Aeon isn't to wealthy, is she?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
Her place is pretty Spartan, don't you think? Dressed in her "civilian" clothes, she doesn't seem that extraordinary. I don't have the H-File so I was wondering who "feeds" Aeon? I understand she isn't employed by the Monican government because there isn't any and nor is there a "secret service" of any kind. Or does she make her money working for both sides?

She probably works for whoever can get in touch with her.
In "Isthmus Crypticus" Ilbren was going to give her a valise full of cash to find the seraphtrev.

Aeon Flux is obviously a "mercenary". (of course not)

Aeon was left a tidy inheritance by her Aunt Mildred, an eccentric frozen food heiress.

--Good to have these mysteries cleared up!
BTW: In analyzing the Breen state and Aeon's personal philosophy regarding freedom: ("No one can make me do anything)"... I've come to believe she may feel that "Labor produces not only commodities....it produces itself and the worker as a commodity"~Karl Marx. Hence: few paychecks=sparse apartment=freedom from ownership by things. (But then it's always good to have the Aunt Millie backup as well). Thanks for the confirmation of my suspicions. What scripts!

Aunt Mildred, that was a good one. Oops, it was apparently the truth.
-- Vercingetorix (firstname.lastname@example.org), July 04, 2001.
Ah, but Aeon seemed to turn her nose up at the idea of Una living off of frozen eelsticks...
Peter, your explanation is flawed! ;)
