Desdemona, or Des for short, is Scribble's sister and incestuous lover.
Des has blonde hair and eyes like "juicy plums". She also has a dragon tattoo on her left upper arm.
She obtained an English Voodoo feather by chance, while trying to save a woman from the criminals. Desdemona and her brother ride this feather and during the trip Desdemona takes a Curious Yellow, one of the most dangerous feathers.
She is trapped in it until The Scribble saves her by a swap-back, staying in the Vurt and allowing her to return home.
She finds her way back into the real world and shares a house with Twinkle.
Later on Desdemona supposedly had a male partner.
