Barbara (The Agent)
|First appearance||The Agent|
|Debut||April 10, 2009|
|Known ability||Water generation|
In chapter 9 of The Agent, Barbara gets out of a tank full of water in the back tent of a circus. She then begins unzipping from her back down the part of her costume that makes her legs look like the tail of a fish. Then, she spots Anna in the tent and calls out for someone named Doug, telling him that a kid is in the tent. A short while later, the ringmaster informs Anna that the government is coming for everyone but himself, and the mermaid performer, who is now out of her costume and standing on both feet, cups her hands. The air inside her hands turns to water, which leaks through her fingers onto the ground. Some time later, the mermaid performer huddles with Anna and the other circus performers in the dark. She and everyone else freeze as they spot lots of people moving around quietly outside.
In chapter 10 of The Agent, the mermaid performer, Anna, and the other circus staff hide in a cellar underneath the circus while agents search above them. The mermaid performer, who Anna notes is named Barbara, lies on her side with her eyes closed, but jumps at every noise.
In chapter 12 of The Agent, Barbara appears during a fight between Rachel and Janey. Barbara generates huge waves of water that crash down on the two women, momentarily stopping Janey. When Janey attempts to retalliate, a fugitive shouts a warning that gets Abe to use his power to save her.
Barbara is capable of externally generating water in her hands when she cups her hands together.
