“A laboratory-created, dragon humanoid. Created by melding the mind of a machine with a woman, after synthesis it’s unclear if the woman retains any control. She was pretty much the sacrificial component of the experiment. The chosen element was ice. She’s as cool as the metal that dwells in her .”

Runner-up: Tanya Ren. You win a $20 gift certificate at Half Moon!
