Abandoned at birth, his father left him because of his red on black eyes. He was stolen from a New Orleans orphanage by the Thieves Guild who trained him to become a thief. He was taken in by Antiquairy, a so called 'collector' of children or in other words he was a pedophile. However the leader of the thieves guild did not like Remy being in the care of Antiqauiry and took care of the child himself.
Gambit was a member of the X-Men throughout the show's run. When the time traveling mutant Bishop arrived form the future, he accused Gambit of assassinating Senator Robert Kelly.The assassin was later revealed to be Mystique and Gambit's name was cleared.
Gambit in X-Men Evolution differed from the comics and previous portrayals by showing him as one of Magneto's Acolytes and he never joined the X-Men during the series entire run. He first appears when Rogue tries to sneak up on him to absorb his powers but is stopped by him as he was prepared. He startles Rogue and she finds him standing there, smiling at her. He takes the time to flirt with her and then hands her a charged King of Hearts and then runs off. He was alter hypnotized by Mesmero, a servant of Apocalypse to break into Angel's house and steal half of a spider-stone. Magneto showed up and threatened Mesmero into releasing him.
Gambit, later on in the show's run kidnapped Rogue to manipulate her into helping him rescue his adoptive father Jean-Luc LeBeau from a rival group of Thieves called the Rippers. After untying his father, he asks him to help him in raiding the Rippers Mansion to which Remy replies "You don' need me for that". In reality his father did require his powers but not him. Gambit replies to him saying " I was right, nothing has changed" and walked away. He then gives Rogue a Queen of Hearts to which he referred as his "lucky lady", inferring that he had some feelings for her.
