Aren't you so appreciative of the money your family mysteriously have been blessed with? Your family are just a bunch of greedy thugs, aren't they? How else could you Manchester, be one of the most richest families in the world?!
Berna Manchester:Take that back!
Pinky:Why should I? I could confess to the whole school that you have a gangster family?! By the looks of it, I bet they're just like you!

Pinky: You existed! You existed, you...you freak!

- Delphine Isley:It's cute that you actually think i'm going to do that crap.
Lyn Manchester:I'm your handler and you will do it!
Delphine Isley:Correction: Batman is your handler and what he tells you what do...you tell me what to do and once i do it you report to him.
Lyn Manchester:Wrong. I am your handler and i report to him to show that you are keeping your end of the bargain and keep you out of Arkham. So if you don't want to comply... (steps closer and forces Delphine to look up to keep eye to eye contact)...we can end this today and put you in a cell.
- Delphine Isley:Lyn, do me a favor and go eat a poison root.
- Skye Rowan:This is Stormy! He's my pet...i've had him since my powers kicked in. My mother ,Samantha, dared me to try taming a cloud, and after i did, this little guy decided to like me so much that he wouldn't go back home. He decided to live with me! (hugging her pet again, Stormy made a contented sound much like a cat's purr. Skye then glanced up at Zak) I left him behind in Canada because i wasn't sure if he'd be safe here... Guess it's okay if i keep him, huh?
- Saya Sato:Speaking from the girl who has the same superpowers as a carpet. So does that make you Carpet Woman? Or maybe the Magic Carpet with legs?

Tora Neal: Touche.
- Saya Sato:(shouted excitedly)Yes! I have friends in this class! Now i don't have to be all awkward and alone!

- Lyn Manchester/Cursechanter: (shouted) HONG KONG PHOOEY!

Saya Sato/ Velocity:I got the culprit!
Citizen:Wait a minute, that's the wrong guy.

Seraph Hernandez:(scoffed) Screw off!
- Lyn Manchester:Is...that what everybody in school call you?
Berna slowly nodded as she fumbled with her fingernails.
Berna Manchester:I mean, what other suiting name is there to call me?
Lyn Manchester:Your real name. You're Berna and that's that. You shouldn't let people get away with treating you so horribly. Truth to be told, i don't know what it's like to get bullied, but if you're allowing yourself to be a victim of bullying without doing anything to stop it, then you'll let those people win. You can't let that happen. You have to stand for what's right, even if it means standing alone.
Berna Manchester: Thanks...Lyn...Let's hurry up to class before the tardy bell rings.
- Crispin Rivers:Do you do that all the time?
Tora Neal:(coldly) When people get too close, they get hurt. It's how it works.
- Beatrix Manchester: I guess you could call him a bad person. But not when you girls were around! He wasn't bad around us! Never!
- Agent Six: Don't you ever do that again! Do you hear me? You could've been killed!
Agent Six embraced her tightly before releasing and walking off.
Agent Six:Still, don't do that again.
- Berna Manchester: No! You don't know anything about me! You don't know what i've been through! You don't get viciously bullied and harassed at school because you're not a teenaged outcast! You get perfect grades! You have lots of friends! You're one of the most popular kids in school! You have a boyfriend who 1) lives in an alternate dimension and works for an organization known as Providence, 2) have the ability to create a variety of machines on his body and 3) He can cure E.V.O.s! You can cast spells! You're the second powerful one in the group! You're one of most strongest and powerful beings in the entire universe! You're Bruce's favorite godchild! You're Sunny's favorite relative! You're the team leader! YOU'RE THE FIRST BORN SIBLING!
Lyn Manchester:(angrily)Sis, That's enough!
Berna Manchester:(shouted)You just think i'm weak because i can't protect myself from Celia! But i can and i will!
Lyn Manchester:(shouted)I'M JUST TRYING TO PROTECT YOU, THAT'S WHAT OLDER SIBLING ARE SUPPOSED TO DO!
