Powers: Threnody is a mutant who’s mutation gives her a very unique link to death. This link to death allows her to sense and feed on a persons necroplasmic energies. Necroplams is the energy which surrounds an individual when they are near death or on the verge of dying. She can even survive her own death by absorbing her own necroplasm. Once she absorbs this energy she can then convert it to either generate concussive blasts of energy or to reanimate the dead, thus creating zombies.

Like a vampire she is drawn to the dead and dying. She can also reanimate the dead as zombies. Additionally she has shown the power to absorb natural energy to an unspecified degree.



Driven almost mad by her manifested mutant abilities she took to living on the streets during the height of the legacy virus. There she came into contact with a small band of X-men who tried to recruit her to there team. When sinister offered her a more sure way of controlling her powers she left with him. Over the next few years with her power under control she worked for sinister monitoring mutants for him.

When she came face to face with Madlin Pryor however she was seemingly killed after her power inhibitors were removed.

She then confronted Nate who had lost control of his power and said a tearful goodbye before returning for her child. Her current whereabouts are unknown as she retained her powers after M-day.
