Taken by the TVA
Hunter B-15 was a Variant who was taken by the Time Variance Authority, an organization that protects the Sacred Timeline from Variants, and had her memory suppressed so that she could be a member of the organization itself as a Hunter. Upon regaining her suppressed memories, B-15 recalled that she used to be happy in her early life on Earth.
After Loki from an alternate 2012 timeline stole the Tesseract and was transported to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, Hunter B-15 and her Minutemen were sent from the Time Variance Authority to apprehend him for disrupting the timeline. However, Loki threatened B-15 and the others and attempted to push through them, prompting B-15 to strike him in the face, using a tool to temporarily slow him down to one sixteenth of his original speed. B-15 placed a power-nullifying collar on Loki and confiscated the Tesseract, while the Minutemen arrested Loki and reset the timeline using a reset charge.
B-15 brought Loki through a Timedoor to the TVA headquarters. Loki immediately tried to escape, but B-15 used a Time Twister to bring him back to his original position, confusing him. B-15 gave the Tesseract to a TVA agent named Casey and brought Loki to another room where he was processed as a prisoner. Afterwards, B-15 brought Loki to stand before Judge Ravonna Renslayer, who was to try Loki for his crimes against the Sacred Timeline. B-15 stood by as Loki ridiculed the TVA, much to Renslayer and B-15's annoyance. Loki then attempted to use his Asgardian magic to escape, unaware of the fact his powers do not work in the TVA, confusing him yet more, amusing B-15.
Renslayer sentenced Loki to being "reset", and B-15 grabbed him along with another guard; however, Agent Mobius M. Mobius intervened, requesting time with Loki. Later, B-15 entered the interrogation room and informed Mobius that there was a situation. B-15 and Mobius left, leaving Loki unattended. Outside, B-15 argued with Mobius telling him that associating with Loki was a mistake, and reminded him of a variant that had been murdering their men. Mobius returned to Loki, but he soon came rushing back to tell B-15 that Loki had escaped, having stolen Mobius' Time Twister to teleport himself away.
B-15 ordered her men to reset Loki on sight, however Mobius instead ordered them to keep him alive as he could still be of use to the TVA. B-15 found Loki talking to Casey and holding the Tesseract. Before B-15 could prune him, Loki teleported away. B-15 returned to the interrogation room and found Loki laughing, while watching his main self's timeline. B-15 asked Loki what was so funny, but Loki struck her. B-15 caught his fist and pushed him down onto the desk.
However, Loki grabbed a Time Twister and deactivated his collar, strapping it to B-15 and teleporting her away. Loki then brought B-15 back into the room, then sending her back once more. Loki continued to do this, despite B-15 ordering that he stop, sending her backwards and forwards through space repeatedly until ultimately teleporting her out of the room. B-15 was transported to a hallway where Casey and two TVA judges were discussing Loki's escape, startling them when she suddenly appeared.
Working with Loki
Chase of the Variant
After Hunter C-20 and her team were ambushed by the Variant in 1985 Oshkosh, Wisconsin, B-15 gathered Mobius, Loki, and some Minutemen to scope it out. She told the group of what happened and told them that although they were certain it was a Loki, they did not know what kind they would be. When Loki tried to tell her that it would be a lesser kind, B-15 asked him to turn around and show off the large word "Variant" on his jacket. When Loki was annoyed by it, she told him she was only making sure everyone remembered what he was, a cosmic mistake. She was present for the rest of the debriefing.
She then entered 1985 Oshkosh, Wisconsin by way of a Timedoor to investigate the disappearance of the Minutemen. When it was discovered that the Variant Loki had taken Hunter C-20 hostage, she said that it's possible that he was upping his game, before saying that there was no way a Loki had gotten the jump on C-20. She ordered her Minutemen to quickly fan out and search for C-20 before a redline could occur. Loki then warned the Minutemen not to leave the tent, as they would be ambushed, causing everyone to stop. B-15 watched as Loki talked and stalled for time, reminding Loki and Mobius multiple times that they were running out of time to look for C-20. After Mobius saw through Loki's lie, B-15 started to reset the timeline.
After Mobius M. Mobius got permission to carry out a mission to try and corner the variant, B-15 entered for the briefing in time to see Mobius give Loki some daggers, which she promptly took away and stashed in her own locker before starting the briefing. She explained they would be going to Haven Hills, Alabama to Roxxcart Mall, a common superstore in the 2050s, and explained that the warehouse section was being used by civilians as a shelter from a hurricane. She reminded them that this event was considered a Class 10 Apocalypse, and that the variant inside most likely knew they were coming and should be considered hostile. She told them to keep an eye out for the missing reset charges and to prune any Loki they see, other than the Loki working with them.
Once inside the Roxxcart Mall, she was taken off guard when Loki used his magic to dry himself, and Loki was annoyed that she was put off by every move he made. She then ordered the Minutemen to take both of their teams to sweep the storm shelter for any reset charges. When Mobius began to take Loki with him to check the greenhouse, B-15 stopped him and said that Loki would be coming with her and Mobius with Hunter D-90. Mobius argued that it was his mission, but B-15 said it was her field op and that Loki was a threat. When Mobius continued to argue, she told him that he was welcome to hash it out back at the TVA, but Mobius said that they were too far into the mission and Loki stopped the argument and went with B-15 so that he could earn her trust.
