Background/History: Jennifer never really lived an "ordinary" life, though to hear her tell it, she was just another face in the crowd. Straight-A student, Homecoming Queen, civil and environmental activist; Jennifer was working to make the world a better place well before her eruption.

Of course, like every other Nova, her life changed forever the day she erupted. For Jennifer, the crisis was an attempt by a digi-terrorist to destroy the website she'd done for a local branch of Greenpeace. (Local to her, of course.) As a site designer trying to outthink a prepared hacker in real time, Jennifer herself says she was outclassed. She tried to imagine herself in several places at once, throwing up firewalls in an attempt to block access. Space is an illusion in the OpNet, Jennifer once told me, and that proved to be her triumph. Though she couldn't out-program the hacker, she just popped into his room, then popped him to the nearest police station, before either of them knew what happened.

Given her history of activism and devotion to the greater good, Jen was almost destined to become a member of Team Tomorrow. The young American was an immediate media sensation. Her charming persona, girl next door beauty and forthright, caring attitude immediately won the hearts of the world. Slider (named because of her ability to "slide" objects with her spatial manipulation) was a favored member of Team Tomorrow and Utopia's greatest spokeswoman.

Unfortunately, Jennifer intelligence and inquisitive nature brought about her downfall. After looking into several inconsistencies and rumors, she began to stumble across the rot at the heart of Utopia, the secretive Project Proteus. As was her nature, she spoke out, calling in friends (such as André Corbrin) and other Novas that have begun to suspect the truth. Clearly she had to be silenced. In 2008, Slider was found murdered in her Calcutta apartment, the victim of a brutal assault. No murderers was ever caught though suspects were many, from the Teragen to Corbin himself. The truth would not be revealed for many years, but a great deal of suspicion fell on Utopia itself, furthering blackening its reputation and perhaps adding more fuel to the growing fires of discontent against the organization. Its also Jennifer's warning that leads André into his unlikely position as leader of the Aberrants (Former Utopian Nova that suspect the truth).

Quote: "No, you look, André. Novas are one in a million, may six or eight thousand world wide. They're systematically killing us off and they're getting us to do it so it doesn't look like they're anything up. All for N! or for publicity or whatever screen they want to throw up against us!"

Powers/Tactics: Jennifer's power are based on spatial manipulation. She can bend space as she sees fit allowing to perform many amazing feats. She can shift her and other positions, manipulation objects by "sliding" them about, or deflect attacks. She open portals to view distant locations and transport large amounts of material instantly. This made her invaluable in disaster relief and combat scenarios alike. Jennifer's personal enhancements include a increase to her natural charisma. Her dexterity and stamina are superhuman as well and unlike many social novas her supernatural abilities work just as well over the media.

Appearance: Jennifer Landers is a fresh faced, attractive young woman. She's naturally redheaded and has a light dusting of freckles. Overall she looks younger than she really is, perhaps in her mid teens, despite being very beautiful. She dresses casually in t-shirts and jeans for the most part when off duty and wears the standard Team Tomorrow bodysuit when working with the team though the logo is on her chest rather than shoulder.
