DIANA PRINCE
WONDER WOMAN
AGE: Unknown
DOB: Unknown
ORIGIN: Themyscira
CURRENT RESIDENCE: Paris, France
PB: Gal Gadot
HAIR: Black

HEIGHT: 5'10"
COMPLEXION: Medium
Diana was born during antiquity, circa 3000 BC, on the shrouded isle of Themyscira. This is the home of the Amazons, god-like women given the power by Zeus to dispense justice in the world of men and after Zeus’ defeat at the hands of Ares, they retreated into seclusion in order to prepare and train for the next time that Ares would rise again. Diana was unique in this society of women, being the only child, and as such she was both cherished and over-protected.

Diana’s mother was Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons, and had always told Diana that she’d been formed from clay and a wish to the gods because she’d so dearly wanted a child. While Hippolyta was a formidable warrior in her own right, this was not the life she’d wanted for Diana and as such kept her sheltered and tried to steer her away from the martial society so prevalent on Themyscira. Diana, however, was curious and brave like any Amazon warrior and sought the training that she saw her older companions engaging in - even to the point of training in secret with Amazonian general Antiope against her mother’s wishes. Diana, above all, is curious and seeks knowledge and that extends to both the physical and the intellectual. While drinking in every battle stance, every weapon technique, every way of defending oneself and launching an attack that she could she also learned every language known to man and god and learned how to survive in every sense of the word. Her intelligence was unparalleled and her aptitude for learning new things excelled above and beyond all of the other Amazons on Themyscira.

When Diana was a teenager, her mother discovered she’d been training in secret and after a heated discussion with Antiope, allowed her to continue training. Diana was pushed harder than any Amazon before her - faster, harder, stronger, more punishment, more enemies. Diana was being prepared for a purpose and a war that she did not know the true magnitude of and Hippolyta, out of love, tried to protect her from the scope of it; Diana’s destiny lay far beyond the island of Themyscira and far from being shaped from clay, she was the daughter of Zeus himself and destined to destroy Ares once and for all.

Things for Diana progressed as life on Themyscira always did until a strange object began to fall from the sky one morning, fire streaking from it and smoke trailing behind. It splashed into the ocean beyond and, again, ever curious, Diana swam to see what had befallen her island home. She found something she’d only read about but never seen before: a man. Stranger still, this man claimed to have come from a world embroiled in a fiery war unlike that which had ever been seen before, sending up alarm amongst all the Amazons. Was this the war to end all wars, the rise of Ares once again?

This man brought with him others, those he called Germans, and a vicious skirmish broke out on the beaches of Themyscira between these Germans and their guns and the Amazons with their Classical-era weapons. While the Amazons succeeded in pushing them back from Themyscira’s shores, the world had been irrevocably changed: man had found them, someway and somehow, and their shroud had been pierced. The first man to have fallen upon their shore fought alongside them, though, standing shoulder to shoulder to Diana to help defend the Amazons and while casualties were heavy (including beloved general Antiope), Diana and her mother were safe.

Who was this mysterious stranger? Even application of the golden lasso of truth did not give the lie to this man, Steve Trevor’s, story and a decision had to be made. Hippolyta favored remaining hidden and keeping Themyscira isolated from the world of men as it had been for the last several thousand years. Diana, on the other hand, felt that it was their duty to fight and to champion men against what surely must be the madness of Ares inflicted upon the world. Against her mother’s wishes, Diana chose to aid Steve Trevor in escaping Themyscira only to be met at the docks by her mother, who granted her Antiope’s tiara and her blessing.

The world of men was a new one for Diana. Ever curious, she learned that women had less freedom in this new, “modern” world as they did in her home and people expected her to be quiet unless spoken to. That did not settle well with her, honestly, and in spite of being told not to rush into situations and to blend, to appear demure, to do anything to keep from being striking Diana did anything but. She was a bold slash against the dreary grey of 1918 London and in her quest to find Ares and end the war, she was relentless. While she was willing to aid Steve and abide by his methods to a certain extent, she was still headstrong and determined to do things her own way and to seek truth and apply justice in spite of the obstacles ahead of her.

When the English government will not fund a mission behind enemy lines in Belgium to destroy a cache of poison bombs, Diana and Steve take it upon themselves to form their own team and make their own way. They are secretly funded by one of the politicians that Steve works closely with but everything is unofficial, off the books and highly dangerous. None of this was a deterrent for Diana; danger was no object when people’s lives were at stake and while she’d never met the men, women and children who fought along the eastern front of the war, she felt for them all the same.

