Name: Mary Amelia 'Amy' Howlett
Age: 20
Height: 5'8"
Current Location: The Crystal Palace Saloon, Tombstone, Arizona Territory.


Amy was born in Tucson, Arizona, in 1862. Her father was a miner, who left town for prospecting and never returned. When their mother died of consumption, Amy and her sisters were taken in by their aunt, a madam of a popular brothel down town. The eldest, Amy was put to work immediately to earn her keep - she was fourteen - and her younger sisters followed in time.

Amy showed herself to be a gifted whore - she was determined and tenacious, and robust enough to survive the demands of her position. It was no surprise to her sisters when she was plucked from their over-ripened bough by a gentleman of some swagger from San Francisco - a native Frenchman with business interests in the West.

She was packed up and moved to San Francisco, installed her in her own stylish house, and preened her to be a woman fit for Monsieur's sensibilities. She was lavished with his wealth, and privileged with his time.

But when Monsieur tired of this arrangement, she found herself politely evicted from the home she had assumed would be hers in perpetuity, and left to fend for herself once more. She took a brave step, and opted to head for the boom towns to the East, where even whores could get fat off their earnings. She came to Tombstone, eager to forget her past.





The name 'Amy Howlett' comes from a minor character in Michel Faber's novel The Crimson Petal and the White. The character herself is entirely different - with the sole exception of being a prostitute.
