Lourdes Chantel is a mutant member of the Hellfire Club, though, she gained no position in the club. She then became a love interest for Sebastian Shaw before he became the Black King of the New York Branch of Hellfire Club. Lourdes met Sebastian when her company hired Sebastian to help them in one of their projects. Lourdes then tried to put Sebastian away from the hellfire Club as well as its former leader Ned Buckman. Lourdes then died by a Sentinel attack which was financed by Ned Buckman. This became the reason for Sebastian Shaw to take over the Hellfire Club.
Many years later, after the foundation of Krakoa, it was revealed that Lourdes faked her death with the help of Emma Frost, as she wanted to get free from her relationship she had with Sebastian Shaw. She later started to live in Krakoa, becoming the Black Queen of the Hellfire Trading Corporation.
Lourdes is a mutant that can teleport by yielding a force field around her and go to places without covering any distance.
