CDC #450 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 7

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 a unique member of the hero squad Madame Ambassador.

At an early age, her family, and much of her planet were assimilated by a malevolent species known only as Species A. Species A are part biological and part android beings who adopt the strengths of those they assimilate, and disregard their weaker aspects but unlike the Borg they do not seek perfection; they seek pure domination of the galaxy. Cara – Madame Ambassador’s birth name – spent many years in Species A’s diplomatic corps, identifying worlds and species for assimilation, and while she performed her duties with ruthless efficiency Cara never completely left her. After witnessing the brutal assimilation of a young family, she escaped from the Species A mothership, and headed…well…anywhere else. She met The One while hold up in an Earth refugee camp and he convinced her that she still had much to offer. He told her that her knowledge of species and her gift for languages, would be invaluable to his team.

Madame Ambassador is largely android in composition but still carries traces of her former life. She is an elegant being of vast intelligence and kindness who still carries one gift from her home planet: the ability to heal herself and others.

    My submission for “Cara (Madame Ambassador)”.

    Since she comes from another planet I wanted to keep her alien looking. I also wanted her android body to look like a sort of futuristic nurse. Her power is an energy that flows through her that allows her to not only scan people to determine their injuries, but also harness that energy to heal those who are injured by injecting the energy directly into them. Most of her alien body was taken and replaced with the android shell it inhabits now, but they left her with her hands to make full use of her powers to their benefit. The energy that gives her her power is also used to power the android body she now has. Her role on the team is naturally utilized as the team medic both at base and in the field of battle.

    I interpreted “Cara” a bit differently, going minimal in cybernetics, since most androids have flesh coverings. Well, most of the movies I’ve seen. lol So that is the route I went. Since “species” are undefined…I put what I see in some of my dreams. So I took from the companions. I also took interpretation freeform for her healing ability. Going more with out than inborn, I have her drawing energy from the Earth or planet to bring forth her Healing. I gave her a subtle green tint to suggest that she is not of the Earth. I also took liberties in that her species has “opening or mouths” on their palms to absorb energy. When she was taken, “Species A”, put a tube into her right hand, that she can extend at will to plug into any device, computer..etc. I also took the word “Elegant” and ran with that. 😀

    CARA – Madame Ambassador

    Struggled to come up with any significant back story beyond what was already provided. So rather than post something lame..I’ll just take what was provided.

    Here’s my version of Madame Ambassador (W/O WM)
    tried to do some highlight and shading, didn’t turn out as well as I wanted so I kind of gave up on some areas.
