A dancer and community organizer with a complicated past, Flow is coming to terms with a new body created by metamorphic powers she has yet to fully understand, or trust. But in Destroyer's world, research on super powers can't stay on the sidelines.
- Date of Birth
- February 21, 1992
- Skin Tone
- 5 ft.
Slightly taller than the average and thin, nonetheless Flow has an extremely athletic build, efficient and streamlined, she likes to say.
Apparel & Accessories
Flow dresses casually, and even her costume is little but a shift from (nonessential) glasses to a domino mask paired with loose pants and a tank top.
Morph's powers are shapeshifting, both her body and forcibly changing the bodies of others. However, she has actively avoided most exploration of uses of this power, so the primary result is her body reactively adapting to protect against injury and inversely, her strikes weaken the defenses of her targets. Flow trained to fight aggressively, but her powers work against that. Over time, she's learned to temper her response and prolong battles, as the longer a fight takes, the more her powers slip to her advantage.
Flow was a fighter even when young, living as much on the streets as she was in a home struggling to adjust to a changing world. She was coming into her own identity as a woman at the same time as she was helping her best friend, and once boyfriend, Estevão, develop a gang from the children left displaced by political upheaval.
When she was 17, a run in with the Champions lead her down a different path. Apprehended by the heroes in a theft gone wrong, they saw her youth and gave her a second chance. She saw that even if the police wouldn't help, there were people who would, and when these heroes gave her a second chance, she took it. She left the gang to pour her energy into her neighborhood, and eventually started studying at a local college. After the Vanishing, she grew tired, pulling together the community became too much, and she began to even spend more time with Estevão and the gang once more, slipping into old habits and spreading herself too thin, trying to be everything for everyone.
Then one morning, she woke to find her body changed, now that which she'd always dreamed off, but she was smart enough to know the dangers developing powers in Destroyer's world would mean. In comes Dr. Kaleida and his superpowers lab. Flow took a chance, revealing her powers to him in return for education and protection. Possibly due to some of the testing, she also stopped apparently aging around this time. She's tried to find a new place for her in a world where she wants to help others, but where her powers put a target on her back, and anyone she might try to help.
Flow has a masters in social work from MCU but has been studying with Dr. Kaleida to try to understand super powers, both hers, and more generally.
Flow's primary employment is as a community organizer, working with several programs in and around Millennium City over the years. She also works part time under the table in Dr. Kaleida's lab and teaches Alternating dance and martial arts classes on Thursday afternoons after school for teens.
Failures & Embarrassments
Flow does not speak to it much, but she was instrumental in helping Estevão create Os Garotos Rindo gang, and fears that the links she still has to friends and family within that gang might come back to hurt her. While she still has some feelings for Estevão as well, she'd also rather not talk about that. Her actions in the gang have left her with a criminal record.
Due to questions of personal identity, Flow has yet to fully explore what may be incredibly versatile metamorphic abilities, preferring to use them only reactively.
Bright, kind, and attentive, Flow exudes a confidence she only partially feels. She doubts not so much in her ability, but in her intentions.
Morality & Philosophy

Flow is bisexual, but has mostly dated men.
Flow is a trans woman, having been born with the name Floro. Her powers gave her the body she's always wanted, but she fears that losing control of the powers would also reverse a transition that has given her enormous joy.
Flow has an enormous soft spot for children, and for disadvantaged groups of all kinds. But she does not entertain levity with regards to harming children.
English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish
Flow feels an obligation to the world to understand why she has powers when the rest of the world's heroes have been lost, but even more, she feels that she has to do something in a world plunged into darkness. It feels like every day, no matter her personal successes, that the world falls further from hope.
