Do you really want to mess with me?
In red with the patented Hawkins smirk.
In green with the smirk.
Bliss was born in Las Vegas to a blackjack dealer and a feature show dancer. She was lucky to have been born at all, as her mother had taken a serious fall early in the pregnancy. The Hawkins family was far from rich, but they were happy.
When Bliss was six, her father was killed in a freak accident after punishing her. Afterwards, no one could persuade the distraught child that the accident was not her fault. A few months afterwards, Bliss was present when her mother was killed in a accident during a stage show in front of thousands of witnesses.
Thanks to insurance and settlements, Bliss was quite the poor little rich girl. There were no relatives to take her in, so she entered the foster care system. Thanks to certain...fees paid to bureaucrats, the girl was placed in an especially terrible home. Before she could be completely brutalized, Bliss fled after only a few months. Bliss spent years on the road, wandering across the country. She found any number of benefactors along the way, along with a few unsavory types. The longest time she was in one spot was when she was thirteen in Amarillo, Texas. She was unofficially adopted by the staff of a used record store who sent her to school and took care of her. She was there for a year and a half before the place burned down with no survivors other than Bliss.
After that, she made her way cross country until she reached New York City. Her powers were increasing in strength, and she was running out of options. Emma Frost discovered her while she worked as a pot scrubber in a Chinese restaurant. She took the scrawny girl in and began to tailor Bliss into a proper young lady of great power at her disposal. Bliss spent several years at the Frost Academy climbing up the ladder until she was a favorite of Miss Frost. She made excellent use of her time, catching up academically thanks to tutoring.
She was at the top of the food chain at the Academy. The environment was competitive and cutthroat, and she excelled at the things asked of her. She was, however, far from happy. She was in a destructive relationship with another student, and she could see she was being groomed for unpleasant things to come. But she had few options left to her.
One bitter cold Winter night, Bliss was returning from a rave only to discover a young man walking without a coat along the road. That young man was none other than Dairon Goodwinson, a student of the Xavier Academy. Despite her untrusting nature, she picked him up and took him home with her. That started a chain of events that led Bliss to leave XI rather than lose the young man she came to love.
