Bands
  • Célestine String Quartet, classical music ensemble founded by Lisette's mother. Current line-up consists of Lisette, who is one of the original members and is the leader of the quartet. The rest of the line-up are other CIA spies. The quartet is all-female, and they all specialize in playing CIA-issued electric string instruments. The Célestine String Quartet is a front used by the CIA in their cultural war against the Soviets.