Berna Manchester:(shouted)WELL, I DON'T NEED PROTECTION...NOT FROM ANYONE AND ESPECIALLY NOT FROM THE LIKES OF YOU!
- Katlyn:GET UP!
Katlyn:You've been seducing my Apollo that's what! And don't even try to deny it!
Mallory Black:Apollo who?
Katlyn:You know perfectly well which Apollo!
Mallory Black:We are talking about Shaggy Rogers right?
Apollo tried to hold a chuckle when Mallory opened her book again and began to read.
Mallory Black: Well, i'm so sorry for seducing Apollo.
Katlyn:Ha! I know it!
Mallory Black:Know what?
Katlyn:That you've been seducing Apollo!
Katlyn:Apollo! My boyfriend!
Bro, you're so lucky, getting Katlyn.
Mallory Black:Who are you again?
Katlyn;Wh-What? No, that's not important!
Mallory Black: Well, if i don't know who you are, doesn't that mean i don't know who your boyfriend is?
Apollo suddenly burst into laughter.
Apollo McGuire:Katlyn, leave her alone, okay? This is getting boring.
Katlyn:I know it, she is seducing you?
Apollo McGuire:Say what?
Katlyn:It's not true, right?
Apollo McGuire:Katlyn...why would i choose an ugly cheerleader when i can have Mallory all for myself? She's the attractive one around here and you know it.
Mallory smirked rather satisfactorily as Apollo smiled and hugged her. Suddenly the teacher walked in with a new student.
What is going on here?
Katlyn's eyes immediately watered.
Katlyn:Mallory Black hit me!
Apollo McGuire:What the...?
It's true! And she tried to attack us!
She's so scary!
Katlyn:But Apollo saved me! He pulled her off me!
Mr. McGuire, is this true?
Mallory Black:Yes, It's true.
Katlyn stumbled in shock as Mallory stood up, looking completely calm.
Apollo McGuire:(whispers)Come on Mallory, don't do this.
Mallory Black:I attacked Katlyn because there was a wasp tangled in her hair. I was just trying to pull it out before it could sting her...but it flew out.
Katlyn :Wait...THERE'S A WASP IN MY HAIR?!
- Skye Rowan:YOU KNOW WHAT MR. STEPS! I WILL GET YOU! SERIOUSLY! WATCH OUT! I'LL CURSE YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! YOU AND YOUR EVIL SPAWNS WILL FEEL MY WRATH! THIS HOUSE WILL AS WELL! MR. HOUSE, I'M COMING FOR YOU! BRING IT ON! I DON'T NEED YOUR SASS! WHAT WAS THAT? YOUR SHAKING IN YOUR RUSTY OLD TERRAIN OR WHATEVER? YEAH! THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!
The screen then focused on Aeolus who is just staring down at them with a deadpan expression then turned to face the audience.
Aeolus Rowan: Let's just say the psychiatrist was busy for the next 2 weeks.
- Celia:Berna?! W...what are you doing here?!
Berna Manchester:I'm need you to listen to me. I'm sorry. I'm sorry about what happened to your mom. I wish i could go back in time. I wish i could make you happy again. I wish i could just bring back the past. But...I can't do that. There's only so much
Celia:Seriously?! You want me to trust you?!
Berna Manchester:You don't have much of a choice.
Celia:NO! I DON'T DESEVE TO BE SAVED! I DON'T WANT TO BE RUINED BY YOU! YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING! YOU'RE JUST LIKE YOUR FATHER, BERNA MANCHESTER! YOU ARE A CRIMINAL, A LIAR, A FAKE! YOU'LL LET EVERYONE DOWN JUST LIKE YOU LET YOURSELF DOWN! DON'T YOU SEE? I'M PROTECTING MYSELF FROM YOU! IF YOU'RE EVEN THE SLIGHTEST BIT DECENT, YOU'LL LET ME STOP YOU!
Berna Manchester:This is why...This is what i'm trying to save you from...
