Background

Sycorax comes from a pocket world within the Shadow Dimension which was accidentally destroyed by the wandering mystic, Prospero. Her world was populated by amorphous beings of shadow which never had the need to take on permanent forms and communicated through a form of telepathy. When Prospero arrived in their world and collapsed it as part of a mystical experiment, the being which would become Sycorax was the only survivor. She was drawn into the Earth dimension where she was forced to take on a solid form. Disorientated, she was determined to hunt down the World Destroyer. She researched his name, found and read Shakespeare's 'Tempest' and took on the name of Sycorax, identifying herself as someone whose who culture was displaced by Prospero. She continued to research, but as she did so she realised that Earth was home to such diverse knowledge. Her anger subsided and she came to realise that there was nothing she could do to undo the damage Prospero had done.

Nonetheless, she continued to search for Prospero and eventually tracked him down outside of Nowhere, unwittingly stopping him from discovering the secret settlement of magic users. Sycorax lectured a surprised, and underpowered, Prospero about the dangers of his research and the casualties, after which he apologised. Sycorax took the apology and left, finding herself in New York City. She continued her pursuit of knowledge by entering the world of books, eventually taking on a human form and becoming an editor.

Personality

Sycorax is a peaceful being, who has come to love Earth. She enjoys immersing herself in knowledge, whether it be through books or computer files. As a super hero, she is a retiring personality, always appearing in the background and never taking up the limelight. As the last of her race she realises that she will never find complete happiness, but is content to live the life she has been dealt.

Quote

"Peace must be our goal. Not violence."

Powers

Sycorax is an incorporeal life form which has been forced into a solid state after the destruction of her world. She is able to return to her incorporeal state at will as well as access a variety of other shadow-related powers such as: drawing upon the Shadow Dimension to increase her strength and durability, create inky darkness or solid shadow shapes such as shadow lightning and shields. She is also able to step back into the Shadow Dimension and effectively teleport to other shadows. A recent use of her powers has to create dark shadow wings from her back which enable her to fly.

Sycorax is also a powerful shapeshifter, able to take on any humanoid form with remarkable accuracy. She uses this ability to maintain her secret identity as Editor Cora Rax, as well as to walk amongst humans without causing alarm. Her most comfortable form is lilac-skinned with dark purple hair.

Sycorax has never needed to breathe or eat in order to survive, although she has tried food on ocassion, deciding to become a vegetarian very soon after entering Earth's dimension.

Appearance

Sycorax didn't have a form originally, but when she was forced into the Earth Dimension she was required to take a solid shape in order to survive. She has refined this shape over the years and has created one which she is now comfortable with. She has lilac skin, slightly pointed ears, large black eyes and dark purple hair. She usually appears in a dark purple bodysuit with a white disk when she ventures into the world as Sycorax.

As Cora Rax, she appears to be of mixed Hispanic and Asian heritage, with dark brown eyes, black hair which hangs to her shoulders. She wears dark business attire when working, and when she isn't working, she generally isn't Cora. She reverts to Sycorax.
