Deborah was the daughter of Lise Hampton and Franz. She was born on Mars in September 2258. [1]

Shortly after Deborah's birth, Lise discovered that Franz was having an affair and filed for a divorce. However since the Mars courts were at the time appointed by Earth they were notoriously biased towards Martian born and Franz, being an 'Earth-Natural' gained custody of Deborah and remarried. As of May 2261, Lise had not seen Deborah in over a year and she believed Franz planned on raising her daughter with his new wife without ever telling her about her biological mother. [2]
