History:

(X-Men Adventures II#6 (fb)) - As part of a ten-yearly ceremony, representatives of the Assassins Guild and the Thieves Guild each gave a boxed tithe to an External that emerged from the water. She bestowed upon Beau, the one chosen from the Assassins Guild this time, enhanced strength and protection from mortal men. Beau watched as his counterpart from the Thieves Guild failed to deliver his tithe and was obliterated by the External; she threatened further death for the forfeiting Guild next time. The External selected Bella Donna as the Assassins Guild's next representative and Gambit's brother, Bobby LeBeau, for the Thieves Guild.

(X-Men Adventures II#6) - Ten years later, the tithing ceremony was due again and Bella Donna had Bobby kidnapped and the Thieves Guild tithe box compromised to lure her estranged love, Gambit, to Louisiana. Soon after, Beau stood armed by Bella Donna's side as the External rose from the water again, but Jean Grey telepathically revealed Bella Donna's chicanery to the External and the chosen Assassin was denied enhanced power.

(The Adventures of the X-Men#8 (fb) - BTS) - Bella Donna schemed to get the Thieves Guild's immortality elixir vials and romanced Bobby LeBeau to find their location. However, she intended to have Beau kill him once the vials were acquired.

(The Adventures of the X-Men#8) - Gambit confronted his brother regarding marriage to Bella Donna as Beau stood by Bobby's side in the Assassins Guild stronghold, but then stormed out. Bobby followed his brother to acquiesce, only to be murdered by Beau's thrown knife from the shadows. Enraged, Gambit gave rapid chase through alleyways and challenged Beau. Although the assassin used his bladed staff, Gambit knocked him out, tied him up and left him suspended from a tree over swamp water in range of hungry alligators. Initially stubborn, Gambit flicked razor-edged cards into the rope, threatening Beau's fall, and the assassin quickly revealed Bella Donna's plan. Beau showed no remorse, stating it was just business, so Gambit left him tied in the weakened rope above the alligators.

Comments: Created by Ralph Macchio (writer), John Hebert (pencils) and Greg Adams (inks).

Odd to have the enemy of the LeBeau brothers named Beau.

The unnamed External who emerged from the water every 10 years is non-Caucasian and black haired. Her likely Earth-616 counterpart is the tithe-collecting Guild benefactor Candra.
