Raised within the Company, this electric blonde makes up in attitude and bravado what she lacks in things like people skills, day-to-day life skills, or normal experiences. An ex-Company agent, Elle's life is under her own control now. Now the question is: what will she do with it?


Born to Bob Bishop, Elle was an only child, and got the majority of the attention in her formative years. Indeed, she could even have been called spoiled by the time her powers began to manifest at age nine. It all changed, then.

Bob relied heavily on the Company, and when his very own daughter began to show the signs of an Evolved, his first and final reaction was to take her to them for help. "Help" devolved into tests. Many tests. Painful tests. Invasive tests.

Under the guise of wanting to keep her safe and help her learn control over her - at the time - very unpredictable power, Elle was isolated in the Company itself. Her only socialization was with other agents, and as the daughter of one of the founders of the Company, she wasn't treated normally by even them.

Indeed, "normal" was not a word in Elle's vocabulary. If it were to be put there, its definition would be twisted and tangled. Days, weeks, months, years of tests she had no control over, a power she could only partially control, an enviornment made for anything but a child.

Electric Manipulation

Elle's power allows her to manipulate electrical forces. This ranges anywhere from wielding sparks to perform small shocks, to sending powerful electrical blasts through the air, with enough force to knock people off their feet. The latter end of the spectrum takes a great deal of physical, mental, and most importantly emotional effort.


Elle's powers seem tied to her emotions, ranging out of control when she is feeling something particularly strongly, especially stress, anxiety, or anger. She is able to wield her power with a good deal of finesse, and has exacting control over the smaller abilities her powers afford her. Elle prefers to use her hands to conduct her power, but any part of her body will suffice.

Water is the key debilitator of her power; anything from a rain to a bucket of water will cause her power to backfire upon herself, with varyingly painful results. She is immune to the effects of her own power, with two exceptions: the first, if water is involved; the second, when her tension is running particularly high. In these situations, her own power will cause her pain.


Shockingly Enough: Usually using her hands but any part of her body suffices Elle transmits a small shock to a person or object. This shock has the power to sting a person and when used upon objects can do handy things like power electrical objects weld ignite fires and other things that a normal electrical current can do. While Elle usually has control over this ability - in fact when at her most serene she can wield it with impressive finesse - when she is upset she often generates small shocks to anything touching her.


Oh, Balls! One of her more powerful abilities this manifests in a ball of electricity that can be thrown hurled rolled or otherwise sent towards a target. This target can be human or inanimate though in her lifetime the former is more common. The intensity like with her projected bolt is varied the size and density of the ball also factors into how the person's body will react.

Projection Is Everything: The most spectacular of her abilities Elle uses her body usually her hands - it looks the most dramatic that way to send a bolt of electricity into the air at a target. The bolt varies in intensity depending on Elle's concentration and emotional state but the force is often enough to send someone staggering if nothing else.
