She also rides a doomed Art Deco party train and goes to sea with Captain Magnanimous and the HMS Valiant. All this while being hotly pursued by the Daughters of the Founding Fathers Preservation Society, and Pirate Captain Steele the Inevitable, captain of the most deadly pirate ship this side of the equator – The Ironic Gentleman!
