Name: Corinthia Violet Lancaster
Power(s): Increased hearing sensitivity to the point where she can accurately pinpoint the location and pitch of any sound (this makes choosing proper headphones a pain and transcribing a breeze) and notice even minute differences between sounds. She can also, with her near-perfect audio memory and flexible vocal chords, very accurately replicate any sound she hears.
Appearance: Round face. Doesn't wear makeup except on special occasions. Straight dark brown hair, shoulder length; short bangs, parted on her left. Light but not pale skin. Stands about 5'5" and weights about one hundred eighteen pounds. Turquoise eyes. Wide smile. Generally dressed in jeans, a shirt, a black jacket, and sneakers; wears a scarf in low temperatures; garb (apart from denim-blue jeans) is generally in blacks and whites.
Skills: Stays athletic by running track. Plays soccer on a casual basis. Decent chef.
Personality: Withdrawn around strangers but talkative with friends. Honest, polite, all in all a very nice girl to know. Subdued sense of humor. Very into music, mainly indie, acoustic, and classical genres (think artists like Death Cab for Cutie, Silversun Pickups, Radiohead, The Postal Service, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart). Likes Starbucks. A bit of a bookworm. Likes the arts in general, though she's only a decent pencil artist and has only written several simple songs and fewer short stories. Big fan of Joss Whedon's TV show Firefly.
Weakness: Loud noises affect Corinthia more than other humans due to her sensitive eardrums (partially why she prefers laid-back music). While athletic, she has little to no fighting experience.
Bio: Corinthia (sometimes called "Corin" for short) was born and still lives in Alameda, California. As a child, she was raised Catholic, went to a Catholic private school, and learned how to play piano and viola. When she became a teenager, she switched to public high school and became more agnostic, though she remains on very good terms with her parents. She took up acoustic guitar and became more interested in music. She's studious, and that, coupled with her apparent introversion, leave her generally unnoticed in school. Corin has little idea that her hearing and vocal abilities are beyond any normal human's.
