Summary

(Yes, we know the picture isn't. Deal.)

Background

Tereis has been operating for approximately six years, almost solely in the northeastern United States. She is fairly well-known in that region and generally regarded as incorruptible. She works solo … period.

Encounters: Adrian, Calamity (NPC), Current, Tyche

(Cove City Chronicle)

Neohuman pursuit through the streets of Cove City turned ugly Monday afternoon when both combatants stood their ground and faced each other - to the detriment of the surrounding street and harbor walk. Super-strong heroine Tereis had chased disaster-manipulator Calamity several blocks before he stopped teleport-hopping just out of reach.

His first attack brought a construction crane down open the Silver Spoon Restaurant and Cafe, scything across the patio. Her response created a hyper-accelerated burst of air that ripped down the street and hurled bystanders off the docks into the ocean.

At this point, three young neohumans arose to control the damage and confront the battling pair. One was identified as the oceanic Current; the other two are unknown at this time, but rumors indicate one was a healer and the other may have been the same emotion controller who was involved in the attempted robbery at the Thirteenth National Bank.

Whatever the case, the group rescued the fallen, convinced Tereis to stand down, and in the end, escaped the massive sinkhole Calamity created to prevent him from fleeing. Spectator accounts of the attack are confused, but some people swear that the words "mind control" were tossed around by the younger heroes.

"We aren't saying anything for certain yet," said detective Kate Henshaw. "There are a lot of angles - but depending on whether these reports are accurate and why this incident occurred, we may finally have some leads."

Among the spectators was young Tyche Spiros, familiar to many as a young model and daughter of rock star Marchios Spiros. Miraculously unscathed, the young woman commented, "Hey, I was just studying here. Then bam-pow powers everywhere. So I helped a guy get out from under the rubble, did a bit of first aid. Hi, Mom!"

In view of Tereis' otherwise sterling record, authorities have released her under her own recognizance. She has promised to aid in the repairs and shows deep regret for her involvement in the damage. As for Calamity, he has been unmasked as Hollywood stuntman Spencer Lindley (27) … and claims to have no memory of the incident or even encountering Tereis.

"Seriously, I know to get out of the way of a woman like that," he said. "Much as I'd be tempted to stand around and taunt her, I mean - a man gets attached to his limbs.”
