StorylinesEdit

Olivia is a mobster with family ties to the Jerome mob family.  She is romantically involved with Duke Lavery. She finds herself in a power struggle over her father Victor's mob business against her brother Julian Jerome and their illegitimate half-brother Dino.  Olivia is almost killed by Dino, but she survives and suffers a severe brain injury and has to be institutionalized. Dino is arrested, and Victor dies after becoming insanely obsessed with Lucy Coe.

Her brother Julian eventually becomes the head of the Jerome empire, but is seeking revenge on Duke for turning against his father. Her brother tries to enlist Olivia in a plan to get back at Duke for his betrayal. However, their plan misfires, and Duke's wife, Anna Devane, miscarries their unborn child. Olivia tries to alert Anna about Julian's plans, but Julian kills her before she can.

Duke wants revenge, but is "killed" trying.  However, an impostor named Jonathan Paget shows up looking like Duke. Julian and "Duke" engage in a shootout.  Both appear to die.  However, in 2013, Julian Jerome arrives back in town under the alias Derek Wells.  The real Duke Lavery was revealed in 2012 to be alive and had been held prisoner in a Turkish prison.  It is unclear if Olivia is also alive using the nickname Ava or is actually died and Ava is a previously unknown sister to Olivia. On October 25th, Julian confirms that Olivia and Ava are two different people.
