IHMN: Lady Prudence Fiona Throckwaddle and the Anti-Slavery League


None strike fear in the heart of the Zanzabari and Arabs slavers (other than Lord Greystoke) than Lady Prudence Fiona Throckwaddle, of the North Piddle Throckwaddle's. A formidable woman (just ask her deceased husband, Lord Throckwaddle) she has lead numerous anti-slavery raids and most famously, she guided the raid at Iringa, which liberated more than 700 slaves. Though not popular with the German Authorities in the area (the infamous tea party incident with Herr Doktor Professor Oberst (Ret.) Sanders) they grudging allow her much latitude in her operations as she is a signatory of the "Alliance" in the Secret War.  Baroness Grete Wölfflin has been assigned by Herr Doktor Professor Oberst (Ret.) Sanders as the Imperial German Liaison to the Anti-Slavery Leauge.

 Lady Prudence Fiona Throckwaddle - Scourge of the Zanzibari and Arab Slavers.

Many a man has regretted getting in the way of Lady Prudence Fiona Throckwaddle of the North Piddle Throckwaddles.  Not only is she from North Piddle and exhibits the eccentricities of that area, but is supposedly the amour of one Captain Nemo. Famous for the tea parties she throws, there is still some controversy about the fried chicken that was served when Herr Doktor Professor Oberst (Ret.) Sanders attended.

Though a formidable - but caring woman, she shows no mercy to slavers.
