Reputation

Anyone who knows Psylocke well, knows that they don't know her at all. She is highly unpredictable and impulsive, and just when you think you've gotten to know her, she can flip on a dime and become something totally different. It's all a part of who she is. And who -else- she is. But she is known to be (almost always) lawful and forthright. Except when she's not. Which makes her a bit of a wildcard.

Biography

Betsy Braddock has some of the most convoluted history of any character who existed, like EVER. So let's break it down to its most basic parts. The rest can be explored through roleplay.

Betsy Braddock was born as a British citizen. But then she was captured by Spiral alongside a Japanese assassin named Kwannon. The souls, minds, and spirits were torn from both women's bodies, and blended together, then torn in two and returned to the two respective bodies.

The result? Total confusion. Betsy is now in the body of the Japanese assassin, and her powers are nearly unrivaled. Having taken up the mantel of Captain Britain at one time, she keeps her allies within the Captain Britain Corps. But she has since traveled to the United States and became an X-Man by the codename "Psylocke." She is a model and an assassin. She works alongside her allies in the X-Men. And she gets confused a lot on who she really is.

Want to learn more? She's always available for a pleasantly confusing roleplay experience.

Character Details

Considering that Psylocke is a magical amalgamation of two very different women, to say Psylocke's personality can be a little erratic is putting it mildly. Betsy was warm, cheerful, a little arrogant and a lot adventurous. Kwannon was cold, calculating, blunt to the point of being tactless, and perhaps just a little heartless. This means that there are times that Psylocke can be rather affable and other times that she can be rather aloof, and there is no telling which version of her you are going to get at any given moment.

Between her adventurous nature from one part of her and her killer instinct from the other, Psylocke can be very decisive, especially when in the heat of battle. Once a decision is made, there is very little keeping her from acting upon said decision immediately. Add to that that both personalities were willing to kill and Psylocke is a force to be reckoned with.

However, for all her flaws, Psylocke's melded personalities have their good sides to. She is loyal, almost to a fault. She has a maternal instinct for small children, letting them see a softer side of her then most ever get to. It is said around the halls of Xavier's that Psylocke is the perfect person to go to when you have nightmares, because she is scarier than the nightmares themselves.

She comes across as a bit of a health nut, as both her daily exercise regime and her strict dietary plan are adhered to with an almost religious fanaticism.
