II. PETRA aka PETRA
In grand Claremont fashion, it's now Petra's TURN!
Petra during her street smurt phase
Like Suzanne Chan, Petra was born in America to a family that immigrated from another country. This time it was Denmark. However, unlike Suzanne Chan, Petra wasn't given a surname. So, let's appreciate Petra and choose a surname for her from this database of 1000 Danish surnames.
Vognsen, Brandstrup, Grønhøj, and Blaabjerg are my top picks! What are yours?
Anyway, Petra's powers began to manifest while she was on a hiking trip with her family. During the hiking trip, a rockslide occurred. Her family was killed by the boulders. According to young Petra, 13 y.o.then, the entire mountainside was at her command which is why she didn't get injured. After the tragedy, she was forced to live in a foster home, share bedroom with five kids, and live under the supervision of terrible foster parents.
As described, the wife was old and bitter and smoked all the time. While her husband was nicer, he needily touched her a lot...
And, indeed, during a trip with her foster family in Central Park, the creep of a husband tried to "touch" her. Out of fear, she attacked him with SOIL! but at the same time, the creep called her a "...mutant..." She ran away and cried because for the first time she began to realize that she probably killed her family or at the very least, she could have saved them.
She cried a lot that day but eventually, she got her sh*t together because she had to. While living in Central Park, Petra learned to make her own lair/ cave which she used as a way to hide from freedom hating policemen who arrests nature loving people like her. What's special about her lair was that she could close it and open it by herself because it was made of ROCKS!
However, as a runaway, life wasn't ideal. Petra panhandled, dumpster-dove, and stole (such a true hobo! <3). But unlike angry street punx in New York, Petra didn't do drugs! At the age of sixteen, she learned to transform sh*t into diamond, like Emma Frost. After the discovery, she sold the diamond, got into a motel, rented a room for an hour, and had her first shower in two years. <3 Such a success story!
But in the end, her trick made some freedom hating clerk call the police. They caught her, she was imprisoned, Moira found her, and trained her for a suicide mission. Her costume included a diamond necklace.
