Zora was first seen hundreds of years ago studying at a Chinese temple with many other superhumans. Where she came from and how she got her powers were unknown, though she claimed that her powers developed out of her rejection of God and belief in herself as her own God.
It was at this temple where she first met Christian Walker and developed feelings for him. At his urging, she and others at the temple chose to go out into the outside world and become Earth's first superhero team.
Zora was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming as a recurring character in their creator-owned Powers series.

In the Powers show for the PSN, Zora will be portrayed by Logan Browning.
