Harriet Suzanne Wilson
Goes by Hetty


DOB: 10th May 1995 (24)

Current Occupation: EMT

Harriet Suzanne Wilson was born on May 10th 1995, to Misty Burgess and John Maxwell Wilson, two Californian artists in their mid 20s who had met, barely a year ago. A passionate couple who's emotions both ran the gamut, at all times, their relationship would barely last beyond Harriet's first birthday. By the time Misty had broken about half the dishes in the kitchen, John had already hightailed it to San Francisco with yet another woman, of barely legal age. This left Harriet, an already unwanted child, in a home with a mother who preferred to drink, smoke and indulge herself in her personal pursuit of her own art.

Harriet grew up in a household mostly run by her two sisters, Nina, and Cody. Both Misty's daughters' from previous teenage trysts (Misty being 16 when Nina was born), they view Harriet in a much different light, with Nina quickly taking on the role of surrogate mother at the age of 11. Although Misty did (or at least, says she did) what she could to provide for her three daughters, the family often found themselves struggling to make ends meet. They moved around California a lot, both so Misty could pursue her own career and to escape angry landlords and creditors. This meant that Harriet never really developed any long-lasting friendships outside Nina and Cody. By the time she'd be enrolled in a new school, they'd already be packing boxes to move somewhere else. Harriet grew up into a quiet child who struggled academically, at every turn, but who finally found an outlet in sports.

When not in school, Harriet spent almost all of her time following Nina, who gave her a love for the outdoors that still lives strongly to this day. It was her older sister who showed her how to start a fire, how to kayak down a rapid and how to fish. By the time Harriet was 13, Nina was taking her along week long hikes along the different US continental and coastal trails. The last trail Nina would take her on would turn out to be the Appalachian Trail, during the summer when Harriet turned 16. That fall, Nina would end up on the receiving end of a mugging gone wrong and get shot for 11$ and her phone.
