Quandary Resolution 1528
psychopomp, bait and switch, friable, behemoth
The Lee Circle Ripper never thought of herself as a murderer, but rather as a psychopomp (in the tradition of the Valkyries perhaps, guiding people to a well-deserved afterlife, often to the accompaniment of fair amount of blood and what you might call battle cries), taking particular joy in "guiding" those whose greed and stupidity, combined with a certain friableness of ethical framework, disposed them to fall readily for her classic bait-and-switch, wherein the lure of riches suddenly turned into a deathtrap, an offer they couldn't refuse, especially after they first laid eyes on her, whose behemoth shadow enveloped them as she lumbered into the room and invariably prompted them to give her most of their money, although it was often touch-and-go to see if they could write the check before they died.
