At age 13, she discovered the secret of her birth origin — she is the biological daughter of the original Ghostface serial killer, Billy Loomis who derives from the original Scream (1996).
Correspondingly, this also makes her the paternal granddaughter of the first copycat Ghostface killer, Nancy Loomis, who appeared in Scream 2 (1997). After her legal father’s abandonment due to her birth origin revelation, she spiraled into a life of drugs and crime.
