CONTROLLER OF PHAROS NORTH AMERICA
Ms. Park is from the Chinese Division of Pharos, her particular branch disguised by an agricultural corporation of which she was the Controller. She had exceptionally performed her duties for almost twenty years years before the Resonance occurred, devastating her part of the world. Beijing had been hit hard by the effects of the Nevus and the city was fast overrun by demonic creatures and other mythic monsters forcing her, like so many others to evacuate. There was absolutely nothing that Pharos could do that day, everyone had been completely overwhelmed. She was lucky to escape with her life but her husband was not so lucky. Fortunately her children who were in their teens made it out unscathed.
When a position opened up in New York for a controller she jumped at the opportunity and was accepted. She arrived in North America a few months later and has been there ever since.
Deirdre is a beautiful woman who barely looks older than half her age. She has a flawless complexion and a petite toned frame. Her long hair is the customary Asian blue black and she keeps it up in a traditional braided hair-style. In fact her whole style is very traditional. She wears older Chinese styled clothes and her entire persona reflects a more ancient time.
Kind, quiet, serious. These three words best describe her. She has a very 'old world' attitude and doesn't take any non-sense from the in-experienced, she has no patience for it. Everything she does in precise and well thought out, like her her martial art maneuvers.
SPEED — Ms. Park is fast, very fast. Able to move and react fast enough to deflect one, possibly two bullets with a sword. But such explosive speed cannot be maintained for very long. She can move in bursts for a few seconds each, taking at least twenty seconds in-between to rejuvenate her energy. This means that she cannot move in a constant state of hyper-motion. She can maintain these bursts for approximately fifteen minutes before she completely tires and requires at least an hour's rest. This means that she rarely uses this ability for more than five minutes to avoid the fatigue. Even still, she is quite tired after. She needs at least half an hour of time between using this power multiple times.
KI-STRIKE/SHIELD — She can summon her Ki, her internal energy, and turn into a force that can protect or attack. As defense it is like a body-sized shield. She must remain stationary and can maintain the force for up to ten minutes if needed. It will stop bullets and even retard an explosion so that she only takes very minimal concussive damage. Heat,fire, electrical energy are absorbed by it. She can utilize this technique every twenty minutes for a maximum of four times a day. The strike has a range of 25 feet. Optimal strike distance is point of physical contact to 12 feet. She generates a powerful unseen force that when hurled at an opponent from the motion of a punch or kick is equal to the force of an impacting car moving at 40 MPH. It is a devastating attack, one that she could only perform once every three hours and only twice a day. SWORD HAND/ARM/FOOT/LEG is combining her 'shield force' with a swift hand or foot strike. It has the power and edge likened to a sword. She can only perform this once day which counts as one of her strike attacks (sword-hand/arm could obviously parry an actual sword or even block a bullet.)
Aside from all that qualifies for her current position, Deirdre is an amazing master of Wushu and deadly with a straight sword. She has mastered a variety of other weapons but nothing compares to her passion for the sword.
