Ava first appeared in
Springfield at Outskirts when she ran into
the arms of Jonathan Randall. He ended up helping her because a loan
shark was on her tail. She and Jonathan then began working together,
and later they became friends.
Since she was
first seen, Ava has shown herself to be hard
working, determined, and stubborn, as well as secretive. For example,
she hid the fact that she was married to Sandy Foster.
Ava appears to care deeply for those in her life. Once they are in
her heart, it is hard to get them out. This was evidenced by the way
she wanted to remain married to Sandy, despite his having left her.
She has also been accepted into the Cooper family; she and Coop
friends. Buzz, Frank, and the whole gang have almost adopted her
as one of their own. Ava was interested in Coop for a while
romantically, but he was more interested in Lizzie at the time.
Since moving to Springfield, Ava has had some major changes happen in
her life. The most obvious one was that she found out that she was
adopted by the Peraltas. This was a shock to her.
Even more shocking was that both of her biological parents were
living in Springfield, and that she was a product of rape. Olivia
Spencer is her mother, and Jeffrey O’Neill is her father. When the
news came out, they both did not know how to handle it or how to
deal with her. Eventually, they all learned how to get along.
Ava acted badly
for a while, in part because she was afraid of Olivia's dying. She
schemed to steal Bill from Lizzie. She got pregnant and tried to
pass the baby off as Bill's. However, it was really Remy's baby,
which soon became obvious after the baby was born (since it was
black). She and Bill were briefly married but then had the
marriage annulled. Ava got post-partum depression and went off
to a clinic to deal with it, but then the baby died, and it was a
great loss to everyone, especially Ava. The tragedy seemed to shock
her back into being a good person. She tried to convince Remy to
leave town with her, but he was already seeing someone else. She
left alone, although she did come back for a brief visit.
