Insulin is a minor fictional character in the Wild Cards series of books.
Insulin was among the Astronomer's group of aces in 1986 when the Astronomer plotted a number of assassinations against the aces that had defeated him some months earlier. Insulin and Imp operated together as partners in the Astronomer's mad scheme and their target was to be the Turtle. Insulin's role had her interfere with the Turtle's blood sugar levels from long range while Imp attacked from a hang glider.
Later that same day, Imp, Insulin, and Demise captured three women to use as human sacrifices to fuel the Astronomer's power. One of them, Cordelia Chaisson, proved to be a latent whose ace turned in the heat of the moment, and Demise used the distraction to attack Insulin and the Astronomer. He knocked Insulin out of the fight with two hard blows to the chin.
Wild Card TraitsEdit
Insulin can interfere with the blood sugar levels of another person, pacifying them, inducing nausea, or even unconsciousness. Most of her targets were at fairly close ranges within her line of sight, but her attack on the Turtle may have been able to target him, an obscured target, within his shell at quite an extreme range, although in that particular case she didn't send him into unconsciousness.
Insulin is described as an attractive middle-aged woman.
