Grace's parents were killed when she was around fourteen years old. She and her younger sister Ana went into foster care, but they left after she accidentally killed a boy with her illusions. They both lived on the street for years after that.

Grace's dark illusions were so powerful that they even affected her. Only Ana could brink her back to sanity by producing happy illusions. When Ana was kidnapped by Nate Tipton and forced to produce bad illusions for the purpose of killing Calydons, Grace sought help from Order of the Blade member Quinn Masters. It turned out that Grace was Quinn's sheva and they became the first couple in history to defeat the curse and survive bonding.
