Character HistoryEdit


Kirsty wasn't keen on moving in to Frank Cotton's house with her father and her step-mother. She suspected something was wrong when Julia brought in a man and she saw what was going on. She found out that her father was in danger, and her first encounter with the cenobites, she made a deal with them. She'd give them to Frank if they left her alone. She ran home to try and warn her father, but it was too late. So she lured Frank upstairs and he was torn apart. The cenobites weren't keen on just taking Frank, so they tried to get Kirsty as well, but Kirsty managed to send them to hell using the puzzle box.

Hellbound: Hellraiser IIEdit

She was sent to the Channard Institute by her boyfriend Steve and she was in more danger because Dr. Channard was a collector of the puzzle boxes and she wanted to try and find her father in hell. So she befriended a doctor named Kyle McRae and went on the search for her missing father. He wasn't able to be found in hell. Dr Channard tricks a patient named Tiffany into opening the box and releasing the Cenobites. Kirsty finds information about Pinhead, and gives him a photo of when he was human. The cenobites helped Kirsty fight the Cenobite Dr. Channard, but died doing so. Kirsty got out of hell with Tiffany, and started a new life and a new beginning.

Hellraiser III: Hell On EarthEdit

Apparently, when she was in the Channard Institute, she had been recorded and she was explaining what the puzzle box does.

Hellraiser: HellseekerEdit

She was married and she was originally thought to have died in a car crash, but her husband ended up dying instead. She had opened the box again, and when Pinhead appeared, she made a deal with him; she would bring him five souls in exchange for amnesty. Pinhead was immediately intrigued and agreed to her terms. The five souls were that of her husband Trevor, his co-worker who was plotting with him to kill Kirsty for her money, and the three women that Trevor had been cheating on her with.
