Real Name: Sha Shan
Search for 'Sister Sun' on Amazon
Sha Shan was the daughter of a Viet Namese priest. When the Man-Beast came to Earth, her father learned of his plans. Knowing he could do nothing to stop the Man-Beast at this time, he manipulated events so that Sha Shan would be chosen as the balance to Korba, so that she could use her inner light against them when the time was right. Her father surrendered his title as the Guardian of Light to Sha Shan, and passed his power on to her. Though it broke her heart, Sha Shan obeyed her father's bidding, and she married Korba, and then fled to the USA with him after her temple was destroyed by a bombing mission.
Sha Shan joined with Korba, becoming the Sister Sun to his Brother Power, and they formed the Legion of Light. Sha Shan did her best to stay true to the perceived mission of the Legion, the spreading of light and love, all the while biding her time until she might have a chance to oppose the mission. She went along with him until the rally at the Yonker's Coliseum, where she used passive resistance to distract his fury from the heroes and the other innocents and pawns present.
After that she went on to marry and eventually divorce Flash, but that's beyond the scope of this profile. Maybe she'll get an Appendix profile herself, around 2011.
There is no evidence that Sha Shan retained her energy powers after the break-up of the Legion of Light, but there's also nothing to say the opposite, either.
