After losing her parents in a car crash at a young age, Faith Herbert was raised by her loving grandmother. The young Faith found solace in the fantasy worlds her parents had once shared with her – comic books, science-fiction movies, the T.V. shows of Joss Whedon, and nerd fandom filled her life.
Eventually, Faith thought she had found the secret to becoming a real superhero when she was approached by the Harbinger Foundation. There Faith met Peter Stanchek, another powerful psiot the Foundation had recently recruited. Utilizing his ability to activate other latent psiots, Peter unlocked the potential within Faith, giving her the ability to fly. Flight, plus the ability to generate a companion field around nearby people and objects, carrying them telekinetically along her flight path.
Recently she’s delved into utilizing it in a psychokinetic fashion such as for shielding, a battering ram, manipulating internal mechanisms, e.g., unlocking a door or moving people/objects around without physical contact.
