Background

The man in the designer suit and fashionable hair cut, sweated like a pig as he was held over the ledge of the thirteenth-storey window. He spluttered something about not being responsible, about just filling demand, but the woman in the leather coat simply stared at his red and puffy face. She tilted her head and let go of the man and he slipped precariously towards death, reaching out only at the last moment to grab a hold of her flailing coat.

The coat held as his body gently bounced against the wall of the skyscraper.

"...please..?"

Vija Gulbis had not expected to find out the secrets of the Marcello toxic dump, but she had to search all avenues. This man, although he was extremely rich and the CEO of a mega-corporation, knew next to nothing. He was a bit player. She turned away, and in that movement her body glowed suddenly until it burst into an intense heat field. The man's fingers, clutching so desperately to her coat, were burnt and he instinctively let go and plummeted to his death.

Vija gestured around the room and it burst into flames.

In the basement carpark, she met Breeze, Starfish and Diamond Crusader: the rest of the Elementals.

Vija had handpicked them over the years to form a powerful, relentless force of vengeance. To seek out those who would poison or exploit the earth, and to deliver swift and merciless punishment to them. It was inevitably men who had corrupted the earth, and Vija knew from experience as a trade unionist in Latvia, that men were drawn to power, but were never able to master it.

She was different. She held power within herself: the power of the sun; and she was not concerned with holding it, but unleashing it upon the corrupt and greedy. As Morningstar she was a force of nature, leading the Elementals against Earth's tormentors.

 

Personality

Vija has complete faith in her role as vengeance-seeker. She believes that men are fools, and easily corrupted by power and greed, whether they be multimillionaire industrialist or beggars on the streets. It is not surprising that she has had some history with abusive men, but like most other things in her life before the Elementals, Vija remains silent on the specifics. She is systematic in her plans to destroy globalisation, and plans her targets well, never letting passions intervene when cold tactics are required.

She is an effective leader and cares for the welfare of her team mates, something she seems to lack when it comes to the general populace.

 

Quote

I am here to cleanse the world of scum like you.

 

Powers

Morning Star is able to generate a field of intense heat around her body which is capable of combusting materials in her area, as well as being focussed into a projective heat wave. She complements these abilities with a highly trained knife fighting technique making her a capable hand to hand combatant.

 

Appearance

Vija is a stern looking woman with short reddish-orange hair and piercing brown eyes which often seem more black than brown. She favours severe clothing, especially leather, and her Morning Star costume involves a long black leather jacket over a red leather corset and steel grey pants, as well as high black boots and a black leather choker. She also wears a short scabbard on her belt for her thick bladed knife.
