Nereel is a member of the Fall People of the Savage Land. When the X-Men were visiting the Savage Land after escaping from Magneto's Antarctic lair, Colossus saved Nereel and a female friend of hers from a T-Rex that was attacking them. Nereel became especially fond of Colossus, and the two girls took the X-Man off for a romantic rendez-vous,[1] claiming that it was part of a Tribal custom to honor their friend that had not survived the dinosaur attack.[2]

Some time later, the X-Men (including Colossus) revisited the Savage Land when it and its people were apparently destroyed by the scavenger Terminus. However, Nereel and a number of other Savage Land natives had been saved by the other-dimensional ruler M'Rinn. Colossus was reunited with Nereel, who now had a son named Peter. Colossus is Peter's father, though Colossus was not told this. Longshot knew the truth about Peter's parentage and nearly revealed it to Colossus, but Nereel prevented him from doing so.[3]

When the Savage Land was rejuvenated, Nereel and the other survivors resettled there, and Nereel took up her late father's mantle as chief of the remaining Savage Landers.[3]
