As the moonlight pierces through the barred window of the asylum we see a young girl lost in thoughts rocking back and forth in the corner. Her eyes momentarily closed, now open to reveal a white emptiness that glows in the darkened padded cell. For it was on this night that her true powers would come to surface and this cruel fate would be her own. Let's turn back the hands of time to earlier this day and see how such a terrible fate could be bestowed upon a child.
A young girl sits in her room playfully moving dolls along her bed lost in her own fantasy world of imagination. Suddenly, a wrapping at the front door and a shriek is heard. The girl knows this won't be well; then again she's clever enough to realize this isn't out of the ordinary either. Her mother had gotten a divorce several months ago because her husband was getting aggressive with her. Weekly occurrences of her father "dropping by" would never end well, normally with a trip to the hospital or a lengthy talk with police. This night however is where it crossed the line, as her father quickly bore into her room in fervor. Blood trickled from his face and onto the carpet by the door, a sick look in his eye. He quickly came to the girl and took the doll from her hand and sat down on her bed.
"Molly, I don't expect you to understand why I've always done the things I've done, but the only thing I ever wanted was your love."
These words meant nothing to Molly after those soulless terrible years. Years of physical and sexual abuse by her father were enough to crack even the most willpower-stricken psyches. Molly stood up and started to head for the door, fearing the worst for her mother. Her father had other plans and grabbed her by the leg and tossed her onto the bed. He raised a hand high and smacked her across the face leaving a large bruise below her eye. As her father jumped on top of the bed Molly turned and looked outside at the window. Seeing some sort of reflection through the glass, but not of herself. Some sort of bewildering creature with fierce white smoky eyes starred back. In a blast of smoke and darkness Molly transformed into a magnificent beast, finally free from her mind and in physical form. An eight foot high rabbit creature with long stiletto boots with spikes and a pointy wizard like hat. Her father figuring he was still drunk just swung at the creature with his fist babbling to himself. The creature burst forth massive blades from its arms and sliced the man nearly in two as blood cascaded her fur.
"Never again shall we let you be harmed, such innocence shall never suffer another day."
Molly awoke moments later in the back of an ambulance, both her parents now dead, one by her own hands. She broke down began crying and shouting about the creature she'd become. She tried to flee the ambulance and seeing her reflection in the back window as a creature started thrashing wildly. The paramedics subdued her and she was taken to the psychiatric wing. The doctors dismissed her wild notions of these creatures and how somehow she was this beast she claimed. With her sanity in question the police came to the conclusion that she had committed the murder of her parents and was unstable with paranoid delusions and schizophrenia. They took her to Rhode Island Psychiatric Care Facility where she would remain for 3 years. Three long years fearing what she would become, wildly without her knowing if she'd transform again and what she would do. She rocked back and forth with that glow in her eyes, never knowing what might come next.
After much counseling at the Facility and a new mentor in a psychic named Numina, they were able to determine her illness was not simply a state of mental illness, but an unlocking of extraordinary abilities. This came at a price however, because of such intense trauma as a child her brain began to develop personalities that she would hide into and talk to, her friends and family if you will. These personalities grew to take on traits of her feelings, sadness, anger, happiness, confusion, and so on. These emotions took physical form as magnificent creatures, crazy animal beings, and twisted visions of an imagination gone wild. As Numina took her into training and allowing her the full witness of her powers, trying to control when her emotions would get too high, but every time she would revert back to herself, she had no memory of what her personalities would do. With her signed permission Numina gave her free reign back into the world and invited her along to Paragon City where she could also watch over the girl. Where in a world where so much hate and abuse goes on, that a girl that had lived through it even if it nearly destroyed her mind and body, this girl could help fight for those like she once was.
