Katya Belyakov was an Inhuman girl. Seeing a darkness in her, Jiaying refused to expose Katya to the Terrigen Mists, so her mother, Eva, stole Terrigen Crystals from the Inhumans and went on the run with her daughter.

Katya was given the ability to leech off people's emotions like a parasite, giving her a hypnotic control over her victims. Since she was so young when she underwent the change, Katya's powers drove her insane. She had a fondness for feeling the pain of people older than her, so her mother became one of her victims.

By 2008, Katya and her mother had made their way to Bahrain, where Eva attracted the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson attempted to get Eva to turn herself over to them, but Katya wouldn't release her and had Eva attack the agents. A group of thugs under her control grabbed Katya and entered a nearby building to hide from the people who would take her mother away.

However, S.H.I.E.L.D. believed they were holding the girl hostage, and sent in a team of heavily armed agents after them. These agents also fell under Katya's spell, so another agent, Melinda May went in to investigate. Agent May soon found the hypnotized agents, and killed Eva in the mistaken belief that she was the one behind their condition. Katya was furious that her mother had been taken away from her, and attempted to replace her by taking Agent May under her control. Cornered by numerous enthralled agents, Agent May was left with no other option but to pick up a gun and kill Katya.[1]

Powers and Abilities


Empathy: Katya has the power to sense, and in some manner, feed from the emotions of others. To do so she must first make physical contact with her victim in order to establish a link.[1]

Mind Control: Once Katya has touched a person she can then gain complete control over them. They will behave as she wants them to, even to the point of turning on their own friends.[1]
