"Ladies, Gentlemen, Children of all ages, Welcome to the Center Ring. I'm Highwire, and my life's like a Three Ring Circus."Celeste Thompson is a circus child who decided to put her trianing to use, first as a villain and small time theif, and now as a hero, under the guidance of Hermosa Vida.
Highwire is extra. Very extra. She's also just here to help. Despite her past and her lack of powers, she wants to do the right thing, even if she doesn't always know how. She also has allergies to Milk and Eggs.
Celeste is a white teenage girl with short, wavy blonde hair.
In Costume Edit
The superhero equivalent of a ringmaster costume. Black and red outfit, with a red jacket, a magical tophat for storage, and a lacey stylized black domino mask. Really Extra. Just, incredibly Extra.
Alternate Costumes Edit
At the start of her career as a villain, she got involved with Sam Carter i.e. Ringleader. As they continued dating, they became a theif duo who slowly evolved into spreading general chaos, along with stealing things.
When they crashed an upscale party to cause chaos (and grab some items along the way), Hermosa Vida intercepted them, and upon noticing their age offered them the chance to become heroes. Highwire agreed, Ringleader did not.
Afterwards, Highwire began small scale heroics, stopping minor crimes and other threats within the scope of her abilities, with some minor oversight from Hermosa Vida.
