"Ruth Sunday was a damn good cop. We had our differences, but she'd still be alive if I didn't trust you."
Eddy Costa to Jessica Jones[src]

Ruth Sunday was a headstrong and often skeptical individual whom, upon seeking deeper investigation on the death of Robert Coleman, openly expressed her disliking of persons with abilities such as Jessica Jones. Despite her lack of trust in Jones, Sunday worked alongside Eddy Costa, only yielding restraint if it proved to aid in their investigations.

Upon being held captive by Alisa Jones, Sunday asked Costa to sacrifice her in order to kill Alisa.
