Background/History: Allison erupted at 17 after a car bomb exploded outside her apartment in Belfast, killing her family and leaving the girl a ward of the Crown. Seeing the potential in the young nova, the British government turned her into a living weapon. Suffering from post traumatic stress, the girl quickly withdrew and soon took pleasure in only one thing, causing pain.

"Shrapnel" as she came to be known earned a deadly reputation in the Equatorial Wars (conflicts in Africa and South America fought mainly be Nova Mercs (Elites) as proxies for baseline soldiers). Secretly, she took great pleasure in tormenting the pathetic humans she was supposed to be protecting. After a few years, she went rogue and while dodging the manhunt sent for her, met Natalya "Swarm Queen" Pronova, another disillusion Elite. In 2003, Count Raul Orzaiz offered them both membership in the nascent Teragen organization.

Inside, Shrapnel longed to end the violence and return to her baseline innocence. But all around the world, her "people" were used and abused so humans could reap the rewards. Novas were used to fight so the monkeys could live? What made their lives more important? In 2005, when Mal issued his famous Null Manifesto, Natalya, Shrapnel and a cadre of other Novas went public and formed The Primacy (The Faction of the Teragen that urges the conquest/destruction of Baselines). The time of the One Race had come!

Powers/Tactics: Shrapnel's powers are fairly straight forward. She can assume an inorganic form and fire concussive blasts of white hot metal and energy at well. Her metal form is extremely durable and can fly on jets of molten debris. Shrapnel has superhuman strength, but rather mild compared to most nova and prefers to keep her fights at range, despite her Martial Arts training and natural agility.

Appearance: Shrapnel "The Angel of Teras", emerged from her first Chrysalis as a being of metal and energy rather an flesh and blood. She appears to be statue of molten metal and shards, eerily beautiful and terrifying at once. Her razor edged white hot "flesh" can slice through steel like butter and when she rages, even strong men grew faint. Shrapnel can "pull herself together" and resume more human form but prefers not to, liking to stay in her "natural" form. In human form she is no less attractive, with long flowing red hair, bright green eyes and a hint of freckles. But her face is cold and her eyes hold only a burning malice for the world.
