Background

During the 'Beast of Waldestatte' incident in Lucerne, S.A.G.E. sought the help of top notch veterinarian, Dr. Monica Torentino. The Beast terrorized the city on the lake and had caused severed damage to the bridge as well as several other structures, but while many people were injured, luckily no fatalities had occurred.

The S.A.G.E. field team, with the help of Steppenwolf, was unable to capture the Beast, but did drive it into the forest. The Beast would surely still be a threat at any time. The German hero led S.A.G.E. to Dr. Torentino, a well-reputed veterinarian with whom he had consulted a year prior.

Monica Torentino, Steppenwolf, and Troubleshooter tracked, and then observed the Beast over a period of a week. The veterinarian determined the beast to have some relation to bears and announced that she would attempt to capture the beast.

Although backed up by the superheroes, Dr. Torentino was able to pacify and then lull the Beast to sleep. She tamed and then trained the Beast, who is now the pet of Steppenwolf.

Character written by Neil M.

Personality

Not one to fuss about blood or dirt, Dr. Torentino cares about all animals. While this sometimes seems to be too much caring, she does value human life - especially the lives of innocents - more than that of animals even rare animals. While she is not afraid of field work and often will go in harm's way if a paranormal animal is involved, she knows that she needs protection and trusts that job to superheroes.

Quote

"Paranormal animals are still animals, just with the potential to cause more damage."

Powers

Dr. Torentino is a normal human without powers. She is one of the world's foremost experts on creatures and especially creatures that are of supernatural, alien, or uber nature.

Appearance

Dr. Torentino is seen almost always in safari style clothes: khaki pants, khaki short sleeved shirt, an olive green web belt with pouches and a canteen, leather boots, and Legionnaire style hat. The only times that she's not in such attire is in the operating room (where she wears a light green oversuit) and when she is on a date (when she wears a light cotton blouse and leather boots).
