|Name:||Saturn Girl (Imra Ardeen)|
CODE OF HONOR: Live up to ideals of the Legion; Be a public example of responsible telepathy; Never use powers to control others or violate privacy without due cause
BACKGROUND: On Titan, the only inhabited satellite of the planet Saturn, most of the population has metal powers. Imra, however, is believed by most to be the most powerful natural telepath of her generation.
She came to Earth to finish Science Police training, but instead became one of the three founding Legionnaires. U.P. society has a certain amount of prejudice against telepaths, who are forced to display an image of the planet Saturn when among non-telepaths, to warn of their abilities. Imra see's herself as a sort of ambassador for Titanian telepaths, and adopted the name "Saturn Girl" as a direct confrontation of popular prejudice.
A naturally inquiring mind, combined with her ability to learn almost anything virtually instantaneously, makes Imra one of the more scientifically astute Legionnaires. Only Invisible Kid and Brainiac 5 can even approach Imra's breadth of knowledge (although she has nowhere near the depth of knowledge of the other two in their respective specialties).
When she was a child, Imra's mentor, the master-telepath Aven, placed mental blocks on her powers for her own protection. Those blocks have only recently been released, and Imra is only beginning to realize what the full scope of her abilities is. Although she went through a period of dangerous instability when her blocks fell (during which she subconciously manipulated the emotions of her fellow Leginnaires), she now appears to have full control of her enhanced powers.
Although she refused to face her feelings for some time, Imra has recently confessed her love for the utterly devoted Garth.
Schooled since infancy to control her emotions, Imra can appear cold and haughty to those who don't know her (her attitude is particularly brusque when she's confused or under stress). Her closest female friend in the Legion is her boyfriend's sister Spark (despite some past tension when Ayla suspected Imra of toying with her brother's emotions).
She has one sibling, a younger sister named Jancel, who's acutely jealous of he attention lavished on her older sister (unfairly so, since Jancel has never had to face the punishing training Imra has been coping with for her entire life.)
