Vera Dufour 1890
Born Paris, France. Her parents realised her obvious mathematical brilliance for numbers and stuff at 10 years old, they signed her up for the French Scholars for Distinguished Academics. She flourished, discovering elements and inventing distillation apparatus. She was the first to discover why atoms could never be trusted, why? Because they make up everything. Several nobel prizes later her studies were sidedtracked by a russian navy officer, that can happen, but returned to her field after a two year turbulent relationship that was more unstable than a mix of potassium and water.
Adeline Lebrun 1942
Also known as Adele’s Apple as she caused many an enemy to asphyxiate with just one sharp blow to the throat, Adeline was beautiful and athletic with deadly skills and a voracious appetite for freedom. She was ready to die at any moment for what she believed in. She joined the French Resistance in 1940 and espionage, cracking codes, infiltrating enemy lines and overthrowing Nazi regime kept her busy. This lady saboteur was wanted by the Gestapo as one of the most dangerous allied spies and died at their hands in 1943 refusing to reveal the whereabouts of her compatriots. She was praised for her strength and her courage and by all accounts deep down was just a dotty romantic, bless.
