    Patricia Trayce worked for the Gotham City Police Department, as did her husband Paul. Her husband died, but she has said that the death wasn't as hard on her as her partner's death. Finally, she could no longer stomach what she perceived to be a revolving door justice system. The cops would arrest the crooks and they would be out on the streets very quickly. She was also angry over her partner Luis's murder, who was killed by Jeremy Barker, who was going to get federal immunity for testimony. After the death of her partner she took care of his son Luis Jr, or LJ, as his mother Marie was already dead.
