Elizabeth was one of Perth’s most dedicated police detectives. She recently had been given the promotion to the head of the Major Crimes Division. Life couldn’t seem to get much better for the police detective, but in a way it did. Her boyfriend, Cyrus Swan, a noted philanthropist in the city finally proposed marriage. Elizabeth was on cloud nine. Then she was handed the Dame Edna case.

Dame Edna was an up and coming crime boss in Perth. Things had recently changed in that Dame Edna’s gang had been seen with some high tech weapons. It wouldn’t be long before Dame Edna would overrun the other criminals in the city and even possibly challenge the police.

Elizabeth found the next few months difficult, heading up a major investigation into Dame Edna and planning a wedding. Things progressed on both fronts. Major Crimes was getting closer to Dame Edna, and Elizabeth found a good caterer.

Things came to a head when Elizabeth received a tip that Dame Edna was getting in an arms shipment at her warehouse in the Port District. Elizabeth quickly rounded up an assault force to raid the warehouse. The raid went well and the police rounded up all of Dame Edna’s gang along with a few of Evol Khan’s henchmen, who had been supplying Dame Edna with high tech weapons. The only bad part of the raid was that Dame Edna escaped.

The next day it was Elizabeth’s wedding. Dame Edna and all the crime in Perth was forgotten for the day; and what a magical day it was. All of the most important people in Perth attended the wedding. Truly it was a magical day. Elizabeth was so happy.

That night as Elizabeth and her new husband were resting in their honeymoon suite atop the Perth Hilton a knock came to the door. Cyrus got up and opened the door thinking it was housekeeping delivering their late night champagne. The sight that greeted Cyrus was an older blue hair dame not pushing a cart with a bottle of bubbly on it but holding the biggest blaster Cyrus had ever seen.

“Room service,” announced Dame Edna as she opened fire point blank into Cyrus’s chest. Cyrus was blown back into the room with Dame Edna following. Bursts of energy quickly followed as Dame Edna gleefully came in. She shot Cyrus a second time before turning her weapon on Elizabeth. With a desperation born out of terror Elizabeth grabbed her police revolver and was able to wound Dame Edna. However, Dame Edna wasn’t knocked down and was able to blast Elizabeth square in the chest throwing her back against the rooms window which instantly shattered in a million pieces.

Elizabeth didn’t remember the rest as her body came hurling out of the window. Unconscious her body plummeted down and down. Elizabeth wouldn’t died that night if it wasn’t for the swimming pool and a lot of luck.

It would take months of rehab and a few surgeries to fix all the damage. As for Cyrus Swan, he died that night, and Dame Edna would spend the rest of her life in Bandyup. Elizabeth struggled mightily with her injuries and the loss of her husband.

She retreated from the world spending all her time at Swan Manor. Elizabeth would probably stayed in the mansion if she hadn’t been paid a visit from Wong Li Tao who is known the world over as Go. The sifu or master, helped Elizabeth not only deal with her physical problems but with her grief as well. Go spent several months with Elizabeth helping her. Under his tutelage Elizabeth mastered White Crane Kung Fu, and also came to the conclusion that what she was doing in the police force wasn’t enough to combat crime in Perth. It was Go who suggested to Elizabeth take a costumed identity, the martial arts master knew several the world over. Intrigued she took him up on his suggestion. Go assisted Elizabeth design a costume and construct a variety of weapons. Thus was Black Swan created.


Elizabeth has turned her tragedy around. Her way of dealing with the grief of the death of her husband has been in fighting crime as the costumed vigilante Black Swan. Elizabeth fights crime both as a vigilante and as police detective with the Perth police department. Without Cyrus, fighting crime is the only thing that brigs her solace.

When not fighting crime, Elizabeth has to fight the bitterness of the loss of Cyrus has brought to her life. It’s a rare day that Elizabeth smiles much. Her fellow police officers always take care when dealing with Elizabeth. A few have even suggested therapy for her.

Even with all the death and grief in her life, Elizabeth has yet to take a life. She made a promise to herself and Cyrus that she wouldn't intentionally take another persons life. So far she hasn't.


"Okay...It's your choice. We can do this the hard way or the easy way."


Elizabeth is a highly trained martial artist, who studied under Go himself. She keeps herself in peak physical condition and constantly trains. As Black Swan she’s at least equivalent to an Olympic athlete.

Elizabeth wears an armored costume that is made of a high tech material able to protect her from almost any kind of assault. In addition she wears a cape that also adds further protection to her. Also Elizabeth can use the cape an emergency parachute.

Black Swan wears a mask that protects her from bright flashes, as well as allowing her to see things quite clearly at night and at distances. The mask further protects Black Swan from mental attacks. Lastly the mask contains a miniaturized radio allowing Black Swan access to all radio bands.

Besides her mask and her cape, Black Swan’s most important device his her utility belt. It’s from her utility belt that Black Swan keeps her weapons. Black Swan is known for her Swanarangs, which are swan shaped boomerangs. She’s quite proficient in throwing them. Other items on her belt are knock out pellets, flash pellets, and smoke pellets. Black Swan also has a swing line on her belt allowing her to swing from building to building. Lastly Black Swan has a mini-camera and mini-recorder on her belt letting her never to forget anything.


Elizabeth is an attractive woman with short black hair and dark brown eyes. She’s very physically fit, and looks quite athletic. As Black Swan she wears a two tone body suit with the majority of it being black. The inner leg of her trousers are a yellow color. In addition her gloves and boots are a similar color, as is her utility belt. Epaulettes at her shoulders pin her black cloak to her back which reaches to her ankles. Elizabeth hides her identity from the public with a domino mask that is red.

When not fighting crime as Black Swan, Elizabeth typically dresses as a plainclothes detective. She usually wears a white long sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up, along with gray slacks and sensible shoes. Elizabeth isn’t known to dress up or wear makeup.
