Brigid O’Shaughnessy, Phyllis Nordlinger, Walter Huff, and Helen Grayle are my top nominees for Employee of Eternity, they will be wonderful asset to Hell,Inc. and its mission.

With the women, their similarities are their immaculate skills in seducing, manipulating, and lying, using their bodies and looks to get men to kill for them or protect them from the law.

..., Helen Grayle is my favorite and I feel she would bring so much demonic presence to Hell, Inc. she did not murder any children. Therefore I must award the position to Phyllis Nordlinger. The choice was not easy but Phyllis is dedicated to death and the values of evil. I can gladly say she qualifies for every aspect of Hell, Inc. plus adding the perfect psychopathic essence.
