With the Wolves

River Marked

  • Jealous of the pack50

Night Broken

  • Christy was well liked by most of the pack. She was just the sort of sweet, helpless homemaker that appealed to a bunch of werewolves with too much testosterone8
  • Christy was Auriele's friend9
  • Didn't like Warren42
  • Mary Jo was Christy's friend42
  • Honey about Christy: “Helpless bitch had the whole pack-Adam included-hopping to her tune. Couldn't mow the lawn, change a tire, or carry her own laundry up the stairs. Even Peter fell for it, and he usually had better sense. She didn't like Warren-I thought at the time she was worried he was going to make a play for Adam, but mostly, I think, he didn’t fall over himself to be her slave. Darryl’s helpless against her, but at least he knows it. All that might not have been too bad, but she played them all off each other. I had my own private celebration when she left Adam.”97
  • Doesn't feel comfortable with the wolves if Adam isn't there107
  • Ben wasn't petting Christy either234

Storm Cursed

  • Christy would cringe from Adam and all of the wolves46

With Mercy

Night Broken

  • Resents that Mercy took her place8
  • Used the bottle of shampoo left in Mercy's bathroom, and it dyed her hair blue338

Fire Touched

  • If Adam wasn’t standing there, Christy and Mercy could come to a meeting of minds. There would be snark and snarling, but in the end they could deal with each other. Mostly, Mercy suspected, because without Adam’s presence to remind Christy that Mercy had won the prize she’d tossed away, she remembered to be afraid of what Mercy might do if Christy made her life too unpleasant. It was a pretty good return for a box of blue dye145
