Damali Richards was born in New Orleans, to Armand and Sarah Richards. Upon her parents’ untimely demise at the hands of Fallon Nuit, she was thrust into the foster care system and lost to all Guardian teams. Her location and identity was hidden until Marlene Stone, a seer Guardian, discovered her living as a teenage runaway on the streets of Los Angeles, California. Taken under Stone’s wing, the Neteru was taught the ways of being a slayer.
After hearing about the death of Juan Dejesus, Damali visits Carlos in his club to offer her condolences and although annoyed at his blindness and lack of faith, she makes him promise to always keep a cross on him and say a prayer if he finds himself in a situation he can't get out of.
During a hunting trip with Rider, Damali begins to have bloodlust.
After the battle in the tunnels, and seeing Carlos supposedly die, Damali shuts down her third eye.
