Bella Dawn Parker's grandparents worked at the Nevada Atomic Weaponry Test Site for Robert Oppenheimer; this is how they met. Their son, Robert Jonathan Parker, also met his wife (Emily Katonic) at work, this time at the Groom Lake Research Facility (Area 51). Nobody was shocked when Robert and Emily gave birth to a bouncing blue baby girl...there was a high percentage of mutant kids coming from the workers at Groom Lake, and Las Vegas is not a bad place to raise a mutie kid---nothing surprises anyone there.

Her Healing Aura first showed up when she was quite young, first when she hurt herself playing, then she quickly realized she could also heal her playmates without them having to go to their moms (and maybe confess they had been doing things they shouldn't have). This made her rather more popular than less, and by the time she was in high school, she was a regular assistant paramedic at sporting events. That (and the fact that she just had too many interests to want to settle into an 8-year academic grind) was what decided her to become a paramedic rather than go to college, although she is certainly intelligent enough to have gotten an MD.

Then the Rikti invaded, and one of the places they hit was Groom Lake. Volunteers were quickly recruited from among the untrained and retired heroes in and around Las Vegas to go in and take the base back, and with both her parents barricaded into a 50s era fallout shelter, Bella was one of the first to sign up.

The carnage was terrible, among heroes as well as non-heroes, both civilian and military. The stress triggered new powers for Bella, Neutrino Blast, Radiation Infection, and Accelerate Metabolism., all of which she used in the fight to take back the base . But she is still suffering from the trauma of that day, as are so many who fought off the Rikti

In light of this, she decided to abandon her original plans and come to Paragon City to the place where the stand against the Rikti was the strongest.

She partnered heroing with her studies in medicine, eventually obtaining her MD, and became an ER Surgeon in the hospital in King's Row.

Then came the collapse of the timelines due to the meddling of the Menders.

The next thing she knew, she was back in the ER in Atlas Park...and a frantic Freedom Corps rep greeted her as "Belladonna Aura" and slapped her with the care of the CCCP as its Commissar--even though she had never heard of the group before.

Perusing its records she discovered what had happened to her Primal timeline predecessor.

When at last more CCCP comrades began to return, she gratefully turned over the office of Commissar to Russian Battler, but decided to stay. After all, she reasoned, every GOOD doctor is at least a bit socialist.
