Minerva

Team: Skull Crushers

Unique: #42 – La Calavera: These Uniques are the strongest, physically, of any Unique Soul. A baseline, D-tier Calavera has the potential to shatter an Earth with little effort, once awakened. Though all Calaveras have immense strength, they also tend to have a secondary ability associated with their name. Zeros that birth a Calavera are compelled to give their child a name that warns of their ability. Calaveras also have several ways to increase their strength. They may align themselves with a Celestial’s court and share the group’s strength. Calaveras may also choose another Calavera to be their rival; this bond works like a mentorship. The strength of the weaker Calavera grows to match its rival the more time they spend around each other.

Background: Minerva was accused of being a witch because of her supernatural strength. She was rescued by Chroma; she needed a Calavera to grow her own power and invited her to join the Chrome Court. Due to the events surrounding the Pineapple Cup, the Chrome Court picked up a bad reputation for a while. But, Minerva remained proud of her adopted family even when it caused trouble for her love life. After adjusting some settings on her dating profile, she met Ruin.

They clicked instantly and saw a movie instead of their first brawl. Though, their date was interrupted by Ballisea. After the interruption, Ballisea asked Minerva for a favor which led to meeting Frost. Then, she met back up with Ruin again to finish their date. When it was over, she met his derby team, the Green Tornados. Upon introductions, Minerva revealed she was with the Skull Crushers, An all-star derby team formed specifically to challenge the Green Tornados.

While waiting for the match, Minerva spent time with her sister, Ruby. While cleaning out a facility, they discovered Oren was still around; he was assumed dead after the match between SoundCrowd and the Conquistadors. Then some time later, Ruby asked Minerva to get Tim, after a meeting with Melody left her uneasy. Ruby decided to wake her mother up, but she wanted the afterlife taken care of first before Chroma could stop her. So, she sent Minerva to handle it in her place.

As a result of the Green Tornados winning the derby match, Minerva had permission to reveal the secrets of the Chrome Court to Ruin; but, his reaction was wholly unexpected. During a later meeting, Minerva stood by her sister’s decision to Chroma herself.

With the school year in gear, Minerva continued her daily life spending time with Ruby and dating Ruin. Then, things took a serious turn, and Ruin and Minerva announced their engagement. She wants to wear something special for her big day and asks for Chroma’s help. She’s also getting the materials she can get on her own; but, she always makes time to help.
