An orphaned from the war torn Balkans, she was taken into the service of Sebastian Shaw and has worked unerringly for his benefit - and by association, that of the Hellfire Club - for many years. Her Mutation gives her powerful mental abilities of analysis, prediction, memory and organization, and makes it difficult to read her mind by psychic means.

1992: Tessa is born to unknown parents in the Balkans.

1992-2009: At an early age Tessa's frightening intelligence becomes evident, ostracizing her from fellow children and most adults. Eventually her parents are killed in the fighting that raged through the wars in that region, and Tessa eventually fell into the hands of an ambitious Russian Mobster who used her talents for analysis to maintain the upper hand in negotiations and business with the help of her observations. All the while treating her like a dog. Tessa dispassionately does the job that keeps her fed, until the day her employer shared a meeting with Sebastian Shaw. With her abilities she saw quickly that he was hopelessly outmatched by Shaw, and, seizing a desperate opportunity, began to advise the mobster incorrectly that lead to him inadvertantly admitting to facts that revealed his attempts to cheat Shaw in a clumsy attempt to save face. In the aftermath, the mobster and his men were all dead. Shaw, his men, and Tessa were not. Recognizing her part, and curious of her talents, Shaw offered to let Tessa come with him. Tessa accepted.

2009-2020: Recognizing the depths and potential of Tessa's unique Mutation, Shaw quickly decides he wants to utilize her talents. To this end, her establishes her citizenship and pays her way through college, which she breezes through in record time, to create the bare minimum cover for her existance in his employ. Shortly after her graduation, she came to work as his personal assistant - both in reality, and as an outward cover - while secretly serving as a perfect living database of all knowledge and encounters he wanted to be able to recall, using her abilities to analyze situations and the potential outcomes of any give action. She has served him with unwavering loyalty, and often finds herself in the darkest inner workings and sanctum of the Hellfire Club as the assistant to the Black King.

The Living Supercomputer:
Tessa is an uncommonly quiet and composed woman who behaves - almost unwaveringly - in a businesslike and professional manner, her composure impenetrable enough to disguise any outwards interest or feelings, should they exist at all. She is blunt with facts and assessments, and can appear inconsiderate. With her powers of analysis and prediction, very little truly surprises her, and she tends to see the world - including people - in terms of data and variables, seeming to have found little use for other people. The only possibly exceptions to this are Mutantkind, with which she has found a place after years of exploitation, even if she is arguably still being exploited (and she knows that); and Sebastian Shaw himself, who she perceives as the inevitable winner of the grander conflict and ambitious he engages in, regarding him as an absolutely remarkable person. Regardless of her motives, she has proven unwaveringly loyal to Sebastian Shaw, and, by proxy, the Hellfire Club.

Mental Capacity:
Tessa's mutation has given her an incredible ability to process and analyse information she hears, sees, and reads; storing all of it with photographic memory to be called upon at almost any time. She can use this analytical mind to predict the actions of others, and the outcomes of possible actions with startling accuracy, and can compartmentalize tasks to multitask with alarming ease. Because of the unusual, convoluted structure of her mind, it is unusually difficult to read her thoughts with psychic abilities.

Tessa has had basic training in the use of pistols for self defense. She is not a marksman, but she can use it without hurting herself, or those she doesn't intend to.

Tessa is an immaculately organized woman, and uses this skill to the benefit of her employers.

Tessa has had training in judo for the sake of self defense. She can take down attackers with the benefit of surprise, and deal with average humans without it. She likely would not last long against a truly skilled opponent.

Tessa is in the employ of the incredibly wealthy and powerful Sebastian Shaw, and may - at his command - make use of many of his assets, resources, and connections.

The Hellfire Club:
Tessa is close to the inner workings of the Hellfire Club by association with Sebastian Shaw, and could conceivably draw upon their resources or their members if needed; though not on her own authority.

Singleminded Devotion:
Tessa's devotion to Sebastian Shaw is seemingly absolute, and she will likely go down with that ship should it ever sink, regardless of whether the opportunity to abandon or turn on him arises.

Tessa is not a... traditionally charming woman. Though possessed of a certain dry with that is usually indistinguishable from seemingly taking things too seriously or literally, Tessa is unlikely to sway anyone to her side with personal charisma alone.
