Who are is that? Where are they? What are they doing?

Why not Showcase Characters in Wondrous lands and the amazing things they do?

Do you have times when you say "Why did they do that?" whether good or bad.
OR even "Wow!" or "What did they do?"
The what could be a question or something surprising or even shocking.
Then we have the times where the characters have done something you like or even don't like.

This can help me show case these few times or even to share something different (in the world I'm in) to share a strength of a character.

Tonya Tiresias, or TT for short - she is one person Joe Dante meets in his journey through the different levels of Hell, and travels with him for a short time.

She is to be residing with others of the same sin, tending to their duties on one of the many circle levels of Hell, hers is the 8th Circle in the 4th bolgia.  But this is not where Joe meets her the first time.

There is something different about TT, almost backwards.  Well, she is backwards... Her head is turned so she is seeing from her back.  This is one of the punishments for her sin.  So TT walks backwards, with grace, for all eternity in Hell.  So, what was her sin... you will just have to try the book.

I found the punishment for the sins interesting and ironic in this book so far.  TT's was an ironic one, that just stuck with me.

This sounds interesting. Guess: She never looked forward in life, only in the past. :)

Fun meme.
