From birth her life has been intimately affected by so called superheroes. As a child she met Luke Cage and Danny Rand who often acted as babysitters thanks to her status as niece of the original White Tiger. They served as her closest Uncles and Misty Knight her Aunt. As she grew she went to college where she got a degree in Political science and masters in criminology. Following in her Brother Rey Del Toro’s footsteps she joined the force and served two years before being promoted. Tragedy struck when her uncle Hector Ayala/White Tiger was falsely accused of a crime and was shot and killed on the steps of the court. She then inherited the Jade Tiger amulets and came into contact with Daredevil. After donning the amulets she found all of her natural abilities amplified. Under Dardevil’s guidance she became the White Tiger. Realizing corruption in the force she retired from active duty.  Around this time she reconnected with uncles Danny Rand/Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

Angela is later slain by Lady Bullseye and resurrected as a member of “The Hand”. She served in this capacity under Daredevil’s leadership during Shadowland. After Daredevil was defeated she sent the amulets to her younger aunt Ava Ayala.
