Personality & Traits

General Overview Astrid is outwardly personable, though she tends not to be the one to make the first move more often than not. By all appearances, she's just an introverted academic but this is partly something she's cultivated deliberately - few know that she had a brief stint in a European intelligence agency before being outed as a mutant and forced into hiding. She's observant and acts with purpose - deep down, though, despite all the pain the established order has caused, she's still a force for good.
Strengths & Weaknesses Astrid has all the hallmarks of a good intelligence operative - intelligent, insightful, observant and adaptive. It's not easy to catch her flat-footed for long in a situation. She can quickly adopt or drop a persona as needed and is capable of defending herself and others.

That said, losing a promising career, staining her family's image and sacrificing more than she expected in a life full of sacrifice has taken its toll. She can be personable, work with others, but getting past her outer defenses isn't easy. Astrid has a hard time trusting entirely - she can trust someone with her life easier than she can with her life's story or who she really is.
Ambitions One day, she hopes to at the very least have her name cleared - not for her own sake but her family's. If she can get back in the graces of her previous employer, so much the better.

At the end of the day though, saving the day and not getting a word of thanks is just part of the life.
Hobbies & Interests Fittingly, Astrid is a voracious reader and writer. Stories new and old are all equally worth her time - she might be deep in an ancient story one week and then into a "dime store" mystery novel the next. Nothing she's written herself has ever seen the light of day, but just being able to is some comfort.

She also is something of a petrolhead, loving fast cars and motorcycles. Astrid does hope to get her hands on something to get away from things on occasion.


Alias Gray
Mutant Registration Status un
Primary Power Telekinesis - Astrid has the ability to manipulate objects with her mind. There is an upper limit to how much she can manage and it does require line of sight of the object to be manipulated. Conversely, she can also launch them but this is also related to the size - the larger it is, the harder it is to throw.
Secondary/Travel Power Astrid has the capacity to use her telekinesis on herself to not quite achieve flight, rather it's more of a controlled fall. It does exert on her more than her normal manipulation of objects.
Training/Skillset Intelligence operative, black operations training
Mission Team Specialty Astrid can act as either a direct line combatant, using her telekinesis offensively or defensively in tandem with her combat training or in the capacity of her past career - performing scouting/recon ahead of the team


Personal History Born to a Swedish father and British mother, Astrid wound up finding that she was born into a life of espionage - her father was a Naval Intelligence commando and her mother was an MI-6 agent. This was something that in one shape or another their children would follow - either becoming spies or commandos. Astrid became the former, and looked like she'd follow right after her mother.

However, there was something inside that was untapped until a particularly harrowing mission. When she realized what she'd done, Astrid knew full well that she'd be hunted for experimentation or extermination. And with that, she fell off the map of her parent agency without a trace - her past life was a "burned" agent that was wanted for questioning and deemed an extreme threat to national security. Her acceptance to Haven was a chance meeting while on the run.
