Due to her connection to the Source, Mother Blood understands the Multiverse like few others. She can also control the actions of those who harbor a connection to the Red.

Sonya Tarinka was a woman without a home and who's only constants were hunger and loneliness. This changed when she was approached by a charismatic man who would introduce himself as Brother Blood. Leading off with food and shelter, Brother Blood would later introduce his beliefs to her and his ties to The Red (a force which connects and pervades all animal life and micro-organisms in the universe). Claiming to be more than man, he explained that everything with blood is connected by the Red, that humans will not only be united under primal laws again, but that something much bigger was coming to reset us all. Liking the idea of unity, she stayed despite his unorthodox religious flaws (risqué parties with cult members and ceremonial cutting) and became a loyal pupil.
Doing her own research, she began to realise the beliefs she thought were plausible theories were becoming more and more undeniable fact. Her research into the Red was fruitful and made her look into an unnatural stellar energy. She followed the trail, so well that she was bombarded by it upon predicting its location, this energy was Source energy. Starting to develop powers, she ran to her friends to share the news but came to find Brother Blood and all but 6 occultists were taken down by Superheroes. Not to be deterred, she manipulated their very bodies to make them super-soldiers in order to pick up where Brother Blood left off.
