Fire Knives' real name is Mariann Howlett, but she is the daughter of Wolverine and a unnamed woman. Not much is known about their relationship apart that they had a child. Fire Knives was recruited by a powerful organization called the Red Right Hand that has a personal vendetta against Wolverine. She took the name of Fire Knives due to her weapon of choice, special knives that emit heat and appear to be on fire, but it is unclear if this related to a mutant power or not. She then joined the team lead by Gunhawk dubbed the “Mongrels”. The team was created to eliminate Wolverine's friends, family and ex-girlfriends.

Fire Knives worked with Shadow S., Gunhawk, Saw Fist and Cannon Foot who tracked down Wolverine's current girlfriend, Melita Garner. They found her working in the San Francisco Post building.

The team headed into the building taking out the security on the way. When they found and attacked Melita they were shocked to find her with a Skrull sonic disruptor, which she fires at the team. Melita gets away from the team with the mutant shape shifter Mystique’s help. Gunhawk returns to report to the The Red Right Hand of their failure, and they decide to proceed to their next target in the nation of Madripoor.

Fire Knives and the team arrive in Madripoor and travel through the city to find the Princess Bar. They enter and massacre the bouncers and staff, but Tyger Tiger intervenes when Gunhawk tries to open a certain door. Gunhawk tells Tyger that “Logan is in hell” and burns down the room filled with mementos and possessions which Wolverine has accumulated over his long lifetime. Tyger asks why they are doing this but all Gunhawk says is Wolverine has made his and the rest of the team's lives a living hell.

Fire Knives and the team find and attack Wolverine. He bested them all in combat and kills them all individually. It was only after the battle that Wolverine finds out that Fire Knives and the rest of the Mongrels were his children, which devastates him. Wolverine then drags the bodies of his slain children to the graves of their mothers and buries them together.
