Information Edit

Description Edit

Even in her childhood, it was obvious that Sister Psyche was blessed. The tremendous scope of her mental powers was far beyond that of any hero, past or present. When the Rikti War descended, Sister Psyche knew she had to make her gift count. She did, but at a price. She exhausted her powers so thoroughly that she fell into a coma. A young heroine named Aurora Borealis offered to play host to Sister Psyche's projected mental self. Of course, this situation could not last forever. Now back in her own body, Sister Psyche has dedicated herself to helping to shape the tremendous gifts of the young Aurora. It's a responsibility she takes seriously, as well as a consolation for the loss of her former protoge, Malaise. When the psychic link between the two women was first disrupted, Sister Psyche lost her mental control over Malaise's dual personalities. The evil Malaise reasserted himself, and quickly made his departure. His present whereabouts are as yet unknown.

Note: Malaise is currently a member of the Vindicators, led by Ms. Liberty.

History Edit

Shalice Tilman was born with powerful mental powers. She used her psychic abilities to help defeat the Rikti. Her efforts during the Rikti War temporarily burned out her powers, and she fell into a coma. She shared the form of a young heroine, Aurora Borealis until she was able to return to her own body. Sister Psyche is one of the Surviving Eight, dedicated to helping Paragon City rebuild after the Rikti War.

Her previous sidekick was Malaise until her mind link with him was severed. Although Malaise had a brief episode of becoming a villain again, he is still a hero and a member of the Vindicators. However, Aurora Borealis took over his position as Sister Psyche's sidekick.
