Adrian Sterling grew up on a lavish southern plantation in New Orleans, Louisiana, during the latter half of the 19th century. During that time, she met and fell in love with the infamous bounty hunter known as Jonah Hex. Although she pleaded with Jonah to remain in New Orleans with her, the gruff gunslinger confessed that he could never acclimate to a lifestyle of Southern gentility.
- Etiquette: Adrian was schooled in the ways of Southern social etiquette.
- This version of Adrian Sterling (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- As Adrian Sterling was active during the late 19th century, it is practical to assume that she has since passed away.
- Adrian was once engaged to a man named Clifford Mapely.
