A leading genetics researcher and the founder of the Mutant Research Center on Muir Island in Scotland, Moira was also Xavier’s “silent partner” in founding his school for young mutants. Moira’s research center has become a center for mutant studies, especially the study of powerful and potentially dangerous mutants (including Moira’s own son, Proteus, and Xavier’s son, Legion).
Moira has helped form a new X-Men team to carry on Xavier’s dream in Ireland. She was the guardian for the mutant known as Nor’Easter for a short period.
