Penelope Teng, also known as Gremlin, is an agent in the Department of Bad Slash. She is written by PoorCynic.

AppearanceEdit

Gremlin stands at about 5' 2". She has brown eyes and is of mixed Chinese descent. She had a jawline-length bobbed haircut upon first joining the PPC. After an accident with a firebender, Gremlin decided to keep her hair shaved on the sides and slightly longer on top. She has multiple tattoos, which include two crimson lightning bolts on either side of her navel, storm clouds on her shoulders and across her upper back, and a stylized DNA strand on her neck (the latter two of which she acquired after joining the PPC). She favors comfortable black or dark-colored clothing and makeup.

PersonalityEdit

Harsh, a bit crude, and somewhat flexible in terms of morality, Gremlin is a reformed criminal trying to do right. As a result of this, she tends to have a soft spot for most of the villains of any given continuum.

Gremlin is a thrill seeker — she was a gang member for the sheer rush rather than any monetary reward. She never backs down from a mission, no matter how brain-breakingly foul it might be. That being said, she typically does not act with reckless abandon when confronted with an issue. The stealthy approach has always been her preference, and her abilities in this area are quite advanced.

Gremlin is a bit of a party girl and loves hanging out in in huge social settings. She also likes electronica, cartoon shows, flirting with people, and unhealthy foods.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Gremlin has the ability to manipulate the electrical energy in powered machines. The level of manipulation depends on the effort she puts into it. For example, turning a light on and off requires a thought and a gesture. Causing a machine to short out or catastrophically fail requires a great amount of mental force. Something extremely complex, such as hacking a computer from across a room, requires intense and unbroken concentration. Any further applications for her powers have not yet been revealed.

Agent HistoryEdit

Penelope Teng grew up in a mixed race family (Chinese father, white mother) in a relatively well-to-do borough of Gotham City in the DCAU. After discovering her genetic abilities at the age of fifteen, she decided to put them to use by joining a small super-powered street gang. She acted as the gang's infiltration expert by using her powers to short out automated door locks and security cameras. It was this skill-set that led her to pick the pseudonym Gremlin. This lifestyle lasted until her gang ran afoul of the Batman. In her attempt to escape, she fell into a plothole and almost ended up the victim of a Mary Sue vigilante. Fortunately, she was rescued at the last minute by the Assassins sent to get rid of the Sue.

She was assigned to the Bad Slash department to work with Agent Xericka. Although their personalities clashed (and continue to do so), they were able to form a strong partnership and have completed multiple missions together. In May 2011, the two agents helped defend the International Academy of Hetalia Fanfiction from an invasion of Mary Sues. Gremlin was awarded the Knights Grand Cross of the Order of the Mochi (GCMG) for her assistance.

In 2016, Gremlin took part in the third and fourth seasons of the PPC Hunger Games. She placed 22nd and and fourth, respectively. Somehow, she was also able to keep her quote-enscribed hatchet from the fourth games.
