Family: Born to Ruth and Joseph Clarke, Mona’s parents are deeply religious and do not recognize evolution or science. Mona always felt like an outcast in her family, due to her advanced intellect and keen interest in Darwin's Theory and Science in general. Her parents found her interests disrespectful and condemned her academic prowess. It was her Grandfather who funded her private education and enabled her to advance in her education at an excelled rate as he recognized the genius in his Granddaughter.
Whilst taking part in a Student Exchange Program, Mona embarked on a whale monitoring science trip with some fellow academics. A pirate named Captain Filch attacked their vessel, whilst Mona selflessly helped her fellow students board lifeboats, enabling their escape, she was kidnapped by Filch; who tried to convince her to help him with his experiments aboard his submarine. His goal being to take over the world! Mona, fearing for her safety, played along, until one night she got the opportunity to act! In her attempt to destroy his nuclear reactor, she was exposed to nuclear waste and toxins which mutated her into a human sized, Salamander. After this, she vowed to stop Filch, no matter what!
Her opportunity for justice came in the form of McDonald Crump's birthday party on his private yacht, it was a costume party, so no one would question her mutant appearance. She had learnt that Filch was planning on hijacking the vessel! Sneaking aboard and posing as a date with an unsuspecting guest who was dressed as a Ninja Turtle, Mona quickly ditched him and started on her mission. Her faux date, soon caught up with her though and found her tying up the ship's Captain. Her faux date was none other than a REAL Ninja Turtle, Raphael, he assumed that she was up to no good and after a brief scuffle, in which Mona was able to easily overcome Raphael, the ship hits a force field that has appeared out of nowhere! The party guests were kidnapped by Captain Filch and his mutant anemones. At first, Raphael thinks Mona was trying to lure the ship to Filch, but she tells him she was trying to get it away from Filch. Believing her, Turtle and Salamander team up to rescue the guests and bring a halt to Filch’s plan. Having dealt justice, Mona found an ally and friend in Raphael along with his Brothers, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo.

Whilst on the other hand Mona is prone to spells of depression, missing her life of schooling and the social whirl, which in turn can leave her Boyfriend feeling inadequate... despite this, Raphael always managed to cheer her up and she in turn can bring his out of his angsty moods.
