History: The following comes from the Superhero Database:
When Lilith, an ancient vampire, teamed up with the Cabal (a group of Daemonites) to produce a symbiotic suit that would enable her to walk in the light of day, she recruited a hooker off the street named Amanda to test it on.

After donning the suit, Amanda became Taboo and joined the Cabal, serving as Pike’s lover. After being framed for murder and imprisioned, Backlash broke her out and she joined WildCORE with him. Amanda has served with Marc Slayton as his lover and most trusted teammate ever since

History of the symbiote comes from the Wildcore Site:

Lilith is a very old vampire who was working with the Cabal (kind of the Daemonite mob) to produce a suit which would enable her to walk in the light of day. The suit was made by Branum from the DNA of Calobis, the father of all vampires. Taboo was recruited off the the street (she was a hooker) as a test subject for the suit. After this she joined the Cabal, was Pike’s lover, and was subsequently framed for murder and imprisoned, after which Backlash broke her out.

There is indeed a male symbiote, a more advanced model. Its twice as powerful as Taboo’s and is wielded by Sammeal. This second symbiote is also the ‘key’ to freeing Lord Calobis who is trapped within Taboo’s symbiote.
