Rand, Nila. Nila Rand was created by “Beech Allen,” the pseudonym of Hedwig Langer, and appeared in six stories in Scarlet Adventuress from 1935 to 1937, beginning with “The Devil’s Mistress” (Scarlet Adventuress, July 1935).

Nila Rand is a Femme Fatale. Rand is "that strange exotic creature who turned the blood of all men into molten fire--yet always forced her head to rule her heart..." She is an adventuress, arms dealer, gunfighter, and dealer in stolen goods. She is also bisexual, something unusual for the pulps.
