Beautiful and insane, Aunup periodically develops a relationship with someone, murders them, and then undergoes surgery to take on their appearance and identity. She has done this almost a dozen times. none of this is particularly unusual, but her insanity is that she seems to actually care about her partners. I find her fascinating: an anachronism of sociopathy. Her habits are particularly obscene for their emotional lasciviousness, and if her history became widely known it would mean severe punishment. Aunup does not seem interested in escape, but she has a pattern of preference for fighting men... the idealism of the NEP and the wildness of the Corvids should be aphrodisiac enough together to compel her service.
