Purdey kills?

Did Purdey ever kill an opponent? The guy in Sleeper perhaps that she knocks off the train? :doubt:

She kicked the shooter from The Midas Touch off a ledge and broke his neck. She also kicked Mullins onto his arrow in Faces. Generally speaking her opponents tend to survive, though--I guess you don't want your heroes offing too many people. :lol:

Re: Purdey kills?

Like Timeless said - I think Purdey would generally try not to kill anyone. Her reaction to Mullin's death in Faces pretty much gives away that fact, but I'm pretty sure she would if that's what is necessary to save someone else's life.

It's a little unclear whether he's dead or just injured, but well-spotted.

Dead, I think. Let's just say I wouldn't want to get a wooden spear thrown in my chest like that. :lolol:

I wouldn't either, but I don't recall which side she hits him on--if it's not near the heart he probably made it. Couple of Advil probably wouldn't go amiss, though. :lol:

She kicked him off the train car, but again, it's not confirmed if he's dead or just unconscious.

Re: Purdey kills?

This might help: Piers Johnson's "Who's Killing Whom?" which tabulates all the deaths in the series, including those made by our heroes. Not surprisingly, Gambit, as resident action man, takes out more people than Purdey.

She gives one of them a good kicking, but again, doesn't kill him. Purdey was always more about subduing, it seems.
