Little is known about Fatale's youth and how she came to be Dark Beast's most trusted servant. It is possible that Dark Beast created her himself.
Servant of Dark Beast
When Dark Beast became interested in the X-Man, Bishop, he placed Fatale undercover as a waitress in Harry's Hideaway, a bar the X-Men often visited. Fatale somehow scanned Bishop's mind to find his ideal woman and changed her appearance to match this image. She took the name Pamela Greenwood, but she failed to get any closer to Bishop. Bishop noticed something familiar about Pamela, but never pursued his interest in her.
Several months later, Havok was losing control of his powers. Dark Beast ordered Fatale to kidnap Havok so that he could brainwash him. Fatale was working against Scarlett McKenzie, a woman Havok had known and loved, but who had allegedly died years before. Intrigued by Scarlett's reappearance, Havok left his team X-Factor to investigate, but was captured by Fatale. X-Factor and their ally Yukio defeated Fatale and freed Havok. A second attempt by Dark Beast, using Random succeeded, and Fatale brought Havok to Dark Beast.
After his visit to the Age of Apocalypse, Bishop began having nightmares. He felt that Pamela Greenwood was somehow connected and went to her apartment to question her. Pamela revealed herself as Fatale and fought Bishop, but Dark Beast, monitoring the fight, called her off when Beast entered the fight. Seeing a new opportunity to infiltrate the X-Men, Dark Beast kidnapped Beast and took his place. When Onslaught attacked the X-Men, Dark Beast revealed himself and offered his services to Onslaught. Dark Beast, Random, Fatale and a brainwashed Havok formed the Dark Descendants and fought X-Factor, but were defeated. Havok and Random escaped, but Dark Beast and Fatale were sent to prison. Fatale was also present along multiples mercenary trying to kill the ninja assassin Elektra. 
Havok decided that Dark Beast's experiments might still be going on and he allied himself with the telepath/teleporter Ever, and formed his own Brotherhood. Havok freed Fatale and Dark Beast from prison, telling them that he chose Fatale over Ever and that he wanted both of them to join his Brotherhood. Both agreed, but Havok disbanded the group several weeks later when he discovered Dark Beast's hidden lab. Fatale sided with Dark Beast, but was defeated by Havok.
Coming to believe that the United States government was responsible for M-Day, she joined other former mutants in the terrorist X-Cell, using blades and guns along her fighting skills in replacement of her powers. After Blob attempted to steal food from Multiple Man and Rictor, resulting in a fight between Rictor and Blob, she was forced to step in and attack Multiple Man, cutting one of his dupes with a poison-tipped blade.
Fleeing with Blob in a stolen car, the two were stopped by a manhole cover left open by Strong Guy and Wolfsbane, and Fatale was thrown from the car. The two groups fight again before retreating.
She was later repowered by the Terrigen Mist, and participated to the brawl with X-Factor and a army of Madrox dupes. When the repowering effects were starting to wear off and their powers to become unstable (Elijah Cross had exploded seconds before), she was sucked into the Brimstone Dimension, along with Reaper, by Abyss, as he wanted to avoid them from exploding in street and as he wished that the Brimstone could stabilize or drain their powers.
Frozen and returned
The experience gave right to Abyss, as the time froze around them while they were in the dimension, preventing them from exploding.
When Serval Industries X-Factor came to the base to free the mutants (not knowing their identities) from A.I.M., Hoffman was about to vivisect her, but fled to find Abyss and Reaper, to drain their powers and power himself.
Polaris found and freed Fatale and, once the battle was over, she encouraged Reaper and repelled Lorna when her teammate was trying to achieve Hoffman while he was knocked out. As he was denied the opportunity by Quicksilver, this led to an attempt to fight with the speedster, not over Hoffman's life, but about Pietro's involvement in the former prisoners' current fate.
Fatale promised to Polaris and X-Factor that she, Abyss and Reaper would never forgive Quicksilver for having used the mists on them.
She came to the first press conference of X-Factor and publicly announced Quicksilver's crimes involving the Terrigen mists, the disastrous repoweration of some mutants (including the death of some) and him blaming it on Skrulls. As Polaris had security taking Fatale out, Pietro held them back, admitting his crimes in front of the media.
Her former powers included:
- Light-alteration: Fatale was able to bend light to cloak herself to invisibility, and use light-structure to alter her image.
- Teleportation: Fatale was also able to teleport herself and other people and objects.
After her Terrigenesis, along her former powers return, she acquired a new power:
- Healing factor: She was able to heal a broken arm in about minutes after her repoweration.
Fatale is a skilled martial artist and often uses a poisonous blade or advanced firearms. Yukio identified Fatale's fighting style as Ghost Tiger Style. Fatale is also a skilled forger.
Fatale wears an armored uniform.
Fatale's gauntlets have retractable poison-tipped blades, laser- and plasma-blasters, conventional guns.
