The chief executive secretary to Jeremy Van Dorn, the CEO of the international business conglomerate known as the Consortium, is the exotic Mrs. Litton. Mrs. Litton first arrived on the scene in 1989, when she pulled the strings that controlled Police Captain William Handler and Dennis Grimes. She approached Adam Carrington about joining the Consortium, and convinced him to sell out his own father. As second in command of the Consortium, Mrs. Litton is a powerful figure. She has business savoir-faire and speaks several languages fluently. Mrs. Litton is always on top of things. When Van Dorn botched the plans to destroy the Carringtons and the Colbys, the ever-resourceful Mrs. Litton was there to bail him out. Jeff Colby pointed out that she could be more dangerous than Van Dorn himself.
