Background

The drifts of snow skirted both sides of the street, leaving the road dusted with only the thinnest layer of ice. In her third-storey office, Yelizaveta Galkin watched impassively as two men dragged out her employer and shot him in the street. Even though it was night, she could still see the dark red stain of Dascha's blood on the snow. The men were from the 'government', which really could have meant anything. It was 2003 and there was still a power struggle in Moscow, although most of the skirmishes were played out in the shadows. She worked in an accounting firm, but it was also a front for an underground communist newspaper known as Mladshii Brat, or 'Little Brother'. When the armed men arrived, she knew that they would all be killed. Dascha was but the first.

In September 1993, ten years earlier, the Russian President, Boris Yeltsin had created expansive new powers for himself by drafting a new constitution. He was immediately opposed by the Congress of People's Deputies, which were an assortment of communist politicians. Yelizaveta's father was a member of the Congress and after Yeltsin was deposed her father was one of the new members of Parliament. Life in Russia seemed to be about to enter a new era. The Communists celebrated.

But they hadn't counted on the military siding with Yeltsin. Tanks laid siege to the White House, trapping the newly formed government within the walls of perceived power. On November 4, elite forces stormed Parliament. One hundred and forty-eight people died in the liberation, including Yelizaveta's father. The leaders of the October Putsch were arrested, imprisoned and then released in February the following year.

Yelizaveta's father wasn't released. He had died and there was no coming back from that unknown country. And so, the teenage Yelizaveta had drifted into the ranks of Mladshii Brat, angry at the Reformists and wanting something, perhaps revenge, for her father's sacrifice. She wrote articles attacking the rates of inflation, Yeltsin's abuses of power, and his government's hypocrisy. The writing continued even as leadership changed hands. The problems escalated. The solutions slipped over into the realms of the impossible. After eight years she was tired of the extremist views of her editor, but she felt bound to the ideals of her father. She was trapped in a role, just like so many other Russians. Her father had principles. Through them she hoped to find a structure to her life. So far it was elusive. Communism was about equality. There was no rich and no poor. There were no haves and no have-nots. She knew it was idealism, but in her father's absence it was all she had.

"You. Downstairs."

Yelizaveta looked up from her desk at the man. He had a clean-shaven face, an old scar on his chin. His eyes were hidden behind shades, but she would recognise him. He knew it and she did as well, and therefore her life was forfeit. She stood up from her desk and straightened her skirt. There were already two other of her fellow writers at the door. She recognised the fear in their eyes but felt none for herself. As they walked slowly down the steps, she felt as if she was finally moving towards her destiny. When the door opened into the cold night she realised it was nearly Christmas.

She smiled.

And then the fires erupted all around her. Parked cars exploded, sending shattered glass into the street and even into the walls of the buildings. The fire seemed alive and hungry. It arced into the night and ripped at the armed men. Their screams were cut-off quickly, but the smell remained in Yelizaveta's nostrils, forcing her to cover her mouth and nose with her hands. She was gagging.

A man walked down the street, a dark coat whipping behind him in the wind. At his side were two young people: blonde hair and strong bodies. A boy and a girl. They wore distinctively Soviet costumes and Yelizaveta recognised them at once. She was on her knees in the snow, but at the sight of Oktober she pulled herself together and struggled towards the door she had just been marched out of.

Standing there was a woman with dark hair and even darker eyes. They were empty. Void.

"Baba Natasha," Yelizaveta murmured and was rewarded with a smile.

"Clever girl," she said, and Yelizaveta saw the flash of a blade in the woman's hands.

She whipped around back to the street and saw that as well as the armed men, Oktober had flailed the life out of her comrades. This wasn't a liberation. Oktober wasn't here to protect the newspaper or what it stood for. They were here to cause death. Apparatchik stopped walking and Chromedome and Matryoshka stopped behind him, framing his smaller body with their ideal forms. He held up a hand and a smile formed across his face.

"Lizon'ka, my dear. Your services at Mladshii Brat are no longer required, although I am here to offer your life an infinitely more gratifying purpose. You are not aware of your potential, which in itself is a blessing."

"What do you want?"

"I want you to help me find a nuclear missile," Baba Natasha said.

"You are a murderer," she said, turning back to the woman who stood half in shadows.

"Your dedication to the Communist cause has prevented your death at this time, Lizon'ka," Apparatchik said, calling her attention back to him. There was something about his voice, almost as if it was spoken as well as thought.

"Communism didn't save them, though, did it?" she shot back, angry at the deaths of the journalists. "How is it that your principles can be so easily applied?"

Apparatchik seemed saddened, but he was not about to enter a dialogue with a mere journalist. His eyes dilated and his mind reached out for her in an inky darkness. As it brushed against her mind, something was released. It began as a piercing white light, which brought itself up against the blackness of Apparatchik's own probing mind. As Apparatchik pushed harder, the light became more blinding.

