Destiny is the leader of Spectrum's air defence squadron, the Angels. Born to French parents, but raised in California where her mother and father were leading Silicon Valley researchers in nano-technologies, Destiny’s life has always been dictated by her sense of adventure.
in hiking boots than high heels in her teens, the devastatingly
attractive Simone was more at home paragliding from a mountain top
than hanging out listening to pop music. Her academic life at
Princeton University was torture, but one she endured for social
life/nightlife. At the end of it, however, she delighted her parents with a first class mathematics degree - then horrified them by using it to join
the US Air Force and became a top gun fighter pilot. She went on to spend two
years as an astronaut flying shuttle missions, for the
International Space Agency, but playing nursemaid to a craft
flown by computers wasn't her kind of thrill ride so she became one of the first
to volunteer for Spectrum.
Destiny is as tough as she is sexy. In her fighter cockpit or in unarmed
combat, she's a force to be reckoned with. She has excellent
hand-to-hand combat skills, as well as superior flight combat
strategy. She's also a good communicator and a fierce and
capable flight leader. But she is devastated by the death
of her boyfriend Captain Black, and is struggling to deal with his reincarnation
as an evil Mysteron agent. Although she finds strength in the comfort offered
by Black's best friend, Scarlet, she is frightened by her growing feelings for
him and feels perpetually haunted by the ghost of Black.
The features of the CGI Destiny
character were based on those of the original Destiny
puppet. Scans of the head of the original character were
made and dozens of screen-grabs from the original 'Captain
Scarlet and the Mysterons' TV shows were also used, combined
with other elements from a variety of references that helped
refine the CGI character's features.
