Complication – Weakness: Her Starheart powers do not work on wood.

An explorer at heart, Nysa Jath is a K’aitian who managed to escape a life of drudgery on her homeworld of K’ai in search for new places and adventure. Making her way from spaceport to spaceport with quick fingers and a quicker tongue, Nysa managed to stay one step ahead of getting into too much trouble. She wasn’t evil, she just did it to survive and to be honest, she liked the thrill of it.

While stowing away on a luxury cruise headed to the resort planet of Fhloston, Nysa overheard some vacationing (and very intoxicated) scientists bragging about an amazing new energy they had managed to capture. Nysa pilfered the container holding the energy, hoping to sell it for a nice sum of credits.

Unfortunately the container holding the energy was much more fragile than Nysa realized and the canister ruptured, releasing the energy onto the thief. Nysa absorbed the energy and she was transformed into a semi-energy state. She didn’t really feel any different, aside from feeling… well, energized. But she was different. Along with turning green, she was a lot tougher and she quickly learned she could manipulate the green energy in amazing ways: from shooting simple blasts of energy, to creating solid energy objects and even assuming a pure energy form to pass through solid objects. And she rather liked being green; it was always her favorite color.

Not long after bonding with the strange green energy, Nysa felt a nagging pull. It wasn’t painful, but it was a constant, irritating tug she eventually couldn’t ignore. That’s when she discovered that not only could she now fly through the atmosphere of a planet, she could even fly through interstellar space under her own power. Apparently even faster than light when she is in space, since it didn’t take her long at all to reach the source of the pull: a primitive planet called Earth.

Once on Earth, the pull stopped. But Nysa had no idea why she was drawn here. The people could barely reach space, but there were an unusually high number of powered beings calling the planet home. One of those powered humans, Power Girl, mistook her for someone named ‘Jade’. It was Nysa’s first clue and after explaining the situation Nysa learned about the woman named Jade who had very similar powers and her ultimate fate. Nysa figures that when that Jade died, it released the source of her powers: the Starheart. She doesn't know those scientists captured the Starheart or why it drew Nysa here to Earth, but she is trying to find out the answer to both of those questions.

Nysa has been on Earth for a few months now and during that time she's managed to acclimate to Earth culture, settling in Los Angeles. Power Girl introduced her to Alan Scott, the original Jade's father. It was with his blessing that Nysa decided to take up the mantle of Jade and become a hero in her own right. She has since taken the name Jessica Scott while on Earth to fit in a little better and she still keeps in touch with him. Alan even inadvertently gave her the idea to take up photography, which she now does professionally to earn money, which leaves her plenty of time to be a super-hero and to look into the mystery of the Starheart.
