When you don’t want to give your real name why not use a fancy title? It adds a mysterious air to one’s presence. Especially if you don’t tell people you got the idea from a cheesy movie from the late 22nd century which itself was a remake of a movie from the early 22nd century. Needless to say, the Countess doesn’t want you knowing her business. And before you even ask, she’s not a failed actress that inadvertently took over a gang of thugs on bravado and bluff.
