Femme d'une certaine age. Dresses in striking black & white costumes and changes appearance frequently, but always in black and white. Perhaps her hair is white or a long black wig, and perhaps there are a few white accents to set off the black. She has an odd tic, physical and verbal which should be subtly unnerving. Wierd in a strange, digital way, as if she might be an AI. Her actual identity remains ambiguous throughout. See this Max Headroom video for an example of another digitally strange character: hashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYdpOjletnc.
