SCIENCE DIRECTOR - F.T.S.A. NEW YORK
A long term member of Pharos, Asia moved from Moscow, Russia to New York five years before the Resonance to complete her doctorate in molecular genetics. She took over the directorship of the F.T.S.A. in 2016 (attaining the position of Assistant Director in the heirarchy) and since his arrival to the facility has worked closely with Doctor @Atticus Gale in his pursuit of isolating the super-viruses and utilizing gene-therapy to help those Altered Individuals plagued with afflicting changes.
Standing 6'0" tall, if not academically, Asia tends to physically stand out among her peers. She has a lean athletic build, a runner's build combined with that of a swimmer, two sports she excels in. She has long chocolate coloured hair and deep blue eyes set in a face that reflects the stark beauty of her home land.
If anything, Asia is practical. She likes to be stylish and always maintains a professional appearance. Her first and foremost passion is genetics followed by her running and swimming.
Extremely stand-offish and serious, it is difficult to know the 'real' Asian. She avoids serious relationships and has little patience for playful romance. Behind her back, some of her jealous colleagues mock her by saying that she never smiles just to avoid laugh lines. They allude to her being vain, but in truth, she is the exact opposite. Often dressing down when not at work and never wearing make-up, preferring the natural look of her features.
Asia likes to keep active, she either swims or runs every day. At one time she was an Olympic contender for the back stroke and free style and has ever since maintained the training regiment. Exercise is very important to her, as is being up to date in her research. She is a meticulous person and expects the same of her staff.
Asia can breath underwater, but not only can she somehow extract oxygen from water she can also filter poisonous gases, viruses, disease and even survive smoke inhalation. There is literally nothing she can't breath and not only that, she is able to hold her breath for up to three hours while at rest and an hour if performing vigorous activity. This 'BREATH CONTROL' naturally makes her very resilient, greatly enhancing her endurance and health. It also allows her to 'super-oxygenate' her blood. If she meditates and focuses for a minute or two she can super-charge her body for one specific action, breaking down a door, jumping further, basically doubling, even tripling her strength for a few seconds.
Doctorate of Molecular Genetics and Virology, accomplished swimmer and long distance runner, survival training, knows how to use a gun. Knows some basic self-defense. She like's to work-out on a bag so she has some punching and kicking techniques that she can utilize (but of course, taking a 'boxercise' class DOES NOT make you Jackie Chan).
Her native language in Russian. She can also speak Polish and German. Her English has a heavy Russian accent.
