She still has those powers, but she retired nine years ago to raise her family. Occasionally she’s called on to help out her home town of Columbus, Ohio, or the country, or even the world, but mostly she leaves those problems to other heroes because her family needs her too. She’s never worn a mask, and has no secret identity, and she’s used her popularity to champion causes that need standing up for. Mom has the funniest bed time stories, especially when she tells true ones from her super hero days. Liza is Leon’s biggest fan, and Leon has come to accept that his wife is more famous then he is. Liza is Caucasian, but has dark hair and her children are blond haired with lighter skin than she has. Why, is a mystery.

Liza is the first woman to have the power. The first Paragon was the founder of the American Defense Force. The third founded the United Nations Defense Force.
|The Defense Force
People gifted with super powers are a part of everyday life in this world, and most of the gifted lead normal lives (although in extraordinary ways). Actual super heroes are very rare and are actually special officers of the police or military. Some people have used their power to vigilantes (heroes without permission) or to do bad things. Some armies in the world use the gifted as soldiers. The Defense Force is there to stop those people. The Defense Force also helps the gifted cope with their powers and fit into society.The Defense Force was created by Paragon I after the troubles gifted people caused in World War II. Most of the Defense Force are normal humans grouped into soldiers and Agents. The Agents handle legal and social issues, and investigations. The Soldiers handle problems when powered teams aren’t available. The Alpha Team is the elite unit of the Defense Force. A group of gifted humans that handle crisis, natural disasters, and gifted humans that standard police and military units have trouble with. Until Liza retired, the Alpha Team was always led by a Paragon.
Control is the codename for the computer jockey in the Defense Force control room. He monitors all network feeds using cybernetic implants. He coordinates the Alpha Team and supplies information to the Agents. The Control job changes every few years and Liza dated the first Control before she met Leon.