- Berna Manchester:Why do you hate me? Your future self acted as if i were her friend.
Sera furiously whipped around and faced Berna.
Sera Hernandez: (shouted) I DON'T CARE ABOUT MY FUTURE SELF!
Berna Manchester:Well, you are your future self. You'll be acting just like that one day.
Takashi Yamamoto:(sarcastically)Wow, you are the hero for crazy girls with febreze.
- Skye Rowan: Hey look, everything is going to be okay tomorrow. Just wait and see, things might turn out-
Katherine:I can't be bothered to go to prom...no guy had asked me out and i'm going to my cat's funeral. Don't feel sorry for me because the cat was fat and useless anyway. So stop talking to me, you ugly dude.
- Mr. Johnson: Okay brats, because you two have been so quiet during detention, i will let you both go early...I know you need to get home and get ready for prom tomorrow night not why i'm letting you both go. Don't make me give you another detention after this again. Do you both understand.
- Lyn jumps
Lyn Manchester:AHHYYYYAAAA! (throws a ball of duct tape at her)
OW! WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT?!...is that duct tape?
How did you get that?
Lyn Manchester:Oh, well Mr.Tatum told me to put some stuff up, then he said 'take it down maggot!' and i said 'God man, make up your mind!' so i took it down and rolled it up into a ball.
...you really are crazy...
- We are all freaks and if we don't accept that we are freaks then we are nothing. Even Sparky here, she is as much of a freak as the rest of us.
Hey, leave me out of this.
How long are you going to keep this act going? You have killed more people than the rest of us. I know what you did that day. I read the report, it's time to stop pretending that you are some kind of innocent person.
Sera Hernandez:What is she talking about, Sparks?
Tora close her eyes and looked away, refusing to speak to Sera.
Delphine Isley:F.A 4113 was the name of a plane that crashed 7 years ago. It made the news around the world. I'm surprised you guys haven't heard of it. (looked over at Tora who had closed her eyes trying to block out Delphine's voice) Over 500 people were killed in that accident; men, women, and children. The passengers and crew members were all dead before they could hit the ground. They have been electrocuted; the officials blamed it on faulty wires but that was never proven. (looked at Tora again, who now have tears forming in her eyes) The report said that the images were too graphic and disturbing to share with the public. There was one reported survivor, a seven year old girl...she came out of that accident without a scratch on her. Ain't that right, Tora?
Everyone watched as tears began to run down Tora's face, sparks shooting off where the liquid touched the skin. Wincing at the sparks, Tora looked up and glared at Delphine.
Tora Neal:It was an accident.
Delphine Isley:So what? You still killed them!
Tora Neal: (screams)I was a child!
Delphine Isley:(yells)It doesn't make any difference to the families left behind to grieve! You can pretend all you like but you know that deep down inside, you are a freak too!
Tora Neal:Let me out! Dad, you better let me out right now or you will regret it!
Tora, in case you have forgotten, your cell is padded with a static and soundproof lining. You will not be able to shock anyone whilst you are in there.
Tora Neal:When can I leave?!
That is of no importance as of now.
Tora Neal:I am not a lab rat you can experiment on! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, DAD?!
You are my chess piece now; I can do whatever I want with you. Good day, daughter.
Good morning, pretty lady.
Don't try and speak. We have a few tests to do carry out this morning. As you said before, you are our lab rat. Now you just lay back and relax. Imagine you are at the spa. A pretty thing like that can do that can you? stroked Tora's hair out of her face. Tora glared at the man and her eyes glowed white in rage as the man wiggled his gloved fingers in front of her face.
I wouldn't do that if I were you, Sparky. Now, be still for one moment would you, I just need to give you a shot.
The man took out a large syringe gun and placed it to Tora's neck and pulled the trigger. Tora screamed in agony as the man started to chuckle at her reaction.
Tora Neal:I am going to get out of here and when I do, you better start hiding!
