Member of the group Morlocks. Outcasts from society, the Morlocks were a community of mutants who lived in tunnels beneath New York City and its vicinity. While in LA with friends, Tommy wanted to experience the world above, but paid witness to all her friends murdered by a mysterious group of mutants. A mutant Richard Salmons had tried to come to her rescue, but Tommy had to witness the death of Salmons at the hand of the Marauder named Harpoon. Scared, she left Richard to die. She fled scared and alone trailed and hunted by the Marauders, arriving back to the Morlock tunnels but she was incapacitated, speared in the back by Harpoon and finished off by Scalphunter. She was therefore the first person to die in the Mutant Massacre. The Marauders continued into the Morlock tunnels with intent to slaughter the rest. The Marauders were mercenaries who had been hired by Sinister and lead by Gambit, to break into the tunnels and murder the Morlocks. Most had been killed some escaped, a few with the help of the X-Men and original X-Factor.
