Power Description
Telepathy
The prolegomenon of Delia's transition from ordinary to extraordinary; prematurely manifested due to a near-death experience involving a tipped-over school bus when she was just six years old. Even after three decades of practice, she is predisposed to intense fatigue and crippling migraines after extended periods of use (which, for her, runs anywhere between two and three consecutive hours). However, she has a much better handle on it than she does her secondary power, and it's very existence is the reason she decided to delve into the world of municipal politics in the first place.

Telekinesis:
A recent continuation of Delia's psychic prowess. Unfortunately, it remains something she has yet to properly master; requiring a level of intense concentration, focus, and mental effort that she does not currently possess. As such, it tends to present itself when she is at her most vulnerable, emotionally speaking. Which is to say, heated arguments at work have resulted in flickering lights, slammed desk drawers, and on one particularly hostile occasion, a bombardment of fountain pens that lodged themselves into her office door after chasing a local administrator away.

Animal Description

Appearance

  • Embodies the phrase "Business Chic" with bespoke suits, silk blouses, and shapely pencil skirts during office hours.
  • Tones it down several notches when she's out and about, although she still emulates an air of dignity when she's donning denim jeans and henleys.
  • Forgoes flats for shoes with heels on them in a subtle effort to hide her short stature.
  • Possesses multiple stick-and-poke tattoos, all of which are relatively small and usually hidden from view.
  • Surprisingly fit, with toned abs and defined biceps.

Personality

  • A practical, diligent, and intelligent woman overall.
  • Which equates to an analytical, overcritical perfectionist in reality.
  • Her goal is to be perfect in everything that she does, and she gets extremely frustrated when she sees that that is not possible.
  • Possesses the need to over-analyze situations and holds a very critical eye of herself, along with everyone else in her life.
  • Said critical eye is the reason behind her easy frustration and, sometimes, very short temper.
  • Tries to see the very best in everyone, which causes her to get extremely pissed off when people prove to be less than upstanding.

History

  • Derives from two prominent psychic bloodlines, both of whom have resided within the Greater Cordova Metropolitan Area for several generations.
  • Her father, Arthur Charles Rochat III (Better known as Charlie), comes from a long line of telepaths whose lineage traces back to Switzerland. The first Rochat to emigrate to the states was his great-great-grandfather (and therefore, Delia's great-great-great-grandfather), Basile Rochat, who arrived through Ellis Island as a young man in the mid-1880s and then ventured to Northern Colorado via the continental railroad, where he settled down on a ranch within the outskirts of what would become Cordova, and then proceeded to make a metric ton of money by befriending a number of wealthy ranchers and using his psychic prowess to his financial advantage.
  • Delia's mother, Astrid Nygaard, is the youngest daughter of a prolific telekinetic, Ingrid Nygaard, whose own lineage originates from Norway and Denmark via her parents, Erik Nygaard (the grandson of the first Nygaard to settle within Cordova) and Margarethe Søborg (the daughter of Danish immigrants who found their fortune in Colorado's mining industry). According to family legend, Margarethe was a powerful telekinetic, while there's a good chance that Erik was a mimic. However, no one knows for sure, as Erik left Cordova for greener pastures in the form of a voluptuous Mexican woman named Viviana, and never bothered to maintain a relationship with his daughter. Not that Ingrid complained, since, in the end, it meant that she was the sole inheritor of her mother's familial fortune.
  • While the development of Delia's powers was to be expected, the age at which the first arrived wasn't. During a school trip to Yellowstone, when she was in first grade, her bus flipped over several times after swerving off the highway to avoid a wayward stag. Aside from a few bumps and bruises, Delia and the rest if her peers were fine. Except Delia's telepathy was somehow triggered in the aftermath - far earlier than anyone else in her family had gotten their own abilities.
  • Her telekinesis, on the other hand, wouldn't rear its head until twelve years later; during a rather excitable time in her life, when she was still in college. It isn't something that she would ever admit to now, of course. But it involved two other young women, a ridiculous amount of alcohol, and a game of strip billiards none of them would ever forget.
  • Needless to say, between the Rochat family's cattle barony and the Nygaard (or to be completely accurate, Søborg) family's mining dynasty, neither Delia nor her two sisters ever had to want for anything. They grew up within their father's ancestral home (a Tudor Revival style mansion that was custom built by Charlie's great-grandparents during the Gilded Age), with platinum-plated spoons in their mouths and an endless string of nannies at their disposal.
  • Of course, all the material items in the world couldn't make up for the general lack of love and affection within the house. While Charlie and Astrid were far from neglectful, providing their daughters with everything they could ever need, social and occupational obligations assured that they were often away from home. Meals were prepared by personal chefs, bedtime stories were read by hired nannies, and school plays were watched by a doting grandmother and, at one point, a chauffeur who served as a stand-in for said grandmother.
  • Charlie and Astrid must have done something right, however, seeing as Delia received a full academic scholarship to Stanford University and went on to earn herself a Master's degree in communications and a Ph.D. in political science.
  • As of October 2019, Cordelia "Delia" Rochat is in the second year of her very first four-year term serving as mayor of the Greater Cordova Metropolitan Area, and the scope of her vision only continues to expand with possibilities. She sees an ever-narrowing bridge between species relations, a single community fortifying itself amidst the separate neighborhoods, and a better Mountainside for the future generations that will one day take her place.
