Lisa Langston was born into a wealthy family in California’s Silicon Valley. For 16 years, she lived a good life. Her parents loved her, she was popular, did well in school, and had a bright future ahead of her. Then, shortly before her 17th birthday, Lisa was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The doctors told her that there was little they could do, but if she and her family wished, they would go ahead and try treatments. Not wanting to live her last few weeks weakened by chemo, Lisa decided to forgo treatments to instead spend her last days surrounded by family and friends.

Lisa’s father, David, was a robotics and artificial intelligence specialist doing research into advanced android technology for Cyberworks US. He was stricken with grief, and refused to accept the fact that his daughter was going die so young. His primary project was dealing with mapping human brainwaves into electronic form, allowing AI’s to have true human emotions and possibly allowing a mind to continue past death in an electronic format. The research had had some very positive results, but was nowhere close for actual human testing. That didn't stop David though.

The night that Lisa died, David, against his parents and his wife’s wishes, took his daughter’s body to his lab. He had illegally procured one of Cyberworks’ prototype Alpha Droids, which were designed to look like, and with David’s research, act like real people. His hope was to use his latest research, which proved successful in two initial tests, would allow his daughter’s mind to live on in an android body that looked much like she did in life. Never more would he have to worry about losing his daughter.

Cyberworks caught wind of what David had in mind. The branch President was about to call the authorities, when Cyberworks’ CEO and founder, Kazuya Ito personally stopped the call. “Why stop him?” Ito mused. “If he is successful, it would be a great boon to the company.”

The process was completed, and David waited to see if his daughter’s new body would stir. Many minutes passed that felt like hours, but then the android whispered “Dad?” David was overjoyed! He held his daughter tight and told her that everything would be fine. Lisa asked where she was and why everything felt strange. Her father explained what he had done, telling her that she would no longer have to live in fear of cancer or disease of any kind.

Lisa was horrified.

She shoved her father away, not realizing that her new body was 10 times stronger than a grown man, and threw him into a computer station. Lisa gasped in fear that even though she was terrified at what her father had turned her into; she still didn't want to kill him. As she ran over to check on him, her vision blurred and she blacked out.

When Lisa came to the lab was swarming with Cybeworks security forces and a Japanese man with a trustworthy, but far too slick demeanor was covering her in a blanket. He told her that he was Kazuya Ito, her father’s boss, and that she was in a lot of trouble as her father was dead. However, as long as she came with him that all would be alright.

Lisa wanted to cry, but no tears came to her electronic eyes. She just sat there staring at her father’s body. That’s when she noticed the bullet holes. She turned on Kazuya and sent him flying across the room. She then leapt at two of the closest guards smashing them into each other. She didn't get much further before bullets riddled her body. She felt pain, rather the impulses that went along with internal damage reports registered as pain, and decided that sticking around wasn't going to do her any good or allow her to get the bastards that killed her father. She sprinted out of the lab, dashing erratically down hallway after hallway, sometimes running into guards that she clumsily dealt with, until she came to an office space with windows. She jumped through the glass and darted off into the night.

She next few days, Lisa spent in hiding. At first she was worried about food and shelter, but soon realized that she didn't have need of either. Her body’s nanites repaired the damage from the gunshots. She stole some clothes off a clothes line (her android form was anatomically correct, adding to the need for clothing). She then decided that her only choice would be to contact her mother to let her know that she was still alive (in a manner of speaking).

Passing a newsstand on the way to her parents’ house, Lisa saw the local newspaper talking about her father being killed in a car-jacking attempt and was found with the body of his recently deceased daughter. She was sickened to read the veiled accusations that her father was up to something disgusting with her corpse, which he was in a sense, but not what the paper was alluding to. She had to talk to her mother…NOW!

Alas, that meeting was not meant to be. As Lisa got within a couple miles of her home, and ran into Cyberworks operatives. They hit her with the same low-level EMP charge that knocked her out before. As she collapsed, she faintly heard the sounds of combat.

When Lisa came to, she was surrounded by several strangers. One in a cowboy hat extended his hand and told her that she was saved by the group. His name was James Justice, leader of a group of renegade heroes called The Posse. He explained to her that they were a group that fights against evil governments and corporations, such as Cyberworks. He pointed over to a large, skull-faced robot and told her that he was also wanted by Cyberworks and that if she wanted, they’d help her get used to her new life. When Lisa said all she wanted to do was to see her mother, James explained that would not be a possibility right now. Cyberworks has her home under constant surveillance in hopes of catching her trying to do just that, but at the first chance, they would help her meet her mother. Lisa agreed to stay with the group, for the time being.

It’s been six months since Lisa joined The Posse. The other android in the group, Cybeast, has helped her grow acquainted with her abilities. Plus, the technologies in her body allowing for her personality to be housed electronically helped him replace his slowly decaying brain that was housed in his android form. She’s also learned to fight as well as become used to what her body is capable of. While she misses her family, and still somewhat feels something like a ghoul having lived past her time, she enjoys being able to fight for those that can’t fight for themselves. She’s thrown herself fully into the role of a superhero.

Lisa finally got to meet with her mother. She took a chance to follow her to a coffee shop one day and talked with her there. It took some convincing, and her mother, while happy that Lisa is still alive (in a fashion), she is thoroughly disgusted at what her husband had done. She wanted her mother to know that she is fine and that she’d likely not be able to visit, but that she loved her. Lisa secretly checks in on her mother when possible, just to know she’s alright, but hasn’t met with her since. In truth, Lisa saw the fear in her mother’s eyes, and it broke her heart. She knows that it’s better that she rarely sees her mother anymore.

Lisa’s android body is that of an attractive, lithe woman that appears to be in her late teens to early twenties. The body is naturally bald, but Lisa tends to wear a black wig to better fit into society. She wears a black jumpsuit, boots, and mirrored shades into combat.
