Bio Edit

Little is known about Bunny's earlier life, but it has been famously known that she was hardly any good to her family and herself, and that remains so to this day. She was a chain smoker, drug-user, and drinks in excess. With both her children, Erin and Teddy, already on the streets barely into their teens. Bunny has shown on multiple occasions that she blames Hank Voight for herself and her daughter not being close. Voight and Bunny have shown that they don't like each other and often argue about what is in the best interests of detective Erin Lindsay.

In season 2, Erin left her job and was locked in a downward spiral after Nadia's death. She stayed with Bunny, who encouraged her to stay that way, taking her to parties and letting her back on drugs, despite continuously assuring her that she left that life in season 2. Erin stayed with her until Voight told her that she'd have to cut her ties with Bunny if she wanted to come back to Intelligence in Life is Fluid.

In You Wish, Erin found out again that Bunny had lied to her when she said a man named Jimmy was her real father after Jay secretly ordered a DNA test. Erin told her she was done with her lies and was very upset, smashing everything at a cafe table where she met up with Bunny. Jimmy was outraged when he found out that Bunny had been sending him pictures of Erin for the past 20 years when she wasn't even his daughter, and threw the album on the ground and left.

Bunny was furious when she found out, telling Erin she genuinely thought Jimmy was her father. Jay then told Voight about this and how Erin was blaming him for doing it, and Voight tells Jay that Bunny must've known the truth. Bunny came to see Voight after this, blaming him for taking Erin away from her and saying that it must've been him who ordered the DNA test. Voight doesn't tell her it was Jay and she says that Erin should run a DNA test on him, to which he replies "you wish".
