Razor-sharp and exceptionally tough skin
Has long, sharp tendrils for hands, feet and hair.
During her stay at the Academy, she rarely stayed around the others. Her animalistic nature kept her away from the others as well as her hesitance to be captured again. All that she had been through and had now become had turned her into a timid, skittish wreck. Jubilee was especially friendly to her, often taking apples to her. During her time at the Academy, she had her good times and bad. Penance suffered a form of seizure while at the pool with Jubilee but soon recovered. She did eventually begin to trust her new friends and even went on a mission with them in Generation X #8. In a subsequent mission, presumably to cover up their relation, Uber-Villain Emplate referred to her as "Yvette," but her teammates believed it and grew wary of her.
After the twins told the team the truth about Monet and Penance, they felt horrible about impersonating their sister for so long. In order to "make things right", they decided to do something about it - they merged together again into their Monet form and then grabbed Penance's hand. Two forms appeared. One was the form of Penance, while the other was a shocked Monet St. Croix. The twins merged inside the Penance form which allowed for the real Monet to be released, while the twins became the ones trapped inside the Penance form.
Generation X continued to refer to the form, with the twins, as "Penance", while Monet later started a fight with Jubilee, feeling that she had treated her as an animal, or pet, while in the Penance form. The team continued their efforts to cure the new Penance, while Monet, feeling responsible for her sisters' condition, also tried to help privately.
Later, a mysterious explosion freed the twins from the Penance form, but the body itself remained. Whether someone else has become trapped within it or whether the body has a mind of its own now remains unrevealed. Finally, when the twins left for home, they took Penance, along with Artie Maddicks and Leech, with them. Penance has not been seen since.
