Karima Shapandar was an Indian National Police officer who has been infected with Omega Sentinel technology and has become a machine equipped with state-of-the-art technology aimed at exterminating mutants. Thanks to the efforts of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto, she overcame her lethal programming and was able to put use of her Sentinel devices to help mutantkind.
Eventually, Shapandar became a member of a controversial team of X-Men led by Rogue. Her association with the X-Men led her to have her systems corrupted and possessed by different antagonists, namely the Marauder Malice and the primal villain Arkea. Regardless, the Omega Sentinel was able to fight her molesters and side with the X-Men to combat them.
However, her infection still led her to turn against mutants. Supplanted by a complete machine version of herself who had experienced mutant dominance over machines, the Omega Sentinel was responsible for sparking the creation of Orchis, an anti-mutant powerful organization which influentially attacks mutants both directly and indirectly.
