Background

Li Meizhu found herself hunted by the Chinese Government when she was twenty-two. For years she had successfully operated her own burglary business, personally stealing archaeological artefacts from digs across China, and selling them on to contacts in Europe and North America. She extended into other areas as well, such as gold, jewellery and even hard cash. Her skills were unparalleled, mostly because she was actually an uber with the ability to mimic the abilities of other ubers, as well as a formidable telepath in her own right.

She didn't count on her cousin, though. Shang Lo Yet worked for the government as part of a sanctioned uberhuman team of enforcers. The Immortals were relentless in their pursuit of perceived threats to the State and when Lo Yet discovered Meizhu's ability to mimic uber abilities, which was much like his own, he effectively unleashed the hounds.

Meizhu fled to New York City where she slipped into anonymity and took on the role of a graphic designer, Maisy Lee. Her mild form of kleptomania couldn't be suppressed, however, and she returned to form when a travelling Ancient Egyptian exhibit arrived in New York. She slipped into the museum and stole priceless artefacts, escaping without setting off alarms. When she came to sell the loot, however, she found that she needed to expand her contacts, as those she knew wouldn't touch the artefacts because they had been stolen from the States.

Maisy developed a plan. She would gather together the world's finest thieves, uberhumans in particular, and form an elite club from which benefits and responsibilities would be established for members. Stolen property could be fenced through a range of sources, as each member would represent a different continent, and they would stand by and offer sanctuary for any member in peril.

She termed it The International House Of Crime, inspired by the idea of a fashion house but catering for criminals of exquisite taste.

As the House's reputation grew, membership shifted, and Maisy decided that a new member could only be admitted upon the death or dismissal of a previous member. The first such case was of Pennyroyal, a British thief who was dispatched by Shamrock, an irate ex-IRA operative. When Shamrock heard that the House existed, and that she had terminated one of its members, she accepted the invitation to join.

At present, Maisy is still head of the House, although she wonders whether a leadership challenge is on the cards.

Personality

Queen Bee is exotic and flighty, presenting herself as a fashion-obsessive celebrity, when in reality she is a calculating thief par excellence. She manages the International House Of Crime as a way of helping herself, but is proud of its membership and will go out of her way to protect its reputation, and, if necessary, its members.

She is fearless, except when it comes to the Gang Of Five, especially her cousin. Shang Lo Yet, known to those in high places as The Mask Of The Revolution, is a merciless hunter. Normally, Queen Bee rubs heroes up the wrong way, but doesn't usually cause deep seated hatred. The Gang Of Five is different. They want her neutralised, and that means dead. Potentially, she has the ability to threaten their secret agenda, and even though Maisy is unaware of this, it is enough to warrant her death.

Quote

“You really don’t think shaking that light pole and beating your chest is going to impress me, do you?”

Powers

The ultimate ‘ace in the hole’, Queen Bee is one of the most powerful telepaths on the planet. She has the ability to dominate other minds, communicate telepathically, and even create virtual realities in the minds of others. Her most striking ability, however, is to adapt her own ubergene to mimic the abilities of others. After making telepathic contact with an uber, Queen Bee is able to briefly manifest those powers as if they were her own.

Appearance

Queen Bee is a self-confessed fashion junky. Her horn-rimmed spectacles and mini skirts are famous amongst uberhuman circles. She is cheeky and defiant, and dresses accordingly, utilising her sex appeal and bravado to give herself any advantage. Her current costume involves a free-flowing yellow mini-skirt and halter top, with long black boots and a bumblebee clip in her hair. She also wears a temporary bumblebee tattoo on her right shoulder.
