Powers/Abilities: Fahrenheit can manipulate heat at a molecular level, and is able to agitate the molecules inside an object; if the item in question was combustible, it generally would burst into flames. She learned how to create thermal updrafts using her power, allowing her to fly. She can also devine the nature of fires, even ones that have been distinguished, a facet of her abilities which made her a useful investigator.
History: Like many people around the world, Lauren Pennington had unknowingly been mutated by alien energies from a comet which had passed near the Earth. An otherwise normal American girl, when her powers were triggered, she unintentionally set fire to her home, burning it down, and killing her father and everyone else who was inside, except her.
Trying to cope with this tragedy, she was recruited into U.N.'s Stormwatch team, where Synergy fully activated her abilities, allowing her to control them. She served with distinction for many years, only to die when Alien xenomorphs invaded the Skywatch satellite. Lauren was used by the aliens to incubate one of their young, which burst from her chest when it matured, killing her.
