Like the other Lavery siblings, Erin grew up fearful of her father, Patrick
Curry. Luckily, the boys, Braden, Ryan and Jonathan, were able to defend
her from his physical abuse. One by one, the Lavery’s left their
home. Erin moved to Nova Scotia and became an artist.
Erin only stayed in contact with Jonathan. One night, Jonathan called
Erin in distress. Ryan had just tried to kill him. Erin hid Jonathan in
her Canadian cabin.
Ryan made his way to Canada. Erin was afraid that he was back to hurt
Jonathan. Ryan had a different story. Jonathan was wanted in Pine Valley
for three murders and poisoning his wife, Greenlee Lavery. Erin recognized
something was wrong with Jonathan. After he fell into a seizure, the Laverys
took him to the hospital. Jonathan was diagnosed with a brain tumor responsible
for his erratic behavior. After a successful surgery to remove the growth,
Jonathan regressed to the state of mind of a child.
Ryan invited Erin and Jonathan to come home with him to Pine Valley. Upon
their arrival, a string of strange crimes plagued the small town. Jonathan
was considered the primary suspect. Erin knew her brother did not have
the state of mind to commit the crimes. She was able to convince private
investigator Aidan Devane to help her exonerate Jonathan.
Erin fell in love with Aidan. This was a huge step for Erin, who never
let a man into her life after witnessing her own parent’s abusive
relationship. She gave her virginity to Aidan.
Erin began working at the Miranda Montgomery Women’s Center with
victims of abuse. Jamal Cudahy approached Erin for help with a special
case. He was working with an underground movement to remove women from
high risk abuse situations. Erin could not tell anyone about what she
was doing, so she broke up with Aidan. She disguised the runaway, Annie
McDermott, as her college friend and let her stay in Ryan’s Penthouse.
She faked a relationship with Jamal to keep Aidan away.
Erin also began working at FUSION. Erin was excited that one of her musical
idols, Zarf, had signed on for the newest product campaign. That happiness
was short-lived when FUSION partner Simone Torres was found dead. Erin
would suffer a similar fate. The two women where the first victim of the
Satin Slayer: Alexander Cambias.
