History: (Savage Avengers I Annual#1 (fb)) - Esme, along with many other women, was trafficked from South America into America.
(Savage Avengers I Annual#1) - Upon arrival in the
United States, Esme and the other women were lined up and processed
into different vans, one sending them to work in a nail salon and the
other, a brothel. While in line waiting to be processed, Esme was given
an extra phone card by another woman, Mary, and Esme managed to thank
Mary before one of the traffickers angrily reminded them that there was
to be no talking. Noticing other women praying to the heavens for
salvation, Esme instead prayed to Hell and her prayers were sensed by
Daimon Hellstrom. Esme continued her prayers until Hellstrom showed up
to attack the slavers. While the other women ran for their lives, Esme
stayed in the van until Hellstrom killed the slavers (with the
assistance of Hyborian era barbarian Conan and super-spy Black Widow)
and once the slavers had all been either defeated or killed, Esme
emerged and Hellstrom recognized her as the one who prayed to him. Esme
then pointed out the sickle tattoos on the slavers and informed the
three heroes that they were more women held captive elsewhere. When the
heroes asked Esme to show them, Esme led the trio to the human
traffickers' camp, where Conan slaughtered nearly all of the
traffickers with the help of sniper Black Widow and Hellstrom from
afar. Following the defeat of the slavers, Conan welcomed the freed
Esme and other slaves to accompany him north, promising to protect them.
