As part of a new adventure until Wong is found a side plot has been developed. To further this along a new adversary was needed to which The Association to Preserve Animals (Right!) or as the English call them the Mad Taxidermists of Mayfair. This group of women are hell bent on preserving what ever creature than can find, living or dead! Hence they never get invited to tea parties and must socialise amongst their own sorry mad and insular selves, hence the mad part.
This League went with a different direction. A League Perk of Companions (takes one slot, no Sidekick, but all Allies have two abilities) after all Lady Hillary will only accept lackies. Which is not too bad a trade as they all come with two abilities. We'll see how that pans out in the games to come.
The Association to Preserve Animals (Right!)
|Lady Hillary Shtop-Pitt|
Lady Hillary Shtop-Pitt
Lady Hillary is the type of woman mother warned you about. The type you should never marry regardless the dowry she came with. Hillary has gone through two husbands who all died of natural causes while on safari (in Victoria Park). Needless to say she is now a widow for life, a bitter and twisted individual, a man hater to the core whose only joy is preserving whatever animal life has the misfortune to cross her path.

|Miss Earnestine Sorrow|
Miss Earnestine Sorrow
Ernie is a deadly shot, pity it's with a hypodermic needle. Her skills at wrestling creatures and sedating them for preparation is phenomenal. No finer surgeon has been expelled from the Royal Society of Surgeons for the inappropriate interference with a living patient with the intent to stuff and mount for display.

|Miss Gladys Forthwright|
Miss Gladys Forthwright
Gladys was Lady Hillary's nanny, she is nutty as a fruit cake, has bats in the belfry, is one sandwich short of a loaf, it's no wonder that Lady Hillary is herself not a stable individual. Often seen walking her stuffed cat Winston for walks in Hyde Park she scares the bejeebers out of any sane person she stumbles across.

|Miss Imogene Hazelwood|
Miss Imogene Hazelwood
Imogene is the most unladylike of the party. She is into callisthenics, wears men clothes, adopts many manly attitudes which of course doesn't win her many male suitors. She is a plain Jane without any application of makeup, on the one and only time she did make (was forced) to appear as a lady she so stunned society by her beauty she fled the occasion from an anxiety attack never to appear in high society again (much to the disappointment of many promising suitors). Imogene now thinks that hiding as a man will make her problems go away and as joined Lady Hillary more out of survival than a belief in her Association.

|Miss Aileen Friesenhahn|
Miss Aileen Friesenhahn
Aileen is a wanted women in Europe, having escaped across the Channel to England she has found the good graces of Lady Hillary who believes she has found someone who can spread the word of the Association to the benighted heathens of the Continent. Aileen has no interest in this but plays the act, after all her surroundings are so much better than the sanitarium she previously called home.

|Miss Fannie Steinhauer|
Miss Fannie Steinhauer
In every group there is always the person who makes the tea, scones and ultimately cleans up after every taxidermy. Fannie though is not that person, a stern and uncompromising Hanoverian she has been on Lady Hillary's staff almost as long as Nanny Gladys. Her hobbies include beating the stuffing out of anyone slow enough not to get out of her way when she is on the move. Not a woman to upset.
