Rolling In The D
Trollish employee of the Detroit City Government
Quote: “No, I’m afraid that’s NOT sufficient to demonstrate certification. You’ll need to fill out Form GN249-B(1)(k) for that.”
Background: Flo has worked for the City of Detroit at the Department of Buildings, Safety Engineering, and Environment for nearly four decades. Her anal-retentive attention to detail, excellent memory of volumes of useless information, and her uncanny ability to calmly stare down even the most irate customer has made her indispensable to the bureau’s inner workings. In fact, Flo has spent year after patient year hoarding knowledge for herself, making certain that the bureau could not possibly survive without her. No one in the City of Detroit gets a permit to build anything inside city limits if without Flo’s tacit approval.
Appearance: Flo is short and badly overweight, with kinky hair, a wide mouth rimmed with fleshy lips, crooked teeth, and an obvious mustache.
