BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION


Here is a tale of agony and anguish, a young girl being taken from her family in the name of science. The pretty Zora Esmee Van Rossem. She was born in the city of Camden, in Delaware, to her parents Esmee and Isaac Van Rossem. She was their only child so naturally she was a little bit spoiled but not overly like most kids without any siblings. An average young girl she was, who loved to play and sing as well as read whatever she could get her hands on, a bookworm with a lovely voice you could say. She was a friendly and out-going young lady, a quite intelligent little girl. That is, until she was kidnapped on her way home from school one day when she was 17. They blindfolded her so that she was unaware of where she was being taken, afraid, alone, wanting to be home, she was taken to a secret underground HYDRA laboratory facility in Dover and stuck into a cold windowless cell. Little did she know the scientists as they were called were going to mess with her DNA and her mind, experiment on her in an effort to create a super soldier formula they could sell to the military so they could be on an even playing field with the powered super humans that SHIELD had, the Avengers. The experiments were genetic, in nature as well as mental, what they would do to her however, was a different story. They thought splicing her DNA would be the key, splicing it with feline DNA, canadian lynx to be specific because of the specific stealth and hunting capabilities of that feline. Over the course of 10 years they rewrote her DNA, made her.....something else.

She was still mostly human, but with lynx DNA mixed with hers, it enhanced her sight allowing her to see even the slightest detail up to a quarter mile away as well as night vision, however extremely bright lights can blind her temporarily and the longer she is exposed to said extremely bright lights the longer the blindness lasts. Her hearing was enhanced which allows her to hear a pin drop from a quarter mile away and isolate sounds when she concentrates but too many high pitched sounds make that difficult. Her strength was enhanced which allows her to lift up to 500lbs, though anything heavier than that can crush her. Her reflexes are twice as fast as a normal human however she can't catch bullets or anything as fast as a bullet. Her sense of smell is that of a cat, able to smell even the slightest odor, too many strong odors though irritates her. Also, due to the lynx DNA written into her own, she can become extremely violent and hostile when threatened, also due to her enhanced hearing she is highly sensitive to supersonic sounds which can make her deaf temporarily, and as with her vision, the longer she is exposed to supersonic sounds the longer the deafness lasts. They also messed with her mind, brainwashed her so that she wouldn't remember who she was or where she came from, or even that she had a family. They wiped her mind so that she would have no memory of her life, that way she would be the perfect killer, under their control. A feline assassin to do their bidding, for they wanted to make her a stealth assassin in addition their Winter Soldier. Once the experiments were complete they had her trained in combat, with weapons as well as hand to hand combat, they trained her to kill.

After 10 years she more or less still looks human, save for the claw like nails, and elongated canines. Everything was going according to plan, it was all so perfect. However in a matter of moments everything went awry when something very unexpected happened. During one of the other experiments, one subject, a very large man/experiment built like a tank went berserk and killed all the scientists, a shock to all the captive experiments including her, especially when their cages suddenly sprang open. Unsure of what to do Zora, or Subject 225 as they called her, she looked out of her cell, unsure of what to do. Across the room another subject had taken one of the scientists and ripped into him, the action however, caused a flash of memory to occur, in which she saw a little boy rip into a doll in a house she did not know but it was in her memories. A memory not from this place, but from another, one which shook her and actually made her think. What was that? Whatever it was, if it was real, that meant everything was a lie, and with that realization she seized an opportunity to get out. Upon her escape however she realized that she had nowhere to go because the only thing she knew was the facility, she couldn't remember anything else except for that fragment of the boy tearing a doll, not her family or where she came from, the only fragment she seemed to remember was her name and the boy. Just her name and the boy. In realizing this she fled the city she was in and ran far far away from that place. Lost and alone she knew that she had to leave this place, for she couldn't go back to that place, not if the scientists weren't all dead, and she didn't know any of the other subjects so she decided to get the heck away from there. If any of them did survive she had to get away, and the airport was the way out, now without any money or a passport, she snuck onto a plane bound for New York and stowed away in the cargo bay.

When she arrived in New York, the place in which the plane had landed, she immediately left the confines of the cargo bay. New York was so different, different than the facility she had lived in for 10 years. Once she was safely away from the airport, away from the crowds of people that congregated and moved through in, she wandered the alleys wearing nothing more than black gloves, boots and a black jumpsuit. She could speak, but she had no skills to speak of due to the brainwashing except hunting and killing. She spent the next three months wandering, foraging for food and shelter because she had no home and no jobs skills. Though one night she found a wooden crate big enough for her to fit into in an alley which seemed to be free so she claimed it as a temporary home. For days she'd sit in that crate, whilst she did so, strange sounds would often emanate from the building next to her crate. These strange sounds she would learn, were called music, songs. The more she listened to them the more she liked them, and began trying to sing. At first she sounded horrible, but after a while she sounded better and better the more she practiced and sang. One day while she was wandering the streets she saw a sign in a window that said help(she was brainwashed yes but she could still read.). Curious about the sign she entered the building and asked about the sign. Turns out the building she walked into was a club that need a singer or two for their night entertainment. It wasn't hard for her to gather that in order to get things you had to pay for them and in order to pay for things you had to earn money. Now she being an escapee she didn't have any papers or ID or anything like that. Normally the manager wouldn't take people without documentation, but after hearing her sing, he hired her on the spot and she became one of the two main singers. This job gave her the means to get by and eventually earn enough to get a bicycle and new clothes, but she still couldn't get a place to live. But once her boss found out she was living in the alley, to her surprise he helped her get an apartment, something he never did for employees. He didn't tell her why, perhaps he felt sorry for her or something. Who knows, either way, with a place to live and transportation, she was settled enough to register for the proper identification that way she wouldn't have anymore problems.

From the news she saw it was apparent that a lot had transpired while she was a captive in that place. It seemed that those heros with abilities had messed things up because now with what they called the Sokovia Accords, all powered people had to register and be known. She however, did no such thing because she hid what she was very carefully, for she would not risk being exposed and subjected to that….barbaric registration. Hidden she remains, passing as human she stays. No one must know. No one.

Zora is a somewhat shy young woman that doesn't really socialize outside of work. Due to her 'differences' she mostly keeps to herself, preferring not to risk exposure with the Accords in effect and government agencies enforcing them. She is a singer at an upscale club in the city of Manhattan, and aside from buying food she keeps to herself. Sure she'll exchange pleasantries while at work but that's about it.
platonic


Zora really doesn't have any friends, not really. She's a bit shy and mostly keeps to herself, more so to prevent the accidental slip of what those monsters made her into of which she is very self conscious of. But that's not to say she can't make friends, you'd just need to get past her barriers and get her to trust again.
antagonistic


There's not much that gets on her nerves, besides crazy stalker fans from the club she sings at. She hates bullies and murders, thugs and crooks, and most of all she hates the government scientists that turned her into the monster, the freak that she is today. At least that’s what she thinks she is. However do not make her angry, whatever you do, do not piss her off, or the monster will come out.
romantic


Zora doesn't have any of these either due to fact that she was kidnapped and how long she was in captivity. However that doesn't mean she won't have any in the future. Of course you'd have to become her friend first and get past her barriers and get her to trust you which is not an easy thing to do, but it's not impossible.
