Tristane's backstory is finally emerging... she is the product of a CF-18 woman's one-night-stand with a Phantom. She was brought up by her mother in Quebec and went to the States to seek work, eventually winding up as a door girl at the Conelrad club. She's famous for swearing fluently in both of Canada's official languages.
And Quebecois profanity is a unique animal all its own. In fact, French-Canadian dialect sounds a bit like old 17th-century French to the continental French people. Quebecois street slang -- Joual - is filthy but loads of fun.
