A Skrull princess, Veranke was a member of the Dard'van, a deeply religious sect of Skrull society whose existence centred around an approaching scenario that would see the end of the Skrull empire. After the Illuminati's failed attempt to intimidate the Skrull empire into leaving Earth alone, Veranke and her sect attempted to warn then-ruler Dorrek VII of the impending disaster. Considered insane, Dorrek forced her into exile on a deserted world.
She was brought out of exile, became the current Skrull Empress, and orchestrated the Secret Invasion posing as Spider-Woman.
