Thanks, Stulte! Glad you like them!

Whoo! Work has been killer, haven’t had the chance to write out these character’s backstories/origins/how they fit in with each other, but here’s two more closer lookes:

Luz Garcia
Bio: Eighteen years old with a bit of a rebellious streak, Luz was from an affluent part of Mexico City. She had no direction, living in constant debauchery at the expense of her parents’ finances. Her wild streak got so bad that her parents sent her to stay with her college-student brother, Guillermo, one summer on an archaeological survey. She gave in to her temptations to sneak in where she wasn’t supposed and ended up discovering a hidden chamber in the Pyramid of the Sun. Her brother followed her in, trying to stop her from getting into trouble. He picked up a reflective disc and that was when the change happened…
Abilities: Luz can project an aura of dazzling light, with complete control over it’s intensity. With her aura active, Luz can fly at subsonic speeds and is given limited protection from high-speed impacts. She can focus her aura into a tighter beam, to project devastating energy blasts.

Guillermo Garcia
Bio: Guillermo was 20 years old when it happened. Up until that point he been a very quiet, solitary individual. He didn’t feel like he fit in anywhere, couldn’t open up to anybody in his family, so he stayed in his own little world, his nose always in a book. Going off to college was a bit of a relief, although he still kept mostly to himself. On a visit back home he overheard his parents talking about shipping his sister Luz off to a reform academy. Guille stepped in. He felt responsible for her. He thought that if he had been a more attentive older brother, perhaps she wouldn’t be in so much trouble all of the time. He proposed that she go with him to his departmental survey, in the ruins of Teotihuacan. She could work for free as a research intern and stay with him for the summer. He was only trying to help. That was before the night everything changed…
Abilities: Guillermo is able to interact with and manipulate the energies of a hidden Mirror Dimension that exists within our own. He can access his abilities through any reflective surface. His reflection gains semi-sentience, able to act on its own and serves as a guardian for him. Guille is able to temporarily pull his reflection into reality to further protect him if needed. His perceptions are also heightened, and he can see the true nature of things reflected, even if they are disguised in the physical world. With training he developed the ability to bring himself and others in and out of the Mirror Dimension, essentially using it as a go between to teleport from one reflective surface to the next.

And a bit of how they obtained their abilities:

Luz snuck into the ruins after hours with some local kids, hoping to find a secluded spot to drink. Her brother was waiting for her, trying to stop her from getting in trouble. The locals left and after a heated exchange, Luz stormed off deeper into the ruins. She ended up in the Pyramid of the Sun uncovering a hidden chamber completely by accident when she pushed Guillermo into a pressure sensitive plate. The ground gave way beneath them and they slid deeper into the pyramid. He picked up a reflective disc and remembers hearing a distinct clicking sound. Hidden glyphs along the chamber wall lit up and shot energy into Guille, before channeling out to hit Luz. Their memory goes hazy after that…

They awoke to find themselves atop the pyramid. It was the middle of the night. Guillermo made sure Luz was ok and got them down off the ruin. When they approached the surrounding roadways, they were discovered by a pair of policemen. The officers though they could make a quick buck out of the siblings and started threatening them with arrest, anything really to get a bribe. One of the officers began to say that he might take a night with Luz instead of money, but was suddenly impaled on a harsh black blade. Luz and Guille looked around to find themselves surrounded by inhuman beings of shadow, covered in glyphs similar to the ones they saw in the hidden chamber. The other officer fired a few rounds, but was quickly overrun and brutally dispatched. The shadowmen crowded the siblings, Guille tried to protect Luz, but was dragged away as the rest of them pounced on her. She screamed and suddenly a corona of dazzling light flared around her in all directions, disintegrating their assailants. Guille grabbed Luz and fled to duck behind an empty warehouse, when they heard whispering. He turned in horror to find his reflection in the window looking pleadingly at them, telling them to get out of there.
