Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. "Pardon, O King," cried the little Mouse: "forgive me this time, I shall never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?" The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Some time after the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight in which the Lion was, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. "Was I not right?" said the little Mouse.

Little friends may prove great friends.

The Lion And The Mouse - Aesop's Fables

Zoe Porter Ford is the head curator for the Zarek Group, heir to the Porter fortune, and maintains a chair on the Zarek Group Board Of Directors that she shares with her husband, Eliot Ford.

Character History:

Zoe Porter was never much for dealing with the outside world, but things came to enough of a head that she was more or less forced to. When things started to go really bad for Daniel Linderman, he managed to successfully appeal to Kain Zarek and Eliot Ford to watch out for Zoe and keep her out of all the troubles. After Daniel was convicted, Zoe was on the short list of people who were permitted visitation before his execution.

Linderman arranged for a transfer of as many shares as it took to those that Zoe already owned in her family financial portfolio to secure her a seat on the board of the Linderman Group; those shares then became Zarek Group. Eliot Ford, realizing he could both fulfill his promise to Linderman and gain considerable net profit in one fell swoop, used his considerable Evolved charm to court Zoe and marry her, giving him access to the Porter family assets. For the comfortable life and two children he's since given her, Eliot considers it a fair trade. Zoe remains oblivious to his numerous extramarital affairs, though it may be that she does so purposefully. It's hard to miss it when your husband is screwing the nanny.

Zoe continues as head curator of the Zarek Group's archives, which are considerable, and continues in her efforts at many of New York's finest museums, as well as devoting her time to her children. Though Eliot actively fills their seat on the Zarek Group board of directors, generally if her view on an issue is adamant enough to push past Eliot's general capacity for charm, he will at least give consideration to her viewpoint. And Kain still calls her Spooky. Sigh.

Evolved Human Ability:

Zoe's ability has evolved significantly in the past ten years. Her range of time to view in more detail has expanded to include anything roughly five years older or more, though again with increasing detail the older an item is. Anything less than five years old will be very, very vague and limited in detail. Zoe can also now extend her vision to one other person, requiring contact with both the object she is reading and the person in question.

Eliot Ford is Zoe's husband, which early in their marriage sometimes had Zoe waking up in the mornings in complete disbelief. Time and children have made her a wiser person, and while she loves Eliot - his ability makes her unable to not love him, truthfully - the things he's always done that she's never minded so much before are starting to make her feel surprisingly dissatisfied and perhaps even angry.

Trivia and Notes:

  • Zoe's oldest child is a boy, Daniel Ford, age 7. Her second child is a girl, Parker Ford, age 5.
  • Sample.
