Background

Gert Eulitzer worked for the South African government, just as her father once did before he was killed on a covert operation in Azambia. She was a telekinetic, just as her father was, and the government thought they would train her to be his replacement. Gert seemed to be set on a path but during her training she met and fell in love with a political activist from Botswana, Boipelo Tsholofelo. She listened to his smooth speeches and found herself helping with his political campaign which upset her government handlers. Boipelo convinced her to leave and she found herself swept up in his enthusiasm.

They were married although their happiness was short lived. Boipelo had contracted HIV and Gert found that she was infected as well. At first she was devastated but Boipelo convinced her that his mother would find a cure, which Gert thought was impossible until she met the woman. Kagiso Tsholofelo was an uberhuman, just like Gert, but she seemed so much more accomplished and confident. Gert found herself humbled in the older woman's presence, but she was warmly welcomed into the family, even though Boipelo hadn't told them about the marriage.

Boipelo died two years later.

There had been no cure, although Kagiso did become obsessed with the search for one. Gert felt that her death was sealed too and gave up. She retreated into herself and wanted to lock everything away from her so she wouldn't be tempted to feel happiness again. She returned to Cape Town and tried to disappear.

But the Tsholofelo family were not about to let her slowly die in the shadows. The entire family turned up in Cape Town and convinced Gert that she was a part of their family no matter what she thought, and that she would not be dying that day. Instead they offered her a place at their side as they once again decided to operate as superheroes, bringing hope and life to thousands across Botswana and other African countries. Gert felt swept along, but the craziness of her new life managed to wash away most of her depression and fatalistic thoughts.

She decided to stay in the public eye.

She decided that she needed to show others who were infected with HIV that it was not an immediate death sentence.

And so she became Onus, taking on the role of spokesperson for HIV and AIDS sufferers, work which consumes much of her free time. When she is not campaigning she is usually occupied in one of the various vehicle bays at Africa Force 5 Headquarters.

Personality
Gert has moments of unshakable strength, but beneath that confidence is a feeling of desperation that she may get sick at any time. She enjoys working hard to keep her mind off her condition and takes pride in the positive work she does in communities and even overseas. She feels at home with the Tsholofelos but does miss Boipelo and his infectious words.
Quote
"If only people were more like machines maybe we'd get somewhere... yeah, I know, we'd be a planet full of killer robots but it'd be less complicated."
Powers

Onus is a telekinetic uber who is able to manipulate the world around her using her mind. These telekinetic abilities are restricted in that she can only affect the world within a ten meter radius. Within that area, however, she is able to produce devastating force bolts, protective walls of force and can use her powers to assist her with her mechanic work.

As a member of Africa Force 5, Onus wears a parhelion bodysuit. The bodysuit increases the wearer's strength, provides flight capabilities and a protective force field.

Appearance

Members of Africa Force Five all wear a standard uniform which is a skintight blue costume with light grey panels on the sides of the legs and arms, a darker grey for their gloves, boots and mask; and a black belt which displays the team logo. Each member also carries a concealed communicator in their ear.

Gert has a pale complexion and red hair which is usually worn in twin ponytails and reaches beyond her shoulders. She appears frail but is actually quite resistant and is not afraid to get her hands dirty, often appearing smeared with grease after working on the team's vehicles and equipment. She tries to smile at any occasion, but is prone to depression and can sometimes try to hide away from everyone, shrouding herself in dark clothes trying to become invisible.
