Prokofy Neva, also known as "Prok", in real life known as Catherine A. Fitzpatrick, informally as Cathy Fitzpatrick (born 1956), is an aging hippie, Internet troll, stalker, conspiracy theorist and unstable single mom from New York City. Prokofy is one of the most infamous trolls and serial harassers of Second Life. She usually appears in Second Life using a male, "pimp priest" avatar 30 years her junior, although she has at least half a dozen sockpuppets.
She claims to detest being griefed by W-Hatters, Nigras, Woodbury University students, Emerald users and others, yet it evades her that every time she opens her mouth she makes herself a target thanks to her non stop stream of inane statements. Prokofy doesn't just feed the (other) trolls, she serves them up a three course meal.
She also happens to be batshit insane. By her fans, she is passionately referred to as the "Old Bat", and sometimes as the Crazy Cat Lady, a reference to a character from The Simpsons resembling Prokofy's real life self according to some. When people are particularly pissed at Prokofy, they sometimes refer to her as the Batshit Bitch.
Prokofy Neva has been described as a troll by Linden Lab and hard-banned from the Linden Blog. There have been repeated calls to ban her from Second Life, as she is widely despised by most other residents.
Prokofy Neva, Prokofy or Prok may also be used as a general term describing an insane, aging female Internet troll, who spends all her time battling windmills in Internet games.
Real Life Stuff
Prokofy has self-identified as Catherine A. Fitzpatrick (born 1956), an old lonely woman and a former translator of Russian from New York City. Why she chose to learn this language is anyone's guess (why learn Russian if you hate communists?). She used to live in the Soviet Union (yes, seriously), where she was a student at the University of Leningrad, graduating in 1979. Apart from translating from Russian, she has also been a human rights activist in the past. The last ten years, after losing her job as a consequence of 9/11, she has spent most of her time on online games 24/7. Before she made her home in Second Life, she was addicted to The Sims Online (as "Dyerbrook", a citizen of Alphaville), and was widely despised there.
She currently works as a freelance editor for the CIA-run Radio Free Europe's Central Asia section where she bitches and trolls about how un-civil central asian thug dictators are, and then she logs onto SL and acts just like one of them.
As a shriveled old hag that has never, and now will never, know human affection she uses Second Life as a sort of online hugbox. This explains her batshit insanity and general tendencies towards shitting bricks whenever she is disagreed with. She is a basement dweller of the highest order and has nothing left in her life but the shitty excuse that is Second Life. Bawwwwww.
In a disturbing twist, twist Prokofy/Catherine refers to having a daughter. Obviously this is a child Prokofy stole from Soviet Russia and is fattening up in preparation for eating. However, some argue that Prokofy is actually a retrosexual, she had sex once but it was so long ago she no longer has any recollection of it.

So many people have ordered pizza for her without her consent that all pizza parlors on the East Side of Manhattan now call her to confirm orders are valid before delivering (She apparently likes the meat lovers deluxe with extra cat, be sure to order that).
Second Life Stuff
Prokofy's absolute insanity has not endeared her to anyone. Even the faggots that run Second Life, Linden Labs, banned her from their forums for massive drama creation. Excluding a handful of radical feminists, everyone agrees that she needs to become an hero as soon as possible. She can be seen ranting on any of the Second Life-related sites about how anyone that disagrees with her is a troll. She displays her overwhelming sense of unwarranted self importance and masterful displays of stroking her E-Peen to anyone who'll watch. It's so self righteous it's almost hypnotic.
It should be obvious, Prokofy believes Second Life to be SERIOUS FUCKING BUSINESS. According to Something Awful, Prokofy previously worked in the UN and as a sociologist but threw it all away to rent out imaginary land to retards. This goes some ways towards explaining her bitterness and easiness to grief. In fact, he/she is so easy to grief that even normal interaction will be treated as cyberrape or some shit.
Her avatar in Second Life is male, this leads us to the assumption that Prokofy, who apparently studied the oppression of women in Soviet Russia has realized the inherent inferiority of women and is disguising herself in an attempt to escape from the kitchen. Alternatively, she is just batshit insane.
If anyone is in Second Life for whatever reason then look for Ravenglass rentals, Prokofy's own little rental company.
Prokofy most commonly writes articles about griefing in Second Life, and is well known for her belief that W-Hat, Plastic Duck, /b/ and Patriotic Nigras are all Leninist Bolshevik cultist Maoist Terrorist Communist Nazis from the planet Zolton-5, and are secretly collaborating with Linden Labs, IntLib, Anshe Chung, Justice League Unlimited, Microsoft, The U.S. government, the FBI, the CIA, the KGB, MI5 and the Illuminati.
Prokofy's own political alignment can be speculated on to be somewhere between Rabid Ayn Rand Fangirl and Psychotic Schizophrenic Delusion, as not only has she given herself a Russian pseudonym, but also seems to somehow draw a parallel between any given event ever and Russian politics from anywhere between 100 years ago and last Thursday.
Prokofy's real name is Svetlana Stalin. She lives in an old folks' home in Wisconsin and is a member of the Trilateral Commission. She has a grandson called Mikhail Gorbachev. 100% fact.
She is also concerned by the Illuminati's evil plot to take over Second Life by establishing the "Feted Inner Core", a group that have regular orgies with the Second Life owners, Linden Labs and don't invite Prokofy. This shadowy group exists only in her mind and includes anyone that's been in Second Life for long enough that Prokofy can't call them a noob to avoid arguing.
She obsessively and regularly compiles a list of those in the so-called "FIC" and refers to them as such:
—Prokofy Neva, obviously a sufferer of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which is characterized by unwarranted feelings of self-importance, grandiosity and a sense of entitlement.
