Paige Jenna Donner was born Chad Wilson, whose manifestation as a mutant coincided with crossing the Palm, a supervillain who transferred himself into a computer. Since the Palm was trying to kill him and his body had changed drastically, now intersexed and looking female, Chad took the identity of Merry, codenamed Circuit Breaker. Through a series of traumatizing events, Merry ended up in ARC as a patient, diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder. These personalities were the original boy Chad, a younger version named Chaddy, Merry, who was a female mixture of Chad and hypnotically implanted memories of a female telepath, and Mai, one of the Palm's AIs who got into their head and copied parts of all the others to adapt. Sara helped them get out of ARC, but they were intercepted by the Medawihla Were Tribe, who infected them with the werepanther virus in an effort to get Sara to help them against the Bastard. In doing so, they inadvertently created a clone of Merry. Sara moved Chad and Chaddy into the clone, who was then named Petra Donner, while Merry and Mai in the original body got the name Paige. They regard themselves as twins. The leaders of the Medawihla weres, Eloise and Ben Donner, adopted Petra, Paige, and Chad's sister Joni Wilson, now Jo Donner. The CEO of NEXT also claims that they are his nieces. Petra was sent to Rome to get training from the Knights of the Church, while Paige and Jo went to Whateley.
Paige moved into a specially built room in the basement of Hawthorne, and Jimmy T was designated to show her around. As one of Sara's marked girfriends, she is part of Sara's Pack. She is trying to keep her powers over computers secret, in order to hide from the CIA.
As an adopted member of the Medawihla Tribe, Paige and her sister Jo are members of the Nations, although she rarely attends meetings.
Paige is a werepanther kitten with four forms. One is an enormous panther kitten, one human with cat eyes, and the other two are in between (fuzz and middle form). In her fully human form she needs glasses, and wears a prosthetic arm to replace the one that was cut off, producing Petra. Her arm is slowly regrowing, but it will take time. In her other forms she is farsighted. She has black hair with blue streaks, and electric blue eyes. She is colorblind in all forms. She is classed as an energizer, as her body generally carries an electric charge high enough to shock anyone who touches her, but her main power is to move her mind into any computer and do whatever she likes once inside, which includes traveling through the internet to control any computer connected to it. She is fairly paranoid, reacts badly to anyone trying to order her around, and reacts explosively to anyone threatening someone she cares for. As a child she had training in fighting mutants, and as a werekitten she often goes into the blood rage, a state very like being a rager where she is violent and neither has control nor remembers her actions later.
