El has been with the site for nearly two years now and has continued to prove her value. Currently, she is heading up our site event, Battle for Liberterram, on top of keeping up with her own personal plots.
Lux's posts are all wonderful to read. She has done a wonderful job of grasping the new universe and incorporating Peggy into it.
It's good to see Spidey back on the site. Watching him deal with the universe shift in his own snarky way has been nothing short of entertaining.
Eight O'Clock on the Dot!
El and Lux are making magic in this thread. Straight up fireworks, and the way they've played with drawing out the reveal is top class.
Strength, durability, and longevity as all Asgardians possess. She is able to teleport at will.

Sif doesn't have a romantic special someone, though she does have a few obvious friends whom she considers special to her.
Combat: This is something Sif is good and and has always been good at. From an extremely young age, she was considered to be the best female warrior in Asgard and she's damn proud of that title. For her, combat slows everything down. She can see things in it that others can't and even prefers to talk with her blade. Politics annoy her, she leaves the talking to Loki. Sif is not really the type for discussion when she can solve a problem by brutally putting it down.
Plants: This is an odd thing to associate with the proud warrior, but she has always appreciated and enjoyed being surrounded by a variety of plants. The greenery makes her feel cool and calm and collected and she cares for them very tenderly. When she was younger, she was known to (violently) protect the greenery surrounding the Allfather's great hall from the tumbles and fights of the young Asgardians.
Friends: Sif can't list just one. She's close to Thor, Loki, and the Warriors Three. Or, at least she was close to Loki. That is, before he decided he wanted their group of friends dead and he sent the Destroyer after them. She's got a bone to pick with him about that. Anyway, she grew up with all of them and has fought beside them in battle many times. The way into Sif's heart is to have her back in a fight, so her trust isn't very lightly earned.
Asgard: It's what she knows and to her, that's good enough. Midgard confuses her with all its technology and metal horses, not to mention electricity and nuclear power. It seems to her that the humans are obsessed with power, so much so that they've endangered themselves and their planet with their inventions. She doesn't understand why Thor likes to linger there so much and she prefers her own home with the clean air of Asgard.
Her Sword: Sif, to her extreme pleasure, owns an enchanted sword. While she can teleport on her own from Asgard to various places on Midgard, her sword allows her to cleave a gateway to other realms and planets. It helps her keep up her strength to rely on it to make a gateway from Asgard to Midgard, but other than that she hasn't had a reason to use it to get anyplace else. It is one of her prized possessions that she received when she was a teenager from Loki, as an apology for cutting off her blonde hair and replacing it with enchanted dark locks of black.
Betrayal: Sif puts her trust in very few people and she respects even fewer, so being stabbed in the back is unacceptable and something she doesn't generally feel she should have to worry about when she has made it clear that she trusts you to have her back. She has since rethought her policy due to the recent betrayal of Loki, one of her childhood friends. His actions have caused her to be much more wary of the advances of others to get to know her and she prefers the company of her sword and her plants more often than not.
Ignorance: While Sif can understand being ignorant of things such as the existence of Asgard or how to solve certain math problems, she definitely does not understand the collective human ignorance when it comes to the slow destruction of their own planet. She sees the waste and pollution, nuclear disasters and oil spills of Midgard and it makes her horribly angry to think that humans could be so massively stupid as to doom their own race and planet.
Chauvinism: It's pretty obvious to see just by looking at her, but Sif is the type of person who, when faced with someone who tried to "spare" her from something such as a fight because she's a woman, would promptly put her fist through their face. She hasn't spent her entire life fighting amongst her fellow Asgardians to make it to the top only to have a guy look down on her because of her gender. You won't see her heading a feminist campaign any time soon, though she wouldn't be against breaking the bones of a misogynistic asshole she happens upon on the street.
