Jude Perry is a recurring character in the Magnus Archives. She is an acolyte of The Desolation.
Before dedicating herself to the Desolation, she was a stockbroker. She lived with her then girlfriend at the time and states that she became listless after the thrill of money no longer excited her.
In 1989, she met Agnes Montague, for whom she had romantic feelings, and through her joined The Cult of the Lightless Flame. She then murdered several coworkers and destroyed their lives before eventually dousing herself with petrol and lighting herself on fire in 1991 to complete her transformation into an avatar. (MAG 89)
Like others of the Lightless Flame, her physical body is made of a wax-like material that can be easily molded into different shapes and features. She can cause extreme pain and burns with her touch.
Jude is described as a squat, muscular Asian woman with close-cropped hair. She frequently wears light clothing such as tank tops even in cold weather, and has a large back tattoo of a screaming man who appears wreathed in the fires of hell.
After her transformation in an avatar, her body is now made of a wax-like substance that allows her to mold her appearance however she wants, which means that she looks much younger than she is.
