Name

Susan

Concept

Banshee

Power

Banshee: Susan is a banshee. She possesses an otherworldly wail; with it, she may spend an AP to summon a minor undead spirit to converse with, or gain a +3 to Intimidation. She may also break glass with it for free. When a human dies around her, she is compelled to shriek and spend an AP.

Aspects

She's Dead Jim: While a very nice and polite person, Susan is one of the undead. At first glance, she's pretty normal, but take a good look at her and she's just looks off; she's cold to the touch; animals hate her. And she just plain unnerves people who aren't used to her. Also this has implications for how she is actually injured and healed.


I hear dead people, and they're annoying: Susan can talk to the dead, but this is often more trouble than it's it worth. She can't control what kinds of people detect her, which can lead to a whole slew of issues. Occasionally they'll severely distract her by being incessant and demanding of her attention.
Creature of Myth: Susan is a creature from myth and legend, and as such, she knows of and is known by other creatures from myth and legend. Additionally, she is physically sickened by "holy" places such as churches, and certain items cause her extreme discomfort.

Personal History

Susan, the name she goes by at this time, is a Banshee, originally from Ireland. She has been living in the United States since 1845. She came with her sister, and has been traveling the States, meeting people, talking, and generally exploring.

Miscellaneous

Susan's form is alterable, but normally she takes the form of a tall thin girl with long red hair, dressed in a loose flowing white dress. Her personality is kind, but she can be a bit at a loss dealing with living people, forgetting basic things like the need to eat and breathe.

If Susan grows upset or wishes to scare someone, she can alter her form to that of a skeletal hag with a gaping mouth and black eyes.
