Member File: Sera Ash
Sera had been well on her way to finishing her medical degree when one night on the ER rotation changed her life. A seriously injured patient who had been involved in a gang shooting pulled a gun in the emergency room and started firing indiscriminately. Sera felt the bullets thud into her own flesh, but it was her friend Allie that absorbed most of her attention. Allie had been hit in the throat and was only seconds away from dying when Sera reached out her hand and a flash of green energy healed the worst of Allie's torn flesh.
In the weeks that followed, Sera was shocked to find that she was a mutant. The gene had never run in her family and she'd been so focused on med school that she'd never bothered to be tested. A long period of soul-searching followed but it was ultimately her mother who helped her decide to register as a hero. After all, her mother had said, her abilities could help far more people in Paragon City than she would ever see in an emergency room.
