Susan is an obsessed fan of Anna. She is a character in American Horror Story: Delicate portrayed by Ashlie Atkinson.



Susan is first introduced in Rockabye as an infatuated fan of Anna when meeting her in the bathroom. This leads to an altercation where Anna appears to have killed Susan.

During Anna's acceptance speech, she is seen again applauding with a bloodied appearance next to Babette along with a bloodied apparition of Io Preecher causing Anna to vomit and faint. Anna awakens in the women's bathroom with paramedics and Dex with no trace of Susan's body.

Susan is next seen in the bathroom during Opening Night reenacting her first meeting with Anna and antagonizes her, being excessively crude and hostile towards later. Later on, she is seen clapping for Anna at the art gallery before swiftly disappearing.

During Ave Hestia, Susan appears as a pharmacist as Adeline purchases a pregnancy test. Adeline's unsurprised but piercing gaze as she backs away confirms Susan's affiliation with the Delicate Coven. She then proceeds to bleed excessively through her mouth.
