Major NPCs

Blizzard

A simple graphic design student at Emerson, who answered an ad at the university to make a few extra bucks as part of a research study. Turns out that study was funded by Terragen! She was injected with an enhanced supersoldier serum that caused her dormant MR node to erupt into a spectacular Nova power. Brainwashed into causing havoc, she and her brother were sent off to Sugarbush, where she proceeded to try and solve global warming by creating a blizzard big enough to cover the planet.
