Aurelia was a university student studying ethics in biological science.  On a journey to the Vatican to kneel in front of the Pope, Aurelia began to glow with joy in his presence.  The light continued to grow in intensity until she was taken away by security.  As she dimmed she realised that she had manifested uberpowers.  She was mortified, thinking that such a thing was obviously against the Will of God.  The security officers tried to calm her but it wasn't until a Cardinal came to visit her that she controlled her light.  The Cardinal told her that the Pope was very pleased that she had felt such joy in his presence and that he hoped she would study with Sanctity, and perhaps, in time, join their ranks.

She went back to university but the thoughts remained with her.  Within a month she returned to the Vatican and met with Sanctity.  Her powers were tested and she was granted limited membership with the team.  In time she proved herself and was granted full membership.  Guardian helped design the Staff of Light which augmented Aurelia's natural powers, and with the staff in her possession she took to the air as Preghiera, or Prayer.

She is fond of retelling her story, that if you pray hard enough for something it very well may come true.

Preghiera is new to the 'game' of superheroics, but has already seen a lot of pain and suffering in third world countries. She truly believes she can help the world but has some problems dealing with those who have different views on religion. A hard worker, especially in the field, she manages to get into the thick of things regardless of whether she has the abilities to cope with it, and sometimes it is clear that she tries too hard.

She would never admit it, but Preghiera prefers to fight super criminals than help villages build wells or shelter.  She is young and wants to enjoy her powers.

"If we all work together there is nothing that we cannot achieve. It is only when we drift apart that the world seems such a bleak place."

Preghiera is able to generate light and has developed a series of 'stunts' such as the ability to turn invisible, fly through the air and project solid light blasts from her hands or eyes.  Guardian manufactured the Staff of Light which augments her natural abilities as well as channelling them into new areas such as creating a Light of Truth which forces targets to tell the truth, creating force fields made of light and manipulating solid light constructs.


Beautiful and athletic, Aurelia is not a shrinking violet.  Before becoming a superhero she was a figure skater and enjoyed the crowds and admiration.  As a superhero she continues to revel in her fame.  As Preghiera, she wears a white tunic over dark grey pants and a blue-white cloak.  The Staff of Light is an intricate implement with a circle head which collects and amplifies her natural light.  Aurelia has silky black hair and a beautiful laugh.  At first glance she appears beautiful, but some people find her arrogance something of a turn-off.
