Height: 5' 6" Hair: Brown
Weight: 120 lbs Eyes: Brown
Appearance: Ivy is a young woman in her early twenties. There is still something of a youthful exuberance about her and her figure. She tends to dress in the latest fashions and has a level of class not often found in some molls. Personality: Ivy is driven by passion, her passion for money and her passion for power. She loves her power over powerful men, though she does seem to concentrate on one or two at a time. Deep down inside though lurks a girl who wants to be loved and not because she made them love her. When she is alone at night she cries herself to sleep over this fact, though when the morning comes she back making schemes with her current boyfriend. She also has a streak of jealousy that rears its ugly head when dealing with any woman she views as a threat.


Ivy is also obsessed over Jake Steele. This gum shoe has been causing her empire much trouble of late. Mr. Steele also suspects that Freddy is not the real head of the syndicate but as of yet doesn’t know who is actually in charge. Also much to Ivy’s chagrin and fascination, her powers doesn’t work on Mr. Steele.

Quote:“Hey Freddy, I think the old man is through and is heading to the big house, I think it is time for you to take charge.†Background: Moving through the craggy foothills on a night that was to be one of worse storms ever, Irene Coulton was looking for a place to keep dry. She had fled earlier from the town of Harrington Junction where she had been a whore at one of the bar. Being a spoiled dove was one thing, being beaten by Frank Stone and his men were another. She could only hope that she could make it far enough that they wouldn’t come looking for one lowly whore like herself.


Spying a cave and ignoring the possibilities of there being wild animals in it, she entered. She took a moment to steady herself in the cool confines of the cave when she noticed a reddish glow. Fear gripped Irene as she pondered the fact that someone else was in the cave other then her. But the warmth of the fire made her decide to move deeper in the cave. It didn’t take her long before she was in a small chamber where in the middle coming up for the earth was a pillar of fire. She was in luck, this was some natural occurrence and not something man made. She hurriedly went toward the fire to warm and dry herself dropping the blanket she has been using as a cloak and tripping into the fire.


Irene rolled out of the fire expecting to be burned but instead found her self transformed though her clothes were burn away. Once again the glow of youth was upon her features. Her teeth had all come back and any scar she had was vanished. She gingerly extended a hand toward the fire and felt pain this time as it burned her hand, but extending it again the hand was healed. Irene didn’t know whether the fire was from God or the devil, all she did know that it gave her a new lease on life.


Next morning covered in her blanket, Irene left the cave and walked right into the arms of Frank Stone. Irene quickly tried to sweet talk, fearing that it had never worked in the past; she was in for a beating, though this time it worked. Frank listened intently to the familiar but unknown girl and decided to do whatever she asked of him and Irene discovered her powers over men.


She quickly became the power behind Frank’s dealings. But time began to go by and while she stayed young, Frank grew old. During this time Irene began an affair with Frank’s right hand man; Joe Pearson. She soon discovered what he wanted in a woman and her appearance gradually changed over a day. No longer was she Irene Coulton but Rose Miles and now she had two slaves. Ordering Frank to kill himself, she was now the power behind Joe Pearson. Since then Irene has changed her face and her men, all the while building her crime empire. Currently she goes by Ivy Wilde and is the power behind Freddy Finelli.

Powers/Tactics: Ivy likes working behind the scene, though you may see her at society event playing her game. If she has to fight she prefers sneak attacks where hopefully she can get the drop on her opponent.Campaign Use: Ivy works best as a mastermind behind the scenes, the real power behind the throne. Player might take down her current boyfriend, but ignore Ivy as just another gangster moll. She plays this part to the hilt. She never says anything during meetings other then non-verbal hints to her current boyfriend. An observant player might catch this though and finally figure out who really is the power in this particular crime empire.G
