Personality and traits Edit
Flo Bones is generally ill-tempered, sloppily-dressed and of a suspicious nature. She is nevertheless prideful and somewhat good at her job and, like most relic-collectors, possesses a fair amount of talent.
She loves licorice. And often ask for it or bribed with it in exchange of her services to Lockwood & Co. agency.
(Partially told in Book 2, fully told in Book 5:21) Florence Bonnard, at the finals of a fencing competition, bested Anthony Lockwood who earlier bested Quill Kipps at the quarter-finals. (The same event started Lockwood and Kipps' rivalry due to Kipp's humiliated defeat.) The competition's winners were always from Fittes or Rotwell; but that time, Lockwood, under Sykes, won against the competition's favoured competitor Quill Kipps from the Fittes agency. And the winner Flo Bones was from another small agency.
She was a promising apprentice of a two-man agency of Sinclair & Saones (Susan Sinclair and Harry Saones). One night in a chapel, the team were surprise-attacked by two limbless. The two partners were killed. Florence survived by taking an iron cross, going to a corner, and wedging the cross to cover herself. She was trapped the whole night with the limbless trying to get to her and her companions lying dead near her.
That event changed Florence. She's done being an agent even after efforts from Lockwood to help. Flo Bones eventually became a relic-woman.
Years later, Flo Bones was approached by Anthony Lockwood and Lucy Carlyle after Lockwood decided to ask her about information on Jack Carver after they were given the assignment by Inspector Montagu Barnes.
Flo and George Cubbins would continually show mutual interest and care in a subtle manner. The two agree to go out together at the end.
