Power

The Music of Claudia Zann: For an Action Point, Claudia can us any music she makes to force a mental defence roll vs. her magic roll. If the target of her music fails, they are unable to act for one action. Claudia is unable to take action herself while she plays or sings.

Aspects

Speak No Evil: Claudia doesn't like to talk about how her power works, or her less than clear past. She tends to shut down and stop talking completely when the issue is pressed, even under dire circumstances.
Well Traveled: Her obligation to her perceived duty has taken Claudia many places in the world. She speaks many languages, and knows the ins and outs of many cultures.
The Song to Save the World: After using her powers to hold back abominations since she was a small child, Claudia has come to believe music is the strongest ward against the supernatural, and is hard to part from her instruments. When she has none, she often hums or whistles, even when she ought to stay quiet.
Cobbled Skald: After being kidnapped by a slaving ring, Claudia's legs below the knee have been replaced with the necks of double basses. It's taking a while for her to walk normally again, let alone run.

Personal History

There's not a lot known about Claudia, she keeps mostly to herself. She is extremely involved with The Serpent's Hand, so much so, many other members outside her contacts don't know who she is. She used the Ways to get to places that were having trouble with other worldly creatures, often traveling with someone capable of fighting the beasts, though never the same person twice. She would use her talent to hold the attackers in place as her companion would destroy them. Other times, she would go alone, stay awake and playing night after night till the creatures gave up or lost interest. She was traveling the Ways during The Event, and now finds herself lost in the new world.

Miscellaneous

Claudia is about 5'8 and a skinny little thing. She is extremely pale, and her hair is so blonde it's almost white. She has vibrant, green eyes and has permanent mydriasis in her left eye. Her legs below the knee are wooden, and much like the neck and head of a double bass.
