Acid Vanilla is an agent with APC.
If that sounds like an official government agency and she is an official operative with said agency, I have correctly misled you. It is decidedly not and she is definitely, absolutely not an operative.
APC stands for Annihilation Pest Control which was the name chosen by the owner and founder, Beowulf Caesar. He started the company to fulfill a need he saw for a reputable, reliable extermination business that would be manned by only the best men and women dedicated to handle any removal assignment with true professionalism and efficiency. Caesar is quite serious about that and as time goes by and the company prospers, he is able to sit proudly knowing that his customers come to him knowing he and his team will provide exactly the service they request.
That service is, as you have guessed, killing people.
Normally I would not be including in this compendium a hitman, or hitwoman as in this case, even if that person works for an organization, especially one that sounds like the commercial enterprise like its name was supposed to. But the activities of its best assassin, calling her like she thinks of herself, touch more than a few times on targets that would qualify her for membership had she been working for a government and not a private enterprise.
Acid Vanilla is not the real name of this person, which will come as no surprise to anyone. She started life as Alice Vandella. If you looked at her juvenile rap sheet you would see not a hardened criminal but a dangerous psychotic who needed being put away after a horrific murder. You would be mistaken there, though. Horrific yes but murder no but then the law is not always justice and Vandella got sent to youth prison at age 15 for killing someone in self defense and unfortunately learned that to stay alive and reasonably safe she had to learn how to kill again.
Which made her, at age 18, exactly the kind of person that Caesar (not his real name, either, I am sure) was looking for and so a new career is "chosen" and a new name taken and Acid Vanilla is born.
