"Goddess" is the leader of a supervillain organization that rules over Earth Shin.
Due to having a full or nearly full connection with six shards, Goddess has an almost unheard of variety of powers. First is her most well known one, telekinesis; as a powerful long range expression of the ability she can presumably fly, have superstrength, and manipulate objects and people, given how Khepri used her during Gold Morning. Second, she has a Master power that lets her influence anyone in her vicinity, which allowed her to effectively turn her organization into a hive mind with her minions carrying out her orders.
Third, Goddess has a touch based Trump ability that lets her to tune abilities and defenses in a manner akin to Scion. It is unknown if the power effects only her or if she can alter other powers as well. Finally, she has a personal power battery she can tap to strengthen her abilities for limited amounts of time.
On December 19th, 2012 the Simurgh was sighted in Paris, though eventually driven off by Scion, the data file referring to the event specifically references "The Woman in Blue" and the "United Capes". It is unknown what connection, if any, ties into Goddess.
Goddess resisted Khepri's control after the Doormaker to open a portal into her council chambers on Earth Shin. She used her power to throw off Khepri's control over herself and the others in the room. Khepri attacked again with an enhanced version of Canary's song, and Goddess fell underneath the true goddesses sway. Khepri briefly wondered at the nature of her abilities and where she had come from before she directed Goddess to the battlefield.
Later, Khepri had Goddess stand alongside other telekinetics by portals and used her to move capes further, faster, or out of the way While fighting Zion. Presumably Goddess was unharmed or at least resistant to damage.
After Doormaker was left incapacitated and Khepri's subsequent loss of control, Goddess was stranded in New York completely at a loss over what was going on and shouting to find her compatriots. After Zion's death, Goddess went after the girl who had brought her into the fight flying around barriers and more. She looked on with silent fury as the girl who was Khepri was allowed to leave.
↑ 3.03.1I found another Earth with a mixture of capes, all incredibly beautiful people, all in what was obviously a global position of power. Every flag that flew in their world was the same flag, and the gauntlet emblem on that flag matched the icon on a particular woman’s costume. A blue costume, with white fur at the collar, and a heavy cape that would have done Alexandria proud.
I attempted to seize control of them as well, and the woman in blue resisted me. She spoke, and I lost my hold on everyone in her range. - Excerpt from Speck 30.4
"Alive. Four of them, anyhow. A fifth killed themselves because they couldn't fill the void where the power and the feeling of power once were. None of them were left with more than whispers of power after.... Goddess taking all the power brought an end to it." - Excerpt from Pitch 6.8
↑ 5.05.15.25.35.4An attack from two directions. She wasn’t immune, only resistant. I felt myself assert control. I understood her power, even if I didn’t understand a thing about her. A personal, point-blank trump power, allowing her to tune abilities and defenses much like Scion did. A powerful long-ranged telekinesis, a compulsion power like Canary’s, presence-based rather than voice based, and a personal power battery that let her be stronger, for limited times.
Where the hell had she come from?
No powers that really made her amazing against Scion, but it was an asset. - Excerpt from Speck 30.4
↑ 6.06.1Telekinetics stood by portals. The Blue Woman and Parian were among them. When I saw opportunities, I used them to move capes further, faster, to get them out of the way. [...] Portals opened wider, telekinesis pulling the attacking capes through if they couldn’t move fast enough. Forcefields and other measures flew up to surround Scion, mitigating the damage. - Excerpt from Speck 30.5
↑ 7.07.1"According to the PRT's most classified files," the man says, "This would be Earth Shin. Earth S for short. A Professor Haywire first raised attention to its existence. The number of parahumans are low in numbers on this alternate Earth, but they operate under a very subtle hive mind, all in allegiance to a Queen. For this reason, it is exceptionally dangerous for a parahuman to visit this world. They would quickly and inevitably fall under the woman's thrall."
"Obviously," the woman says, "We aren't parahumans, us three."
The man continues, "The PRT higher-ups remain aware of this threat, among others. It’s part of their reason for being paranoid about breaching other worlds. Part of what -we- do, my colleague and I, is study the threats and try to weigh viability and potential. This is a threat that our organization has decided to leave alone, because it has potential." - Lausanne RP
↑ 9.09.1refugees of Earth Shin say a parahuman took over their Earth a decade ago. one woman. she went back home to continue ruling them. - Excerpt from Glow-worm P.8
↑I created a portal, and I ensnared Canary, who was busy rescuing the wounded, flying here and there with her Dragonslayer suit, her arms full. [...] I brought her close enough to give her the benefit of the Yàngbǎn’s power enhancer. I had enough awareness of her power to know how to keep myself safe from it.
I tried again with these foreign capes, in this world where this blue-costumed woman ruled the world, portals feeding Canary’s song into their council chambers.
↑The uneasiness reached a peak. I gave them one final look, watching for any trouble, then took to the air, crouching on a forcefield. The members of my swarm followed, flying around any barriers I erected. A man in blue and white who zig-zagged around anything I put up. A regal woman in blue. [...] There was a small army after me now. Some were in the lead, and I made a point of blocking them, stalling with forcefields and directing ranged fire their way. The man in blue and white was chief among them, as was the blue woman in a regal costume. - Excerpt from Speck 30.7
↑Some were still angry, still looking for revenge. The woman in blue seemed more angry than protective, furious at me, silent as she was. But she had less backup now. - Excerpt from Speck 30.7
↑“What about the ones who are hooked into bigger groups?” I asked.
“That gets more complicated, and it’s less about the places to watch and more about the names to keep an ear out for,” my dad said. “Marquis, Goddess, Lord of Loss, Mama Mathers, the Crowley brothers, Deader and Goner, Barrow.”
I knew the names and I knew where they were situated. No big surprises there. I nodded to myself. Marquis. So casually mentioned. - Excerpt from Glare 3.5
