The woman lived in poverty in Gotham City and had two daughters, Reagan and Margot. They lived in a quiet neighborhood in a small building of ten apartments with a welcoming community. However, when real estate moguls began buying the area's buildings to develop them into luxury penthouses, the woman, her daughters, and all their neighbors were forcefully evicted.
Years later, the woman taught English to an Indian woman who opened a vegan restaurant which made good paneer of tofu. Over the years, the two became friends and the woman often visited the restaurant alongside Reagan.