- Tora Neal:(screams)All of you had make a choice, you chose the life you wanted to live. You chose the life of protecting citizens and those who had chose to be a villain had chose to kill people. Some of us never got the choice. I destroy everything i touch, anything and everyone i cared about! So don't you dare stand there and tell me that i don't know that i am a freak!
Tora stormed out of the room, Crispin had tried to take a hold of her but was shocked back into his seat as she pushed past him in tears as she ran out of the basement.
Tora Neal:I wasn't even a day old when i killed my mother-she never even got to hold me. While she was pregnant with me, she was having major fits and by the time she gave birth to me, she no longer had the strength to fight, She had a heart attack and died because of my static- her heart just couldn't take it and i killed her. My father fall into a deep depression and he had granted my custody to my brother. My father hated me for killing my mother and took his rage on me with his tests. My powers got more and more unstable as the tests went on, the human body is not supposed to deal with that much static so it sent my powers into maximum overdrive. who has ever been able to come close to me and was one of the only two people who has ever cared about me. I had spend my first few years in a glass room and men in shock proof suits and water guns would go in and care for me...i was treated and watched like a lab rat as they dubbed me as Project X. I wanted them to leave me alone but they always keep punishing me for no reason.
It's a project my dad was working on to study the effect of electrotherapy on humans.
Tora Neal: Sometimes, I believe I came from a family of metahumans.
But what about your brother? Wouldn't he have contracted some sort of meta-human powers, too?
Tora Neal:I don't know. He never did weird things like they did...like i did. As far as i know, he was perfectly normal, just like... well, almost all of you.
- Young Tora Neal:I'm sorry Daddy! It was an accident!
Dr.Homer Neal:You killed 500 people. That is a lot of people baby girl.
Young Tora Neal:I'm sorry!
Dr. Homer Neal:Don't hug me! You may never hug me...you know you will only hurt me. Do you enjoy hurting people child? (Tora tearfully shook her head and wiped her face, sparkling slightly at the liquid on her face) You kill everyone and everything you touch child. From now on, you won't be touching anything or anyone again.
Tora snapped her eyes open to see that Delphine had knelt down next to her and was prodding her in the face with a pencil.
Delphine Isley:Buzz, buzz! Anyone in there? (stood up and walks away)Come on sleepyhead, we gotta go.
Tora Neal:Alright! Alright! I'm coming!
- Delphine Isley:Your father was Dr. Homer Neal right? Me and my aunt Harley were huge fans of his.
Delphine Isley:Did you kill him? Your father was murdered wasn't he?
Marina Sanders:What the heck Delphine?!
Delphine Isley: Hey, I was just asking! You don't mind do you Sparky?
Tora Neal:I don't want to talk about it Delphine.
Who is Dr.Neal?
Delphine Isley:He was this psychiatrist... who was infamous for creating Project X.
Delphine Isley:It was a project that was used to study on the effects of ECT on human beings.
ECT? What's that about?
Delphine Isley:Electroconvulsive therapy.
Ain't that when they electrocute you?
He electrocute people?
Delphine Isley:Did your own father electrocute you when you were a child? Is that the main reason why you are all sparky now?
- Commissioner James Gordon: Young lady, Why were you stealing a $942 jacket?
Tora Neal: Because I need it to keep myself warm at night?
Commissioner James Gordon: Why didn't you pay for it?
Tora Neal:Because i had no money.
Commissioner James Gordon:Where are your parents?
Tora Neal: I don't have any.
Commissioner James Gordon:What's your name?
Tora Neal:... I don't know.
Commissioner James Gordon:Don't you dare lie to me! Do you know any of the consequences of stealing or robbing?
Tora shakes her head.
Commissioner James Gordon: No? Well, then let me tell you. It's not pretty, especially for a kid like you. You will be staying at a jail cell for the night then you will be going to an orphanage tomorrow. Understand?
- Tora Neal: Could you please go away, Unless you want to search the whole apartment in case I have a bomb or something else that could hurt the Hawkins?
