Birth of The Cat

  • Greer lived an unremarkable life through her formative years, focusing well on her studies in school along with being active in sports and extracurricular activities such as the science club. Her parents, Gregson and Janet, supported her well in her endeavors and provided a stable home.
  • Greer fell in love with rookie policeman Bill Nelson during her second year at the University of Chicago. After marrying him, she dropped out of school at his urging. She ended up alone when he was shot and killed, none of the jobs she could find being of any appeal to her.
  • After crossing paths with her former physics professor, Dr. Joanne Tumolo, Greer was hired as a lab assistant and went back to college to work toward her Bachelor of Science degree (not yet completed). She soon learned Dr. Tumolo had a secret project intended to help women reach their highest potential. The hope was for Greer to be the first one to try the process.
  • Greer was not the first, as Malcolm Donalbain, a wealthy man with a chain of health clubs who helped fund the research when Dr. Tumolo was short on money, threw his weight around and had his own choice of the first subject, Shirlee Bryant. In private, Greer convinced Dr. Tumolo to try the testing on her as well. This led to enhanced mental and physical abilities in her.

Birth of Tigra

  • This paid off when Donalbain's true motives were revealed. He wanted a cadre of women under his control to eventually take over the country through the use of their enhanced abilities and the costumes. Shirlee fell under his spell when she donned a collar that removed her will, but she died in a fall during the testing phase. Donalbain tried to cover things up by attempting to destroy Dr. Tumolo's lab and work, but Greer took an extra Cat costume and stopped Donalbain's plans.
  • Greer's life became more connected than ever to the feline visage after she used her talents and the costume to help fight a variety of villains in Chicago. After learning Dr. Tumolo was not dead but instead in recovery, Greer interrupted an attempt by Hydra to make off with the doctor. However, they put her life in serious jeopardy when she was hit with a blast of alpha radiation during the fight.
  • In order to save Greer's life, Dr. Tumolo began a ritual that forever tied Greer to the Cat People through the bonding of one of their souls to her. This was done with her permission, and Dr. Tumolo herself was actually a descendant of the Cat People. Greer, who had previously gone by simply "The Cat," now had no more need of the costume and its own enhancements, known from that point on as Tigra, changed further both physically and mentally.
  • Now visibly different, Tigra does possess an amulet obtained as part of the ritual. It can be used to create the illusion of her looking fully human again, but as far as she knows she is permanently altered as a combination of both human and feline, with a strong connection to the Cat People of Land Within, a pocket dimension. Whether or not this changes down the line remains to be seen, but her future is wholly unwritten.
