Cheryl was Ash's sister and his only known close relative. She was the odd girl of the group. She was a Michigan State student and was into art and drawing. She was the first to notice something wasn't right at the cabin. She tried to get the others to listen but they didn't. When she went outside at night investigating noises, the possessed trees of the forest raped her. She managed to break free and run back to the cabin. She demanded that Ash drive her into town but both found that the bridge has been damaged and turned into the shape of a skeletal hand, forcing them to return to the cabin. Shortly afterwards, she became possessed by a demon. She attacked Ash and the others, managing to seriously injure and incapacitate Linda with a pencil. She was locked in the cellar by Scotty and remained there for the majority of the film, where it was seen that her appearance has worsened. After the possessed Linda was killed, Cheryl finally broke out of the cellar. Ash shot her with a shotgun but it didn't kill her. After Ash got back from the cellar she attacked him through the door and got shot in the face. She attacked Ash with a fireplace poker, while the newly dead and possessed Scotty held him by the leg, until he threw the book of the dead into the fireplace. As the book burned, her possessed body began decomposing at a rapid rate along with Scotty's. She and the demons inside her were seemingly destroyed.
