Merriam was one of the individuals given paranormal abilities by the White Event and became a patient at the Clinic for Paranormal Research (and later, one of the group which absconded from it). She developed feelings for fellow patient David Landers, but he was obsessed with Stephanie Harrington and could not return her affections.

When the US government began drafting paranormals, Sorenson was instead inducted into the CIA along with Charlotte Beck (Friction), Lenore Fenzl (Twilight), Jenny Swensen (Chrome) and Harrington, but left after just two missions to rejoin the group of 'displaced paranormals' who were now her extended family. She had a brief relationship with Landers, but left him when Harrington returned and Merriam realized he still loved her. She elected to have her paranormality removed by William Wexler, the man known as The Cure.

She was presumably killed along with the rest of the planet when this reality was destroyed.


Merriam formerly had the paranormal ability to absorb moisture, making her body increase in weight. She could expel this moisture through her hands or mouth like a water cannon. She could also absorb the moisture from another's body, dehydrating them. Thanks to her power, Merriam was able to breathe underwater.


Merriam was trained in hand-to-hand combat by the CIA.
