|Gloria Munoz comes from a broken home that, like most, wasn't always broken. Her father was a Cuban kick boxer with his own training shop and her mother was a successful Seminole nurse. Her parents were once once deeply in love with one another. So much so that Gloria even has two younger brothers.
She was a happy child in general and Daddy's little girl, she was. As she grew, he began teaching her Kickboxing as a form of self-defense, wanting her to be prepared for anything in life with her brothers learning right along with her. She took to it well, her natural endurance and agility helping her along nicely.
However, like all good things, this too had to come to an end. At around the age of thirteen, her parents began fighting all the time and as a result, Gloria began to withdraw in on herself until she was so distant that by the time to divorce came at the age of sixteen, she was able to run away with little hesitation. Her only concern for her brothers but that was quickly pushed aside and buried deep.
For years, she managed on her own, becoming a thief, first by necessity to live and then as she gained the needed skills to be considered very good, she did it to live comfortably. She never kept what she stole though and never stole because it was something she wanted. Instead, she was a contract thief, stealing what others wanted and selling it to them for a nice profit.
It was these years that also taught her the art of seduction and how she could flirt her way to a higher price and even to get her out of a few tight spots. She had made her way to Miami, where she discovered her mutant powers by accident on a job which botched it and cost her a fair bit of money. Here, she found herself in trouble. It was a man named Sledge that got her out on the agreement that she do him a favor one day.
And he called in that favor when she was asked to bring a mutant named James to him. She did so but at a great personal cost as in the process. She had fallen in love with James. Worked her way into his life and somehow he got into her heart. He was also part of a team, which she had been a part of with him briefly, and just barely escaped them after delivering him to Sledge and even then it was only after leading them to him.
After that, she disappeared for a while, gained better control of her powers and began work as a mercenary as well. Eventually, she returned to her life as a contract thief, a position she's more comfortable in.
