Sydney is a nerd grrl who discovered a set of orbs that grant her powers.
- Red: Energy Beam (Pew Pew orb, or PPO if you're hip)
- Magenta: "Lighthook" force pseudopod (current top lift 15-16 tons)
- Yellow: Telepresence and Truesight (Comm-ball)
- Green: Creates breathable atmosphere (life support)
- Brown: unknown
- Purple: Force Field with variable radius
- Blue: Flight (Fly ball, current top speed Mach 4)
The orbs appear to have a skill tree that levels up in discrete increments, by displaying glowing white dots.
