Klavdiya was born before the turn of the century in post-Cold War Russia. Though she grew up in uncertain and confusing times, with a country constantly in flux, she - with her parents' guidance - pushed herself to excel and pursue the one avenue all seemed sure would never diminish in need, especially in the midst of such uncertainties: the military.

She managed to get into Lomonosov with her good grades and determination, and joined their cadet training program, managing to graduate with a junior officer's commission to the Russian Army. Showing a particular skill for tactical analysis and sharpshooting, she was promoted quickly after specialized training and joined the Spetsnaz, becoming a team scout sniper. She excelled in the tightly-focused team environment of the Spetsnaz, and found their closely knit comraderie very comforting and reassuring.

Eight years ago, unfortunately, all of that changed for Klavdiya. Her team was assigned to border protection patrols in the Siberian taiga and up into the mountains bordering between Siberia and northern mainland China. Klavdiya was on overwatch for her team, scouting ahead to various points and then settling in to keep an eye - and a scope - on them as they moved ahead. She had a viciously violent encounter with a tiger, and was found hours later, unconscious and near-death, badly mauled, after going incommunicado. Her team carried her out of the mountains for a medivac chopper, and she was returned to base for medical assistance.

When Klavdiya arrived, the medical personnel frankly expected her to expire given the severity of her wounds. Yet even as they prepared an operating theater, her body began to knit itself back together. When the surgeons discovered this, they set her bones and splinted her limbs, doing what they could as quickly as possible, and then documented her body's rapid recovery.

Klavdiya's recovery was deemed miraculous, to say the least. She not only survived, she was up and mobile within days, and fully operational within just over a week. Even more astounding was the complete lack of scarring from her injuries. And all of this was reported and documented.

Not at all sure why any of this was happening, Klavdiya was just glad to get back to her unit. When they were transfered to Chechnya she went with them, returned to her unit and happy about it. But all of that disappeared when power-armored soldiers in black closed in on the unit and presented orders to take her into custody. Afraid and confused, suddenly abandoned by her own team who pulled back rather than closing in around her as she would have expected, she acted swiftly on pure instinct, using the same sort of tactics she had been trained to use to create an opening, run, and hide.

Klavdiya had no idea who the soldiers in powered armor were, but she knew she had no desire to become someone's lab rat, so she ran far and fast. She didn't know what had happened to her, or why, but she did the best she could to disappear. She left her home country, slinking across the seas, and took to surviving on the streets of the admittedly much softer United States. To start her efforts were focused almost exclusively on survival and secrecy. But she soon began figuring out some of what had happened to her, and why, and what she was going to do about it.

Klavdiya eventually encountered others who knew more of what had happened to her than she did, those who could explain the new 'rules' and boundaries of her life, and help her to learn some measure of control over the very dangerous beast now sharing her body and soul. She understands now that should she become careless, she could in fact inflict this same curse upon another, and she has striven to avoid that outcome by all means necessary.

Klavdiya does not yet know the origin of those who came intending to capture her, though she still believes them to be an ongoing threat. She has turned instead to remaining well hidden, living as best she can within the community of the homeless on the streets of Mutant Town in New York City, a place where being odd or different is taken as the norm and not questioned as it might be elsewhere. Over time, she decided to organize the homeless there as a coalition for mutual support and protection. They call her the Hunter, and themselves the Pride.
