There is nothing quite so special as to sip from the chalice of death. Sip, not swallow. To taste its sweet licorice on your toungue before releasing it back into the cup. Have you ever tasted something so sweet?

—Wingflare[1]


Wingflare is an Epic. She has incredibly strong telekinesis abilities. She is responsible for keeping the flying city of Lux aloft, as well as her massive compound.[2][3] Her real name is Shelly Sanders.[4]

Wingflare has bleached-white hair and artificial-looking skin, and often often wears pure white clothing.[3]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

Powers[edit]

Wingflare's telekinesis powers are so extensive that she can control individual bits of matter at will. She uses this power to fly, and to keep her hair and clothing completely motionless while in flight. It also allows her to stop bullets or sword strikes, which makes her very difficult to kill.[3] She is so powerful that she keeps the entire city of Lux in the air{book ref|lux|2}}, as well as her entire compound. She has great control over her abilities, and can move things very rapidly with great precision.[1]

Wingflare’s Compound[edit]

Wingflare lives in a large floating compound a little ways outside of Lux, which is comprised of about a dozen state capital buildings, kept in the air by her powers. Small floating stone steps form bridges leading to the each of the buildings, with the last steps slanted. Wingflare stocks the capital buildings with treasure, and enjoys watching people struggle and die trying to cross the bridges. She lives in the White House, which she has redecorated.[2]

Weakness[edit]

Wingflare’s weakness is people not playing games with her. As a child, she had a condition that made her bones extremely brittle and breakable. Her mother kept her from playing games with other kids. Because of her past, Wingflare delights in playing games with people, such as the bridges to the state capitals. When people defy her by refusing to play her games, it negates her powers.[1]

History[edit]

Childhood[edit]

As a child, Shelly was diagnosed with Osteogenesis, meaning her bones were brittle and breakable. Her mother was protective of her, and took away all of her toys that could get her hurt, like her skateboard and volleyball. Shelly’s mother didn’t let her join any sports. Shelly lied to her mother, saying that she had joined the chess club, secretly having joined the field hockey team at her school. She did really well, and became an excellent player. About a month later, Shelly got hit badly during a game, and broke over a dozen bones. After that, she was never allowed to play any games, lest she get hurt.[4]

Serving Lifeforce[edit]

Wingflare was specifically sought out by Lifeforce, granted immortality in exchange for keeping the city of Lux in the air. Wingflare participated in many raids on towns, using her powers to fly Ravens down from Lux to attack. At Arlington, Wingflare was hunting Zeff and Jax. When Jax escaped, she turned on Zeff. She told Zeff to run, saying if he ran fast enough he could live. When he refused to play her game, her weakness was triggered and she accidentally dropped a building on him. Later, she participated in the attack on Galveston, where Jax attacked her and stole some of her hair without her knowledge.

Trivia[edit]

  • Wingflare hates potato chips.[4]
