"Whatever it takes to survive, whatever it takes to keep my Glory alive."
Conceived in the days of the early Fall, Hope is the daughter of the "history woman", Miss Giddy. Miss Giddy's husband was killed by a biker gang and Miss Giddy was taken, pregnant, as a trophy by their leader. Hope was kept and raised by the gang up until her early teens, growing more beautiful each day.
The Biker gang was defeated by another, greater force, the gang of the Immortan Joe.
Immortan Joe kept Giddy and Hope as Breeders. When the Citadel was founded, Giddy was put in charge of the education of the younger female children and Hope was kept in a breeding program. She failed to produce a son and was eventually given to Immortan Joe's lesser lieutenants. Hope and her mother found their way to the court of the Guardian of Gastown. In the days leading up to the Wasteland Wars, Gastown was infiltrated by Dr. Dementus and his group of saboteurs. Dr. Dementus killed the Guardian of Gastown and took the title for himself. He then became the owner of Hope and Miss Giddy, who went on to become the History Woman. Meanwhile, Hope was impregnated by Dementus. She gave birth to a daughter, Glory.
Much later, Dementus tried to lay siege to the Citadel and was killed by Scabrous Scrotus, one of the Immortan's sons. Hope and Glory were sent back to the Citadel, when their transport came under attack. The two wandered the wasteland for weeks, living off whatever they could find, until they were taken by Thrall Rustlers and ended up in the holding cells of Gutgash.
