Nothing is known of her past before she became a member of the Mutant Liberation Front and fought X-force. Despite being a member of this terrorist team she saved many lives by betraying her team and having X-force save a building full of people. During the “X-ecutioner’s song” storyline she was defeated and imprisoned along with her MLF teammates. Reignfire broke them out to form a new MLF and they tried to kill Henry Peter Gyrich. Again they fought X-force, again she tried to thwart her teams evil plans by saving his life and was kicked out. She declined an offer to join X-force at Cable’s behest and went back to school to lead a normal life.
On M-day when most of the world’s mutants lost their powers she retained hers. She joined Exodus’s Acolytes along with Frenzy with whom she became best friends. On this team she allied with the Marauders and fought the x-men. When Exodus disbanded the team she went to Utopia and joined the X-men. When Legion warped time she was killed in “Age of X”.
