Appearance
Adrianna has an hourglass figure, and will always wear clothing to accentuate her body shape. She appreciates accessories just as much as fashion and will often wear museum-quality jewelry and furs in addition to her tailored designer wardrobe.

Her eyes are lavender and hair is naturally platinum blond, though it is often dyed various shades for both aesthetics and disguise.

Background
Adrianna Covrenzi is the adopted child of Lord William Talvis IV (her biological uncle), a British lord of mixed Hungarian descent. He is best known for his contributions to the world as a naturalist, but was also rumored to be a descendant of Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed.

Much of Adrianna's childhood was spent travelling to exotic locations with her adopted father, and it was during these times that she developed a love for collecting artifacts - amongst other skills. When Adrianna was thirteen, a boating accident in the Amazon left her father unable to walk. Lord William returned to The United Kingdom and Adrianna was sent to Switzerland to attend boarding school and formal training in finishing school. She did not receive particularly high marks in any subject, but was often the star of athletic teams, most notably fencing and javelin throwing. In her last year of school, Lord William Talvis passed away, leaving her with a sizable inheritance.

Adrianna never finished her studies, and at 21 married Counte Covrenzi, taking his name and title, as well as moving to his family home in Castello di Tenebra. Only two years later, the Counte passed away in an unfortunate sailing accident. Contessa was on vacation in Egypt at the time.

Personality
Ambitious, intelligent, and highly opportunistic, Contessa is often seen as reckless and unbearably haughty. She insists on being impeccably dressed, and is often obsessed with her own physical appearance.

She enjoys the tango, javelin throwing, big game hunting, and big game hunting with a javelin.

Aspirations
Adrianna spends much of her time tirelessly collecting items for her personal museum. She is addicted to conquest.


It was during her years in finishing school that she befriended an American student named Morgan Cedesina. Both were to advance their language skills, among other learning opportunities. Together, the two aided one another towards the accomplishment of each other's goals. They got along brilliantly, until the necessary parting of ways.

Years later, they would meet again under vastly different circumstances. Morgan was a representative of International Law, while Adrianna sought to control her wealth by keeping her uncle from funding a madman named Gunnar Maelstrom.

Convincing the younger woman to help her, Adrianna promised to use her funds to turn whatever was left of Maelstrom's organization into a non-profit charity. Morgan, however, had other plans. The blonde and the brunette eventually came to an agreement. For success, there must be both waves and undercurrent.

After the eventful arrest of Gunnar Maelstrom, a mysterious Carmen Sandiego began to take his place... and slowly changed all aspects of his previous structures. Behind the new passionate young mastermind was a seemingly unending cache of funds. At the same time, in the civilian sector, another entrepreneur was rising. After the untimely death of her uncle, Adrianna Covrenzi began purchasing several companies and funding startups; using her connections to create a different sort of foothold for her half of the empire.

How did Adrianna and Counte Covrenzi meet?
Oh yes, it was love at first sight! We met at a social function, a gala dinner at the home of Enzo Ferrari's nephew, one of them, at any rate. We hit it off because we were both passionately charitable. Our favourite pastime, truly, donating to the poor.

Counte Santo Covrenzi was a friend of the family. Adrianna had known him to be extremely wealthy and a once savvy businessman who recently lost both his heirs to racing accidents. While she was quite fond of her husband, even tolerating the fact that he often called her "Donna", it was a primarily passionless marriage.

When you said Contessa was buying up companies and making investments, who recommended the investments? Did you have a friend or a committee or something that helps make these decisions?

I totally love the backstory that VILE started because two really smart women got together and played different roles to help each other. Like, makes me Yeeeee!

My question is, why didn't Adrianna don the red coat and hat? What happened during that process, if anything at all?

My best friend @Morgan helps, how could she not? And yes there is now an investment committee, but back in the early days, we made our own educated decisions based on research.

The coat and hat was an exclusively tactical play. Red is also among the hardest hues to see at night, especially from a distance. The woman who planned that, wore it. I prefer Dior Haute Couture, direct from the Maison. But in case you do wonder, I have worn that coat and hat on several occasions. We're practically twins, she and I.

Oh, a fellow parkour junkie. I think this might be fun, no matter what side you end up going with.

Yay my big sister

I find it suspicious that all the 'Happy Birthday Contessa' wishes are coming from ACME agents...
