Subject: CHARACTER: Mischief
Date: Mon, 13 Dec 1993 01:43:49 EST
Archtype: Female Cat Shaman
Mischief is a large black housecat with a diamond necklace. Her
black fur glistens as if it has just been cleaned. In her left ear is a
small gold earring. That's right folks, it is a Cat!.
Mischief is a cat shaman. Raised on the streets, she came into
her power through her own teachings. She quickly realized she was a
follower of Cat. Mischief was also the target of an infatuation. An older
man, of some wealth fell in love with the girl who scorned him. He showered
her in gifts which she refused. Eventually, she got the picture. To avenge
his wounded heart, he played the nastiest of tricks upon her. Spending a
great deal of his resources, he discovered the talismonger whom she
worked with. Once again, dropping a great deal of money, he convinced this
talismonger to design a spell that was so complex, he hoped it would
boggle her young, not too knowledgable, mind. The spell looked as if it
was a tradition Critterform spell, in the form of a Cat. Hidden within
the complexity of its design was the fact that the spell was not sustained,
but permanent.
Mischief jumped at the chance to learn the spell. Her arrogance and
desire blinded her to the truth behind the spell. After casting it upon
herself, she discovered her error. Since that time, she has been unable to
design a spell to reverse or counter its effects. Mischief hsa come to
believe that Cat is punishing her, so she remains in this form until such
time that Cat inspires her with the reversal of this spell.
Mischief is a typical street magician- not too interested in the
dangerous life of a shadowrunner, but always curious about the latest street
gossip. Very few people know of her existence- she uses a fortune teller who
she has placed a mind control spell upon as a front. She has also provided
herself with an illusion of her former self through which she communicates
with others when she feels the need. Many people believe her to be nothing
more than an Ally to the fortune teller, who is in fact mundane. (Just ask
around, she is actually an initiate with Masking).
