EDIT: Edited the backstory in hopes to fill in a few plotholes and maybe help it make more sense???
So I made another version of my self-insert OC, this is only because of this RP that me and a friend from school started together. XD She ships me with three (Yeah you heard me, three) of the Avengers, all of which I fangirl over to no end and just. ;w;
SHE DROVE ME TO THIS GUYS. BLAME HER.

She is considered slim but with a petite hourglass shape. She has very fair skin which is covered in freckles, and she sports two Grey-Blue eyes and freakishly long brown hair with blonde streaks dyed into the sides. In her ghost form, her eyes turn Silver and her streaks turn Magenta, which is why she often wears a hood when in ghost form; anyone with half a brain cell could figure out who she really was or recognize her, even with a different eye color or streak color.
Her normal outfit consists of a button-up pink plaid blouse with the sleeves rolled up to her elbows, light bellbottom jeans, and black boots with a slight heel, and a buckled strap going across the toes.

Sheri is the kind of girl who is outgoing when around the right people, but other times can be very shy and distant. She is very kind-hearted, polite, honest, and sweet, though she can tend to be very introverted and quiet unless directly spoken to, and tends to savor her free time by herself. She is compassionate about those around her, and is always there for them if they need her, even if they just need a listening ear. She can sometimes be pretty silly and quirky and awkward, she is also very artistic and creative. And she is also very intelligent, focused, and smart (though it seems to feel like nothing compared to those around her sometimes), and sometimes seems to daydream and be off in her own little world.
She is a Christian girl who just tries to do right by how her parents raised her and is open-minded. She is proud of who she is as a person, no matter how awkward or quirky she is.
She tends to be a mother figure to Tikira as she often has to keep an eye on her to keep her out of trouble, but still loves her regardless.
Quirks and Flaws:
She may not be the most witty person in her family, but that doesnt stop her from pulling sarcasm and smartassery when the opportunity arises. She is easily frightened, but she is also easily frustrated. She is also quite sensitive and can tend to take things personally sometimes. She is considered to be a combination of a geek and a dork, and she is very quirky. But rather than being embarrassed by this, she is proud of it and is confident in her goofy tendencies.
She is an Aspergers girl, which means she has a mild form of autism, so she tends to be easily intimidated by social interaction, which is also paired with a bad form of anxiety that she takes medication for. She has learned to handle some of her autistic tendencies by now, but others are still there. She can tend to get overwhelmed very easily, and will have an anxiety attack if she goes off her meds. She also suffers from depression sometimes and takes meds for that as well. She also takes an inhaler every morning for asthma.
She loves drawing, reading, writing, singing, and going online. She is very skilled with weapons and martial arts.
She is a total nerd and thus likes things like cartoons, anime, manga, comics, etc., and likes playing some kinds of video games (Like pokemon). Lastly, she enjoys dancing to an extent, as in she isnt a bad dancer, but is shy about dancing around other people.
She is an expert when it comes to the paranormal, multidimensional portals, and things that could be deemed as "magic", etc...
snakes and bugs. Horror, torture, and gore films.
She is scared of horses due to getting bucked off of one when she was a little kid.
She also doesnt like getting dirty, which just thus pushes the "girly girl" reputation.
She is also horribly creeped out by dolls and mannequins and things of the sort.
Cartoons, Anime, and Manga, art, and anything that has to do with mythical creatures, mythology, or the paranormal.
She also likes looking at pretty and sparkly things and cute or cool-looking clothes.
Love/romance, and the idea of love in general.
She thinks hip hop dancing is very cool to watch.
Animals, especially cats.
Math. Sports aside from martial arts. She doesnt like certain forms of immaturity, and doesnt like ignorance in people
Needles. Sudden/loud noises, overwhelmingly loud areas, and doesnt like being in huge crowds.
- Ectoplasm Shields (3 types)
- Ectoplasm Manipulation (Which includes the ability to create weapons and objects with the ectoplasm, and she can channel it and use it in different ways)
- She can talk to the dead and sense when a spirit is near by an intense ringing that blasts in her ears (which sometimes tends to cause headaches)
- Superhuman Strength and Durability
- Superhuman reflexes and Agility
- Superhuman Hearing
- She heals much faster, practically by supernatural standards, than any human being because of the ectoplasm in her body. (The healing process can take seconds, minutes, or hours depending on how bad the injury is.)
- She has the ability to transform from one form to another: A tight, ribbon-like glow consumes her from her feet and fingertips up to the edges of her hair, transforming her from one form to the other. This is actually a quick transformation that only takes a few seconds.
- Her signature weapon is one that she created with her ectoplasm called a "Cross Spear". As the name suggests, it is a long staff (several inches taller than herself) with a cross at the end of it rather than a spearhead. She uses this to slay demons. Sometimes she is also seen with other kinds of weapons (An Axe at about the same size as the spear, a katana, a throwing chain, etc) but her signature weapon has always been the spear.
