Background[]

Cherie was one of Frenchie's best friends alongside Jay. The three would hang out together, getting high and committing crimes. One day in 2012, Frenchie planned for them to rob a bank as the two ecstatically agreed. Despite them defeating the Supes that showed up to stop them, the three were arrested and detained by the CIA. Grace Mallory was impressed by Frenchie's ingenuity against the Supes and attempted to recruit him. When he refused, she threatened to send Cherie and Jay to ADX Florence, a maximum security prison, if Frenchie didn't come work for her. Frenchie agreed and Frenchie slowly grew distant from his friends.

By 2015, Frenchie was a full member of The Boys. While Frenchie was following Lamplighter, Cherie was getting high with Jay, however Jay started to overdose on an unknown substance. In a panic, Cherie called Frenchie to come help him. Frenchie arrived and saved Jay's life, but he couldn't stay for long as he needed to resume his mission. Cherie pleaded with him to stay with Jay, but Frenchie left in hurry, leaving Cherie to guard over Jay.

After that, Jay never saw Frenchie again and died months later of another overdose, straining Frenchie and Cherie's relationship further.

By the present day (2019), Cherie is still working with Frenchie but their relationship has devolved into a business partnership, a far cry from their passionate friendship in the past. When Frenchie is approached by Butcher to kill Translucent, Cherie looks over their hideout. When Homelander begins searching for Translucent, Frenchie orders Cherie to cause a distraction by blowing up their hide-out.

At some point, Cherie falls back into her bad habits and goes to Little Nina for a job. While working for her, Cherie double-crosses Nina and steals 11 kilos of her drugs. Fearing Nina's wrath, Cherie secretly meets with Frenchie to get passports to relocate. She pleads with him to leave with her and go some place warm. Frenchie considers it, but refuses, knowing Nina, Cherie won't be safe until he clears her debt.

Cherie reappears again having been captured by Nina alongside Frenchie and Kimiko. Nina has the two women handcuffed to chairs as she drags a naked Frenchie out in front of them. Nina then demands Frenchie to pick which of the girls will live while the other will die. Before Frenchie makes a choice, Kimiko frees herself and fights Nina's guards. Nina attempts to grab a nearby gun but Cherie frees herself and attacks Nina. While they're successful in fending off Nina's guards, Nina managed to slip away.
