I have a NPC free ally spirit based on Lady Death. The idea behind her
is that she was designed by a young "geek" mage, a teenage loser with
no friends and no hope with the girls. When it came time to design the
ally formula, he used the idea of "ulitimate" woman from his favorite
comic: powerful, beautiful, deadly and built like a brick $h!t house.

Anyways, the wiz-kid ended up getting scragged when his path crossed
with that of a troll juggernaut shaman. Lady Death went free. She
hunted down and killed the shaman out of vengence. Now she makes a
cameo here and there 'til I decide what I really want to do with her.

I had a player that based his character on Grendel. He was killed by a
Dragon though.
