SkillsAfter being expired and pushed by her brothers, father, and given details about her mother, Blanca strives in athleticism. Over the years, she has been on enough hunting and camping trips to have learned several tricks and tips on how to be safe and have fun. She also knows how to fire a gun and has killed a deer or two herself before. She has also spent many hours helping Carlos work on his car, learning a decent amount of auto mechanics. But her sports skills are her more notable, being both the Basketball Team Captain at her last school and the 2nd best member of her school’s track team by the time she transferred to Xavier’s.
Since the 4th grade she started jogging, jump roping, and even some weightlifting, learning from Leo. By the time she was in the second half of her 6th year in school, Blanca was nearly doing workouts daily. Her father and Eddie helped her learn how to properly throw a football and how to catch, throw, and hit a baseball. She of course was taught how to swim, ride a bike, and skateboard from Carlos as well. Lastly, with Eddie who started two years before her, helped her out when he decided that everyone should know how to defend herself, taking her to the boxing classes he went to.
Weight: 1,500 lbs. (Appears normal weight for her height).
Other: She prefers to keep her hair short in order to better stay out of her face and her body is rather thin and athletic due to her enjoying the workout routine she created for herself. In fact, due to her powers, she seemingly defies her true body weight. People would suspect her weight to be only about 110 lbs at most, not nearly a ton. She has light scars long her body from fails and other accidents over the years from such a physically active lifestyle. Because of her higher body temperature, Blanca will often dress in clothes made for much warmer seasons.
She doesn’t wear pants often, usually long shorts are the limit. If you were to ask her, basketball or gym shorts are preferred. Shirts are about the same, as Blanca usually won’t wear anything with long sleeves. Taking it farther, she doesn’t have a lot of nice clothes that one wouldn’t won’t to get dirty, usually t-shirts or crop tops. She isn’t one to wear any makeup or more formal clothing unless the occasion calls for it. She is one to wear things until they can’t be worn anymore, especially shoes. For nighttime, she typically wears a sports bra and some old black short shorts. Otherwise she has no piercings aside from one stud in each ear, no tattoos, and a birthmark that she’ll swear up and down looks like George Washington on her left buttcheek.
PowersMatter Ingestion: Blanca's first power is the ability to eat mostly any substance without harm to her body, her body adapting to to reflect this. Her jaw doesn’t seem to be able to get tired, the bones, muscles, and ligaments are all super strong, stretchy, flexible, and highly durable. She is able to swallow about the rough size of a basketball. They are strong enough to give her a 2,000 psi bite at her current ability. Her teeth are powerful enough to allow her to cut, chew, and rip through wood, plastics, granite, titanium, and she’s even capable of gnawing through the hardness of diamonds given enough time and effort. They start to grow back near instantly if ever removed, though it is difficult to do so in the first place.
Her mutation creates a protective layer of energy that makes the inside of her digestive system, from the entrance to the exit, practically invulnerable to injury or damage from the inside. The energy also provides protection and strength to her inner mouth, tongue, and teeth. Uniquely, the insides of her powerful intestines, namely her stomach, acting similar to that of a limited pocket-space, yet is still her stomach at the same time. The volume of her stomach can hold a maximum of approximately 3,000 gallons. Which is about a 'truckload'. Once something reaches pass Blanca's uvula, the passageway acts as type of wormhole-esque link straight to her stomach. Due to the nature of how her works, she isn’t effected by the weight, mass, etc. of the things that fill her gut. As long as it doesn’t cross the maximum volume limit.
Think of her belly like Tardis, bigger on the inside than on the outside. Her acids are potent and fast acting, they begin working on the contents quickly and effectively. Like a regular digestive system, things eaten are drained of anything that could be useful, then disposed of. Due to a highly efficient immune system and metabolism, even highly toxic, radioactive, glowing hot, or freezing cold objects simply become a harmless meal once ingested. It’s to a degree that Blanca wouldn’t get more than an upset stomach for no more than a day or so if she were to devour something extremely dangerous. It also protects her from other concerns that normally come stuffing herself with massive amounts of food, i.e. stomach ulcers, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. It even prevents her from getting drunk.
Blanca's main power’s drawback is upping her daily caloric needs from a regular 2,100 a day to 10,500 calories a day. This amounts to her needing a full three coarse meal (maybe with seconds) every hour she is able to stay awake. Normally, a person on average stays awake 15+ hours. But due to how draining her powers are, she can only stay up for 10-12 hours, give or take. She only has enough stamina and endurance to still keep up with her regular workout and exercise in between meals, breaks, etc., but she had to practically cut her total by half. This is because she can’t risk using too much of her energy without putting her in a dangerous state. If she doesn’t keep up with her goal by the end of the day, she’ll grow weaker and weaker.
If this continues for more than 2-3 hours without even attempting to regain missing calories, she’d go into a coma-like state. Once at that point, she can survive off of her fat’s stored energy for another 32 hours or she’ll starve to death. Next, Blanca's teeth can only handle up to diamond level in pure hardness, but even that takes time and effort. At least 45 seconds of chewing. Anything more durable, like adamantium, is impossible for her to bite or digest anything of that caliber. In fact it’s actually quite painful and even dangerous for her to try. Despite her having a huge inner stomach, she can’t swallow anything bigger than a chunk roughly the diameter of a basketball.
