|Seen||Great Balls of Fire, Part 1|
Erma Fairhurst is a Toronto debutante who at twenty-three years of age is sadly considered past her prime. It is believed that she is in attendance at the ball because her family is picking up the cost of the entire event.
Miss Fairhurst was pledged to Rodney Strong, ever since childhood, something both families wanted when they were children, but it isn't the case now. Mr. Strong has no interest in her, especially after Erma was committed to an asylum.
Appearances and Mentions
- Her father had Erma committed ten years ago, in hopes to cure her of her fear of fire.
- He took up smoking when she was a young child. He fell asleep and lit their house on fire. She found the idea of smoking intolerable but her father couldn't not stop, so he sent her to the asylum for the cure.
- Erma is found murdered near the Biltmore Hotel where Rodney Strong and his new wife, Elizabeth, are staying.
