The full origin and history of the mutant Lillian Crawley remains unrevealed. At some point, the Canadian citizen was contacted by James MacDonald Hudson, who was recruiting those with superhuman powers to train under the government's supervision. Crawley agreed, and joined Department H's Gamma Flight, the third tier of super humans who would train under the idea that they may eventually graduate to the Canadian government's premiere team, Alpha Flight.
During her time with Gamma Flight, Crawley met and courted fellow team-mate Madison Jeffries. Unfortunately, Department H and its Flights were disbanded before Crawley could advance, although Alpha Flight soon resumed operating in an unofficial status.
Crawley was working as a waitress when she was contacted by Delphine Courtney, a robot under the employ of Jerry Jaxon, an enemy of Hudson plotting revenge for a perceived slight. Jaxon used Crawley and other Gamma Flight members to form the first Omega Flight, and ordered them to attack Alpha Flight.
