Audley Z Darkheart (ODS) is a near daily commenter at Pharyngula, who mostly hangs out in The Endless Thread and in threads dealing with feminist and women's issues. She does not suffer tone trolls gladly.

Audley has used several pseudonyms, including OurDeadSelves, Mother of Death and The Courier (ODS). The name "Audley Z Darkheart" was given to her by Caine, Fleur du mal during Episode CLXX: Matter of The Endless Thread.

In her spare time, Audley enjoys long walks on the beach, romantic candlelit dinners, bearskin rugs, and preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse.
