Ruby Windsor was born in Morecambe Bay, Lancashire. Due to her allergy to chickens, she answered an advertisement in the Poultry Farmers Gazette and was subsequently taken on as a patient at Piz Gloria. Headed by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the leader of SPECTRE, she and many other women with allergies were brainwashed into taking a bottle of 'chicken virus' back to England that was given to them by Blofeld so that it could destroy all the chicken stocks.
While at Piz Gloria she meets with James Bond who is secretly staying undercover as Sir Hillary Bray so that he can get close to Blofeld and try and lure him out of Switzerland. With Ruby's help, he is able to learn the names of all the girls and warn the proper authorities. Consequently, as the women return to their home countries, they are caught by customs.
