Background

One of the world's premier martial artists, the Black Scorpion has long been known as an expert in hand to hand combat and has trained many insurgents and aspiring martial artists in her own style of fighting based loosely on kung fu.  She has always been based in Cairo and knows the city well, so much so that she remains entrenched in the sprawling metropolis even though the government and military are now under the power of the Sons of Set.  The Black Scorpion has not submitted to Nepythys and her band of zealots and operates as she always has done, earning the ire of the priestess.

No one knows who the Black Scorpion really is, or from what family she comes from.  What is known is that she is a devout Muslim, but her knowledge of Islam has been warped by her burgeoning extremist views to such an extent that she now follows her own warped version of the religion.  She believes that she is undergoing a jihad against America and has become regular threat to American interests in Egypt for the last decade.  She trains insurgents which bolster the ranks of terrorists worldwide.  Her goal is to destroy America, but she is not blind enough to believe that America is the only threat.  The arrival of the Sons of Set has reminded the Black Scorpion that enemies of Islam are everywhere.  She has developed a particular dislike for Nepythys and plans on attempting an assassination in the near future.

Her past activities have mostly gone unnoticed by the world at large, although she has been well known amongst martial artists for decades.  However, in the late 1990s she was responsible for the death of Sunrise, a young member of Sanctity who had been visiting Egypt as part of a Vatican diplomatic mission.  The Black Scorpion went on to kill another two members of the Vatican's superhero team as well as hospitalising another ten others in the course of ten years.  She proudly boasts of nearly killing a Catholic every year.  These attacks have earned Black Scorpion a powerful enemy, and Sanctity ranks her in the Top Ten most wanted uberhumans on the planet.

Personality

The Black Scorpion is a hard woman, devoid of compassion and fuelled by her jihad against America.  Hatred is her driving force and she has shown herself to be a formidable and relentless opponent.  She fears nothing and cannot be shocked.  In her heart she believes she is the perfect Muslim warrior and will not hear any criticism of Islam or of her position as one of the religion's avenging agents.

She has developed a love for her home city, Cairo, and has grown uncomfortable with the Sons of Set taking control of all levels of power in the city from the government to the criminal underworld.  While she hates to ally herself with Western heroes, the Black Scorpion feels that it may be necessary in order to topple Nepythys.  She has, on occasion worked with the Five Pillars, but has currently earned their wrath after nearly killing Iron Amir en route to a peace mission in Israel.  The Black Scorpion sees the Five Pillars as weak and misguided servants of Islam, while they tend to see her as a psychotic killing machine.

Quote

"I act to rid this world of infidels, to make it a place more suited to peace and paradise."

Powers

The Black Scorpion has developed her own kung fu style and has trained many young men and women in its use, mostly from middle eastern countries although there have been a significant number of Indonesian extremists who have travelled to learn from her.  While she is an uberhuman it is her mastery in hand to hand combat which makes her deadly.  Her uberhuman abilities include a resistance to most forms of injury, a truly breathtaking regenerative power and an immunity to most zootoxins.  She also possesses uberhuman strength and speed.

Appearance

As the Black Scorpion she appears as a strong and graceful woman garbed in a loose black robe which tapers into tight trousers.  She wears a modified hajib to conceal her face and to adhere to her idea of Islam.  She wears pale gold rings around her neck, wrists and calves.  When not in costume she appears as a serious-faced woman with violent facial scars around her neck and upper body.  She rarely appears out of costume, but when she does she wears conservative dress.
