Suki Tawdry is a prostitute who appears in the background through all three books of Century. Nearly every one of her lines is sung.

HistoryEdit

1910Edit

When Janni Nemo arrives at the Cuttlefish Hotel, Suki watches as she is harrassed by the hotel's patrons. As she observes their behavior, she sings a song predicting their downfall. Later, when Janni is raped, Suki helps her return to her room. Following Pirate Jenny's attack on the East End, Suki and Jack MacHeath mock the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for arriving too late to actually do anything.

1977Edit

Sometime after Mina Murray's disappearance in 1969, a band called Zuki and the Tawdries appears in the club out of which the League formerly operated.

2009Edit

As Orlando returns to the old League headquarters after being discharged from the army, he hears his former team being derided in a song called "Cannon Rap", sung by "goth icon" Spooky Tawdry.

Source materialEdit

Suki Tawdry is based on the character of the same name from Bertolt Brecht's Threepenny Opera. Nearly all of her songs are versions of songs from the opera, specifically "Pirate Jenny", "What Keeps Mankind Alive?", and "Cannon Song". Also the song at the end of "1969" is a version of a song from the Threepenny Opera - it's a punk version of "The Pimp's Ballad".
