Lucy Butler

Lucy Butler in her human form.

Lucy Butler was the female persona of a demon that Frank Black had several encounters with between 1997 and 1999. Butler would sometimes also appear as a long-haired man, as well as in "her" true demon form.

Black first encountered Butler after she helped her husband Ephraim Fabricant escape from a hospital where he was undergoing surgery to have one of his kidneys removed and given to his sister. Butler removed Fabricant's other kidney and it was somehow placed in the refrigerator in the Black's house. Butler later appeared to Catherine Black in her male appearance. She later appeared to Bob Bletcher, interchanging between her female form and demon form. Bletcher was killed soon after. ("Lamentation")

Butler seemingly continued a tradition of kidnapping young adults who were average students, but had great potential, a tradition that had been going on since 1911 and probably long before. She would imprison them in small rooms and play Love Is Blue over and over again. She tortured and murdered a Millenium group member named Jonathon Olsen who was in charge of monitoring her, gaining access to his files and over a period of six months gave false reports about her whereabouts and activities. Due to Black's intuition and persistence, a majority of Butler's latest captives (a total of 25 young adults) were saved, but Butler once more eluded Black. ("A Room With No View")

By 1999, Butler was working as the nanny for John Saxum, Una Saxum and their daughter Divina Saxum. ("Antipas")
