Bridget is one of seven children, five boys and two girls. She is the second oldest child in her family. Her oldest brother was murdered by the Bowery Boys. Bridget loves drinking, violence and explosions. She grew up in New York and after her brother’s death she joined the Dead Rabbits, an American-Irish gang infamous for a series of bloody gang wars in and around the Five Points district of New York. Bridget’s penchant for violence and talent for building bombs was useful to the Dead Rabbits. She is skillful at building “Flash Bangs”, an explosive comprised of sawdust with a small amount of gunpowder that resembles the sight and sound of a large bomb but without the destructive capability. She was forced to leave New York after she she killed Bill “The Butcher” Poole. She set off a chain of Flash Bangs on the streets around Bill Poole’s business, tricking him into taking cover inside his shop. She had placed three kegs of nails inside his shop, with a stick of dynamite in each keg. The obituary title was “Bill the Butcher gets Nailed”.
