Raquel Ervin is a 15-year-old girl who lives in Paris Island, the poorest, most crime-ridden neighborhood in Dakota.  She met Augustus Freeman IV, a corporate lawyer who was secretly a stranded alien with superhuman powers.  She wears a belt that Icon fashioned out of his escape pod’s inertia winder, which allows her to manipulate kinetic energy.
