The newest member of the Forgiven, Inka still gives into her vampiric tendencies from time-to-time, preferring to feast on people rather than save them.[1] She accompanied the team when they came to Romania, to help Dracula against the Nul-possessed Hulk. Briefly imprisoned, the Forgiven escaped[2] and attempted to save the residents of nearby Pasnic while her teammates faced, and were defeated by, Hulk.[1] Later approached by Forgiven leader Raizo Kodo, the two seemingly fled, while in actuality constructing a strategy to stop the Hulk. Returning to the battle, Raizo and Inka (posing as Red She-Hulk convinced Hulk to stop fighting, resulting in him putting down the Hammer of Nul and exorcising him of the Nul possession. When Inka's deception was revealed, the Hulk angrily left, and the Forgiven were left plotting to steal the hammer from Dracula.[3]

After acquiring the hammer, the Forgiven wound up in a cabin in Transylvania hunting Nosferatu who were terrorizing the area. When Valkyrie arrived at the cabin seeking the hammer, she battled Raizo as the rest of the Forgiven looked on, and was eventually given the hammer.[4]

When former mutant-turned-vampire Jubilee was taken in by Raizo, in an attempt to help her overcome her dependency on human blood[5], Inka felt the job was pointless. Expressing those thoughts, she was tasked with personally trying to get Jubilee to drink sheep's blood. Threatening Jubilee, she quickly returned to the Forgiven's meeting room covered in the animal blood.[5] Inka later sat out the battle between the arriving X-Men and Forgiven, but confirmed the story of the Zapata Brothers, arriving assassins, who were merely the first of several to arrive seeking to kill Raizo.[6]


Vampirism: Inka, like all other vampires, is capable of transforming an individual into a vampire by biting them.
