Faultline is a powerful Epic who initially works for Steelheart. She is a thin woman who wears her hair in a bun.[1]

Attributes and Ability[edit]

Faultline has two second-tier abilities--moving softer earth and turning earth and stone into sand--which combine into a first-tier power. She is powerful, but fragile, as she has no prime invincibility.[2]

It is also known that Faultline can appear to make earthquakes, by softening the earth and pulling back on it, though it is never shown.[2]


Faultline was seen using her powers when she sent the First Union Bank deep underground by turning the earth into sand, and letting it sink. She also created a cushion of earth around the bank as it sank, ultimately protecting it.[2] Faultline later challenged Steelheart, attempting to take over Newcago. Steelheart dealt with her personally, and killed her.[3]
