As a baby, Mona's original name was Linda, and she was brought to the jungles of Brazil alongside her parents, who were wildlife researchers. Unknown to her parents however, they had set up camp in a sacred part of the rainforest, owned by the fabled Amazon warriors. They were killed for trespassing by Valente Nakala, a huntswoman of the Amazons. However, before she left the scene, she heard the baby's cries, and upon discovering her, decided to take her back to the Amazon village with her, having enough conscience to not leave a defenseless baby by itself. Years went by, and Valente raised Linda, who was now being called Mona, as her own daughter and trained her in the Amazonian's way of fighting, which she excelled at despite being much notably shorter than the other Amazons. After the ceremony to celebrate Mona's adulthood, Valente finally decided to tell her the truth of her origins. Distraught over hearing this, Mona fought against Valente and managed to kill her, which was soon followed by her being banished from the Amazon's village. Now with no one left to turn to and no people of her own, Mona stayed in the forest, being perfectly capable of fighting for her own survival, and warding off any who dare threaten her homeland.
In battle, Mona is fearless and not afraid to take on any challenge. But she isn't without mercy. She will not kill her opponents unless they had previously wronged her. She can be ill tempered, but also willing to stand for what she believes in.
