About

Anastasia, alias the superhero Harmonizer, has a considerable amount of power over music. By using any musical instrument, (she uses a harmonica, hence the name) she can make anyone who hears it dance under her control... or, it's supposed to...

Ever since a traumatic experience at ten, her powers are wildly out of control and if she so much as blows a single note on her harmonica, people around her will get hurt. Badly hurt. So instead of using her powers, she trains in ninjitsu and uses that to fight crime instead. She won't use music at all, even in life-threatening situations, and this isn't something she'd tell anyone.

She is very friendly and insanely cheerful and loves talking to everyone (actual translation: being annoyingly talkative). Still, she really can be a bit of a jerk sometimes when angered, and if pushed too far, get violent. Fortunately, it rarely happens. She gets easily distracted, and she rushes into things without thinking most of the time. She's so full of energy, it takes a lot for her to get tired.

She doesn't actually stay in one place, but moves around cities fighting crime as a rogue hero. Venice is her favourite city by far.

She has one very dangerous weakness; she is easily manipulated. She also doesn't have any qualms about breaking the law, if she knows it would help people.

She used to be an enemy of SHUSH due to a terrible misunderstanding, but now, thanks to Agent Carol Torres and Director J. Gander Hooter, they have reconciled, but with a cost. She is getting increasingly terrified of her powers and hopes she doesn't lose control one day. 

Now, she is under house arrest, and thanks to Quiverwing Duck, is able to gain more confidence in herself to continue fighting crime and going on SHUSH missions to pay off her sentence.

She is also still helping her childhood friend and keeping him company when she realises what he'd become, and deals with the occasional crime that Darkwing misses out.

      Harmonizer frowned at Quiverwing, feeling insulted. "I'm not traumatised! I'm just worried for my very good friend! I don't get debilitating guilt from time to time or blame myself for not being there to stop Negaduck or curl up and cry sometimes!"

      She rolled her eyes at his explanation and was just about to comment something more grumpy when something else he said gave her pause. Then she smacked her fist on the palm of her other hand.

      "Ha! And Carol's been trying to get me to use pyjamas. Well, eef you can sleep een your 'ero clothes, then so can I!"

      Oh, she had no idea how way off the tangent she was...

        "I'm really okay," Quiverwing affirmed. "As I said, it was everyone else around me who suffered a lot of mental trauma. I did not; I knew the job was dangerous when I took it." He meant the whole arm situation, of course. The other stuff they had just talked about, that was a different matter and he was not revisiting that again.

        "I'd be happy to have coffee with you, or at least, I'll have the coffee and you can have cocoa, maybe. With your cookies." He spread his hands with a shrug. "I keep telling you, I do eat, but I don't do it for fun. It's like wearing pajamas to bed... fine for some people, but I personally find it pointless."

          Harmonizer put it away, but she cracked a smile and giggled. "I'd believe eet. You're terrible," she snorted and lightly punched his arm. Then stared at it nervously as if worried it would fall off.

          When it did not, she heaved a sigh.

          "So you are really okay?" she asked again, taking his shoulders. "I just want to make sure. I know you went through a lot of things."

          She hesitated, then started to grumble.

          "I was going to ask eef you wanted to 'ave a cookie with me at zat cafe, but you don't eat, do you. So... coffee eenstead? I mean, I'll eat ze cookies and you can drink your... dead bean juice."

            "I'm not gonna kill you, Harmonizer," said Quiverwing, trying to sound reassuring, although he also sounded a little exasperated. "I try to avoid killing anyone unless there isn't any other choice." Not every hero had a 'no kill' code, apparently.

            He did give the harmonica a thoughtful look once Harmonizer brought it out. "A last-ditch solution, only. I have a lot of ways to take someone down. They might not enjoy it, but they can not enjoy it while also being alive. Anyway, this discussion is a little ghoulish, I don't want you to think I have contingency plans on how to murder my friends just in case they go bad."

            That was true. Although Quiverwing Duck did have contingency plans on how to neutralize his friends using non-murder methods, should that need ever arise.

              Pouting intensifies. "I don't like bad surprises either..."

              She continued to look at him, hesitated, then spoke.

              "Uh... can I at least ask eef eet will kill me...?" she asked, lifting a brow. "Because I probably need to write a will... also maybe find Reggie a girlfriend and teach Gosalyn 'ow to properly throw a shuriken. I mean, I won't be responsible eef I'm dead..."

              How can she speak so lightly about possibly dying?

              Instead of looking offended or scandalised at his next words, she just looked sad.

              "Been there, done zat," she sighed. "Negaduck."

              No other explanation was needed apparently.

              "You know what... eef nothing else works, you can break my harmonica."

              The thought was terrifying her, but she kept the fear down and pulled the metal instrument out.

              "Eet contains a bit of my soul een eet... damaging eet een any way will stun me completely."

                Death blinked and gazed down at the cowering, frightened man. What happened? He was nothing but polite! This behaviour was usually reserved for when people came face to face with him- well, technically, Donald was looking straight at him, but he had...

                  Death tilted his head to the side, and then-  Oh no he was reaching for the defenceless duck, ready to rip out his very soul-!  Pet pet rattle.  That was the sound of magical floating bones on soft feathers.  "Very admirable....

                    The shrouded apparition continued to stare at Donald ominously, only his head moving to keep his gaze eerily wherever the duck moved.  "I was sent to pay you a very personal visit, Mr. Duck. How is your health, and the kids?"  The scythe...

                      Out the door stood a tall robed figure with the stench of death and decay, holding a large gleaming scythe.  "Donald Fauntleory Duck, I presume?" he spoke in a deep, rattling voice that seemed to echo around the duck's head.

                            "Eet's okay, I promise! I'm used to-" Harmonizer paused, then cleared her throat. "I mean, as much as I want to kick zat stupid 'orse's teeth een, you need to protect yourself sooner or later... I don't want you to get 'urt again," she said gently....

                              "Lexi, relax. Focus," Harmonizer told her gently as the children started to mimic them both... or rather, just her. "Look at what I'm doing and try to remember. To your left, then to your right, right again, then spin, left, down, up!" she finished...
