(Uncanny X-Men I#450 (fb) - BTS) - Jade was the daughter of North Jersey mafia boss Domenic "Don" Parisi.

(Uncanny X-Men I#451 (fb) - BTS) - Jade met and fell in love with Matthew, a mutant who owned Double Helix, a restaurant in the New York City mutant neighborhood known as District X.

(Uncanny X-Men I#450 - BTS) - Looking to expand their territory, the Bacchae decided to stake their claim on District X. In order to warn off other crime syndicates, they captured Jade's boyfriend, specifically sending a signal to the Parisi family.

(Uncanny X-Men I#450) - Jade was attacked by a group of mutant haters, who considered her a race traitor and wanted to teach the girl a lesson for dating a mutant. Before the mutant bashers could get to her, X-23 (Laura Kinney) came to her rescue and ended up killing Jade's attackers. The killings however, got the attention of X.S.E. officers Storm and Wolverine who, hoping to avoid another media scandal, decided to take up the investigation themselves. They looked for a mutant with two claws (as X-23's claws had left cut marks on the bodies).

(Uncanny X-Men I#451 - BTS) - In the X.S.E.'s pursuit of X-23 they had also come into contact with the Bacchae. After an extensive battle they discovered Matthew was their prisoner. At around the same time, X-23's involvement in the disappearance of Jade was discovered and, following a brief fight with Parisi's superstrong bodyguard Geech, Nightcrawler used his teleportation power to retrieve Jade from her hiding place, reuniting her with her lover.

(Uncanny X-Men I#451) - Sometime later, X.S.E.'s Sage witnessed how Jade introduced her father to Matthew.

Jade & Domenic Parisi has no known connections to

Domenic "Don" Parisi

Domenic Parisi was a North Jersey mafia boss. After his daughter's disappearance, Domenic and his men showed up at District X's city morgue. Learning the murderer was a mutant, he told Tony, one of his bodyguards, to contact the super strong mob enforcer Geech to find the mutant. After the issue was resolved, Domenic was introduced to her daughter's boyfriend Matthew. Not too thrilled about the relationship, Domenic accepted the reality of the situation.

Matthew was a mutant who worked as a chef at his own District X restaurant the Double Helix. His relationship with Jade, daughter of North Jersey's mob boss Domenic Parisi, caused him to be a target for the Bacchae, who were looking to send Parisi a message. The Bacchae kidnapped Matthew, but he was eventually saved by the X.S.E.. After a short battle with the superstrong mob enforcer Geech he was reunited with his girlfriend. When the dust settled, Jade finally, properly introduced Matthew to her father. Matthew was identified as a mutant, though his powers remain unrevealed.

Carl was X.S.E. agent Bishop's informant in the mutant town of District X. After the disappearance of Jade Parisi, the X.S.E. interrogated Carl about the murders. Carl told them Parisi had been coming to mutant town regularly. Aside from his purple skin and demonic appearance it's unknown if he has additional powers.

District X's medical examiner

The medical examiner worked at the city morgue, in the District X division. After X-23 killed four of the men who threatened Jade Parisi, he examined their bodies. The examiner showed the X.S.E. officers traces the attacker had left on the bodies. His mutation led to him growing four arms that offered him superhuman strength (allowing to easily lift a car's motorblock with one hand). In addition to that, his eyes acted like a makeshift MRI machine. He can generate projections of the human body, rendering each layer of skin invisible which allows him to probe every part of the body.
