Desiree Jones is the mother of Raymond "Piranha" Jones.
- "See, my mother was one of Mama Mabel's hoes. Her best one."
"You sound proud of that."
"Desiree. One of her regulars was a banker. He's big-time, you know. He promised to get her out the life. He fell in love with her hard. But that was bullshit, because he wasn't gonna leave his wife. So my mom just had me, and he stopped calling."
- ―Piranha Jones and Luke Cage
