Veronica "Ronnie" Simms is 5' 9", blonde and is Anita's best friend and her usual workout partner and confidante. A private investigator on retainer with Animators, Inc. She is not a "shooter" like Anita. Of late their relationship has broken down. Ronnie, once the one to encourage a sexually carefree attitude in Anita, is now monogamous while the initially prudish Anita currently sleeps with several different men a day. This puts a strain on their relationship, since Anita always thought she'd have one man of her own and has been often conflicted with having more than one to love or sleep with. While Ronnie is rather stunned at the realization of only having one real lover for the rest of her life, potentially, after hitting "triple digits" in bed partners before falling for biology professor and wererat Louis Fane.
