Mercy Black is an investigator for the Shadowlight League.

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about her past or present associations (as there be spoilers for my comic there), but I wanted to nail down her design here.

This is as close as I've come so far to introducing an ACTUAL main character in this challenge.

UPDATE: Mercy has made her debut in the pages of the rebooted Autumn Bay. See it here!

Misread the name, was like "Orphan Black? Isn't that a dang TV show?"

But then again, I've been misreading the crap out of your work since the get-go. For example, here (and in many of the Kingsley pages) I detect a distinct "cigarettes are cool" campaign. Obviously the business model of webcomics is totally broken, so I sympathize with the need for product placement. Let's get it out in the open: are you now or have you ever been bankrolled by Big Tobacco?

Nothing beats the arrogance of responding to my own post.

Actually, product placement might not be that bad of an angle--who amongst the artists here wouldn't accept $35k let's be honest, y'all are pure internet cannon fodder $25k/year to draw, draw, draw so long as they prominently featured a particular stable of consumer products? It's like Patreon except with Super-PACs.

Edit: Also, Mercy looks badass. I suspect, however, that "Mercy" is an unfortunate and ironic moniker for someone who has probably thrown a dude off a fire escape.

Further Edit: Oh, I understand who this is now... her actions have already been evident in your pages.

I'm almost sorry to say that I would take a corporate sponsorship IN A HEARTBEAT!!!!

And no, I am not subsidized by Big Tobacco, just fueled by it.

Mercy has not been seen or her actions seen as yet. She was mentioned on this page. She's not even in town at this point.

(I think I might know which actions you were thinking of, and that's a whole different bag of cats.)

She may or may not have been responsible for an explosion at an apartment in 2007... she may have stabbed one or more people with a broken bottle... yeah, she's a bit of a badass (and a heavy smoker and drinker - that life comes with a price in Autumn Bay).
