Can Valeria Batten (either version) invent the Wretched? The first sentence in the Wretched's trait (emphasis added below) would indicate that she cannot since she is not a Mad Scientist, but using her Huckster skill as if she were one. I just wanted official clarification.
Dude • Stud 0 • Influence 1 • Cost 4 • Upkeep 0
Valeria can invent Mystical gadgets using her Huckster skill (as if it were Mad Scientist).
Dude • Stud 4 • Influence 0 • Cost 2 • Upkeep 1
Abomination • Mystical • Non-Unique • Gadget • Difficulty 9
The Wretched must be invented by a Mad Scientist. It enters play at the Mad Scientist's location (but does not attach).
After The Wretched enters play, ace a dude you own and control in the same location. The inventing Mad Scientist gains 2 bounty (if still in play).
