Origin

N'Kalla was a Skrull child baptized in the blood of Skrull warriors soon after her birth by Empress S'byll.[1] She was taught since her birth to hate the Kree and her cells were ingrained by all the history of the wars waged by her kind. The same was done for her rival, the Kree child, Jo-Venn, with whom she was made to fight in any type of battle the spectators voted for.[6] The Kree colonel Kal-Torr and Skrull general J'Bahzz decided they should be raised together and taught to fight one another, the Profiteer brokered a deal to provide a neutral ground for that to happen. At her Casino Cosmico, they were made to fight in whatever battles imitating the Kree-Skrull war the crowd voted for. Though technically they weren't her property, she abused them for profit whenever she wanted.[2]

During one of her duels with Jo-Venn, she transformed into an Angovian Fang-Bear and bit his arm, but he managed to win by cutting her throat with a helmet. The Profiteer made them both fight again after having them patched up quickly, despite her employee Werman suggesting giving them a rest. When the Fantastic Four showed up for an open bout, so Ben Grimm could compete in it, they saw the two fighting, but were unable to know that they're children.

Freedom

As the view of the battleground became more clear, Grimm immediately jumped into the ring to stop the battle after learning the two were children, with Johnny Storm following him. The Profiteer made the children fight them too, but Reed Richards reprogrammed the battle arena to the ruins of the Blue Area of the Moon where both Bel-Dann and Raksor had united to fight the Fantastic Four. Ben and Johnny pretend to lose, before the Profiteer told them to go back to their quarters. She however soon found that her casino had been cleaned out by Valeria and Franklin Richards, forcing her to exchange it for amongst other things, the freedom of Jo-Venn and N'Kalla, whom the Fantastic Four took with them.[6]

When the Fantastic Four encountered the Alliance ships consisting of both Kree and Skrull technology, both Jo-Venn and N'Kalla assumed their respective race had finally won the war and started fighting. Reed sent them along with Val and Franklin to Earth for their own safety, but they instead started fighting again, after N'Kalla stated that she would make him his slave, damaging the ship Franklin was flying and forcing him to crash-land it in Yancy Street. Sky, Alicia Grimm, Wolverine and Spider-Man arrived after getting requested to help contain them, but N'Kalla calmed down after Franklin warned he'd hypnotize her and make her turn into a cow. When she heard Alicia's name, she ran towards her in joy, but was stabbed by Logan who didn't know who she was.[1]

Jo-Venn tried to get the honor of killing her, but was stopped by Wolverine. Valeria and Franklin took her to the medical bay of the Fantastic Four headquarters where she could heal. There, she told Alicia that she was someone she could always tell her secrets to. Upon learning that someone was attacking the adult heroes outside, Valeria and Franklin left to fight while planting their holograms, so the attackers didn't think the building was undefended. The Priests of Pama's Dark Harvest after probing Jo-Venn decided to abduct her as well, but were forced to flee after the Richards' children attacked them in the disguise of Hulk and the Ghost Rider Daniel Ketch. N'Kalla stabilized but the Death Harvest succeeded in kidnapping Jo-Venn, after which Reed Richards designated the four Earth heroes as the Fantastic Four replacements on the planet, so they could look for him and stop the Dark Harvest.[7]

N'Kalla escaped from the Fantastic Four headquarters after fooling Alicia into thinking she was Sky and tracked J-Venn down, due to them sharing a bond and her whole life had revolved around him. She was however defeated by the Dark Harvest due to her still being wounded from Wolverine's attack, and Master Forest broadcasted her as well as Jo-Venn's memories using the Omni-Wave Projector to make thee Alliance soldiers fight each other. Wolverine however tracked her down using her blood. As he and Spider-Man fought the Dark Harvest, Valeria and Franklin told them to focus on how they were forced to fight each other in past, but were the only ones who shared the experience, and gained their freedom by fighting together, which they should do so again. This caused the Alliance soldiers to snap out and fight the Cotati with a greater show of unity. The Dark Harvest was punished by their Celestial Messiah Quoi by being turned into trees, while Jo-Venn and N'Kalla were freed by the Fantastic Four.[3]

Adoption

Spider-Man and Wolverine later took the children to Disneyland and after the defeat of the Cotati, to the Blue Area of the Moon. There, they met their emperor Dorrek VIII/Teddy Altman for the first time and were excited to see the ruins of the Kree Blue City. The Profiteer soon arrived there on Reed's request and agreed to take a look at the weapons of the Cotati, which were far advanced beyond those of the Alliance. She failed to discover who made them, but realized their power sources were more ancient than her own race. In return, she demanded the power sources and the children being handed back to her. As the Avengers and Fantastic Four resisted her demands, she revealed the contract regarding the children and that she was the arms supplier of both Kree and Skrull empires. She threatened that she would have the Kree and Skrull forces mow them down, Teddy reminded her the two empires didn't exist anymore and tore up her contract, stating they'd deal with someone else. He then handed over the custody of Jo-Venn and N'Kalla to Ben Grimm and his wife Alicia.[2]
