Daphne's first days living in Manhattan include a few job opportunities, including one from a blast from her past — the man who wanted to study her like a guinea pig offers her a paying gig. Hey, that rhymed! (These logs are from the Prior Incarnation of Daphne, played by Gillian.) daphne_volume05.jpg
daphne_volume06.jpg Daphne begins to make tentative friendships and gets to play hero to one pastor. (These logs are from the Prior Incarnation of Daphne, played by Gillian).
After some time away from Manhattan, Daphne's return is met with strange dreams leading to even stranger realities. She finds friends (and possibly more) in strange places, and helps forge a battle against the strange entity controlling the dreams of slumbering New Yorkers. daphne_volume08.jpg
daphne_volume09.jpg The Nightmare Man has been defeated — or at least that part of the Oneiromancer is put to rest. The future is uncertain: Will Daphne continue to try to play hero, or will the secrets and conflicts revealed by the Nightmare Man keep Corbin and her from furthering their friendship?
After surviving the Evolved flu and the Great Storm of 2010, not to mention *Nazis* in a side trip to 1945, Daphne Millbrook is eager to get her life and joie de vivre back — despite Hiro Nakamura's warnings that the worst is yet to come. daphne_volume10.jpg
With November 8 rushing forward, the city of New York endeavors to change the fates and dooms that were revealed to so many in the visions back in June. Daphne finds herself enlisted in a myriad of ways to try to help others, despite her desire to stay out of trouble. daphne_volume11.jpg
After attempting to help save New York City from the envisioned future, Daphne continues to use her ability to do good for others besides herself, including one cross-country trip that she'll come to regret later. Isn't that always the case? daphne_volume12.jpg
daphne_volume13.jpg Altruism is said to have its rewards — Daphne hasn't found those yet. Captured by the Institute, imprisoned in Eltingville, and held captive by robots, the speedster's spirit is nearly broken..
November 8 comes once again, unsurprisingly with violence and change for those who are captive in Eltingville. daphne_volume14.jpg

  • "Tell me a name I know, Diego, because no offense, yours doesn't have any clout with me just yet. Who told you about me and what I do, because it's not like I've been advertising or throwing my business card in the jars they put out for free lunches at the diners, you know?"" ~ To Diego in Richest Bum in the City
  • "And I'm not 30-something, Sharkbait. Always aim for younger than the person looks when throwing around a range, and if you say you did, I'll have to test out my new nunchuks on your nether regions, got it?" ~ To Kendall in Decoy and Bait
  • "Just don't use it all on hookers and blow, ya hear?" ~ To Kendall in Decoy and Bait
  • "My carbon footprint is, like, non-existant." ~ To Corbin in Cheesecake Benefits
  • "I'm not a muse, G-Force. And I don't have ambition either. Or goals. I take a job because it either sounds like fun or a challenge or because the money is good. I take something I like because it's pretty or I think it'll go with my couch. It's not ambition. I just like my power and I use it for selfish means. That isn't you." ~ To Magnes in A Muse of Selfishness
  • "A unicorn? What, are we going to sparkle the Nightmare Man to death?" ~ Daphne to Logan. "What are you going to do, sass him to death?" ~ Logan to Daphne, in Behind You
  • "…maybe your fairy horse will come galloping back and your pin-up nurse, too, and you can be all virile and powerful cocky male once more, but we're not going to get anywhere sitting here. Let's go, Prince Charming." ~ To Logan in Behind You
  • "Life did this to me," Daphne snaps back. "I'm like this. This is me. Before I was special, I was special ed." ~ to Magnes in Between Reason and Delirium

First met him when he wanted to experiment on her when her speed first kicked in. She doesn't trust him, but is willing to do some work for his money.

Diego hired her to go recover his notebook of contacts from his old apartment, and introduced her to his dog Capone. This might be the start of an amusing friendship, if not a beautiful one.

This near-twin runs a security consultation firm. Daphne stops in for some information, though for purposes other than those she gives.

The gravitokinetic hired Daphne to gather information on the street drug Refrain before disappearing to save the world. She'll take his money as long as he keeps offering jobs, which he seems wont to do.

Not her business, but his. Daphne visited him when she came down with the "Evo-Flu" and he was kind enough to offer use of a pair of crutches for free. She also recognized him from his voice in the nightmares.


The free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wings in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
can seldom see through his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with fearful trill
of the things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.

~Maya Angelou