Upon arrival at the front in Belgium, Diana’s compassion is pricked by the story of a woman and her children who have been unable to receive aid due to the veritable No Man’s Land between the Allied and Triple Alliance forces and none of the men at the front nor Trevor’s men wish to risk crossing the field of battle. None of them wish to even try, which baffles and angers Diana, who feels that the strong must do anything they can to defend and protect the weak.

She takes it upon herself to cross the battlefield alone, using her bracers and her shield to deflect enemy fire so that the Allied forces can cross behind her. Her valor gives the Allieds a victory where they had been in a stalemate for years and forces Steve to look at her in a new light; the two of them share a dance and an evening together in the reclaimed Belgian city and Diana discovers the difference between compassionate and passionate love for the first time.

From this point on, Diana’s path diverges from that of her compatriots. Her aim is to stop Ares at all costs and while she originally thinks Ares is in the guise of a German general, it turns out that he is actually a British diplomat attempting to broker peace and the same diplomat who funded Trevor’s trip behind enemy lines. While Trevor and his team attempt to prevent a launch of dangerous, mask-eating mustard bombs from being deployed on Allied troops and civilians, Diana goes head to head with her half-brother, Ares, and finds her strength in love to be able to defeat the chaos of war.

The war takes from her the very first man she’s ever loved, Steve Trevor, but gives her a keen understanding of the world of men. Men are easily corrupted, they are prone to anger but they also have a goodness inside them that is worth saving. It is the drive to protect that good within humanity that keeps Diana on the path of truth and justice throughout the intervening years until the modern era, when she eventually teams up with Bruce Wayne and others to defeat Doomsday and defend the world once more from those who might wish to end it.

Diana is secretive and close with her heart when it is something deeply meaningful but those with a keen intuition can discern her secrets and know the sadness that she carries with her, the loss she has from the Great War, and even now she still has a photograph taken in a Belgian village on a wintry day, showing a group of unlikely heroes who fought against all odds to champion the cause of humanity over evil.

Timeline: After the events of 3x11, 'Conspiracy Weary.'
Canon Resource Link: wikia

Character History:

You mean back when I was alive?

Olivia Moore had, on paper, a perfect life. Well into her residency at the local hospital, her ultimate goal was to become a cardiologist, a top surgeon. She was the kind of resident who performed life-saving procedures on patients when she should have waited, saving lives and gaining a reputation for being a workaholic. At the end of each long day, being able to vent to her fiance, Major Lilywhite, the perfect, all-American guy, always made her refocus, despite the frustrations of work. They were three months away from being married and grossly in love. Liv's mother was doting, her brother looked up to her, and her best friend, Peyton, was the perfect roommate, the literal best friend, the other part of Liv's heart.

After a shift at the hospital, a fellow resident tries to talk Liv into going to a party on a boat that's supposed to be low-key and relaxing, a way to prove to her friends that her mind isn't one track when it comes to work. At first, she resists, but Major talks her into it with the famous last words: "What's the worst that could happen?" While she's at the party, there's an inexplicable zombie outbreak which is eventually traced back to a drug called Utopium, and she seems to be holding her own until a zombie (who we find out later is named Blaine, dealer of Utopium) scratches her arm. Liv wakes up in a body bag, unzips herself and runs away. Her once brunette hair turns white, and her skin is pale, grayish; dead but undead at the same time.

Liv Moore, psychic. Brain-eater.

After the boat party, Liv shuts out everyone; Major, Peyton, her family. They all think it's lingering trauma from the events of the boat party, they have no idea she's a zombie. For five months, everyone tries to start Potluck Tuesdays in an attempt to help Olivia come back to herself, worried about her abandoning her residency and instead taking a job at the morgue. Her engagement has been terminated, and eventually, everyone's left confused and frustrated by her actions. They think she has PTSD because this version of the person they love who used to be fiery and passionate, now just lays on the couch as if she's in hospice, unable to get motivated to do anything. When they start talking about getting her professional help, she promises to help with a haunted house at the hospital in an attempt to get them off her back. She simply has no idea how to live life anymore. She doesn't sleep because she doesn't need to. There's a sense of not being able to tell her family; who wouldn't completely freak out at 'hey, I'm a brain eating zombie?' She doesn't know what purpose she serves anymore or what the point of her own life is.

