Galactic Shaman / Syd Crayna

Real Name: Sydney Crayna (When not merged), Galactic Shaman (When Merged)
 
Other Aliases and Nicknames: Cosmic Shaman, Shaman, The Entity, Entity
 
Public / Secret Identity: Syd Crayna
 
Place of Birth: Midtown, Vibora Bay
 
Citizenship and Legal Status: Citizen
 
Age: Syd 25; Galactic Shaman unknown
 
Height: 5'6'' - 5'8'' (Depending on the influence of The Entity)
 
Weight: 130 lbs
 
Eye Color: Green
 
Hair Color: Dirty blonde but may be dyed different colors
 
Other Distinguishing Features: The Entity views through her right eye, causing there to be no pupil. Her left eye always has a pupil even when merged, allowing Syd to see through it.
 
Civilian Occupation: None currently.
 
Known Relatives: Father Sam Crayna and mother Victoria Crayna
 
Marital Status: Single
 
Known Allies: None that Syd is aware of, The Entity will not share.
 
Known Enemies: Galactic Heretics, Qularr, Gadroon, Horrors, Kings of Edom
 
Previous Supergroup Affiliations: None
 
Base of Operations: None.
 
Known Metahuman Powers: While merged, Galactic Shaman can call upon magic from different realms and planets throughout the cosmos. These include restorative as well as devastating bolts or beams. The Entity chooses to not reveal the location these powers are drawn from for fear of losing them to the enemy but admits they are not her own, but simply channeling and opening gate ways to direct these natural cosmic abilities. The Entity is far more durable than a human, it’s body either absorbing or phasing through injury but is not without limits.
 
Other Remarkable Abilities: She can teleport, as well as make herself miasma, and breath in space. She can also shift between the physical and ethereal planes, teleport to any place in the cosmos she has visited in an instant, and merge with Syd at any moment when needed.
 
Equipment and other Items: The only "equipment" The Entity has are her Galactic Gauntlets she uses. These are the gates connected to her powers.
 
Limitations: Syds body eventually tires and is mortal as well as the mental struggle for Syd to reclaim her body does take a toll. The Entity, therefore, can only stay merged when Syd wishes her to have control or can over power her mind. The Entity can also not open too many gates too quickly or risk mixing opposing cosmic powers which, they say, could kill it or its powers.
 
Backstory:
 
The Galactic Shaman is more an entity than a real person or thing. It does, however, have the ability to take a host. Syd Crayna, the host of this entity, does not posses special powers, abilities, or strengths but with the Galactic Shaman within her she can now do so much more. The Entity has stated that it has defended other worlds and dimensions but simply because it's own power would be threatened.
 
The Galactic Shaman powers allow her to super naturally heal others, as well as use the power of the cosmos to strike down any one in her path. The two share the same body, but do not enjoy each others company. While Syd likes having power, the Entity simply sees her as a vessel in the way of the greater good of the galaxy. This inner conflict has draw backs such as phasing in and out of the "Cosmic" form as Syd puts it causing great stress on her body if too many phases happen rapidly. The Entity, also, gets weakened from having to force itself back to the surface and suppress Syd.
 
The Entity is reluctant on disclosing who or what it is, or where it came from, only that it has a duty it wishes to accomplish; That being to expand it's power which it believes another source may be on Earth.

As far as Syd can tell she wasn't "chosen" by any means, or else she and The Entity would get along. No, she feels that it was an accident that they must both live with. Maybe a teleportation accident sent it into her body to force the merge, maybe it was weak and she was available, maybe it was just as easy as the first person it saw. It is hard to say for sure as her memory of the moment is being blocked by the Entity and it will not say for certain why Syd is the host.
((More to come!))

Still kind of working that

Still kind of working that out, honestly! But it may just come down to cliche possessing the first target they saw. We will see. It is mysterious so it's reason may come with RP!
