|“||A middle aged woman, with a family history of diabetes. According to your policy, your secretary is older and weaker, and therefore less worthy to survive.||”|
— William is introduced to Addy by the puppet[src]
Addy was a middle aged woman, who suffered from diabetes like many other members of her family. Nonetheless she was full of the joys of life and spent most of her time with her friends and her loving family. She worked as the secretary of William Easton, the senior vice president of the department for membership and claims at the Umbrella Health insurance company. Therefore, she had a rather subordinate role in the company and administrated all of William's working appointments. While Addy herself didn't have anything to do with the dismissal of the clients' coverage, for which William's department was known, she and her colleagues were ultimately targeted by the John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. (Saw VI)
One day, all of them were abducted and taken to the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute by Detective Mark Hoffman, John Kramer's successor after his death. There, he placed Addy and William's file clerk, Allen, on two small platforms inside a former large aquarium with they hands shackled behind their backs. Additionally, he put a noose of barbed wire around their necks and gagged them.
Shortly afterwards, William, who was trapped at the zoo as well, came across the aquarium, but couldn't see his colleagues as the aquarium was without light. Before the glass pane, he noticed a panel with two handles, each one attached to a chain. When he passed them, he saw the words "TAKE THEM" on two monitors. William initially refused to do so and tried to went on. However, after a few seconds, he heard a beeping sound from an electronic strap around his right arm, which would explode if he ignored Jigsaw's rules. Therefore, he stood in front of the aquarium and reluctantly took the handles. Upon doing so, the chains were tightened and a spotlight was turned on a mechanical ventriloquist puppet, which was standing on another small platform behind the panel with a noose of barbed wire around its neck. One moment later, the platform folded away, causing the puppet to swing forward and hit the glass panel, giving a suggestion of what would happen next. Two spotlights turned on and revealed Allen and Addy on their platforms. The puppet introduced William to his colleagues and confronted him with his business policies. According to those, Addy was less worthy to live as she had a family history of diabetes, while Allen was perfectly healthy but had no living relatives who would miss them. Finally, the puppet told him that he had to let one of them go in order to save the other one. Seconds later, the puppet was pulled up and out of sight by its noose.
William yelled at the puppet and assured his colleagues, who began to panic, that he wouldn't let any of them die. However, moments later the chains were pulled on further. Allen frantically begged his boss to help him. William tried to defend himself, claiming that this wasn't the way he decided about the fate of his clients. The game however went on and the chains were pulled on again. While the two of them begged William for help, the two monitors on the panel showed him photos of Addy with her family and pictures of Allen, who walked around all alone. As the chains were pulled tight, Allen and Addy were forced to walk towards the edge of their respective platform. William bursted out crying and apologized before he finally let go of the handle holding Allen, which immediately sprang back. Allens shackles were then opened. Realizing that William had sentenced him to death, Allen angrily yelled at him. Seconds later, his platform folded away, causing him to swing forward and hit the glass panel. As he was hung to death, his blood splashed against the pane, moments before he was pulled up and out of sight just like the puppet did before. A few moments later, Addy was released from her shackles as well. She immediately took the gag from her mouth and in tears thanked William for her salvation. William then told her to be careful and to try to find a way out as he had to go on. He then left her behind and continued his own game. (Saw VI)
The zoo was found and raided by the Metropolitan Police Department shortly afterwards. As the police secured and searched the entire building, they discovered Addy and freed her from the aquarium. The events surrounding the massacre were later reported to the public by the news channels. (Saw VI, 3D)
Following the events at the zoo, Addy joined a self-help group of Jigsaw survivors who met in a local church. Therefore, she was also present when Bobby Dagen, another supposed Jigsaw survivor, who had earned much fame and wealth by publishing his story of surviving one of Jigsaw's traps, told them about his own experience and encouraged them not to feel ashamed for what they had gone through. After Bobby's dramatic speech, another survivor, Dr. Lawrence Gordon, stood up and sarcastically mocked him and his "remarkable" ability to get something positive out of his horrifying experiences. Bobby however tried to act confident and thanked him. Therefore, Gordon and the other confused members of the group applauded him, showing their gratefulness of being part of his story. (3D)
Not much can be said about Addy's personality due to her short screen time. What can be said however is that she was a person who enjoyed her life and was beloved by her friends and family. Her photos and her gratefulness towards William suggest that she was a very kind-hearted woman.
