Candice was one of those accompanying Captain Underwood on the epic cross-country journey from their original home in Canada, where conflict between mutants and a faction of mutant-hating pure-strains forced them to flee. This team conquered the Mount Pleasant skyship and over a period of 11 years brought it back to operational status. The skyship ark carried 1000 ‘New Utah Federation’ people on the Exodus to Heavens Gate. Candice was among the survivors from the destruction of the skyship.
