittingly in the palm of his hand the whole time. Meanwhile, leaking a little information lead Ages to her brother. Ages may think he’s found a powerful ally, but Doctor Epoch knows, if he plays his cards just right, Uriah the Heap is perfectly positioned to deal a devastating blow to the heroes, and Zoa is the key. However Janine is quickly realizing revenge only leaver her more empty, and while she’s not consciously aware of it, she does feel Doctor Epoch’s grip on her. Will she realize she’s being used, or convince Jason that he is? Either way, the wicked Doctor may soon find teenagers aren’t as easy to control as her thinks…
