Pontifidora is a former big-game hunter turned bounty hunter. She was Admiral DeGill's fiancée before turning to a life of crime. DeGill then turned her in to the authorities before running off with a showgirl from the planet Vega. She has never forgiven DeGill for either act, and is determined to have him stuffed and mounted on her wall. In "DeGill & Son", it is revealed that she and DeGill have a son, Bill DeGill.
