This one's from all the way back in high school and I had to re-visit the inspiration for it to better detail it here. It's the exception to my statement above.
The lady: The main character is a very independent and strong female who is in command of any viewed soldiers/combatants. She was born with natural athletic talent and high reflexes. For forgotten reasons, she's able to strain her body in order to speed up her movements and senses, causing a time-slowed perception effect for herself. I named her Corlone because...

He's gifted in being able to see situations from many perspectives, even foregoing grudges and alliances in order to arrive at what he considers a true path.
