Chastity is a relentless flirt. She takes love very seriously, to the point where if Precipice had made a move on her after telling her of his love for Erin, she would have made sure he suffered for it.
Chastity has wavy black hair like most of her siblings. She wears makeup and dresses in somewhat revealing clothing even in cold weather, which Victoria suspected was an intentional and strategic choice.
Abilities and Powers
Chastity has a Striker power which manifests as a dark blue glow around her hands. Upon making contact with a person, Chastity can inflict 'distilled defeat' upon them, usually taking that person out of the battle. Each person she affects appears to cause one of her fingernails to glow.
The severity of Chastity's power is affected by how powerful she is in her target's eyes; the more confident she appears to her target, the longer and stronger her power hits. If opinion of her is taken down, the effect dissipates, and Chastity suffers herself.
Chastity has a secondary Thinker power that allows her to sense the bodies of people in close vicinity of her. This sense also appears to apply to those she uses her power on. This serves to assist her aim with her primary power.
Separate from her power, Chastity carries a whip, which she uses in combat to distract and repel enemies. She also wears a lot of heavy jewelry.
Assisted Breakthrough with their mission to gather intel on Love Lost, and later in the night during the retaliation on Cradle. Her power was used to keep captives under control, as well as to pry Rain out of his forced dream prematurely. In the final part of the fight she was able to get her hands on Cradle's whip and cut Cretan in half, which in order forced Cradle to give away the method of fixing the maimed.
↑ 1.01.1“If you’re talking about my cousins, they’re never ‘okay’,” Chastity said. She was seventeen or so, with wavy black hair and makeup fully on point. I’d noticed Precipice noticing her cleavage. It seemed wholly intentional with her wardrobe choices, a low-cut top worn with a scarf and coat, unzipped enough that a strategic triangle was visible.
Had to be cold, but she endured with an unwavering, teasing smile that made me uncomfortable. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.5
↑“Relatively? It’s because they’re relatives that I know they aren’t okay,” Chastity said.
“Such a dork,” Candy said, before switching to French to better articulate that lameness. Candy was a smaller version of her older sister. She had a similar teasing demeanor, from what I could tell, but without the flirting aspect.
Chastity retorted with something else, so rapid-fire that I couldn’t even tell where the words started or stopped. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.5
↑Chastity stalked closer. She raised her right hand up over her left shoulder as she advanced, and it glowed nebulously with a dark blue energy. She had to make a small hop to give herself the height to make contact- a backhand swing that caught the air hockey puck across the face of the helmet. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.7
↑Chastity raised her hand up near her face, covering the smile she wore. One of her fingernails was glowing, and a ring at one of her other fingers was catching that light in a way more intense than normal. “Bitch slap delivered.”
“Not the reaction I expected,” I said, as I floated away from the air hockey puck. “Distilled defeat, you said?”
“It looks different for everyone, but everyone reaches a point where their body can’t take anymore and shuts down, whatever the mind thinks it wants. I hurry things along,” she said. She gave the ceiling a dubious look. “Let’s get outside. Outside has to be better.” - Excerpt from Blinding 11.7
↑Her ‘bitch slap’ was a dangerous weapon, but a fragile one. One shot, and if the target wasn’t immune or resistant to emotion powers, then they were out of the fight. If she was more confident or powerful in her target’s eyes, it hit harder and lasted longer. The fragility, though, was that the second she was taken down a peg, the effects all broke, everyone she’d slapped down was back in play, and she ate some of the backlash. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.7
↑She hurried back toward Precipice with a kind of urgency. The bitch slap target was ignored, assumed out of commission. She had a body sense, too, which apparently mapped out to anyone she’d used her power on, while also helping her aim her attacks by keeping her aware of where her potential slap targets were. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.7
↑Ashley walked over and leaned against the railing next to her. Chastity could feel her presence, the physiology, the general shape of her body, with arms that terminated at the wrists. - Excerpt from Interlude 15.a II
↑Chastity had her whip out, and was using it to repel soldiers. The cracks were audible and distracting as she cleared a path for the spider to move forward. The soldiers that weren’t powered were dealing with being tugged and limited in their movements by a thousand fine pieces of thread. - Excerpt from Blinding 11.7
↑Chastity began pulling off the wicked jewelry she had on her right hand. Studded rings and rings with ornate designs. - Excerpt from Heavens 12.5
↑But she doesn’t want to be someone who goes out with someone and lies from the start. I think something bad happened once, while she still lived with her dad, when she went to school under an alias and had a boy who liked her. I think he ended up meeting her dad.- Excerpt from Heavens 12.5
↑she hadn’t felt goodwill when she’d had to rally the Undersiders to hunt down Chastity and the man the girl had dragged off. - Excerpt from Infrared 19.f
