Victoria Dallon is the daughter of Mark and Carol Dallon, the adopted sister of Amy Dallon, and a member of New Wave.

PersonalityEdit

Victoria is a hot-tempered and prideful cape. Her strength and protective force-field have made her particularly cocky and arrogant in combat. She enjoys fighting and is prone to using excessive force on her enemies.

AppearanceEdit

Victoria is a tall platinum blonde young woman. As Glory Girl, she wears a white one-piece dress that comes to mid-thigh with shorts underneath, an over-the shoulder cape, high boots and a golden tiara with spikes radiating from it.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Glory Girl and Panacea by aerryi

Victoria has the classic Alexandria package of flight, invincibility, and enough superhuman strength to dead lift a ton.[3] She also radiates an aura that makes her allies more inclined to respect and look up to her, while making her terrifying and intimidating to her enemies.[4] Victoria's invincibility and strength is the result of an invisible forcefield that extends a few millimeters over her skin and clothes.[2] She could take a direct hit from Scion.[5] It does, however, need to recharge for 1 to 2 seconds[4] after it receives a heavy impact, or after a few seconds of sustained fire (such as a beam or jet of water.) Even a strong punch can be enough to trigger this effect, and it takes longer to recharge after holding off a sustained hit. Her own super-strong punches and kicks cause it to flicker off and revive.[6] Her strength is primarily generated through the forcefield,[1] and operates through a similar mechanism to Manpower's,[1] of which her Shard is a bud.[7]

The energy Victoria radiates makes anyone within her presence feel an emotional charge of awe and admiration. For those with a reason to be afraid of her, it is a feeling of raw intimidation instead. She has displayed the ability to ramp up this energy to increase its effects or tone it down in order to decrease it. She can dial it up and down, but not fully switch it off. This power is considered a Shaker ability[1], not a Master power.[8] Long term exposure leads to severe consequences.[9] She gained this ability by triggering while she was near Gallant.[10]

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Victoria triggered when she was fouled in a basketball game.[11][12] When she jumped to make a shot, another player slammed into her mid-air.[13] She began to date Gallant before the story began.

Story StartEdit

After spotting a thug guilty of assault, Glory Girl whooped and landed in a practiced motion before she gave him a head start as he bolted. She caught up to him quickly, told him the name of his victim and said that she would catch him if he tried to run. When he denied doing anything, she used her power to intimidate him, grabbed him by the collar, and lifted him into the air, above a dumpster. She then threatened to break his arms and legs if he didn't tell her everything. He swore at her and she threw him.[2]

Glory Girl worried that she had killed him before she spotted him moving. She asked if he was ready to talk only for him to try limping away. Angry, Glory Girl kicked the dumpster and sent it towards the man. After it hit him and the man didn't get up, she checked his pulse, found the street address, and then called her sister for help.[2]

She participated in the battle against Leviathan.

Post-LeviathanEdit

With her father hurt and her boyfriend Gallant dead, Victoria was left adrift, unable to gain emotional support from her sister who was dealing with her own issues.[12]

When the Slaughterhouse Nine arrived in Brockton Bay, she was horrendously injured by Crawler's venom.

Post-Slaughterhouse NineEdit

Confronted with an impossible amount of stress, Panacea suffered a breakdown and made Glory Girl reciprocate her love. She forgot how to put Glory Girl back together and, in trying to heal her, warped her into a mass of flesh made of the body parts Panacea found most appealing.[12]

Glory Girl was placed in the Parahuman Asylum, where she was treated by Jessica Yamada and communicated through blinks.[14]

Golden MorningEdit

Glory Girl fought in the final engagements of Golden Morning, and was last seen in Worm reunited with her sister.[15]

TriviaEdit

  • Glory Girl was a protagonist in an early draft of Worm titled "Guts and Glory" alongside Panacea.
  • Glory Girl appeared in an early draft of Worm titled "Myriad" where she assaulted Skitter during Skitter's first outing as a cape on the assumption that she was a villain. Glory Girl paid for this mistake, however.
  • Her shard is derived from Manpower's, but she does not have a Breaker rating like he does.[16][17]

  17. I think that was way, way back when the wiki was new, probably a leftover error when I copy/pasted from elsewhere.

    I wouldn't take anything on the wiki as being accurate, tbh. - Wildbow admits he made a mistake
