I changed her personality a little bit. She's less of a trickster as a civilian now and just a joker. She still likes magic tricks and pranks but does not do them herself unless she is in her disguise. [/EDIT]
why do i keep making OCs.

5'3, 115 lbsLeague:
To generate/bend light. She can light herself up like a flashlight (well, more like a ceiling light with a dimmer knob) by absorbing the light she's been in and bend the light that is already around her into mirages. She can absorb any light: natural, artificial, reflected, etc., but it will effect what kind of light she emits, as well. She can't create mirages in a too dark room (unless she creates light first, which would tire her out) and if she's been in a very dark place for 12 hours or over, she can't generate light (the longer it's been since she last absorbed light, the weaker her glow becomes). She can light up almost white, which is very blinding to anyone looking on and she often uses this as a distraction if ever in a fight. If she uses her powers too much (creates a lot of or some very large mirages, lights her whole body or even just one body part up as light as she can), she'll get a piercing headache and very fatigued, which also affects her personality and will often make her stop joking for a while.Weapon of choice:
Joke props she keeps in her pockets and her light/mirages. Works mainly from tricking people rather than actual fighting. Strengths:
Outgoing personality, optimism, being able to brush things off (people can't get on her nerves easily), cleverness, wide and bright places.Weaknesses:
Gullible people, a opening for a joke (no matter how serious a situation she is in, if she sees an opening she will fucking take it and be really inappropriately funny), not good at hiding, likes to be loud, doesn't really like fighting because she'd rather just fuck with people while other people do the fighting, dark places, being in the dark for too long. Likes:
Pranks, magic tricks, jokes, making people and herself laugh, food, family, talking, being around people, costumes, shiny things, daytime, sunlight, the full moon.Dislikes:
Darkness, being alone, silence, sadness, seeing sad people, hurting.Personality:
Polite and kind at first meeting. Quite outgoing. Once she gets comfortable with you she makes a lot of jokes and becomes louder. It takes a lot to offend her (mostly when people don't laugh at her jokes) and she's pretty much always smiling and laughing because she keeps herself entertained. She smiles and laughs to the point that when she's devastated, she is crying while smiling. When her powers are overused, this changes. Her head starts to hurt and she becomes tired so she stops smiling as much. If someone appears concerned for her she'll try to smile but it looks very weak. Background:
Claire was a normal child growing up in Stallin City with a slight obsession with magic tricks and comedy. She was not always laughing as she is now, but she definitely liked to. Her parents were fairly normal and she had a good relationship with them and her little sister, but they weren't anything really special. One day when Claire was about 11, her father was being promoted and he was invited to a fancy business party. There were a lot of rich people there and they couldn't really compare, but they all went in their nicest formal wear. In the middle of the party, all of the lights went out and they heard screaming that the party house was being robbed. In the pitch blackness, Claire and her sister were grabbed and covered by her mother--they were lost in the darkness. Flashes of light coinciding with gunshots began peppering the room, and their mother was shot over them. Because of her, they were safe (and their father had hit the floor and was also alive), but that event had given Claire a deep fear of the dark and hate for killers. After the funeral, Claire began watching more and more comedies to distract herself from the grief of her mother, and in turn, began becoming a comedian herself, to distract herself away from the television and to make her sister and father laugh, too. Her powers developed when she was 17 through stress from school, and she has had a long time to discover all of the things she could do with them. When she graduated high school, she moved into her own apartment, where she met Grey, who lived right across from her. When she heard about his cause, she wanted to join him to prevent people from doing what they did to her mother. She's also helping him room people in the league that need homes, so if he runs out of room you can always move in with Claire.Other:
She is a lesbian. Her girlfriend is Melody.
She's kinda messy, but she cleans whenever her girlfriend is going to come over, because she's a neat freak.
She only plays tricks on people to distract them in battle. She jokes a lot normally but she thinks tricks backfire too much.
Likes children, especially her little sister (who is 5 years younger than she)
Free is her roommate, Melody is her partial roommate (visits for a few days at a time occasionally), she has one more bedroom in her apartment and she'd probably let someone in the league live there if they wanted and she knew them well enough.
