One could in general consider her to be a relatively typical young woman who likes to party and have fun. Might be considered slightly on the wild side and more apt than many to get into trouble. One cannot consider her inhibited in any way and enjoys sex. Suzanne is quite charismatic and has lots of both friends and lovers. Might be considered just a little snooty but not unbearably so. Does consider friend very important and is quite loyal to her friends.
In order to make ends meet in fact, she works as a lap dancer. To her, the job means that she gets to work less hours than she might in a more traditional job. Not quite daring enough to work as an escort however even with her enjoying sex. It is one boundary she does not want to cross. Currently, she is still trying to figure out what she wants to do and considering if she should go to college.
To some extent, Shooting Star is still learning about her abilities and growing into them as well. If she has a choice, she prefers to use blinding flashes on those she fights so that she does not have to actually kill anybody. However, if she has to attack directly, she will use her abilities in that manner. Not into physical attacks, preferring to dodge and use her light based abilities. If somebody is armed with a firearm, she prefers to stay as far away as possible.

In many ways, Suzanne background can be considered fairly typical. As with many kids, her parents divorced when she was young and she was raised mostly by her mother with her father visiting occasionally. After the divorce, her father never seemed to have much time for her or her siblings, preferring to spend time with his new wife and their children. He married again only a couple of years after divorcing Suzanne’s mother. Her mother never remarried and did not even have any real relationships after the divorce.
As far as full siblings, Suzanne had two older brothers and an older sister. Her father had two more children with his new wife after her father and mother got a divorce although as one might expect, she never had many dealings with them. As is common, Suzanne fought a fair amount with her brothers and sister. In part it was due to the fact that they resented her a bit as being the baby. As far as she knows, none of her siblings or her parents ever showed any signs of special abilities.
Because their mother had to work a lot, the children were left to their own devices more than might be wise. It is not that her mother did not care about her children, she cared about them very much, but simply did not have that much time to spend with them. As a result, Suzanne grew up to be a bit wilder than she might otherwise have. It did not help that she was extremely pretty and charming. Still, she only ever got into minor trouble. Her mother always insisted that her children stay in school.
Suzanne was fourteen when she started discovering her abilities. There was nothing really unusual going on in her life at the time. It started with her being able to first able to generate some feeble light. There were some hints before such as the fact that her skin stayed fair and never burned no matter how long she stayed in the sun, an effect of her energy resistance.
Slowly she grew into learning more about her abilities always cautious to keep them hidden. Her ability to generate light soon grew into the ability to create both beams of light and powerful beams of light. Learned she could fly and generate a protective force field.
Over the years she had a number of close calls with both friends and family almost discovering that she has abilities. Somehow she was always able to explain off what happened. There were other heroes around and she did not want to become publicly known as one. Even though a little bit wild, Suzanne never had any desire to be a villain.
When she graduated from high school, she flailed a little bit and did not know what to do. All of her brothers and her sister had left home several years previously. A friend suggested that she could make money doing exotic dancing and lap dancing. Tried it out and found out that it was an easy way to make money without spending a lot of hours working. While her mother does not really like what Suzanne is doing, she more or less accepts it.
Knows that she cannot do it forever and is considering what she might do in the next few years. Did not really like high school all that well and never applied herself to her ful extent. As a result of her experiences in school, she does not know if she wants to go to college although is considering it.
