Background

Opi Rahman opposed the capitulation of Bangladesh to Indian rule. She was among the thousands of protesters in Dhaka during 2002 but when the government agreed to the terms as set out by the Indian forces, the protesters seemed to lose spirit. Bangladesh was impoverished and those who stood against the decision soon found themselves targeted by pro-Indian forces. India promised to alleviate some of the hardships. People wanted food.

However, Opi continued to be defiant. Her family were poor, from the north of the country. She moved to Dhaka and took up residence at the Indian consulate among a group of ten protesters. One night the group were cleaned out by Harvest and overseen by local Bengali hero, Umbra. No one heard from the group again. The bodies were well hidden.

Opi woke up the next day in a fishing village 100km from Dhaka.

She recalled the massacre the night before but had no mark on her body - even though she could still feel the organic blades of Harvest's arm-weapons. Somehow she had been saved... or born again.

The Assembly discovered her miracle soon after when she returned to Dhaka and demanded answers. She was caught on a CNN news camera and took the opportunity to retell the story of Harvest's killing spree. The interview lasted less than five minutes before Opi was dragged away and the journalists were ushered into a debriefing room.

Opi knew she was going to die.

When she saw the pistol she closed her eyes.

A lot of things happened next. She heard the gunshot, felt the pain... and then she was briefly aware of movement, like she was floating but moving a lot faster than the clouds she imagined in her mind.

The next day she awoke in the mountains.

It seemed that death was just a stage that Opi was destined to go through for her country, and that she now had the opportunity to pass through that 'undiscovered country' and come out on the other side on more than one occasion. The mountain people took her in and Opi decided that she needed to re-evaluate her options.  It wasn't everyday that a person realised that they were effectively immortal.

The Assembly was too powerful. The Indian Government was too sprawling and invasive. They had agents everywhere and they had seemed to cement their position on the sub-continent. No foreign country was prepared to challenge India, and Bangladesh seemed quite content to become a protectorate. The local heroes who had been on the scene before the invasion had all disappeared.

Only Opi remained.

She dedicated herself to opposing the occupation.  And she knew that she would have to oppose it one day at a time.  She couldn't defeat the oppressors by herself: she needed the support of the world and her own people.

She put her life on the line frequently and confronted the Assembly on numerous occasions. All of the encounters ended in death or escape. Opi would either slip away and evade their scouts by moving amongst the frightened and oppressed people of Bangladesh, or she would be struck down dead and mystically transported to safety.

As Shapla she became a symbol for her people. And she also became a thorn in the side of the occupiers. To this day the Assembly has a team dedicated to hunting her down and neutralising her abilities.  As Opi, she continues to operate as a peace worker amongst the people of Bangladesh.  Indian authorities were never able to identify her real name which has allowed her to operate in two identities, even though both lives are still fraught with danger.

Personality
Opi is dedicated to bringing peace and prosperity to Bangladesh. She wants India out of her homeland, and more than that, she wants her people to enjoy a higher standard of living. Bangladesh has long suffered poverty and Opi hopes to turn that around by highlighting their plight to the international community. She has developed a sense of Fate about her, and knows that she is destined to die many times in her quest to bring about liberation.

She has a very pacifistic attitude, combining elements of Buddhism and Islam, although she is not really a strong follower of either faith. She is in the process of developing her own outlook on life and the universe. In fact, she has developed something of a following amongst the Bengali people, and through her courageous fighting and her altruistic healing abilities, Shapla has become a modern day prophet and role model.
Quote
"To strike me down is to strike at your own weakness."
Powers

Shapla possesses a remarkable healing ability which is enhanced by a fail-safe teleportational twist. When her body begins to shut down and fail her physical form vanishes and reforms far, far away from the immediate danger. She believes it is a form of reincarnation, but it is actually an uber ability which is triggered by near-death experiences.

Interestingly, her rebirth does not include any sign of injury or disfigurement.  Her body returns to its pristine state.

In addition to her healing ability Shapla is an accomplished practitioner of karate and uses her powers to oppose the enemies of Bangladesh - although she does more good work behind the scenes than in direct confrontations.

Appearance

Shapla is a strong minded woman whose strength has infused her body. She is always confident and has her eyes forward. She never looks away or bows to fear, and she also possesses infectious courage so that those who stand beside her are able to share in her confidence. As Shapla, she wears a loose fitting backless white blouse and showcases the immaculate white water lily tattoo which graces her back. She wears black pants and boots and hides her identity with a black and white mask.

As Opi Rahman, peace activist, she wears jeans and t-shirts which are comfortable and hard wearing.

When she uses her healing powers there is a scent of lily in the air and the affected area usually glows white for a brief time.
