Princess Jeka Wind’zzal was the heir to the throne of Orando, a low-technology member world of the United Planets. She possesses the ability to generate illusions that can affect all five senses. After becoming a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, she fell in love with and eventually married Karate Kid. Upon the death of the reigning monarch of Orando, Projectra and Karate Kid retired from active Legion of Super-Heroes membership and returned to Orando where Projectra took her place as queen. Shortly after she began her reign, the Legion of Super-Villains invaded Orando in an effort to use the planet as a vehicle into another universe. Karate Kid died to save the planet, and Queen Projectra, ignoring Legion by-laws that forbade killing, took Nemesis Kid’s life in retaliation. Resigning from the Legion at her husband’s funeral, Projectra used the warp device built by the Legion of Super-Villians to transfer Orando to another dimension, away from further “pollution” of the 31st century’s technology and dangers.

Projectra’s time with the Legion did not end there. The elders of Orando deemed that she should perform a penance for killing Nemesis Kid. Given further powers to see beyond the illusions of reality, Projectra was sent back to the main universe where she rejoined the Legion of Super-Heroes. At first she kept her identity secret even from her fellow Legionnaires, but her true identity was eventually revealed to the Legion when she was unmasked by the Emerald Empress of the Fatal Five. 

Projectra has a large number of sensory powers at her disposal, giving her the ability to discern illusions from reality, and even occasionally part the veils of time and death. Projectra uses her illusion powers subtly, to obscure or block opponents’ senses, project areas of darkness, or to startle and disorient her foes, She has complete control over the senses of others, including sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste, balance, pain, etc, allowing her to freely alter and manipulate them. She can enhance, reduce or remove them temporarily,  causing target to sense things that aren't there or prevent them from sensing things that are, cause/remove sensory ailments, etc.

Projectra's ability to see beyond the illusions of life — such as the "illusions" of distance and physical obstacles — is somewhat hard to convey in ICONS terms, even with the extra "True Sight". I had to resort to the expertise of Steve Kenson himself to help me out [Thanks, Steve!]. Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
