I want your pain.
—Katya Belyakov to Melinda May src

Katya Belyakov was an Inhuman who was subjected to Terrigenesis by her mother Eva without the proper mental preparation, developing sensory manipulation powers that drove her insane. She and her mother used their respective abilities to cause carnage in Bahrain, forcing S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Melinda May to cross them off.


Katya Belyakov received her Inhuman traits through her mother, Eva Belyakov, who submitted Katya to the Terrigen Crystals at a very young age to "receive her birthright". Jiaying had noticed several signs of psychopathic schizophrenia within Katya and thus deemed her unsuitable for Terrigenesis, but her mother trusted her own judgement over Jiaying's. The sudden powers, without proper mental preparation, drove young Katya to insanity. Through her gift, she was able to feel the emotions of other humans though a single touch, and also control them. At the Incident in Bahrain, Katya acted innocent in order to gain the upper hand. She easily put local mobsters and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents under her control, while Eva prepared to kill.

Becoming The Cavalry

Agent May cradling the deceased Katya

Katya watched as her mother fought Melinda May, a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent sent in after her team, and was defeated. Devastated and angry that May killed her mother, Katya tried to convince May to take her hand, so she could "feel her pain" and kill her. In order to protect all the agents, May was forced to shoot the girl. After Katya's death, May cradled the child in her arms, traumatized by what she had done.

The tragedy became a cautionary tale for the Inhumans of Afterlife, recounted by Jiaying to her own daughter Skye years later.


Some months later after the girls initial death, an unknown foe residing at TBA used his inhuman power of resurrection to bring the girl back to life. At the same time Sha'quan's daughter had brought them to SGA campus where they witnessed this event. Katya however sensed them there and have Sha'quan her Ukala Medal which was found upon returning to his home.


Katya Belyakov is an Inhuman who achieved her genetic potential after undergoing Terrigenesis, gaining superhuman powers.

With one touch, she leeched off emotions like a parasite.
