Background

Yolanda gained her powers during Apocalypto's attack on Mexico City which she was covering for a Zapotec radio programme.  She and her sound recordist were caught in the line of a falling skyscraper and would have been killed if not for the timely intervention of Esperanca and the rest of the Southern Knights.  Instead, Yolanda was given a short reprieve during which she began to move faster and faster, as if she was stuck on fast-forward.  Her co-worker watched in awe as Yolanda started to spin out of control, her form lost in a whirlwind of activity.  She sped towards a building but turned at the last second and spun away out of view.

It took a long time to get control of her spinning but Yolanda never did give up on things.  She found that travelling at high speeds as a kind of red twister provided her with protection from running into walls and cars, and she never seemed to tire.  When her body stopped spinning, Yolanda found herself on the outskirts of the sprawling metropolis of Mexico City.  She watched Apocalypso lashing out at the city and the assembled heroes, but she could do nothing.

Months passed and her powers never returned.

She continued to work at the radio station and began to report more and more on the uberhumans of Mexico, particularly focussing on the emerging super hero team known as Defensa Suprema.  She even managed to get the outspoken Nautili woman, Night Wind, on the programme.

Her powers returned on the night Huitzilopachtli arrived in town.  He planned to make the world over in his own image and to draw more power to him by destroying key parts of the city.  Yolanda was one of twelve women he summoned to a high-rise hotel.  On the roof he had established a temple and Yolanda and the other women were to be sacrificed at dawn.  Yolanda was in a trance, but when Cactus was dropped on the roof by Ana Cascabel and her Suprema plane, the mesmerism was broken.

The other women were powerless as Cactus struggled with the god, but Yolanda's powers burst into life with a vengeance.  She blurred into a red twister and slammed into Huitzilopachtli sending him over the edge.  While it allowed the god to regain his power and disentangled him from Cactus, it also sparked the beginning of the major campaign against him.  Defensa Suprema were ready and attacked him in the streets below.  Yolanda joined in, and although she showed her inexperience she also showed her fiery spirit.

When the god was routed, Yolanda was asked to join the team as a trainee member.  She agreed and worked hard to make full membership.

Her super hero career is important to her, but she has so far refused to give up her secret identity and her job at the radio station.  She has interviewed other members of the team since joining, which has been awkward for some of the more public members of the team who believe being a hero is about being forthright and honest about everything.  Yolanda doesn't worry too much.  She enjoys both of her lives.

In fact she enjoys her lives so much that complications from one life often encroach upon the other, mostly in the area of romances - which are almost always passionate and fiery and end up with a jilted boyfriend and a new beau.  She makes a point of only going out with one person per identity, and she never reveals the truth to them on principle.

 

Personality

Yolanda is a bit of a vamp, placing importance on first appearances and physical contact.  She never holds back and is easily distracted unless she is the centre of attention: personality traits which have made her a very popular and talkative radio host.  Yolanda is an optimist with an unshakable sense of humour, always able to see the fun in something or some situation.  She often plays practical jokes with Vengador and has progressively become more and more of a party animal in both of her identities.

Yolanda has taken the name Furia Solitaria, which means 'lone fury'.  While she has come to like the name, she really chose it as a joke, playing up to the idea of American super heroes who take themselves too seriously.  She is such a bright light that she tends to look upon dark and angst-ridden vigilantes as a waste of time.  Most people simply shorten her hero name to Furia.

 

Quote

"Trust me, darling, if you spin around fast enough anyone can be a super hero."

 

Powers

Furia Solitaria is able to spin an incredibly fast speeds and to move along a surface as a kind of red twister.  While spinning she is virtually impossible to harm and can move at blurring speeds.  As well as being highly agile and quick moving, Furia is also tireless.  She has been known to move continuously for two days and only stopped because she was distracted by a song which had become stuck in her head.  She didn't know the artist and had to stop in order to find out who it was.  She doesn't have the desire to test her reserves again, but suffice to say that she can continue moving for a long, long time.

Furia also wears a custom-made bodysuit which is composed of a kevlar-style armour.

 

Appearance

A blur of red is all people really see of Furia Solitaria when she is in full swing.  Her body blurs to such an extent that she becomes almost like a sentient whirlwind.  When she is standing still, or moving at a normal pace, she reveals a dark skinned woman with a prominent beauty mark on her left cheek, curly permed brown hair and hoped gold ear rings.  She wears a white bodysuit with red lining and red gloves and boots.  To conceal her identity she moves fast and avoids cameras, but also wears red shades which look impressive but are actually just for decoration (and disguise).  She picked them up at a junk shop and has become attached to them.

Out of costume, Yolanda avoids wearing red to keep her two identities separate.  She will usually wear jeans and shirts, although she has a large collection of t-shirts with slogans from the brilliant to the crude.  To help conceal her hero identity she usually wears hats and shuns the public as much as she can during daylight hours.  As a radio presenter she can get away with wearing baggy clothes and looking a little under the weather some mornings.  The important thing is that her inquisitive and bright voice is irrepressible.
