Explanation of the conversion: Since Inhumans are supposed to be physically superior to most humans, I gave Crystal near pear human Characteristics.

Avengers #376 History: Crystal was the second daughter born to the Inhumans Quelin and Ambur. She was exposed to the Terrigen mist as an infant and developed powers over the four classical elements. Her father Quelin was the brother of Rynda, who married Agon the King of the Inhumans. This meant Crystal was a member of the royal family and cousin to the next king, Black Bolt. She is also cousin to the Inhumans Karnak and Gorgon. She encountered the Human Torch II in New York and introduced him to the secret Inhumans base where the Inhumans royal family was held up. They left the base to escape the Seeker and were trapped inside Maximus's negative zone barrier (Fantastic Four #45-48).

She helped rescue Quicksilver and started dating him (Fantastic Four #131-132) and eventually married him (Fantastic Four #150) and had a daughter named Luna (Fantastic Four #240).

Incredible Hulk #279 Once it was established that Bruce Banner's mind was in control of the Hulk's body, the Hulk was treated to a celebration in New York City where he received a presidential pardon from Ronald Reagan, the key to the city, and praise from a number of superheroes, including Crystal (Incredible Hulk #279).

Her older sister Medusalith eventually married their cousin Black Bolt, making Black Bolt both her cousin and brother-in-law! By her marriage with Quicksilver she is also related to the Scarlet Witch (sister-in-law), Magneto (father-in-law), the X-Men member Joseph (clone of her father-in-law) and the Vision II (former brother-in-law). Crystal has served with the Fantastic Four when Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman left to devote more time to raising their son (Fantastic Four #305).

After leaving them she joined up with the Avengers (Avengers #336).

Crystal was among the heroes who were mentally compelled into joining the Goddess in her Infinity Crusade (Infinity Crusade #1).

Avengers III #1 Crystal was among the members of the Avengers who were captured by Morgan Le Fay and mind controlled into becoming her personal guard, the Queen's Vengeance. While under her control she went by the name Elementelle. She was eventually freed and helped defeat her (Avengers III #2-3).

She currently resides in the city of Attilan which now resides on the risen island of Atlantis.

Powers: Crystal has the ability to control the four classical elements of nature with her mind. She has been able to shoot bolts of fire, make it rain, fly by riding the wind, summon gusts of wind, extinguish fire over a large area, and move large amounts of water and earth with her mind.
