[SuperSunday] Vegana, El vegan bendita!

Super Sunday was an idea I came up with to act as a creative outlet for my character ideas. Over this past month, I have decided to try to emulate some of my favorite elements of people I know and putting them in character format.

My wife, a woman who has helped me to be the Vegan I am today, helped to inspire me to put together the character you will soon come to know as, Vegana, the Blessed Vegan!


Vegan/Vegetarian Symbol
The symbol many people have come to associate with Vegans/Vegetarians.


Vegana, el vegan bendita!

Real Name: Estrella Rosa Florez
Occupation: Esoteric Herbalist and Dietary Specialist
Base: Freedom City

Personality

Vegana is a very youthful and pleasant woman who isn't afraid to share her thoughts on one's personal health. Her sincerity makes it very difficult for many people to get angry at her, and there are many times when she uses this to her advantage if things aren't going her way.

Although very diplomatic, Vegana's is of an adventurous and curious sort, and as such she knows that many times some tongue and cheek and fast talking can get her anywhere.

When it comes down to it, Vegana has absolutely no patience for anyone who abuses the gift of the earth, putting her at ends with many Business and Religious Orginizations.

Powers and Abilities

Vegana's abilities stem from a Forbiden Fruit that she consumed in her youth. Intended as a curse, her selfless essence has provided her the ability to increase her mass dramatically, move at amazing speeds, and give her superior vitality and strength capable of handling tank blasts with little effort and lifting massive vehicles.

When it comes to her devotion to the Vegan lifestyle, she has also been blessed with a moderate level of regeneration and immunity to starvation, thirst, poison, disease, and aging.

Due to her strength and devotion to a selfless Vegan lifestyle, she has acquired the ability to shatter anything that she applies enough strength to, and extremely healthy lungs capable of utilizing strong breaths of air in order to move large groups of people around with a single breath.

Though, despite this fact, the forbidden fruit has "cursed" her with immortality, keeping her relatively trapped in her early twenties despite having lived since the late 1700's.


History

Vegana, the daughter of a trafficker of young children, women, and drugs, was a very pleasant girl who seemed to not have a worry in the world. Her father saw her as his sacred gift, doing his best to hide her, though often times surprised and angered by her curiosity and ability to get into places she didn't belong.

At the age of 12, Vegana had been given a fruit by a poor woman in a crowded marketplace in Guadalajara, Mexico. The fruit itself was intended to curse her father, though Vegana could not resist a delicious looking fruit, and given the beauty behind the fruit itself she paid the woman with an amount that would have easily angered her father. Though instead of killing her, the fruit seemed to have no effect.

At the age of 19, when Vegana discovered her father's double life as a crime lord during one of her curios adventures, she attempted stopping the "hand off" and quickly came under fire despite her father calling a cease fire. The bullets had no affect, quickly causing the situation to escalate.

Many of the children and women were threatened to be killed if she did not back down, and angered by this, Vegana then discovered the full potential of her powers, quickly picking up her fathers limo and creating a wall between the men with guns and those they were threatening.

Taunting the men to surrender, many of them retreated and her father quickly disappeared  taking with him all the monetary wealth she had grown accustomed to. This didn't seem to top her, and instead she set it upon herself to fight for the preservation of all life, and hopefully find her father and put an end to his ways.

Now some two hundred years later, Vegana had found her father's gang had killed him due to his refusal to try to stop his own daughter. She has recently found herself among Freedom City in the hopes of putting an end to the problem at it's source by confronting the Crime League directly.


Using Vegana as a Villain (Glutona)

Glutona was a much more bitter woman in her youth, taking everything she could from her father and trapping and guilting him into anything she wanted. When a fruit was given to her father she demanded she have it, and once consumed, she quickly discovered that her hunger and desire for things were never fulfilled, causing her to live a life of undless hunger and the curse of immortality to back it.

Now, Glutona seeks to consume are take anything she can get her hands on that remotely comes close to sasiating her, and destroying anything in her path to get to it. Once she has consumed enough, she tends to go into a long hibernation before her hunger gets too much for her to take any more which typically happens once every 12 years, the age that she was when she first ate the cursed fruit.
