Powers/Abilities: Since her Terrigenesis Minxi could duplicate for a short time the main traits and abilities of any animal she touched. The big disadvantage of her power was that during a change she also acted like that animal which resulted sometimes in bad memories for her when she came out of a change.
(Marvel Graphic Novel: The Inhumans (fb) - BTS) - At some point Minxi learned that Medusa was pregnant.
(Marvel Graphic Novel: The Inhumans) - Minxi wanted to see how Black Bolt would react when Medusa told him that she was pregnant, but Medusa heard a sound and when she saw that it was Minxi she gave her the night off if she had finished her work. Minxi wandered away.
After the Genetic Council had decided that Medusa's pregnancy had to be aborted, she fled from Attilan together with her maid Minxi. They were both teleported to a junkyard in America by Lockjaw. As a dog-like being Minxi killed a rabbit for Medusa, but was disgusted by her own actions and tossed the rabbit away when she came out of her change. She tried to help Medusa when her baby caused her much pain, but Medusa already felt well again. Medusa was sorry that Minxi had to kill for their meal, but Minxi was sure she would get used to the killing instinct she got when she became one of Earth's animals.
Soon after Minxi and Medusa had moved into a wooden hut they were found by Crystal, Gorgon and Karnak, who were brought to there by Lockjaw. When Crystal made everything in the area sterile with her powers, Minxi felt that it was wrong because it was against the way of things and so did Gorgon. To check if she was right Minxi touched a dove and flew around with it to feel how unnaturally clean the air was. Minxi decided to talk with Gorgon to stop what was making her feel so weird before it was too late (she seemingly got really close to Gorgon that night). The next morning an elemental creature attacked the Inhumans. Gorgon and Minxi ran hand in hand out of the hut and the creature was seemingly destroyed by them and the other Inhumans. After that Medusa came into labor and Minxi and the others helped her giving birth. Minxi took the role of a nurse and was the first to hold the little boy after it was born. During a conversation about the elemental creature with Karnak, Minxi brought up Gorgon, who acted jealous when he saw Minxi with Karnak. She told him that they must trust each other and then they hugged. That night Minxi watched the baby in its crib and saw the intelligence in its eyes. The elemental creature once again attacked, but this time Minxi and the other saw it destroyed for good by the baby. The next morning Black Bolt found them and Minxi and the others returned to Attilan with him. Back there Minxi wondered if her relationship with Gorgon would continue, or if he would just forgot her within the royal chambers.
(Fantastic Four Unlimited#2) - At Ahura's trial Minxi stood next to Gorgon, who was sorry for Black Bolt because Medusa didn't even want to stand near him after he delivered Ahura to the Genetics Council for the second time.
(Inhumanity#2) - After Attilan's fall Medusa's handmaidens Minxi, Eleja & Marista moved with their queen Medusa into Avengers Tower. Minxi told her that humans were in a panic due to mass Terrigenesis and that Captain America wanted to speak with Medusa.
Later Minxi reported to Medusa that a convoy with 24 Terrigen pods was attacked.
