Jessica Blute is the daughter of Sam and Jennifer Blute. The Blutes are a brutal family. The patriarch of the family, Hugo Blute, had betrayed Jews to the Germans during WWII. Sam is the leader of a criminal gang, which consist of his 5 brothers: Jimmy, Michael, Nicholas, Pete and Steve. After Sam met Jennifer and started a family with her, his brothers regarded him as soft and weak. They murdered him in cold blood. At the funeral, Pete vowed to take care of his sister-in-law Jennifer. The teenage Jessica was sent away to boarding school. Pete talked in his sleep, revealing the truth about Sam's murder to a sleepless Jennifer. She wrote all she knew in her letters to Jessica. A year later, Jennifer committed suicide.
Jennifer had urged Jessica to disappear because the Blutes have a habit of removing all loose ends. Fearing for her life, Jessica faked her death by jumping off a yacht during Spring Break. A good swimmer, she was able to reach land unseen and began a new life as Jenny Bell. She trained herself in all kinds of fighting styles, weaponry, industrial espionage, forgery, and many more things, all with revenge on her mind. Revenge against her uncles, for murdering her father and driving her mother to suicide.
During an accountancy class, Jenny met Andrew Fellows, her teacher. He was the opposite of every man she had met before, and she fell in love with him. Together they had two children: Mark and Alice. Jenny almost wanted to give up on her plans for revenge, but when the Blutes evaded their third prosecution, she created her alter ego Jennifer Blood.
Jennifer Blood is created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Adriano Batista.
