Christine is an undercover operative. She is also the leader of a group of feminists called ITS CLAWS. These are not ordinary ‘terrorists’. They could be more closely identified with the Suffragette movement from the early 20th century: they’re authority resisters.
Christine is on a mission. It’s called Mission: Nevergreen. Her job is to get close to Evergreen and ‘decapitate the beast’. But she’s an amateur, and she makes mistakes, including falling in love with him. “Shocking, isn’t it?”
In the end, she realizes that he has won her over, but as always it doesn’t end well.
(Salome and the head of John the Baptist would be a twist to the tale.)
