Zefra was created by the High Evolutionary to serve as a member of his Godpack ground. Born of the Bio-Pool the High Evolutionary had constructed, she would be a normal human, formerly a criminal who would be imbued with godly abilities and physical traits. After High Evolutionary had crashed to Earth he would have unintentionally caused a vehicle accident, a prison bus carrying convicts crashing injuring many inside. High Evolutionary would save them putting them into stasis chambers to use for his genetic endeavors. Zefra would be one such product. Zefra's unique godly ability would be incredible swiftness and super speed. Zefra would be one of the last Godlings created alongside Anak and Riger both created in a Bio-Pool in Wundagore. She would serve alongside Blitziana inspired by Thor, Luminor inspired by Balder, Loga inspired by Loki, Bellam inspired by Tyr, each member of the Godpack inspired in part by a mythological deity or figure of the past.
They were not the only creations of the High Evolutionary, so were his New-Men Simbus, Tantaro, Urson-Wellz, who grew jealous of the Godlings and the High Evolutionary's seeming favoritism towards, and so would regularly clash with them. The High Evolutionary would notice the natural resentment his two sets of creations would hold towards each other and secretly manipulate both to continue opposing each other encouraging them to attack more to sate his own curiosity as to which group was superior. Eventually Zefra and the Godpack would get to meet and bond with the Thunder god Thor and become allies of the Asgardian as he would ally and aid them as well.
