"Call me a cliché, but my childhood was not a pleasant one. Regardless, it's the one I got and I'll be damned if I didn't learn a lot growing up. I only wish there were a few more happy moments along the way."

In the summer of 1993, Jamie was born into the arms of Ellen and Robert Hudson, residents of Westside and married purely for their child's sake. The family was under the constant strain of poverty and dysfunctionality. As an infant, Jamie was a frustrating baby, or more likely she was frustrating due to the arguing between her parents. Ellen and Robert's relationship was made on thin foundations and the only thing preventing them from going their separate ways was the screaming child in the background.
Going into school, Jamie's home conditions were no secret. Under the scrutiny of authority for any sign of bad behaviour and at the mercy of more privileged children, Jamie was stuck in the middle of social and legal antagonism. Jamie was intelligent, she had the potential to be a great student but chose to hang back in the shadows of lower grades. Growing up through the years, Jamie found her niche as someone to be feared. Petty theft from other kids and a few well-placed rumours about her neighbourhood granted her solitude from other children.
Her parents struggled to cope the whole time, when money came in, it went to essentials. Any spare cash fed dangerous habits for themselves. Their bond together lasted as long as their next high, Jamie slowly lost meaning as she grew. By sixteen, Jamie chose to leave. Having dealt with her parents' drunken stupors and drug addled insanity for years, she felt she faired a better chance at life on the streets. This also meant, quitting school altogether.

On The Streets

"My late teen years, those really define who I am. Nothing was tougher, I lost count of the times I considered going back to my parents. But every time I stuck to my choice and battled through each day. I was a criminal, no doubting that, but not out of malice. I needed to live, and at the time, there was no other alternative."

There were no true grand moments during her time on the streets, it was simply a long arduous time of going through each day trying to stay alive. The first year was scariest for Jamie. She was under no illusion that the darkest of the dark would be out to get her. She had taken what precautions she could against predators. A couple of knives, one plain to see, another hidden under a coat that wouldn't see a washing machine for the next three years.
Jamie encountered the sickest of the sick and drew blood with her knives on more than one occasion. She made friends too, the right friends. Over the years she developed a reputation, just like she had in school. She wasn't someone feared, rather respected as a woman who merely tried to stay alive each day.

"That Jamie girl, yeah, don't mess with her. She may not look much, but she'll cut you if you cross her.
That's what they used to say about me. I was glad for it, it meant that I could be homeless in relative safety."

During her time on the streets, there were two things that remained constant for Jamie. The first being that she always kept her eyes on the sky, because each day there would always be super heroes soaring above. And there was no greater dream for her than to be one of them. Even if she couldn't be super, being able to help would suffice. Second thing, the desire for money. Every fibre of her being needed money, it didn't matter where it came from. Money meant food and food meant living. There was no materialistic desire within her, it was far more primal than that. It could even be said that this primal desire is what kept her alive and what paved the way for her future.

Becoming a Hero

"Since becoming a hero, I've taken a lot of beatings. Nothing has even come close to the pain I felt when I gained my powers. But you know what? It was fucking worth it."

July 2013, Little Italy once again descended into a fire fight between Purple Gang suits and Heroes. Jamie had encountered these fights before and knew exactly which side she stood on. She was not afraid, she did not hide in the shops like other civilians. She acted as a radar, watching for foes and pointing them out. Her influence may not have been super powered, but she acted as a brilliant coordinator and reduced casualties dramatically. This day was different to other days, however. When victory seemed assured the battle was far from over. True villains arrived, villains with all manner of malicious powers. Worse still, Jamie, an innocent bystander, was caught right in the middle of it. Knowing she was in over her head, Jamie tried to take cover in an alley, but instead took the force of several beams of magical and technological energy. Her cries of agony were heard by a hero named Bastion (@Wafflechan) who came to her aid and carried her to safety...only to be severely wounded by an exploding coin pouch. Jamie's powers awakened through the cocktail of energies, but without any control, Bastion was hurt. However, he did not hold a grudge and even asked her to become his partner in heroism. Feeling she owed him a debt, Jamie agreed, joining Bastion's side as Change, The Economancer.

Eternals Inc.

"You want to know something? Without the Eternals I'd be one dead superhero. They're my family and I wouldn't give them up for anything. They've helped me become the hero I am and have supported me through some of my hardest times. In every fight I will have their backs and I know they will have mine."

