Watchmen Wiki

Linette Paley was an avant-garde composer best known for Suction Cups for Strings.


Linette Paley disappeared from the public in 1983, approximately two months after the disappearance of Max Shea. Because Paley suffered from depression and suicidal tendencies, the disappearance came not as a surprise to the general public, but New Frontiersman connected it with the disappearance of Shea and other creative figures around the same time.[1]

Paley was taken to the Veidt's island to work with the other vanished creatives on a secret project. When a cargo ship affiliated with Pyramid Deliveries came to take them back to the mainland, she smiled, which Shea took notice of. Paley was killed along with the others from a bomb that was planted on the ship.[2]
