Felicia is an Aztec princess and the descendant of Emperor Maximillian of Austria. Emperor Maximillian migrated to the Americas, eventually ruling over the Aztec empire in Mesoamerica with his Empress Carlotta.

Felicia and other members of the Ramirez family are descended from Emperor Maximillian and his Aztec-Mexican mistress. Felicia discovered her heritage after her great-grandmother Amelia gave her an Aztec family heirloom in the form of a ring that had been passed down from daughter to daughter in their family.

Right after Felicia received the ring, armed men attacked their family home in Texas, Hacienda Ramirez, in search of the ring and other pieces of their family treasure. Felicia was forced to go on the run eventually landing in Port Charles, New York.

After meeting Frisco Jones, Felicia went on several adventures with him in search of reclaiming the treasure. Through these adventures, Felicia was shown to understand and speak Spanish. Eventually with the help of Frisco, Robert, Sean, Anna, Holly, Luke and Laura, Felicia was able to reclaim her family's treasure.


Felicia arrived in Port Charles in 1984, dressed as a boy and intent on getting back an Aztec heirloom, in the form of a ring that Frisco Jones had purchased years earlier. Felicia claimed the ring as hers and had every intention of getting her property back. While attempting to get her ring back, Felicia quickly attracted Frisco and the two started to fall in love. But Felicia was engaged to the treacherous Peter Harrell and therefore couldn't take her relationship with Frisco any further at the time.

After the ring dilemma was settled, Frisco and Felicia traveled to Mexico with Robert Scorpio and his wife Holly Sutton in search of a treasure. Along the way, Felicia also attracted the attention of Sean Donely, but after she turned him down, he became more of a father figure to her and nicknamed her "princess."

A year later, Felicia became entangled in another adventure and this one took place in the Asian Quarter. While there, she befriended Jade Soong, the granddaughter of the evil villain Mr. Wu and helped Robert and Anna Devane, with their young daughter Robin Scorpio. She also helped Frisco and Sean stop Mr. Wu's reign of terror and bring him down. After the Asian Quarter adventure, Frisco and Felicia progressed in their relationship and began to date more steadily.

Together they moved into a small studio apartment at Bobbie Spencer's Brownstone. After coming to terms with his chosen occupation, Frisco and Felicia are finally married in 1986. They married at the Brownstone and since Frisco was in the police academy and could not travel away, Sean gifted them with a private honeymoon in his penthouse.


Frisco and Felicia Jones.

In 1988, Frisco was presumably killed while undercover for the WSB and after a period of mourning, Felicia attempted to move on and married Lucy Coe's cousin Colton Shore. It turns out that Colton had been involuntarily involved in the attack that left Frisco for dead and in 1989, Frisco turned up alive and well just in time to see Felicia marrying the man who tried to kill him in the city's park. Felicia was unable to chose between Frisco and Colton. After getting into an accident, she developed amnesia and befriended Colton's younger brother Decker Moss. Felicia soon realizes that Frisco is the one for her and she reunites with her lover.

In 1990, they are once again married in a small wedding at Sean's penthouse. After their wedding the two go to Europe on what Felicia thinks is a music tour, but in actuality it was really Frisco on secret assignment for the WSB again. While there, Felicia is kidnapped by ex-DVX boss Cesar Faison, but Frisco and Sean rescue her and the three of them return to Port Charles.

Later, after accidently overhearing Frisco talking with a WSB agent about rejoining, Felicia, who has just learned that she's pregnant, runs away to her grandmother's hacienda in Texas.

Mac and Felicia then went on the run together and the two eventually fell in love. Mac and Felicia almost married in 1994, but the wedding is called off after Ryan crashes the ceremony with a bomb. After dealing with Ryan, Mac and Felicia once again tried to make it down the aisle, but before they got the chance, Maxie got sick with Kawasaki syndrome.
