Background

Elizabeth Braddock and her twin brother were born in small town England, her and her brother were the second born to a wealthy family, the first born, Jamie, was nearly a decade older. Betsy and her siblings led lives of priviledged lives and when it came to their whims no expense was spared. Before her parents had passed away, she had become a charter pilot. At this time her life began to experience hiccups. She and her brother Jamie were captured by agents of an evil villain and held captive until rescued by Captain Britain. Betsy found out Captain Britain was really her twin brother Brian. At this time Betsy began developing Precognitive powers, maybe from the stress of the kidnap or the revelation of her brother's identity. Whatever it was, she died her hair purple and became a fashion model. As if the flood gates had been opened for her powers, shortly after she developed Telepathic capabilities.

Shortly after becoming a model she was asked to join a Top-Secret Psi-Division and there she met Tom Lennox. She fell in love with Tom and he returned that love. The two, both being Telepaths, shared a mindlink and though she constantly found herself in danger she was happy. Until Tom was killed during a villainous plot to take over the agency they both worked for. She was inside his head when he died and the trauma this caused would prove to be slow healing.

She continued to work for the government, even donning the suit of Captain Britain at a time when her brother had seemingly retired. This led to her having her eyes gouged out at the hands of one of his nemesis and would have been the death of her had it not been to her brother responding to her psychic call. She decided she was done and retreated to the mountains of Switzerland to recover from her wounds.

A interdimensional being known as Mojo kidnapped her from the Alps and after brain washing her he fitted her with Cybernetic eyes. These eyes would serve as cameras now that she was the star of a new Mojoverse hit. She was rescued by her twin once again and brought to live at the X-Mansion. She proved her bravery during an attack on the mansion itself and was nominated to be an X-Man. She would turn out to be quite useful in her role, seemingly willing to give her life in the defense of her team.

Psylocke found herself washed up on an island off of mainland China with amnesia and was taken in by a mysterious ninja clan. Her body was switched with that of Kwannon, the leader of this clan's brain dead lover and trained to be an assassin. She adopted the alias, Lady Mandarin and attempted to kill one of her allies from the X-Men as her first mission. Her psi-blade revealed memories of herself and gave her the will she needed to break free of the mental conditioning. She dropped her role as their assassin and returned to the X-Men.

Advantages

Advantage: No Fear of Death

Psylocke has been killed and somehow she made her back to world of the living. The how and why of this are unknown to her. To be honest, she really doesn't care either.

Advantage: Pilot
Psylocke learned to fly when she was still very young. She has on occasion flown the Blackbird but those moments are rare and that is the way she likes it.

Advantage: Powerful Sibling
Psylocke's twin brother, Brian, is Captain Britain. She has not seen her brother for many years but he always tends to show up when he is needed the most.

Advantage: The X-Men
Psylocke has worked with the X-Men many times before, having gained the trust of more than a few of it's members. She has spent extensive time at Xavier's school training, teaching, and honing her powers.

Advantage: Trained Killer
Psylocke was trained by a ninja clan in China to be an assassin, and is no stranger to killing. She is proficient in the use of blades and many styles of hand to hand combat which can be used with lethal force if necessary.

Advantage: Untapped Potential
Psylocke has been through much in her life and her powers have shifted directions on numerous occasions. For this, she believes that her true potential has even yet to be revealed or recognized.

Flaws

Flaw: Adrenaline

She is always looking to find the next big rush. She will dive headlong into danger for the chance to come out on top with her heart pounding in her ears and her hands shaking. This lands her in more trouble than is probably worth it more often than not.

Flaw: Checkered Past
In the past, Psylocke has found herself pitted against the X-Men, brainwashed by otherworldly beings, and forced to kill when struck by amnesia. This would leave some to believe that she is not wholly in control.

Flaw: Enemies Abound
Having clashed with many powerful villains, Psylocke has managed to create a long list of enemies. Mojo and Spiral, the Scarlet Witch, the Red Queen, and the Shadow King to name a few notables.

Flaw: Own Body
Having had her body switched with that of another woman, Psylocke sometimes gets disoriented and at times is overwhelmed with the need to get back to her own body.

Flaw: Past Love
Psylocke has been romantically involved with many mutants in the past. One of which, Tom Lennox, was killed while she was psi-linked to him. The trauma this caused her has left her heart weary and whimsical in it's fancy of men. Never truly satisfied with anyone, she seeks to sate her lust more than anything.

Flaw: Pawn
Psylocke has been a pawn for both the forces of good and evil. Though she would like to believe otherwise, she has reserved herself to the idea of doing others' "dirty work."

Flaw: Unmastered Control
Lacking fine motor control of her telekinesis, Psylocke is capable of creating a blast of powerful energy yet lacks the the ability to pick up a penny from the ground.