While she may have a highly effective immune system, inhaling toxic chemicals can still harm her, for example. She actually is more vulnerable to things like illnesses effecting her if not introduced orally. Also due to how much her stomach is actively working, it can create frequent bloating and abdominal cramping. Lastly, Blanca's mutation also manages to effect her mentally. She developed Pica-like symptoms, occasional sleep eating and walking, and can easily became a compulsive eater.
Enhanced Adipocyte/Epidermis Cells: Like everyone else, Blanca's skin and fat cells are regular size and shape for someone of her build. However, that is only from the outside as her fat and skin cells are much stronger, denser, more elastic, and heavier than normal people, granting her a strong layer of dermal armor. This comes from the energy created by process of burning calories, supercharging her in this manner. She can survive large amounts of bludgeoning damage, blunt force trauma, bullets, slashing attacks, and even several stories high falls (which one should note that she falls a lot harder due to her mass), with no more than light bruising. These cells are better at retaining heat and protecting her from the cold.
Her skin warms her core temperature to 160 °F and her body has adapted enough to handle such a high body temperature, as long as it doesn’t exceed 190 °F . Her skin can handle up to - 250 °F, surpassing the cold needed to cause frostbite and hyperthermia. The last ability her fat gives her is by fusing it’s abilities with her cranial fluid, it gives her brain extra protection against concussions by far lessening how easy it is to get hit hard in the head, causing the brain to bounce against the inner skull. The gelatin-like fluid acts like a weaker version of her heavy body fat.
To start off, the laws of physics still apply to her immense weight. She has to often consciously remind herself to use her strength to subtly cut down how much of her weight is placed on an object. Such as she can’t simply flop onto a couch without most likely breaking the thing in the process. If she’s too heavy for a floor, she’ll fall through. Blanca can’t swim because she weighs too much and she’d just sink until she eventually, well, drowns. The weight can also occasionally throw her equilibrium off, often cause her to stumble or even fall. Next thing to note is while her skin and fat cells are undoubtedly resilient, they are not unbreakable. Blows on the level of what she can dish out, can actually do more than just bruise and scratch her.
Metals stronger than reinforced steel with a good deal of pressure and strength behind the blow can pierce her thick hide. Especially if said thing is sharp and thin. And while Blanca has good resistance to the cold and her body can handle high temperatures that it creates alone, her skin and fat is highly vulnerable to heat reaching 240 °F. This is only about 1.5 times as much as a human can handle before thermal burns the skin and fat. Boiling hot acid can work just as well. This also reaches out to her skin being easily bruised or beyond by high frequency sound waves, projectile energy (like laser beams), and electricity to a small extent. Her defense can easily become a double edged sword as if she ever would need emergency surgery.
It could end up being too late for her, if they’re unprepared due to how durable her skin/fat is. Her eyes, inner ears, top half of her skull, and nose are the most vulnerable areas if you really wanted to cause real pain to her. Speaking of pain, she actually has slightly lower pain tolerance than she did before. If she is in too much pain, she’d have to give up, retreat, stop fighting, or can be easily knocked out, no matter how durable she may be. As a couple of side effects, Candice has off and on knee, elbow, and spine pains, gained sleep apnea, and has acid reflex every now and then.
Enhanced Strength: Similar to how Blanca's powers effect her skin and fat tissue, while also being the method her body uses to adapt to her weight, granting her super strength and enough enhanced durability to not harm itself under such weight. She is able to subconsciously use this enhanced strength in her bones and muscles to keep at regular running, jumping, etc as she had before her mutation. But the maximum amount she’s able to lift and handle, before she’d start to strain and struggle is 15 tons as long as she keeps up with her daily caloric needs and doesn’t abuse the energy too much.
For Blanca's body to be able to support itself and survive under its own weight. So, she burns calories and adds strength and durability to her cells. However, it should be noted first and foremost, her skin and fat is two times stronger than her other cells. They don’t have the ability to seemingly bounce bullets off of her. Even though it takes a lot to even bruise her skin, heavy enough hits can cause internal harm. This is important to keep in mind alongside her skin’s weaknesses. Now, as stated she needs a steady flow of calories to be able to keep enough strength to move for the hours she can stay awake. No calories, no strength, no durability until there are calories to burn again.
It doesn’t help that the more she uses high amounts of strength, the quicker the calories will burn until she is rendered immobile. This can be somewhat prevented by keeping track of calories and eventually learning more and more about her powers. Blanca has to be conscious about her strength, which isn’t easy. She often rips clothes and breaks things by accident.
Hunger Inducement: Blanca subconsciously emits hat she calls "hunger field". Living creatures within 5-10 ft of herself will start to gain a hunger, while not as strong as hers but the longer they are around her and will find that their body's need 10% more calories to fuel their bodies, as their metabolism is increased. This can make them loose weight as well, over time. Even if they eat a lot. Not much but enough to become noticeable. She hasn't learned that she can turn this off and reverse as she isn't aware that she is doing it. To reverse, she would need to simply lay her hand on someone for 5 seconds an they'd be immune for 24 hours. Once they enter this field, it takes about five minutes before it starts working but once they leave the radius, they'd go back to normal in less than a minute.
Sonic Burp: Blanca's burps can cause her vocal cords (unknown how it works when it comes from the other end) to vibrate over a wide range of sonic frequencies and produce a volume of sound ranging up to at least 140 decibels. Blanca has thus the ability to shatter solid objects with a sonic belch. However, thanks to being in these types of contests with her four older brothers, she has more control over this than with her other powers.
