Tayla Skott started life as a normal Earth girl, but after her uncle performed less than legitimate experiments on her, she was anything but normal. Though the only goal of the experiment was to graft gills to a human being, Tayla also acquired bright green skin and the ability to store and project electricity. Wanting to use her powers for good, she tried out for the Legion of Super-Heroes.

During her tryouts she met Nightwind, Crystal Kid and Blok, other potential recruits at the event. When the Legion decided to have them wear their special flight rings and go out on a mission with them, it was to see their capacity on a field assignment. Thinking that the mission was only a test and not real, Lamprey, Nightwind and Crystal Kid were easily defeated by the villains known as the Starburst Bandits. Blok, however, stopped the criminals and also won membership into the Legion.

Lamprey, Crystal Kid and Nightwind trained with Wildfire. After Wildfire trounced them in a sparring match, he confided in the three his true tragic past, which he had not shared with other members of the Legion. Lamprey grew to greatly admire Wildfire, and decided not to give up, so she applied to the Legion Academy along with her future best friend, Nightwind.
