Powers and Abilities

Cutter can emit an energy field that increases the cutting power of any blade she holds by a hundredfold. When this is active, her sword emits a fierce blue-white aura.

She can easily cut through large items and has wounded people who are often assumed to be nigh-invulnerable.


Beyond the general history of the Wolf Gang, little is known about Cutter. She and her sister are both OGs of the Wolf Gang ; apparently Hunter allowed them to escape from their father circa 1992.

Nothing else is known about what was happening at the Shanklin home, why the sisters wanted to leave and what prevented them from doing so. It has been stated by secondary sources that her father was abusive.

Cutter remains a highly loyal Wolf Gang member.

See illustrations.


Cutter seems to be younger than Bomber, and to be fascinated by Hunter. She’s highly loyal toward him, to the point of siding with him against her sister. She seems willing to kill with her blade.


(Drawing her blade) “Dead end, honey.”

(Raising her sword) “You want wing or drumstick ?”
