The Blonde Zealot was a sorcerer and a former member of the Masters of the Mystic Arts who joined the Zealots with the intention of defeating the Ancient One and bringing the inter-dimensional being known as Dormammu to Earth.
Disillusion with the Ancient One
The Blonde Zealot was among the Masters of the Mystic Arts of Kamar-Taj enlisted by Kaecilius to be part of the Zealots and rebel against the sorcerers aiming to find their own meaning within the Mystic Arts that the Ancient One was hiding from them.
Upon joining the Zealots, the Blonde Zealot, among others, broke into Kamar-Taj and entered the library. The Zealots restrained the librarian, who was decapitated by Kaecilius. With access to the entire library, they retrieved a dark and forbidden tome known called the Book of Cagliostro, and tore out a page. Inscribed on it, was the details as to how to summon Dormammu and draw from his power. As they were leaving, the Ancient One approached them, demanding them to stop. The Zealots, fled, as the Ancient One chased them down through different cities and dimensions around the world.
Empowering the Zealots
Having stolen the Dormammu-summoning rituals from the Book of Cagliostro, the Blonde Zealot, Kaecilius and the other Zealots all began to summon Dormammu for the first time. All four Zealots, positioned equidistantly around the page, made their first contact with Dormammu. Evidence of this contact could be seen upon the Blonde Zealot's forehead, as this was the first time the Dormammu symbol appeared upon their faces, as well as the areas around their eyes darkened, acting as somewhat conduits to the Dark Dimension.
The Blonde Zealot infiltrated the New York Sanctum with Kaecilius and Lucian Aster. After they murdered the Sanctum guardian Daniel Drumm, the Blonde Zealot attacked Doctor Strange with her allies. They chased him and cornered him in a corridor, where Strange tried to withstand their assaults. After he pushed back the Blonde Zealot, Kaecilius altered the disposition of the corridor to make Strange fall. However, Strange took advantage of it to kick the Blonde Zealot through a portal leading to the desert. The Blonde Zealot ran at the gateway to come back, but Strange closed it before she made it, stranding her in the desert.
The Blonde Zealot eventually made it back from the desert and accompanied Kaecilius and the Brunette Zealot for an assault on the Hong Kong Sanctum. Together, they defeated Wong, enabling Dormammu to begin his invasion of Earth. However, Doctor Strange used the powers of the Eye of Agamotto to revert time. The Blonde Zealot fought against Karl Mordo before getting stuck in a building being rebuilt. However, she escaped and joined his allies as time was still, preparing for a final assault. However, Strange left for the Dark Dimension and struck a deal with Dormammu, who took the Zealots to the Dark Dimension, turning them into a Mindless Ones and granting them the eternal life they had desired all along, inhabiting Dormammu's realm and living in utter horrific torment forever.
Hardly any different from Kaecilius, the Blonde Zealot was a callous, remorseless, idealistic, merciless and cruel rogue, having betrayed the Ancient One and turned her back on the Masters of the Mystic Arts. She proved herself to be just as pitiless as her master and was very determined and ferocious.
