Explanation of the conversion:
History: Born Amare Sweet in Venice, California, Peregrine had a typical childhood until she was struck by
the wild card virus at the onset of puberty. An extremely self-confident young woman, she was determined not to let her wings ruin her life. Instead, she set out to parlay what was essentially her jokerhood (albeit an extremely attractive jokerhood) into fame and fortune.
She first achieved nationwide fame as "the flying cheer leader" while she was still in high school. She moved to New York after graduating from high school, changed her name legally to Peregrine, and was soon established as a top model.
Guest appearances on television talk shows proved her to be articulate and witty as well as exotic and photogenic. She was given an opportunity to guest-host a popular night time show, and eventually took it over permanently, renaming it Peregrine's Perch. She is also a very successful businesswoman with her own lines of clothing, makeup and perfume. Peri is both liked and respected by her fellow aces.
Although happy with her business career, Peregrine also
craves excitement and has been involved in numerous dangerous
situations. She fought the Swarm and was among the group of
aces that destroyed the Astronomer's Cloisters headquarters. It
was during this adventure that she met Fortunato, and after a
brief affair she became pregnant by him and bore his child, John
Fortune, on June 15, 1987.
Peregrine dated many famous men, but never had a serious
relationship until she met a freelance documentary maker named
Josh McCoy on the WHO-sponsored world tour of 1987.
Peregrine, the baby, and McCoy share her penthouse apartment
on Central Park. She and McCoy occasionally talk of marriage,
but have never taken the plunge. She continues to be a favorite
subject of gossip columnists.
Although Peregrine has gorgeous feathery wings and
weighs only 80 pounds because of her hollow, but strong, bone
structure, her ability to fly is really a form of telekinesis; the
wings would not be able to support her weight unaided. However, she has no other telekinetic abilities.
When Peregrine is expecting trouble, she wears specially
designed titanium talons that make extremely effective (and
Powers: Peregrine has the ace power of telekinetic flight. She also has a set of fully functional white feathered wings growing from her back. Although the wings do not grant her the power of flight, they aid her maneuverability in flight. The flapping of her wings is a psychological crutch to her flight, so much so that if they were injured or bound, she would be unable to fly. Peregrine's physilogy is highly efficient, allowing her great strength and agility for her size.
