Muirej would readily punch you as soon as she looked at you. She's much more trusting of swift fists than words and trust.
Muirej was born on a floating ice-chunk in the Ross Sea, near the ice shelf. She had two older siblings, both of which had already gone to live their life of solitude in Antarctica. Muirej grew up with many half-siblings, and constantly had company among her father's multiple mates. She never developed a relationship with her father, who kept himself distant and took no part in caring for her - or her half-siblings.
Muirej learned from her mother that she was a retromorph; she had the ability to shapeshift into a human. Only one other of her half siblings shared her mutation. Muirej's mother told her everything about retromorphs, and what to expect, and how to react, and how to properly shapeshift. The young pup soaked in all of this fascinating information like a sponge. "You cannot yet shapeshift; the ability has not been unlocked," her mother explained. "And be sure to shapeshift in a warmer place; otherwise, you'll freeze to death."
So the Leopard Seal pup heeded her mother's wise advice, and before long, it was time for her to leave the group and go live her life of solitude. So Muiraj, guided by instinct, left the group of seals.
She quickly became a skilled predator, and developed a thirst for exploration and gained an insatiable curiosity. She investigated every crevice, every tunnel, every ancient cave of Antarctica's borders. She sometimes meandered on land and gazed up at the nighttime stars, which ceaselessly fascinated her.
Life was, in short, quite perfect. But, alas, humans found her.
Solid colonies were blooming on the Antarctic ice. The humans, all with the same lust for exploration as Muirej, had developed stable lives on Antarctica. About four-thousand people lived comfortably on the icy continent. Fishermen were some of the most common people, and it was a group of those fishermen that discovered Muirej.
The graceful Leopard Seal was swimming near one of the ice shelves of the Amundsen Sea. A trawling net was lowered, and before Muirej knew what was happening, she was entangled in it. Desperately, she thrashed and squirmed and twisted to try and free herself, but it only got worse. The wires of the net cut into her thick skin like knives, and she was stuck - beaten into submission.
What made things worse, in her panic, she underwent her first transformation.
The strings of the net, choking her and constricting her and searing into her and weakening her, made her transformation a terrible one. Some of her human shape couldn't form properly, and she very nearly lost her arm. It was agony, and she screamed in pain for it to stop. She grew deathly cold under the water. Slowly, the trawling net was pulled up.
What the humans found was an unconscious, disfigured, freezing-cold, naked teenager entangled in the net.
When Muirej next woke up, she was in the Keeper Lab being experimented on. They treated her, but left her scars and disfigurements for their sick enjoyment. They gave her the ability to survive in both cold and warm climates.
Once they were done with their horrible experiments, they gave her a pair of clothes that she requested, then callously chucked her in the Menagerie.
