- Supergroup: Free Agents
- Former Supergroups: Knives of Artemis
The personality of the woman known as the Sapphic Stalker can often be described at best as aloof, though more often she is overtly hostile toward men --to the point of violence if they offend her. The only fear she knows or expresses comes from her former sisters in the Knives of Artemis, for she knows that if given the opportunity, they will kill her without hesitation or mercy.
Much of the Sapphic Stalker's power comes from intense training and equipment received from the Knives of Artemis.
While trained in the use of multiple weapons, she prefers her mastery of unarmed combat when engaging foes personally.
Her martial arts training as well as the weapons and technology taken when she left the Knives of Artemis makes the Sapphic Stalker as dangerous as any ninja.
Throwing blades, caltrops, modified cloaking technology, and other high-tech gadgets make up the core of Sapphic Stalker's arsenal, however she has acquired firearms, explosives, jetpacks, and a variety of gear as the need and/or opportunity arises.
Little is known of the woman called the Sapphic Stalker prior to her recruitment into the ranks of the Knives of Artemis. As a member of the deadly paramilitary group, she excelled in her training and impressed her superiors at every turn. Some believed she might be have mutant powers, however rigorous tests proved she was merely an exceptional example of the human specimen. She passed her psychological evaluation, though its possible someone may have allowed her to slide a bit because she was such a desirable physical candidate. Having completed her training, she was inducted into the core group as one of its Sisters. In short time, however, she became disenchanted with the group's service to the Malta. She demonstrated remarkable loyalty and dedication throughout her training because, in her sexist views, the Knives of Artemis were superior to any male dominated group out there. However, that they served men in any capacity made her furious and she quickly abandonned her Sisters. At first, a renegade, she was hunted and did everything she could to lay low. When she was rescued by the rogue hero Cousin Psyche (formerly known as Queen Pneuma), she quickly agreed to join the Free Agents. Psyche explained that each individual served no one beyond themselves and the group was merely a loosely affiliated group willing to engage in various activities from simply robberies to acts bodyguard assignments or assassinations. They even served the other side of the spectrum, occasionally performing heroic deeds and dishing out vigilante justice for a price. Most importantly, they had a secret safehouse lair from which one could hide from powerful enemies. It also helped that it was headed by a woman, though the Stalker was forced to learn to tolerate the presence of male members within the group. In time, she came to grips with her apparent hatred for men to the point where she could work with them, though she still considers them inferiors and tools to be used and discarded when no longer needed.
