Group Affiliation: Zodiac; head of her own criminal organization; frequent partner of Scorpio; allegedly formerly the US Navy.
Base of Operations: Detroit, Michigan.
History: Very little is known about the past of the woman calling herself Capricorn. There is circumstantial evidence to suggest that she is Dawn Fury, the younger sister of noted CIA field agent Nick Fury and the professional criminal Jake Fury, more commonly known by his costumed alias, Scorpio (see Fury, Nick; Scorpio). If Capricorn really is Dawn Fury, then the following is true:

Dawn Fury is the youngest of three children who grew up in Hell's Kitchen, in Manhattan. Both of her brothers entered the US Marine Corps when they came of age in an effort to get out of the Kitchen. Idolizing her brothers, Dawn enlisted in the Navy, intending to follow intheir footsteps, but was discharges a several years later under the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy when she was caught in a lesbian relationship with a fellow sailor. Her whereabouts since her discharge are unknown.

Not long after Dawn's discharge from the Navy, a new player appeared on the scene in the Detroit, Michigan, underworld. This woman, calling herself Capricorn, rose to become the leader of the city's organized criminal cartel, often by killing the other leaders and acquiring their operations. It is believed Capricorn was mutated into her present form by the Zodiac's scientists prior to making her move to control the crime in Detroit (see Zodiac).

Capricorn has been seen many times working closely with Scorpio, often deferring to his judgment and leadership. During the Zodiac's attempt to hold the island of Manhattan hostage, using a force field powered by Scorpio's Zodiac Key, Capricorn was openly critical of the plan and sided with the rogue faction abandoned the plan as the city's superhuman adventurers and crimefighters mounted their final combined assault against them.

While there is evidence pointing to Capricorn being Dawn Fury, there is also evidence to the contrary. First there is her relationship with Scorpio, which has at times seemed more romantic than familial. Also, a woman matching Dawn Fury's description was seen in Manhattan during the Zodiac confrontation, though it is unknown if that truly was Dawn.

Role-Playing Notes:
Capricorn is ruthless in pursuit of her goals, and doesn't suffer foolishness easily. The only person she has shown any deference to is Scorpio.

Design Notes:
1. Organized Crime Rank is built at 2/level as per the guidelines on p. 15 of Social Engineering. It does not add to Status.
2. Skills calculated with DX set to the lower number; increase all skills by 4 when spending FP to increase DX to 18.
3. I'm intentionally leaving it vague as to whether she is Nick and Jake's younger sister. In my mind, yes, she is; however, in any game, LMDs can always be involved.
