Rite was from an undisclosed nation in which women were stronger and more powerful than men. As she grew her pain tolerance and greater stamina made her a soldier in her people’s army. Also since women’s dialogue with the outer worlds of the human race is a more intuitive, emotionally truer thing and so rite is also a priestess. As an act of salvation for the world she was sent out as Ambassador, in its strictest literal and political definition; anointed as liberator. She joined Stormwatch and went on a few missions most notably to China where female children were being drowned because their parents wanted males instead. She rescued an entire generation. Rite was also a secret member of the “Changers” a group of super powered beings led by the High who wanted to change the world into a paradise without the need for any form of authority. Ironically it was this alliance which caused her death when the teams destroyed each other.
