Just a bit over 5'7" she wears her natural red hair short. Quick Shrike has a small frame, some muscle definition thanks to taking her PT classes to heart and fair skin. Her expression tends to vary between bored and angry but occasionally she'll crack a smirk or grin at something she finds entertaining or funny. She also has a piercing in her lip which she always leaves in, whether out of costume or in, and tattoos on both upper arms, shoulders and across her upper chest.

Grace Memorial High School

Quick Shrike attends some classes at Grace Memorial High School but spends most of her "educational time" at a learning center with other troubled teens or "problem children". She only has one friend and that's the good-natured, unflappable and irascible custodian of the learning center, Kermit Chase, who she usually ends up helping clean up after hours as a form of detention. To date he seems to be the only person to not do so much as bat an eye at her tendency to use excessive foul language. He's also the only person outside of the Young Renegades to know her as both the teen heroine Quick Shrike and the troubled teen Stephanie Meyers.


Her first, and very short-lived team experience was with a young-adult group calling themselves Rocky Mountain Eyrie. Their first few outings went well but after it was learned that the leader of the group had been trying to sell Spice and Marijuana the team seized from drug dealers they parted ways, after a fight which left him in the hospital for two weeks before police could take him into custody. She has made every effort to put that disagreeable history behind her, including changing her heroic alias and moving to Michigan.

Skills and Equipment

Taking a childhood interest and an early passion for competition to the next level, she's a practiced and fairly skilled archer and utilizes that as the basis for her approach to crime-fighting. She's used three varieties of compound bow since starting as a vigilante, currently she uses a top-of-the-line bow given as a gift to her by her fellow Young Renegade Victory and an assortment of arrows with various payloads gained from the labs of her host and a former supervillain Death Ray.

She's also skilled with small firearms and rifles, thanks to her upbringing, but has recently disavowed the usage of them. This despite having saved lives by using them multiple times, because she's afraid someone innocent could come into the line of fire (again) and doesn't want to risk those consequences. She continues to use her knowledge to aid in crimefighting, and proper handling of firearms but refuses to use them herself any longer outside of a firing range.

She also has a full kit for repairing her bow, fletching arrows (although she normally buys the stock shafts already fletched) and a protective bracer.

Aside from her archery-related equipment Quick Shrike carries a two-way line-launcher, a set of lockpicks, a combat knife and her uniform which is resistant to bullets, knives and recently tweaked to be insulated against electricity, she wears a set of fingerless gloves to protect her hands but allow dexterity for the archery and a mask to help disguise her identity. Lastly she has replaced the sidearm she normally carried before with a customized nightstick which she uses when archery doesn't seem viable, especially in close quarters.

Apart from her fitness, knowledge of small firearms, practiced acrobatics and archery the only other thing that Quick Shrike has to call upon, herself, is sheer stubborn will, tenacity.




  • Soldier Boy - "I don't know how to feel about him anymore. First I thought he was cool, then I thought he was an asshole. Now...he scares me a little bit, and not because he's a badass, which he is."
  • Wavegirl - "I feel if I can trust anyone it's Mariana. She seems a little bit odd but honestly I wish I could be more like her. She can kick all kinds of ass. And she's an -amazing- artist..artisan?-she makes awesome stuff."
  • Victory - "I don't know. I wish I knew how to make things right with Lisa. She invaded my privacy, I was a b-no you know what, I can cuss -once- in awhile, I was a bitch to her and she deserves better from a friend. I hope she'll call me that again someday."
  • Devil Ray - "He has a big heart, I'm happy for him and Lisa. I guess with the way things are he's the closest thing to a brother I've ever had. Annoying, weird, frustrating but there when it counts."
  • Power Play - "Day doesn't go by I don't think about how I got him hurt. He forgave me on the spot but I don't know when I'll forgive myself. There's gotta be some way I can make it up to him."
  • Kevlar - "Mike's alright. Beerhound with a cool power, wish I saw it in action more, I think he could be pretty awesome with it."
  • Adapto - "He's the smartest guy I know. And his stuff is awesome. One of these days I'd like to go on one of those crazy adventures he's always talking about, sounds wild."
  • Powerbolt - "She's pretty cool and crazy powerful. Don't talk with her much but she's definitely good to have on the team."


Thoughts from people who've encountered Quick Shrike, yo

"Steph has some pretty serious anger issues. It can't be healthy to have that much pent up rage. She's a great friend, though, and I'm glad to have her on my side. I just hope she doesn't find a reason to shoot me with that bow." - Victory

"Stubborn to a fault, angry, a lot rough around the edges. Steph is capable, though, she knows what she's doing. I guess if she has to do it kicking and screaming, fair enough." - Soldier Boy
