Biography

It was a proud day when Major Fiona O'Neall, USAF, was selected by NASA to become an astronaut. Already an accomplished fighter pilot, she became the pilot of the Space Shuttle Constitution on February 15th, 2005. After a textbook launch and a rendezvous with the International Space Station, the re-entry back into Earth's atmosphere did not go as planned. Something that neither the crew nor mission control had noticed, some kind of flaw, caused the Space Shuttle to break apart as it tore through the sky, turning into a fireball. When NASA came to pick up the pieces, scattered all over three states, they found more than just debris - they found Major Fiona O'Neall.

Maybe it was the trauma, or some side-effect of the Shuttle's explosion, but Fiona had developed powers. Monstrous strength, a toughness that had allowed her to survive her fall through the sky, and she shone like daylight. Although physically fine after months of recuperation, she has a terrible fear of falling born from the events of that day.

Famous as the sole survivor of the Constitution, Fiona decided that continuing a career with NASA wasn't realistic, especially with her newfound phobia. She put her past behind her and moved on with her life, helping those in need as she'd signed up to do as a member of the Air Force. A news reporter with too much faith in his own wit called her "Liftoff" right off the bat, and unfortunately it stuck in the public consciousness so she was forced to adopt it.
