Isea is a villain in the now-defunct City of Heroes MMO. She is a member of The Libra Order.

Character History

Early History

When she was a teenager, Aria Childs loved the opera. It was said she had she had a voice that would rival the biggest stars. It wasn't long before she was contracted to perform on the stage, and the reviews declared her to be the next diva.

Then one night her whole family was attacked by the Hellions. She and her whole family were visciously assaulted and then left inside their home while it burned. She was rescued, but the fire and smoke destroyed her singing voice. She used what money she had to get the resources needed to hunt down the Hellions responsible, and then she hunted down the opera diva that hired them and killed her in cold blood.

She knew she would go to prison for what she did. She proudly pled guilty for her crimes, but was given the opportunity to escape from prison thanks to Arachnos before she could be sentenced. She felt she had no life after the loss of her singing voice, but something convinced her to forge a new path. That voice, it turned out, was the cosmic force known as Libra.

Libra directed her to a coven that would turn her icy demeanor into power, giving her mastery over cold. In return for this transformation, she would dedicate herself to the Libra Order and do whatever Libra or his apostles ask of her.

Thus Aria Childs was dead, and Isea was born.

"Borrowed"

At the request of Libra, Isea agreed to let Lyon Powers "borrow" her likeness and abilities for a clandestine mission led by John Cole for the Guardians of the Dawn. But while she was able to copy Isea's likeness, she was not able to mirror her personality. Thus when Lyon carried herself as Isea, people were able to spot her as a fake.

As a result, when the real Isea came back from hiding, other residents of the Isles mocked her for being so cheaply impersonated. Isea was offended by this and swore revenge.

Debts of Honor

(See "The Libra Order: Debts of Honor")

When given permission from her patron to repay her "Debt of Honor", Isea did not hesitate. She had been preparing for her revenge from day one, figuring out how to hurt Lyon Powers in the worst possible way, and then getting the right equipment from mystical and tech sources to bolster her powers in a specific way to carry it out.

She used a fake hostage situation to bring Lyon to her. She was cold enough to let the hostages go once Lyon arrived, so everyone would know this was about revenge. When she faced Lyon, she coldly explained why she was there and then attacked relentlessly, using surprise and her enhanced magic to overwhelm the hero.

Lyon fell, crippled by the attack, and Isea was briefly able to savor her victory.

Her savoring was brief, though, as she was then attacked by the Elite Ice Queen and taken into custody. Libra arranged for her release and return to the Isles, where she was able to fully savor her victory.

Powers and Abilities

Her primary ability is Ice Blast. She can wield frigid ice as a weapon.

Her secondary ability is Cold Domination. She can use the power of cold to bolster her attacks, defend against attacks, or to contain and freeze her victims.

She can also use the manipulation of cold air to bolster her leaping powers, allowing her to travel great distances with every leap.

Starting in 2013, she enhanced her mystical powers through some mystic-friendly technology, giving her greater control over her powers.

Personality

To say that Isea has a cold personality would be an understatement. The only time she actually showed emotion since the death of her family was when she dished out her well-planned revenge on Lyon Powers.

Isea is a professional. She doesn't make friends. She works with the Libra Order because it is part of her agreement with Libra.
