Background

Rapunzel was playing with her friends at the schoolyard when the soldiers came. A bunch of soldiers wearing SS uniforms disgorged from a truck in front of the school. These soldiers were strange because they were all wearing gas masks under their combat helmets making it impossible to identify them. It was only later that Rapunzel was find out why they were hiding their faces.

The schoolmaster came out of the school to find out what the ruckus was all about, when a handsome SS officer stepped out of the truck. He was quickly joined by a civilian man dressed all in white. The pair came up to the schoolmaster presenting him with official looking papers.

“Herr schoolmaster,” the man in white said. “I'm Herr White and this is my companion Hauptsturmführer Mengele. Under the orders of Reichsführer-SS Himmler we are here to take into protect custody the entire student body.”

“But,” the schoolmaster tried to protest. “Why would the Reichsführer be interested in our children? This is most irregular.”

The man in white looked bored and pulled out a cigarette case from his breast pocket, quickly lit up and blew a smoke ring into the blue sky. Meanwhile the Hauptsturmführer had moved over the the children. He seemed to be studying them, smiling at some, frowning at others. To the ones he liked he handed out candy and ignored the others. He took a particular interest in Rapunzel.

Crouching down he offered her a hard candy and asked. “What is your name Fraulein?”

“Rapunzel, sir, Rapunzel Winterfeld,” she said stuffing the treat in her mouth.

Mengele smiled and patted her blond head before standing again.

Turning to Herr White he said, “These will do. Get them on the truck.”

Again the schoolmaster protested but the strange soldiers pushed him back as they loaded the children into the back of the truck. Rapunzel was one of the last lifted up and roughly shoved into the back of the truck. As the truck drove away she could see the schoolmaster chasing after the truck yelling. The driver never slowed down and he was left in the dust.

The truck took them deep into the mountains in Southern Bavaria. None of them were dressed for the cold weather and they all huddled close to one another. As for the soldiers they paid the children no attention at all. Rapunzel didn't like them because they never took their gas masks off and they smelled bad too. Exhausted, she along with the others fell to sleep only to wake up when the truck came to a stop.

The flap was thrown open and once again they were made to get out of the truck. All of them stood shivering in the courtyard of some castle. It was night out but floodlights from nearby towers illuminated the courtyard completely. They were made to line up for inspection as Mengele came into view with a riding crop in his hand. He smiled at them as he tapped the crop against his palm.

“Welcome children Schloss Adler.” he said. “Here my children you will be a part of a grand experiment, an experiment that will fundamentally affect the future of the Reich. Oh yes...Our enemies will fear you.”

Then one of the girls screamed pointing a finger at one of the soldiers who had removed his gas mask. One eye was larger than the other and his nose was shaped like a potato. He gave the children a lopsided grin and a little drool rolled down his chin. All the children huddled together in fear as the rest of the soldiers removed their gas masks and their faces were just as grotesque. Mengele didn't seem to notice his soldiers deformities or the childrens fears.

The next couple of years were pure hell. Rapunzel was subjected to chemical conditioning, exposed to strange radiation, painful surgeries, and primitive genetic manipulation. She wasn't alone in this torture, all her classmates were similarly used. However, Rapunzel felt that she was singled out being a favorite subject for Mengele. Hours upon of hours of experiments started to make changes in her physiognomy. Rapunzel was getting stronger, and faster, but the strangest change was with her hair. Her hair had started growing, getting longer and longer every day until it reached down to her ankles. However, even there Mengele wasn't satisfied. He not only changed her hair color from a rich auburn to a platinum blond but her eye color from a deep brown to a startling blue. Mengele treated her as one of his “special” children.

Things started to change when allied bombers started bombing the nearby countryside. Fearing the loss of his children Mengele constructed cryo-static chambers for his most prized children. There were six of his most prized, with Rapunzel being the last to be led to a chamber. High up in the sky bombs were just being dropped and she was laid down.

“Do not fear my dear child,” Mengele said as he planted a kiss upon her forehead. “You will sleep but a little, and when your Vaterschmerz awakens his little Sleeping Beauty the world will know pain the likes it has never behold before.”

Mengele laughed a laugh that sent a shiver down Rapunzel's spine. With a wave of his hand one of his children flipped a switch and the transparent covering silently slide over her locking her in a crystal coffin. Rapunzel felt cold for just a moment and the last thing she remembered was the smiling face of Joesph Mengele peering down on her.

Rapunzel was to stay in that chamber for another 55 years. However, it was the smiling face of Mengele who awoke her from her long sleep. Instead it was the face of a stranger. He wore a strange blue uniform with a gold star just above the heart. Standing behind him was the schoolmaster.

