Tess was the main protagonist in the Radioactive series. She originates from the planet Mars, and is part of the Martian race, however it is unknown from where on the planet she comes from. Tess is known for her various personalities, which have all become known and recognised in their own right. Some have even disjointed from her, and lead their own separate lives.
A novel is currently being planned focusing on Tess, however it is in very early stages. It is unknown what it will entail at this point, but it is unlikely that it will be posted on the wiki.
Tess originates from the non-fictional planet named Mars, which is the fourth planet from the sun in the solar system. Moments after her birth, Mars begins to plummet time after time and ultimately loses its resources, which leads to the planet being forced to evacuate. The Martians quickly rush to find escape pods which will transport them to the nearest and most secure planet, however when Tess' family finally reach one, there is only space for one of them to leave, forcing them to choose Tess' safety over theirs.
Tess is placed in the escape pod and manages to escape Mars, just as several explosions from atomic bombs are detonated back on Mars. She rides through space and ages heavily due to the Radiation caused by the bombings, and she suddenly crash lands in a strange environment, coincidentally destroying a diamond dome whilst doing so. She creates a crevice in the dome which allows the remaining fighters in the tournament to escape, creating a huge uproar among the viewers and regulators behind the tournament, also angering Grieve, the master behind the tournament.
Tess' personality is split in various different ways. She has a lot of alternate personalities which all have unique characteristics and traits which makes them differ from her standard self. It is also known that some of her personalities have grown away from her, and become their own individual being, living their own lives. Significant personalities may have their own articles in the future depending on the amount of content available.
Tess has a range of abilities. She is very skilled in fighting, and knows many different martial arts. She also has access to a large range of weapons, which she can use whenever she feels need be, however, she does prefer arm-to-arm combat.
Here is a list of Tess' appearances in projects.
Tess appears as one of the main characters in the game, despite not appearing until the very end of the game's story. Tess explains that she created the radioactive creatures to put Tiffany, her daughter, to the test, to see if she was really worthy of being associated with Tess. After being defeated, Tess admits her intentions behind creating Tiffany, before being interrupted by Kimiko arriving to rescue Tiffany. The two leave, and Tiffany shoots at the building where Tess was, hoping to kill her.
It is revealed at the end of the chapter that Tess survived the rubble, and was saved by an unknown person.
Tess returns in the sequel, Bad Luck. She is discovered by Tiffany which shocks her, as she presumed she was dead by the falling rubble. They decide to travel together to escape Pader City, which eventually draws Tiffany to forgive her mother for abandoning her. Afetr a bomb detonation in an army base, Tiffany is put into a coma. Tess reveals she has a secret to tell Tiffany when she wakes up in her dream.
Tess' relationship with Vermilion is very complex. It seems as though the two get along, even being sworn enemies of each other, this is most likely due to the connection they have together, as Vermilion is one of Tess' personas.
Grieve is the pure evil within Tess, separated into a different persona of demented darkness. Tess and Grieve do not get along at all, and Tess hates him for the evil he has left within her normal being.
Tiffany is Tess' genetically created daughter, who initially despised her for ditching her as a kid. Now the two get along decently, and don't bother each other too much. Tess is gradually trying to become a better mother to her.
Leire is Tess' initial partner in crime, for unknown reasons. Leire used to do all she could to help Tess to achieve her plans, but later decides to prioritize looking after Tiffany instead.
