During the years leading up to World War II, Clarence Norfolk, a teenager who had grown up on a farm in rural Alabama had gone to a travelling science fair that was visiting his local town, and in accordance with expectations, an accident while unloading two sets of equipment that modern Health and Safety Standards wouldn’t allow within fifty miles of each other, Clarence was bombarded with strange energy pulses. Predictably these left him with incredible powers – flight, incredible strength and toughness and energy beams that he could emit from his hands. During World War II he proved himself again and again under the code name Victor, gaining just about every medal you could conceive of. He came back from Europe a hero. It was not to last.
A last power slowly became apparent – eternal youth. But for a child bought up in the backwaters of rural 1930’s America, this proved as much as curse as a blessing. He found himself uncomfortable with increasing levels of acceptance to communities that in his day had been mistrusted – the Black Community, other Religions, Women’s Rights and the Gay Rights movement were all things which he found difficult to reconcile – but it was his association with the McCarthyist Communist Witch-Hunts of the 50s proved his most famous legacy as on government instruction he brutally beat down an alleged Communist Sympathizing superheroine in a pitched battle through the streets of Washington DC.
He increasingly clung to government as a form of moral guidance on subjects, but after nearly provoking Nuclear War during the later stages of the Cold War, he was locked in a specially designed prison beneath a mountain where his energy was drained to keep him safe while powering America. However, in recent years it seems his powers have been getting more potent to compensate, and the base now requires constant upgrades to keep up within the energy he produces.
The High Matriach is in the unique position to be simultaneously the most feared, but most necessary mortal in this Galaxy. Mortal may be stretching it a bit admittedly, she has a prospective lifespan consisting of most of the rest of the duration of the Universe, and due to the prophecy-curses of her species is unavailable but by another member of her kind, of which there are very few. She is cruel, callous and controls the largest army in the Galaxy. However, this army is also the only thing stopping the things outside our Galaxy getting in…
While most earth literature focuses on the idea of Earth begin invaded or destroyed, the challenge for the Matriach is that might happen to our Galaxy. When a Universe dies, not all that was born of it necessarily dies too, and therefore are ancient even as our own Universe forms around us, and long to colonize the new Solar Systems as their own and recreate their worlds. Most of the time they succeed. Currently the Matriach fights a war on 3 fronts – against the titanic armoured Ur-Gods of Xzar, the endlessly replicating Vordanian Null-men and the hordes infected by the evil Sentient PX3k12 Virus. The Matriach may burn worlds, knowingly send a trillion to their death in an unwinnable battle and break apart the very fabric of the universe itself for a victory… but the alternatives are worse….

Gold Coin is the twin sister of Revlis, and another god exiled from the realm of the gods. After hearing of her sister being banished to earth, she couldn’t really stand for such a severe punishment towards one another, so she chose to exile herself to earth and seal herself in a distant cavern.
Then in the 21st Century, she woke up and wandered the cavern to see if anything has changed. Searching for her sister, Revlis, Gold decides to head to the land closest to the caves she trapped herself in.
In her time, she had the task of observing people as they grew older. She could change her “age” at any given time to blend in within various groups to avoid detection should anyone be chasing after her. She prefers to take the form of a young teenage girl, as it is smaller, and she can move faster in that form.
Unlike her sister, Gold prefers diplomacy to solve her problems.
