Biography

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"The Things We Bury"

In 1945, she was among many Chinese prisoners sent to Austria to be experimented on by the HYDRA scientist Werner Reinhardt. Jiaying and the other prisoners were forced to take hold of a strange device called "the Obelisk" that killed everyone who came into contact with it except for Jiaying. Before Dr. Reinhardt could dissect her to discover why she could touch the device, his facility was raided by the SSR and the prisoners were liberated. In 1988, while her daughter was still an infant, Jiaying was captured by HYDRA agents, and was sent back to Austria where Dr. Reinhardt, now known by the alias Daniel Whitehall, was starting his research up again after he was secretly freed from prison by Hydra agents in the U.S. government. Whitehall recognized Jiaying as the woman who could touch the Obelisk and live, and was surprised to see she hadn't aged in the 40 years since he had seen her. Making good on his promise, Daniel Whitehall dissected Jiaying. Dr. Whitehall had Jiaying's organs planted inside him, restoring his youth. HYDRA left her butchered remains out in the wilderness like refuse.

"What They Become"

When Grant Ward bring Skye to Calvin Zabo to fulfill him promise to her. Cal tells her the story about what happened to her mother and how Daniel Whitehall had her butchered.

"Aftershocks"

Jiaying, Skye's mother, overlooks Gordon, a young Inhuman who recently underwent Terrigenesis. He isn't handling his transformation well, as his skin covered his eyes and he has little control over his teleportation abilities. She tries to comfort him, but with little success. Another Inhuman, Yat-Sen, tells her it is a blessing she ages so slowly and could help many generations with their transformation. Without her, they would be lost.

"One Door Closes"

Gordon mentioned Jiaying to Skye as his mentor and the person who helped him learn how the process of Terrigenesis and the Inhumans.

Character traits

Originally, Jiaying was a compassionate and kind woman, who even hated her powers when the Inhuman Elders forced her to take their remaining life energies to prolong her life. She cared for her fellow Inhumans and guided them as best she could, especially after they underwent Terrigenesis.

Alas, her longevity caught the attention of a depraved scientist, who dissected her, butchered her, experimented on her, and took everything he could from her to reverse his own age and then left what was left of her to die. Jiaying's husband, Calvin, found her and "put her back together". But the horror she underwent forever changed Jiaying, scarring her in mind as well as body, as she no longer held her powers in contempt, and instead embraced them, relishing them, and came to view Inhumans as greater and more valued than regular humans, and dismissed her husband without a shred of gratitude despite everything he'd done for her.

She deliberately instigated a war between her people and S.H.I.E.L.D. and had no qualms killing as many as she could to create more Inhumans. As her plans began to fall apart, she turned her dangerous powers upon her own daughter, saying her powers, not her own child, were her gift.

Abilities

  • Superhuman Longevity: Retains youthful appearance for several decades.
  • Accelerated Healing: She was able to come back to life with just some scars, when most of her internal organs were removed due to surgery, after her husband stitched her body back together.
  • Life Force Absorption: Jiaying had the ability to drain the life energy from a victim when placing her hands on their head. This has shown to increase the potency of her healing factor.
