- -- Husk
After her older brother Sam's mutant powers manifested and he joined the Hellfire Club, Paige tried many things to discover whether she was also a mutant, but became frustrated after many failures. Venting her anger, Paige finally found that her power was to shed her skin. She kept her nature secret until the day Sam visited the farm. After finding out his sister was a mutant too, he told about her powers to the White Queen, who decided to invite her.
Soon enough, Paige became convinced of the Hellfire Club's actions, admiring the Inner Circle and even thinking of Sam as a traitor after he left. She also tried to convince Jay to join them, but she failed.
Powers and Abilities
Husk is a mutant, who underwent a Secondary Mutation cursing her with personality swings and seemingly jamming her powers, allowing her to stand multiple textures at the same time, including fire. Those powers and personality swings seems related, as she was able to change personality just by shedding her skin.
Transitional Omni-morph Husking: a Transitional omni-morph. She has the mutant ability to shed her outer layer of skin and reveal a new layer or shape underneath. While she can sometimes acquire new forms, Husk has been able to shift into anything that does not exceed her body mass. Any extra mass left when she shifts into a smaller form such as an insect or a bird is shunted into an unknown extra-dimensional space, and will return to Husk when she resumes her human form, Paige most commonly takes on a Paige-like form in a new material, and much prefers to do that. She can become any solid that she has studied and can imitate adamantium, diamond, granite, wood, rubber, brick, even glass. She has the capability to blend in with surroundings, but in order to do so, she would have to study the texture she seeks to mimic first. She is able to shift into liquid substances, including complex acids capable of affecting organic steel. Husk also has the ability to change only part of her body (such as changing a hand into a bladed weapon). When Paige morphs into a different layer, she often takes on new physical abilities or qualities, such as increased weight, strength, or invulnerability. She can husk away minor injuries, but deeper ones will stay with her. She can hold a form for about an hour before she needs to revert back to her original form. She can morph repeatedly and is not required to stay in any one form, but too many transformations can become very painful. In great stress or trauma, Paige can shed without control, revealing patchwork forms. When Paige ‘husks’, she often sheds her clothing as well. This has the unintended side effect of leaving her nude when she returns to her normal form.
Husk is adept at the programming and operation of computers. Gifted intelligence.
Insanity & depression: For a few months, Paige proved to be psychologically unstable, with gradual physical evidences due to her mutation, first molting and now combining multiple multiple skin forms simultaneously. It was later stated that those blackout and personality swings were due to a Secondary Mutation.
Equipment: None known.
