APPEARANCE AND PERSONALITY
Tall, lean, and made of muscle, Elena is quite an appealing young woman. Her features stand out with dark, full lips and large eyes that are usually painted with vibrant reds, violets, and even deep blues; though that's to say nothing about the absolutely brilliant head of white hair she keeps styled in an enormous afro atop her head. It's clear she puts a lot of effort into her appearance. She wants to stand out, wants to be unique...yet, not too unique, as she hides the only part of her that looks distinctly inhuman: her left eye, which glows and flickers like blue flame.
Like that eye, when she manifests her Quirk, Elena becomes a being entirely made of blue fire, burning brightly and brilliantly, her features and figure completely engulfed in flame. In this form it is neigh impossible to recognize Elena at all.
For the most part her fashion sense is as bold as the rest of her appearance; bright, punk-rock style clothes chosen specifically to match with her choice of jewelry, make-up, and heels that give her already impressive height an even higher reach. She stands out on the street, be it for her hair, her fashion, or simply her stature.
POSITIVE ✔ Independent, Brave, Energetic, Cheerful NEGATIVE ✖ Naive, Impatient, Reactive, Bullheaded LIKES ✔ Games of Any Sort, Jewelry, Bad Jokes, Jogging, Uniqueness DISLIKES ✖ Rain, Feeling Inadequate, Silence, Vermin (Bugs, Rodents, Etc.), Cruelty
Elena is something of a mess at this current point in time, emotionally speaking. While she puts a lot of work into maintaining her looks and physical health, she doesn't spare very much time to process her own feelings or consider her well-being.
She's incredibly impatient and cannot sit still for too long without anything to do. Thankfully, "anything to do" can be even small things, such as playing with her phone or a hand-held game system, talking with another person, or listening to music. However take away her little distractions and Elena becomes more than a bit snappy and irate, and will bite the head off of anyone who demands she sit down and sit still for too long. She rushes into danger, too, without any care for herself. Be it something like running through traffic when the light is red to catch a purse-snatcher, or even something small like jumping from one balcony to another instead of using the hallway; Elena is not a rational woman when there's something she wants to do. The quickest route, even if not the safest or smartest, is hers to take.
Past her impatience and lack of better judgment, though, there is a somewhat naive person that sees the world with too much contrast. Evil is evil and good is good, with very little room for in-between. However that only applies to hew own views. Elena burning a thief's hand with her quirk is good, despite it breaking the law, because the thief was stealing from somebody, which is bad. Heroes who save civilians at the cost of a villain escaping are fine, but the best heroes would have stopped the villain at whatever the cost. It's this mindset that keeps Elena from trying to become a legitimate hero; why bother doing what's "good" when she's doing what's "best" for everyone? Despite this, though, Elena would never kill another. She would burn them bad enough to incapacitate, if she had to, but murder is evil.
Elena was born in northern Spain, deep in the heart of a bustling city. Her mother and father were both Quirkless, but not against the Quirker movement. While they were both what many would consider "quiet, respectable people", Elena was more than a handful, and would oftentimes cause trouble at school for her mother or father to have to deal with. She got sent home with notices quite a lot. Still, her parents loved her, and she loved them as much as a child who was always in trouble could. Things shifted, however, when in the spring of her seventh year her arm suddenly burst into bright blue flame. Her teacher did the only reasonable thing and doused her with the fire extinguisher, and after passing out, Elena woke up in the hospital with her terrified parents demanding answers from the doctor.
Elena's Quirk was identified as the ability to transform herself, or parts of herself, into pure flame. Since she was young this could not always be controlled well. Sometimes she would sneeze and her legs from the knee-down would turn into fire, burning through her pants and sneakers and whatever she was sitting on. On more than one occasion she burnt a particularly hard homework assignment by accident--and far more often then those she'd burn them on purpose and say it was an accident. Her parents, though not anti-Quirk, discouraged Elena from using her Quirk at all. Fire was too dangerous for a girl her age. They may have meant well, but their actions began to make a rift between them and Elena that never healed.
