Royal is a 29 year old acupuncturist & massage therapist. She moved to town in mid-November 2018 after purchasing a storefront via an internet ad, and is renovating it/drinking while she works through some serious buyer's remorse trouble dealing with the Colorado winters and all this mountain air and all these mountain men. The buyer's remorse thing is pretty much settled. She's here for it, whatever Calaveras will bring.

Originally from a small river town in Kentucky, she moved to and served as an EMT with the Colorado Springs Fire Department for a couple of years. Four years ago, that changed. A major structure fire in CSprings claimed the lives of several civilians & 3 firefighters. She took leave from the department after injury herself (in that same fire) and never went back. The move to Calaveras comes on the heels of a long recovery and some life changes, including acceptance to the University here to work on a physical therapy degree (at night, v. slowly).

Recently, Royal's interests changed a bit, and she's been making inquiries with the local FD.


"In the South, the breeze blows softer…neighbors are friendlier, nosier, and more talkative. (By contrast with the Yankee, the Southerner never uses one word when ten or twenty will do)…This is a different place. Our way of thinking is different, as are our ways of seeing, laughing, singing, eating, meeting and parting. Our walk is different, as the old song goes, our talk and our names. Nothing about us is quite the same as in the country to the north and west. What we carry in our memories is different too, and that may explain everything else." - Charles Kuralt in Southerners: Portrait of a People
