HISTORY: Virtually nothing was known about the past of the woman called the Native except that scientists in the clandestine genetic research organization Weapon X used her as a test subject, code-named Feral, possibly at the same time that the mutant adventurer Wolverine was implanted with the metal Adamantium. At some point she escaped her captors and lived alone for years in the mountains of British Columbia in Canada, supposedly spending some of that time sharing a cabin with fellow escapee Wolverine.

Recently, an offshoot of the Weapon X Program hired the savage mutant Sabretooth, himself a former Weapon X experiment, to retrieve the Native. Sabretooth tracked her down but she outfought him and fled. Sabretooth then manipulated Wolverine into finding her, after which they shared a romantic interlude. The Native showed Wolverine drawings that hinted at their past together; however Wolverine could not recall any of it. His attempts at communication were interrupted by soldiers from the Weapon X offshoot who immobilized him and captured the Native, whom they brought to The Workshop facility in Montana. Sabretooth, learning that his employers intended to double-cross him, chose to help Wolverine in freeing the Native in order to avenge himself on his employers.

While in captivity, the Native was operated on by Doctor Vapor, who removed some of her genetic material for sale to other parties and discovered that the Native’s accelerated physiology had resulted in a pregnancy from her liaison with Wolverine. Arriving at The Workshop, Wolverine confronted Vapor while Sabretooth went to slay his employers. The Native killed Vapor and left with Wolverine; however, the pair were watched by Sabretooth who promised to finish what he started. Tracking the couple, Sabretooth defeated, Wolverine and subsequently killed the Native.

DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Feral appearance.

SUPERHUMAN POWERS: The Native was a mutant who possessed a healing factor that allows her to recover from even the most severe wounds with remarkable speed. She also possessed superhumanly acute senses, as well as having sufficient superhuman strength and ferocity to allow her to successfully subdue an opponent over twice her size. The Native’s physiology was also accelerated to the extent that her body could conceive and gestate a fetus within a matter of hours.

SPECIAL LIMITATIONS: Despite the extent of her healing factor, the Native was not immortal. The Native existed in a quasi-feral state, with minimal language abilities.

PERSONAL WEAPONRY: The Native possessed six one-foot long bone claws, three in each arm, that were housed within her forearms. At will, the Native could extend or retract these claws through the skin of her hands. The Native’s claws were naturally sharp and tougher than that of normal human bone structure, allowing her to cut through flesh and most types of natural materials.
