Ororo is the daughter of Kenyan tribal princess N’Dare and African-American photographer David Munroe. While in Cairo, Egypt, a freak plane accident kills her parents and leaves her with crippling claustrophobia. In her wanderings, she falls under the wing of a thief and becomes an adept thief herself. Through this she first comes in contact with Charles Xavier. She is also worshipped as a rain goddess when her powers manifest themselves, before Charles recruits her out of necessity to save the original X-men. She is a member and some time leader of the ‘second’ X-men team, and is romantically linked to T’Challa (Black Panther).
