Gemma Teller has been connected to SAMCRO all her adult life, first married to John Thomas "JT" Teller when he was president and now to current president Clay Morrow. There is reason to believe her relationship with Clay began before JT was hit and killed by a semi in 1993. Gemma is a classic "old lady" in the club and mostly knows her place outside of club business; or at least the need to appear she is not involved with club business. She is also a true mama bear when it comes to protecting Jax, often to his annoyance. She has a habit of treating Jax's love interests poorly. She doesn't hesitate to insinuate herself into situations if she feels her family is threatened. She sees Jax becoming president of the club as his birthright. She is cunning, ruthless, and fierce and has incredible inner strength in the face of tragedy, violence, and threats. She is not to be trifled with.

In addition to her husbands, Gemma has a long-standing platonic relationship with the chief of police Wayne Unser, which she doesn't hesitate to exploit if she needs something. She is best friends with Luann, who is involved in the porn industry and was her Maid of Honor in her wedding to JT.

Background: Gemma was born circa 1957 and is a native of Charming, California. She met John Teller, a Vietnam War veteran and founder of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, in 1978, after leaving home in 1975 and became pregnant two months later. Her son Jackson "Jax" Teller was born in 1978 and his brother Thomas was born in 1984, though he later died of a congenital heart defect when he was six. Gemma bears a scar on her chest from heart surgery and passed the defect on to Jax and his son, Abel. After John was hit by a semi-truck and died in 1993, she married John's friend Clay Morrow. She is of Irish and Russian Jewish (mother) descent.
