Sonya Summers is a character role-played by Spekel

Background[edit | edit source]

Sonya Summers is a business woman and assassin. She founded the company Black Betty, Inc. with Gomer Colton and Sean Tinker. Known as a ruthless killer, she is respected by some and hated by many. She is one of the most feared women in the criminal underworld.

Jailbreak and “Death”[edit | edit source]

She was broken out of jail on Aug. 7, 2019, by the Chang Gang under the request of Nino Chavez. Nino wanted her dead for shooting his friend Coop Holliday. Following the successful jailbreak, she was then deceived by Chang and was brought directly to Nino in a remote location. She was then beaten in the head multiple times with a wrench by Allen Widemann under Nino's orders. Her body was then dumped into the ocean and she was presumed dead.

The Rescue[edit | edit source]

A man wearing scuba gear named "Funny Man" jumped into the ocean to retrieve Sonya's body. She was then taken to a secluded area where a mysterious doctor treated her. Once healed, Sonya and the doctor met at the Vanilla Unicorn. Sonya told the doctor that the last thing she remembered was sitting in jail, waiting to see whether or not she was getting a life sentence. The doctor explained to Sonya that for the next week she would not be in peak physical condition. He recommended that she not get back into her usual criminal activities.

Reasons[edit | edit source]

The doctor told Sonya that aside from the drugs, she is alive because Gomer wanted her alive. Sonya immediately asked if Gomer was okay, to which the doctor responded; "It is Gomer Colton, Gomer is always fine."  

Sonya felt like she had lost everything. The doctor stated it was ensured she had lost everything, that her actions took everything out from beneath her. The doctor pointed out to Sonya that the only reason they were both standing there is because Irwin Dundee did not do as commanded. By doing so Irwin procured a debt, one that he will have to pay, one that the doctor will have to settle with him.

Recovery[edit | edit source]

The doctor told Sonya that while she is recovering her strength, he will fill in the gaps of her memory when necessary. The doctor told her that he would answer one question honestly, with no 'cryptic bullshit' as she had put it. Sonya asked; "If I walk out that door, am I going to be hunted?" ' The doctor replied; "Not by me, and not by Nino. But I cannot be certain that any previous hostilities were put to rest, if people know that you are alive." 

Sonya believed that she could deal with anyone who would dare to come after her. The doctor, however, knew better and explained that if she were to fire a gun, the recoil would probably tear her own face off. He mentioned that she was barely alive and in no condition to fight. Sonya agreed with him and said she will lay low for a while to heal up and come up with a plan before heading back out. She went to a country home with Gomer and met with Raja Bahadur who seemed thrilled that she was alive. She rested until she felt she was ready to get back into action and try to run her business again. 

The Offer[edit | edit source]

Once back at full strength Sonya decided she'd break into the cocaine market and offered Raja a partnership which he was not thrilled about. Raja wanted to retain control of the coke market in Vinewood and did not want to work with Sonya at all. He felt as though she was attempting a hostile takeover of his business and their relationship quickly deteriorated. Meanwhile, Raja was having his own issues with Arthur Hammond aka "The Doctor" and he knew that both Sonya and Gomer were close associates of Hammond.

Raja's Choice[edit | edit source]

Sonya had a private meeting with Raja at a farm to give Raja back a pistol which they agreed would permanently kill if shot in the head. Raja was very sceptical of this because he felt Sonya was trying to deceive him since Arthur informed him that Sonya offered to kill him with that gun. Sonya denied wanting to actually kill Raja and said she just did not want the gun and reminded Raja that they were once close allies. Raja was told by several people that he was too trusting and said that perhaps he should use the gun on her. She defiantly told him to use the gun on her right now if he does not believe what she told him. Raja used the pistol and shot her multiple times in the chest and then dropped her body in the ocean.

