Janissary (DC) (02 - Selma Tolon)
Real Name: Selma Tolon
Search for 'Janissary (DC) (02 - Selma Tolon)' on Amazon


Powers:
The scimitar that Selma carries is the source of her powers. The spell book she carries, Merlin's Book of Eternity, enables her to do magic.

Bio:
Selma Tolon, a Turkish national who earned her medical qualification in America, was working with the Red Crescent during earthquake relief when an aftershock threw her into an underground cavern. Here she discovered the mystical scimitar of Suleiman the Magnificent and a book of spells used by the wizard Merlin. She uses these to defend her native country, and to be an example and role model for other Islamic women. She has not yet totally mastered the use of the spell book, but has already gained the respect of the JLA, and was one of the heroines called in by Wonder Woman to help against Circe's recent attack on New York.
