The eldest child of a wealthy ambassador, Monet St. Croix was a spoiled, pompous girl. When she rejected her brother Marius' invitation to use his skills as a dark sorcerer to rule world, he trapped her in the form of a red-skinned mute dubbed Penance. St. Croix younger twin sisters used their power to banish Marius to another dimension - were Penance followed in a hopes of being returned to normal. To spare their father the loss of his favored daughter the twins used their powers to merge with one another into a single being that duplicated Monet mentally and physically. It was while in this form that the twins along with other mutants were abducted by the alien techno-organic race known as the Phalanx.

Following the defeat of the Phalanx, Professor Charles Xavier, decided to see to it that the teenage mutant captives were instructed in the uses of their powers; establishing a new version of his School for Gifted Youngsters at the Massachusetts Academy. In the guise of Monet St. Croix the twins became members of the team known as Generation X.

Eventually the true Monet St. Croix and her brother, now assuming the name Emplate escaped their dimensional prison. Still trapped in the form of Penance, St. Croix was found by the Australian aboriginal mutant Gateway, who sent her to the Massachusetts Academy attended by her sisters - who were still assuming her form. After an altercation with Emplate, the twins would be revealed and Monet would be restored to her true form and powers as M.