The Message[edit | edit source]

After the incident with Raja, Sonya was presumed dead at sea. Her friends had not heard from her for quite some time and had no clue of her whereabouts. Months after her disappearance, Gomer received a random text message from Sonya's number which read in part:

"...I'm ok. I don't know what happened but I've left the city, I thought it was safe. I was wrong. I want you to know I loved you and Tinker and I will miss u."

Gomer would ask for proof that it was actually her by telling him something only they would know. Her response:

"We both laid on the graves near shitville in the rain."

With that Gomer knew it was her and got closure on her status. The future is uncertain but for now Sonya Summers has left the city.

The Return[edit | edit source]

Dec 5, 2019 Sonya returned to the city with Arthur. She arrived at the prison with Arthur to pick up his fiancée Erin Cox. As Erin got in the car, Arthur using a voice changer shouted "Let me know if you have something clever to fucking say next time!" Sonya then pulled out a gun and shot the CO down in cold blood, and the car speed away. When questioned about her sudden return, Sonya said she wants to attend Arthur and Erin's wedding.

She informed Erin that Arthur is the reason she has returned, but she is unsure if she will remain in the city. Arthur told her that leaving the city was not the correct decision, he accused her of wasting time. Sonya was discouraged by everyone refusing to do business with her. She was also frustrated by people believing she is a loose cannon. Arthur continued to reprimand her and told her that she does have allies, and they will work with her. She later decided to meet up with Gomer and inform him that she was back in action and looks to reclaim everything she lost. She decided to not work with Gomer or any of the former Black Betty members, instead striking out on her own with help from Boe Jangles.

Prison Meeting[edit | edit source]

Sonya went to Bolingbroke Penitentiary for shooting a police dog while robbing a store. While eating in the prison cafeteria Sonya met Bovice. He informed her that they need to chat in the prison yard. Bovice explained to Sonya that he runs the prison yard. She asked him what happen to him, he told her he was unsure and only remembered pieces of information. She wanted to know if they had problems due to her past involvement with Gomer. Bovice explained that he does not trust her or Gomer, and Gomer owes him a debt. Sonya claimed that she was no longer close with Gomer, and she did not want problems with Bovice.

The Near Death of Murphy Braun[edit | edit source]

December 20, 2019, Murphy Braun was assumed dead from multiple gunshot wounds to the head by Sonya. Sonya was angry with Braun about his performance as her attorney. Braun defiantly told her she does not own him, and he is not one of her workers. She then shot Murphy in the head multiple times and left him presumably dead on the pier After months of care and recovery, Braun survived his injuries and awoke at Dr. Choi Zhangsun home.

The Death of Chris McGrawl[edit | edit source]

Attorney Chris McGrawl was arrested for being publically intoxicated and while in holding he explained that he drank because Sonya was extorting him in Sandy Shores. He also informed Officer Jordan Steele that Negan Graham and the Lost MC forced him to move out of his trailer in Sandy Shores. Sonya contacted McGrawl to collect $100K from him, but she was unable to locate him. McGrawl was placed in a holding cell at MRPD for his safety by Steele and Cadet Brian Knight. Steele and Knight then left to repsond to an active police chase. Sonya later called him again, and he explained that he was in a cell but did not mention his location. She deduced that he must be at MRPD, and she checked the doors and discovered the back door unlocked. She then went down to the holding area and shot McGrawl several times with a shotgun killing him.

Investigated for Murder[edit | edit source]

Sonya threw the shotgun used to kill McGrawl into the ocean and she went with Sean Tinker and Sarah Ableton to the morgue to view the body. Officer Steele and Cadet Knight were also at the morgue with Dr. Agnes Ranbough. They were questioned and Sonya said she was only a client of McGrawl, but she wanted to collect $50K which she loaned him to buy a house. Police then followed Sonya's car and stopped her for illegal window tint. Tinker and Sonya were arrested after a search which uncovered a gun and drugs. Sonya and Tinker were arrested and held at MRPD for hours. Police received authorization from Judge Katya Zamalodchikova to search Sonya's phone. Sonya attempted to attacked Steele and Knight and was shot. EMS arrived to treat Sonya and Tinker was released. Sonya faced murder charges and was taken to a bail hearing at the courthouse. ADA Odessa Pearson recommended that Sonya get held in jail until trial. Judge Buck Stanton questioned the claims of the ADA, and after a brief deliberation he granted Sonya $50K bail until trial. The investigation ultimatly was dropped by police for unkown reasons and McGrawl's murder remains unsolved.