Lyn Manchester: No, it just that I...
Tora Neal: (softly)Why do you always believed I want to hurt anyone? ( sparks came out of her fingertips as her voice grew louder) I came to the team, so I could learn to control my powers, what would even the impression I would want to hurt a single person? Though, I have enough reason to after how you act like I don't even exist and only notice me enough to throw accusations in my face!
Tears slipped down her face as she take a intimidating step toward Lyn. Lyn took a step back in surprise as electricity sparked up Tora's arms along her skin.
Tora Neal: I only joined,because I thought a team of super powered people might be able to accept a freak like me, but I guess I was wrong! You only made my life worse than it already is!
Lyn reached out to Tora with a desperate look on her face.
Lyn Manchester: Tora,calm down.
Tora growled at her, sending a bit of electricity towards Lyn to keep her away. Lyn flinched at the gentle warning shock.
Tora Neal: But I know my life isn't going to get better anytime soon due to many mistakes I have made in the past. Whatever happens, happens. And there is nothing in this cruel world can undo it! Let me start by saying this...I don't regret giving you these scars, Lyn. For once in my life, I am actually proud of myself. I don't regret doing all the threats and blackmailing! I don't regret robbing and stealing things from people! Nor do I regret killing people and I especially do not regret killing women and children! Not even a bit!
Lyn Manchester:(yells) THAT'S BECAUSE YOU KILLED YOUR OWN FAMILY!
As Lyn said those words, Tora send a bolt of electricity at her, however Lyn dodged it.
Tora Neal: (angrily screams at the top of her lungs) DON'T YOU EVER SAY THAT AGAIN! WHO GAVE YOU THAT IDEA!
Lyn Manchester: The investigation team.
Tora Neal: How did they lead to this conclusion?
Lyn Manchester: Because they saw you kill parents and children and heard what you did to those innocent people on the plane! So when they found you without parents, they came to realize that you killed them. Even the government believes them.
Tora Neal: Well, they're wrong! If my parents and brother were alive, I wouldn't be the person who I am today!My own mother died before she ever had the chance to see me for the first time. She never had the chance to hold me and my own father blamed it on me and used me as a test subject because of it. Even though, he is a heartless man and I hated him for what he had done to me, I would never do anything to hurt him. I didn't kill him. A random co worker of his killed him while I was trapped in that torture chamber. And for my brother,it was an accident! He was one of the few people who had actually cared about me at the time, while the rest of my family shunned me and casted me aside like garbage. And I repaid him by killing him. It was the only thing I have I ever regret doing.
Lyn Manchester: Anna.
Tora looked at Lyn in shock and surprise.
Tora Neal: What did you just say?
Lyn Manchester: Well, full name is Annabella Tora Neal.
Tora narrowed her eyes at Lyn.
Tora Neal: How did you find out?
Lyn Manchester: When i was visiting the investigation team, I was looking through old cases that were never been able to solve. One of them, was about a wealthy psychiatrist who was killed by an unknown suspect. But they didn't know who. They found out a year after it happened, that he had a son and a daughter. However, the daughter was labeled missing. I can't seem to remember what she looked like.
Tora pulled out a picture from her pocket and showed it to Lyn.
Tora Neal: Did she look like this?
Lyn looked at the photo to see a young girl with neck length brown hair and grey eyes. She is wearing a pink dress, white stocking that goes to her ankles and a pair of black mary jane shoes. She is shown smiling and waving at the camera. Next to her is a tall, older male who has the same hair color and eyes as her. He is wearing a red, long sleeved hoodie with a fall out boy symbol on it, a pair of long blue jeans, and brown boots. He is shown placing a hand on the girl's shoulders as he smiles at her.
Lyn Manchester: Yes, that's her.
Tora Neal: People change. Once they change, it's hard to bring them back.
Lyn Manchester: Tora...
Tora Neal:(threateningly) Get out!
Tora Neal: (screams) GET OUT!
