Tracy Quartermaine, the spoiled brat of the clan, called a halt to her globe trotting, and came back to Port Charles when she ran short of money.
Upon discovering that her sister-in-law, Monica, was pregnant, Tracy was irate, knowing that the child would be the heir-apparent to the Quartermaine fortune. Tracy wanted her son, Ned, to hold that status, and immediately set out to prove that the child was not Alan's. At the same time, Edward informed Tracy that she would receive no more family funds unless she married.
Strongly attracted to Assistant District Attorney, Mitch Williams, Tracy lured him into marriage although he was up to his eyes in mob dealings. He was also seeing another woman, and their relationship continued even after he married Tracy. When she discovered the two in bed together, their short marriage came to an end.
Tracy believed that baby, AJ, belonged to Rick Webber, but was unable to prove it. When she initiated a paternity suit to try to prove that the child was not her brother's, her father, who wanted AJ as heir, wrote Tracy out of his will. While signing the document, he had a heart-attack and begged her for his medication. She withheld it, agreeing to give it to him, only if he altered the papers. Edward jumped to his feet, proclaimed his attack had been a test, and Tracy had failed.
Tracy's continued underhanded dealings affected everyone, even her son, Ned, as she fought to have him ousted from the family business. She even drove away his fiance by revealing that he and Monica had had an affair. When Alan and Monica's marriage failed, and Alan married, Lucy Coe, Tracy did every thing in her power to destroy them, as well.
Her own marriage to Paul Hornsby was a sham. He was being threatened by the Cartel and ordered to marry Tracy as a means to access the Quartermaine fortune, although he loved someone else. It wasn't long after their marriage that it became apparent to Tracy that Jenny Eckert was the woman he preferred, but Tracy refused to give him up. They bonded when she announced that she was pregnant with his child, and Dillon was born, premature but healthy.
The stability of the marriage faltered, and Tracy did everything in her power to undermine Jenny's character. Tracy accidentally hit Jenny with a car, and thinking her dead, fled the scene. Jenny didn't die, but didn't divulge who hit her. She used the information to blackmail Tracy into divorcing Paul. Tracy took Dillon and left Port Charles.
Tracy returned to Port Charles some years later with her teenage son, and despite her father's protest, she was allowed by her mother, Lila, to stay. Tracy promised to be on her best behavior, but it wasn't long before she was up to her old tricks, trying to extort money from Skye by revealing that she wasn't a true Quartermaine. Skye upset her plan when she made the announcement herself. Tracy stayed just long enough to dump Dillon on her family.
She returned again, feeling some degree of guilt at having left Dillon behind, but the real reason was the search for the infamous Dead Man's Hand, but her plans for the future were thwarted when she discovered that Luke Spencer held the only license allowing a casino in Port Charles. She turned her attention back to taking over ELQ, and breaking up son Dillon from his girlfriend, Georgie. Her continued scheming and plotting for wealth eventually led her to pair in marriage with Luke Spencer. In the beginning, the joining was purely financial, but passing time brought growing emotions, and when Luke initiated the administering of a medication that returned Laura from her catatonic state, Tracy had to stand by and watch them exchange mock wedding vows before Laura slipped away again.
Over the years, Tracy was sent to a mental institution when she began seeing her deceased brother Alan. She was eventually let out help her stepdaughter Lulu, who she had grown close to. She also continued to put up with Luke's shenanigans and even went on a few adventures with him.
Laura eventually snapped out of her catatonic state for good, but Luke chose to stay with Tracy. However, it eventually came out that the two weren't really married, which Luke knew about. After some time and much pleading, Tracy agreed to marry Luke for real, but only if he would sign a prenup. He did, but it was unclear if he signed his real name or not. It didn't matter though because Tracy believed he loved her so she burned it in the fire.
After Luke was involved in a hit and run accident that killed Lucky's son Jake, Luke hit rock bottom. The family staged an intervention, but Luke insisted he wasn't an alcoholic. Tracy shut him out until he agreed to go to rehab. He eventually complied, but once he checked himself into Shadybrook, he promptly left town.
Tracy turned her attention toward work, but then Skye returned to Port Charles. Skye brought up Tracy's past with Gino Soleito, which she was seemingly using to blackmail her with on Anthony Zacchara's behalf. After Skye left, Anthony pursued Tracy using his leverage regarding Gino over her. Tracy fended him off and eventually confessed to Edward what she had done. Edward already knew.
Anthony remained undeterred and proposed to Tracy. She refused but he still had leverage. It seems the money Tracy took from the Soleito family was meant for him, so if Tracy married him, he would forgive her the money she actually owed him. He also threatened to turn her in to the FCC. Tracy sort of accepted his proposal, but when she tried to get out of the wedding, Anthony kidnapped her and brought her to a boat where she had no place to run.
Despite Luke showing up, Tracy was forced to marry Anthony.

Bobbie meets Tracy at Kelly's. She's had no luck tracking down Luke. Tracy explains that she found Patricia. She's dead. Bobbie breaks into tears until Tracy tells her about her niece. Valerie gave them misleading information about Pat's burial place. Bobbie googles around and discovers that Oakhill is a convalescent home. She calls them up.
Tracy and Bobbie get to Oakhill. When they walk into Patricia's room, Luke is waiting with his gun out.
At Valerie’s place, Lulu and Tracy are about to leave when they hear a noise inside her apartment. Tracy asks if someone is in there. Valerie says it’s just her cat and she once again tries to get rid of them, but they won’t leave. Lulu asks where her mother is buried as her aunt Bobbie will want to know, so Valerie tells her at Oak Hill Cemetery. Lulu and Tracy finally leave and Luke emerges from the shadows. Valerie tells Uncle Luke to get going and forget they are related because she plans to. Luke tells her that he’s not going anywhere and waves a gun around. Valerie says she did everything he asked, but he says she didn’t tell him where his sister is. She says her mother is dead, but he doesn’t believe her and is not going anywhere until she tells him where Patricia is.
Tracy and Lulu head to a diner for lunch and discuss Valerie, Pat and how they are no closer to the truth. Tracy believes something was going on in that apartment that Valerie didn’t want them to know about. She thinks that Valerie was way too eager to get rid of them, but Lulu feels they sprung a lot on her. Tracy doesn't believe she had a cat, there was no evidence of one, and that the noise was someone else. Lulu realizes Tracy believes she may have Patricia in there, and if that's true she wonders why Valerie would hide her from them.
