Serious, yet sensitive, and just a little bit shy, Sue is a nerd at heart who isn't entirely comfortable with her curvy, amazonian physique, or the superpowers that came with it. Her early experiences as a superhero - in particular, her time as part of the Apex Initiative (a now defunct Vancouver-based super-team) - were profoundly negative, and left her bitter, disillusioned, and slightly traumatized. Consequently, she displays a deep distrust of superheroes and superhero culture in general; regarding it as shallow, vapid, and dangerously reckless. Even so, as the oldest and most experienced member of the SSI team, Sue often finds herself thrust (involuntarily) into a leadership role, and frequently serves as a mentor, of sorts, to the younger recruits - something she isn't entirely comfortable with. In spite of this apprehension, Sue has nonetheless warmed to several members of her new team - particularly the cripplingly shy, amnesiac shape-shifter, Feign, with whom she enjoys a sort of big sister/little sister relationship.
While generally patient and kindhearted - particularly towards underdogs or social outcasts - Sue has a fiery temper lurking beneath her gentle exterior, and once incited to anger, she can be extraordinarily difficult to calm down. So far, only SSI's resident secretary - Babbette "Bubbles" Lefebvre - has managed to consistently provoke her without suffering the consequences.
This is something I've been wanting to do for a while now - a proper profile/reference picture for my wind-themed superhero, Typhoon. I can't even begin to express how thrilled I am with how this piece came out -
did an absolutely spectacular job, particularly with the color-scheme of her costume, for which I gave him a fair amount of creative leeway. I absolutely love her expressions, especially in the background image (dem puffy cheeks~), and his choice of poses compliments them perfectly.
I apologize for the somewhat sloppy profile text. I would have preferred to upload a full and complete bio for Typhoon to go along with this picture, but there are several elements to her back story which are still in flux, and I'd rather not set anything in stone until I'm certain which direction I want to take things. As I hash out more of the details, I'll update and expand this profile into something more substantial.
