Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #20: Doctor Ashtorah

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

VABI often follows the letter of the law, specially our legal department.  We, however, will always be essentially outside the law.  Authorities will always be seeking VABI's assets and personal.  This is an expected cost of business.  The truly annoying aspect are those individuals who decide to stick their noses in our business.  Of these prodnoses Dr. Ashtorah has become particularly prickly.
Dr. Valleria Ashtorah has made it her business to investigate all aspects of VABI and report to the Authorities.  She is a forensic financial expert among her other areas of expertise.   Dr. Ashtorah is one of those few people blessed with seeming immortality.  She is at least three hundred years old but doesn't look a day over forty.  She has made her self the equivalent of a PHD in over thirty fields.  She is also an expert marksman and fencer.  VABI agents are warned not to underestimate her.
VABI's response to Dr. Ashtorah's constant investigation has changed over the years.  Under past management she was under a death sentence.  Unfortunately, it's clear enough that it didn't take.  Current strategy is to set up a series of false flag operations to confuse her and others.  Though, there's an increased expense in doing this it does have the benefit that if the false flag is not discovered then there is double the profit from both the false flag and the true operation.  In any event, keeping bloodshed to a minimum helps keep VABI below the radar of the ever watchful Authorities.