Robert Hawkins: I think it would best if you would just leave.
Lyn Manchester: It's probably for the best.
- Katlyn: I've never talked to a loser and an emo before. I wanted to see what it's like.
Berna Manchester: And the experience so far is what...?
Katlyn looked at Berna confused.
Katlyn: What does exp-experi-experience mean?
Berna Manchester: Devanie… could you translate for her.
Devanie sighed before looking at Katlyn with a stoic expression.
Devanie Black: Okay, i'll talk cheerleader for you to understand; So far how's it like talking to losers?
Katlyn: Different. Oh my god, you can speak cheerleader! I like you two already! You two are now officially my blfs.
Berna/Devanie: (unison) Blfs?
Katlyn: Best loser friends, duh!
Berna Manchester: Katlyn, you know Ashley and me aren't exactly on friendly terms.
Katlyn: Oh yeah. Oh well, do you know that before the whole Aeolus situation, me and Ashley used to date each other. Well, that was until she thought our relationship is boring.
- Is this a joke?
Scarecrow:No, that's the other guy.
Other guy? What other guy? There's two of you?
Scarecrow:Two of me? No, that's another other guy.
Another other guy? Can you stop talking in riddles?
Scarecrow:Riddles? That's another other, other guy.
… I'm confused now. Is this supposed to scare me or something?
Scarecrow:Yes! Scare you! Finally, you get it. That's my thing!
You scare me? Ha! This has to be a joke?
Scarecrow: Do I look like the Joker too you? But this isn't a joke, I assume you. If you want a joke, go watch Teen Titans Go.
NO! NO! GET AWAY FROM ME! GET AWAY!
- Crispin Rivers: Come on, Aeolus. You can do this.
Aeolus Rowan: (nervously) I don't know, Crispin. I mean, what if she rejects me or something.
Crispin Rivers: You gotta at least try.
Aeolus Rowan: Alright, I'm going in. walks toward the bathroom.
Aeolus then took a deep breath, then exhaled and opened the door. Before he did, however, it showed Berna's bare feet with the door in the distance as her shirt dropped from above.
Aeolus Rowan: Berna, are you in he-
Aeolus looks up and paused as it showed
Crispin Rivers: What happened?!
Aeolus Rowan: (shouted) I accidentally saw Berna naked!
Crispin Rivers: (screams) WHAT?!
Aeolus Rowan: (shouted) I know! But you know what's the really weird part?! I actually enjoyed it!
Sandra Tennyson:(offscreen) Oh, really now?
Aeolus turned to find The Tennysons behind him with an outraged look on their faces. Aeolus then jumped in fright.
Aeolus Rowan: GUYS! I SWEAR, I DIDN'T KNOW SHE WAS- (Ben ,however, punched him before he could finish)
The Tennysons turned to look at Crispin, only for him to slowly back away with his hands up before running downstairs.

Apollo McGuire: Yeah, Mallory. (turns around to see Mallory wearing a tribal mask)

Mallory lift the mask and laugh, causing Skye to pull out a rolling pin and smack her with it.
Mallory Black: OW! WHAT DID I DO?
- Berna Manchester: I'm a Phoenix Defender now, so you should just accept it because my friends did and that's what made me into who I am now.
- Beatrix Manchester: I'm very disappointed in you, young lady! How can you do such a thing?!
Berna Manchester: But mom, it wasn't my fault, Pinky and her gang tricked me into stealing the test answers. They said if I did it, they'd invite me to eat with them during lunch.
Beatrix Manchester: And you believed them! How can you be so stupid?!
Berna Manchester: I'm sorry. I didn't want for this to happen.
Beatrix Manchester: Sorry isn't good enough. And for the next two months, consider yourself grounded.
Berna Manchester: (shouted) SERIOUSLY, YOU'RE GROUNDING ME? I'M ALREADY IN ENOUGH TROUBLE IN SCHOOL AS IT ALREADY IS! WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO MAKE IT WORSE?!
