Weight: 190lbs(Mostly due to adamantium coating her skeleton)
Occupation: Student at the Xavier Institute
Place of Birth: Unknown alternate Weapon X lab facility
Marital Status: Single
Known Relatives: Her "mother" Dr. Sarah Kinney was killed by Laura when she went into a berserker rage. Logan is her genetic "father" do to his DNA.
Group Affliations: Xmen
Base of Operations: Xavier Institute
Weapons: Adamantium claws in her forearms and feet.
Enhanced Abilities: Enhanced strength, speed, agility, stamina, and reflexes, and hyper-keen senses.
Special Powers: X-23 has a healing factor that can heal virtually any wound or disease, and presumably also slows her aging. She has retractable claws that extrude from her forearms. Her bones and claws have been bonded with adamantium, rendering them unbreakable. Due to genetic tinkering and variation, X-23 has only two claws on each forearm, and a third claw in each foot.
Hobbies: Not a very social person at first due to her upbringing, she tends to be aloof from others though she does try to make friends tentatively. She can usually be found following groups around to things like the movies or the mall, though she rarely seems to actually involve herself in activities unless dragged into them by others.
History: X-23 is a clone of Weapon X... created in a test tube and planted into the womb of her co-creator - Sarah Kinney. Her sole purpose of existence is to be a weapon. The idea that she could be raised and brought up in a controlled environment, completely void of her own thoughts, emotions and ideals. The adamantium was bonded to her bones at an early age, after her mutation was induced through radiation. Owned by a private organization, she started out being sold out on contract to various bidders to do their dirty work, it didn't matter who or what... as long as the price was high.
When the child was born, Zander Rice(one of the directors of the project) tried to cut Kinney out of the loop, but she convinced Sutter to give her time with her "daughter" to better "control" her. Kinney read books on war and tactics to the subject, called only "X-23," but managed to sneak in some fairy tales as well. X-23 was trained in numerous martial arts and in the use of a plethora of weapons, though of course her integral weapons were more formidable. Her sensei also tried to treat her like a normal person, but was warned not to do so by Rice. At age seven, Rice induced her mutation with radiation, and the claws popped, whereupon X-23 was given the adamantium bone-coating treatment. The next day, she was driven into a berserker rage by a scent trigger and sliced up her sensei, part of Rice's plan to eliminate personal contacts with his assassin.
Her surrogate mother while still involved in the project had regrets and set in motion a plan to free X-23 from the facility, so they could start life anew as mother and daughter. She didn't want her to be part of a war. But freedom came at a price. Sarah had been dosed with a trigger scent... a scent that would induce a feral state in X-23, and she attaked the woman in her berserker state. When X-23 came-to from her rage she realized what she had done - murdered her only "family." Sarah's last words were to tell her that she was loved... and that her name was Laura. The secret of the trigger scent and her creation is still out there somewhere, waiting to catch up with her.
Her life from that point on has been lonely and ever changing, laying as low as possible, but fighting modestly from the shadows if it came to it. The last thing she wanted was to draw attention to herself.
She spent time as prostitute in New York City, a waitress, a vigilante and eventually an X-Men... somehow staying under the radar, and avoiding being brought back into a world where she was a weapon.
