(Quake: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary Special#1 (fb) - BTS) - An Inhuman with mysterious origins and motivations, Jiaying somehow knew Quake when she was a baby. Years later, she ended up at a terrorist training camp along with other Inhumans, including children, as it was run by A.I.M. and H.A.M.M.E.R.
(Quake: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary Special#1) - S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Quake, and the Avengers attacked the camp. As the heroes battled a super-strong Inhuman, Quake found Jiaying seeking to escape through a teleporter. Jiaying revealed she knew Quake, then asked her to let her escape with the children so that S.H.I.E.L.D. couldn't use them as weapons, and Quake agreed, letting Jiaying escape.

In this comic, the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Quake find a few Inhumans working with A.I.M. and H.A.M.M.E.R., and they fight with one of the Inhumans. Quake finds Jiaying at a teleporter trying to get away with a group of innocent children. Jiaying convinces Quake to let her go. While it is possible that Jiaying was a victim and unwilling captive of A.I.M., there seems to be some nuance to the story that shows she was actually working with them. It may be possible that she is a villain and has some sort of psychic, or influencing, powers that convinced Quake to let her go. While her motivations remain unrevealed, there is clearly more to Jiaying's story to be revealed. For the writing of this profile, I've assumed that Jiaying is working with the villains for the purpose of this profile.
In the Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show, Jiaying is an Asian woman (played by Dichen Lachman) who runs a secret Inhuman society. In the show, Jiaying's powers are to live an extremely long life, though she sometimes has to drain the lives of others to maintain it. She is the mother of Quake, the main character of the show, after having a tryst with Mr. Hyde. In the comics, Quake has a different mother, Jennifer Kim Johnson, as seen in S.H.I.E.L.D. III#7.

Jiaying has no known connections to:
(Quake: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary Special#1) - A super-strong Inhuman working with A.I.M. and H.A.M.M.E.R. helped battle S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. As he sparred with Captain America, the Inhuman was hit with a vibratory field from Quake, which caused him to vomit all over Captain America. They realized the Inhuman's stomach was located where a normal human heart would be.