Bastion and Change spent time together as a duo, handling a lot of street level crime and making a name for themselves. They became more like siblings than partners, though Change would never admit to that. Out of costume, they were Oliver and Jamie. Oliver the idealist and bright light of the pair, Jamie the realist and avid fan of Anarchy. On their downtime, the pair took a trip to Club Caprice and as fate would have it, they met Anarchy! Jamie, of course, was completely composed as Oliver physically pushed her towards her idol. Anarchy, her friends and the heroic pair took the party to Anarchy's apartment where Oliver and Jamie revealed they were heroes. Eternals, Inc. was mentioned but the idea of joining wasn't. Jamie spent more time with Anarchy though now she called her Vi, and Oliver looked into Eternals, Inc. it seemed to be a good next step for the pair. Eventually Change and Bastion landed an interview with Stopmotion and by the end of it, they were members. It should be noted, however, that Change eventually left Eternals, Inc..


Events after joining Eternals, Inc. are widespread and complicated and so will merely be detailed in a list. Efforts have been taken to keep them in chronological order but cannot be guaranteed, some major Eternals Plot Lines have been omitted for ease of reading and timeline simplicity.

"I swear this job NEVER gets old!"


Change in uniform full color 2 by chou roninx-d71c74d22.png


  • Economancy - Her primary ability and namesake, Change is capable of moving money with her mind. There are limitations to this ability, but also limitless potential:

- Monopoly money is not valid.
- 'Trade' (furs for food etc.) does not apply to her powers.
- Alien economical systems can apply, provided Change has knowledge of them and how they work.
- Primarily sticks to small coins of multiple currencies.
- Credit and Debit card holders beware...

  • Econo-Ignis - Her secondary ability and main offensive outlet, Change is capable of causing coins to explode or burn at a temperature high enough to create blue flames.


  • Coin Cannon - Used on one occasion during the pursuit of Negative Fifth. As a red herring Negative Fifth brought down a meteor that would collide with Rio de Jeneiro. With this technique, Change constructed a huge cannon made of coins to create a concentrated blast of molten metal. Needless to say, Rio de Jeneiro is still standing today.
  • Burning Bond - A play on two meanings, the burning bond is a creation of two coin-chains wrapped around Change's wrist then set ablaze. These chains can be used as weapons but are primarily used to bind targets. While the chains can be broken, Change rebuilds them quickly, in fact breaking them can even allow her to rebuild them and trap her target in the new chain.
  • Rain Money - Change's iconic technique and perhaps most favoured method of attack. Change raises a large number of coins above and area and, surprise surprise, proceeds to make it rain flaming money!



  • The Nickel Dusters - An invention of her own, Change has a pair of bracers embedded with nickels. The nickels have held their value and can be ignited at will, providing Change with a BURNING punch. She wears these while in civilian clothes and under her gloves when in costume.
  • Body Armour - Change's costume sports some lightweight armour, capable of withstanding heavy impacts and gunshots.
  • The Scarf - Change's scarf is made of dyed metallic thread. It can withstand roughly the same damage her armour can and is fireproof. WARNING: Getting hit by the scarf will hurt.



  • Oh God it hurts! - Change is human through and through, she possesses no healing factor or enhanced defences.
  • Please don't hurt them! - A common weakness amongst heroes, holding a loved one or civilian at gunpoint will get her to dance to your tune.
  • Get out of my head! - Mental defences? Nope.
  • RAGE! - Change's quick temper and fiery heart can lead to her making rash decisions that can put her and her allies in danger.

Anarchy friendbutton.jpg
Anarchy "I've always been a huge fan of Vi and were it not for her, I'd never be in Eternals Inc. While we don't spend as much time together as we used to, I still regard her as one of my best friends and greatest allies."

Colosso friendbutton.jpg
Colosso "Michael. He's a big character (pun intended) and a pleasure to work for. I'm always amazed by how he can maintain his positive attitude while leading such a large team of diverse individuals. I do worry about him sometimes though, with his head slapped on so many cereal boxes, the safety of those he cares about could not be more precarious..."

Rhapsody2 friendbutton.png
Rhapsody "I do like Rhapsody. She's one of those people always trying to do the right thing. I think she's going to be a great mother. Heck, maybe in a few years Nika will take over and be the next Rhapsody.

Natasha friendbutton.jpg
Divael "I do love Divael, she's got a great heart and powers that have saved a great many lives, mine included. We don't talk nearly as much as we should but I know I can always turn to her for assistance when I need it."

Jericho friend button.png
Jericho "Charming on one side, intimidating on another. I've seen two sides of our 'James Bond' and I wonder which side symbolises the true Jericho. Regardless, him and Rhapsody seem to have great chemistry and if that sort of bond translates to teamwork while on duty, who am I to judge?."

Mr5th friendbutton.jpg
Mister Fifth "Fifth...he's a great many things but for me...for me he is my kindred spirit. Despite what he is, I love him dearly, perhaps more than he realizes. His serene smile and steady hands are a source of comfort and stability for me. If ever my fiery spirit blazed beyond my control, I know Fifth could calm me."

