Notes

I originally created Priscilla Potts in Champions Online as a secretary werewolf. She had been through quite a few adventures and has participated in battles to save the universe from peril. Despite this, she is otherwise an ordinary civilian who likes chick flicks. She also enjoys apple martinis.

The Live Server incarnation of Priscilla was far different. Though she still enjoyed apple martinis, her personality deviates from the traditional feminine woman of the new millennium. Instead, she was a quirky super hero sidekick with a love for her pipe wrench. She was originally intended to be an ordinary civilian, but due to character development and role play situations, she was soon developed into the person she is now. She was very obsessed with comic books, super heroes, and her pipe wrench.

This new iteration of the character started off as a hard retcon. This version of Potts was re-imagined as a ruthless low ranking minion who could actually pose a threat to heroes. Instead of the old quirky comic book fangirl, a deadly and efficient combatant took form. She formed into the Surprisingly Elite Cannon Fodder trope. Because I treated the Everlasting Server as an entirely different universe, I decided to change my characters in various ways. But overtime, I realized it would be a better idea to play with the idea of the Everlasting server being an alternate timeline instead of an entirely different universe. Which led to me playing with the angle of Potts on that server being the what if scenario.

Bullet Points

IC

  • Priscilla has undergone extensive training and mental conditioning, very skilled in both long range and close quarters combat.
  • She is fluent in English, Korean, Russian, and Arabic.
  • She has broken the controlling aspects of that mental conditioning, but remains adept at resisting psychic intrusion.
  • She has a severe caffeine addiction and is well informed on the subject of coffee. Her favorite blend is MoonPenny Dark Roast.
  • She often falls asleep in places where threats aren't immediate. Examples include Pocket D and Oasis
  • She has never owned a pet.
  • She holds no real prejudice against anyone. Even if she's killing that person, it's nothing personal.
  • Her psychological profile states that she has Antisocial Personality Disorder. Traits that appear to be lack of empathy are actually a coping mechanism for PTSD
  • Her entire life path is an unintended consequence temporal interference. Someone changed something in the past, which altered history. Due to the changes in the timeline, things happened in different ways.
  • She tends to show very little fear and assigns little emotional attachment to most things. However, she openly hates working for Arachnos.
  • Her brother, Chris, is currently training to join Arachnos
  • Her father, Leon Potts, works for the Cage Consortium
  • Her mother suffers from an illness that is destroying the nervous system and neural pathways. Priscilla's biggest motivation for working for Arachnos is to ensure her mother's treatment. Despite her mother's treatments being her main motivation for working under Arachnos, any clearance to this information is restricted to Arbiters Diaz and Rain, Ghost Widow, Scirocco, or the small medical team who treat Marie Potts. Not even her immediate family know the details.
  • Despite Operative Potts being very different from her original timeline counterpart in most ways, she does have a few personality traits left over despite the temporal changes. Both versions own video game and comic book collections. Both enjoy appletinis. And both secretly have some level of proficiency with musical instruments.
  • Though Praetorian Priscilla's memories are intact and mostly unaffected, the new timeline treats the Praetorian counterpart with hostility because her actions within Primal Earth have been completely forgotten and erased. Doesn't help that her Primal counterpart has been warped from an adorkable sidekick to a brutally efficient minion for Lord Recluse.
  • Operative Potts has been known by some as a brutal soldier with no capacity for mercy, while others seem to spot the odd times she spares a hero's life.

OOC

  • Operative Potts is occasionally subject to visions of Priscilla Pipewrench's heroic deeds. This is essentially because those memories she sees a glimpse of were once her own. Though she immediately forgets the visions, her personality deviates in a more heroic way temporarily. This has resulted in her sometimes sparing the lives of heroes she would normally kill with little regard. I.e. Her core personality remains, but she feels strongly compelled to act in ways that she would in the old timeline.
  • Operative Potts tends to modify her gear because of a past traumatic incident with a villain using pyrokinesis. The tip of her bayonet is hollowed out and contains a cryogenic fluid that often freezes when it exits the bayonet. She has used this to inject the liquid into some of her victims, causing them to freeze solid once it enters their wounds.
  • Her favorite song is Red Fraction by Mell

Origins

Early life

Priscilla Potts was born and raised in the Rogue Isles to Leon Potts, a Cage Consortium guard with dreams of becoming an author, and Marie Potts, a housewife. During her early life, she would often watch Arachnos troops patrol Port Oakes. Some of them would overwhelm a villain, but most would end up being defeated or even killed. The memories of slain Arachnos Soldiers and Widows would cause her to lose sleep at first, but she became desensitized to their brutal slaughter over time.

Priscilla had very few friends in her childhood as she didn't really get along with too many her age.

As Priscilla grew older, she grew more violent and hateful towards most people around her. Any villain who tried to kidnap her was open to her for a rude awakening. And these encounters were often fatal. At one point, Arachnos tried to recruit her into their ranks with offers of power and influence. She immediately refused.


The Rikti Invasion of 2002 and after

While the Rikti were invading Paragon City and the Rogue Isles, Priscilla saw villains and heroes working together to fight against a new threat. As she watched heroes and villains alike fall one by one, she began to fear that the invasion would be the end of humanity. The infamous villain Burnsider Bill tried to murder her father using his pyrokinesis and abduct her mother. Her parents were begging for their lives as she watched the villain push his weight around.

Every thing that was happening that year ran through her mind all at once. The Rikti were trying to invade the planet. Heroes and Villains were dying against this new threat as they worked together. The soldiers she once saw patrol her area were now being slaughtered by the masses. And Burnside Bill was trying to harm the very few people Priscilla ever cared about. The rage bubbled inside of her as she watched her parents cower in fear. Instead of being afraid, she felt an all consuming rage. Everything went completely black.

When she regained consciousness, she was standing with a pipe wrench in her hand. What was once Burnside Bill appeared to be a bloody mess with nothing recognizable as a head attached to the neck. Everyone around her was terrified of her for what had happened. It was then that she could never go back to any semblance of who she was.

After the Rikti War, her mother started falling ill. The doctors soon revealed that she developed a form of neurological atrophy caused an unknown condition. Priscilla tried everything she could to help pay for her mother's medical expenses.
