Karen X lacks the skills to handle everyday emotions. When faced with a complex emotional issue, she seems cold and uncaring to those around her. Most people can pick up on this easily.
- Anger: The character is driven to overcome challenges and exceed their limits.
- Insecurity: The character feels as though they don't measure up to their peers.
- Enemy: Karen X is the avowed enemy of Karen 7, the unit which was to have replaced her.
- Vulnerability: The Karen X unit is considerably heavier than most people and has to be constantly aware of this.
Karen X was the sixth Karen android created by Doctor Herbert West, a brilliant if somewhat unbalanced inventor and engineer, who was well known as a weapon designer for both the government and a number of posthumans during the 1960s through the 1990s. The Karen units were based on a military prototype West had been developing in the mid-1990s. The unfortunate death of West's daughter in 1996 in an automobile accident marked the end of West's professional career. He withdrew from the world and devoted the remainder of his life to the Karen Project: an attempt to create a perfect, immortal receptacle for Karen West's stored memories and personality.
While Karen 6 was more lifelike than her five predecessors, Dr. West was disturbed by Karen 6's lack of empathy. He was working on Karen 7 when a misaligned induction array exploded, killing Dr. West and destroying his laboratory. As Karen 6 watched the laboratory burn, she chose a new name for herself: Karen X. Since then, Karen X has roamed the world learning, improving herself, and destroying anyone who stood in her way.
Powers and Abilities
Like her predecessors, Karen X was created using an experimental skeletal combat chassis, composed primarily of Grade 5 and Grade 38 titanium alloys with some carbon fiber structural members. The combat chassis has increased lifting capabilities, reinforced sub-dermal body armor, and a highly responsive fiber-optic control system: combined, these systems give Karen X strength and speed well beyond anything attainable by human beings. Karen X was originally equipped with a number of weapon systems, and she has continued to refine and enhance her offensive capabilities. In addition, she possesses an array of enhanced senses, enabling her to perceive wavelengths of light above and below those visible to humans.
As a synthetic being, Karen X is immune to most environmental hazards which would endanger a human being. She is unaffected by heat, cold, poisons, pathogens, radiation, and vacuum.
