Daina was assigned to Czech special forces where she led a team of soldiers that assisted both the Joes and Destro in rescuing Flint and the Baroness. They had been kidnapped by the Russian mob and were being held in the Czech Republic. During that mission, Lt. Gorky betrayed Daina and the others after being pulled into the corruption of his previous Russian unit, and was killed. Shaken by his death and tired of the difficult times her country was going through, Daina decided to move to the United States where she hoped to join the G.I. Joe team. She made it onto the team, where she soon took part in the battle against the forces of a revived Serpentor on Cobra Island. Shortly after, Daina adopted the code name "Vorona," (Czech for "crow") and is proud to be a part of the team she once considered the enemy. Her teammates have been more than happy to school her in American culture.
On her first mission as Vorona, she took part in a fight off the coast of Cobra Island that served as a distraction to allow Barrel Roll to infiltrate Cobra's headquarters. She then began working with Claymore in the Joe team's overseas operations. After the Joes stopped a plot by Cobra to unleash the weapon known as the Tempest, and defeated a new threat, the Red Shadows, the military again disbanded the team.
One year later, the Joe team was reformed with a smaller roster of active members. Vorona, like most former Joes, is a reserve member of the new team.
