VERONICA

Previously one of Fortunato's 'geishas', Veronica was a beautiful, high-class, Puerto Rican call-girl and the closest thing Croyd Crenson had to a regular girlfriend before she found her soul mate, whereupon she decided to give it all up for the quiet life. Fate had other plans however, and a previous encounter with The Sleeper during his infamous 'Typhoid Croyd' phase resulted in her being infected with the Wild Card.

Now an Ace, she possesses an erratic ability that only affects the male hormone - draining the life energy from any man in the vicinity and leaving them begging for mercy. So, no change then.