She comes from a family with a rich history of being artistic and hard working.
She grew up as a rich kid, both her and her sister favored by their father and was a tad spoiled growing up. She was living in a large house when she was young, and her family was very wealthy at the time. But when her parents got divorced, she and her sister stayed with their father in his house only on the weekends. And when her father died when she was 11, she and her family took on a more average way of living. But one thing never changed; the barn, the horses, and the pets. These were animals she was very used to having around.
Their older siblings from her father's last marriage fought over the estate for years even though they rarely ever even visited the place, nor did they even grow up in the house. This always brought her anger and hatred towards her older siblings, even when the ordeal finally passed.
Her father was a renowned missionary (whom also owned a paint shop on the side) and her mother was a stay at home mom when she was little, but when her parents divorced her mom became a dog groomer, and then switched that out to become a real estate agent.
She was bullied horribly during elementary and middle school due to odd behaviors that resulted from her autism. (Boys would come up behind her and scream in her ear to make her upset, girls would pick on her for supposedly having no friends, and a few people even played keep-away with her notebook on more than one occasion).
She was an honors student all through her childhood. She got straight A's all the way up until High school where the material began to get much more overwhelming, but with the support of her family and help from her case carrier, she managed as best as she could, and managed to cope better with the work. The lowest grade she had ever gotten was a D in P.E.
She was always drawing or reading at recess rather than playing with other kids, and her autism was worse when she was a little kid, but leveled out some by the time she got into high school.
At ten years old, she and her uncle went to the store to get art supplies when they got into a crash with a drunk driver. Her uncle didnt make it, and Sheridan was in critical condition.
In the hospital, Sheridan could only remember vague images of her family's visits...and vague memories of other visits which more much more painful.
One day she remembered waking up to see her doctor, and a bunch of guys that wore black suits like they were part of the government or something. They seemed to talk to the doctor before looking at her, noticing her awaken.
They talked gentle, when they talked to her at all. As if to ease her nerves as they stuck the needle in her arm.
They must have drugged her because she couldnt scream or thrash. Or maybe she was just too exhausted to...
But the needle hurt like hell and tears didnt fail to fall down her face.
They called it "Medicine" but she wasnt stupid, of they had to have a bunch of government guys put something in her it couldnt have just been "medicine". What she didnt know at the time was that it was actually ectoplasm.
Only once did those guys come back. It was several hours later.
All he did was take some of her blood through a syringe and leave again.
The weird thing was that they only came when her mother wasnt there, or any of her family for that matter. So they must've never told them anything.
The remembered waking up many many hours later to see the nurse smiling at her and then saying that she was gonna be able to be taken home within the next hour. Which really struck Sheri as odd because she could remember being pretty banged up. But she said nothing about it. She only smiled and nodded.
She later went home and found out a few days later that she had gotten some weird kind of powers because of what had happened after accidentally phasing through her desk in school.
Man that was humiliating...
She soon put the puzzle pieces together and came to the conclusion that whatever those people put in her, gave her otherworldly powers and abilities, and soon began practicing with her powers, as well as using them with her martial arts skills.
This went on like an obsession for four years straight while she homeschooled in middle school. And she mastered her skills by the time she got into high school.
To this day she still has no idea who those men were or why they did this to her.
When she was about 12, she Met Tikira when she was severely injured in battle against this demon, whom was sent after her soul by a demon witch named Azrael. When Tiki Rescued her, Sheri took her in and they were best friends ever since.
All through her years in school, she was always a very smart kid. Her vocabulary was always far ahead of her age group, she typed differently then she spoke, and was always very mature for her age. For this she was often picked on or thought of as weird. She only had a small group of friends growing up, but frankly this was something she was fine with.
As she grew up, Tikira told her about the middle ground between heaven and hell that she had found earlier on with her sister, which was basically where spirits tended to roam back and forth between earth.
Tikira told her about some people there who could help her with her abilities, and the person she referred to was also an amazing martial artist who could teach Sheri everything she needed to know on using her powers.
Tiki led her to him
totally not needing ask random people or anything because this was a subject that she did VERY little research on since she wasnt born a witch like her sister and Sheridan trained under him all through middle school and high school. By the time she finished college she was a master at fighting and was great with weapons.
Unfortunately, Tikira couldnt train with her due to her recklessness. So it resulted in Sheridan being able to do things that Tikira couldnt, which sometimes left her feeling a bit left out. So Sheri taught her little friend a few things over the years in order to bond with her.
How she got involved with S.H.I.E.L.D. had to do with a spark of creature attacks that began happening. The sightings and attacks were increasing (rather slowly, but still in a significant pattern), and they were proving hard to defeat by any kind of gun or cannon.
These were creatures that Sheridan fought years prior, as the first creature of the kind that came to earth was the creature that attacked her when she met Tikira.
