History: Turned into a homeless and family-less refugee by Horde raids, Akiya Bandaranaike volunteered to become a Morituri after discovering she was genetically compatible to undergo the process. Her first mission saw her and other new Morituri sent to capture the rest of the Strikeforce, who had disobeyed orders to undertake a mission of their own choosing. One of their number, Wildcard, died violently as they fought their senior counterparts, when the fatal side effect of the Morituri process triggered; this brought home to the rest of the squad what they would all eventually face. Silencer subsequently had a brief relationship with Hardcase, but soon afterwards both of them were lured into an ambush; the Horde used a microwave beam from an orbiting satellite to incinerate them.
