Early Life

Mariah Dillard (Earth-199999) from Marvel's Luke Cage Season 2 2 001.jpg

Mariah Stokes lived under the care of her grandmother Mama Mabel Stokes and uncle Peter Stokes. Alongside witnessing her cousin Cornell Stokes become trained into operating the family business of crime, she was nurtured to move away from the life. Mariah was also a victim of rape, Peter visiting her bedroom at night. After his death, she was forced to carry out the pregnancy and birthed Matilda Maybelline Stokes, who was raised by Mama Mabel before being adopted by the Johnsons.

Next to studying in political sciences and moving into politics, Mariah met and married Jackson Dillard, taking his name.[1][2][3]
