So she's a decendant of Destiny....who do you think her mom and brother are? At first glance it seemed maybe Moira was her mother and Proteus her brother, but it doesn't fit because Moira didn't die protecting her from Kevin...Any thoughts?

Well I thin her origin will be explained maybe in a mini series, since I doubt Destiny's brother will stay dead.

@Michael the Fly: It wasn't Destiny's brother, it was Ruth's. Ruth's mother died protecting her from her brother. Is anybody aware of a story that may have involved a mother sacrificing herself to save one child from another?

Thanks for making this thread (I was wondering about it myself :) 
 
I definitely get the feeling that Mike Carey is setting us up for a more involved Blindfold story.  At least, I hope he is.   
 
My first thought was 'is Moira her mother', but surely they couldn't keep that hidden for so many years?!  It would also mean that Moira is also related to Destiny.  This would insinuate that Moira died protecting Blindfold from Proteus... I know there have been crazier retcons, but I hope this wont be one. 
 
I'm looking forward to seeing more of Blindfold's origins :)

@xerox-kitty:
I really hope that if Ruth survives Second coming Mike Carey does elabirate on her past.  My first thoughts were that Proteus was her brother, but then just thought that is too much off a retcon.  When Necrosha first started i thought Destiny was going to be her mother but now that we know she is blindfold grandmother, would that mean then that Mystique wasnt with Destiny all this time and there was somebody before her?

I think Blindfold is a very interesting character. Her portrayal in Young X-Men was a bit dumb, but Ruth's history is worth exploring.

LOL! 
 
Perhaps Blindfold's mother & brother are actually new characters?   Although... now I've said it, I doubt it myself.  It'll be like Pixie's father; he had to be a previously established character.

someone mentioned in another thread that they may retcon in order to fit Blindfold into another family.....I hope not.  
I thought maybe she might be a Rasputin since Mikhail is so dangerous....but their parents were killed by government agents wearing metal wolf suits as they were in pursuit of Illyana, so that's a no.
Maybe her parents were Morlocks....wasn't there a scene where a scaley woman was escorted through the tunnels with a babe in swaddling clothes back in the 90's? who's to say she didn't already have a kid and he got jealous? 
 
who's pixie's pop?

@Thunderscream: It'd be interesting if Blindfold's family were new characters, and therefore her brother could be a new enemy for the X-Men... unless she's somehow related to the St Croix family (Well, Monet is growing paler & paler all the time :p )

word for word

Destiny: " You asked Cyclops if i was you mother.
Destiny: " The answer is no. "
Blindfold: " No? "
Destiny: " No. A Great-Grandmother, perhaps. "
Destiny: " Near enough on your family tree to bring me to you instead of Rogue that night. "
Blindfold: " Yes. You're welcome. But then-- "
Blindfold: " --is my mother? "
Destiny: " Dead. As you we're always told. "
Destiny:  " She died protecting you. And she had no regrets, as she died, about that bargain. "
Blindfold: " Excuse me. "
Blindfold: " What was she protecting me from? "
Destiny: " Someone who you'll never have to meet now. "
Destiny: " Your brother. "

@CATMANEXE: Wow, good call!  I've forgotten most of those later X-Factor issues.  It sure does make sense, but at the same time I wonder why retcon the family to include a daughter that wasn't around before.

It seems that Mike Carey has other ideas; that we haven't met Blindfold's family yet:
 

You also wrote a great scene between Rogue and Destiny, which was awesome to see (but too bad Destiny had to go). Also, you gave us a great reveal about Destiny's connection to Blindfold, but can you give us any clue about Blindfold's brother? Do we know him already?

Hi Chrissstopher! No, he's not a character we've already met. He's a character I'd like us to meet in the future. His nature is very different from his sister's; his powers are not a million miles away from hers, but...nasty.

I agree about Trevor Chase..it should be him. Maybe "we haven't met yet?" because he hasn't shown up in recent books? meh. I think an original would kill it.

I think you don't get much clearer than 'we haven't met yet'.  Trevor Chase would be 'we've briefly met already'.  I'll be glad to see more new characters introduced.  Especially by a decent writer.

  My question is: Doesn't the line "Someone who you'll never have to meet now" imply that the brother is dead also?
 
I've only recently taken an interest in Blindfold, so I look forward to any new revelations :)

But how can Trevor be her brother if he's destiny's grandson and blindfold is destiny's great-grand daughter? It doesn't add up correctly.

I love Mike Carey, since he likes to drop little teasers that keep me intrigued: 

You mentioned a brother for Cargill and a sister for Warpath in the "Age of X Communiqués." Are these important characters for this story or just characters that may appear in future stories in "X-Men: Legacy?"

I was just trying to give a sense of a context for these characters. They don't appear in the story, and they're not referenced elsewhere. Having said that, I would like to write Gareth Cargill into "X-Men: Legacy" at some point. The only snag with that is that I've got a brother for Blindfold hovering in the wings, too. If I clutter up the X-verse with too many previously unmentioned siblings, I may get an official reprimand.

I assumed while reading Necrosha that her brother was Proteus.

Boy, her origin is deep. Love what Spurrier's doing with her in Legacy though, it was about time we had some answered questions.
