Janet Marshall was born on June 17th 1956 to Robert Marshall and Diana Marshall in Haddonfield. She was a student at Haddonfield University and a nurse at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. She was working the night that Laurie Strode was admitted following a string of deaths wrought by her psychotic brother, Michael Myers. When Michael cut the telephone lines running to the hospital, Janet assisted a security guard named Bernard Garrett in a failed effort to repair them. Janet was later sent to find Frederick Mixter when Laurie demonstrated an adverse reaction to her medication. She found Mixter in his office with a syringe sticking out of his eye. Moments later, Michael Myers appeared from the shadows behind her with another syringe, which he used to inject air into her temple, killing her.
