Candra is an immortal mutant with a wide range of telekinetic abilities. Those powers seem to extend to limited forms of telepathy. She can cloak herself those around her from detection and even activate or disable superhuman powers in others.
Candra’s name first surfaced in association with an old peace agreement between the Thieves' Guild and Assassins' Guild of New Orleans. She provided both with power in exchange for monetary tributes. Gambit broke the uneasy alliance bringing the X-Man and his team-mates to her attention.
The immortal mutant with only one known name never banded with the other Externals preferring to play the power broker alone. She placed her soul into a ruby which was later stolen by a young Ororo Monroe. Candra later learned the truth and confronted the wind-rider. The battle that followed ended with the gem’s destruction, and with her soul released, Candra perished.
