Zoe was born on the Caribbean island of Dolphin Bay.  Her parents were Jason and Marie Aster, originally from Chicago, who settled in Dolphin Bay for Jason's job with a fishing company.  In 1997, when Zoe was just three years old, she was orphaned when her parents' speedboat ran aground on a reef and exploded.  Zoe stayed in Dolphin Bay, and was adopted by her paternal grandmother, Rose Aster.  Zoe grew up on the island, developing a rebellious nature and often getting into trouble with both school authorities and the law.  Her grandmother also became increasingly burdened with disease.  In 2011, Rose Aster developed a new form of cancer and had to travel to Miami for treatment.  Zoe took a job renting snorkeling gear to tourists to try to pay for the treatment, but had trouble making ends meet.  That's when she met Dominic Payne, a disgraced CIA agent who also lived in Dolphin Bay.  Payne offered to pay for her grandmother's treatment if Zoe went undercover at a boarding school in upstate New York, and lured a teenaged boy, Jack Kole, back to Dolphin Bay.  Zoe, wanting the money, agreed to Payne's proposal unquestioningly.
