I chose to represent her self-propelled aerial movement as Leaping rather than Flight because she has not sustained it for longer than a few moments and seems to need to push off from the ground.

She has very seldom made use of the Force Constructs and Move Object powers, but definitely has them, so there they are. (She used Force Constructs to contain grenades about to explode, for example.)

She might seem to deserve some special attacking power for evil spirits, but the high lethality of her attacks against such opponents seems to be rather due to a vulnerability on their part than to any special power on hers.

I tried to design the feats and combat stats to reflect her natural talent combined with some (but not yet extensive) martial training. The feats are drawn from MaMa's Kung Fu style, since her teacher seems to be Chinese, but I threw in Grappling Finesse because there was definitely some grappling going on there too.
