Bullet looks like a boy, talks like a boy but is, in fact, a girl, a tough scrappy lesbian who's lived on the streets of Seattle since she was 13 years old. Fierce and funny, Bullet protects herself with her larger-than-life bravado and a fearlessness that can sometimes get her into trouble. Bullet is in love with another street kid, a hooker named Lyric, but she has no idea how to express feelings like love and so she'll pine, unrequited, and forever be a "good friend." Bullet is the self-appointed protector of all the street girls and she takes this responsibility with a grave seriousness that can often mean throwing down on the street with guys twice her size... and winning. Deeply distrustful of adults (especially men and authority figures), Bullet will forge an unlikely alliance with Holder who somehow is the one person in the world who completely understands her, and she him.
