Fictional character biography
The creature that became Fera was once the leader of a pack of wolves in K'un-L'un. The K'un-L'un wolf pack attacked Heather and her son Daniel Rand, and Heather sacrificed her life so that Daniel could live and become the Iron Fist.
Fera was later given humanoid form by the mystical Amulet of Shirrair and Master Khan made Fera his agent. While working with Ward Meachum, Fera attacked Iron Fist who revealed that she had slain his mother. Master Khan recalled her before she could kill Iron Fist. She soon after fought Misty Knight, and then El Aguila, Iron Fist, Power Man, Lt. Rafael Scarfe, and Colleen Wing. Fera confronted Iron Fist again, but when Master Khan focused on defeating Iron Fist his control over Fera was weakened, and she tore the Amulet of Sharrair from his neck and was freed from his control.
As Ferocia, she joined Superia's Femizons, and sensed the presence of Captain America and Paladin infiltrating the S.S. Superia. The Femizons attacked them and captured them, but they eventually broke free and foiled Superia's plot, and the Femizons broke up. Soon after, Fera was one of the wolf-based beings summoned to Starkesboro, Massachusetts via the summons of Dredmund Druid and the Godstone. She attacked Captain America, but was captured by Moonhunter.
During the Civil War storyline, Ferocia, Blue Streak, Flame, and Kingsize later broke Ricadonna from Sing Sing. Ferocia and her allies waited in the Corporation HQ on Hart Island and she trained her shapeshifting abilities, and Ricadonna told them that they would finish their job now. During the Heroes for Hire's attack on the Corporation's facility Ferocia attacked Misty Knight, and was later carried by Misty into an escape tunnel before it exploded.
During the Avengers: Standoff! storyline, Ferocia was an inmate of Pleasant Hill, a gated community established by S.H.I.E.L.D.
During the "Opening Salvo" part of the Secret Empire storyline, Ferocia is recruited by Baron Helmut Zemo to join the Army of Evil.

She is a savage, animalistic warrior and has the form of a lupine humanoid that is much different from the description of a werewolf.
