As a half-Homeworlder half-human hybrid, Intrepid began life as a "fleshy, pulsing runt in the loom's coils". A lithe, long-haired girl, she aged much faster than other Homeworlders and she had to renew unusually young because her body was fighting itself. Their next incarnation was a blond and blue-eyed boy.
Prior to taking the name "Intrepid", he consulted the loa and sifted through quantum strands to prepare for his first paradox, which would initiate him into the Faction. For the paradox, he stole some eggs from a splinter Coterie of posthumans and left them in a prehistoric swamp, causing the existence of Drashigs. (PROSE: Daring Initiation)
After joining the Faction, Intrepid had a relationship with Kifah. At the Shadow Spire, they and Gustav watched Life's angels proclaim the end of the War in Heaven. (PROSE: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing)
