Real Name: Francis “Frankie” Dane
Height: 5’4”
Weight: 135 lbs
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Brown


Complications:
Her Name Says It All: Bipolar is an alternate personality created by the influence of Frankie’s magnetic powers. On occasion, her true personality can exert itself, particularly if her powers are temporarily weakened or nullified.

Greed: Bipolar is motivated by a desire to have everything Frankie was ever denied in life, and more.

Temper: Bipolar has a fierce temper, particularly when defied or denied something she wants.


Background: Frankie Dane’s family never had much, and Frankie was forced to make do with what her parents were able to provide; she didn’t have the latest fashions, or the most up-to-date cell phone, or even her own car, but she did learn the importance of hard work. She applied herself to become a straight A student in high school, then worked on earning several scholarships which allowed her to study information technologies. Frankie worked hard enough in college to graduate with honors, then pounded the pavement relentlessly to get an internship and later a job at Oddessy Technologies. Along the way, she passed up the college parties, and the relationships that would have distracted her from her goals; she was on the road to success.

Then Black Sun attacked Oddessy and the lab where Frankie was working in was among the ones heavily damaged, leaving her buried under rubble. The trauma of that event triggered the manifestation of her Transhuman abilities. In that instant she could feel the magnetic fields of the Earth, the flux created by masses of metal, the radio emissions from devices throughout the city... and her mind screamed under the crushing weight of their signals. From deep within her, the feelings Frankie had always buried, feelings that she was barely even aware of, erupted to the surface. How she had denied herself for so very long, and for what? An apartment she could barely afford? Working harder than ever for middle management that couldn’t appreciate her skills and saw her as just a pretty face? She didn’t have to put up with that; she had power and she could whatever she wanted now. Modest and sweet Frankie Dane was gone and was replaced with Bipolar!

Weeks later Frankie woke up to find herself in a prison cell wearing power dampening restraints and very confused. When told, or rather shown video footage, of the various crimes she committed, she was horrified and embarrassed beyond all measure and refused to see her family when they came to visit her. While doctors from Oddessy Technologies said it wasn’t her fault, that her powers altered her brain; this allowed Frankie’s lawyer to enter a plea of innocent due to mental defect, but it didn’t make much difference: Frankie would still be put away because she was a danger to society. So, when a malfunction happened to her power nullifying restraints, Frankie was secretly glad to relinquish control to the power that surged up from inside her.

She couldn’t cope any longer, but Bipolar could handle anything.

Wow, Bipolar is really cool! Sympathetic and powerful, yet ultimately tragic.
