Kim Kyong Hui

Kim Kyong Hui, sister to the outgoing ruler, got a big promotion in Pyongyang Tuesday, putting her at equal standing in North Korea’s nuclear-armed military with the dictator’s youngest son and heir apparent, Kim Jong Un. The new four-star general has a reputation for being a mean drunk, bumping off political rivals, and driving her own daughter to suicide. “She doesn’t have anything in her background to suggest military credentials, It’s a sign that she really must be a player, a critical component of the family’s game plan for maintaining itself in power.” - Philip Shenon
