2009 World Telekinesis Competition

Team Profiles

Team Triceratops

It is not in the nature of Triceratops to play fair. The team combines the paleolithic occult powers of a professional sadist, a vagrant con artist, and a disgraced cosmonaut. All players are skilled in controlling the movement, speed and temperature of objects remotely, and alternately turn their concentrations to telepathically attacking the abilities and confidence of the opposing team. Triceratops mounts a psychic assault as synchronised and untraceable as it is devious.

Kel (real identity unknown) is a talented telepathic con artist who roamed the rail network of Eastern Australia for the past decade scamming tourists and cheating at cards. Kel recently assumed the identity of an 'emerging' artist, and is currently using her abilities to grift contemporary arts organisations for funding, accommodation and travel grants. She will be deployed between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres during 2009.

Mistress de Syphilis is widely known in the Southern Hemisphere for her successful domination of many famous names in the Astrophysic and Psychic fields. She advises her competitors to prepare for the irresistible mental pain she will exact from them. Mistress de Syphilis has relocated her activities to the Northern Hemisphere for the competition, where she will bring fresh psychic blood to the team.

Ludmila has been officially declared to be missing, believed dead, after what is believed to be the sound of her last heartbeats was recorded on a Soyuz mission that was lost in space in 1962. However, recent sightings of a person resembling Ludmila in various locations in the Southern Hemisphere have been confirmed by reports that an unidentified spacecraft re-entered the earth's atmosphere in mysterious circumstances before crashing into the Southern Ocean. Ludmila is believed to have lost one her legs during the re-entry. Although refusing to speak, or otherwise communicate, Ludmila has demonstrated that she can join forces with like spirits and has therefore joined the team Triceratops to bring her legendary talents of psychic kinesis to their mission of world domination. Ludmila remains in the Southern Hemisphere where her psychic kinetic lines of force are untraceable.
