Riachrya Chem is also a shapeshifter from the planet Proteus, but she couldn’t be more unlike her colleague, Tony. Riachrya is an astrophysicist, advanced shapeshifter, and trained combatant. While the Proteans are a peaceful race, Riachrya received extensive training in espionage when she joined the initiative. Also unlike Tony, she also has training as an astronaut and serves as Lieutenant Commander. Now she works with D.E.L.T.A., the Department of Extraterrestrial Life and Terrestrial Activities which monitors the activity of supers and is also responsible for alien relations.
Riachrya (pronounced Ri-ATCH-ryuh) is 39 Earth years old (~30 years old developmentally) and tops out at six feet and five inches. Proteans are generally taller than humans but the females tend to be taller and stronger than the males, unlike the human race. This makes her stick out like a sore thumb on Earth and while she’s a talented enough shapeshifter to augment her height, she doesn’t see any reason to.

The catsuit you see her wearing is in fact a type of armor developed by Proteans. It’s composed of metal and is difficult to break through, but it is still extremely flexible, and most importantly, shifts along with the wearer when they move between forms. Riachrya wears this beneath her clothes no matter what form she’s in, in case she finds trouble, or needs to move more discreetly. The metal can also change color and, to a limited extent, texture, for camouflage.
