Background/History: Marya Tezescu's powers first manifested when she 15. She caused a glowing black cloud to appear a the feet of a runaway horse, stopping it dead in its tracks and preventing it from trampling her baby sister. Shortly thereafter an officer in the Romanian army arrived to collect Marya so that she, and her power, could be used to help serve the State.

Marya spent the next 13 years in the army, learning various military skills. She also learned how to use her power and was eventually given the code name of mlastina, or "quagmire." Eventually, in 1982, the UN banned military teams, and Marya headed to Bucharest to work as a bodyguard for various Romanian leaders. This came to an end in 1987, when Gorbachev's reforms eliminated the bodyguards. Marya headed home, but quickly became bored with village life. In 1988 she volunteered to join the IST.

Personality/Motivation: Although a good solider and loyal to the IST, Mlastina suffers from a lack of imagination and a constant need to question orders. She often compares everything to how "we did it in the army" and at times doesn't seem to understand need for a different set of procedures in the IST.

Quote: "Drop and give me 20!"

Powers/Tactics: Mlastina can anchor objects to the ground, rendering them immobile. This seems to be based on some form of kinetic redirection, as she can also use this same power to defend herself (hence her increased PD and ED). As her power is rather limited to reducing enemy mobility (her main job in combat), she carries a Uzi submachine gun for increased offensive punch, and wears an armored vest for additional protection.

Appearance: Mlastina stands 5'5" and weighs in at a very fit 130 pounds. She has light brown hair cut short (in an almost pageboy style) and black eyes. Her costume looks to be a variation on her old military uniform.

Designer's Notes: Mlastina is a very nice character. She has an interesting power and a somewhat realistic take in powers and equipment in her armored vest and Uzi. As you have another 10 points to add to make her a 350-point character, I suggest a point of SPD, a Damage Class for her Commando Training, and maybe some OCV levels with her Quagmire power.
