Tyranny Rex

Part of John Smith's expanded universe (and often directly tied into the plots of Indigo Prime) Tyranny Rex is a flesh artist and mercenary, hellbent first on vengeance, then a redemption that's out of reach. For all her chutzpah and drive, it's never really clear what makes Tyranny tick and she remains an enigmatic character.
