Background

Georgia's separation from the Soviet Union was not a pretty sight, and Gurandukht's experiences of the bloody reprisals of 1989 led to her lifelong code of helping combat oppression in all its forms. While she was only twelve at the time, by 1995 when the civil war which raged through the country was coming to a major confrontation, it was Gurandukht who appeared in war-torn T'bilisi and demanded the warring factions either bury their dispute or face her in an open battle.

A year before she had discovered her uber abilities when she survived a train derailment which killed her parents. She walked away from the tragedy and devoted her life to the public good, ending any future for the Tabidze family. She has never gone back on her decision to abandon her family and hopes of settling down and raising a family, in exchange for becoming an icon for the people.

In 1995 she faced down the warring factions and throttled them into submission, the result of which was a tenuous treaty and a coalition government. She called herself Coda, the end to the war. She remained in Georgia for two years before heading to the United States and joining the Sentinels in 1998. Coda has been a member on and off ever since. While she is not as powerful as some members of the world-spanning team, she has consistently shown compassion on a grand scale, as well as a level head which has assisted the team through some very precarious times.

 

Personality

Coda has long since abandoned hope of a personal life. She lives in her public ID and spends most of her time actively in the public arena, helping those who require assistance, and speaking up for those who cannot. Gurandukht consistently puts herself before others, almost to a point of recklessness; although she abhors violence unless it is the last resort. As a woman who can lift in excess of 25 tons and punch holes through concrete, she is very restrained even in combat situations.

 

Quote

"Khval minda."

(I want tomorrow... you can have yesterday.)

 

Powers

Coda possesses uberhuman strength and near invulnerability, but her most impressive ability is to penetrate barriers and opponent's defences. She is known locally as 'the Sentinel express train' in the New York media because of this ability to simply crash through obstacles; but Gurandukht doesn't like the moniker and prefers to keep humour out of her repertoire. To her, the super hero business is very important, and not a laughing matter.

 

Appearance

Coda is an impressive woman standing over six feet tall and commanding the respect of people before her. She has short, thick blonde hair and arching eyebrows which gives her an aristocratic air, although she has no interest in pursuing politics or public fame. Her costume has always been the same: silver-plated scale armour in an Eastern design, with the Georgian flag emblazoned on shoulder guards. She wears a simple black bodysuit under the armour and wears bright red knee-high boots and a red sash around her waist.
