History: Fatale's mother Donna was only 16 when the Brotherhood cult kidnapped her off the streets and offered her to what appeared to be a dragon-like demon; it raped her, leaving her pregnant. She was rescued from them by J.P. "Fitz" Fitzgerald, an old flame of her mothers, who revealed they had taken her as a way of punishing him. He hid Donna from them during her pregnancy, but she died moments after childbirth, naming her daughter Desirée. Knowing the Brotherhood was closing in, Fitz gave the child to his friend Duke for safekeeping; though Fitz was soon captured, Duke left Desirée in the care of a local couple who raised her. But even as an adult, she remained hunted by the Brotherhood, led by her half-sister, Ms. Ogun.