“Time to wake up senorita,” he said leaning down and picking her up out of the cryo-stasis chamber. She could feel the muscles underneath and she clutched him tightly.

Spying the schoolmaster she proclaimed, “Schoolmaster why did you abandon us?”

“Don't blame him senorita,” the man said. “That isn't your schoolmaster. His name is Karl and is the son of your late schoolmaster. If it wasn't for Karl we probably would've never discovered you.”

“Where are the others,” Rapunzel asked.

“Well,” the man said. “It looks like two of the chambers failed. You don't want to know what happened to them. One was empty and two others were crushed. I think those must have been destroyed during the bombings near the end of the war. As for the empty one, well we just don't know.”

“Put me down please,” she asked.

Rapunzel was a little unsteady on her feet. Taking a deep breathe she looked around the chamber, which was in shambles.

“What happened?” she asked.

“Well senorita,” he said. “That would be a long story, and this place isn't really safe.”

Turning towards a wall he said, “Control this is Castillo. Open a Pathway.”

In the blind of an eye a blue field sprang up against the wall. Holding out his hand Rapunzel came to him and together with Karl following they entered the field and they were gone. Barely a second later they came out in a different place. This place wasn't like Schloss Adler. While it looked like a castle there were strange machines all over the place. Men and women dressed like the stranger were busily working all over the place.

“Welcome to the Peak, the headquarters of EURO, the European Uberhuman Response Organization and I am Director Diego Alvar y Castillo, most people call me Director Castillo. Our mission is to protect Europe from menaces like the one we rescued you from. The man you know as Josef Menegle is today known as Vaterschmerz and his followers of altered people who call themselves the Kinder der Zukunft are a major threat to Europe. Are you willing to help us stop such threats? It won't be easy but we'll all behind all the way.”

Rapunzel stood there for a moment thinking as he hair twitched back and forth.

“Yes, yes I will,” she said.

“Alright,” Director Castillo said. “Let's begin.”

Personality

Rapunzel often has nightmares of the day when Vaterschmerz took her from her parents and started performing his terrible experiments on her and the dozens of other children under his care. However, the worst part of her nightmares is when Vaterschmerz put her into the cyrostasis chamber. Two to three times a week she relives the events. She often wakes up screaming on those nights. Rapunzel rarely get back to sleep after one of her dark dreams.

Despite the effects of the experiments performed upon Rapunzel and the other children which turned the majority of the survivors in raving killers, Rapunzel turned out to be an exception. While she doesn't have an aversion to killing an opponent who might deserve to die, she'll always only use lethal for those who truly deserve to die.

Powers

Rapunzel has an extremely long, thick head of hair, in which all the strands has a tensile strength and shear resistance greater than a titanium wire of the same thickness. She further has a psychokinetic ability to animate her hair to perform a number of feats. Normally, her hair is around 6 feet in length but can lengthen the locks to almost three times its normal length without loosing any of its overall strength. Rapunzel can use her hair to her to pick up objects or foes and hold onto them or throw them over great distances. She can snap a lock of hair through the air like a whip, the tip itself moving faster than the speed of sound, which can pierce steel. Rapunzel can also fling her hair in such a way that single strands of hair that can find weak points in the strongest armors. She can strangle opponents by wrapping locks of hair around their neck. Naturally this ability isn't effective against those with a force field, an armored neck, or not breathing. Rapunzel can fan her hair out and have the strands grab projectiles out of the the air before they have a change of striking her. The hair acts like an extension of Rapunzel almost like a third arm.

Due to the experiments of Vaterschmerz done on Rapunzel has granted her with superior strength, reaction time, stamina, resistance to injury and speed compared to a regular human. Extreme changes in heat or cold have little or no effect on Rapunzel. Being an agent of EURO, Rapunzel wears a reinforced costume that protects her from most attacks. Another advantage of her eugenics is that she can sprint like an Olympic athlete.

Rapunzel has also received extensive combat training from EURO.

Appearance

Rapunzel is a tall willowy woman whose most distinguishing characteristic is her long blond hair that reaches down to her ankles. When lost in thought or agitated her hair moves by itself. Rapunzel usually keeps her hair coiled up to keep her identity a secret when not it costume. Otherwise Rapunzel is a very beautiful woman with striking blue eyes that at times look haunted.

When dressed in her Rapunzel costumes, Rapunzel wears a skintight blue leotard with matching gloves and boots. To protect her identity she wears a hooded mask that covers the majority of he face leaving the entire lower half of her face free. Rapunzel wears a golden belt across her waist. However, when Rapunzel isn't acting as an agent of EURO she wears stylish clothing.
