Nadia stands at roughly 5'5" and weighs 125 lbs. She has medium length, wavy
black hair with white strands interspersed. Her eyes typically shine a dark
olive green; however, when she begins to tap into her mutant abilities, her eyes
change to a radiant kelly green.

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. Detached and analytical, she excels at
finding solutions to practical problems. She tends to be individualistic, rather
than leading or following.
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.
Nadia is a skillful mechanic and
talented at motorsports. She is also fluent in Russian.
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.
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.

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