Allenby, an Englishman who knows Genelle and Coralyn to be the same person. Genelle steals a famous
emerald from the duchess, and, warned by Allenby, she escapes to an apache den. At the outbreak of
war, Coralyn becomes a Red Cross nurse under the name of Joan Parker, and the suffering and danger of
the battlefield effect a change in her character. To escape the influence of Gaspard, she comes to
America to visit with Hugh Duyker, an American soldier, and refuses to aid Gaspard (who arrives posing
at Count Oudry) in stealing a jewel from Mrs. Duyker. Genelle attempts to thwart Gaspard's plot and is
herself accused; Gaspard escapes with the jewel but is killed by detectives; and Genelle, vindicated, is
united with Allenby.
