What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord.

APPEARANCE
------------------------------------------------------------

    HAIR COLOR: black

    EYE COLOR: right is brown, left is white from blindness

    HEIGHT: 5’4” / 1.63 m

    BODY TYPE: lean and athletic

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Morrigan has an angled, fierce-looking face with a dark chocolate eye that is almost black. Scarring covers a big portion of the left side of her face, and her left eye is a milky white from being blinded. Her hair is thick and black, and would fall in lovely waves down her back if it were not for the fact that it is always tangled and compacted with grease and dirt. Her lips are small, yet full with no laugh lines. They have an effect of looking constantly pursed. She has had her teeth and fingernails filed into points, making her appear even more foreboding. You will almost never find Morrigan without dirt on her skin, hair, and clothes. She spends much of her time out in the elements. Morrigan’s clothing is often times in tatters, and her outfit only changes when she steals a new one, usually off the body of a witch or wizard she had just killed.

    Stalking her prey
    Full moon
    Darkness
    Murder
    Pain (of others)

    CHARACTER DISLIKES:
    Wizards
    Magic
    Rules
    Werewolf Segregation
    Too much talk, not enough action
    Anyone trying to force her into something
    Anyone trying to restrain her

    GOALS:
    Her only goal is really getting to her next vicious assault.

    QUIRKS:
    Morrigan’s human form has filed fingernails and teeth, forming them into sharp points. Doing this makes her feel more deadly as a human, as it makes her teeth and nails pierce flesh easier. Morrigan very rarely resorts to using weapons. She enjoys close contact during the hunt, and the way it feels to attack someone with her bare hands.

    BOGGART: That a cure will be discovered for lycanthropy, and it will be forced on her. Morrigan has completely merged herself into the persona of a werewolf, if that were taken away, she feels it would be a fate worse than death.

    PATRONUS: The feeling of power from her first transformation into a werewolf.

    DEMENTOR: About the only thing Morrigan fears is being captured and not killed. While not afraid of death, Morrigan feels that to be captured and to live out the rest of her life in captivity would be a fate worse than death.

    VERITASERUM: Morrigan is not with the Death Eaters because she shares their ideals, she is with the Death Eaters, because they are the ones who allow her to do the things she loves. Left to her own devices, Morrigan would attack anyone; Order member or Death Eater alike. She only restrains herself from doing so, because the Death Eaters would merely kill her and be done with it, and her fun would end if she was dead. Morrigan actually has quite a big dislike for the Death Eaters, because of their view on werewolves being less deserving than untainted wizards. It is a partnership of convenience, and nothing more.

    MIRROR OF ERISED: Morrigan’s greatest desire is for her name to become as well-known as that of her hero, Fenrir. She wants to be just as feared as he was, and gain the respect that only someone who wields that fear can, turning it into power.

    PERSONALITY: Morrigan can best be described as a rabid dog; she is just as vicious and just as dangerous. Morrigan takes pleasure in inflicting pain upon others, and has become accustomed to the taste of blood; even when she is in her human form. Morrigan is also a true predator. She’ll go after the weakest and most innocent. The less able they are to defend themselves, the more likely she is to attack. All these years of her bloodlust and transformations have left her insane. She is not someone who is able to see the world as others do, and definitely not someone who can be reasoned with. She can disgust even the cruelest of wizards with her animalistic methods of attack. She likes to be up close and personal with her attacks, and views those who carry wands as cowards; attacking from a safe distance, relying on magic to do their dirty work. Morrigan does her own dirty work, with her own claws and teeth.

CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


    Early Years: Morrigan was bitten at a very young by a member of Fenrir’s underground werewolf community. Her parents had angered Lord Voldemort in some fashion, and the attack had been ordered on their child: Morrigan. Though they were not part of the Death Eater movement, Morrigan’s parents still had the mindset of ‘wizard superiority.’ They believed that the power of wizards entitled them as being the best of all species. Because of this mentality, Morrigan’s parents were disgusted by the fact that their daughter was now a werewolf. Morrigan’s parents abandoned her, leaving her in the dirty streets of London to fend for herself. She would have died, had it not been for her being ‘rescued’ by Fenrir Greyback and taken to his underground community to be raised. Morrigan proved to be a treasure, as she used her anger towards her parents for abandoning her as fuel for her hatred against wizard-kind, and quickly became the most vicious out of the rest of the adolescents.

