Growing up in a middle class family she excelled academically and knew from an early age she wanted to be a lawyer. After graduating from college she became a criminal attorney but became disenfranchised with the field when she saw that money and corruption usually impeded real justice. One day she chanced upon the guns of the original crimson avenger. Drawn to the weapons she bought them from the pawn shop with plans to use them in enacting true justice on a man who had corrupted the courts to get away with murder.

Once she had killed this man the power of the guns fully manifested. An ever-bleeding and painful bullet wound manifested in the center of her chest. This served as a macabre emblem for the new crimson avenger. She also opted for a blindfold motif as opposed to a mask as an ode to lady justice. She briefly was a member of the Justice Society but then returned to the life of an avenger and was last seen during Infinite Crisis.
