Guardian Of Bast:

Guardians of Bast are individuals born with abilities blessed upon them by the Goddess Bast and intended to become guardians of a specific bloodline. They are usually, but not always, born into the Petrova family line to protect the living doppelgängers. The first known Guardian of Bast was Calliope, born five years before her half-sister Amara.

Jynx is the only one to have been born outside of the Petrova line, but instead born to the Gilbert bloodline, possibly because there was no longer a male Petrova to bred from.


Powers:

Animal Soul (Cat): Jinx has the soul of a cat, and while she is not a cat in a human body, her spiritual essence is cat-like in origin.

- Multiple Lives (Nine): Jinx is able to come back to life after being killed or fatally wounded. This is only limited to nine, just like a cat.

- Feline Empathy: Jinx has a strong affinity for cats. Feline species tend to flock to her, accepting her almost immediately, recognizing somehow that she is not an enemy but a friend. This allows her to calm injured cats, train them, befriend them, and form strong bonds with them. These animals will even sometimes come to her defense when she is attacked.

Enhanced Strength: With her body naturally evolved and conditioned to the peak of human physical potential and continually adjusting to various forms of damage, she can overpower full-grown humans with ease, able to hurl them with a single hand.

Predator Instinct: Jinx possesses predatory instincts, allowing her to become a master of hunting and tracking.

Enhanced Speed: Jinx is able to run over 60 mph and move with reflexes unobtainable by normal human beings.

Enhanced Agility: Jinx has remarkable equilibrium and coordination, greater than any human athlete. She is capable of scaling vertical surfaces with remarkable efficiency. She is maneuverable and graceful, able to pursue and outrun a target in various types of terrains. Her skills allow her to fluidly dodge and attack from different directions without losing balance. She is shown noticeable acrobatics, lunging from trees to attack her target.

Enhanced Senses: Jinx's senses are heightened to levels similar to various animals. She can track down and identify people through their scent alone, as well as to detect their presence within a large area through scent and sound. Her hearing is equally acute. She can see much further and closer than normal humans with perfect clarity, even in total darkness. Her senses enable her to sense when danger is near.

- Cat's Eyes: Jinx has the ability to change her eyes, her human-looking eyes become slit. Much like cat's eyes, Jinx's cat-eyes have a tapetum lucidum, which is a reflective layer behind the retina that sends light that passes through the retina back into the eye. While this improves the ability to see in darkness and enables her to see using roughly one-sixth the amount of light that humans need. These eyes seem to make her nearsighted, which means she can't see far objects as well. The ability to see close objects would be well-suited for hunting and capturing prey. In very bright light, the slit-like pupil closes very narrowly over the eye, reducing the amount of light on the sensitive retina, and improving the depth of field.

Naturally Enhanced Fingernails: Jinx has near indestructibly strong nails that always seem to be at stuck at the length of 1cm, in a neat stiletto top. She usually paints these black. Her pinkie finger on her left hand even has a small gold Egyptian cat charm hanging from the tip of her nail.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Jinx can heal and regenerate all physical harm to herself instantly. Any damage will be completely restored with no lingering side effects in seconds, even forcing objects embedded out to heal properly. However, she is still capable of feeling pain and enough harm can render her unconscious.

Disease/Contaminant Immunity: Jinx is virtually immune to all viruses, diseases, and most poisons or toxins. Only the most potent of chemicals and catnip will affect her and only for a brief period before returning to normal.

Enhanced Vitality: Jinx exhibits inexhaustible drive, willpower, and stamina, able to continue her exertions far longer than any normal human while showing no signs of weakening or exhaustion. She is highly accustomed to pain, able to withstand most levels of it while only slightly fazing her.

Environmental/Weather Adaptation: Jinx is able to survive and adapt to any environment or weather conditions without changing shape to adapt. Jinx is able to survive at any temperature without discomfort. She can wear minimal clothing in sub-zero temperatures without any harm.

Psionic Resistance: Jinx is highly resilient, if not immune, to all forms of compulsion.


Abilities:

Master Acrobat: Jinx is gifted with heightened acrobatic prowess. Her feats have been so amazing, one could argue that her athletic ability is somewhat superhuman.

Master Martial Artist: She is a dangerous, clever and resourceful fighter, known for precise, agile attacks and speedy getaways. Her formidable hand-to-hand combat skills are augmented by her cat-like speed, reflexes, balance, and flexibility. Jinx has mastered the following martial arts styles; Boxing, Capoeira, Hapkido, Jujutsu, Dragon Style Kung Fu and Karate

Stealth: Jinx is as stealthy as any large cat. She has easily been able to sneak up on large groups of people. She shows marked prowess in this ability.

Master Thief: Jinx has skills as a master thief, capable of using her abilities to break in and she does sometimes like to just do this for fun. Hardly one to knock over a bank, Jinx would rather break into the chairman's office and take his personal documents.

Weapons Training: Whilst in the Army, Jinx was trained how to handle a number of weapons, specifically firearms and knives.

Ballet: According to Elena, Jinx was a talented ballerina when she was younger.

"I have to admit... I've missed this. The adrenaline rush. The action. The knowledge that money stolen is always better than money earned"
