Background

In September 1994 two volcanoes erupted almost simultaneously in the mountains of Papua New Guinea. Kala Taranupi was a member of an expedition in the area and only survived through the reactive manifestation of her sound and light powers. Her fellow university students were not so lucky, and when she returned to her university she was treated as a jinx and avoided. She came to resent the pettiness of fellow students and the faculty, and it was during this time that she began to slide down the slippery slope of moral decay.

Kala manipulated her way into a career, utilising her metahuman powers of persuasion to climb the ladder of success. In Australia, she began to branch out into the criminal underworld, offering her services for money and, more importantly, power. She clashed with the Southern Knights on several occasions and made a reputation for herself as cool, calculating and possessing a devilish charm and a knack for escaping even the most hardened of prisons.

After a clash with Outback, something came unhinged in Paradise's mind. She lost her moral compass and went completely bananas, unleashing her powers at whim with no regard to consequences or logic. She has become a powerful and unpredictable villain, plaguing both the United States and Australia.

Personality

Paradise is insane. She does not make sense, and acts on whims or a weird sense of strategy. She can become obsessed with people or objects, and makes her way through life in pursuit of these two interchanging goals. She has acted heroically at times, but is also capable of the most heinous crimes. Strangely, she does not want to kill Outback for driving her insane. She actually sees it as a blessing, and goes out of her way to thank him whenever she is terrorising Australia.

Quote

“Hey little birdie, you wanna live in a golden cage?”

Powers

Paradise is able to manipulate the sound and light in her immediate vicinity. She can harness the energies to create powerful blasts of light, sound and deadly lasers; intense flashes of both sound and light; as well as generate life-like illusions. Her voice can resonate at a level which induces a form of mind control, a power she uses to get what she wants.

Appearance

Kala is a tall, dark-skinned woman, who is stunningly beautiful. She always wears brightly coloured clothes and accessories, and commands any audience equally with her steely intellect and her beauty (or, alternatively, with her utter madness). In costume, she wears a bright pink wig which is outrageous, but serves to distract people from her secret identity.
