Trisha “Trish” Feliciano
Lashina is protective of all her fellow Furies, seeing them as her extended family and will go after anyone who hurts them (physically in a fight, or even emotionally – like a would-be boy friend) with a vengeance.
Lashina wants cash, and she wants a lot of it.
Trisha “Trish” Feliciano was born into a “made” family and spent the majority of her life growing up sheltered from her father’s violent life style. Then when Trish was twelve, her father was finally arrested for some of the crimes he’d committed and her world fell apart; her mother’s health took a turn for the worst and she was diagnosed with a particularly advanced case of cancer and within six months Trish was living at an orphanage where she was quickly schooled in the rough and tumble ways the world really worked – the strong took from those weaker than them.
Over the next few years Trish used a mixture of her good looks and ability to charm anyone she met with a willingness to use shockingly direct violence to get what she wanted until she was eventually sent to a “scared straight” styled boot camp that Trish ran away from within a few days of arriving. Her experiences at the orphanage allowed her to survive on the streets with little trouble and soon she had set herself up with a place to live and had quickly attracted a small following of those who wanted to be with her instead of against her.
Trish’s willingness to fight eventually brought her to the attention of a local wrestling promoter who saw a lot of potential in the young woman and his offer of easy money and fame was enough to get Trish’s attention and she soon signed a contract and began her life as a professional wrestler. It was while working that Trish eventually met her future teammates; Traci DeVito, Andrea Jackson, Debra Delano, Jessica Gold, and Mary Kesel, and they eventually formed a stable (or group) of all women wrestlers known as the Furies that grew to become popular with the crowds. So much so that at one point the Furies held all of the title belts within the women’s division and they were always part of any event their federation put together.
Despite the success the Furies experienced, it paled in comparison to their male counterparts - who were often times paid more money, were able to pursue acting careers (granted straight-to-DVD-movies aren’t all that but it pays pretty well), as well as being able to travel abroad more (as most American wrestling companies don't see the vaule of actual skilled female wrestlers, prefering to rely on a pretty face and a bit of skill instead) and better develop their reputation and chance of attracting more fans to their appearances, and Trish and the other women wanted their “fair cut” of that money but were blocked by those who ran the various federations. It was around this time that Unlimited Wrestling League was becoming more popular with the public and the members of the Furies saw their chance to make the kind of money they’d always dreamed of, they just needed to get some kind of super-gimmick.
Deciding that their best bet were to get natural
powers, the Furies put together every nickel and dime they had and went to the Power House to get them. They barely had enough, and that was even after the Furies pulled a couple lower-end robberies to boost their funds. But in the end all the women underwent various process that the Power House offered, with Trish undergoing a chemical treatment process that gave her superhuman strength and a improved resistance to injury.
The Furies ringside antics translated well in the UWL and soon all of them were enjoying their success but Poundcakes still continued to work her side job as hired muscle and at one point a representative of Grant Conglomerates approached her with a job to break into ASTRO Labs to steal a device that had belonged to the criminal Mastermind. Realizing the job was too much for her alone, Delano convinced the other Furies to help her (offering them a cut of the payoff, which was sizeable, and in Trish’s case got her a set of whip-like leather straps she could use as a weapon). Unfortunately for them several of the super-powered students of Claremont Academy were present; Sonic, Mega Star, Bowman, Elite, Whoop-Ant along with guest chaperone Johnny Rocket, and the group of heroes quickly set themselves against the Furies.
It was only because of the women’s teamwork that they were able to get away, but they were forced to leave without the item they’d been sent to steal. This left them in a lurch with their employer, who then sent the Furies out again to try and steal the device while it was being moved to an AEGIS lab a few days later. This time they ran into the full membership of the Next-GEN but despite having a better feel for the Furies tactics as well as outnumbering them, the Furies were successful in getting their prize and keeping their collective freedom.
At one point there were a few other members of the Furies; Valkyrie - a woman of German descent that carried a magical sword and enchanted armor, La Pyra – an illegal immigrant from Mexico that possessed fire manipulating abilities. The Furies were hired to rob Federal Reserve Bank in Bay City but were stopped by the Champions and both Valkyrie and La Pyra were captured and eventually went to prison, but while Valkyrie kept her mouth shut La Pyra broke under the pressure law enforcement put on her to talk about other crimes the Furies had committed and from her information Valkyrie’s prison time is almost equal to life imprisonment. The rest of the Furies have washed their hands of the two women, honestly neither of them really fit in with the original members as they saw it and they prefer to keep things as drama free as possible – something that neither Valkyrie nor La Pyra were very good at.
In response to being voted out of the Furies, Valkyrie escaped while being taken to a scheduled court appearance and went after the members of her old team to avenge her bruised pride only for her former teammates to kill her in response. None of them liked doing the murder but they all knew that Valkyrie would continue to come after them time and again until she’d done the same to them and view their actions as justified.
The Furies continue to sell themselves as muscle for hire, willing to do pretty much any job a potential employer might have in mind as long as the price was right. The Furies still wrestle too, but nowadays they’re part of the Circuit Maximus giving the women’s fights all the same flair and pop they did during their wrestling careers.
