Name:Emily Michelle Cole
Birthdate:Mar 13
Emily Michelle Cole would have been the only child of a single mother who worked hard and played harder most of Emily's growing up years in Tampa, Florida if not for the fact that she came as a package deal with twin brother, Lincoln. Emily tried weed and booze for the first time at thirteen, with her mother, but despite the fact that she wasn't the most responsible parent, there was no doubt that her mom loved her kids. She worked herself to the bone to try and provide for the twins, and partying was the one thing she did for herself to try and relieve some of the stress. Miraculously, she never got pregnant again, leaving Emily and Linc her only children. She was very close to Emily, who was treated much more like a friend than a daughter, while Linc tended to be more of a handful.

Emily loved to party -- still does to this day -- but there came a point where she knew that she didn't want her life to just be a string of workdays punctuated by booze fuelled parties like her mother's. She wanted a life of substance... a life that meant something and helped people along the way. So she became the adult in her family, while her mom continued to live like a teenager. She committed to her studies and developed close friendships with people her own age, determined to live as normal a life as possible through high school and college until she could graduate with a degree and make decent money.

It was her senior year of high school that would ultimately set her on the pathway to her future career, though in the beginning, it wasn't something she really expected. Emily was always an out and proud lesbian, never feeling the need to be closeted or try dating guys. She loved dating and sleeping with girls, something that started when she was fifteen, and something that led to her having quite a few friends who, like her, fell under the LGBTQ umbrella of all kinds. Her best friend in high school was a gay guy named Drew, who was firmy closeted due to his very conservative family. When he finally came out at the age of 17, his family disowned him, and with her mother's blessing, Emily had him come to live with them. It was one night walking home from the corner store that Drew's uncle lured him into his car, assuring him that things were okay and his family wanted to see him, before driving off and raping him, cruelly asking him if he still wanted dick after the trauma to his body. He dumped Drew far from Emily's home, but luckily, didn't take his cell phone, and Emily was able to find him and get him to a hospital.

It was an experience that would always stick with her, even when she went away to college in New York and Drew stayed behind, finally dealing with the issues that remained after the abuse he received, and starting a relationship with a really good guy who cared for him and understood the difficulties associated with his past. Emily still keeps in touch with Drew as much as she can, but her life moved forward in a far different way than she ever expected.

While in college in New York, her apartment was robbed, and the cop who came that night to investigate was Clint Chevalier. The two of them hit it right off, and Emily did a little investigating of her own and ended up providing valuable information that helped Clint and his partner, Angela find the person who'd robbed her.

She and Clint continued to be friends while Emily finished school and Clint left the force to start his own business as a private investigator. And when the work got to be too much, knowing Emily's skills of observation and deduction, Clint brought her on board to be his partner in (solving) crime. The pair of them are legally married, though there's no sexual relationship to speak of, Emily being a gold star lesbian, and have travelled far and wide, usually investigating sexual crimes, something that won Emily over from the start with the memory of what Drew's uncle had done to him. They've just returned from a year long jaunt overseas, and Emily's looking forward to a bit of relaxation before they're back at it again.