Sex/Romance: To be completely honest, Sif once had a thing for Loki, and then a thing for Thor, and neither of those things panned out (and by that I mean it ended horribly on one end, scarringly so for her) very well. She has long since decided that romance isn't the sort of thing for her and that goes for sex as well. She isn't the type to run around with just any sort of person and she never will be. That isn't to say she's got a lingering flame for either Loki or Thor, it just means that due to her quietly and secretly guarded past romantic feelings towards them, she's learned her lesson.
Cats: She's more of a dog person. Dogs are very loyal and loving and she's never had one who she was afraid would turn on her. Their trust is very simply earned and kept and she appreciates it, even though that trust is from an animal. Cats, however, are shifty and they like to be dominate. She prefers an animal who doesn't try and get her to bend to its whims.
Fighting: This is obviously a strength of Sif's as she wouldn't have the title of one of the greatest female warriors in Asgard otherwise. This seems to be, in her opinion, one of the only things she's good at. She's awkward when it comes to showing affection to those she cares about, she's terrible at being comforting, and she doesn't always remember to smile at the right times. She would fight to the death, however, for someone she really cared about.
Teleportation: Let's be honest, she's had to hone this skill thanks to Thor and the Warriors Three. They get into all kinds of trouble and they need someone to bail them out. Because Loki couldn't be expected to join in on all of their shenanigans, Sif honed her own teleportation skill in order to be the back-up who got her friends out of their silly messes and she has probably saved them from a lot of terrible mishaps occurring.
Loyalty: Sif has never, to her knowledge, betrayed someone she cared about. When she gives a person her oath of friendship and trust, she means to keep that until either her death or a breach of trust. She has only had her oath breached once and to this day the memory of it still pains her. To be quite honest, Sif still has nightmares of the day one of her best friends sent the Destroyer to kill her.
Emotional Barriers: While Sif does feel things and she reacts accordingly, sometimes she has trouble showing exactly what's going on behind that face of hers. While some would see this as a strength, and sometimes Sif does, most of the time it feels like a weakness. People assume things of her that are quite frankly not true and without the emotional show behind it, most of the time her protestations to the contrary are met with disbelief.
Her Oaths: As a woman who has a very strong set of morals, Sif believes that oaths, once made, should be kept no matter what. She, along with the Warriors Three, made their oaths to Odin to protect him and all of Asgard, to follow his commands and that is something she has done at the cost of her own personal values, her heart, and sometimes to the agony of her closest friends. This is something she has come to regret deeply and will never forgive herself for.
Pride: Sometimes Sif's pride as a warrior and as a person can cloud her judgement and spark arguments. When she feels she has been insulted, she has no qualms about drawing her sword to protect her pride and her honor. While she is not very easily provoked, if her pride as a warrior and a woman is poked at enough, she will strike out and Sif does not usually deal out her punishments in words.
Sif wants to become the greatest warrior known to Asgard, not just the greatest female warrior. If she was the greatest, it would give her the ability to protect her friends and loved ones, which is her true goal.
Her greatest fear is to let down those she loves the most. She's not sure why this is very important to her as those she cares about the most are gluttons, brash boys, and assholes who like to permanently change a person's hair color, but it's something she fears nonetheless. It would kill her to know that she had failed them.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER AND:
Basically, Sif holds her friends very close to her heart and would do practically anything for them, including dying. She would probably walk through Hel and back for them (and, actually, did so once). She is loyal to a fault and, once she has sword an oath, she keeps it. However, Sif has some very deep regrets she keeps hidden from the light of the world and as such, they torture her on a regular basis. While she trusts those that are close to her, this is something she does not share with them.
Sif is probably the most obviously emotional during a fight. When not using her sword to speak for her, she has trouble showing her emotions and is often called cold, or her intentions and feelings are misconstrued no matter what she says to the contrary. Because of this, she often prefers the company of dogs and plants to human beings, though she can often be found on miscellaneous adventures with Thor and the Warriors Three. Someone has to keep them from doing something too stupid, right?
