Biography Edit

Tulip O'Hare was a treasure hunter and thrill seeker. She had history with Jesse Custer who used to be her lover and partner in crime before Jesse decided to become a small town preacher in Annville, Texas.

Tulip got a lead on a valuable map, which resulted in a fight between her and several men in the back of a car. She managed to kill the men as the car drove into a corn field, but knew that there would be more people coming after her. Going to a nearby farmhouse, she employed the aid of two children who assisted her in fashioning a homemade bazooka. She secured the children in the cellar of the barn and used the bazooka to shoot down a helicopter filled with men who were coming to kill her. [1]

Tulip eventually made her way to Annville, where she reconnected with Jesse Custer. She didn't believe for an instant that he preferred the solitary life of a small town minister after the adventures they had shared together. She continuously encouraged him to get back into his old ways, but Jesse always rebuffed her. She then decided to antagonize him by playing various pranks, such as stealing the steering wheel to his truck, showing up to his church so she could mockingly have him baptize her, and even kidnapping him and chaining him to a table.

To earn some more money, she went to a brothel called Toadvine where she played poker against a group of men employed by robber baron Odin Quincannon of Quincannon Meat and Power. [2]

Soon after, Tulip learned about an organization called The Grail.
