Personality: Nadia is quietly forceful and uncomplicated in her desires. She is interested in how and why things work, and has excellent skills with mechanical things. She is a risk-taker who lives for the moment. She is interested in and talented at motorsports, including car racing, motorcycle racing, and motocross. She tends to stick to things until they are done. She is loyal to her internal value system, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done.

Race: Mutant

Gender: Female

Alignment: Neutral Good

Powers: Matter Generation and Transmutation. Nadia has the ability to create matter and transmutate it into anything with her mind. Her level of matter manipulation is somewhere along the lines of universal creation and destruction. However, her ability has a quantitative dimension, in that there is a direct relation between how much she can manipulate and how well or intimately it is created. She could pretty much do anything except locally change the laws of physics themselves. Additionally, Nadia's ability to maintain matter generation and transmutation over a long period of time decreases as the matter creation becomes larger. Simply put, the larger the quantity of matter creation and transmutation, the less time she can adequately maintain it.

Special skills: Nadia is a skillful mechanic and talented at motorsports. She is also fluent in Russian.

Current Profession: Student/Resident

Background: Originally from Russia, Nadia was the bastard child of a cruel Russian foreign intelligence agent. Growing up without the acknowledgement of her father, Nadia was raised solely by her mother, who did her best to instill Nadia with a concrete set of values. By the time Nadia was in middle school, her mother began dating a local mechanic who took it upon himself to begin teaching Nadia the tools of the trade. This man would serve as the only positive male influence in Nadia's young life.

When Nadia reached the age of fourteen, having become accustomed to her mother's boyfriend after three years, Nadia's biological father returned to the scene. Fearing Nadia's existence would expose his past indiscretions with her mother and ruin is governmental position, Nadia's biological father extinguished any possibility of discovery by planning to murder Nadia and her mother. When the father arrived at Nadia's home, Nadia was in the garage working on a motorcycle with her mother's boyfriend. Her father quickly killed her mother. The mother's boyfriend, having heard the gunshot from inside, moved across the garage to enter the house, only to be promptly shot in the chest as he opened the door. Nadia, witnessing her biological father kill her mother's boyfriend, was overcome with emotional distress. Enraged, Nadia's latent powers activated. As she rushed forward, her biological father pulled the trigger, but the gun jammed. As Nadia reached out, she created matter out of thin air and transmuted it into a large mechanic's wrench. Swinging wildly, she proceeded to bludgeon her biological father to death. Eventually dropping the wrench, it would disappear into the air before even hitting the ground.

It is unclear what happened to Nadia during the few months between the brutal deaths of her mother and would-have-been step-father and her appearance in minor league motorsports events in Europe. However, it is assumed that she used her skills in mechanics to join a motorsports team and travel into Europe. Once in Europe, she most likely abandoned her position as a mechanic for the motorsports team. Once realizing her own exceptional talent in motorsports, she would enter minor league motorsports events using transmuted vehicles. Her involvement in motorsports would eventually bring her into the United States and Canada.

At seventeen years of age, Nadia had lived in the United States and Canada, traveling along the coasts for a variety of races. Unlike most motorsports participants, Nadia had no team backing her. Using her abilities, crafted over the last several years, Nadia was able to create matter and transmute it into what ever motorsports vehicle was necessary for her to enter a competition.

At eighteen years of age, Nadia was recruited to the Xavier Institute where she lives and attends school.
