The celebrity daughter of hip hop stars Roy “Daddy Libido” Washington and Angel “Sexy Mutha” Depres, Roxy was dancing in her parents music videos from an early age. During puberty her powers manifested and she turned her back on the music industry to enroll in the Xavier’s institute. She was assigned to Gambit’s squad where she was taught hand to hand combat and became team leader. When Mystique in the disguise of new mutant “Foxx” infiltrated the team she revealed an attraction to her.

On M-day she retained her powers but lost in Emma Frost’s showdown in the Danger room resulting in her not being trained as an x-man. This however doesn’t stop her from being taken to Limbo and tortured when Illyana Rasputin is returned to life. When Apocalypse returns she is given front line duty and was highly recommended by Rogue and Havok to join the jr X-men team.  Roxy however wasn’t interested and was even contemplating leaving the x-men when the government started treating Xavier’s as an internment camp. She accompanies the x-men when they go to San Francisco and establish Utopia. Along with Frenzy and Nekra she took on Ms Marvel. Later on she is captured by Emplate who uses her as food. She is eventually rescued by Rogue and confides in her friends she has a crush on her.
