Background/HistoryTaal " Talia Ivanova " was found by Mother on the shores of the Cold Sea as a child dressed in little more than rags and covered in ash and soot.
From where or when Taal came from Mother was never truly certain but being a woman of both great Intelligence and means Mother was able to piece together that the child was from a world at war that had already escalated well past the use of Nuclear Weapons and that the child itself had been genetically modified to not only survive that hellish environment but also thrive there as well.
The only real clue to the child's identity resting in 20 digit barcode tattooed on the back of the child's neck 82542- 4826682- 00000331 that when deciphered using a common Alpha-Numerical coding system could be translated into the name of Talia Ivanova.

No doubt intended to ease psychological conditioning needed to ensure the child's dependency upon a caretaker or handler. A trademark of both past and current super soldier programs of which Mother was already familiar.
Mother and the other members of her family quickly worked out ways to navigate around these impairments. Ensuring that Taal was able to function normally in the world and society she now called home.
At 25 Taal is well adapted to surviving the harsh landscape that is the Savage Lands and has explored the lands as far North as Machine City and as far East as Ice Wall. Taal has Traveled West as far as the Dead City but to date has gone no further due to Mothers advanced age and poor health.
