Background

Dagnja Balodis came to be in charge of the Winter Palace detention centre after working with the Russian government, particularly in the area of uberhuman affairs. Although she left her position in Russia before the official formation of Russian Dawn she was involved with some of the preliminary work in organising the superhero team. She returned to Latvia to take up the position of CEO for Bruninieks Ziemassvetki after the former CEO was driven insane after several uberhuman criminals escaped the facility.

Since her arrival there have been no more major breakouts, although the Winter Palace is still considered secondary to the major international uberhuman correctional and detention facilities. The Palace only deals with lower level uberhumans.

Balodis has developed an impressive CV beginning as a costumed superhero, the Blue Fairy, in the late 1970s when she worked against the Soviet Union as a hero for democracy. Her career was short-lived and although she was never captured by the communists she was forced into hiding in the United Kingdom where her career gradually faded away. During the 1980s she began to work with Dr Saul Numen and was working with him when he established the Numen-Kami Institute. It was during this time that Balodis began to take a more active interest in uberhuman physiology and psychology, something which led her to investigate the ways uberhuman powers could be negated or neutralised.

After the fall of the Iron Curtain Balodis travelled to Russia as part of a Numen-Kami Institute delegation, and while there she was convinced by the new government to stay on board and assist with the uberhuman issues within Russia.

 

Personality

Balodis is a woman who works within guidelines. She never breaks the rules and looks poorly on those who do. She has a history of condemning vigilante actions and has worked closely with the Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian governments in looking at ways to curb vigilante activities. With that in mind, she is also a proud supporter of democracy. In her time as the Blue Fairy she wantonly broke the rules and opposed the Soviet Union. If this is brought up she quickly dismisses it, explaining that the world was a very different one to the one she lives in now. She does not see the actions of vigilantes as justifiable - just selfish actions of anarchists.

 

Quote

"This place could certainly use a little magic touch..."

 

Powers

As the Blue Fairy, Balodis had access to a modest number of magic effects. The exact nature of her magic abilities was never disclosed, although she has alluded to her grandmother being a 'real' fairy. Her magic powers have diminished to such a point that she is only able to levitate and hover in the air. She also possesses an inordinate amount of natural luck and is one of the most stubborn women you will ever meet.

 

Appearance

Dagnja Balodis is a very industrious and efficient woman in her late forties. She dresses conservatively and appears severe to those who don't know her. Her hair is silver and she wears pointed spectacles which somewhat cloud her otherwise sparkly blue eyes. She tends to wear in all shades of blue - something which began during her time as the Blue Fairy.
