Place of origin: Unknown.
Appearance: Short, curly black hair large brown eyes. Tall for her age. Usually wears dresses and carries a doll.
Personality: Optimistic and cheerful, even for her age, although she knows more of the darker aspects of the world than most her age. She often pushes her guardian to save people and act as one of the superheroes she looks up to. If she starts displaying local knowledge she shouldn't be able to know, run.
Powers: Unknown, except for massively powerful mental sheilds, although they were likely implanted from outside.
Shepherd, aka Warden Harper:
Species: Unknown, again possibly a demon.
Place of origin: Unknown.
Age: Unknown, at least the age of his charge.
Appearance: Normally looks like he could be Ariana's father- short black hair, brown eyes, 6'5". However, he can take the form of any living being of roughly equal mass, although he can gain mass from others or lose it with some effort.
Occupation: Has seemingly limitless money always on hand. Uncertain where he gets it.
Personality: Singleminded and overprotective of Ariana. Brutal and precise fighter. Despite the fact she's only his charge, he has grown to care about Ariana.
Body manipulation- Shepherd can rearrange and grow his flesh and bone, often to make tentacles or bone spikes, and even skin flaps for gliding. He can also change color.
Regeneration- Regenerates extremely quickly. Can regather parts as long as cells are intact, but for more major injuries he has to gather mass from others. This on top of his city block durability makes him very hard to put down. He can also operate with very little of his body intact.
Speed- Can move at low supersonic speeds, with hypersonic twitch reflexes, although he doesn't think that fast.
Strength- Can hold ten tons.
Mental shields- As with Ariana, he has extensively powerful mental shields.
At first glance, they seem ordinary. Just a son and his daughter, usually seen in airports or bus stops, never in one place for long. Those who take interest in conspiracies and the occult may notice pictures of them all over the world, clips of security footage and satellite images. Sometimes the man looks different, sometimes he's even a woman, but the girl is always the same. She is the avatar of an unknown god, needed for unknown purposes. Her guardian defends her until an appointed time, defending her from those who want to use her potential powers or fear what her god will bring. Many have tried to take her. All have failed, and the pair disappears before many especially grisly murders end up found. Even now they travel the world, trailed by the remainder of those who hunt them. Unfortunately, people are beginning to take notice of the odd killings of cult members and law enforcement, and they can stay hidden no longer...
