Valerie's father was a poor man who thought he could make it big at M.C. Curtis' casino. But Curtis was a member of the Council, a criminal organization, and all his games were rigged, so Valerie's dad lost his entire life savings and ended up taking his own life.

Wanting to avenge her father, Valerie attempted to blow up Curtis with a bomb she strapped to her chest, but she ended up being "rescued" by Nemesis. Once she found out Nemesis was planning to bring Curtis and the other Council members to justice, Valerie decided to join him in his fight.
