"Get out of my way!"
Extremely manipulative and cunning, MISTRESS ARMADA is her own double agent. Nothing is beneath her -- so long as the payoffs are good. And not just money -- Lilian Osborne was born rich, though you won't hear that from her. Her ultimate goal is to be right: her cunning makes sure the game is played her way, whether or not anyone knows she is the one pulling the strings. What started out as a punishment turned into a wealth of talent for explosives and behind the scenes indescretions that make her rise behind Cobra lines seemingly inevitable. The only problem will be if she finds what she is looking for when she gets there, or if she will change sides and begin the game anew.
The daughter of wealthy British bureaucrats, Lilian Osborne was born in Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. Lilian became an incredibly spoiled teenager and was never satisfied with what her parents gave her. When they cut back on her allowance, she simply stole from them. Her father was fed up and sent Lilian to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. She took to the military life surprisingly well and graduated with top honors. She moved on to the British Army where she was trained in counter-intelligence and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD). While serving in the army, Lilian had a chance meeting with a charismatic civilian named Alexander McCullen. The young man's tales of the storied history of his family -- the Destro clan -- persuaded Osborne to leave the army and help in his quest to take over his family's arms-dealing business. She soon discovered that Alexander's claims of military experience and underworld connections were exaggerated to say the least, but she stuck with him, believing his plan had merit. Plus, her interest in McCullen was becoming more than just professional.
Mistress Armada has used her skills and influence to become a ranking field commander in Destro's MARS forces, and shifts her focus to trying to use Alexander and Destro against one another for her own benefit. She secretly wishes to eliminate the Baroness so she will have more influence in the Destro clan.
