Bio: Since she was a little girl, Jesse wanted to be a hero just like her deceased mother, legendary Japanese hero Yukiko Gearsworth. She has hardly any memories of her, yet all the stories she ever heard about her convinced her it was the path she wanted to follow. However her father, industrial multimillionaire and criminal mastermind Anthony Gearsworth, wouldnt have it. His wife and his daughter were the most important people in his life; after losing his wife, he wasnt about to let his daughter follow the same path. Villains led dangerous lives, he argued, but the life of a hero, valiant and self-sacrificing, was even more dangerous. But Jesse was a wild stallion of a child, the fiery ambition of her father combined with the selfless compassion of her mother. So, ignoring the warnings of her father, she began to take down small time criminals in a simple disguise with some of her own inventions.
Her shot at the big time, however, came from her own tinkering. When one of her latest robotics experiments decided to rampage through the city, the Titans sprang into action. But Gearsworth engineering has always been the best, and for a moment it seemed as if the Titans would be unable to best the machine. But Jesse, determined to put down her rogue robot, appeared just in time to turn the tide. After expertly shutting the maddened machine down, Jesse explained the situation and apologized to the heroes. Still, Robin and the others were impressed with her talents and tenacity; they offered her a trial period with the team. Ecstatic at the offer, she eagerly accepted. Not wasting any time, Jesse already began to tinker with and improve Titans Tower, and even Cyborgs car and Robins motorbike. She proved an invaluable and resourceful ally in taking on the Titans many enemies. Still, her own recklessness was about to come back to haunt her. The robot she had so swiftly stopped was not as shut down as initially believed. The machines intelligence was swiftly expanding at an unprecedented rate, and returned soon in an attempt to turn the citys technology against it. The Titans jumped in to find chaos, as machines all around the area began attacking civilians. Shocked at the evil her A.I. had become capable of, Jesse felt responsible and took it upon herself to bring down the evil intelligence, now calling itself Fatherboard and sporting a sleeker new body. In a massive final battle, the two traded blow after blow, but it seemed that Jesses fragile human body would give under the power of her own creations endless endurance. But, just as she gave up hope, she heard the voice of her mother support and reinvigorate her. Her soul sparked, and her latent super-powers awakened in a raging lightning storm. She had inherited her mothers power over electricity all along, and her emotional battle with Fatherboard awakened those dormant abilities. With her newfound strength, she fried Fatherboard for what she thought was the last time.
Feeling responsible and guilty, Jesse was prepared for the Titans to kick her off the team. When they handed her a communicator and asked if she was coming back home with them, it was the happiest moment of her life. Since that battle however, Fatherboard has returned more than once, each time more intelligent and more hateful of humanity. Jesse has fought hard to stop him every time, and so far has managed to win. Jesse has since become a valued member of the Titans team, and has recruited several new heroes personally into the team. Her father, though he still worries for her and the path she chose, has since accepted and supported her every move. However, he often makes it hard for the Titans, if only because he cares so much for his daughter. Though hed be surprised if he realized how conflicted she really felt.
Since discovering her new powers, Jesse has experimented with them and has sought out to push her limits. However, it also made her question the decisions she made. Jesse has since reconsidered forging as strongly ahead as a hero, and her new all-black costume reflects this. Though she tried to hide her forays into criminal activity from her teammates, the others soon found out who the mysterious new super villain in town was. Although Robin does not agree, he and the others have accepted that she has trouble deciding what she wants. She avoids truly being evil (usually committing robberies or messing with superheroes/villains), and is very professional in her crimes, just like her father. She has, however, immersed herself in super villain society and culture, and when not at home with her father or at Titan Tower, can be found frequenting various criminal joints. Shes not above using connections, whether good or evil, to fight (or commit) crimes. Which side she chooses in the end is as good as anyones guess, but for now she makes it work.
