Marguerita Salt was born in a Vegas hotel room to the wife of a respected senator and the hotel's bellboy. In fact her mother had returned to Vegas in order to confront their bellboy about their soon-to-be-born child who had been conceived when the senator's wife visited the hotel earlier that year. Marguerita's father got the news battered into him when he was forced to help deliver his own daughter into the world and into his custody. Since Marguerita's own birth was a scandal, she made it her life's work to uncover sordid affairs like the one that spawned her.

Marguerita lived with her father until she was 19 years old, and in that time she used her innate research skills to dig up dirt on all the wealthiest hotel owners in Vegas and blackmail them into helping her father, Victor Salt, move up in the world. Victor now owns half the hotels in Vegas and only has to work for half an hour per week. Needless to say, he no longer regrets the "investment" he made in the senator's wife.

Marguerita moved to Hollywood after deciding college wasn't for her and dropping out after the first week. Her skills quickly got her work as a freelance investigative journalit, and her specialty was finding out the secrets of the stars and selling them to gossip magazines. Unfortunately, this job often involved less-than-legal activities, such as breaking into celebrity's homes to find evidence, and setting up cameras in hotel rooms, and it wasn't long before the police department began to get sick of this kind of behaviour. After Paris Hilton walked in on Marguerita swabbing her bathroom for evidence of drug use, leading to a rather violent but very sexy cat fight, the Chief of Police lost his temper and had Marguerita forcibly removed from Hollywood and banned rom ever returning again. He had the authority to do this because he is merely a narrative device being used to move this plot along.

After returning to Vegas with plans to continue building up her father's hotel empire (and her own inheritance), Marguerita found Victor in tears. It soon transpired that Marguerita's mother had returned to Vegas in order to be reunited with the father of her child, but her husband had had her followed and assassinated. Because the senator was so powerful, the murder was soon covered up and recorded as a suicide.

Furious at this miscarriage of justice but powerless to do anything about it, Marguerita vowed to avenge her mother's death. She decided to build up her own reputation as a SuperSleuth and one day return to Vegas with the skills and influence to expose the true nature of her mother's death and ruin the senator's career.

To get this done quickly, Marguerita did some research, found the city with the highest murder-rate in the world and moved there. She joined up with a new and exciting detective agency and got to work...
