After briefly falling under the sway of the shadow-powered lunatic Darkling, Silhouette developed enhanced powers; however, she and Taylor drifted apart, and they broke up after he learned she had secretly maintained ties with Fire's Concrete Dragons, trying to keep them out of trouble. Taylor was further estranged when Silhouette began a torrid love affair with his shady half-brother Bandit, who has long pursued a hateful vendetta against Taylor. Silhouette ultimately quit the Warriors to explore her powers, herself, and her relationship with Bandit, though Bandit has since romanced New Orleans Assassins Guild leader Bella Donna.
In their late teens, Fire and Silhouette were anti-gang vigilantes allied with adventurer Night Thrasher (Dewayne Taylor), who became Silhouette's lover; however, during a bust gone awry, Silhouette was shot by a gangster while Thrasher restrained Fire from attacking an interfering policeman. Blaming Taylor, Fire went into hiding with Silhouette who lost the use of her legs. Fire later rebuilt the Concrete Dragons street gang until Taylor's New Warriors brought him to justice. Silhouette disowned her brother, reconciled with Taylor and joined the New Warriors, who eventually destroyed Tai, the Well and the cult, though not before Tai killed Miyami. Having discovered her true parentage, Silhouette sought a relationship with her father Chord, while Fire and most of the other pact offspring formed the criminal Folding Circle.
