** The WordSaladLyrics in "Swallow" ("Low tide and high tea, oyster's waiting for me...") refer to "Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland".
** The titles of "Syringe" and "Face the Wall" are likely a shout-out to the scene in ''Franchise/{{Terminator}} 2'' in which Sarah Connor escapes from the mental institution. She holds the doctor hostage with a syringe in his neck, and orders a guard to face the wall.

'''Emilie Autumn''' Liddell, born September 22 1979, is a {{goth}}ic poet, singer/songwriter, violinist, harpsichordist, performance artist, feminist, and author. She's self-described as that she sounds "[[MindScrew like the best cup of English Breakfast spiked with cyanide and smashed on your antique wallpaper]]." Well, OK then.

Of Emilie's life, [[ShroudedInMyth very little is known at the moment]]. What we do know is that she [[ChildProdigy started playing violin at the age of four]], a talent that she has continued to this day, and that she voluntarily stayed away from most of the mainstream music communities (both classical and commercial) due to bad experiences and clashes within them: In fact, most of her albums were self-published by her own company. Her first album was ''On a Day...'', a classical album released in 2000, when she was 20 or 21. The following year she put out the ''Chambermaid'' and ''By the Sword'' [=EPs=]. In 2003 her first full vocal album was released: ''Enchant'', an album filled with a number of songs inspired by fairy tales. Also contained in this CD was the Enchant Puzzle, which no one has ever solved. This was the Enchant era, when Emilie was a [[FairyCompanion faerie]].

After going through an extremely awful period in her life that resulted in a suicide attempt and institutionalization, she was inspired to move in a different artistic direction. This began with the ''Opheliac EP'', followed by full album ''Opheliac''. This album was far darker than ''Enchant'', and a reflection of Emilie's mental state, as this album was released as an agreement with herself that she'd make the album instead of killing herself. The songs are mostly about madness and suicide, particularly in water. Much of the album is influenced by Creator/WilliamShakespeare, as is made obvious by the title. Many of the songs are not written from the perspective of Emilie, but from [[TheOphelia Ophelia]] herself, the Lady of Shalott, and others. Later in 2007, she re-released ''Enchant'' along with ''A Bit o' This & That'', which was a collection of previously unheard songs, re-mixes and tracks from older [=EPs=]. Also released that year was ''Laced/Unlaced''. ''Laced'' was a re-release of ''On a Day'', while ''Unlaced'' was an all-new collection of instrumental songs done in her newer style. In 2009 she was able to release her autobiography, ''Literature/TheAsylumForWaywardVictorianGirls''. She has also released ''The Opheliac Companion'', which provides [[AllThereInTheManual information and background]] about the songs on ''Opheliac''.

The Opheliac era is what Emilie is most well known for. And from gaining more [[FanCommunityNicknames muffins (fans)]], she was able to make more and more theatrical tours which gained more and more theatrics tour by tour. Joining her on stage in the Asylum are her Bloody Crumpets, a group of [[TheOphelia lovely mad girls]].

In 2012 she released another CD, ''Fight Like a Girl'', which had been lingering in DevelopmentHell for several years. Despite her initial promises that it was going to be "more metal" than ''Opheliac'' was, it ended up being a theatrical concept album based around the fictionalized [[VictorianBritain Victorian]] story that appeared in ''Literature/TheAsylumForWaywardVictorianGirls''. According to Emilie, she intends to use the album as part of the soundtrack to the play she's currently writing about the book. The album has created a BrokenBase in the fandom because of its differences from the highly popular ''Opheliac'', and because the violin plays a much less significant role it in than it had in her previous music. Her current look and shows are generally referred to as the FLAG era by fans.

She appeared in "Film/TheDevilsCarnival", a short experimental film released in 2012 by the creators of Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera -- Creator/DarrenBousman and Creator/TerranceZdunich. Playing the Painted Doll, she starred alongside a ''very'' diverse cast, including Clown from Music/{{Slipnot}}, Creator/AlexaVega, Creator/PaulSorvino and two of her Crumpets, Captain Maggots and Contessa. With the success of the movie, she's due to reappear in subsequent sequels.
