The Genetrix (Niobe Winslow)

Created by: Ian Tregillis

Niobe has a large, thick tail-like ovipositor. When she has sex the ovipositor is stimulated and lays a clutch of two to four eggs that quickly hatch into miniature and short-lived homonculi. These homonculi, Niobe’s children, are always either an ace, a deuce, or a joker (with the great majority being either aces or deuces, in contrast to normal wild card odds). Any vaginal sex will cause Niobe to create new homonculi, regardless of the fertility of herself or her male partner.
