Description
With the right side of her head shaved close, her hair is pulled over to the left, flowing across the top and right side of her head all the way down to mid-back. This strange haircut is but one point in the strangeness of this woman. Her skin is a light gray in color, with eyes that are solid red across the entirety of them with the slightest hint of a glow about them. Her lips are as black as onyx, matching her dark hair with high cheek bones giving her a powerful cut to her face that borders on the side of handsome rather than simple beauty.

Her body is athletic, her height combined with her frame making her seem like an olympic athlete and truer words may have never been spoken, given her heritage. Her arms lined with whips of muscle drawn tight through practice instead of lifting. Her legs similarly adorned. Her body is hidden under armor that would be found more at home in ancient Greece than in modern times. The blackened armor seeming to have the supple movement of leather but with a shine that denotes metal. The armor leaves just the area about her collar bone bare with it cutting like a bikini in the front but dipping over her hips and wrapped in leather leaving inner thigh bare.

Bracers cover her forearms with fingerless gloves covering her hands. The leather strapped bracers go up her right arm but leave left upper arm bare. From knee to toe, she has on a pair of boots that seem similar to the armor over her form, supple movement similar to leather and yet having a shine similar to steel. The boots are gold in color though the gold almost appears tarnished in color, not quite having the shine.

History

History
Years ago, many many years ago, the Amazons were exiled for failing at their sacred duty and were exiled to Themyscira. For many this was far more terrible than others. Myrina Black was one among the Amazons that hated this more than most. She was a trained assassin. A brutal warrior who took lives as easily as some might take a bite of food. She had a purpose. She was a knife to be wielded. Point her at an enemy and they'd fall. Sure, they were created to teach the merits of virtue, love, and equality, but those that love a plant must trim the dead branches. Those that practice animal husbandry must cull the sick from the herd. She was the tool that pruned the ill.

Then they were gone from the world. She watched over centuries as her beloved Amazons became a quiet people, training for what she saw as no reason. Keeping up their skills in war to guard a doorway that would, as far as she was concerned, would only open for those that put them there. What was the point?

During this time, the woman who would become Wonder Woman would be born by a coupling between Zeus and Hippolyta. A girl who would have skills far above that of an Amazon and would eventually be blessed further. Then man's war would come to their shores. Then Diana would rush off to get involved. Myrina Black felt a spark she thought long dead in her renewed.

The more she heard about this world, the more she began to see the problems of this world. Of this new Earth. She started to realize that the problems of this world were not its own. Gods (both the kind that called themselves heroes and those that truly called themselves gods) were the problem of Earth. Of the whole of the universe. They were, then in the year 2000, Myrina Black would vanish from Themyscira. When she'd return, nearly 3 years later, she'd be pregnant with a child. Beaten, bruised, and bleeding, she'd return quietly, secretly, seeking only those Amazons that she trusted most.

Soon after, a girl would be born with grey skin and red eyes to the surprise of the Amazons. Myrina would flee the island again, killing one of the women who helped her who stated she had to tell Hippolyta, and leaving once more. Regardless of her actions, eventually they'd find out about her child. Still, she couldn't let them stop her. Myrina had a plan to create her own Wonder Woman. Created by a coupling between one of these New Gods, Darkseid and herself. Grail was the result. This new world, no, this Universe needed a defender from all those that would play games with mortals.

That defender would be Grail.

Grail was raised in the old ways of the Amazons, but her mother kept nothing from her. Letting her watch and know the history of Earth and more so of the Universe as a whole from what she could learn. She always put the same spin on it, though. Teaching her daughter how people like her own father darkly forced the universe to bow to their whims. These gods, these superheroes, were villains and were all a problem by the standards of these teachings.

As Grail would grow, she'd move from place to place with her mother to see not only the actions of those that would claim themselves in charge, but to learn to take them down as well. As time would pass, she'd start to realize that while many needed to be stopped, people like her father, didn't need to just be stopped. They might need to die. She focused on this. She became obssessed with destroying her own father. She'd start with him. She'd take down all those that got in her way to this goal and she'd break him. He'd fall and then she'd use that to put everyone else on notice.

