Like David Zavimbe she was an orphan under the care of Matu Ba. Her past was very traumatic though the details are a mystery. She left the orphanage to become a school teacher but instead found herself drafted by the government into the army. After completing her training she was placed in a small team of five. It was here that she ran into Father Lost and his cult. Only three member survived the torture and psychosis.

Changed by her experience she made it her mission to stop father lost and his cult at all costs. She adopted the identity of Dawn and employed magical swords and other enchantments as weapons against Father Lost’s Voodoo magic. Batwing came to her attention as she tracked down the cult of “The Finders” who practice Father Lost’s ritual killings.
