Shirina is 5'7" tall and approx.125 lbs. She has fading steely red hair and
faceted blue eyes like water reflecting on a wall.
Shirina likes quiet and solitude half the time, and the other half throws
herself into the midst of a crowd not to feel so isolated
Water. Shirina has the ability to control water. She can extract water from
anything that contains water, as well as extract things from bodies of water
She can sing a three octave range, but doesn't like singing in front of people
because doesn’t believe she is a good singer.
Shirina always loved water, even before her powers surfaced. She would have
spent all day in the water if she could have. As the “mutant disease” entered
the mainstream media, Shirina would watch the news daily, wanting to be informed
about the mutant situation. It made no sense to her why everyone was so angry
and upset with all the mutants. To her it seemed like an idiotic racial sort of
discrimination, however, her parents were offenders of the idiocy. When her
powers revealed themselves around puberty, she kept it a secret from her
parents, fearing her parents might hate her if they found out. She secretly
applied to the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters out of desperation to hide
her abilities from her parents. Less than a week after being accepted to the
school, Dr. Jean Grey-Summers arrived at Shirina’s home. She explained that
Xavier’s Institute was a private school that would be an excellent route for
Shirina to gain a top-notch education. It wasn’t difficult to convince Shirina’s
parents and before long, Shirina was arriving at the Xavier Institute, a school
to help guide and protect mutants.
