Adri is a swivelchair intellectual with an affinity for cultural egalitarianism and a guilty predilection towards purple prose. She is hermetic in nature and adventurous in spirit – which is to say, she really likes The Internet. A Young Urban Professional by training, she prefers to squander her free waking hours taking naps in museum sculpture gardens, when she isn’t too busy gentrifying your neighborhood. As the product of dueling lineages alternately colonized by the Second Reich Germans, the Meiji-Fascist Japanese, the Imperial British, and the Red Chinese (among others), she is of the firm belief that when she is reincarnated, she will lead a passionate and violent nationalist revolution that will go horribly awry.
