Niko is an agent of Helspont, posing as a resistance fighter.

During Helspont's invasion of Earth, Niko maneuvered herself into a position of trust with Grifter. She "saved" him from a Daemonite attack, and brought him into contact with Deathblow, another hero who fought against the Daemonites. After continuing with the charade for some time, she delivered them to Helspont. Unbeknownst to her, Grifter was aware and had been using her to get to his enemy.
