Babs and her family moved to the colony world Gridir when she was three years old. Her parents were on a self-imposed mission to bring peace to Gridir, a world plagued with crime and violence. When Babs was five years old her parents were assassinated at a peace rally. Even the wealthy districts of Gridir were hostile places to live and resources for orphans was near non-existent. With no attempts made to contact next of kin, Babs was placed in an orphanage on the outskirts of one of the poorest districts. This orphanage did not tend to the learning of the children and only provided a place to sleep and two meals a day. Babs was very polite, shy, and meek. However, to avoid starving and being bullied, she learned to be aggressive and mean. Soon she had gained a rough and tumble reputation and was known to be short-tempered and cynical with most people including her friends. In the slums of Gridir she became known as the 'Bad Seed' which was somewhat of a play on her nickname and last name. By the time Babs had turned twelve the only truly possible chance of having a decent time around her was when she was playing Basketball, any other time she was often judgemental and rude.
Babs often turns to bully others and pushes those who try to get close away as a means of defending herself from pain and ridicule. She has the capacity for great kindness but her rough early years have blocked her from expressing her softer emotions.
