Bio:

Born in Chicago, Deirdre grew up believing her mom had died in a car accident while she was still very young. Her father grieved then remarried, and although she was always treated with love and kindness, she grew up very outspoken against the injustices inflicted against women across the world. Fortunately for her, both her step-mother and her father were supportive of her activist inclinations, and she was well on her way to attending university with dreams of a degree in engineering and being a pioneer in a traditionally male-dominated field of science.

Her real mother, Rosie the Riveter, showed up around her nineteenth birthday and enlightened her as to the Titan war that was raging.

So Deirdre, now armed with her relics and birthrights and a renewed sense of purpose, eventually found her way into Michael Celevos’ university for the gifted. She thought he was something like Professor Xavier out of the X-Men. She was very, very wrong.

Following that mess and the liberation of the young Scions from Celevos’ grasp, she’s since thrown in her lot with the Scrivners. With five other young Scions (and an occasional visit from a demigod Scion), she’s part of a Band that spends its time keeping watch over New York while Rufus and Vette are dealing with bigger problems.
