For untold thousands of years the Amazons favored isolation and non-interference with regards to the affairs of Man’s World, but in the 1940’s our oracles received a terrifying vision: Man would soon harness the power of the atom. Our seers foretold that Man would not only weaponize this knowledge, he would actually use it! Man’s reckless pursuit of land and territory would threaten the existence of the entire world, including our beloved Amazon Isle. We could no longer ignore Man’s indiscretion.
The First Ones elected to send a corps of representatives from amongst our finest warriors to guide Man’s fate; a “Champions Tournament” would be held to select our ambassadors. Hundreds of Amazons volunteered, but only a dozen would be chosen, one for each of our most ancient and powerful weapons. We would have a Sword Champion, an Archery Champion, a Lariat Champion and nine others tasked to put an end to war, crime and conflict throughout Man’s World.
The Archery Champion of that era, the first to be called "Amazon Arrow" was Pyrrah. She was a magnificent warrior and a noble representative of the Amazons. Pyrrah was revered, admired and beloved around the world. She continued to fight as a champion of truth and justice for the remainder of the 20th Century.
She was the ideal heroine.
Sadly that is no longer the case. You may click on some of the images below to learn more about Pyrrah and her fall from grace... though I prefer to remember her as the heroine she once was.