As Grail learned both by watching, by training, and by action, she'd always be kept cloaked. Kept quiet, never fully revealing herself or her heritage. That is, until one day she and her mother were far from Earth and heard a murmuring that rumbled across the cosmos. Darkseid...was gone. She wasn't ready by Myrina's standards to face Darkseid. She didn't know for sure if the universe was ready for her daughter. She tried to control the darker influences of her father within her but they weren't always turned aside by her teaching. Yet, what could she do to stop the girl. The girl who took the bracer her mother stole from Apokolips to travel the galaxy and she raced off. Seeking to find out just what happened to her father and if he was truly gone...

Personality

Personality
Grail is a twisted sort that doesn't see herself as evil. She was going to bring war to end war. She saw herself as the answer to those that would use their power to control others. The gods or superheroes, it didn't matter. They were using their strength to control things which only caused more problems. She genuinely believes that in many ways, they create as many problems as they help.

Her father is a sore spot for her, she can see him when she looks in a mirror at times. She can feel a lust for power, a cruelty and lust for violence that comes from him. She really does enjoy causing pain in others just as much as she enjoys winning. She hates it to a degree but at the same time, she uses it. Is it wrong to cause pain in those that deserve it? Is it wrong to hurt those that would control others in their quest for good? So, wields the parts of her that are her father like a weapon.

As for her father himself? She hates him. In her mind, he's the key to it all. The ultimate darkness and controller in the universe who thinks himself above all. She wants him. Wants to ruin him. Wants to destroy him and she wishes to crush him completely.

Abilities

Click to expand.

Healing
If something or someone is capable of causing her harm, Grail is capable of healing far faster than a normal being. Scrapes, bruises, and the like are likely not going to last on her form for more than a few seconds. Greater injuries are similiarly removed at high speed from Grail, even the worst of injuries are likely removed within a day or two.

Omega Beams
While she hasn't gotten the full Omega Effect of her father, she has shown at least one sign of it in her form. She is capable of creating Omega Beams, similar to her father, that are capable of putting out destructive force that can damage even god forged steal. The beams have not shown the same level of capability as her father's, though. She doesn't seem to have as much control over them as her father. Capable of directing them, they don't seem to have the same lock on function that her father's beams have and their range is only within one mile, assuming she has vision on the target. Further, the beams don't seem to simply disintegrate a target as much as they are just powerful in their own right. What they lack in disintegration ability, they fully make up for in pure destructive force.

Senses
While her senses are at peak levels for an Amazon, she actually has senses that aren't normal for any human or Amazon. Much like her father, she can sense New Genesis/Apokolips tech. Father boxes and mother boxes and the like are as plain to her as hearing a fly buzz by your ear or see a flash of lightning. If they are within a few hundred yards of her, she can begin to sense them and the closer they are, the easier it is for her to know where they are.

(Her Ability to sense father boxes and mother boxes is TP/Plot only)

Speed & Agility
Her reflexes and speed are greater than any human athlete could ever hope to achieve. Her speed has been shown to exceed that of her mother's and can likely move upwards of 15,000 kph, an Amazon's speed enhanced by one of the most powerful New God's genetics. She is also capable of agility and reaction time to match her speed.

Unique Physique
Due to her heritage, she's far tougher and stronger than most living beings. Her strength is likened to the gods, gaining a great deal of power from both her Amazon heritage and her father. Due to this she's also got just as much durability. She's easiliy on par with even the most powerful of amazons and could easily match a Kryptonian under the yellow sun for strength and toughness. Her strength is likely incalculable, capable of shattering the constructs of Green Lanterns, take on multiple opponents and give pause to the most powerful of enemies. Beyond this, she is by no means bothered by extreme heat or extreme cold. The ravages of space are nothing to her. She's also shown she can survive in space without a great deal of trouble.

Beyond this, she is also completely immune to the ravages of aging. She is an immortal being due to her heritage. Also, due to this and her incredible stamina, she's also capable of acting for days, potentially weeks without showing any signs of tiring. Normal poisons and diseases have no effect on her whatsoever, and even non-normal diseases and poisons would have to contend with a far more powerful body.

Will Corruption
This ability has a range of one kilometer. It allows her to corrupt the power of Green Lanterns, causing them a great deal of pain. For as long as they use their ring and as long as she remains in contact with the energy coming from the ring, she can enter into a contest of wills with the ring bearer and if she wins, cause them tremendous pain until they cease the use of the ring for that particular construct.

She can only focus on one ring at a time due to the strain of such a contest. The farther she is from the target, the less potent her power is upon the wielder.

