Emery is a 23-year-old woman who joins Lauren’s group on the road. She is half African-American, half Japanese, and was formerly married to a Mexican man, with whom she has three children: Tori and two unnamed boys. The family lived in debt slavery, and one day Emery’s sons were taken away—presumably sold into prostitution. Like Lauren, Emery and Tori have hyperempathy, and are extremely skittish based on their traumatic past. Emery becomes close to Grayson, who was also formerly enslaved.
