Abilities: Elektra is a skilled practitioner of a native form of martial arts similar to Capoeira of Terran Brazil, which focuses on attacking with kicks, sweeps, and head strikes, as well as defensive trickery and evasion. She also possesses an ability known as Farsight. This is akin to mental telepathy, but rather than thoughts it is images of her surroundings that she can detect. These images come from a range far outside that of her normal vision and appear in her mind almost like a negative image, other lifeforms outlined with red or hot white 'auras'. An other trait that is sometimes seen is a 'mental punch' that is capable of throwing someone or something backwards with great force. This latter is often only seen during times of great stress, and it has been suggested that it requires the adrenaline of fear or anger to provide the stimulus that triggers the ability. Like all Solitarians, she possesses keen senses of hearing, sight, smell and touch in comparison to many other races. Her reflexes are quick, and she possesses great strength and agility.
