Rime is a member of the Los Angeles Protectorate. She succeeded Alexandria as team leader there.

PersonalityEdit

Rime is highly professional, controlled and taciturn, with a rigid, businesslike manner. Weaver speculates that Rime's frosty demeanor might have been linked to her development of ice-based powers.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Rime has black hair and wears a blue skintight costume with trimmed fur on the collar.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Rime creates and throws "ice fractals" that she could control the path of and expanded explosively on impact.[3] She can predetermine the size and shape of these glaciers, to such ends as forming ice armor or walls.[4]

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

She seemed to have her trigger event relatively young.[5]

Post-Slaughterhouse NineEdit

Rime was deployed against Echidna under Chevalier's command, using her powers to contain Echidna and the clones in ice.[6]

Post-EchidnaEdit

After Alexandria's incapacitation, Rime took over as team leader of the Los Angeles Protectorate and second-in-command of the new Protectorate, a position she would fill in life for two months and posthumously for almost two years. She also supervised the Wards' fight against the Adepts via earbud.[2]

Rime participated in a fight against Bambina's team alongside members of various Protectorate teams, including her own. In the ensuing confrontation, she was shot three times by the Number Man and was forced to encase herself in a column of ice after failing to make headway against her assailants.[1]

She died in the battle against Behemoth at New Delhi after attempting to encase his surroundings and body parts in ice.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • The word "rime" refers to frost formed on cold objects by the rapid freezing of water vapor; to rime an object is to cover it with such frost.
  • Despite speculation, Rime was not part of the inaugural Wards team.[7]
  • Her shadow as seen by Chevalier was of her younger self, hiding her face.[5]
  • Rime is considered one of the top heroes in the protectorate.[8]

    Taking over for Alexandria, I thought. A cape with black hair in a blue skin-tight costume with fur. I recognized her from the Echidna event, the cape who made ice crystals. I remembered how she’d been following Chevalier’s orders. His second in command? It made sense he’d promote someone he knew to the second largest team in America.Drone 23.1

Bambina is accompanied by Starlet and August Prince, um. Shooter’s shots ricochet. Can’t dodge. There’s wounded just outside craft. Traffic caught underneath when you fell.”

    “Stop talking and get inside,” Prefab said.

    “Can’t close the gap to the Kulshedra without getting shot again. He’s cutting me off.”

    “Use crystals to form a wall, get inside, damn it,” Prefab said.

    “Ricochets,” Rime stressed. “I- shit!” - Excerpt from Drone 23.2

    Wildbow: Nah. Legend in front, Alex and Eidolon to the left and right, respectively. Then Myrddin, Chev, Cinereal, Narwhal, Rime, Exalt, Armsmaster, Dragon suit silhouette in the background, wings echoing the wings of the PRT logo over their heads. - IRC conversation archived on Spacebattles
