Hapax Legomenon

Hapax Legomenon
Level 45 Magic Defender: Dark Miasma / Dark Blast / Flight / Fitness / Leadership / Concealment (Pinnacle)

Hapax Legomenon is a member of the mystic order known as The Word. Their dark energies are said to draw on the echoes of the word of creation. Her family, or at least those that she refers to as her family, were slain by the enemies of the order. She is now the sole existing member of the Word. As a result, she has sworn to use her mystic powers to seek justice in the streets of Paragon City. She has already made enemies amongst the underworld of the city, who rightly see her as a threat to their untoward way of life.

She may sometimes seem like a brash youth, unfit for team missions, instead patrolling the city solo, dealing out dark justice with a bitter zeal. But really, she's a lost and lonely little girl in this strange new city... dealing out dark justice with a bitter zeal.