Wheelchair-Bound[edit | edit source]

On February 24, 2020, Sonya was injured during a destruction derby organized by Gomer. A truck crashed onto her legs and forced her into a wheelchair for three days. Sonya initially believed the accident to be an intentional attempt on her life by Gomer, in association with bikers. Gomer rectified the misunderstanding and the two rekindled a shaky friendship. She also declared war on Cadet Domenic Toretti for stopping her car for illegal window tints, vowing to shoot him everytime he pulls her over.

Infected[edit | edit source]

Sonya had an ongoing war with the Lost MC and members of the Vanilla Unicorn Strip Club including Leslie Ling. The war was brutal and costly, Sonya paid the Vagos $100K to execute a hit on the Lost MC. Sonya wanted to get rid of the trailer she owned in Sandy and bring an end to war. However, the bikers and Leslie contracted Siz Fulker to torture Sonya and make her life a living hell. Siz and his crew including Curtis Swoleroid were disguised and captured Sonya. She tried to negotiate with them but Siz declined her offers. He then infected her with a mix of diseases including ringworm, swine flu, leprosy, and HIV.

Body Swap[edit | edit source]

Sonya sought help from Dr. Agnes Ranbough, to help rid her body of HIV. Agnes previously helped Chips Ahoy rid his body of HIV. Agnes advised Sonya that she'd need to transplant her brain into a host body until her infected body was cured. They went to the morgue and stole the corpse of the man she murdered, lawyer Chris McGrawl. Agnes then transplanted Sonya's brain into McGrawl's body, she told Sonya it would take at least 2 weeks to cure the infection.

Steele Connection[edit | edit source]

Sonya began stalking and tormenting Officer Domenic Toretti in McGrawl's body, who often positioned her as a woman. She also received a call from her former rival Jordan Steele. He explained that he was no longer a cop, and he was low on money and needed work. She agreed to give him some weed to sell as an act of good faith. While she sold weed in gang territory, she was harassed by Leanbois members including Ellie Dono and Lang Buddha. While meeting with Ramee El-Rahman in the south side, Jordan Steele and members of Steele Security arrived asking if anyone needed help. She offered Jordan her gun list and they later arranged a deal for $20K for guns and Jordan requested a future favor from Sonya. Jordan said he no longer tows cars and he likes Sonya, and he also purchased some of her broken guns. Reporter Gregory Stonefinger published an article indicating Sonya as the murderer of Chris McGrawl, she wanted him dead. She hired Jordan to get Stonefinger for $20K. He agreed and later said he did the job and the article would be removed. Sonya paid him but was sceptical because Jordan claimed he dropped Stonefinger in the ocean, she offered him more money to recapture Stonefinger and bring him to her.

Summers V. Braun[edit | edit source]

Dr. Agnes informed Sonya that her body was free from infection, she then transplanted Sonya's brain back into her orginal female body. Sonya quickly adjusted and continued her business and criminal activities. Murphy Braun took Sonya to court, suing for lost wages directly caused by Sonya's actions. Judge Dennis Labarre presided over the trial. He ruled that Sonya was responsible for punitive damages and awarded Braun $15K, which Sonya could pay to the court or Braun directly. Sonya was not responsible for his time out of work so the state paid him an additional $35K for lost wages. After the trial Sonya continued her war on the Leanbois, she felt disrespected by the gang and went to the south side alone to attack. She was able to assault members of teh gang and sh was also injured various times. The war against the Leanbois continues.