B-15 and Loki then began to scour the aisles looking for reset charges or the Variant Loki and did not say anything to each other. When Loki tried to talk, B-15 told him to be quiet, before she heard a suspicious noise. Quietly turning the corner, she found a man in the plant aisle, apparently shopping. She pointed her weapon at him and he put his hands in the air. When asked why he was shopping for plants in a hurricane, he said that the plants were on sale because of the storm. She asked Loki if the man could possibly be the variant, to which Loki replied that although he would've worn a suit, it's still a possibility. B-15 then approached the man to search him, and he grabbed her hand, transferring green magic to her before the man promptly passed out.
Possessed by the Variant
When Loki asked if the passed out man was dead, B-15, now being controlled by the variant, told him that they usually don't die, before noting with interest that Loki was the fool the TVA brought to hunt the variant down. Loki immediately realized that he was currently talking to the variant and introduced himself.
The variant then led Loki through the store, as Loki told her that her methods of possession were clever if not cowardly, and the variant told him that he was just as cowardly for working with the TVA. Loki said that he was working for himself, but the variant doubted it. When a Roxxcart employee named Randy walked up to the two and asked if they needed help finding the shelter, she said no before transferring possession from B-15 to him, and B-15 passed out.
B-15 woke up shortly after, unaware of what fully happened. She regrouped with Mobius M. Mobius, Hunter D-90, and a Minuteman and went to find Loki, finding him in front of a Timedoor. They chased him down the aisle, telling him to wait, but he went through the Timedoor and it closed before they could stop him.
Learning the Truth
Back at the Time Variance Authority Office, B-15 joined Mobius M. Mobius in looking at the monitors in order to try and locate Loki and the variant. B-15 witnessed when the branch shot straight up off the Sacred Timeline, something they hadn't seen before, and they were then able to track the location of Loki.
Later, B-15 ran into Mobius in the hallway and asked him about Hunter C-20's status. Mobius also told her that Loki had told him that they were being lied too by the TVA. This information made B-15 pause, as she remembered that a memory of an old life of hers was unlocked from her time being enchanted.
In order to learn more about her memory and past life, B-15 went into Sylvie's interrogation room and withdrew her Time Stick showing her that she'd come in peace. B-15 then opened a Timedoor and told Sylvie to follow her. They were transported back to 2050 Haven Hills, Alabama outside the Roxxcart Mall. B-15 then asked Sylvie if she had planted that memory in her mind, but Sylvie told her she didn't have that power. Wanting to remember more, B-15 let Sylvie enchant her again. Afterwards, B-15 reported emotionally that she was happy back in her past life on Earth.
B-15 collected two weapons and took them to the Time-Keepers chamber, where she was then confronted by Ravonna Renslayer and some Minutemen. B-15 unlocked Loki and Sylvie's collars, freeing them from the Time Twister, and tossed them weapons. After doing so, B-15 was promptly knocked out by the Minutemen.
For her rebellion, Hunter B-15 was taken into custody and put in a Time Theatre. Sometime afterwards, Ravonna Renslayer arrived and asked her what Sylvie had done to her, to which B-15 stated that she had done nothing, noting that the Time-Keepers were fake and wondered why Renslayer wanted to protect the TVA so badly. She then deduced that Renslayer no longer cared about the TVA, but rather was more interested in learning who truly created it. B-15 added that Sylvie was after the TVA based on revenge and asserted that she would find out the TVA’s origins sooner than her.
Destroying the TVA
Hunter B-15 was freed from being in custody by Mobius M. Mobius. After that, she snuck along on Hunter D-90's mission to Fremont, Ohio in 2018 to Franklin D. Roosevelt High School. There she entered the vice principal's office and was found by D-90 who asked her what she was doing there. They were then met by Rebecca Tourminet who was alarmed by their presence and asked what they were doing in her school. D-90 thought Tourminet was Ravonna Renslayer, but B-15 told him that that wasn't Renslayer and that she had to explain the truth about the TVA to him and the rest of the Minutemen. Later B-15 and Mobius M. Mobius would watch as the timeline would branch in mutiple timelines in the Time Variance Authority Office.
When Kang the Conqueror came into power of the Multiverse, he became the ruler of the Time Variance Authority. In doing so, he got different variants of B-15 and Mobius M. Mobius. When B-15 and Mobius saw on the monitor that the Multiverse was expanding uncontrollably, they realized that they couldn't do anything to stop it.
B-15 and Mobius went to the library, discussing the branching timelines, when Loki arrived and told them about the Citadel at the End of Time and warned them about the many variants of a dangerous person coming. However, B-15 and Mobius, not knowing who Loki was, responded in a confused manner. B-15 then used her TemPad to call in for more reinforcements to help out.
