Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #28: The Photon

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

VABI tries to be a low key operation. We don't want to rule the world, just aid those who might want that. We don't want headlines, we want profit. So we like operatives like the Key Men, or the Telemen who can operate with little fuss or muss.

Sometimes though you need to have the big dogs.

When we need massive property destruction or to take out some one who is supposedly invulnerable we like to call on the services of The Photon. Lydia Lee was 13 when she first started getting visions. She was 16 when the visions started leaking out from her. Lydia is channelling the power of a sentient star, in this case Alpha Cigna 12. Alpha Cigna is interested in earth and humanity and uses Lydia to experience things as mundane as how a pizza may taste. Lydia on the other hand can channel the raw power of a star and can create beams of energy that can render most forms of matter into nothing at all. Overall, they are a good team though sometimes they have their problems. Also, Lydia's sanity has suffered a bit and now she is taking medication for schizophrenia.

VABI uses her sparringly, but when we do it's generally a fairly final solution to any problem. VABI is also monitoring her mental health closely. The idea of her going hopelessly insane is frightening even to us.
