Cynthia Childs was taken into care at age 6 alongside her younger sister Kate as social services removed them from their drug addicted, negligent parents. In care Cynthia befriended Alexis Stone, but after 7 years, all hope was abandoned of finding her adoptive parents. Her sister Kate seemed to be luckier, and though separating siblings is imperfect, she was adopted. This rejection caused much anger to rise in Cynthia, and when she learned Kate had been killed by her adopted mother, hate began to rise. Cynthia, like her friend Alexis, was gifted with natural powers of mind control. In her case, she could imbue powerful emotions on any target, emotions that she honed into matching the seven deadly sins. When powered individuals were sought during the various crises of the 2010’s, Cynthia stepped forward, but the recruiting officers could not see her value, and again she was rejected. From that point on, she vowed to take care of the only person who really mattered… herself.
