The woman who would one day come to be known as Cutlass was taken to the Institute when she went blind upon the manifestation of her powers. While there she was subject to abuse at the hands of  Mr. Alexander a man who should have been taking care of her but instead used her for his sick twisted sexual fantasies [Pact #1-3].

After she was trained by the Institute she became rivals with Blast. Alongside Handgunn, Blacklight and Slam she escaped from the institute and stayed with Slam’s parents. Tensions between Handgunn and Blacklight almost destroyed the grouping. They also faced Youngblood [Pact #1-3].
