STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
Cira is an experienced mentalist; Illusions and mindtricks are her forte, as is her use of small arms. She has an extraordinary gift of eidetic memory and mimicking movements.
Cira, above all else, is a Disciple of Twilight. The Force adepts who were members of the Disciples of Twilight sought primarily to use the Force to bend light. Prior to the virus, upon discovery of Dyspeth, members of the tradition that moved throughout the galaxy found that they were capable of using their Force powers to a greater extent, since most worlds were brighter than their own. The Disciples of Twilight shared powers comparable to the Fallanassi, who also possessed the ability of bending light.
As a Disciple of Twilight, she is adept at using Force abilities that are unheard of anywhere else in the galaxy. Members used the Force to manipulate both light and darkness; the Disciples were capable of using the powers Cloak of Shadow and Shadow Armor to bend light so that they could render themselves invisible. She can use the Force to gain low-light vision and to locate enemies that concealed themselves. As am adept, she can also utilize the Force to create illusory phantoms around an enemy.
Cira was also trained by dark, light, and neutral parties, broadening her knowledge on various Force methodologies that she excelled in.Kro Var, Kiffar, Jessarai, ZeisonSha;she has an insatiable interest in expanding this knowledge, all the while stating that it is the intent to which you use the Force with, not the actual Force itself.
Due to her Shi'ido ancestry, Cira is able to psionically shift the formation of her biological cells at will to change her appearance and thereby assume the form of other near humanoid form she so desires, ranging from skin, eye, bodyshape, hair, and to a limited degree, body mass. She can also alter her voice to duplicate exactly that of another person. However this is limited, as she is unable to fully transform into larger creatures.
Her body is not limited to purely organic appearances: She has the ability to create the appearance of clothes and other materials out of her own body, including items such as glasses, zippers, identity cards, handbags and even test tubes. She is also able to morph her body into taking certain desired physical traits depending on her situation at the time. Examples of this new ability include night vision, wings on her back, talons in her fingers, and natural body armor.
As a shape-shifter, Cira is able to constantly alter and rejuvenate her body's cells and thereby retain her youthful appearance despite being alive for over two hundred years. She is also able to hold a shape when knocked unconscious, unlike Clawdites.
She is a talented actress and also possessed a form of telepathy due to her Shi'ido heritage, where they used this ability to project false impressions upon those of other species, allowing them to cover up any inconsistencies with their transformations.This was extremely useful when studying species that identified each other through smell as well as sight, as a Shi'ido could project the feeling that they had the same exact scent as that particular species.Their telepathy required great concentration, and they would lose control of it if they were distracted. As with their shapeshifting abilities, this telepathy also grew more powerful with age.
She has some natural resistance to telepathic intrusion and wears devices to prevent her mind from being read by telepathy. She is also constantly maintaining Quy'tek meditation, hiding her force signature and Force sensitivity to others. Furthermore, with over a century's experience in posing as other people she has picked up the uncanny skill of being able to identify people posing as others based on body language and changes in behavioral cues.
She is a skilled xenoarcheologist and xenosentologist. She was a researcher for Coruscant University specializing in civilizations of the Outer, Unknown, and Wild Regions of space from before the Gulag virus and after.
She is an expert in force artifacts, advanced holocron creating, and a skilled holocron and datacron authenticator.
She has a wealth of research notes on the New Galaxy building plan, ancient Force Organizations, and a general understanding of their philosophy, culture, and knowledge.
Weaknesses include a lack of mastery in the majority of forms with a lightsaber; so she rarely uses it. As such, during her travels, she learned to master Stava and K'tara martial art forms and has only an average knowledge of the Echani martial art form.
The scent of deathsticks affects Cira in an adverse manner, granting her higher than normal hallucinations.
She is also mildly claustrophobic, with a severe dislike of having knock out drugs used on her.
She has been as of late been developing a growing sense of paranoia about infiltration, sith movements, and other governments attempting to overthrow the Protectorate.
Not much is known about 'Cira's background prior to Omega Pyre. All that it is known is that it is indeed an alias, and less than a handful know her by her prior alias, none know her true name. She has forged Omega Pyre into the company it is right now through rigorous work and is very protective of her company and her employee's. She takes a personal touch, often joining missions with her subordinates under different aliases.
While conducting business, it is difficult to determine exactly what she is thinking, and is more than able to hide her true emotions from others. However, when faced with the unknown, it can cause her a level of discomfort and annoyance -- most notably when it comes to former Syndicate Leader Ayden Cater, who has been the only person able to bring out the worst in her.
Unknown: This will require much investigation to learn
Talia was born on Dyspeth, a moon located in the shadows of an outer rim planet prior to the release of the virus nearly 400 years ago. She is a Disciple of Twilight.
After the individual known as "Twilight" formed the Disciples of Twilight, the members of the group sought to combine their efforts so they could adapt to Dysepth's dark environment. They eventually sought to defend the people of Dyspeth. The group believed in "shadowy justice"; when the tradition's members spread across the galaxy after Dyspeth's discovery by the Republic, they sought to protect weaker sentients from the cruelty of the strong.
She was part of a surveying expedition of a dozen of her kin exploring wild space and part of the New Galaxy Building plan, where the deep space cryocells they slept in protected them from any outside contact.
A malfunction served to alter the ship's course, catching them at the edge of an event horizon of a black hole, freezing them in time.
It wasn't until the age of darkness that the ship had been found by a salvage crew -- reviving the crew from there slumber, and to their horror, the knowledge that Dyspeth had been completely and utterly ravaged by the virus, leaving them to believe that they were the only surviving Disciples left.
Talia's desire to find, protect, and reconnect with the rest of her kind surfaced into ambition to create Omega Pyre one hundred years after the event -- providing a means for those lost Force Organizations to prosper and protect what little remained. Like the Disciples of Twilight on Dyspeth, she strives to protect weaker sentients from the cruelty of the strong, using the Disciple of Twilight mantra that anyone who was Force-sensitive and agreed with the Disciples' beliefs, now Omega Pyre's mission, was welcome to join.
