Background:
Grace Bachelet was an engineering student from Le Havre who came to the University of Bourgogne in Dijon to study robotics. An ambitious if quiet young woman, her dream was to be involved in the "engineering project of the Century", whatever that happened to turn out to be. During her study of robotics, the concept of "metahuman" robots captured her imagination... particularly the metahuman-hunting robot Omega. It was only natural. Omega might be the mechanical equivalent of a serial killer, but it was also the most advanced robot in the history of the science.

She became obsessed with examining Omega's technology up close and personal. It took her almost a year's worth of tracking and careful research, but she finally discovered one of Omega's secret bases under a factory in Dijon itself. She carefully snuck into it, amazed at the technology involved. Her amazement quickly turned to horror, however, when she suddenly found herself encased in a mesh of steel tentacles. She screamed in pain as silicon probes entered her body.

She'd accidentally activated the auto-repair systems. But there was no Omega present to repair.

REPAIR DAMAGED SYSTEMS.

The system started "repairing" Grace, slowing transforming her into something other than what she once was. In agony, Grace slapped her hand wildly against the controls, hoping to turn something... anything... off and end the pain she was going through. She accidentally triggered the organic healing program. This program healed injured human beings Omega brought to the base, in case the robot crusader needed them.

Grace found herself being transformed. After six hours of torture, she staggered out of the base, having had all her "damaged" systems "repaired", but being kept alive by the healing program. But what had she become? Cybernetic systems had been "installed" in her body, and programming had been "uploaded" into her brain. As she slowly assimilated the new information and the new reality of her body, Grace realized that Omega's programming was surprisingly adaptable, but far too limited in scope and purpose. She rewrote almost all of it immediately. It took her only slightly longer to figure out how to exert her new abilities.

She was found wandering through Dijon by the Cinq Fantastiques, a superhero team active in the city, and taken to a secret high-security facility in Berne for people victimized by superhuman technology. The staff at the facility had seen more than their fair share of experiments run amok and mad science gone far too mad, but Grace was in a completely unexpected league entirely. She easily escaped after reducing the facility to smoking stones.

Grace's first impulse was to immediately track down Omega and offer herself to the robot as his consort. Unfortunately, Omega saw her as just another metahuman and tried to kill her. Heartbroken, Grace shut Omega down and escaped. (Omega rebooted an hour later, and has yet to find an adaption that makes him immune to her power.) Grace faced an identity crisis of enormous proportions. Omega's programming was strong, but not overwhelming. She didn't want to purge the world of metahumans, but she appreciated that they represented a risk to baseline humans. She decided to take the middle road -- a world where baseline humanity was served, but not dominated by, a carefully controlled population of metahumans. The imposition of such order would bring harmony to the world. With the power of the metahumans harnessed for the greatest good, poverty would be eradicated, misery would be swept away, and humanity would enter a new golden age filled with technological wonders. And she would build it.

Ever since that day, La Constructeuse has used her powers to expand her resources in the hopes of bringing about her vision. Her plans are methodical and overwheming in scope. Of course the metahumans opposed her schemes, and at least three of her grand plans have been left in ruin by their interference. Still, Grace endures, looking for better materials, more efficient energy sources, and ways to craft her masterpieces and display the glory of her vision to a world that refers to see.
 
Personality/Motivation:
La Constructeuse has retreated into a cold and aloof persona when dealing with other humans. She rarely expresses herself emotionally, though she does allow herself the occasional sarcastic dig at an opponent once in a while. La Constructeuse says she's above such "petty emotional responses" such as seeking revenge, but you'd never know it from the way she tenaciously pursues those who spoils one of her plans, or the abject hatred she displays toward Omega. She claims to be "better" than the common man, yet she will pursue the battlesuit-clad romantically (she is hoping that she'll eventually find a kindred spirit, but is inevitably disappointed). She claims to be protective of human life, yet has absolutely no qualms with taking someone's life when that someone becomes a serious impediment to her plans.

La Constructeuse lives a very posh existence, in the middle of a technological wonderland with dozens of small servitor robots waiting on her hand and foot. It hasn't occurred to her that this love of luxury comes from her all-too-human side. Rather, she sees it as just her due. Her Wealth perquisite actually represents the fact that she can walk up to any bank machine and tell it to empty itself for her than her own personal wealth. Either way, she gets all the money she wants, whenever she wants.
 
Quote:
"The triumph of the common man over the special is the inevitable result of the imposition of utopia. It is inevitable. You must step aside to allow the masses their triumph."
 
Powers/Tactics:
La Constructeuse is a cyberkinetic of great power. Although physically powerful, she tends to rely on robotic minions to do her fighting for her rather than directly enter combat. If forced to fight, she'll evaluate the technological expertise of her opponent, then quickly turn one of the heroes against his team (if he has Foci she can assume control over), then will sit back and cobble together robots from the surrounding available material.
 
Appearance:
Prior to her tranformation, Grace Bachelet was a tall, Caucasian woman, 5' 10" tall and 140 pounds, with dark brown hair and eyes. Now, she's a hybrid of flesh, metal, and circuitry on a once-human frame. She now stands 6' 4" tall and weighs over 300 pounds. She wears a green shell of liquid metal, over which she wears a slightly darker green open lab coat.  Her hair and eyes are the same shade of green nowand her eyes glow a dull white. Her voice has a slightly artificial tinge to it, sounding as if she is speaking through a slightly fuzzy stereo speaker.
