Kalinda is a Foutunata Seer within Arachnos in City of Heroes. For a long time Kalinda was one of the two starting contacts for villains starting in the Rogue Isles, but in the most recent issues Kalinda and her rival contact Matthew Burke were both replaced by Operative Kuzmin.
Kalinda is noted as the most important seer in Arachnos with the possible exception of Ghost Widow because of her prediction of “the Destined Ones” as she has dubbed them. Destined Ones are Villains of world changing potential. Unlike the less than ambitious or accomplished Hellions, Skulls and other NPC villains the player-villains have real potential to shape and change events in the world. Kalinda predicted them and informed Ghost Widow who in turn informed Lord Recluse. Kalinda was asked to prepare a list of all the newest “Destined Ones” just prior to their arrival in the Rogue Isles. In response to the newest names on the list Arachnos broke various criminals out of the Ziggursky Prison, a prison complex specifically designed to hold super-villain level threats. The newest villains flown in from the Zig were encouraged by the Arachnos pilot that flew them out to meet with Kalinda, though villains could express distrust of Arachnos and simply go to Matthew Burke instead to work for their own interests instead of repaying Arachnos. Both Matthew and Kalinda gave similar missions that broke in new to the Rogue Isles villains as they rose from mere criminals to super-villains.
Though Kalinda's role as a contact was retired with the newer issues of City of Heroes she is still considered one of the most important Seers in Arachnos for her prediction of the “Destined Ones” which Arachnos uses to keep track of potential assets and rivals. Lord Recluse had two plans which to date have been his largest scale plans. The first was to have Doctor Aeon construct a device known as “the Web Device” to give him every super-power in the world at once. The second was the defeat of the Freedom-Phalanx and his arch-enemy Statesman with a strike-force of super-villains less reputable than himself or his four patrons. The super-villains chosen though were all Destined Ones that Lord Recluse intended to use to humiliate Statesman with defeat against the so called no name villains. With their potential at his disposal Lord Recluse and all the Arachnos officials on the way up to him will be wary of the player character's power because of their status as Destined Ones on Kalinda's list. Kalinda still makes her post on Mercy Isle and watches all potential talent that enters Mercy Island. Though she does not confer with the newly arriving Destined Ones directly anymore she still reports who to look out for to Arachnos.
