Christine Summerfield was an artificially created human from a bottle universe who joined Faction Paradox as Cousin Eliza.


Christine was created in a bottle universe and named "Christine Summerfield" after Bernice Summerfield and her creator Chris Cwej. Her memories were taken from a "blonde girl" from the 1970s, who had lost her virginity at the age of 15 and had an interest in serial killers like Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson. She was fascinated with the supernatural, often visiting the seer Lady Diamond.

Following the Great Houses' invasion of the bottle universe's Earth, Christine left the bottle universe and entered the main universe. After being dropped off on Ordifica, Christine visited a number of colony worlds including Shristostophon, Gardener's World, Hai Dow Seven, Lubellin, Shatner's Climax, and Ultra Caprisis. Christine later visited the ruins of the abandoned Homeworld, where she wrote most of her journal before heading towards Dellah. (PROSE: Dead Romance)

In a letter to Bernice Summerfield, Christine said she'd taken a post at a university on Vremnya. (PROSE: Twilight of the Gods)

Christine joined Faction Paradox and took on the name Eliza. She said she picked it because of My Fair Lady and because it was the name of one of Jack the Ripper 's victims; she described herself as a "born victim." (AUDIO: The Eleven Day Empire)

Little Sister Eliza was in the Eleven-Day Empire when Little Brother Porsena joined, and explained to him that it was only blackened by soot because the original London was. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...)

Cousin Eliza was quoted for the Faction Paradox entry of The Book of the War. (PROSE: Faction Paradox)

She survived the destruction of the Eleven-Day Empire with Cousin Justine and planned to save the surviving members of the Faction from Lolita. (AUDIO: The Eleven Day Empire, The Shadow Play)

To prevent Sutekh from gaining control of the Osirian Court, Eliza became Horus by allowing the consciousness of Osiris to control her body so he could make his claim to the throne. (AUDIO: Ozymandias) Sutekh challenged Horus to a fight to the death to settle the claim. To convince Sutekh that he would win the battle, Horus allowed Justine to fatally wound her. (AUDIO: The Judgment of Sutekh)

Behind the scenes[]

Another twentysomething Faction recruit. Born and raised in the twentieth century, so more relaxed than Justine (but probably just as messed-up). London girl. Closer to Justine than anyone else, although that isn't saying much. Seems to have very little faith in the Faction's methods. Goes along with them anyway. Unwilling to risk stepping out of line, despite a noticeable cynical streak.
