When Jellybean was younger, her family, including her older brother Jughead and father FP, would spend a lot of time at the Twilight Drive-In, however, they often could not afford tickets for everyone, so the kids would hide in the trunk until they parked.
After Fred Andrews fired her father and he began drinking heavily, ten-year-old Jellybean and her mother went to live with Jughead and Jellybean's grandparents.
Jellybean was briefly seen in an old photograph of Jughead's when he was leaving the Twilight Drive-In, for the last time. According to Jughead, they would hide in the trunk of their parents' car until parking, as their family was often low on funds, so sneaking into the drive-in was their only option. 
Jughead mentioned that he spoke with Jellybean over the phone. She wanted to be addressed as 'JB', instead of Jellybean because she thought it sounded cooler. He remarked that she's a "ten-year-old who listens to Pink Floyd on vinyl, how much cooler could she get?" Jughead also mentioned that she was helping their mother study for her GED. 
As a child, she was slim and short with medium-length black hair and brown eyes.
