Bliss and Utonium's past.

Like the original character, Bliss was the first official Powerpuff Girl created by professor Utonium. They spent a few months together as a happy family of two, until she started to showcase worrisome behaviour. She often felt ill till the point of throwing up and eventually her superpowers started to overflow, causing sudden explosions. They started out small and harmless, but became more powerful every day, until it erased the entire house.

Professor Utonium was left in critical condition and rushed to the hospital, which motivated Bliss to run away from home in order to spare him from herself. He was stuck in a coma for a fair period of time. When he awakened and was informed of the accident, he assumed Bliss to have died in the blast.

He quit the Little Girl project and grieved his daughter the following years.

One day Utonium found an abandoned, young chimpanzee walking the streets and took him home, somewhat filling the emptiness, even though the creature appeared far from tame and liked to vandalize. The emotional improvement inspired the professor to pick up the project, but he got pushed by the ape during a crucial moment, resulting into an accident similar to the one that happened years ago. This time, three superhero girls were spawned. The chimpanzee mutated into the villain Mojo Jojo after the accident.

Bliss was living by herself on an abandoned island during those years. Her outbursts continued, but were out of any living being's reach. She too was haunted by loneliness for days on end, but when it became too much for her and her outbursts less frequent, she decided to go back to Townsville to catch a glimpse of her father. She quickly found out about her sisters, which filled her with uncertainty, but it did not stop her from reuniting with Utonium. While she planned to return to her island home, Utonium downplayed the seriousness of her defect and urged her to stay and introduce her to her sisters. When he approached them, he kept all important details concerning Bliss to himself; a decision that worried her. Eventually he convinced her to come live with him again. Bliss accepted the possibility her powers would likely improve with age, though mainly did so to give herself an excuse to stay with her family and wasn't so optimistic.

Bubbles falling victim.

Hymenium

Rough sketch of Bliss and Hymenium.

Three months managed to pass without any accidents happening, and relationships were established, until Bubbles became the victim of one of her attacks. After the fact, she was drained of her chemical X and unresponsive, frightening Bliss and leaving Buttercup and Blossom to deal with it.
When aimlessly strolling alone in the night, she got approached by a stranger named professor Hymenium, who noted her on the late hour she was out. When she faced him, he commented on her physical similarity to "his creations", grabbing her attention.

The man claimed to have made her sisters together with Utonium, and that it was thanks to him they succeeded. Bliss expressed her confusion for this supposed fact, as she was told about the ape that had pushed her father into the chemical. Hymenium replied that the insult was to be expected; as they didn't separate on good terms.
Bliss shared the details of her defect with the ex-colleague and the reason she ran away, who then offered her a home and to fix her. He promised he was the only one she could turn to, and Utonium couldn't be trusted, as he never possessed the know-how to help her to begin with. She was tricked into accepting his suspiciously-worded verbal contract, whereafter the man transformed into Him and absorbed all of her supernatural properties, turning Bliss into a normal human girl. The monstrous giant that was once professor Hymenium headed out for town, leaving Bliss unsure about what else to do but slowly run after him.

The Powerpuff Girls were unable to stop Him, and as Bubbles was still weakened by Bliss, they nearly ended up dead. Utonium was then tauntingly captured and threatened with death, until Him's movements became slower. Bliss realised she was still linked to the chemical W in his body, and responded to her wants. Him and Bliss became one and able to read and understand each other's feelings. As a result, Him's arms couldn't move and he became increasingly unwilling to kill Utonium, though also learned of Bliss' hidden sadistic nature. She didn't respond to his discovery and used her stolen powers to force his clawed hand into his own neck, securing Utonium's safety. Him then disappeared in a burning flash, whereafter Bliss turned back into a Powerpuff Girl.

The next day Utonium had nursed the girls back to health and insisted that Bliss stayed and let him fix her, but after everything that happened and what Him told her, she was still emotional and declined both offers.


The creation of Bliss Edit

Bliss was one of the many attempts to create "the perfect little girl" and the first attempt that actually spawned a living being, thanks to the accidental addition of "Chemical W". Before that, Utonium only tried sugar, spice, everything nice, and random fluids that would bind these ingredients together.

Chemical W was a prototype, of which the ingredients were never entirely known or written down, as Utonium confessed to her years later. The chemical itself was not created with the intention to use it for his Little Girl project, but a seperate creation. It was of importance to all of his future work, which is why he continued perfecting it, even after the Little Girl project was halted. The newest prototype was called "Chemical X", which was later used, again by accident, for the creation of the Powerpuff Girls. This time Utonium recorded his work, to ensure his new daughters' safety and future, even though they appeared to be flawless superheroes who are not in need of it.
Because Bliss' creation was mostly unrecorded, trying to fix her is difficult and dangerous.

Chemical W was raw and unfiltered in comparison to Chemical X. It more or less inserted the power all three Powerpuff Girls shared into one body, Bliss, making it extremely unstable. Another feature of the chemical is that it spawns an unnatural colour palette; which is noticeable, as Bliss has blue hair and cyan eyes. Of the three Powerpuff Girls, only Blossom shares part of this trait by having pink eyes, showcasing how docile Chemical X is in comparison.


Personality Edit

Blisscomic4

Bliss showing sass.

Bliss is a healthy combination of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup in the sense she is intelligent, extremely caring, but loves sarcastic humor. She thinks honesty is important, making it impossible for her to (comfortably) lie to someone, and is willing to sacrifice herself for someone else's happiness or well-being. This personality trait is what prevented her from coming back home for 8 years.

While she can be selfless, she is often overcome with feelings of envy towards the love and attention Utonium has given the Powerpuff Girls during her absence.

Bliss expressing her worries for Utonium's decisions.

She feels her presence to be unnecessary and intruding, despite being a fully accepted member of the family. She normally makes no room for these negative emotions and replaces them with almost motherly adoration for her younger siblings, but her lonely past makes it difficult at times. Nevertheless, she keeps most opinions to herself, unless she is assured that sharing them has a purpose, meaning Bliss is a very uncertain person in general. Utonium tends to be the one person she goes to for help.

Bliss has a strong love for Utonium and most of her thoughts and worries involve him. Unlike her sisters, she calls him "dad".


Appearance Edit

Bliss

First design of Bliss (2017).

Bliss has long, dark-blue hair with a hairstyle that somewhat resembles Buttercup's and Blossom's. Her skin is dark and her main colour is cyan. Her hair lights up in the same colour when she gets one of her attacks.

As a 13-year-old, she is taller than her sisters. Her clothes are still from when she was their age; and she wears a cyan dress that's stretched out, ripped white leggings, and black shoes with snapped/missing top belts. While her attire is too small for her, she thinks it looks cool.

Trivia Edit

  • Bliss does not have the full name "Blisstina", or any of the other canon names given by professor Utonium in the show.
  • Professor Utonium wanted to create the perfect little girl/superhero in response to the Powerpuff Girls having traveled back in time and saving him from Mojo Jojo.
  • Besides her usual attire, Bliss also likes to wear the orange sweater professor Utonium wore on the day of her birth.
  • Generally speaking, Bliss does not use her superpowers in fear it'll activate an outburst. Even the power of flight is only used when needed.
