Aquarius 15. A geisha applying her makeup.

The Geisha known as Koonara was said to be nearly 2oo years old.  Few have ever seen her without her makeup, and those who have in secret caught a glimpse of her without it say her face is ancient, covered with the deep scars of time and mottled like the back of a lizard.  But Koonara was the lover of the famous Alchemist Zaroth, who bequeathed to her a large store of magic makeup which, when she carefully applies it creates the perfect illusion of youth.

And even though she has been glimpsed by servants hobbling slowly around her courtyard sometimes in the predawn, when she performs the makeup seems to also restore the youthful powers of her body, making her lithe and graceful in all her movements.