And then Yelizaveta caught a glimpse into the mind of Leonid Ustoevsky. He was a scared little bureaucrat. Under the brooding and behind the psychotic bodyguards, Apparatchik was a born-and-bred bureaucrat. Yelizaveta realised that they were kindred spirits, or perhaps polar opposites. She was nothing more than a woman who found comfort in statistics and words. She would trade a conversation with a book any day. She would give up her power of speech before her power of sight.

Apparatchik did not react well to the intrusion into his mind.

But for an instant, Yelizaveta knew his every move even before he did. She fled down the side of the building which has been her home for almost a decade. She felt the blueprint of Apparatchik's plan inside her mind. She knew where Pitchblende was hiding, what his orders were, what his limitations were. She skirted out of his line of sight and made it onto the next street. She knew that Chromedome and Matryoshka were after her, but she also knew that they were their own worst enemy. Chromedome was jealous of Matryoshka among other things, and as Yelizaveta realised this so did the Oktober team mates. Images flooded their minds, feeding on their fears.

Yelizaveta jumped into the back of a taxi.

She didn't know how she had escaped Oktober, or whether they let her go, but they did know who she was so she couldn't return home. The taxi took her to the airport and Yelizaveta Galkin took a flight to Vienna. As she slept on the plane, her mind began to order itself into a new system. Vast expanses of her mind were opened and ordered for the collection of data. Her senses changed, allowing her to accept information from a variety of sources instantaneously. Even as she slept she was categorising the entire crew and passengers. When she awoke she knew intimate details of thirty strangers.

Walking down the steps into the snow earlier that night had been like walking into her destiny.

Yelizaveta recognised the change and later in the month she confirmed her active metagene. She cultivated a new identity and researched the metahuman phenomenon, writing articles for European journals under the name Luda Prentice, until she came into contact with Alexi Sergeivich Ivanov and the FSB. Although she refuses to discuss the particulars of their meeting, Yelizaveta was convinced to work with him in an unofficial capacity, although she was still based in Vienna. She worked for the FSB in combating organised crime, and later as a specialist in an anti-Red Scare task force. When Ivanov was promoted to General responsible for the formation and operation of Russian Dawn, Yelizaveta returned to Moscow as Perepis: team telepath and walking database.

Personality

Yelizaveta was always quiet and unassuming, prepared to observe situations rather than to participate, but she has recently developed a more outgoing personality. She is still happiest at a computer terminal, but finds the thrill of superheroics a welcome release from her everyday life. Her father, Vojislav Galkin, was a staunch Communist and she shares his political views, although she is not radical by any means. She prefers people to develop their own opinions and holds those who force opinions on others with utter contempt.

Yelizaveta considers the consumerism of most Western societies to be shallow and fleeting, but doesn't want to upset those who seem liberated by its approach. She prefers the liberties of access to world literature and is a prolific reader of both modern and traditional literature, to such an extent that she tends to judge a society by its literary works. She also likes to 'dabble' as a novelist.

Her creative outlets are well-hidden, however, and Yelizaveta's personality would normally be considered cold and abrupt. When her powers manifested during her conflict with Oktober, Yelizaveta had been working as an information technology specialist and journalist at Mladshii Brat, and has since adopted a kind of techno-speak when describing her powers. This has increased people's uneasiness. She has the unnerving habit of referring to herself as a repository for knowledge, much like a living computer.

Quote

"I shall refrain from comment, but I do hope you have a Plan B."

Powers

Perepis has the ability to 'log on' to other people's minds, granting her access to their thoughts, weaknesses and biographical data. She is able to use this information to create illusions in people's minds (generally exploiting their fears), increase the effectiveness of combat and skills for herself and anyone who she has 'networked' with, and can gradually erase the effects of mind control. She is able to establish a 'network' of minds which also provides limited protection against mental attacks, and this network can safely extend to eight minds. Any more than that causes intense distortion and feedback.

In addition to her telepathic abilities, Yelizaveta is a skilled bureaucrat and computer hacker, able to infiltrate the toughest of business empires and the most corrupt of underworld crime lords. She is a team player, able to enhance the abilities of her comrades, but she is also heavily reliant upon them for protection.

Appearance

Yelizaveta Galkin is a striking woman with blue hair tied back in a tightly braided pony tail. As Perepis, she wears a white costume with a low-slung utility belt sporting a red, white a blue buckle. The costume is made of microweave kevlar and comprises a sleeveless top, pants and boots. She has no family and has decided not to hide her identity, although she retains her deep cover of ex-patriot novellist, Luda Prentice.

Out of costume, Yelizaveta wears the standard olive coloured uniform of the Russian FSB. Off duty she prefers wearing suits, but is rarely off duty.
