Colleen Wing is the daughter of Professor Lee Wing, a professor of Oriental studies at New York's Columbia University. Her mother's name is unknown, and she was apparently killed by an unknown assailant while Colleen was still a child.
Colleen grew up in the mountains of northern Honshu in Japan, where she was raised by her grandfather, Kenji Ozawa. Kenji's other children died in World War II. Kenji trained his only grandchild in the arts of the samurai, which his own ancestors had been in the time of the daimyo. Kenji had also been a member of Japan's secret service.
Colleen made her home in New York City where her father lived. Caught in the midst of a gun battle on Manhattan's West Side, she was saved from being killed by police officer Misty Knight, who soon became her best friend. After Misty lost her arm, Colleen encouraged Knight to rise above her depression and return to an active role in life. Knight's right arm was replaced with a bionic steel arm.
Colleen and Misty formed a partnership as private investigators and called their firm Nightwing Restorations, Ltd. Due to Wing's samurai training and both partners' expertise in the martial arts, they have been dubbed "the Daughters of the Dragon."
