"Mia grew up as a boy in a travelling community. She was abused by her brother and her father, but she escaped when she was quite young and lived with a woman, Wendy, for a couple of years. She grew up gay and very feminine and always knowing something was wrong, or different, about her and so eventually she decided to transition to a woman. She ended her relationship with Wendy, ran away and totally isolated herself and ended up getting in trouble with a guy. Basically she killed him. That's what brought her to the attention of Eddie, who recruited her to become a hit woman. When we meet her that's her job. She totally isolates herself from the world and lives on her own. But then she finds out about this family that she inherits courtesy of Wendy and the discovery totally transforms her. She unearths her maternal instincts and she wants to protect and help them. Until she brings her work into the family: as much as they transform her and help bring her out of her shell."
