Suzanne "Cissie" King-Jones, alias Arrowette was a skilled archer and member of Young Justice. She is the daughter of Bonnie King aka Miss Arrowette and Star City reporter Bernell "Bowstring" Jones. Bernell and his family lived a happy life that is until he ate some bad shellfish and died. Her mothers received a large sum of money from his life insurance, which was delivered by Hal Jordan himself, back when he worked for Evergreen Insurance.
Her mother was a Olympic-level archer and insisted that her daughter reach the same level. Bonnie had developed a psychological disorder and forced Cissie to train. Apparently from seeing Green Arrow and Speedy in action, she developed trick arrows and the 'Miss Arrowette' identity to use as a hero.
The first hero she encountered was the speedster Impulse. Cissie and her mother worked together with speedster and his current guardian and mentor Max Mercury, to defeat the super villain Spazz. However Max was concerned about Bonnie forcing her daughter to become a hero and fight crime. Max gets Child Services involved and Bonnie loses custody of her daughter and she is sent to the boarding school Saint Elias School for Girls. However, Cissie continued to train while overseen by Dr. Marcy Money, who remarked that she really was a good archer, better than her mother.
Cissie returns in a new costume, this time facing the criminal Harm, but she is injured by him using one of her own arrows against her. She escapes and contacts the teenage superheroes Young Justice, together they defeat Harm with the help of his sister Secret and the new Wonder Girl. These three young heroes then officially join the team and they become close friends in the process. During a game of "Truth or Dare" that, if put in a position where she had a choice of being a hero, she would ask her mother's advice and then do the opposite! 
Dr. Marcy Money brutally murdered and being the only adult she has ever trusted, Cissie tracks down the killers to get her revenge. She nearly kills one of them herself, but is stopped by Superboy. Cissie is so effect by the incident that she vows never don Arrowette again. 
Now free from the team she reconciles with her mother, and trains for the "Summer Games" in Sydney, Australia. Cissie ends up winning a gold, and becomes something of a celebrity on her return to the US. She is offered a guest-spot on the television show, "Wendy the Werewolf Stalker" which just happens to be Superboy's favorite show. Later when Traya Sutton; Red Tornado's adopted daughter comes to Saint Elias School for Girls, she helps her adjust to her new home. Later when when Secret was returned to life, Cissie helps her become a student as well.  Later An alien plant gets loose in Cissie and Traya's dorm and Wonder Girl, Slobo and Red Tornado come to the rescue to stop it from hurting any of the students. 
Now living the normal life she always, she has no desire or want to return to the life of heroics, even though friends and family think she should. The team invites her to play baseball on an alien planet, with the fate many innocent lives on the outcome game. This annoys Cissie as there is a long list of better candidates most of whom have superpowers. She reluctantly participates and they barely win. 
During the war with Imperiex, she served as field medic for the team, although the team is again divided due to uncertainty about Robin's loyalty because of Batman's files on the Justice League and other such heroes.

But she is rejected, Cissie with the help of fellow student Greta Hayes threatens to leave the school and take her celebrity status as a gold-winning archer with her, they reluctantly agree and cassie is enroll in the school.
