Background/History:

The Takashimas were proud of their son. Hadn’t he been first in all his classes since he began school? He’d even passed the most difficult exams without resorting to juku (cram school)! Then he was accepted to MIT. That wasn’t as good as a good Japanese school, but…

Eiji enjoyed his time at MIT. He was nominally an electrical engineering major, but he could take whatever he liked as electives. He would frequently audit classes and surprise professors who looked for his name on the class lists at the first exam. Considering how well he always did, some students were VERY happy when they found out he was “just sitting in.” He also was involved in one of the great traditions of MIT students: the hack. The now-famed “Levitating Yale President” was entirely his doing.

After graduating magna cum laude, he easily got a job with a division of Matsushita. He cheerfully designed a large number of interesting toys. He loved his work. He immersed himself in his work. He became more trusted, and given other things to design and build. At first, he didn’t mind. But then they started getting stranger. When they assigned him to design a weapon, he decided to find out what was going on.

When the shooting was over, he’d learned that the division he’d worked for had been taken over covertly by VIPER, he’d been shot, developed a talent for making things quickly from spare parts, caused the building he worked in to be demolished, and been declared dead. To insure this, he turned to the only place to go in the underground of Japan. The Yakuza. His skills became invaluable, especially his talents with computers, security systems, and the paramedic training he’d had. As it was, they ended up owing him, as the local oyabun stated to his subordinates at a meeting.

He began dealing with the bakusozoku (biker gangs), after they’d started to become a problem in the area of Tokyo he lived in. He scavenged for components, gaining the name Gomi-no-sensei (Expert in garbage) for his talents in improvisation. After a while, the government located him and offered him a place on the newly-formed United Nations superteam, SPIRIT. When they mentioned the ALMOST UNLIMITED RESEARCH BUDGET, he agreed immediately. With the team, he participated on a number of cases, performed some memorable pranks (the “I Slept With Subdivisions” t-shirts made him a bundle, even if he did have to split it with Subdivisions) and the Mass Pieing of SPIRIT (which had some of them convinced they were targeted by CLOWN).

Eventually, however, he found out his parents were in some financial trouble. He left the team to return to Japan. He emptied his bank accounts, restored his identity, and split what was left. His parents recieved one-half of it, and the favor the Yakuza owed him insured they would be happy and safe for the rest of their days.

He worked for other, smaller companies again, doing more of his research, but invariably left due to a disagreement over methods. He was headhunted by a company in the United States, headquartered in Philadelphia. It sounded interesting, especially when he found out they had a superteam of their own. So he went.

Since then, he’s been instrumental in saving the world from the threat of the Collective Invasion, nearly died in an accident fighting the Pirate King, and killed one of Warstar’s minions with a lemon merangue-and-sodium-pentathol-in-DMSO pie to the face (he didn’t know she would die from the chemicals in her bloodstream).

He has recently suffered an accident that transformed him significantly. He’s now genetically female, five foot two, white hair, 34H-24-34. (Apparently the various DNAs that combined in him, which included white tiger and female, had a heck of an additive effect). As a result, she’s now referring to herself as “The Gadget Queen”, learning about what it’s like to be female, and generally being confused and confusing. Her parents are scandalized.

Awards Won: Von Boom Prize in Applied Mad Science, Tlamat Academy Aesthetic Appreciation Commendation, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (2010, non-cover), Gorgeous Ladies Of Science “Top Ten” 2008 – 2014 inclusive (magazine ceased publication), Philadelphia Magazine “Top Ten Companies To Work For” CEO.

Personality/Motivation: Formerly the consummate technical geek, the complete change in body has released interesting changes into her psyche. Still homosexual, the new lesbian concepts have become somewhat distracting. She’s taught herself how to act like a woman by power-watching soap operas like ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ . Once almost bipolar between reserved and manic with a new gadget or prank, she’s now outgoing and completely happy. Sometimes, though, when something that needs her full attention comes to her notice, she seems to snap back to the technologist personality, and seems to be almost unshakeable from her purpose.

Quote: “This could lead to excellence or serious injury. Let’s see!”

“I am going to punch you in the head until candy comes out!”

Powers/Tactics: THE single greatest gadgeteer on earth, her outfit contains a large number of spare parts she can assemble on the fly to create various effects. A few of them fit into sockets in the force field belt, giving it additional functionality – flight, leaping, or incredible strength.
