Madame Butterfly runs The Butterfly Effect, an exclusive Gentlemen’s Club in Bellvue, Seattle. Entry to the club is by invite only and rumours abound concerning what entertainments are actually on offer in the club.
Prior to the opening of The Butterfly Effect no one had ever heard of Madame Butterfly and it is not certain where she got the finance or backing to open such a luxurious club in one of the most expensive districts in Seattle. Over the years there have been several unsubstantiated rumours concerning her origins including:
• that she was once an escort herself who was favoured by either an Arabic or Tir Tairngire Prince, the human form of Lofwyr or the Oyabun of Oyabun
• that she is one of the so called “Immortal Elves” from one of the 2 Tir nations and has personal finance to rival many AA corporations
• she was a Bunraku Sex Doll whom the madame took a liking to, and who ended up taking over the business when the previous madame died, possible at Madame Butterfly’s hands
She also works as a fixer/agent, though she never mixes the 2 vocations and will not acknowledge a runner contact should they somehow gain entry to her club, though she has been known to give either guest or, in a handful of cases, permanent membership to those who have worked directly for her and performed exceptionally well.
All of her illicit meetings/contacts are carried out in her custom designed matrix host and to gain access she either contacts you and gives you the code or more often you have to prove your worth by finding out about the additional services she supplies and hacking your way in, or arranging for someone to hack in and add you to the list of accepted parties.
