Quoted!

Rachel is a time travelling mutant from a really awful reality.

Reputation

Rachel was once the avatar of the cosmic entity known as Phoenix. Rachel also had some claim to fame as a member of a UK based team.

Biography

In the far future, in a reality much different to this one, Rachel was born to parents Jean Grey (Phoenix) and Scott Summers (Cyclops) of the X-Men. In Rachel's home reality, a Sentinel known as Master Mold would make a very critical artificial intelligence decision, the only way to stop mutants is to stop all humanity, for humans would continue to create mutants. Thus began a horrific turn in this world, as Sentinels turned on their creators and started taking control of that world.

At the tender age of fourteen, Rachel would be the only survivor of an attack on Xavier's Mansion. She would witness the death of the man she considered a grandfather, and be captured into slavery.

Rachel was tortured, conditioned, and marked as a hound, a mutant tracker. She would be forced to use her new skills to hunt down mutants that had escaped the initial onslaught of the Sentinel attacks. She hunted down friends, family, loved ones, and strangers. She was nothing more than a hound, a dog trained to hunt down part of its pack.

Eventually, Rachel would escape that reality, she believed she was travelling through time to a point in her reality, when in fact she travelled instead to this one, a timeline completely different than her own.

For awhile Rachel joined up with the X-Men, yet she was still too scarred and broken from her own reality. She lashed out, let her temper get the best of her, and eventually her temper lead her into a clash with one of the X-Men. The result of that clash left her open for attack, and she was captured by a being from yet another dimension itself!

For a time Rachel was a side show exhibit for this being from another dimension, yet through the help of a friend, Rachel was able to escape that dimension and return to this one. Rather than joining back up with the X-Men, Rachel went abroad with a few friends and helped out in the UK for awhile.

After many adventures through space and time, Rachel would eventually leave that team. After a few adventures through time and space, again, mostly on her own, when Rachel returned to this reality, (unsure if this was exactly the same one she had left before or not, but frankly it didn't matter), she decided to take a little break from it all. For the past several months Rachel has decided to live life in a manner as normal as she can get. The thing is, Rachel is simply not a normal person, and normal life? It bored her senseless. So, she is on her way back to the X-Men, hoping to once again be part of that family.

Character Details

To sum up Rachel in one word would be to call her a survivor. Rachel has lived through a post apocalyptic world, has been put through hell and back, and she's always managed to survive. While she may have been beaten down as a child, now that she is free from the Sentinel's programming, she has only become stronger because of it. She will never be broken or manipulated again, and woe be to anyone who may try.

Rachel's personality is shaped due to her past, and yet, she is now learning to not ever let it define who she is. She is a strong willed, determined, and vivacious young woman who's overcome tragedy and even temptation (with the Phoenix Force).

She's still haunted by her past, though it usually only shows itself in nightmares, guilt ridden moments when her past echoes to the forefront of her mind. Nightmares that force her to re-live her days as a hound, sometimes over and over again.

While the determination to make sure her world never exists consumes Rachel's thoughts, as does the dream that all mankind live together in harmony, Rachel still has other sides to her personality that show when she's calm, relaxed, and enjoying the moment. Most of the time Rachel lives for the future, a better future, but in those moments when laughter, family, and friends intervene, she can 'let her hair down', and live life to its fullest.

Rachel still has issues when it comes to her 'parents', Scott and Jean. She knows they are not 'her' parents, and yet, here they are, alive, well, and living, how can you not feel a sense of disquiet, a sense of unease. Rachel desires more than anything else to be accepted by them, and yet she does tend to still act like a child around them. She seeks their approval, even if they only see her as another X-Man, a team-mate, and not a 'time lost child'.
