Elizabeth Penrose

Description: Female, Human, Asian, young, short. Multiple identities, each brilliant, with variations in hair style, dress, and vocal mannerisms. [Buf].

When Conroy first meets Miss Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ Penrose, she is the clipboard carrying assistant to Wada Corp exec Glenn Andrews Andrews. As the story goes on he ‘meets’ her sisters Lisa, & Bess. (triplets?)

It isn’t until later on that the reader figures out that Penrose suffers from multiple personality disorder. At least five ‘sisters’ are mentioned by name, and there are others.

Elizabeth: Sneaky. Handles Conroy’s business affairs. Described as smart, pragmatic would walk away if the stakes were too high. A Lawyer. Only Betsy calls Conroy ‘boss’. In her own mind, she is 29, blonde and on the board of Regents for the University of Washington. She has a tattoo of a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay that circles her left wrist. It slowly becomes visible when she is in control of Penrose though some psychosomatic quirk of multiple identities. At the end of the novel Buffalito Destiny, Conroy has signed over all rights to his company Buffalogic Inc to her.

Lisa: Smart. Psychologist, Behavioral Scientist, not a clinician, buffalo dog specialist. Has panic attacks under stress. Degrees in behavioral psychology and deontology. Speaks in a light Irish trill and wears her hair ties up off her neck.

Bess: Practical. Handles all the high stress jobs. A trouble shooter and problem solver. Describes herself as being the eldest, and says she is more than twice Conroy’s age. Age 83. Only comes to see Conroy at dawn. In the five years since first meeting Penrose, Conroy has had at least four dawn meeting with Bess. She is a harbinger of bad news. Bess has a white cane, and is blind, lost her sight due to cataracts decades before her other personalities had even been born. Doesn’t use a first name or a title, preferring to be addressed as Penrose. Likes things ‘just so’. Scares the crap out of Conroy. None of her other personalities like her, and at least two of them are afraid of her. Always speaks quickly and simply.

Eliza: Idealistic. Excited, unbridled enthusiasm. Wears ridiculously heeled shoes. Sixteen years old, and acts it. A systems biologist, and the shyest of the personalities. She’s the only Penrose that can loom over Conroy’s desk, despite the fact that he makes her nervous somehow. (school-girl crush?)

Elly: Angry. Scowls and shouts insults at Conroy. Always enters his office without knocking. Doesn’t work for Conroy, and hates him for monopolizing her and her ‘sisters’. Want’s out. Doesn’t care much for Bess either, calls her a bitch. Rants and Rages and slams doors. Elly is responsible for leaking the whereabouts of the breeders and their fertile buffalito pups to the Arconi, who in turn seize the animals and effectively shut down Buffalogic Inc.
