Created as a successor to the Weapon X project, Laura Kinney spent a brutal childhood in training to be the assassin X-23. After many missions she escaped, and is making her own way in the world. She's done being someone's weapon, and now she only kills on her own initiative.
*2003: Born to Sarah Kinney, lead scientist at The Facility.
*2010: X-Gene forcibly activated with radiation poisoning, claws bonded with Adamantium.
*2011: Trigger Scent conditioning starts.
*2014: X-23 is sent on her first mission, the assassination of Presidential Candidate Greg Johnson. It is a massacre, with 27 deaths.
*March 2017: Sarah Kinney orchestrates an escape plan. The Facility bunker is destroyed, everyone inside dying except Kimura. Laura is forced to kill Sarah Kinney due to trigger scent.
*April 2017: Laura spends some time with her aunt and cousin in San Francisco, foils an attempt by the Facility on their lives, and helps them flee to Canada with new identities.
*May 2017: Laura meets Logan, in Westchester NY. After a fight, they talk and Logan gives Laura a letter from her mother. Laura is captured by a SHIELD team, but is released after the lead agent is convinced that Laura would likely be used as an assassin again by SHIELD.
*2020: Laura moves to New York City, acquires a small apartment, and starts taking on the criminal underworld.
Tact. Laura lacks it. Her upbringing didn't exactly include a lot of social interaction, and this shows in conversations with others.
When Laura sets her mind to something, she'll do it unless it's physically impossible. She's not susceptible to distractions, and doesn't give up easily.
Laura's outer shell is tough to crack, but once you've gained her trust and respect, she'd go to the gates of hell and back for you. Literally, if necessary.
Laura solves her problems in an efficient and logical manner, which sometimes (most of the time) disregards annoying things such as ethics.
Laura doesn't talk much, unless she has something to say. Growing up being treated as a weapon doesn't exactly make you good at small talk either, so it's easier to avoid it.
Claws: Laura has six bone claws, two in each hand and one in each foot, which are bonded with adamantium. The bonding enhanced her already sharp and durable claws, infiltrating and supporting the bone before the dense alloy set. Its molecular structure locked in place to form a nearly indestructible blade that will never dull. They will slice through any substance softer than adamantium, although vibranium requires more of a sawing motion and harder substances need more of a swing. She can extend and retract these claws at will as long as her hands and feet are straight when the claws emerge.
Enhanced Reflexes: Laura's reflexes operate faster than possible for a normal human, allowing her to swiftly react to threats, engage in superhuman feats of acrobatics and agility, as well as make the most out of her other enhanced attributes.
Healing Factor: Laura's body regenerates much faster than normal, able to recover from severe damage in a few minutes. This ability also keeps her from bleeding out whenever she pops her claws. By repairing muscular tearing and microfractures, she can push her body to the limits of human physique. Her metabolism is also affected, rendering her mostly immune to anything less than vast doses of drugs and poisons, as well as removing fatigue toxins.
During her time at The Facility, Laura was taught how to fight and kill at an expert level She studied martial arts and close combat, as well as the use of firearms ranging from pistols and submachineguns to sniper rifles and machine guns.
What good is a weapon if you cant get it to the right place to strike? The Facility also trained Laura in spycraft and espionage to enable her to infiltrate and locate her target, make her kill, and escape without detection.
Laura speaks fluent English, French, Japanese, and Spanish, taught to her during her time at the Facility.
Laura is adept at processing multiple sources of information, and is able to quickly respond to changing tactical situations.
In addition to the money stashes, Laura has a collection of various weapons ranging from knives to sniper rifles hidden in assorted locations. Some purchased on the black market, others looted from her foes, they're all well cared for.
When Laura's mother helped her escape The Facility, they took a bag with money and several fake identities. A decent amount of this was used to help her aunt and cousin escape to Canada, but Laura still has several bug-out-bags with cash and documents hidden in various lockers and hiding places.
It's a basic apartment in the part of town where people don't ask too many questions, and are happy to take rent in cash.
Have a Plan:
Laura's assassin training has left her almost constantly on edge, the tactical part of her brain evaluating sensations and scenarios. It's hard to make friends when part of you is thinking about the most efficient way to end their life.
Healing Interrupt: The presence of a foreign body in Lauras brain can interfere with the action of her healing factor. For instance, if she was shot in the head and the bullet remained inside her skull, it would have to be removed before her healing factor could fully repair the damage.
I Can Make You Hurt:
A girl with a healing factor doesnt have scars last, although some disappear slower than others. Years of repressing her feelings and pushing down her feelings have left Laura somewhat emotionally numb. She sometimes resorts to self harm to feel something, even if it is just pain, and establish some semblance of control.
Growing your own clone isn't cheap, especially when you've trained her as an assassin. The Facility wants Laura back, and even if it isn't always the highest priority, Kimura, Laura's handler during her time there, still holds a grudge.
To ensure that Laura would kill without hesitation, The Facility developed a Trigger Scent that could be applied to targets. After torture and psychological programming, exposure to the scent drives her into a beserker rage, killing the person marked with the scent and anyone else around them, only stopping when everyone is dead. The exact chemical formula is a Facility secret, but vials have been known to appear on the black market from time to time.
