Powers and abilities
Elysius is an artificially created being patterned on and possessing some of the attributes of the Titanians, a lesser sub-branch of the long-lived offshoot of humanity called the Eternals. She has enhanced stamina, and her strength, speed, and durability are higher than that of a human, although she does not possess the ability to fly or levitate. She has limited telepathic abilities of an unrevealed nature. She keeps griffin-like creatures which obey her telepathic commands.
She uses an alien hand-weapon capable of disrupting force fields or of firing energy of an unspecified nature as bursts of concussive force. ISAAC crafted her personal sky-ship, which resembles an ancient Earth galleon but possesses the capacity of flight.
