WOCtober Teen Superhero Parade Presents: Anita Fite a.k.a. Empress!
Anita’s grandmother was a practitioner of Vodun, who convinced her mother to perform a ritual that would give yet unborn child blessing of Oya, vodun goddess representing female power. She later trained the girl in her ways and passed on her traditional weapon called the Emperor’s Staff. Anita was inspired to become a vigilante, after witnessing Young Justice member Arrowette catching criminals. Combining her knowledge of Vodun and incredible athletic abilities, she took codename Empress and joined Young Justice.
