Adrienne was the first child born to Hazel and Winston Frost. Siblings Christian, Emma and Cordelia followed. The Frost home was not one of love and kindness but one of mind and power games. She was the perfect child and was the favourite of their cold and emotionless father. From a very young age, Adrienne made it her point of duty to be the dutiful daughter, hoping to gain her father's favour and eventually win all his money and inheritance.
Adrienne was a power monger and showed little remorse or emotion when hurting her siblings both emotionally and physically. At an early age Adrienne discovered her mutant ability of Psychometry, the ability to touch an object and instantly know the object's history in terms of events surrounding its past, present, and future owners. Her power revealed to her what she had always known, Winston, her father had little intention of dividing his fortune between all of his children. Instead, he planned to pick the child who he perceived as being able to guide his company into a state of growth and prosperity. This reinforced Adrienne’s original beliefs and she became cold and distant to the world, the only people who were worth anything were those she could manipulate in her chess game of power.
For years, Adrienne ran her own company using insight gleaned from her Psychometric gift to gain a vast personal fortune. It was this wealth that prompted her estranged sister Emma Frost to contact her years later to ask her to loan her some money after her Massachusetts Academy had fallen into debt. Initially turning Emma down because of their past stormy history, Adrienne accepted her offer after using her powers to learn that the academy was secretly the home for Generation X She became co-headmaster of the Massachusetts Academy.
