When only eight years old, Megan Napier had lost both her parents due to mob affiliations. Being poor meant her father had to make sacrifices and take a chance to try and obtain a better life; one that didn't involve renting a cheap, run down apartment in the middle of Downtown Gotham. He had quit his job at a local chemical plant to pursue the career of a comedian. He quickly came to regret that decision, as no one was impressed. There was no way in hell they'd rehire him-- not like that job was exactly safe, anyway. With no job and no relatives (that really cared about him, anyway), his next bright idea was to contact a well-known. lowlife mob member about robbing his way to the rich life. The plan was made to steal the payroll from his old job at the Ace Chemical Plant. Eventually, Megan's mother found out, begging him to cancel all plans and suggested other ways to make money. By that time, he had realized it was a terrible idea to even think of stealing from his old job, and tried canceling plans with the mob over the phone. They 'agreed', and everything seemed normal and calm for the next couple of days, until her father managed to score a job interview with a small company. Upon returning that night, he found no trace of his wife or daughter-- only a note, ordering him to be at the chemical plant before midnight if he wanted to see his loved ones again.
A man by the name of Oliver Hammet had knocked out his wife and tied up Megan in an empty apartment room next door to theirs. Hammet's plan was to set the room ablaze, in hopes that it'd not only kill the two, but maybe even destroy more lives in rooms nearby. He tampered with the oven and set it to allow him to escape- and while he wasn't looking- Megan, as well. Her upper body strength showed potential, though, at that age, wasn't well trained. The cheap rope she had been tied up with easily slid off, but left burns and bruises on her arms and wrists. The child managed escape the building, before the top floor had literally exploded- ash, smoke, and brick fell around her. No doubt anyone on that floor-- or anyone under that room, even-- had been burnt to a crisp.
That night ended in a trip to the station, with Megan heading home with her 'richer and better than everyone' uncle afterwards. With her mother dead and father missing, she was allowed to stay at the house until the father was found, according to police. However, she grew into her teenage years still living in that house and believing that her father was dead, too. It's what her uncle had convinced her into believing, stating that 'any man like that would not survive that long on the streets and he'd be looking for you if he actually were alive- or cared.' Though, an arrogant man, he cared for Megan like his own daughter, enrolling her in the best schools- and martial arts programs. He was a sucker for promoting strength and defense, and after what had happened, he wanted to make sure she'd be able to care for herself if ever back in Gotham as an adult.
At the age of eighteen, she moved out of the house and headed back into Gotham with enough money to rent a small but well-kept house in a safe neighborhood in the city.
Until the age of eight, she maintained a carefree view on the world, despite her living conditions. Megan managed to keep good grades in school and good relationships with peers. Once the tragic incident hit, she detached herself from the people around her; though grateful her uncle took her in, she remained distant. Her grades fell, and she lost a lot of passion for the things she loved-- except for martial arts. She and her teacher noticed her fast reflexes and strong upper-body strength almost immediately. This, along with seeing reports of a masked crime-fighter lurking the city of Gotham, inspired her to become a vigilante as well. Currently, her sense of humor is crude towards anyone she considers a friend (or an enemy), but keeps a serious and polite attitude towards strangers and anyone important. She cares deeply for Bruce and does try to show it.
