Name: Magdeline (Maggie) Sex: Female Age: 25 *(Optional: Heterosexual) Origin: The Middle Dimension Fighting for: Heaven Weapon of choice: Samurai Sword with simple wooden handle, used to send demons back to hell. Appearance: Maggie has a thin, white scar going through her right eyebrow, down through her eye and ending along her cheekbone. It’s not noticeable from a distance, but when in talking-distance it’s evident she has a scar. The edges are slightly pink, causing it to stick out against her naturally fair skin. Personality: Maggie is a very driven woman, especially when it comes to her passions. She has an extreme amount of empathy and care towards those who come to her for help, despite the fact that every time she leaves her mark, there is more danger of her being found by the Holy Order. She doesn’t keep contact with her clients after helping them, but she does everything in her power to help them. She has a tolerant behavior to neutral of good hell-borns. Many times hell-borns can be extremely helpful, and having them as friends is wise. Background: Maggie grew up in a Catholic home, her father being a devout man at her local church. She was raised being taught about Heaven and Hell, and all the rules of the church. She knew there were only three things she needed to do to make her father proud. Be a submissively obedient Catholic woman, knowing her place as well as studying and regularly attending church, Marry a devout Catholic man, Have plenty of Catholic babies, So that was her plan for her life ever since she was a child. As she grew older, her body and mind developing into a young woman, she began to see things other people couldn’t. She wasn’t quite sure what she was even seeing, but she could see darkness, in people, and darkness that seemed to hide in the shadows. She kept these things to herself, although she began to grow frightened, her monsters beneath the bed were becoming a reality. At the age of thirteen, she was on holiday with her family, taking a walk alone when she saw something, clearer than she had ever seen before, but it wasn’t a dark figure, it was a bright one. She didn’t run, but she didn’t approach it either. The features slowly focused into that of a man’s figure, she couldn’t quite make out the features, but when he spoke she was immediately at peace. He told her that the things she saw were real, and she could define and shape that sight, exercise it and use it to protect herself and other people. He told her that she would need to start training, mentally and physically to become the protector she was born to be. This angel of a man told her that this would be a hard journey for her, but that it was something she was meant to do. You will save many people from the darkness, but not all will respond gratefully. You are called to be a servant of the light, and you will sacrifice everything. Will you accept your calling? Those words burned in her brain, even to this day she still hears the angel’s words in her sleep. A month went by and she had given no answer to the angel, and one day after morning Mass, she decided to accept what the angel told her she needed to do. She had no idea what she was in for, and she well knew that. The next six years of her life were filled with intense studying, learning, physical, mental, and spiritual training. The angel visited her often, teaching her lessons that she needed to learn. The angel passed her onto someone on earth to learn from. She knew things would be getting hard for her, because she was being trained to become an exorcist. And the holy law said only priests could be exorcists, and only men could be priests. Not to mention all training and initiation had to be done through the Holy Order, and that’s not what Maggie was doing. She was doing it without any knowledge of the Holy Order. Her parents ended up finding out, and they turned her into the Holy Order. Thankfully she saw it coming, and had packed up her things and escaped from her home to live with the man who was now training her. Maggie finished her training in hiding, and at the age of 19, she was ready to be on her own. However, soon after her training was over, the Holy Order found her trainer, and executed him in his home. Maggie barely escaped, and fled. She ended up settling down in a rusty old midtown flat in New York, where she set up shop as a paranormal consultant. Most of her work included disproving ghost activity or so called “demon activity,” however she did exercise her fair share of demons. She kept low, not wanting to make a name too big for herself, knowing she was on the Holy Order’s list, still. But, unsurprisingly, every time she has a large exorcism, big enough to make the papers, she must flee somewhere else. Currently: Maggie still works as a consultant, but also finds herself cases on her own. She is a sort of traveling gypse, always on the run, able to stay somewhere for a year or so before packing up and moving again. She is always on the edge, keeping her eye out for any evidence of the Holy Order nearby.
