Pontifidora the Conquistadora (Carolyn Hay) is a former big-game hunter turned bounty hunter. She was Admiral DeGill's fiancée before turning to a life of crime (apparently caused by him running off with a showgirl from the planet Vega). DeGill then turned her in to the authorities. She has never forgiven DeGill for either act, and is determined to have him stuffed and mounted on her wall. Her constant companion is her pet sneazel, Hector, a hissing alien weasel who rides on her shoulder and attacks her enemies.
She and DeGill have a son named Bill, whom she once tried to use to get revenge on his father. As DeGill was unaware of him, it's likely he was concieved before he left her.