The job at the morgue, where she assists Ravi Chakrabarti, gives her access to human brains which she craves eating. The spicier the brains the better, as heat is the only flavor (other than brain) zombies can really enjoy. When Ravi catches her eating it's more of a relief than anything else. Someone else finally knows, and now she has an ally. At least once a month she has to eat, and eating brains is accompanied with visions of the deceased's life. Liv also can't help but take on the deceased's over-all personality. When she happens to eat the brain of a Jane Doe and the lead detective on the case (Clive Babineaux) has no leads, Liv has a vision of the victim being arrested in Canada for shoplifting. Ravi quickly covers for her, telling Clive that Liv is a psychic, and from there, Liv becomes his partner, having 'visions' that help him solve crimes. With some kind of purpose and a bit of a new outlook, she decides to try and reconnect with Major. However, by the time she does, he's fed up, explaining that she put him through so much, and Liv realizes she should double down on staying away from him.

It's during her first case with Clive that Liv realizes two things: One, she can't die a normal death. True, a shot to the head would kill her, but she's shot in the chest and doesn't die. She does heal completely, though, with an assist from stitches. The second is that when she's attacked or threatened, she goes into (what she calls) 'full zombie' mode. She growls and makes the raspy noise people are accustomed to hearing in zombie movies, she's super fast, and has super strength. At first, it seems like she can't control it, but as time goes on, she learns how, though she always needs some kind of aggressive stimuli (someone hitting her, typically) to get that way. A third realization comes much later - having sex with a human will turn them into a zombie and no amount of protection will keep it from happening. With no hope for a relationship with Major again, Liv begins dating a zombie named Lowell, her first romantic connection since the boat party.

The real mystery, what made Liv a zombie and how many others are out there, drives both she and Ravi. Even while she continues to help the Seattle PD, it seems their cases begin to lean more toward an entire zombie underground that now has a brain black market. Zombies want good visions, fun visions, and personalities completely contrary to their own. Together with Ravi, she finds out that someone is killing humans to sell their brains. Not having brains and starving makes normal, blending in with regular society zombies turn into the stark raving 'George Romero' types who have no control. Once you get that way, no matter how much you eat, you never go back to human-ish. Because of this, zombies are willing to pay for brains, no matter the price, and Liv (along with the help of Major) realizes Blaine is killing innocent people to keep up his brain supply. She also finds out Lowell is getting his brains from Blaine and decides to take Blaine out; yes they need brains, but not at the cost of innocent lives, some of them just teenagers. However, when it comes down to it and Liv has the chance to kill Blaine, she can't. That results in Lowell deciding to do it, but Blaine shoots Lowell in the head, killing him for good. Olivia is questioned but ultimately let go, and his murder is considered a suicide.

All of this eventually leads to an energy drink company called Max Rager and CEO Vaughn Du Clark. Though he's evasive, he realizes his energy drink mixed with Utopium is the cause of the zombie outbreak but decides to try and run a science lab to possibly weaponize zombies, not stop his product. When Liv gets too close to actually exposing his plans, he sends someone to her apartment to kill her, knowing she's a zombie. Instead, the goon attacks Peyton and when Liv get home she goes full zombie, murdering the man right in front of her best friend. Peyton, totally and completely freaked, abandons Liv. Meanwhile, Liv realizes Major is in danger because he's been trying to figure out the disappearances of some teens he'd been mentoring. He gets too close and finds the front for the brain supply chain, a butcher shop. When Liv finds him he's been stabbed and is nearly dead, so to save his life, she turns him into a zombie. Ravi has managed to come up with a zombie cure, one that she gives to Blaine in order to keep him from turning any more people into zombies (either to punish them or to be his enforcers), and one she gives to Major as well when it's clear he won't die. When it turns out the Lieutenant of the police department is a zombie as well, he arrives at the butcher shop to try and keep the secret about zombies in general from coming out. He blows up the entire establishment while Liv's brother is in the vicinity. He's severely injured and needs a blood transfusion, but because of what she is, and because she won't turn her brother into a zombie (she gave the only two instances of the cure they had away already, with no promise of more), she refuses to help him. All her mother and brother see is a selfish woman unwilling to save her own family and they effectively disappear from her life.

Three months later, Liv has a new roommate because Peyton is completely absent. Max Rager is still working their own zombie angle and hire Major to start killing all zombies out in the city as clean up - the cure he took gives him the ability to 'detect' other zombies. With no more zombies in Seattle, no one will ever know that the energy drink company is partially to blame. Around this time, after working for Max Rager for a little while, Major wants to reconcile with Liv, but she's so afraid of turning him back into a zombie that she can't. He knows what she is, he loves her anyway, but she cured him - she can't turn him back. There's also no more cure left as Ravi needs more Utopium to make it and supplies are severely limited. In all of this, Liv meets a man named Drake who used to be a drug dealer for Blaine but is now a zombie working for a crime lord that's trying to take down Blaine. Even though she's apprehensive about relationships, she starts one with him, letting herself get lost in it, letting herself really fall for him. When she finds out who he works for, she's devastated, but he goes missing before she can confront him about it. Only when everything at Max Rager begins to fall apart does she realize that there's a sub-basement full of zombies too far gone to ever come back. During an undercover op to try and shut down Vaughn for good, she finds Drake, full-on zombie with no coming back. She's forced to shoot him in the head before making her escape. When she, Clive, and Major are pinned down by brain-hungry undead, Clive finds out the truth about what Liv is and from then on he's in on what seems to be a bigger problem than they ever thought: Someone wants to turn Seattle into a zombie town.

