Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #30: Smoke Queen and Terrence

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.

Not all of VABI's member are really villainous at heart. Some just fall in with the wrong crowd. Terrence is a perfect example of this. He was a street person and suffered from several psychological disorders. He doesn't even remember his last name. One day a woman who was literally smoking hot fell into his lap. Terrence instantly fell in love and took her to his secret place for safety.

He didn't even realize he should have been badly burned.

The woman woke up in a dark dismal place that was lit by candles. The walls though were bright in the dimness by colorful drawings Terrence had done. She introduced herself as the Smoke Queen and told Terrence that the police wanted to kill her because she had embarrassed them. Terrence was aghast and promised to do anything to help protect her. This touched the Smoke Queen and she kissed him. Terrence, who had given no indication of any super powers, was suddenly filled with incredible strength and durability. He became her knight and body guard and the rest of the story can be found on many front pages of newspapers.

Well almost all of it. See, the Smoke Queen had researched the government program that gave her her barely controlled pyrokinesis. She found there was another child involved a certain Terrence Moorehaven. She then came to VABI and hired a good telepath. From afar the telepath help manipulate Terrence so that he would fall in love with the Smoke Queen. Neither knew that it was love that was the key to Terrence's power, a lucky break for the Queen but in some ways annoying. She really has no feelings for Terrence but must continually lead her knight on.

  1. Sad tale of the misfortunes of love, why it shouldn't be manipulated for any cause.
