Prospering in the fierce competition of the harbingers she found herself ruling her own domain from a dark citadel burning in her own green ghostlight. Controlling several slave cities and ruling a court of other mutants she ruled over her share of New Eden spreading terror to dominate and rule in the name of her master.
Galaxyan chose Grim Ichor’s iteration of Next Gen as the most suitable testing ground for the new agent. With Grim Ichor being a fromer villain herself she was judged to be both empathic and ruthless enough to recognize and in an emergency eliminate Blight should she get out of control.
Contrary to the fears of Next Gen Command Blight fit this universe like a glove, completely reinventing herself within a matter of days. The evil overlord, leading armies of destruction was gone, replaced with Victoria VanKleef, a woman catering to the darkest taste of high society, acquiring wealth and influence at frightening speed. Marrying into money two times within the first quarter year she secured her status as a black widow. Changing even further after her basic status was secured she stopped such crimes turning herself into a professional dominatrix using her skills to provide unmentionable entertainment to even the most jaded of Millenium City’s elite. Instead of competing with Grim Ichor she befriended her new leader, already used to accepting that there may be one person she has to listen to from her old life. She uses her skills and experience to support the other mutants in Next Gen, her self-interest making her wish to improve the strength of her new family.
As a superhero Blight is still a frightening side since none of her masks can hide her nature as a killer if she uses her powers to fight. Turning a weakness into a strength she made use of that too, making sure she is seen fighting the worst scum of Millenium City. She has already been caught on camera, explaining the killing of Viper terrorists in front of witnesses by mentioning the school just in the next street and asking if it is not better for everyone if such individuals can not come back. She makes sure she is only seen while fighting the worst examples of villains, holding back in other cases if necessary to protect the image of a dark but necessary avenger of the innocent.
Still Blight does make some enemies among her team with her often cruel or demeaning remarks and what happens within her three story luxury apartment after the door closes behind the last guests is a matter best not investigated too closely. Some villains just seem to vanish after engagements with Blight after all. Being infinitely patient this evil has not reformed, it has only evolved into a more civilized and calculating form.
Mutant Powers: Blights mutant power is to drain life energy from those around her, her touch can even kill otherwise incorporeal lifeforms. Her touch is mindnumbingly painful, causing cellular destruction on a massive scale not too different from radiation. Unlike radiation the damage done by her powers seems to heal on its own if she stops before consuming her victim’s life completely. She can also use this power at range, green whisps of balelight waving from her to her enemies, transferring their life to her. This stored life energy can be used to heal herself.*
*Since her mirror image Blight uses the same power and uses the stolen energy in explosive bursts of power it stands to reason that Blight might have had the same ability before she was transformed into a more efficient form by the biotechs of her homeworld
The deathlight: If Blight does release her power outside of her body it is not escaping energy but a field of death that drains even more power into her. During combat this can take the form of green balefire flaring around her and matching lightning striking from her claws and weapons. In combat enemies often die simply from being near Blight without any active effort on her part once her deathfield is fully active.
It takes active effort for Blight to not drain others with her touch and while she can hold back it is always painful. She can only limit the extend of the damage she causes for a short time which is why she usually covers herself in robes and gloves.
