Barbara London was the mother of Dazzler, but left her to her father while she was still very young. Although she loved her daughter very much, her marriage to Carter Blaire was to much of a strain. She eventually left and fell in love with another man with whom she also had a daughter, Dazzler's stepsister Lois London. Eventually it turned out that this man was an even worse person then her first husband. She took Lois with her and soon left her second husband. Eventually, years later, Barbara would come into contact with Dazzler again by accident. She was guild-written, but the two eventually tried to reconcile and hoped to renew their mother-daughter relationship.
