While generally a good person, recent events have made her somewhat bitter. Getting kicked out of college and her own family not wanting to have anything to do with her is extremely tough. She will probably ultimately be able to overcome her situation. Naomi is hoping to find a school where she can go to that she will be accepted.
She tries very hard not to allow her bitterness to treat others badly in turn. She still treasures the few friends who have been willing to stick by her. Naomi wonders if she might be able to find more friends in those with similar abilities to her own.
It would be quite easy how she has been treated to go the path of villain or monster. Either support herself through criminal activities or get revenge on those who wronged her. Neither is all that appealing although the path of hero does not currently hold much interest right now. Right now her interest is more in finding a place for herself where she actually fits in.

While Naomi is mostly Caucasian in appearance, there is obvious Native American ancestry in her appearance with a slight curve to her eyes. Her build is one of an acrobat or gymnastic with slender but still feminine curves. She has relatively light skin. For cosmetics, she wears fairly light cosmetics generally. Her hair is a relatively light brown, almost a dirty blond, which she keeps down straight below her shoulders.
The obvious evidence of being a mutant is a set of damselfly wings which appear to be made from iridescent crystal. Unlike dragonfly wings, the wings behind her body. While they can be tied down to be hidden, it is very uncomfortable for her.
Because of her wings, she almost always wears backless clothing. She is most fond of backless body suits. Likes to wear relatively colorful outfits, especially bolt colors such as blues, lavenders, and reds of various shades. Normally wears tights due to fit but also wears jeans sometimes.
Often uses her ability of creating crystal to make delicate crystal jewelry. This often includes necklaces, earrings, and hair decorations. As long as touching her, they will not fade.
Occupation: Ex College Student.

While in some cases those with super abilities are considered hero, many are considered monsters as well. Many communities and even families will shun those who develop super abilities, especially those with unusual characteristics that are extremely difficult to hide.
In general Naomi Young had relatively normal childhood and was raised in what might be considered a typical American home. Granted that was in a small town the Deep South and in a highly religious area. Deep in her past on her mother’s side was some native American blood but there was never any talk about it at home. Nobody seemed to know of what tribe. For some reason she had more evidence in her features than her mother but all it gave her was something of an exotic look.
In high school she was more interested in gymnastics and languages than in boys. Not that she did not like to have a good time but was far more careful than many of the other girls. In fact a number of girls dropped out of her class after becoming pregnant. Knowing that neither might work out, Naomi also took classes in business and economics.
Naomi’s parents never knew quite what to do with her. Unlike her brothers and sisters, she was fairly studious. In general girls were expected to get married and raise a family. Her own mother had gotten married just a few years after high school. In addition Naomi was never all that religious. Otherwise she was actually not much of a rebel, always working hard and studying just as hard.
After graduation, Naomi was able to go ro get a college scholarship to state college on a scholarship for her gymnastics. Otherwise she continued her interest in foreign languages, especially Asian languages. She toyed with the idea of eventually studying abroad, perhaps in Korea. Unfortunately unforseen events were to squash that idea.
As is common, Naomi tried to do whatever she could while she was going to college. A long tenured geology professor had just died and his stuff had to be cleared from his office. In addition to having a collection of insects trapped in amber, he had a number of drums which nobody knew what was inside.
Naomi was carrying a drum along with a box full of insects in amber down to the basement. She tripped over an exposed extension cord and fell. Samples in amber scattered everywhere and one with a damselfly caught in it broke. In addition one of mysterious drums fell and the lid came loose.
Out of the container flowed what looked like tiny crystals. Of a multitude of colors, Naomi thought that they might be some kind of salt, maybe the Himalayan stuffed used in lamps. Naomi could not help herself and touched the crystals. Unable to pull away, she first saw them wrap around her hands followed by her arms. It was just a few second later that she fainted and collapsed.
Sometime later she woke up in a hospital bed with a splitting headache. For some reason her back really hurt as well. In fact it felt like something was trying to poke out of it. She reached back and could actually feel something poking out. The doctors and nurses were of little help, giving her more and more tests while not telling her what was going on. Over the next few days she could see that a set of crystalline wings were growing from her back.
It took quite a bit of arguing but Naomi was able to get herself checked out of the hospital. When she got out she found out that she had been kicked out of the college. The reason was given was due to an unknown medical condition that could be dangerous. They did give her something of a payoff because of her “Injuries” although she knows what they gave her will not last long.
Yet another blow was that her parents wanted nothing to do with her. When Naomi called them, she was told not to bother coming home and they would not answer when she tried calling. From the one call, it sounded like they considered her to be demon possessed. A few friends stuck by her, some even giving her a place to crash at for a few days but life could be considered pretty bleak.
While bitter about how becoming a “Mutant” turned her life upside down, she soon learned that she could actually fly using the crystalline wings which had grown out to be quite large. Her own speculation is that the wings came from the damselfly trapped in the amber somehow. In addition she soon discovered that she could create crystal from seeming nowhere. Slowly she has been learning how to master her ability although not sure yet what she can do with it. Has learned some interesting tricks such as creating crystal jewelry.