After one particular outburst from Elena's Quirk torched another student's arm, her family relocated to a new city closer to the heart of Spain, and a now secondary-school aged Elena was forced to make brand new friends in a new city at an age where everyone is cagey as can be. Fortunately for her she found some; mostly outsiders, troublemakers, and, unsurprisingly, fellow Quirkers who were pushed out of the more accepted social circles. Nobody among them had a Quirk quite as dangerous as Elena's own. Most of them were cosmetic mutations or small, simple emissions. However, due to the incident that caused their move and her parent's growing strictness, Elena herself was not using her Quirk for anything more than tiny tricks and lighting a few illegally bought cigarettes.
For a few years that was just how it was. One of her closer friends, one that had a fish-like mutation and scales all over, asked her often why she didn't use her Quirk for more. She could do so much with it. Perhaps even be a hero, like the vigilantes spoken about on the news. But Elena laughed those ideas off. She didn't want her parents to tighten their hold on her anymore than they were already.
And somewhere deep down she was scared of hurting anyone else, accidental or not.
Then there was a shooting. It was a shock across the news: one of the peaceful pro-Quirk marches in the capital had been fired upon by radicals, killing three but injuring dozens more. Elena had not been in attendance--her parents refused to let her go, despite some of her friends leaving to do so. Among the dead was her friend who'd asked her why she didn't try to be a hero. She'd only been sixteen years old.
Elena's perspective changed overnight. She was no longer scared of hurting people with her Quirk; or rather, she was no longer afraid of hurting those who deserved it. With blind fury she snuck out of her parents home and went to the arrested shooter's home, having taken all the information given out by the news, and burned the place to the ground. Nobody was inside, but the act of arson was still a crime, as was the use of her Quirk to do so. Elena avoided arrest simply by the virtue that her figure, when engulfed in flame, was unrecognizable to any witnesses.
But her parents recognized it.
The fight when her parents confronted Elena was one that woke the neighbors and frightened alley cats. While they threw demands and threats and desperate attempts to get her to understand just how reckless her actions had been, Elena screeched that their forced inaction on her part had left her friend to die. What was she supposed to do? Let the law throw a murderer in jail? He deserved to burn for what he'd done, and without his body to do so to, then his belongings could melt and turn to ash for what he'd done to her friend. Her parents didn't agree. They kept telling her what she'd done was a crime, that she had to go to the police and turn herself in, that it was the only way for her to at least receive a lighter punishment. They didn't understand. How could they, when they were "normal"?
Once again Elena ran away from home, narrowly avoiding pursuit by hiding in one of her other friends' homes, and sleeping under bridges and on the street when they weren't able to hide her. She lived like this until a greater chance for escape presented itself: one of her surviving friends from the protest was leaving for Japan--where his family was from--to escape his own survivors guilt and, hopefully, be safer from future attacks. He helped to hide Elena among his belongings until they were on a boat headed south, and once they were on Japanese soil, she stayed with him for two years in a small apartment paid for by his unaware parents still living back in Spain. In that time she's learned the language and, even without her high school diploma, has managed to get a job as a hostess. It makes decent money.
But of course hosting isn't what she's really doing for a living. Whenever she's not working--or avoiding the police since she has no real visa--she's become the Blue Blitz, a vigilante hero seeking to help others and burn out the evil of the world.

Type: Transformation Rank: D Description: Elena's body can turn into literal fire. She can either turn her entire body into flame--which will burn off any clothes she's wearing and, as such, is a bit of a pain--or choose to ignite part of her body, usually her arms up to the elbow. When in this state she can still take physical damage, but she can slowly heal herself as her flames will engulf or regrow wherever or whatever has been harmed. However she cannot hold items or punch people when she's made of flame, and, naturally, anything she touches will burn. Even her footprints, should she be entirely made of flame, will leave scorch-marks on the ground they walk on.
She can turn her fire on and off at will. When she is about to ignite her left eye will glow bright enough to be seen through her bangs. Aside from her eye her Quirk also causes her body temperature to be quite a bit higher than average--only by three degrees or so, but still enough that a worried party may think she's feverish--and, despite her body temperature not being nearly high enough to cause this, drops water will cause her skin to steam. Because of this she despises rain. Drinking water and other liquids does not, thankfully, cause the same effect to happen.
