Background

Fatima was sixteen when she started hearing voices in her head. She was astonished and a little frightened to hear the thoughts of the servants of her father’s household. Fatima found that she couldn’t stop hearing the voices either.

It was at an official reception in Cairo that Fatima heard the thoughts of a man who was going to shoot her father. Her father was a high ranking member of the Egyptian foreign ministry. The man was a religious fanatic, who felt that her father had betrayed Islam because he had adopted too many Western practices.

Fatima tried to warn her father, but failed to prevent the assassination attempt. Her father was shot, but it was only in the shoulder. This attacked on her father caused her other uber-abilities to break loose. A pair of beautiful eyes materialized over the assassin and they flashed in anger and pain exploded in the assassin’s mind. The pain, however, wasn’t enough to incapacitate the assassin who then fled the reception. The glowing eyes followed the fleeing assassin. No matter where he ran to or tried to hide the eyes followed relentlessly. In a panic the man heedlessly ran across a busy intersection, only to be struck by a bus killing him instantly. Back that the reception Fatima fainted.

When Fatima awoke from her faint the voices came rushing back. Fatima felt that she was going crazy. She begged her mother to take her to the hospital to speak with her father. After Fatima explained about the voices and how she had seen the assassin struck by the bus her father thought for a while before for telling her about the Supergenetic, Arcane and General Extra-Terrestrial group also known as S.A.G.E. He explained that he knew that the S.A.G.E. group were investigating psychic phenomena at their Angkor Wat facility in Cambodia.

The next week the family picked up the household and flew to Cambodia. Her father reasoned that things were getting too perilous in Cairo and that accepting a diplomatic assignment to Cambodia would be the cure he and his daughter needed.

Fatima reached the Angkor Wat facility via a company helicopter. It was there in the mysterious Angkor Wat that Fatima received most of her training in controlling her abilities. The doctor pronounced that Fatima was indeed a telepath as well as a clairvoyant. Fatima remained at the facility for several years continuing to learn to control her abilities and aiding S.A.G.E. in their research as well.

Eventually her father was recalled to Egypt and Fatima felt obliged to return to Egypt with her family. To celebrate their return a party was held. At the party Fatima’s father announced his retirement and that Fatima was joining the foreign ministry in his place.

Fatwa crashed the party, however. Imam wanted to use Fatima’s powers for his conquest of Arabia. The only thing preventing Fatima from being kidnapped was the sudden appearance of Iron Amir, who had been attending the party in his civilian guise. He battled with Saladin the strongman of Fatwa. Eventually Iron Amir got the upper hand driving Fatwa away.

Fatima was greatly impressed with Iron Amir and when he pursued the fleeing Fatwa, Fatima donned a veil to disguise her identity and went on after him. Using her abilities Fatima who called herself El-Mandil or the Veil, along with Iron Amir chased Fatwa out of Egypt. Later when Iron Amir formed the Five Pillars, the Veil was one fo the first Uber he recruited for his group.

Personality

First and foremost, the Veil is a diplomat. While she can certainly hold her own in a fight, she prefers to end a battle before it even begins. This is not to say that the Veil won’t pull her weight. Actually it’s the opposite. She’s determined to be the best at what she does, and won’t let the other members of Five Pillars outshine her just because she’s a woman.

Quote

“Allow me to part the curtain of your mind and reveal your mysteries to me.”

Powers

The Veil is a telepath whose powers express themselves through a pair of eyes made of psychic energy. They appears as a set of large dark eyes surrounded by a nimbus of red energy. The Veil is able to read minds, project her thoughts, and entrap another persons mind through the eyes. In addition to her telepathic abilities, The Veil is also clairvoyant, able to see over great distances and track whomever she’s following.

Appearance

Fatima is a beautiful Egyptian woman with long curly black hair and alluring eyes. For a costume she wears a red Abaya with golden embroidery. To hide her identity she wears a sheer red veil. Oddly enough no one has every connected Fatima with the Veil. On her hands The Veil wears a lot of silver jewellery, and even has a nose ring. When using her powers, a pair of beautiful eyes are manifested. When not in her Veil guise, Fatima dresses fairly conservatively to reflect her government position.
