Citrine is a member of the Ambassadors.

Appearance:Edit

Citrine is a young, blonde woman. She wears a goldenrod yellow evening gown with a gemstone studded mask, along with yellow lipstick[1]. Her mask was yellow as well, and Taylor recognized the gems studding it as her namesake gemstone - citrines[2].

Accord considered her a "beauty". She dedicated an hour every morning to caring for her skin, another hour to her hair, which was "immaculately styled"[1]. Taylor referred to her as "pretty"[2].

When deployed to New Delhi she is explicitly referenced as having thrown off her elaborate gown costume for a more practical bodysuit. Implicitly for ease of movement.[3]

Personality & RelationshipsEdit

Accord referred to her as his "best Ambassador"[1]. Taylor suspected that she had a similar personality to Grue - they were both "professionals"[2]. Citrine led the Ambassadors in battle, even when her power was ineffectual[4].

She assessed the Undersiders as a threat based on their track record, disagreeing - politely - with Othello[1].

Taylor believed that she wasn't Grue's "type". Nevertheless, it bothered her that she didn't feel jealous of the time he spent with her[2].

It was implied in his interlude that she was attracted to Accord[1].

Abilities and Powers:Edit

Citrine's power allows her to "attune areas to particular functions"[2], altering specific properties within an relatively small area.[5].

She can interfere with gravity, temperature variation, friction, light intensity, and the progression of time, among others. She claimed that there were "more possibilities than I could count, many so minor you wouldn't notice."[2] She could use her power to make everything within a given area effectively waterproof[4].

Most notably, Citrine can "find the right attunement, as though I were searching a radio station" to neutralize a given parahuman's abilities. Furthermore, she can specifically cancel out protective powers, or cause powers to go out of control. This latter effect never takes more than twenty or thirty seconds[2]. She risked striking the wrong attunement and accidentally killing her target[4]. Further some powers are too subtle to find out in time before she is retaliated against, or have the subject step out of her range.[5]

Citrine's power is accompanied by a golden glow.[6] Everything within it's area of effect appeared washed out, as if viewing it through colorblind eyes that were capable of only seeing yellow. [4]

History:Edit

BackgroundEdit

When talking about the type of people who sought out accord, she implied she was the type that had power and sought more.[citation needed]

Post-Slaughterhouse NineEdit

Under Accord, she helped to watch Blasto in his lab[7], and was one of only two ambassadors to survive the raid by the Slaughterhouse Nine.

Post-EchidnaEdit

She accompanied Accord to a neutral meeting of all the villains in Brockton Bay[1]. Afterwards she agreed with Othello's assesment that the ambassadors could deal with any individual group but not more.

Accord sent her to inform the Undersiders that the Ambassadors would be "recruiting" five new parahumans - by which he meant purchasing five vials from Cauldron for his five highest unpowered lieutenants. She admitted that she was also a Cauldron cape[2].

She led the Ambassadors alongside the Undersiders against the Teeth[4]

New Delhi Edit

During the battle with Behemoth, she helped suppress his sonic attack[6]. This extended to several other effects the dynokinetic monster used against the defending forces. She was not able to counter all of the Endbringer's attacks however and eventually had to withdraw from the battle, due to exhaustion.
