Origin

Chosen by her tribe to become one of the Black Panther's ceremonial wives-in-training the Dora Milaje or "Adored Ones," Nakia was trained for three years to serve her king. Still a teenager she was presented to King T'Challa (Black Panther), and she became immediately smitten - although the title of wife was purely ceremonial and the king never engaged in amorous relations with his servants.


Along with another Dora Milaje, Okoye, Nakia spent many years in training to become one of the king's bodyguards and his personal aide. While in America, Nakia met and became jealous of the king's former fiancée Monica Lynne. Nakia attempted to kill Lynne and was banished back to her tribe in disgrace.


Creating an alliance with the Black Panther's adversary Killmonger, Nakia was chemically enhanced and given the means to turn her unrequited love into a weapon of Malice.
