"My power has allowed me to live a long life. I used to think was my greatest gift, but I was wrong. It was her."
―Jiaying to Daisy Johnson[src]

Jiaying was an Inhuman gifted with the power of life force absorption after experiencing Terrigenesis. Jiaying was met by Melinda May and Yo-Yo Rodriguez in 1983, who came to her remote sanctuary Afterlife for help in restoring Rodriguez's Inhuman powers. During this, Afterlife was attacked by HYDRA, when her daughter Kora betrayed her, joining Nathaniel Malick in conquering Afterlife. Jiaying and Gordon then allied themselves with the future S.H.I.E.L.D. to help them stop HYDRA and save her daughter. However, upon discovering Daisy Johnson was her daughter and what she would do to her in the future, Malick killed her with his powers he stole from experimenting on Johnson.

Helping Yo-Yo Rodriguez

"I know you didn't have to help me, so thank you."
"We look out for our community."
Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Jiaying[src]

Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Melinda May appeared in Afterlife uninvited, and were visited by Jiaying. She had Li present Rodriguez with a Diviner to prove her Inhuman status, which Rodriguez did. Rodriguez asked for help with her powers, which were not working. Jiaying ran many physical tests on Rodriguez, and was seen by May forcing Kora back into her room. Jiaying found that Rodriguez's problem was psychological. She told Rodriguez, and suggested that May and Rodriguez meditate, since May had empathic abilities. She gave the two privacy while they worked on Rodriguez's emotional issues.[1]

Attack on Afterlife

"I can't leave my people behind to die. My daughter is still out there."
"She made her choice."
―Jiaying and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Jiaying was notified when Kora burned the face of someone who was guarding her, and Melinda May saw her and Li investigate her bedroom. Jiaying explained to May how dangerous Kora's powers were. Kora later returned along with Nathaniel Malick and many soldiers, who attacked Afterlife. Jiaying tried to reason with Kora and get her to stop the attack, but Kora proceeded to burn Li's face. Jiaying fled along with Gordon, May, and Yo-Yo Rodriguez, and Gordon teleported the group to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Quinjet. Jiaying and Gordon teleported to a safe place, as May gave her instructions about how to find out where and when to meet them to discuss further plans to stop the attack.[1]

"She hurt you. I can't speak to your mother's reasons. But for me, sometimes trying to do the right thing comes out all wrong."
Daisy Johnson and Jiaying[src]
