Sound Manipulation: Shriek has the power to manipulate sound to either disorient her enemies or fire concussive blasts from her hands.
Flight: Shriek has the ability to fly and levitate objects or people possibly indicating some form of psionic powers.
Dark Empathy: Shriek can manipulate the inner fears and angers in a person’s mind and make them act on those emotions in a violent manner.
As a young girl, Shriek had a miserable childhood that eventually drove her to drugs. Her mother was ashamed of her for being overweight and she was abused by both of her parents. She became a groupie for a rock band, and a drug dealer on the side until the vigilantes Cloak and Dagger happened by during one of her deals. Having already suffered enough traumas to make her dangerously unstable, a short stay in Cloak's dark dimension pushed her over the edge into insanity. After that, she was captured and imprisoned in Ravencroft. According to her, she was also shot in the head by police and while gluing the pieces together again, the doctors apparently missed some. However, it is still unclear as to how her powers actually developed. It could be that she already had these powers but they didn’t manifest themselves until she was exposed to Cloak’s darkness.
