Character History

Shelly Percey left medical school in disgrace during her third year, when one of her professors found her performing unethical experiments on an injured hero. Since her fall from grace, Shelly's kept herself busy providing medical services to the less scrupulous metahumans to be found by the dozen in the Rogue Isles, where she was able to complete her studies. She doesn't stoop to treating those without super powers, and she's become quite an expert in her somewhat rarefied field. She owes her mastery of the metahuman physique to her insatiable curiosity, which has gotten her into trouble more than a few times.

For several years, she was spending her time with the freelance operative known as John Cole. She had been intrigued by his physical abilities, which somehow exceeded the normal talents of an Arachnos operative, although she also found herself being attracted to him in more ways than just medical curiosity. The relationship ended, though, when he left for Paragon City.

According to Cole, Shelly's true beauty is one of the three "hidden wonders" of the Rogue Isles.

Powers and Abilities

Although she is fascinated in superhuman abilities, she has none other than her scientific mind.


Shelly Percey is shown to be a sociopath. She is amoral manipulator who uses her charm and sexuality to get others to do her bidding. This was evidenced in how she treated John Cole, who was supposed to be her "patient".


Shelly was in a personal relationship with Cole for several years, although she claimed it was simply "professional curiosity". She exhibited profound jealousy toward the female members of The Libra Order, since she feared they would try to seduce Cole from her. She also had an ongoing hatred of Crystal Burke, the sister of Matthew Burke, who was Cole's first girlfriend from their younger years, and blames her for ruining their relationship.

Their relationship ended when Cole was violently purged of all of his Arachnos Widow implants and abandoned the Rogue Isles for Paragon City. She sent Cole her string bikini as a way of ending the relationship, saying it was the only way now he would ever "see" her bikini. (Percey continually strung Cole along with promises of seeing her in a string bikini if they were able to enjoy some time alone out in the water, which never could happen.)
