McIntire is the daughter of Ara Cangusso, a Brazilian/Korean business woman, and Lucas McIntire, a Scottish/New Zealander gentleman’s club owner. The couple moved to Las Vegas, where the subject’s father opened a gentletmen’s club called “Seventh Heaven”, which quickly became the most popular such club in Nevada. The following year, the subject was born. By the time she had turned one, her father’s establishment had become so prosperous that the McIntires opened several more locations across the country.
As a child, the subject showed remarkable talent in several forms of dance as well as gymnastics, Tae-Kwon-Do and Capoeira. At this time, she won a number of national and international beauty pageants. As she got older, she began participating in a number of dance, gymnastics and martial arts competitions, never once coming in under fourth place. At 14, the subject took fourth place in Tae-Kwon-Do at the Junior World games and second in gymnastics. In her first outing in the Junior Olympics, she won a gold medal in Tae-Kwon-Do, and the silver in gymnastics.
Although she continued to compete, the subject began pleading to work at her father’s establishment, finally being given the opportunity when she turned seventeen. She excelled in this also, winning the ED Award for ‘Newcomer Entertainer of the Year’. The following year, she won several prestigious awards including ‘International Showgirl of the Year’, ‘Club Favorite Entertainer of the Year’ and ‘Overall Feature Entertainer of the Year’.
By the time the subject had turned twenty, she was a multi-millionaire. When she heard that Ellison Enterprises would launch a commercial spaceliner, she was intrigued. She had always been told that the stars were the limit with her and now was her chance to truly be among the stars. She spent millions to be one of the lucky eighty-nine passengers of Ellison’s spaceliner but she soon discovered that no amount of money could buy her a ticket.
To her surprise, McIntire anonymously received a ticket for the maiden voyage of Earth’s first commercial spaceliner, The Destiny, a few days before the launch. The flight was picture perfect until The Destiny suddenly and inexplicably disappeared from every tracking station on the planet. When it mysteriously reappeared twenty-three minutes later, the craft had suffered catastrophic structural damage and nearly all the passengers and and one had tragically perished, miraculously the sole surviving crew member brought the crippled spacecraft back to Earth but the survivors had all been altered during “The Incident”.
The subject’s body underwent a radical metamorphosis: her skin’s pigmentation took on an almost fiery hue and her eyes now glowed yellow. It was later discovered that she had gained the power to project super-heated plasma and solar radiation. She could also fly while her body became sheathed in a corona of flame. At first, the subject fell into a deep depression but soon came to the conclusion that she had been ‘chosen’ to become a defender of those weaker than herself. Dubbing herself Solaris, she threw her lot in with the remaining survivors of the ill-fated Destiny, who had decided to remain together and to use their newfound abilities to protect others from the unknown.
