Agent 20 Fade: Abilities

One of the first things that were leaked about Fade is actually all of her abilities. Looking at them, it seems like we're dealing with a hybrid of Sova and Skye.

She's such a stalker, ain't she? All of these abilities really fit the Initiator class, and she may actually be the best Agent for this class if the meta is right.

Leaks say that Fade is a Turkey-based Agent. And what does she do for a living? Blackmailing people, apparently.