Benefits: [Burn:] Elena's fire burns at a fairly high temperature, enough that a good "punch" from her will light a campfire ablaze. Wood will be reduced to ash, stone will crack from heat, and metals with a lower melting temperature (such as lead) will slowly turn into liquid at her touch. She can leave a moderately strong burn on a person that lasts two rounds, causing them persistent pain unless they seek medical attention.
[Regeneration:] Elena can heal damage done by physical attacks over a period of time. She can heal small injuries, such as scrapes and bruises (though they do not appear on her flame body), and shallow bleeding cuts, within a single post; she can heal moderate injuries, such as deep bleeding wounds and dislocated joints, within three posts; and she can mend ripped muscles and regrow severed fingers over four posts. Her healing effect manifests as blue fire both in and out of her flame body (cuts will glow blue as they stitch shut, severed fingers will appear to be made of flame until complete), and as such is obvious to any observing her that she is using her Quirk.
[Flame Resistant:] Elena's skin is resilient to fire and heat in general, which is good when one of her arms is made of fire and the other isn't. She doesn't want to burn herself. That said she can only be standing in or otherwise touching fire for five posts before she begins to burn like a normal person. This includes fire produced from herself, so she has to limit the self-high-fives in combat.
Exhaustion and Weakness: Fire does not like water. This should be obvious. For whatever advantages Elena's flame-body offers her in combat, it leaves her incredibly vulnerable to even the gentlest rain shower or a bucket of water. Any time a flame limb is hit with water, the flame will be doused and she will revert to flesh and blood, leaving her wide open to attack. When this occurs she cannot re-ignite that limb for three rounds, regardless of whether or not she can dry it off in the meantime.
Similarly, being hit with water when her entire body is in flame is very very bad. Not only will she revert to flesh and blood--and be naked, too, because clothing is surprisingly not flame-resistant--but she will be in incredible pain that will debilitate her for one round of posts. In this time she is completely vulnerable, and even once her senses have returned to her, she still cannot re-ignite any part of her body for another two rounds. In this instance her best option is to run away or hide behind an ally until she can rejoin the fight.
On the same note, however, Elena is unable to use physical attacks on people with her flame limbs as they have no "body" inside to lift, punch, grapple, or otherwise harm anyone beyond burning. This also means that she can't pick up anything, turn any doorknobs, or do anything that requires touch.
(Which is a lot of stuff when you think about it.)
Blunt Force Trauma Rank: F - Weapon Effect: While her fire can't do anything in the way of physical damage, Elena has learned to use one-handed weapons pretty efficiently to make up for that. Her preference is for slender, heavy items like pipes, bats, and even just broken table legs. For this purpose she keeps a baseball-bat tucked into her backpack alongside her work clothes and other necessities.
Heat Rises Rank: F - Agility Effect: When her body is consumed by flame, Elena is able to jump higher and leap farther--not by flying, per say, but by being lighter, as she is literally made of hot air. She can jump upwards about the height of an average ceiling (5-7m). She can also lunge that distance if she has a running start. To use this ability, though, she must be entirely made of fire. Any unchanged limbs will prevent her from "floating".
Flame-Proof Suit Rank: E (Durability) Effect: With the aid of a mysterious techie, Elena now has a suit that is completely flame resistant. It is thin enough that she can wear it under her clothing, and, upon activating her Quirk, it will keep her from being entirely naked once the fire dies down. It has a few pockets for her phone and wallet as well. Helpful!
Stat-wise, it functions as simple durability, capable of tanking hits that could break stone. She's still as prone to burns as her actual Fire-Proof ability allows her to be.

Cocinera Rank: E - Cooking Effect: Between growing up with a mother who loved cooking and living on her own for the last few years, Elena's become quite a good chef. Now that she has a growing amount of friends to cook for she's been working to improve her skills and extend her recipe books. Her repertoire has expanded to include more traditional Japanese foods, as well as a growing number of showy (and still delicious) desserts.
Just don't ask who taught her how to cook. It's still a tender subject.
