Grace was a district attorney whom had many difficulties in her normal life as well as her career. After the seeming death of her husband, she had to take care of 3 young children. Among them her oldest son Chris (whom, unbeknownst to her was the superhero known as Darkhawk). Besides this very difficult task Grace also had problems when she had to legally fight in court against a criminal organization. This organization was bent on stopping her from reaching this goal by extortion. Darkhawk however intervened and managed for Grace to have a relatively normal life.
Some years later, Grace's home was destroyed in a seeming attack. Luckily, Darkhawk managed to escape with his mother and brothers before there was any harm and Darkhawk, after the events of War of Kings, eventually stopped the assaulter.
