And now, a dose of infamy. There's barely anyone in the universe of The Slayers
who doesn't know the name "Lina Inverse" and run screaming in the opposite direction when they hear it. No surprise why: her grasping greed, her hot-headed flights of fancy and her utterly

Few characters walk such a fine line between being both insufferable and inexplicably charismatic.
