Story: Lauren was living with her sister and father in Chicago, Illinois, when one day a fire broke out in the apartment. The fire started when her father's lit cigar ignited some newspapers while he was asleep, and Lauren tried to stop the fire and save her father. Instead the fire got out of control and the building stared caving in, trapping both her father and sister. Instead of trying to escape, Lauren stayed and tried to save Tara, and she got caught in the burning building too. Instead of dying, a strange energy formed around Lauren and protected her from the fire [WildStorm #4].

StormWatch heard about the miraculous save, and sent Christine Trelane to see if she was a seedling. Being a seedling, Lauren was then activated by Trelane, and joined StormWatch [WildStorm #4].

With the changes in the nature of the universe from Captain Atom's visit [Captain Atom: Armageddon #8], the new Doctor was able to extract Winter who had been trapped in the Sun [Authority: Scorched Earth], and to everyone's surprise Fuji, Hellstrike and Fahrenheit also appeared. Fahrenheit was almost dead from the hole in her chest from the alien, but the quick action of the Doctor healed her i time to save her life [StormWatch PHD #5].

Skills & abilities: Fahrenheit can agitate molecules in the same way as a microwave oven, thus heating materials. Besides the obvious use in heating materials, and in the case of combustible materials create fire, Lauren can also heat the air to create sufficient updraft for flight.
