Felicia Hardy is the daughter of a world-renowned Cat Burglar Walter Hardy who before his arrest encouraged her to never second best if she loved basketball. She should work to become a basketball player or a cheerleader. During her freshman year in college she was almost sexually assaulted at a party in a bathroom but was saved by a student named Ryan by then they both became close friends to the point where their friendship slowed became a relationship, until one night Ryan wanted their relationship to became more Physical in which Felicia instantly protested against it.
Hating the idea of being a victim she vowed to kill her attacker putting aside her studies and practicing many fighting styles including acrobatics.
After months of training she set out to kill Ryan but before she could he was already killed in a car accident, furious at her one shot to seek revenge towards her attacker Felicia decided to put her skills into thievery though she was eventually caught, after being arrested Felicia was bailed out by Black Fox her Father’s mentor who took Felicia in as his next pupil.

Felicia looked for a way to earn his trust and continued to be the Black Cat Persona as a misguided attempt to get Spider-Man’s affection however she’s still cunning enough to fake mental instability ensuring she was housed in a secure facility when she was released Felicia initially agreed to go straight for Spider-Man and the Web Slinger, even as his friend on the force Captain DeWolff begin drawing amnesty papers.
