Sorta the working model for the entire Turner Organization...

Callie's cool for delivering lines like the one she zinged at Rexx Shard after his

"What's the matter? I thought Diamonds were a Girl's Best Friend!" line.

Her reply:

"I don't like the setting!"

Heh. She's direct, doesn't sugar-coat everything, but is unmistakably honest and
forthright as a result. Politicians have to do a lot of handshakes and baby-kissing;
neither of which is up Callie's particular street...that's what Manx is there for.
I'm sure that their particular "understanding" is mimicked in thousands of City Halls across
the world.

Yup. Callie is one of the "behind the scenes people" that pull the strings which make
things happen. Manx is just the puppet on stage; he's all you see, but doesn't really
control his own destiny to any degree!
