Early History

According to Georgie, she was driving home with her friend who was too drunk to drive. Georgie was also drunk and reached for her phone when she got in a car accident. Both girls died - Georgie's friend was killed instantly, but Georgie only died for a few moments. She saw a mystical symbol while she was there and immediately knew that she was going to Hell. When she returned she had a tattoo of the same mystical symbol. Georgie said that she was in Hell for a few moments.

After the accident, Georgie served time in prison for vehicular manslaughter. While in prison, she educated herself on Hell and has a self-proclaimed PhD in the subject.

In Hello, Brother, Georgie was trying to discover a secret location inside the cave located in The Armory's vault. She found a secret entrance and the previous lair of Sybil. Georgie, Alaric and Dorian tried to explore the secret location where they found treasures and the skeleton of a dead man.

In You Decided That I Was Worth Saving, Georgie witnessed Sybil's capture by Alaric and Stefan making her curious about Alaric's intentions.

In An Eternity of Misery, Georgie tried to steal a book in Alaric's house and was caught by Seline. She returned to The Armory, trapped Alaric in the vault and injected vervain into Stefan. She called Seline and asked her why she forced her to do that. Later she sent a message from Sybil and Seline killed her. Georgie woke up as a ghost and was dragged to Hell.
