Nora Fox is a Red Riding Hood, no longer a child but not yet a woman. Gayle Vat is a Bad Wolf in good standing with the Lupine’s Malevolent Society. The pair are currently shacked up because Nora needs a family right now and doesn’t know that many people in the waking world. Gayle is going along with it because shes thinks Nora is cute, she’s a bit of a chaser, and she could use some help with rent.

Skint is a parsimonious little Imp of Greed that somehow managed to beg, bribe, or steal her way into a human vessel. Unfortunately, once she took it for a test drive she discovered that it didn’t quite look or feel how she was expecting. Since she was hardly in a position to demand a different body from hell, she’s been making “after market” modifications to the body she has so that she can at least consider it to be a work of art.
