History[edit | edit source]
Rebecca "Becky" Saunders is a social worker in London. She met Butcher on a subway train, and the two started dating not long after. Becky was able to temper a lot of Butcher's violent tendencies, and it is because of her that he quit drinking and getting into fights. The two eventually married and went on honeymoon to Miami, where they encountered the Seven on a public tour. That night, while Billy was out on a walk, Becky was raped by Black Noir (disguised as Homelander). Although she tried to conceal what had happened from Billy, she grew more and more emotionally distant due to her trauma.
Months later, Becky died when she prematurely gave birth to a super-powered fetus, who apparently ripped itself out of her womb. The fetus tried to kill Billy with its laser-sight, forcing him to beat it to death with a lampstand. Her death is the primary motivating factor for Butcher in his crusade against Supes, as well as the reason for his burning hatred towards Homelander.
