Sunday Smackdown

To warm the cold air outside this week's battle is a pyrokinetic throw down.


Charlene "Charlie" McGee a young girl possessing pyrokinesis—i.e., the ability to create fires with her mind. She was born with her abilities due to her parents (Andrew McGee and Victoria Tomlinson) having participated in a government-funded experiment during college. Both parents were injected with an unknown amount of a drug known as Lot Six, which, among other things, had been proven to alter the subject's chromosomes and pituitary gland.

Elizabeth 'Liz' Sherman had a normal childhood until her pyrokinetic abilities manifested when she was ten. Raised a Catholic, Liz felt that the fires were a result of her sins, and for a short time managed to keep the fires under control by a combination of prayer and force of will. In July 1973, at age eleven, she again lost control. The resulting blast destroyed an entire city block and, among the thirty-two fatalities, took the lives of her parents, brother, and pet dog. Liz was taken in by the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense in May 1974, where she learned to control her power to some extent. In 1980, she became an agent. Her childhood trauma has left her bitter and she often leaves the B.P.R.D. only to return shortly afterwards.

This should hopefully prove an interesting battle, fighting fire with fire.
