Just who is Hoodoo?
Hoodoo (aka Xian-Li Jiang, or just Xian to her friends!) is a member of Force Magellan - the prime super-group within the Magellanverse.
Her powers are considerable, she can teleport, levitate, manipulate energies (both mundane and arcane), transmute objects and summon powerful magical weapons. Although technology and science are weak points for her she's kick-ass at martial arts!
If you've ever read Magellan you will have probably noticed there are a lot of characters! Standing out amongst hundreds of other faces isn't easy, especially when the main story focuses on Magellan Academy cadet Kaycee Jones. Even so, Hoodoo quickly became a fan favorite during the course of the Bad Karma storyline.
Born in rural China, she was only a few hours old when her father, a farmer, abandoned her in the woods out beyond the village because she was not the son he wanted. She would have died in the wilderness had she not been found by an elderly woman who had been foraging for firewood to heat her cottage in a remote area of the forest. The woman was a mystic who named and raised Xian-Li, training her in the magical arts. Some 13 years later, following an attack on her adoptive mother by superstitious villagers a young Xian retaliated using strong but raw magics. This brought her to the attention of the super-hero witch known as Glamor (aka Mary Gemmas) from Force Magellan. At age 16, Xian entered the Magellan super-hero academy to ultimately become Hoodoo and a highly regarded member of Force Magellan herself.
