Jenni Graves was born to Bruce and Luna Graves on June 6th, 1899 in New York. Jenni's father, Bruce Graves was the head of a railroad company called Graves Railways. Jenni's mother, Luna was Bruce's secretary. Jenni's older brother, Jeremiah or J.R. (who was 10 when Jenni was born) occasionally worked on the railroad. Bruce was a head gangster who was against the Prohibition Act and acted as a supplier to speakeasies such as Lackadaisy and Marigold. Bruce was one of the few mobsters who didn't kill people. He had them beat up or kidnapped but never killed. One night, a gang of gangsters broke into the Graves family's home. Bruce immediately ran to get his daughter from her room but a gangster found him. Jenni hid under her bed and watched as her father was shot and killed. She rushes to his aid but is nearly shot as well but Luna kills the gangster and escapes with Jenni. The two women go to the police but the only thing left in the house was Bruce's body. The police arrested Luna as a suspect for her husband's death, despite Jenni's objections. Luna dies 6 weeks later of heartbreak and Jenni is put into an orphanage. J.R. (who was in college at the time), had to quit school to run his father's company. He tried getting custody over Jenni but wasn't old enough. At some point during her time in the orphanage, Jenni met a young cheetah named Marley Dash and eventually befriended and escaped the orphanage with her. Jenni worked as a bookkeeper at the local library where she educated herself. At the age of 18, Jenni quit her job and started practicing marksmanship and other skills she would need in the future. As an adult, she was ready to hunt down her father's killer. Jenni and Marley began working together to take down mafias around the world. Jenni and Marley worked as assassins for hire for several mobsters before Jenni is hired as a trigger person for Marigold. Jenni originally had planned to take down Lackadaisy but sent Marley in as a spy instead.
Jenni is named after my late cousin, Jenny who died of a stroke a few years ago.
Jenni tends to mirror the personality of those she's around as to earn their trust. However, Graves is shown to have emotion and sympathy for those who seem weaker than her such as young children or unarmed civilians. She is also keen on helping those who are injured, even a target.
Jenni is a black footed cat, the deadliest feline on earth due to having a highly successful hunting rate. A fitting species for Jenni.
Jenni's father's railroad tracks are built on a cemetery, giving them their last names: Graves.
Jenni and Mordecai appear to have similar childhoods as they both grew up in New York, both worked as a bookkeeper, both worked and killed mobsters at young ages.
Jenni's sexual orientation is asexual.
Jenni is a non-smoker.
Graves states she hates the taste of alcohol.
She also states she's allergic to flowers but this can't be true as seen having no reaction to the flowers the rest of the members of Marigold wears. These might be paper flowers.
A theory suggests Jenni had killed Atlas May, a possible former employer. However, if this were true, Mordecai would have recognized her as a former member. However, Jenni could have assassinated him under the orders of another employer.
It's strongly suggested Jenni has PTSD of her father's death.
Jenni is ambidextrous
Jenni doesn't make any attempts to conceal her true identity.
Jenni is keen on using stealth to gain an advantage over her targets. In a training seminar with Mordecai, Serafine, and Nico, Jenni disables the lighting system to eliminate the possibility of her targets seeing her shadow. Using her black assassin clothing and keen night vision, Jenni is able to stalk and disarm her targets.
Jenni's kill method: She is hired by her target, mirrors the personality of her colleagues to win their trust, quickly kills the target, types and sends a letter of recommendation to her next target, and quits her current job shortly after.
Jenni's name has 2 references to her being a serial killer before she reveals her profession
Jenni's last name is Graves, so that's already a big give away. In universe, the Graves family owns and operates a railway built on top of a cemetery, giving them their name.
Jenni's middle name is Penelope. Penelope Graves is the name of a target from Hitman 2.
