The Old Planet received signals from Earth, depicting scenes of violence, turmoil and strife amongst its population. Curious and willing to explore this uncharted world, Hu'Szsersvn of Hive Creche volunteered to be the first cosmonaut in all of bee-kind. She saw it as a way to escape the typical cycle of overwork and eventual death from overwork that workers of her ilk were prone to. Hive Creche put its resources into a huge rubber band that was tethered between the uppermost reaches of Hive Creche and its neighbour, Hive Maljalani, as well as preparing a meteorite-like vessel capable of being fired across space. Hu'Szsersvn launched from the Old Planet in 1994, arriving in the same year.
Upon arrival at the outskirts of Millenium City, MI, Hu'Szsersvn's first contacts were various insects that could understand her speech. They all advised her to go mingle with the humans. In order to go unnoticed among them, she spotted a 12-year old boy, a young Uziel Areku, and she proceeded to kidnap, kill and disrobe him. With her outfit secured and the cause of death for Areku ruled an animal attack, she began intruding on an English as Second Language course and learned whatever she could. For over three years she had a working knowledge of English and a history of stealing lunches from the other attendees.
Hu'Szsersvn began working various odd jobs; construction detail, mail delivery in an office building, beekeeping and secretarial work, none of which panned out. She was frequently unemployed with other insects as company. She got into contact with an old and venerable cockroach by the name of Master Roach, and learned from him the art of stealth and ambush. Master Roach was last reported to have attempted to kill the President of the United States of America, Michael Wilson Sr., an attempt that did not succeed, and which the old roach gave his life for. Using her knowledge of subterfuge, Hu'Szsersvn began squatting in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Max Faol completely undetected for two months. Since the couple were gainfully employed, this left the house amenable to Hu'Szsersvn, its cable television and well-stocked refridgerator ripe for raiding. Signs of her passage were cited by Mrs. Faol as symptoms of a slovenly husband, and the ensuing arguments intensified to the point where the couple divorced, leaving Mrs. Faol with ownership of the home. Hu'Szsersvn had, in the meantime, intensified her knowledge of human customs and weapons from the various National Geographic channels she perused during her stay. Sensing that her continued presence would eventually be detected, she found another means of finding room and board.
She applied to the Millenium City Police Academy and became a sworn officer of the law in 1998. Hu'Szsersvn's acceptance hinged on cheating the psychological examination and the written test, as well as utilizing her natural capacity for flight to circumvent most of the agility test. The driving test was completed with the assistance of a phone book, and the Simulated Urban Combat course passed by sneaking into the testing area beforehand and memorizing the target locations. The top of her class, she was quickly pushed for consideration as a MARS training candidate in late 1999.
As part of a MARS unit, she assisted in many operations against gangsters and supervillains by providing close air-support for MARS troopers. As a distraction and as reserve cavalry, she afforded her team a flexibility unmatched by other counterterrorist units. She stayed with MARS for the next six years, until in 2005, she left MARS to pursue a career as a bounty-hunter and mercenary. As a member of the Economic Recruitment Group, she was deployed to fulfil scouting, reconnaisance and sabotage roles for various international interests. Able to afford furthering her education, she took courses in the handling of advanced grenade-based weapons.
During the Qularr Invasion of Detroit in mid-2009, Hu'Szsersvn was under the temporary employ of Police Chief Surhoff, providing assistance to the ground forces stranded within the Qularr's inhibitor field. While working as an auxiliary for the Champions, she impressed another supergroup, The Guardians, and performed therein as a recruitment and training adjutant. She and the other Guardians operated mostly within the North American theater before moving to peacekeeping operations on Monster Island and the undersea nation of Lemuria. Hu'Szsersvn's departure from The Guardians followed after a VIPER terrorist attack destroyed Guardians Tower, and she refused to take part of the reforming Ultimate Guardians due to personal disagreements with the surviving leadership of the group.
Hu'Szsersvn (aka "Hugs") is excitable, outspoken, curious and active. Constantly striving for information, she greets new information and sensations gladly. Her first response is usually to prod the stimulus with her finger, or to attempt to steal it for a closer look. Hailing from the perpetually crowded Hive-city of Creche, her respect for personal space and proximity is somewhat underdeveloped. She is currently in the stage of her development when most bees her age become expendable soldiers for their Hive, and has adapted the transition from worker to soldier by assuming more and more combative roles as time goes on. Her physiology necessitates the intake of glucose as a sole dietary requirement; her reliance on sugars and caffeinated drinks to maintain activity is very noticeable, as she stops regularly at Club Caprice for pick-me-ups. The one time she imbibed alcohol, she became visibly slowed, depressive and nihilistic, as though seeing clearly the nature of her existence. This may reveal underlying trauma that has impacted her worldview. Perhaps she buries it, and does so very thoroughly, under a veneer of bluster and love of ultraviolence. Her fondness for ruses and stratagems indicate a disinclination to fight fairly or on equal terms.
