Unlike many so-called Geniuses Dr. Abigail Arisato is a real doctor, thank you very much. It’s one of the only legitimate things about her. The first important thing she ever learned about life was that intelligence alone would get her nowhere. The second was that her “imaginary friends” were both real and actually demons, and that she had an inborn gift for communicating with them. She figured that one out when they flayed her parents alive for grounding her. It was only much later, after she had finished her PhD in industrial psychology, that she learned they could give her stuff in exchange for one or two little ritualistic murders.

She Catalyzed soon after the incident with her parents and was taken in by a Genius who recognized her Dragon’s Tongue for what it was and taught her how to control her “friends”. When he died she inherited his Briefcase, a miracle of science designed to contain and exploit a hideously powerful infernal artifact stored within.

To the rest of the world she’s a reclusive billionaire whose corporation, Celestial Arms, became one of the largest weapons companies in the world almost overnight. In truth, the entire corporation, all of her wealth, and her phenomenal scientific knowledge are all the result of infernal pacts. The vampire Prince learned that there was something strange going on when she attempted a hostile takeover of the company only to have her accountants rendered comatose. Arisato signed on to the Accord before she could do anything about it so the two still have..unresolved issues.
