Your Real Age: 22
Power/Ability: pheromone manipulation, superhuman endurance, superhuman agility, night vision, sometimes uses weapons
Zinnia’s parents were both mutants like her. Her father has pheromone manipulation as well, and used the ability to manipulate people to get money, fame, and women. Zinnia’s mother was one of these women, but her father’s power didn’t work on her when she was pregnant. Her mother left her father after that and raised Zinnia alone. Her mother was actually a cat burglar, who used her abilities of endurance, agility, and night vision to aid in her thefts to help support herself and her daughter. Zinnia inherited all of their powers, and to a higher extent. Zinnia wasn’t very popular growing up, but when her power emerged at age 13, she couldn’t control the release of pheromones, drawing everyone to her and becoming very popular. Her mother was frightened for her daughter, thinking she’d end up like her father, but Zinnia ignored her mother’s concerns and enjoyed her popularity, using her ability to get anything she wanted. Her mother, afraid of what her daughter could do, sent her to a government program supposedly to help her (SST7). Zinnia knows about her mother’s ‘job’ though, and feels she has no right to judge her lifestyle. Zinnia escaped the government agents at age 16, pretty much right after she was turned over to them, and has been running ever since. She hasn’t struggled though, considering her power, and eventually came across the Whispers and found it a perfect fit.
Zinnia gets annoyed easily. She is also used to getting whatever she wants, when she wants it. She loves being the center of attention, and is very emotional. She experiences jealousy, anger, happiness, and anything else to the utmost. She isn’t the nicest girl you’ll ever meet, but not the most evil either. She still has problems with letting her power control her instead of her controlling it, and if she could ever fully master it she might not be so emotional and think about how she used her power. As she sees herself, she can only be the bad guy. Her father was a playboy, and her mother was a thief. She doesn’t think she ever had a chance to be good and is too far gone now to go back.
