I've decided to open source the Femme Fatale Slenderproxy from my upcoming PI blog before I begin writing the blog she features in. With access to the Path of Black Leaves she could show up anywhere and still feature in my blog. All I ask is that she not be killed off without permission and that no drastic changes in her character take place.
No one knows her real name, she's used so many aliases and back-stories even she may have forgotten her past before she began serving her Father. So far very few people have connected the beautiful woman with an uncanny resemblance to Rita Hayworth with the masked killer Mame. Unless they do make the connection most people have no idea at all that she's a Proxy.
Usually she operates as a honey trap, seducing targets for information or to set them up for someone else to kill - or even to try and recruit a Runner to her side. She's also not above slipping her target a mickey if it will serve her purposes. When she needs to kill someone herself her preferred weapon is a garrote. When planning to kill she puts on her mask and brings along the "la loupe" style garrote preferred by the French Foreign Legion (see the linked wiki article), however when in civilian garb she always wears a silk scarf or some other item that can be used as a garrote in a pinch. She has also shown skill in Krav Maga. The only supernatural ability she has shown is the access to the Path of Black Leaves common to Slenderproxies.
She has also been known to develop an inexplicable fondness for the occasional Runner in which case she has been known to aid them, even against other Proxies (Slenderproxies as well as those of other Fears). Some worry that she's just setting her hook even further to make a future betrayal more emotionally damaging but it hasn't happened yet.
The name "Mame" comes from the song "Put the Blame on Mame" written for the 1946 film "Gilda" and sung by Rita Hayworth's character. The fact that it's pronounced exactly like "Maim" is just a happy coincidence. There are other verses to the song but I thought I'd link to the original performance.

The Children of the Cold and The Winter Court are both Open Source now.
The Children of the Cold are the Cold Boy's proxies. They all agreed to become numb - which means that their bodies are technically dead. So the normal means of killing proxies - shooting, stabbing, et cetera - won't work. You pretty much have to cut off their head. (Burning probably won't work since they are sort of surrounded by an aura of coldness - and cold is simply a subtraction of heat, so fire tends to die down around them.)
The Winter Court is the eldritch dimension where the Children of the Cold live and use to travel. At first, it may just look like the same city, but with snow and ice everywhere, but soon it becomes different. All the buildings are made of ice and are intricate structures. All buildings except one, however: the Winter's Heart where you can see the "true" form of the Cold Boy. All the Children of the Cold have seen it only once - and it turns their eyes black (though Claire can change her eye color in some unknown way to disguise that fact) and begins the process of their becoming numb/dead.
Oh and Karen and The Liar (Dying Man Piece) are open source now.
The Liar tends to possess Proxies and doesn't control his possessed physically only subtly controlling they're thoughts and there so controlling what they say and do without actually giving anything that would show the person as possessed. Unlike normal Dying Man Pieces he prefers to stay hidden and keep a low profile.
I'm not crazy I just use a different definition of sanity...
The Forum Blunt Instrument. "Because sometimes the only way to get through to someone is with a sledgehammer."
Also, an OOG Tumblr where I do a whole lot of stuff. I might talk about my blogs, the Mythos in general, or the vlog my brother is planning. Or I might blather on forever about other stuff and reblog random shit from everywhere. Whatever floats my boat, basically.
