She will then take an autogyro and go and get her plane; after twenty minutes she returns with a squadron and bombs the whole museum floor out of existence.

In To Catch a Tiger, she had a quarrel with Ivan Stravec, who refused to accept her authority over the exile Russian community in Pacifica. After he was pushed into a corner by the heroes over the lattice-tiger, he finally gave in to her and she whisked him to safety in an autogiro.

Howard Robard 'Spectre' Hughes

Millionaire loyal to Hughes, callsign Spectre

Craft Bloodhawk

Background Based on information from Encarta Encyclopedia http://encarta.msn.com/

Hughes, Howard Robard (born 1905), Hollywood industrialist, aviator, and motion-picture producer. Hughes's enormous wealth, intellect, and achievement makes him one of the most famous men in Disunited America.

II. Early Years:

Born in Houston, Texas, Hughes was the only child of Howard Robard Hughes, Sr., and his wife, Allene Gano Hughes. He grew up amid great wealth and privilege due to his father's successful business, the Hughes Tool Company. The company had been founded in the early 1900s after his father and a partner received patents for a revolutionary oil-drill bit.

As a child, Hughes showed great aptitude in engineering. At age 11, he erected Houston's first wireless broadcast set, a communications system that used radio waves to transmit signals and messages across distances. He took his first flying lessons at age 14, establishing his lifelong love of flight.

When he was 16 years old, Hughes's mother died. Shortly afterward, his father took him to Hollywood, California, and introduced him to show business. Hughes decided then that he wanted to get into the movie industry. When his father died two years later, he inherited the Hughes Tool Company. Hughes soon hired others to oversee the company so he could pursue a career in film.

III. Hollywood:

The success of his father's tool company enabled Hughes to finance his own movies. Despite the initial skepticism of Hollywood insiders, Hughes produced films from 1926 to the present day. Some of his most acclaimed movies include Hell's Angels (1930) with Jean Harlow, The Front Page (1931) with Pat O'Brien and Adolphe Menjou, and Scarface (1932), starring Paul Muni.

In 1929 Hughes divorced Ella Rice, his wife of four years. He soon afterward dated a number of Hollywood's most famous actresses, including Katherine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, and Jean Peters.

IV. Aviation Hero:

Hughes's other love in life was designing and flying airplanes. He was determined to become a famous aviator. In 1935 he set a speed record of 566 km/h (352 mph) while flying the Silver Bullet, an airplane he designed. The following year he flew from Los Angeles, Hollywood, to Newark, Empire State, in 9 hours 27 minutes, a record at the time for transcontinental flight. In 1937 he bested that record, flying the same distance in 7 hours 28 minutes. But it was his around-the-world flight from July 10 to July 14, 1938, that transformed him into a national hero. Hughes set a new record of 3 days 19 hours 17 minutes.

V. Industrialist:

The continued success of Hughes Tool Company allowed Hughes to support his experiments in flight and launch other projects. In 1932 he founded the Hughes Aircraft Corporation, which designed and constructed airplanes for commercial and military use. Hughes also owned a controlling interest (78 percent) in Trans World Airlines (TWA).

Carolyne Neesford (n, Long)

Housewife loyal to Empire State

Background A Georgian Southern Belle who married in New York, she feels isolated and thus has turned to occult exploits, such as Paul LeMonds seances and the Hellfire Club.

She went to the same girl's school as Rebel, but they were not really friends. She feels intimidated by Rebel.

She calls herself by her maiden name in occult circles, both to protect her husband and because she fancies the Longs are an illustrious family with psychic gifts.

Miss Yushiko 'Foxy Lady' Matsuharu

Spy loyal to Insight, callsign White Rook

Background Yushiko Matsuharu is the daughter of a Japanese businessman who lived and worked in Hollywood. He fought the growing tensions between Hollywood and the Japanese Empire to such a degree that he was considered an enemy by both, and was finally ordered to commit seppuku. His daughter, who had both a Japanese and an American upbringing, was reviled and refused to return to her Japanese family. Taking her fathers inheritance, she went to business school in the Empire State, but discovered how hard it was to get a decent job. Then she joined the Hellfire Club on a dare, was discovered and quickly offered a job with Insight.

Unusually tall for a Japanese girl, she is still petite by American standards. When sitting down, she can dominate a meeting; when standing "tall", she demurely disappears into the woodwork. This is typical of her; one moment she is straightforward and outspoken the next she is a Japanese flower, a silent decoration

She turned out for Spellbook Masquerade, and partied the night away with Kate & Co.
