Emmy Doolin was the daughter of Sergeant Doolin of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Sergeant Doolin encountered the Hunter in Darkness up in Buffalo Woods and shot the creature. The thing he shot turned back to look at him and all Doolin could see in those eyes was something this side of pity. Emmy knew her father's encounter with the unknown was so unsatisfying and it ate him up inside. Sergeant Doolin died a hero bringing in a fugitive named Athabasca Ike and received a full inspector's funeral. Sergeant Doolin's friends in the Mounties said that Ike was ripped apart by claws and their had been a cover up because a man named Logan had been involved. Emmy knew deep inside that the Hunter in Darkness killed her father and she wanted revenge. Emmy found out in the paper that a businessman named Ronald Parvenue spent millions on a hunting expedition into Canada to capture the Hunter in Darkness. Parvenue was using the Hunter as an attraction to lure people into his casino in Atlantic City. Parvenue would first display the Hunter in the middle of Times Square inside a cage as it was hoisted above the air by a helicopter. Parvenue was accompanied by a beauty named Yuriko who actually was Lady Deathstrike. Wolverine, Jubilee and Sabretooth watched the spectacle take place after the Hunter was revealed. Doolin had set up a sniping spot inside a hotel room adjacent to the stage. The Hunter was wounded by Emmy Doolin and that's when Wolverine sprung into action. Wolverine came to help the Hunter and jumped onto its cage but all hell would break loose when Lady Deathstrike and Sabretooth entered the fray. Parvenue would fly off in the helicopter when the cage holding the Hunter in Darkness crashed into a water tower and set the beast free. A slash fest takes place between Wolverine, the Hunter, Deathstrike and Sabretooth. Doolin was shooting anyone that got in her way and she wounded Lady Deathstrike causing her to fall off the building. Doolin shot Wolverine and Sabretooth with mercury tipped bullets that slowly overloaded their healing factor. The poison bullets induced hallucinations in both mutants and saw images of a security goon called Wrangler. Jubilee prevented Doolin from delivering the kill shot and a brief scuffle ensued. Doolin was about to bludgeon Jubilee with her rifle when Wolverine slashed it to pieces. Doolin asked Wolverine where the Hunter was but she was knocked out by Jubilee's right hook.
Emmy Doolin was created by Larry Hama, Marc Silvestri and Dan Green in 1991 and first appeared in Wolverine # 45.
