Ms. Valentine unmasked! I've stated before that she was originally intended to be a throw away villain that became a favorite of mine, so unlike most of the main characters I've created, she's been a complete unknown to me. This has made it a lot of fun coming up with character interactions between her and Leila. Which has also helped me add a little more life to Leila's character who never really had much of a story line to begin with, and was orgininally intended to be one of the less important characters. It's kind of funny really, I've spent over 20 years coming up with characters, places, and events to flush out this story, and when I finally do, I come at it sideways with characters I had never really given much thought. Maybe the nostalgia of the older characters made me too close to the subject, like I wasn't willing to bend their story lines for fear of loosing the work I did in crafting them so many years ago.
