Background

Lily Brunswick was born to be a criminal, although her parents were rather too suburban for her tastes and sensibilities. Her father's brother, however, was a classy gangster during the 1970s and managed to hit the headlines several times before being captured by police and sent to prison where he still resides, thirty years later. Uncle Ian, who also went by the name of the Night Specter, was responsible for half a dozen police murders and countless underworld hits as well, so it wasn't a surprise that Lily's parents kept the truth about her uncle a secret.

She never really managed to find her niche at school and was always an outsider, so when she started to sprout wings it was just another thing to be embarrassed about and hide from everyone, even her parents.

And then one day Lily found herself embroiled in a turf war. Someone had called on Uncle Ian for help and he had turned them down, so they had searched for leverage. Lily became that leverage and was abducted. Uncle Ian was furious and vented his anger on the prison guards and the resulting melee concluded with his death. No one was charged.

But that left Lily in the clutches of desperate men who no longer had a reason to keep her around. Lily was a little nervous but managed to talk her way out of her no-win situation. She had overheard enough talk from her captors to work out who Uncle Ian was and she used that new knowledge to bluff her way into the group by telling them that she was following in her uncle's footsteps and vowed to become one of Britain's most notorious villains.

When she unfurled her wings, the gangsters seemed to believe her words and let her go after she promised to help them in a war against a rival gang. She was curious, so she agreed and that was the first time she held a gun.

It was kind of like love at first touch.

Years later, Lily Brunswick is a freelance hitman but prefers to work in the field of armed robberies. She no longer associates herself with the petty gangs of Edinburgh. She has gained a reputation as a versatile mercenary (and as a spunky gambler on the side), combining her aerial expertise with a natural affinity with firearms. In the past few months she seems to have joined forces with the mercenary group Celtic Fist, although given her history as an independent type of girl it remains to be seen how long she will stay with the outfit.

Personality
Capercaillie has found a place in society where she feels empowered and comfortable. She is no longer afraid of what other people might say about her, and has long ago surpassed her uncle's reputation so she no longer feels compelled to live up to his notorious reputation. She has grown to love guns which has become an obsession at various points of her life. She has developed a kind of mod style reminiscent of the 1920s, and it's an era she identifies with, especially the classic gangsters like Bonnie and Clyde. She likes to consider herself chic and fashionable and even models herself on Bonnie, although she would prefer to avoid the bloody demise of her idol.
Quote
"Hey boys, don't all run off at once... Capercaille has only just arrived!"
Powers

Capercaillie is an uberhuman with large black hawk-like wings. She is able to fly under her own power and can use her powerful wings to batter opponents. In addition to her wings, Capercaillie always carries at least two firearms (and usually many more). Her regular weapon is a Colt revolver, but when she knows she'll be facing superheroes or uberhuman opponents she brings out her Uber Slayer which is a modified firearm she managed to get her hands on, although the maker is unknown. Some suggest it was the Russian genius Professor, although Capercaillie always changes the subject when asked.

Appearance

Lily Brunswick is an attractive woman and spends a lot of time on her look which is very modish in the style of the 1920s. She wears her straight black hair in a bob and the fringe usually falls into her hazel eyes. She has black feathered wings which can expand to 2m in length, but which can also be drawn close into her back and strapped down to conceal them under shirts and jackets. Her costume is an armoured black stocking over which she wears regular clothes, usually in black and white colours. She doesn't maintain two identities and lives off her criminal activities, although she is generally not wanted by regular law enforcement agencies. She seems to only attract the Big Guns like Majestic and Knightwatch.
