Tatiana Caban is a fictional character, a mutant in the Marvel Universe. Her first appearance was in issue #4 of the limited series NYX.
After finishing a day at three different jobs, Tatiana walked home and stopped to feed a group of stray animals. When she arrived home, her sister explained that their mom was out on a date. Their mother soon arrived home, bringing her boyfriend Reuben with her. Tatiana's bird Barretta flew at Reuben, who knocked it to the ground. Tatiana's mother made the girl apologize to Reuben.
On her way to school, Tatiana witnessed a dog getting hit by a car. She quickly grabbed the bleeding animal and asked the driver to take her to the free animal clinic a few blocks down the street. After getting the animal to the hospital, Tatiana made it to the Bronx Vocational High School. She was covered in the dog's blood. She soon began to pick up nearby scents, and easily overheard what her schoolmates were whispering about her. After throwing up, Tatiana transformed into a dog-like creature with brown and white fur. She was attacked by an anti-mutant mob at her school, and chased into an alleyway. In order to defend herself, Tatiana killed an alleycat and touched its blood, transforming into a black, dog-like creature and scaring away the mob. She was calmed down by X-23, who had arrived on the scene with Kiden Nixon and Cameron Palmer.
After transforming back to her normal form, Kiden Nixon explained to Tatiana that she had been seeing visions of her dead father who told her where to go at key moments. Tatiana claimed to believe her, but opted to return home instead of staying with Kiden and company. She returned home to find her mother in bed with Reuben. As her mother started to argue with her, Tatiana was attacked by Barretta and then her cat, Skeeter. Terrified, Tatiana ran outside to find that Kiden had followed her. Kiden told her that her powers were not a dream, and Tatiana agreed to join her. While staying with Kiden, Cameron Palmer, and X-23, Tatiana complained about their sketchy future plans.
