Mrs Tachyon is the local baglady of Blackbury. She pushes a shopping cart filled with black plastic bags wherever she goes. She has been an old lady for ages...

A Tachyon is a theoretical faster than light particle, which a neutrino may be an example... As it moves faster than light, it must also move backwards in time, and is therefore a staple for sci-fi writers everywhere who want to add some quantum physics into their novels.
