Chloe Bennet

You taught me the courage of stars before you left

How light carries on endlessly, even after death

With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite

How rare and beautiful it is to even exist

Known by Many

  • Chess was a strong freedom fighter, sometimes dubbed "Boomer" (Thanks, Eve), with a knack for explosives and archery (and both, combined) during the Civil War, starting out in Colorado and gradually making her way eastward. She was one of the troops at Raven Rock.
  • She has helped in the Safe Zone by using her ability as a demos expert.

Known by Some

  • Chess was heavily affected by the death of her boyfriend Miles at Raven Rock and disassociated herself from many of her fellow soldiers and friends. Among her most cherished belongings, almost always with her, is a faded, yellowed, and dog-eared paperback of Immanuel Kant's writings that had belonged to Miles.
  • She works by short-term contract, preferring not to align herself with any corporations.

Known by Few

  • She has a few places she stays instead of renting an apartment. These include the 14th Regiment Armory in Park Slope and an abandoned VW van in Ferrymen's Bay.
  • She's a little prone to making bad choices these days and might be seen at The Crucible gambling or even fighting.
  • Chess always carries a courier bag full of things she can throw using her ability. She often picks up items to tuck inside.


  • War Stories She may have fought with (or against?) you in the war.
  • Boomer She's a demos "expert," if you need one (and you'll save on the cost of supplies).
  • Pour One Out She's not paying rent, so the money has to go somewhere.

While she isn't going to win an Olympic gold for archery, Chess is a proficient archer. She first learned how at summer camp as a child; during the war, someone had the brilliant idea of equipping her with their hunting bow to see what damage she could do by charging the arrows before shooting them. It helps that her power can increase the distance and speed, but even without her ability, she's a good shot.
