Mitch grew up in Western Montana. She never knew her father, but she and her mother, who taught her to hunt deer at the age of six, were very close, up until her sudden death from a brain aneurysm when Mitch was fourteen. Upon Annie Pinkett’s death, Mitch’s uncle Billy took her in. They remain very close and often go hunting together, though he is unaware of the more supernatural game his niece now pursues.
After high school, Mitch attended the University of Montana in Missoula, where she met Chloe Fitzpatrick. Mitch and Chloe began dating only three months into their freshman year and three years later, on Mitch’s 22nd birthday, she planned on taking the love of her life on an overnight camping trip in the hunting preserve and asking Chloe to marry her.
Things did not go according to plan. That night, Mitch woke to a bloodcurdling scream and an empty space where Chloe had been sleeping. She rushed out of the tent to find an enormous beast hunched over Chloe’s body. Mitch attempted to take it down, but it nearly overpowered her.
Luckily, a cell of Bear Lodge hunters, headed by Marge and Tom Lambert, had been tracking what Mitch later found out was a werewolf. Marge saw Mitch’s skill with a bow and realized her potential. Mitch easily passed her initiation once she was given the proper equipment and was admitted into the ranks of the Bear Lodge.
It has been four years since that incident and Mitch has been hunting werewolves as a Trapper: Though she enjoys the hunt, her true motivation is to make sure that what happened to Chloe won’t happen to anyone else if she has the power to stop it.
Mitch has two dogs and a cat back in Montana. Marge is looking after them for her while Mitch is in Alaska. Her bloodhounds are litter-mates, the Duke and Duchess of Droopshire. They are both two. Her Maine Coon was a stray that wandered to her cabin three years ago, whom she named Lady Flufferbutter.
