While Priss has not received any official training in personal combat, she is capable of doing a great deal of harm thanks to her skill in "dirty" fighting which she has no qualms using to calm down the occasional unruly fan or attention-seeking police officer.
Inside of her hardsuit, however, Priss becomes an even larger force to be reckoned with. The power armour protects her from all manner of ballistic and impact weapons, heightens her reflexes, and provides her with enough firepower to turn a city block into smoldering ruin.
Priss's primary form of attack while in her hardsuit is a cannon that emits focused blasts of energy that are powerful enough to punch through a cinderblock wall or a highly-armoured Boomer torso.
The same arm that holds the blaster also holds a pair of needle cannons. These fire a pair of armour-piercing fillaments which are useful for close-range attacks requiring more precision than the larger blaster provides.
Priss's attitude can only be described as hopelessly bad. She trusts almost no one but herself, and her temper can flare to the boiling point at the most innocuous of comments. Her anarchist attitude frequently puts her at odds with the AD Police, and her capacity for violence often gets her into trouble.
It has been noted that Priss displays attitudes that range from simply anti-social to outright sociopathic and, at times, suicidal. Very confident in her own skills, Priss has been known to get into situations that are way over her head before realizing that she will require help. Despite this, she is often loathe to request backup of any sort, feeling that she should be able to handle her own problems without dragging anybody else into them.
Priss's so-called "day job" is that of a retro-thrash rocker; she is the lead singer for the band "Priss & the Replicants." Her penchant for violent and anti-social behavior makes her perfect for this role, as it allows her to tear up the stage and scream while people pay money to watch. She writes her own lyrics, which tend towards radical, anti-corporate and anti-government sentiments and is quite popular with the more anarchy-focused youth of Megatokyo. The "Hot Legs" nightclub is a frequent venue for her group.
Priss was recruited by Sylia Stingray to join the Knight Sabers due to her wild, combative personality and her seething hatred of Genom Corporation in particular. Inside the hardsuit provided to her by Sylia, Priss becomes a one-woman wrecking crew capable of destruction on a scale equalling (and some would say exceeding) that of a rampaging Boomer.
