Orphaned at birth, Remy LeBeau was adopted by the legendary Thieves Guild of New Orleans. To seal a peace pact between the Thieves Guild and their rivals - the Assassins Guild, LeBeau married the rival leader's granddaughter, Bella Donna Boudreaux. Her brother objected to the arranged marriage and challenged LeBeau to a duel. Severely wounding his opponent, LeBeau was forced to flee New Orleans to prevent war between the guilds. Wandering the world, he plied his skills as the master thief known as Gambit.
