Beatriz da Costa: 1987 - 2006 Edit
Before she was knwn as the Blistering Babe from Brazil, Bea da Costa lived in Rio de Janeiro as the daughter of Ramon da Costa, an executive for a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises. Beatriz never really knew her mother Dalila as she had died from a medical ailment when Beatriz was still a baby, but Dahlia’s family were very interested in remaining part of Beatriz's life. As Ramon was a busy man, he usually left Beatriz in the care of his in-laws who were a peculiar free-spirited sort that mostly lived in a family compound on the outskirts of Rio. Though they did spend much of their time socializing and working ouside the compound, they allowed their own blood inside the walls of the compound; for good reason, as it was here that they practiced a secret occult practice known only as the Ge. This practice involved the worship and ritualistic bonding to a being only known as the Sky Spirit.
When Beatriz was fifteen, she was allowed the chance to officially join this practice as well. As part of her joining ritual with the Sky Spirit, Beatriz took part in the lengthy ritual. When this ritual ran on past the time that Ramon was scheduled to pick Beatriz up for a father and daughter outing, Ramon entered into the compound to search for his daughter. He discovered what seemed like a cult ritual, Beatriz's family insisted Ramon must wait until the ritual was complete but Ramon assaulted Beatriz's uncle and took Beatrizout of the compound.
Just feet from compound's doors, Beatriz began to scream. Her eyes and hair turned green and she was surrounded by a brilliant green conflagration that incinerated her father instantly. It was then that Beatriz came to her senses and realized what had happened. Scared and frightened, Beatriz ignored her family's insistence to return to the compound to finish the ritual and she instead chose to run away. But she did not get far as she was almost immediately tackled by police who assumed her to be a metahuman. Alone for the first time in her life, Beatriz spent the next four years in a juvenile detention facility where she secretly practiced the magical fire inside her. after her release, she found her family compound abandoned.
