Profile Information

Introduction
Greetings, I am Lady Verda. And I will forever introduce myself as that! I am a con-goer and I much enjoy being out and about in the world! I am in love with a Mad Scientist and do a good amount of mechanic work for him, I am of good class in the science community and my father was famous for his work with machines, without the help of my father, the love of my life would have never exploded his experiments into my life! <3

The Mad Scientist doesn't know it yet but he's going to be involved in a wedding!
