Julie is Emily's lunch table companion at Manhattan High School .
Julie is the Daughter of the Christian extremist framed for killing Christian's father. Because of this event he became an alchoholic and is very abusive to Julie when he is drunk, which is basically always,
Julie marries Christian and together they help found the HomeWorld LDS colony, so many of the people of that colony descend from them.
character creation and evolution
Julie was eating lunch with Emily long before I invented Christian. I don't remember whether the similarity between then was the reason I invented him or if it was just realized immediately as I invented him. I believe the latter, but it became the defining point in the creation of both of these characters, thus, in a sense Julie is the source of the Hell colony story.
