Cynthia Smith spent some time in the Daughters and Sisters shelter.
She ran away from her boyfriend, Richard Judkins, after he nearly tore off her ear while high on crystal-meth.
She was later picked up by Steve Ames while hitchhiking cross-country and wound up in the town of Desperation, Nevada. In an alternate storyline, she works at a grocery store at the end of Poplar Street in Wenworth, Ohio, the setting of The Regulators. She is easily recognized by her tu-tone hair, which is half orange and half green.
