Bio: Well let the fires burn bright throughout the night, for the Arsonist is here to stay. Eleanor Krieghoff has been revelled as far more than just the loving wife of Mortimer Junior and whats worse is that she is none other than a Jamestown, thus proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the two crime families are more than allies they are directly connected through marriage and now blood. I can now see why the Krieghoffs suddenly exploded in power and control and with the direct Jamestown influence fuelling their coffers the Krieghoffs where more than capable of stealing control of Lynnwood and then Seattle. Are far city is now directly controlled by the two most influential and powerful criminal syndicates to ever exist and it wont be long before Seattle suffer the consequences of voting the lovable Uncle Morty into office. he has already used his executive powers to manipulate the internal structure of Seattle Police Departments Police Prescient One and even has authorised the likes of the Digger, Gargoyle, Avenger, and Silencer to be officers of the law. Now add in the fact that his wife is none other than the dreaded Arsonist and one grandmother that I would never dare to cross, for she doesn’t bake cookies and pies; no this Krieghoff bakes people and property as a brutal message and warning to never cross a Krieghoff.
Another scary connection is that Eleanor is the older sister of Oliver McKeen and thus shows just how deep this web of corruption goes, the influence of these families courses deep within the entire structure of Seattle and the Krieghoffs won’t stop till they have us all tightly wrapped up in a nice box and under their thumb. The Arsonist needs to not be sitting within Krieghoff manner and the Mayors Office but rotting within a cell or hanging from a gallows with her neck snapped and stretched for this runner has brutally murdered countless innocents and torched millions of credits worth of property some with trapped tenants still inside. She used to work directly alongside Bonfire until she considered his work to be to tame, and even scoffs at the work of Holiday, Chimney and Barbecue who are the premier firebugs of Seattle. This means that she is not above getting her hands quite dirty and doesn’t care how many victims are trapped and burning alive.
If this wasn’t bad enough she is also quite skilled in martial and ballistic weapons and is not afraid to let people know that Grandma is packing a DAOD under that house coat. Arsonist’s first reaction to settle an argument is to draw and fire, or activate the custom vibro-sours system and gut the target like a fish; she has been trained in the secret family arts of gun fighting and is well versed in all forms of survival knowledge, so she can truly gut you like a fish with ease and precision. Though the Arsonist prefers her beloved fire to destroy and terrorise, as she feels that fire is a wonderful weapon for it’s an cruel and predictable mistress, and following the basics of chemistry and fire science she can cause the most destruction in the least amount of time. Though the far more frighting part about the Arsonist is the specialised automatic pistol she carries under her coat and I am not talking about the DAOD (though that is one intimidating piece); no I am speaking about the weapon that she had custom made to handle the specialised ammunition that she created. This weapon deploys high calibre APDS shells that pack a very nasty surprise once they pierce armour and skin, the casing is concealing a miniature thermite charge that will ignite anything it touches and causes extreme pain and damage upon impact.
According to one witness the Arsonist even carries that pistol under her church dress and even asked the assistant pastor to hold it while she was being handed her grandson after his baptism. This is one bad ass granny and one that I wish was not sitting as the Mayors wife and having direct influence over the young minds of Seattle as well as being looked up to as a role model by many young women. We are still uncovering information about the Jamestowns and do to there deep cover web, it will be a long and tiring process but we have found three directly and a few connected through marriage, so when we have more information on their internal network and what role Eleanor plays we will report further.
Though as a Krieghoff we know that she is the direct second to Uncle Morty and like all good wives she just remains secluded in the shadows, being seen but not heard. The Arsonist portrays herself as your typical warm loving housewife, though don’t be fooled she is all monster all the time; this is the sister of the Beast and Havoc meaning that whatever created them created her and the apple doesn’t fall from the tree. She is a Jamestown first and foremost and we know one thing about them, they are chameleons and extremely dangerous so Never Under Estimate this grandmother; she is not your normal politicians wife, she is far more dangerous, cunning and manipulative than any socialite.
Eleanor has been exposed as far more than we believed and what scares me is that she is always inches from the pardon pad, the death warrant log and one sweet kiss from convincing her beloved to spare a friend from the gallows or send an enemy to them instead. Eleanor knows how to play the political game as well as any seasoned politician and she know has direct access to manipulating who lives and who hangs. The Krieghoffs may own Seattle but the Jamestowns have control over the prison system do to Oliver having married Warden Clark’s sister Sophia, this is a scary connection and one that will come full circle as last pieces of the Jamestown Krieghoff web gets woven around Seattle. So be careful when dealing with Eleanor for she is a spiteful and vindictive women that will do anything to remain in power and as well protect her family from harm, best be polite and respectful when dealing with the Arsonist for she has no soul, no moral compass and just plays lip service about being a faithful Christian.
