Real Name: Kaitlyn O'Hare
(Earth-93060/Ultraverse) human mutate
Occupation: Assassin for hire
Group Membership: None
Enemies: Bob Campbell (Ranger), Thelma
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Mobile in the USA
First Appearance: Prototype#2 (September, 1993)
Powers/Abilities: Sadistic and murderous,
Backstabber has had metal implants that make her immune to otherwise
bone-breaking hits or falls, although this increased her weight too.
She also has extendable sharpened metal claws from her unpainted
fingernails on her right hand (see comments). She has athletic agility
and very good fighting skills.
(Skybox Ultraverse trading card #47) - Kaitlyn O'Hare
became an assassin for hire on a cash-only basis. She relished the hunt
more than the kill, and selected mostly male targets whom she would
seduce before brutally murdering.
(Prototype#2 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, O'Hare had
metal implanted into her body that reinforced her bone structure and
gave her extendable claws from the fingernails on her right hand.
UltraTech boss Stanley
Leland was concerned about the bad publicity generated by ex-employee
Bob Campbell, so his assistant Marjorie Fredericks (later Veil) hired
(Prototype#2) - Backstabber waited for Campbell at a
bar and approached him, posing as a talent agent. Sitting nearby,
Aladdin agent Jake Alexander vaguely recognized her, but left. Drinks
progressed and Campbell took her back to his place, where she came on
strong, then slashed him several times, separating him from his
prosthetic arm. His protective cat Thelma provided a distraction while
he escaped into his garage and quickly put on the basic parts of his
new armor. He rapidly slotted in a circular blade attachment and
shattered her fingernail blades.
(Prototype#3 (fb)) - Backstabber ran off howling into
the night, threatening to return.
Comments: Created by Len Strazewski & Tom Mason (writer), David Ammerman (pencils), and James Pascoe (inks).
It looks like it's only her right hand that's
augmented with extendable blades, but there are a couple of panels
where the art's not that clear.
It's possible that her enhancements were bought from NuWare (a subsidiary of UltraTech).
