Carmen Sandiego is the inter-galactic crime overlord and femme fatale in charge of the Villains' International League of Evil. Her favorite author is Ursula K. Le Guin, her favorite astronomer is Nicholas Copernicus, and her favorite food is Earth cuisine.
No longer satisfied with the riches on Earth, Carmen has fashioned her empire into a network of criminal franchises on nine Planet, twenty moons, and the outer ring of Saturn. With underlings doing all the dirty work, Carmen mostly kicks back and lives the good life. She flies mach-10 spaceships for sport, indulges in mud baths at health spas throughout the galaxy, and eats chocolate-covered cherries while personal valets give her foot massages every afternoon at three.
Inspired by the writings of Ursula K. Le Guin, Carmen recently recruited an outlandish collection of crooks. Her gang members now come from the four corners of the universe, but unfortunately, no two of them speak the same language, so heist coordination has become a real pain in the neck lately.
