Cailleach

Player Name

Ragazzo

Name

Cailleach, The Veiled One

Concept

Domineering Dullahan

Power

Death's Delay: Cailleach has command over the doom of her companion, and subordinate Liadan, as well as herself. She possesses potent healing magic. Furthermore, she can undo a fatal wound that has been delivered to Liadan or herself, restoring him to 0 health but incapacitated, by expending all Action Points, if she acts immediately. (That round). Additionally, these abilities, healing, and restoration, can only be used on Liadan and Cailleach, unless the target willingly consigns their fate to the The Veiled One, giving her the ability to end their life at any time.

Aspects

The Pale Curtain Shredded: Denies the notion that death, and what lies afterward needs be unknown. Believes with all certainty that there is a time and place for every being to die. Refuses to allow any life to end inappropriately, if she can.
Velvet Voice, Veiled Threats: A orator of otherworldly excellence, Cailleach's tones are bewitching, and prompt cooperation in mortals, who she is genuinely benign towards, considering them to be akin to a flock of sheep she tends. However, should she happen to speak to someone, mortal or otherwise, who she believes is a danger to her 'flock', she will privately endeavor to sway them from their way of thinking, and make clear what the consequences of continuing will be.
Liadan!: Issues commands crisply to Liadan, who follows them immediately. More so, her fellow Dullahan is her personal guard, and is at all times prepared to protect his superior, often pulling her from harm's way, turning aside, or shielding her from assault. This is just as well, because Cailleach requires a protector. She is not a warrior, and without Liadan could be easily cut down by any competent attacker.

Personal History

There are many myths surrounding Cailleach, but few that sport by her true name. Most follow a similar pattern. A tall, willowy entity with the figure of a woman, swathed in a cloak dark as the depths of the sea where the sun fails, features obscured by a luminous white veil, silently appearing and sedately stalking travelers, at intervals, always old, or sickly travelers, alone, and without anyone to aid them, who gradually become aware of her presence, and are at first terrified, then hopeful, as she will steer them away from a series of easily fatal encounters. Bandits, wolves, and what have you. And eventually, when the traveler succumbs to their age, or illness, The Veiled One will appear, striding smoothly through all barriers, taking their hands, and speak for the first and last time to the object attentions, intoning the person's name gently, and watching them die. Any one fairly familiar with the occult will have heard one or two of these myths.

Miscellaneous

Shorter then Liadan, but still quite tall. 6 feet exactly. Like Liadan, she has the same issues with running water, gold, and iron.
