The codename Dahlia was originally supposed to have was “Black Widow”. This was before I found out that there was a Marvel character by the same name -and before the said character became intensely popular through the Avengers franchise...

dahlia and black widow interesting resonance with the black dahlia murder, a famous 1947 unsolved murder in la. elizabeth short was the victim of a horrific mutilation and murder. among many disturbing details, the body was cut in half at the waist and given a glasgow smile. think the grin of the joker's victims only produced with a knife. short was a pretty ordinary woman, but the press, besides posthumously giving her the 'black dahlia' nickname, sensationalized her as a black widow style adventuress. there have been books, songs, and at least one movie about the case, and there were at least sixty (false) confessions. if you don't plan to eat soon, check out 'black dahlia' on wikipedia.

@bil: Dahlia's lengthy fingers have a hard, gummy-like texture. Her "nails" are not sharp (she doesn't even really have nails). I'm sure she'd find a way to manage typing. :)

@anatman: I have heard of the Black Dahlia murder, though I've never looked into it! It sounds quite interesting. I do believe the "Black Dahlia" name influenced me when I named my character the second time around. I actually remember googling "Dahlia" and feeling glad that the flower could actually be of the same purple colour as my character's hair, lol.
