Charlotte grew up in the Everglades in Florida. From a young age, Charlotte
spent her time amongst the wetlands in the Everglades, where shallow sheets of
fresh water roll slowly over the lowlands and through billions of blades of
sawgrass. She became familiar with the various species inhabiting the region. As
her powers emerged and developed, she spent most of her time interacting with
plant species such as Black Mangrove, Butterfly Pea, Brazilian Pepper, White
Fragrant Water Lily, and Cattail.
seventeen, Charlotte's parents relocated to Oyster Bay, New York. Living in
close proximity to New York City, Charlotte's physical appearance - green hair
and eyes - did not seem out of the ordinary amongst the youth who mimicked punk
and emo fashion styles. Charlotte, however, did not spend her time socializing
with people in her new atmosphere; she spent the majority of her time at the
bay, parks, or Sagamore Hill where she could engross herself amongst plant life.
Charlotte met the X-men by chance in her early twenties. At the time, the X-men
were escorting residents from the Xavier Institute while fleeing the
government's anti-mutant legislation that was trying to round up all of the
Xavier Institute's students, residents, and X-men. While the X-men were resting
up in an alcove near Oyster Bay, they accidentally crossed paths with Charlotte.
After a simple misunderstanding, they became good acquaintances.
though Charlotte didn't choose to stay with the X-men at the time, she joined
them months later when the X-men were safe to return to the Xavier Institute.
She wanted to learn how to control her abilities in order to live a normal life.
Charlotte had achieved control over her powers, she changed her mind and decided
to remain at the Xavier Institute. She did not pursue X-men status, but rather
remains at the Xavier Institute as a permanent resident. She has helped the
X-men on missions in the past, but most of her encounters with them are for
purely social reasons.