Willful

She is the daughter of Darkseid. Essentially, she is not someone who is easily broken mentally nor is she easiliy controlled. She knows what she wants and where she is going. She knows who she is, what she is. Her sense of self is incredibly strong. As such, someone seeking to use mental powers to read her thoughts, control her, or harm her mentally would find someone who is incredibly tough to contend with. She is by no means the most powerful mentally in the universe, but she is no push over.

Skills

Click to expand.

Combat
She was trained in combat by an Amazonian Assassin. She was trained in the old waves of the Amazons and brought into several battles to practice her art and skill. She would be considered formidable by most without her powers and would be on par with any Amazon trained to fight.

Strategy

A skill she learned from her mother specifically, she knows how to read a situation. She treats most everything like combat, even when combat isn't involved. Read your opponent, look for signs of their wants and needs, capitalize on weakness, and use everything to your advantage. She is by no means the greatest strategist but she has been taught in such a way that if she were needed to lead a squad into battle or simply plan an approach with a group they wished to speak with, she could.

Resources

Click to expand.

Boom Bracer
An item created on Apokolips, this prototype bracer was created in order to create just boom tubes alone. It wasn't as powerful as a Mother Box or Father Box. It would only allow the wearer to create boom tubes across their own galaxy, only large enough for normal sized humanoids to go through, and only open long enough to allow for a group of perhaps five to seven to pass through. It was meant to be an easier to make and easier to use item for lesser ranked beings to use to move about the galaxy. However, Myrina stole this long ago in order to escape Apokolips and move around. Now, it is on the wrist of Grail, giving her the power to create portals with which she can move across the galaxy.

Myrina Black
Her mother, plain and simple. She is a trained assassin and an Amazonian Warrior. She has a talent for battle, was alive before the Amazons were exiled to Themyscira, and has built up a few resources across the cosmos. She isn't always around but if Grail needed something, she could call upon her.

Scythe

A scythe created by the greek gods, stolen by Myrina Black and gifted to Grail. It is made from metals that render it incredibly tough and nearly indestructible, capable of cutting into beings even as tough as Grail herself. The blade is forged to be so sharp that it could potentially cut a human hair in two along its length.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Anger
Thanks to her heritage and young age, Grail has a rage in her like few others. If carefully layed plans were to fail, if she were put in a situation that required it, or if someone were to simply piss her off, she would likely act through anger more quickly than through thought. She's an excellent strategist but even so, when her anger gets the better of her she becomes blinded by it and often acts against her best interests to sate her rage.

Apokolips
She has, by her very goal, made an enemy of Apokolips. Regardless of how things go, as long as she stays on her path of hating Darkseid, she will always have the powers, forces, and resources of Apokolips arrayed against her.

Arrogance
She is the daughter of an Amazon and Darkseid and she knows it. She believes herself to be more powerful than most any opponent she faces, and for good reason as she often is. However, her arrogance stays with her even when faced with equal or more powerful threats. As such, she's very likely to get in over her head if she were to ever face someone who could give her a challenge as she often jumps right into battle, thinking that her victory is always a forgone conclusion.

Darkseid
Darkseid is her father. She hates him with all of her being and wishes nothing more than to see him dead. He, however, is jealous and conceited. While she seeks to destroy him, he likely seeks to own her. She is his child, after all. For him, it's likely a point of pride and order to bring her to heel. Killing her would be a failure on his part to control his child and it is likely he would rather see her kneel at his feet. Become his ultimate weapon to use as he sees fit. For her, this would be a fate far worse than death.
Myrina Black
Her mother, she is willing to sacrafice quite a bit for the purposes of her war with Darkseid and all those in the universe that think themselves strong. However, she cares deeply for the woman who raised her. Taking or harming Myrina could send Grail into a rage like no other or bring her to heel. It's unclear, it would depend on the circumstances. All the same, her mother is weaker than she is and could potentially be used against Grail.

Target

She is the Daughter of Darkseid, in a lot of ways, that comes with its own problems. Her looks don't help her situations either. Grey Skin, red eyes, and frankly the use of Omega Beams paint her heritage. Any who found out who she was, that she existed? If they had a beef with Darkseid, they might want to go ahead and take it out on her. She is, after all, his daughter. Many who can't take on Darkseid or Apokolips directly might think that she be an easier target and attack her.