Max Rager is shut down after Vaughn is eaten by zombies, and Liv and Clive start looking into a company called Filmore Graves. Peyton has returned by now and unwittingly uncovers that the man running for mayor of Seattle is a zombie. He works closely with Filmore Graves, and their plan seems to be to assimilate, encouraging zombies to spray tan and dye their hair to blend in with the rest of society. Liv can't think of anything wrong with that until she realizes the plan is to turn the entire human population into zombies, to make Seattle all zombie. The only thing Liv can't figure out is how. With the secret somewhat out regarding the existence of zombies, mass hysteria causes people to start spiraling with out of control conspiracy theories, zombies start turning up dead, and a reporter manages to take a picture of Liv going full-zombie during an attempt to rescue someone who was taken prisoner and tortured. The picture runs in a city tabloid magazine, and this is when she'll arrive in Wonderland, on conspiracy theorist brains.


Abilities/Special Powers: Liv eats brains. The brains give her the personality of whoever it was, and visions of their lives. I assume that Wonderland will provide her with food, but wanted to ask if it's okay to give her different personalities? The core of herself is still there. For example, at the time she arrives in Wonderland, she'll be a full on conspiracy theorist, questioning everything, paranoid, and reclusive. But she's still her with her own thoughts and feelings, and once the brains wear off in a couple days, the personality will fade until she eats something else. Ultimately, I think it would be amazing because one day she could be super into gardening and sunshine and happiness, and a month later she could be a daredevil trying to jump off the roof into a pool. If this isn't an angle (which is a huge part of her character) that can be played with, I understand!

Other abilities include superhuman strength and speed when she's in full-on zombie mode.

Third-Person Sample:

When Liv arrived in Wonderland, the rational part of her brain told her to stay curious but aware. Cautious yet optimistic. The part of her that was currently on the brain of a conspiracy theorist told her to trust no one, avoid the network, and question everything. It's hard to fight, but now, on day two, she's venturing out in a black hoodie, of course, pulled up over her head, trying to explore as inconspicuously as possible. Now that she's famous in the zombie underground for being front page news, she kind of wants to avoid the spotlight. She'd rather not be the poster girl for zombie rights, and that picture in the paper was completely unflattering, anyway.

Making her way downstairs, she looks around, realizing now that the mansion is a lot fancier than she'd first thought. Ravi would love this, he'd have all sorts of ideas about how it worked and Major would just call him a super nerd. Then Peyton would insist they all live together and it'd be kind of perfect. Liv misses them already, she hates not knowing what to expect from this place and being alone for whatever might happen. Most of all, though, she misses people who know about her, who know what she is. For five months she carried that secret alone, and it was terrible because she was making the people she loved miserable.

As she walks, the difference now, she thinks, is that no one knows how she used to be, so there's no one to disappoint. And with no one here knowing what she actually is, she's relatively safe. She's seen the zombie movies; people expect a specific thing at the word 'zombie' and she's not that, not as long as she has brains to eat. It seems like that magic closet has things under control, so for now, all she can do is try and figure out more about how to survive in this place. Passing a wall of mirrors, Liv's forehead creases because wow, creepy much?

The whole place is creepy, but at least no one knows what she really is.

First-Person Sample:

[ With the conspiracy brains wearing off, Liv finally feels like she can talk to the people of Wonderland at large, and she sets up a video, waving. ]

Huh. Just like home. This device, I mean. For a place that's some alternate universe or dimension, it has a lot of Earth-like qualities, wouldn't you say? I mean, there are people here from all over, right? Do you feel like your homes are accurately represented?

[ She has no idea where the hell that came from but it makes sense that Harley would be a 'this is America and I have rights' type along with everything else. ]

Anyway, I'm new, but I think I've figured out how things work. Mostly. The question on my mind is what do you do for fun?

[ She's gonna push right past this brain telling her to do anything but this: ]

I wanna meet people. Not be the type to just stick to her room until something happens. So, who wants to show me the highlights of Wonderland?
