Tarot had the ability to transform two-dimensional images into three-dimensional, tangible objects under her control. She had learned to manifest certain characteristics of the tarot cards on herself, such as weapons and armour, increasing her effectiveness in combat.
She also possessed a fair degree of precognitive ability, though it seemed that it was apparently dependent on the use of tarot cards.

Tarot was a member of the original Hellions, of French origin. Unlike some of the more mean-spirited Hellions (namely Empath, Jetstream and Roulette (Jennifer Stavros)), Tarot was generally a sweet and sympathetic character. In her earlier appearances, it was revealed by Mirage's psychic abilities that Tarot was in fact in love with one of the New Mutants, probably Cypher or Sunspot.
She was ostensibly killed by Sentinels under the command of Trevor Fitzroy, but this was merely a comic book death. She reappeared later as a member of the second Hellions team. It appears her resurrection and life force is somehow bound to King Bedlam, though this was never fully explained. She recently turned up in New Avengers #18, depowered from the House of M.
