Erika

self-styled Greatest Cat-Burglar in Nexus

Personal Description

Not too tall, and not too curvy (yet). Short blondish hair, grey eyes, and hyperactive. Round, expressive face, volatile emotionally, though usually positive. Usually dresses like a tomboy, in a sort of thirties style; brogues, trousers with suspenders, shirt (no collar) with the sleeves rolled up, cap.

If made to dress up she'd probably wear a tuxedo, but might be pushed into a thirties style evening gown, and would probably look good (ugly-duckling fashion) in it.

Biography

Born and bred in Nexus. After her father died in a terrible manhole accident involving an alien power converter, Erika was raised mostly by her mother and a lot of hanging out with bad company, culminating in Fancy Dan the confidence man, before he came to a nasty end at the slender goblin hands of the Nose brothers. Another member of Dan's gang, Bennie "Plug" (as in ugly) Stone, taught her the rudiments of the burglary trade before he had a nasty slip negotiating the alligator pits of the Scale Barons and now answers to "Lefty", too.
