HB_bus_smallWhen Raccoon City Police found young HB that day, no one could have imagined that this scrappy little girl in a Tanuki suit would some day destroy the entire city. She grew up to love EZ Cheese and shotguns and was loved by all. After a waffle breakfast gone terribly wrong, zombies infested the land and the locals gave her another name…Angel Thanatos.

But who is she, really? Some say she is the forbidden love child of Batman and Wonder Woman, but one thing is for sure – the power to move cheese with one’s mind is none to be reckoned with. Fitting in no where, HB wandered from town to town; finally living in Silent Hill until a heated argument with Pyramid Head over a poker game sent her storming out. Years past. Hiding from the cops in Liberty City and yearning for adventure, she took a temp job on the USG Ishimura but for reasons her lawyer, Saul Goodman says she cannot discuss, she is living comfortably off of the restitution. Finally, a miracle happened.

One day, the good folks at GirlGamer.com found HB scaring employees at the local Game Stop and rather than send her back to live with the evil Ewoks, they gave her a job, where she ruled benevolently for the next 6 years. HB Duran is now the Editor-in-Chief of VideoGameNewsSource.com, still scares people and rants about Pyramid Head being a no-good cheater.
