Origin:

Like her fellow, insane wanderers, Mrs. Kaminski is a paranormal, an otherwise ordinary human who acquired her powers in the wake of the White Event, that bizarre and unexplained (to most folks) astronomical occurrence that struck the earth back in 1986.

Known Powers:

Emotion Control / Fear: Mrs. Kaminski has the unique ability to broadcast feelings of overwhelming dread and fear to everybody within Near distance of her person. This Remarkable (30) ranked power allows her to live life without bothering to, you know, get a job.

Limitations / Enhancements:

(none)

Equipment:

(none)

Quirks:

Gullibility: aside from her other, undisclosed mental problems, Mrs. Kaminski has demonstrated the inability to see through the deceptions of others, especially that Dean fellow. In order to not take what such folks say at face value, she must pass a Psyche FEAT roll at -2 CS.

Talents:

(none)

Contacts:

Very little is known about the people that Mrs. Kaminski has associated with over the years. However, it has been shown that both Dean and Mr. Lovejoy seem to be relying on her to keep them fed and otherwise alive, so it is likely that they will help her should she, in turn, need it.

Costume:

Neither hero nor villain, Mrs. Kaminski doesn't wear a super-tight Spandex ™ suit into conflict. Instead, she only wears normal clothing while doing her day to day things, which in her one appearance included a long sleeved, pink shirt, brown trousers, and gray shoes.

Personality:

Mrs. Kaminski seems to be the brains of the outfit, the one sensible person out of her gaggle of nutcases. She tries to be reasonable in most situations, but knows when violence is necessary. Also, she seems to have adopted fellow inmate Dean as a sort of wayward son.

Real Name: Mrs. Kaminski (first name unknown)
Occupation: drifter
Legal Status: American citizen with a likely criminal record
Marital Status: unrevealed
Alias(es), if any: none
Group Affiliation: none

Height: 5' 7"
Hair: black
Eyes: brown
Weight: 101 lbs.
Other Distinguishing Characteristics: Mrs. Kaminski appears to be tired most of the time, perhaps from not sleeping well - or maybe because she's on the run. She may be older, though - not necessarily exhausted in nature.

Story:

Not much is known about Mrs. Kaminski's origins, other than the fact that she has some unidentified mental problem. She was institutionalized in a mental hospital for some time, a period in which she developed startling mental abilities, namely the power to make others quake with overwhelming fear and dread. These powers are, of course, a result of the incredible White Event.

In any event, she used her parability to escape her mental hospital alongside another empath, who she knows as Dean, because it was apparently a good idea at the time. After they broke out, the duo of mentally unbalanced paranormals made their way around the surrounding area, foraging for food and shelter, usually illegally so, at which point they encountered Mr. Lovejoy.

Though this man was sane before he encountered Mrs. Kaminski and her erstwhile traveling partner, he was forever changed after extensive exposure to Dean's rage powers, and transformed into an animalistic beast bent on destruction. Of course, this extended state of agitation drew forth Lovejoy's own paranormal powers, and as such, Kaminski decided to keep him around.

This was because, in sharp contrast to her and Dean's powers, his were primarily physical in nature. Mr. Lovejoy indeed came in handy after Ken Connell discovered their presence near his apartment, and tried to take all three of 'em to get professional help. Lovejoy's physical power enhanced by Dean's rage, alongside her own powers focused against Ken, managed to take him down.

Instead of beating him into a pulp while he was down, Mrs. Kaminski simply collected her two crazy pals and, after piling them into her car, took off for parts unknown. As they haven't been seen since, it is likely that these nutcases haven't encountered any other super heroes, so they are probably wandering the deserted byways of the United States to this very day.
