Eris was born “Erika Costa” to Carl and Adrienne Costa. She was born in Chicago and raised primarily by her mother. Her father was a member of the Italian Mafia and was arrested when she was only five. Erika’s mother took to drinking and the girl was neglected through her early years. The members of her father’s Mafia began stopping by frequently to make sure that the girl was well cared for. They made sure that she had plenty of food and was well clothed and in good health.

Erika spent much of her time at her Uncle Bernie’s restaurant. This was where most of her father’s old gang tended to spend much of her time. She liked to be around the men and they tolerated her for the most part. She spent her school years hanging around with the wrong crowd, trying to avoid her home as much as possible in an attempt to distance herself from her drunken mother. It was not uncommon for the girl to get in trouble for starting fights.

When she was 15, Erika began to feel a slight change in the world around her. She was suddenly aware of things around her in a way that she was never aware before. It was almost as though she could sense the presence of certain compounds and minerals around her. After a while she found that not only could she sense these minerals, but that she could pull them toward herself. After several months of experimenting alone she found that she could cause crystals to spontaneously erupt from the ground.

When she was 18, Erika showed her ability to a few of the men in the Mafia. Their demeanor toward the girl shifted almost instantly. They demanded of her that she create gemstones for them to sell, but none of the crystals she created would last longer than a few weeks. They continued to push her to no avail and kept her under constant surveillance.

Erika spent the next few years honing her abilities in an attempt to appease the men. She found that she could distinguish different types of minerals in the ground and eventually found ways of combining them to form crystals of differing color and hardness. After a bit more training Erika was able to shape the crystals into crude shapes, learning to form blades and spikes with some effort. She found that due to the growth patterns of the crystals, she could easily grow flat crystals in the shape of snowflakes or stars.

Erika was never able to produce a durable gemstone, but Don Rizzo saw other uses for the girl. He had her sent to Japan when she was 20 to study advanced combat training. Here she was trained in Kenjutsu, Ninjutsu, and Karate. Erika returned to the United States at the age of 28 and worked as a bodyguard and assassin for the upper tiers of the Chicago Mafia. She was given the codename “Eris” by the mob and liked it so much she abandoned her old name. She began referring to herself as “Eris Dysnomia” after the Greek deity of discord.

Over the next few years Eris had more specialized training. She was taught how to use a firearm, how to handle a car and motorcycle in chase situations, and how to fly a civilian helicopter. The Don began hiring Eris out as a mercenary to anyone who could afford her. She stole, kidnapped, and assassinated almost without question.

Eris was 33 she was hired to assassinate a man who turned out to be a mutant like herself. Eris had only heard vague mentionings of other super-powered individuals from snippets on the news. When confronted with another mutant she found that she had no desire to destroy him. She informed Don Rizzo that she would not harm the other mutant and warned him to leave her people alone.

The Don was furious with Eris for disobeying him and he sent his men to kill the mutant despite Eris’s warning. When she learned of this, the woman decided it was time for her to leave the Mafia. She could not bring herself to harm the men she had worked with for so long, but she needed to leave the city. Having heard of an entire community of mutants within New York City, she moved out to Manhattan to see what she could find.

Since moving to the city she has made a name for herself. The news refers to her as the "Envy, the Mutant Terrorist". She tends to keep to herself, but word in the underground is that the woman has a base of operations somewhere near the southern docks. A successful sting led by SHIELD agents has recently landed the mutant in a mutant prison. Her exact whereabouts are not public knowledge but authorities promise that she is no longer a threat to society.

She believes that it should not be humans who must learn to tolerate mutants, but mutants who must learn to tolerate the weaker species. She believes that Mutants should have the right to do as they wish, and that humans who intentionally harm mutants should not be allowed to live.