Pulsar friendbutton.png
Pulsar "Amber is a bundle of smiles and joy within Eternals Inc. She has a brightness to her presence that spreads to everyone. When things are at there worst, I know Pulsar will be the one to keep us all smiling."

Rocko friendbutton.jpg
Rocko "Rocko odd one. I have no idea what to think of him. He's big, green and yells a lot. He also loves...some sort of green doughnut. Despite his imposing appearance he's a good man. In honour of our 'Supatroll' I say...troll is TROLL!"

Silly sally friendbutton.png
Silly Sally "I actually really like Sally, I'm not sure why. I don't see her much but when I do, I treat her like a little sister. I'm not sure if I should or why I treat her that way but she doesn't seem to mind, or even notice. Plus it's so cute when someone honks her nose."

StopMotion friendbutton.jpg
Stopmotion "Caio has recently become a good friend to me, someone I can talk to about things I'd never discuss with another soul. We've both lost someone dear to us and perhaps it's that understanding that has brought us together."

VS friendbutton.png
Vespula Sting I'll never forget the day Vespula Sting poisoned a detective with laxatives. He does everything so dramatically I have to wonder if he views life as one big comedic TV show."



Change in casual wear by chou roninx-d71bm7l22.png
  • Delinquent Hair Taking inspiration from Anarchy, Jamie dyes her hair. For one, she hates her natural white hair. She is also of the stern belief that blue hair looks "FREAKING AWESOME!"
  • Scarf of Asskicking Change has always had a ragged brown scarf around her neck during her life, however, her current scarf is a duplicate of the one she had as a teenager. Crafted from a metallic fibre, it acts as some seriously stylish neck armour.
  • Power Tattoo Her tattoo of a burning coin was inked in for free by Anarchy. It doesn't have any special properties but, Jamie likes it all the same, if only to advertise her awesome powers on her right arm.


  • Hot Blooded Much like the burning nature of her powers, Jamie herself is a passionate force to be reckoned with. Whether it's her business ventures in Heads & Tails or a villain on a rampage, Jamie doesn't hold back.
  • Socially Awkward Hero Despite her courageous nature and general fiery determination, Jamie struggles with a lot of social interactions. Lavish parties render her a mere wallflower and approaching someone she has a crush-- And she's gone...
  • Humble Hero Jamie is no glory hunter. She wishes only to make her mark on the world as someone who made it a better place, nothing more. Her view is that success is marked by how many lives were saved, not by how loud the grateful crowd cheers.

Combat and Skills

  • Personality Powers Jamie's power stemmed from her obsession with money. Before she became a hero, every coin she held meant a chance at surviving another day. To her, money is more than just purchasing material goods, it is a resource to assure survival. With her powers, she can use money to assure the survival of others in the face of danger.
  • Playing with Fire Let it all burn! Jamie's all about fire and explosions!
  • Elemental Punch With the Nickel Dusters, Jamie's foes best fear the burning blue fist she can deliver.


  • For Great JusticeTrue to her life-long dream as a bringer of justice, Jamie is a classic hero and will do everything in her power to uphold the law and order, no matter where she is.
  • Good Feels GoodChange has always lived her life with the idea of passing away knowing she was a positive influence on the world, that she helped make it a better place. Doing good for the world is a core part of her existence.
  • Screw the Rules! I'm doing what's right! Jamie often comes up against the authorities for defying orders or ignoring some laws in her efforts to stop villainy and protect the innocent. She's not popular with the MCPD or PRIMUS despite her record as a successful heroine.



  • Jamie has a cupboard in her kitchen that she tells nobody to open. The truth is the cupboard is filled to bursting with coins and people who open it may get crushed under the weight.
  • Her necklace is a coin from a realm called Nimoth.
  • Jamie has had many hair colours. She was born with black hair before dying it dark green. She then dyed it blue and purple before finally dying it light blue.
  • Jamie's eyes used to be green, however upon gaining her powers they became light yellow. It took her a while to notice the change.
  • While Jamie often makes elaborate hand gestures while fighting, her powers do not actually require her to use her hands at all.
  • Jamie can reach speeds of around 60MPH through the rapid combustion of coins attached to her boots.
  • Jamie's flight capabilities are limited to two options. Rocket forward in a straight line extremely fast, or hover awkwardly.
  • One of Jamie's pouches is a bottomless bag Divael gave her for Christmas.
  • Change can play piano and guitar. She used to sing for her fellow Eternals at events or meetings.
  • Jamie's faceclaim is Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
  • Jamie's voiceclaim is Riven from League of Legends (Cristina Valenzuela).