She and Tikira saved a group of agents from getting killed by a herd of these creatures. The up side to being a Christian was that one would know immediately what demons could and could not stand up against. Luckily the creatures were already weakened enough by the agents that their skin was easier to pierce than tissue paper...at least as far as Sheridan could tell...for her strength was greater than any human and she was well aware of it by now.
When it was recommended that she help inform SHIELD of what was going on, she agreed without question and was taken to see Nick Fury about the matter. She politely informed him of the situation and of what origins these demons were actually coming, as crazy as it sounded, and was told to keep in touch afterwards. Which she did and she soon got more and more comfortable with contacting, or getting contacted by S.H.I.E.L.D.
She and Tikira were experts when it came to crap like this, "magical" portals, demons, creatures, paranormal stuff of the sort, as they had learned far too much in their own experiences to not have knowledge of the subject.
Now, her association with S.H.I.E.L.D. has not changed too much from when she had first encountered them. Her relation to it mainly consists of fighting off demons and evil spirits that happen to cause havoc when they need her (though that doesnt necessarily stop her from doing so), and she happens to go there for things like dropping off any samples she may get her hands on, giving or getting any information that she can deem useful, etc. Technically she's a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent...but in ordinary everyday life she'd still much rather prefer to be working at the library where she feels most comfortable.
She still isnt quite sure what she has become or what her purpose is at this point, but until she finds out for sure, she has higher priorities to worry about.
- Her fav Colors are Pink and Black.
- She doesnt really have a favorite type of music. It really depends on the song or artist rather than the genre.
- For an actual career, she works at a library near her house, and has written two illustrated fantasy novels, and is currently working on a portfolio for an animation studio.
- One of her many nicknames is "Snow White" due to her very fair skin caused by vitiligo.
- She has a Teddy Bear named Blue that she's had since she was a little kid, which she keeps on a shelf above her desk.
- She is a Christian, though isnt necessarily "die hard" and doesnt really bring it up or talk about it, if at all. The most she does is pray for people and may bring up the subject if she can fit it in, or deem it useful or helpful in some way.
- She had spent several years practicing martial arts up until she was 12, so she had already gotten a sense of how to fight by the time she had begun training with spirits in the spirit realm. By now she could be considered to be a black belt.
- Drawing and listening to music is a way of coping as well as a devoted hobby.
- She has said multiple times before that being partners with Tikira sometimes feels like raising a kid, as she often has to act like Tiki's mother figure in order to keep her out of trouble. But truthfully, she wouldnt change Tikira out for anyone else.
- She doesnt have her father in the picture. After her parents got a divorce, he got very sick and died in the hospital when she was around 11. So for the bulk of her teenage years she had no father figure to turn to, and frankly this still hurts her sometimes.
- Truthfully, she never actually wanted to be a superhero when she got her powers (if she even wanted her powers). It was not an automatic interest, nor was it even a priority until a year or two after she actually began doing it. At first, it was just her trying to do right by her powers and use them properly. It wasnt until she partnered up with Tikira that it ever became an important factor in her life.
- When as Silverbeam, she tends to pull up her hood when she's embarrassed, shy, or upset.
- She tends to pick at her fingers and chew on her lips often due to anxiety, and she tends to get angry and start crying and yelling when she's having an anxiety attack.
- She is a night owl and likes staying up late, and loves sleeping in.
- She had been taken to be a Goddess of Spirit by Thor on more than one occasion because of her abilities that apparently match some kind of prophecy, in which she never knows how to respond. While flattered, putting herself in any place close to God felt wrong somehow. But even then, this is something that just further pushes her current conflict concerning her identity, and what she is. (See separated text below)
- Sometimes when she finds a lost spirit roaming the earth, she takes it upon herself to play "Reaper" and try to help these lost spirits find their way to their rightful resting places, to their home. Unfortunately, this can only go so far as she can only go as far as the Spirit realm. But in her endeavors, she hopes that she perhaps have helped these spirits find closure with her help.
- Sometimes when she thinks about her powers and their effect on her life, it makes her tend to question her own identity, and her own mortality. As she has come close to death many times before, but her healing abilities had come through for her.
She struggles not knowing exactly what she is and what's gonna become of her. And it tends to upset her due to the frustration of not knowing.
As it is said, she sometimes even questions her mortality. Its not that she's scared of immortality, if that happens to be her fate, its just that this "immortality" thing goes against her belief that the reason why mortals are mortal is because God decides when people die; once a person fulfills their purpose on earth, its time for them to go home. Which is where she has been suspecting her father to be. If she's some kind of immortal because of her powers...well then what is her purpose and why would she need to stay alive and well on earth anyway? Is she gonna be needed for something? Was this planned for her? Has her purpose changed?
Well in any case...she wouldnt be able to find out until much later in life, as only Angels and Demons can open up portals to Heaven or Hell, ordinary spirits dont possess that ability. And the more she thinks about this, more and questions come up that she's not sure she can answer, which only makes what she's going through even more overwhelming.
