Background

Susan Barras was an accomplished thief at the age of eighteen and established a name for herself, the Silver Phantom.  She excelled at break-ins to expensive hotels and using her uber powers she was quite adept at melting room safes and making off with valuables.  She was active between the west coast and Chicago, and worked in both Canada and the United States.  She crossed swords with the super hero team Tribune in Vancouver, as well as Canadian Shield, but was never considered a serious threat.

Her criminal career came to an end when she attempted to burgle the hotel suite of Prince Albert II of Monaco.  She cracked the safe but never made it out of the hotel.  Instead, she was startled by the Prince and invited to an intimate dinner in the room which she agreed to.  They spent hours talking over champagne and when the sun rose Susan explained that she had to leave.  The Prince asked to see her again, but she didn't take him seriously.  She agreed to see him again the next night in the same place, but had no plans to do so.

The Prince took her at her word and set up a beautiful dinner.  Susan's curiosity got the better of her and she watched the Prince's suite from across the street in another high rise hotel.  Her heart stirred as she watched the Prince wait for her.  There was no security, no police trap.  It was just the Prince and he was waiting for her.  Susan stayed in her secret room for hours and never once did the Prince give up hope of her return.

She was touched.

But she knew it couldn't be possible for the two of them to continue such a relationship.

Susan had plans to leave Chicago the next day but something about watching the Prince patiently wait for her, made her change her mind.  She snuck into the hotel the following night, as she had two nights before.  When she slipped inside she found that the Prince was gone.  Her heart sank immediately.  She walked slowly through the suite and touched his belongings: those small things he had brought from Monaco to make his stay more comfortable.  She didn't know much about him, apart from the tabloids which reported on his many social forays and many allegations of paternity.  His father, Prince Rainier had recently died which made Albert the ruling monarch.  He was unattached.  Susan opened the wardrobe and looked at his immaculate suits.

And then the door opened.  Security men walked in and then the Prince.  Susan slipped into the wardrobe and closed it behind her.  The security detachment swept through the suite and then retreated to another room.  Susan watched as the Prince walked through the room passed her hiding spot.

He looked tired.

She opened the door and stepped out.

'You look like you could do with a back rub," she said softly.

He turned, and to his credit, he did not appear startled.  Susan smiled.  He looked relieved to see her.

"Ah," he said.  "My intruder."

Two years later, in 2007, the two were married in Monaco, and Susan Barras became Princess Susan of Monaco.  Any outstanding warrants for her arrest have been dealt with and she lives a high profile life in Europe, only returning to America and Canada with her husband.  She has given up her uber-thief career and has given birth to twin children: Rainier and Charlotte.

 

Personality

Princess Susan is a confident woman but knows that she is now a part of a proud and important tradition.  She is gracious and defers to Prince Albert, especially in public.  Her life is focussed on children's charities and the lives of her young children, Rainier and Charlotte.  Although she is the wife and consort of the ruling monarch of Monaca, she has friendly relations with Albert's two acknowledged former lovers and their illegitimate children, Alexandre Coste (born in 2003 to a Togo woman) and Jazmin Grimaldi (born in 1992, Palm Springs).  Susan's children are the heirs to the throne as no illegitimate children will be considered in issues of succession.

Since becoming the Princess, Susan has vowed never to use her uberhuman abilities and has so far been true to her word.  She has managed to oppose two members of the International House of Crime when they attempted to steal valuable paintings from the Princess' residence showing that she is capable of looking after herself and her loved ones.  The International House of Crime has marked Susan as an important target so members of the organisation are encouraged to attempt robberies against the Royal Family of Monaco.

 

Quote

"Every day has the potential to change the world.  One day we may live the life we always thought was ours, but the next may see a whole new life whether we are expecting it or not.  There are people around the world, children around the world, who must deal with these changes every day and unlike my own life of fortune, these children are not living in fairy tales with happy endings."

 

Powers

The Silver Phantom was famous for her dazzling entries and exits from expensive hotels across the northern United States and Canada.  She still retains her powers but refuses to use them.  She had the ability to generate light in bursts as well as focussed bolts of energy.  She was always in top physical condition as the Silver Phantom and was an evasive martial artist and acrobat.  Since becoming Princess Susan she has allowed her training to slip away as she no longer feels the necessity of daily training.  Nonetheless, Susan is still capable of defending herself and is very resourceful.

 

Appearance

Princess Susan is in her late thirties.  She has silver-blonde hair which is cut in a bobbed fashion, and has a bubble-like nose which makes her seem younger than she actually is.  As the consort of a monarch, she has access to high fashion and she has become the sponsor for a series of fashion designers in Paris and Monte Carlo.  While she is frequently photographed by the paparazzi, Susan always appears dignified and composed.  She prefers to wear simple designs and does not wear too much jewellery, except on official occasions.

As the Silver Phantom, Susan was famous for her silver catsuit with black domino mask.  Her hair was a fuller blonde back then and her figure was more lithe with the element of mischief and danger.  Incidentally, Susan still has the catsuit.
