"How does that work, by the way?" Landslide asked.

"Well, what you're looking at right now is baseline Layla," Layla explained.  "The real me, underneath it all.  I'm kinda tough, kinda fast, but not really all that much.  I can always see past darkness or smoke or whatever.  I don't have to breathe.  I can be wearing whatever clothes I want, which is kind of a perk of shapeshifting.  Uh, note the eyes.  They never change-- no matter what I do, my eyes are always like this.  But then I've got... masks. Forms.  Whatever you want to call them, but they're basically complete changes.  They don't really change much once I've got them set and ready, but it can take a while for me to dream up a new one, and it gets more complicated the more I have, so don't plan on more than the six I'm gonna show you now."

She took a breath, stepped back, and changed.  Now she was six inches taller, glamorous, sexy, with long, flowing dark hair, a red-and-black dress... huge bat wings.  Claws.  Fangs.

"This is the Vampire," she said, her voice husky.  "Agile flier.  Sneaky.  Persuasive.  Still a fighter, with some nice, subtle tricks, too, to break down resistance, and hit the mind instead of the body."

She warped again, now at least seven feet tall, a wall of muscle, scarred skin, stitches clearly holding her body together, wearing ragged old clothes.  Electrodes in her neck; sunken eyes and gigantic hands.

"Frankenstein," she continued, "and I will fight you over the 'Frankenstein's Monster' bullshit, because you don't get to not call your child part of your family just because they look ugly.  Super-tough.  Super-strong.  Like, seriously, I could press a full cargo ship.  Great at grabbing things.  And the stitches, well..."

She swung an arm; it detached, crawled over to the table, brought back a slice of pizza which Monstergirl devoured in two bites.

"...Optional," she continued, wiping her mouth.  And then she warped again.  Smaller, now, but covered in fur and muscle and claw and fang.  There was no mistaking the wolf-like head, the long arms, the tail... again, the tattered clothes.

"Werewolf," she continued, her voice a growl.  "Fast and tough, talks to animals, hearing and smell as good as any bloodhound.  The nose is half the fun.  These were all the ones I had when I fought Scathach, but I've got three more by now.  So..."

Now she changed into a female figure wrapped in grey bandages, but offset with shining gold jewelry, necklaces, bracelets, a crown to do Nefertiti proud.  She was sitting on a throne of ancient stone, covered in hieroglyphics.

"Mummy," she said.  "Not the awful boring Christopher Lee version.  A ruler.  Magical."

Suddenly the throne was at the table; ghostly soldiers and spirits in attendance, serving food and drink to the wrapped, undead queen.

"I have an army of soldiers I can call; I have protection, teleportation, and a nasty curse to make someone weaken and wither.  A change from my brawling masks..."

But she warped again, and now at the table was... the upper half of a woman, formed out of slime; a lower body that was just a pile of ooze, supporting it.

"Slime," she continued.  "Tough.  Corrosive.  Sticky.  Up walls, into grates, whatever.  A fast healer, too.  Much faster than you'd think, but not like the werewolf.  I'm just already where someone else was going.  Lots of reach, lots of little tricks, but mostly good for recovery.  But I have one more, and it's my best brawler..."

She'd stretched up to the ceiling and pulled herself up to demonstrate the mobility; now, from above, she warped one last time--

--it was, in a monstrous way, glorious, almost as beautiful as the Vampire had been.  Long hair, long horns, long, batlike wings, claws, fangs.  Eyes that shone with lightning and storms.  She dropped from the ceiling, spreading her wings at the last second for a dramatic landing.  She was perhaps two inches shorter than the Frankenstein had been, before the horns were considered.

"Kaiju," she said.  "A symbol of power human works cannot resist.  Tough.  Strong.  My fastest flier.  Excellent vision.  Incredibly strong.  Throws thunder and lightning around in solid blasts or sweeping bolts.  Not much more than that, but sometimes, that's what you need."

And the Kaiju sat down to nibble on more food and breadsticks, and await questions.

"Is your personality the same or does that change too?" Paragon asked.

"There's a reason I call 'em 'Masks' sometimes," said Layla.  "It's all me.  Okay, I do play up the persona a bit, but that's... you know... acting.  Just messing around."

"That makes sense. You certainly have a wide range of powers," Paragon said.

"I wouldn't go that far," said Layla, reverting to her original shape.  "I've got some tricks, but Doc Doll probably has a wider range than me, just from all the super-science and robots.  I do have a bunch of different fighting styles, though, which comes in handy some days."

"Still, it'll come in handy, most villains can't deal with that," Landslide said.

"Fair," said Layla.  "I'll make it up as I go along, I guess.  And try and figure out what works best."

"...but not right after we eat, please," Layla said.  "Give me a few minutes to digest, at least."

"Oh, I know," said Layla.  "Won't be the first time she's beat the crap out of me.  But I have some new tricks, so hopefully I'll keep her guessing."

"Sounds like a plan to me," said Layla, grinning.  "...I guess I'm up for some post-dinner exercise, Scathach, if that's what you'd like."
