Background

Ronald Pierce made a name for himself first as a mercenary after leaving the Australian Army and later as a member of The Mountain Men. He was a crackshot with the pistol and perhaps the most fearless man amongst the Mountain Men. While he was proudly Australian he rarely returned to his homeland, preferring to live in North America. Although he never admitted to abandoning his wife and two children in Parramatta, he resolutely refused to spend any more than a couple of weeks with them in any one year. He kept sending money home and considered that fair exchange for his independence.

Rowena was the eldest child and remembered a time when her father was home, but even her memory faded as she grew older. She wanted to impress him and took it upon herself to follow in his footsteps, enrolling in the armed forces at the age of seventeen. She trained the hardest and wasn't afraid to sabotage others in order to succeed. It was this cut-throat mentality which ultimately resulted in her dismissal from the Army, and for a time Rowena slipped into a depression.

It was ironic then, that at her lowest, Rowena was reunited with her father. He took her to Austria where he told her about his dealings with the Mountain Men who were then known as S.U.M.M.I.T. and professional mercenaries. Pierce had taken on the code name of Kosciuszko. Rowena was impressed and realised that her father did see something of himself in her. But then he explained that he needed her help because he was being tested by S.U.M.M.I.T. who (correctly) suspected Pierce of taking bribes on the side as well as leaking information to Interpol. He was told to launch a solo attack on Cairo, which would have been an easy assignment with no actual targets, just widespread mayhem; but the Egyptian capital had recently been covertly taken over by the Sons of Set. Kosciuszko knew this and so did S.U.M.M.I.T. but neither admitted it. Pierce's assignment was a test, a suicide run.

Pierce was getting old, though, and while many of the other members of his team were uberhuman, he was merely a highly trained soldier. His body was slowing down and his luck was running out. He decided to pull in his daughter to assist him. Unaware of his true motivations, Rowena readily agreed and threw off her depression in exchange for some modern hi-tech hardware.

They arrived in Tunis and began their journey towards Cairo, but were immediately intercepted by Menhit, one of the Sons of Set. Menhit explained that S.U.M.M.I.T. had been sold out by Africa Force in Botswana and that Pierce was going to be killed to settle an old debt. Menhit offered Pierce a chance to escape death by taking on an assignment for the Sons of Set. Rowena was relieved when her father accepted and they were taken to Botswana with the mission to assassinate any of the Tsholofelo family.

What followed was three days of terrible fighting in the streets of Gaborone. Rowena and her father destroyed the main police headquarters killing dozens of officers in a bid to draw out the Tsholofelo family who comprised the majority of Africa Force 5. They used a combination of explosives and strafing gunfire to force most of the populace into hiding, and when Parhelion, Peacemaker and Silver Sun arrived on the scene they targeted the heroes with armour-piercing ammunition provided by the Sons of Set.

The campaign was a mixed success. Silver Sun was hospitalised and Pierce and Rowena escaped. When they returned to the airstrip where the Sons of Set were supposed to provide an escape plane, they found that they had been betrayed. Menhit had alerted Parhelion and Africa Force 5 was there to greet the two soldiers. Pierce drew the attention from his daughter who escaped, even though every fibre of her being screamed at her to stay. Pierce refused to surrender and was killed in an explosion.

Rowena managed to return to Europe where she reported to Cho Oyu and demanded that she take her father's place amongst S.U.M.M.I.T. as the second Kosciuszko. Since being accepted she has been active in various assignments, including a two week assignment in Bosnia where she worked with the mercenary Partisan in systematically assassinated various heads of banking and finance institutions across the former Yugoslav republics. During their time together Rowena and Partisan began a fiery relationship, something which has been left to simmer as they returned to their respective mercenary outfits.

Personality
Rowena has been accepted into S.U.M.M.I.T. although she is not really considered on an equal footing to the rest of the team who are by and large uberhuman. Cho Oyu sees her as a soldier, which is essentially what she is. Rowena doesn't seem to care and hasn't made many lasting relationships amongst the members. She is seen as emotionally unstable and a little creepy, which is not really far from the truth. She is in need of some counselling about her father and upbringing but she will never admit it which means she is destined for a breakdown at some point. Considering her formidable combat training such a breakdown would inevitably involved bloodshed.
Quote
"I am a soldier, not a supervillain. You confuse the two at your own peril."
Powers

Kosciuszko is a soldier with access to a powerful automatic rifle and pistols. She is physically fit and a deadly hand to hand combatant, but is otherwise human.

Appearance

Rowena Pierce is tall and has broad shoulders. Her face is rather plain but she has a look of utter contempt on her face for most people, something which either makes people uncomfortable around her or something which often provokes aggression. She is tough and knows it. She wears combat fatigues over her body armour and carries automatic weapons.
