As a hybrid, Vera Gemini has both a human and a demonic form. Her two faces, as Belathauzer termed it. She is apparently able to shift forms voluntarily.
Magic: Vera has magical powers that are apparently inherent to her form. However, she has had to amplify her powers to achieve significant feats. She had to use human sacrifice in order to summon a Demon lord or Dark God to Earth, and had to use the Eye of Agamotto in order to create a dimensional doorway.
Telekinesis: Vera has been able to levitate herself and inanimate objects, such as chairs. She can also use telekinesis to turn said objects into weapons.
Energy Blasts: Vera has used optic blasts to strike down opponents.
The daughter of a human and a demon, Vera Gemini was scorned by both sides of her ancestry for her dual nature. She eventually came to lead the Cult of the Harvester of Eyes, dedicated to Xenogenesis, restoring to power a demon race that had ruled Earth in the distant past. Human agents were recruited, some demonstrating psychic powers and serving as Reapers of Souls (assassins) or Agents of Fortune (producing objects of value). Based out of the Mexican jungle, Vera would, via human sacrifice, return a demon to Earth, and these demons would take on human form and be integrated into society, from rulers countries to common muggers, until there would be enough demons to rule the Earth once again. Vera and her group trained the Devil Slayer (Eric Simon Payne) as a Reaper, but he quit upon learning their true intent and soon opposed them directly, becoming one of their strongest foes.