    Though this vicious nature of Morrigan’s put her in the favorable sight of Fenrir, it distanced her from the rest of the pack. Many in the pack had been bitten at an older age, and accepted Fenrir’s offer of shelter more out of necessity than want. In the wizarding world they were outcasts, and being part of the pack was guaranteed protection. In return, they would do assignments for the Death Eater movement; however they didn’t necessarily enjoy them. Even the other children, who had been bitten young and raised by the pack were slow to approach Morrigan. They were intimidated by her, and put off by the enjoyment she got from making one of the other cubs yelp in pain during their sparring matches.

    While the pack’s distanced demeanor towards Morrigan initially disturbed her, she soon found that all the companionship and love she needed could be given to her by one man: Fenrir Greyback. Whenever Fenrir walked within the colony, Morrigan would follow him like a shadow. She hero-worshipped the man. The only one who ever seemed to see her worth. Fenrir made Morrigan feel as if she was someone important, and she would act out whenever she found herself under his scrutiny; ever striving to gain his praise and approval. Fenrir was the only thing that Morrigan ever truly loved.

    Morrigan’s first murder occurred when she was only eight. Sneaking away from the community, Morrigan had stationed herself near her parents’ house on the night of the full moon. She was beginning to become somewhat accustomed to her transformations, and was curious to test out the power of her wolf side. She knew there was only a small chance that she would encounter her parents, but she got lucky that night. Her mother had come outside to investigate a noise she had heard in the bushes underneath their bedroom window. That noise had proved to be Morrigan, and her mother being wandless, she was very easily dispatched. Her father had rushed out to see what was happening, and Morrigan killed him too. Afterwards, she felt almost as if she had avenged herself, though it didn’t quench her thirst for blood. She had been berated for sneaking away from the colony, however Fenrir also said that he couldn't be prouder of her for wanting to further explore the attributes of her wolf side.

    Hogwarts Years: Due to the fact that she was a werewolf, and a vicious one at that, Morrigan was never accepted into Hogwarts. Instead, she took on a schooling of a very different sort. It was during these years that Morrigan honed her fighting skills, and began to discover that she had some measure of control while she was transformed. She could never make the wolf do what she wanted, however she seemed to be able to suggest things. Since her wants and the wolf’s wants seemed to coincide, it was merely a matter of convincing the wolf to go after the prey she wanted targeted. Sometimes it worked, other times it didn’t, but it was something Morrigan wanted desperately to work on.

    It was also during these years that Morrigan discovered the blessed effects of the Wolfsbane potion. To be transformed, and maintain her own mind was like a dream come true for Morrigan. When she took the Wolfsbane, she could actually control her powerful transformed body, wreaking havoc in any way she pleased. It was the Disneyland for vicious werewolves like herself. It was hard to come by, however, and Morrigan began to find ways to threaten and coerce wizards into creating this brew for her. Whenever she had some Wolfsbane potion within her supply, Morrigan was twice the danger on the full moon than normal.

    While the Wolfsbane opened Morrigan’s eyes to the pleasures of complete control over her wolf body, it also opened her eyes to the dangers of the advances in medicine to control the werewolf ‘curse.’ If they could succeed in a potion that gave the human mind complete control over the wolf, how long would it be before they found a way to revert the change…or even worse; stop the change from happening all together? Morrigan’s one nightmare was that wizard-kind would invent a way to completely disable the werewolf DNA within her, and prevent her from transforming ever again. The animal within Morrigan was who she was. To lose the transformation would be to lose herself, and Morrigan could think of no greater punishment than to have a cure forced on her. More than once in her life, Morrigan has slipped away into hiding when rumors of a cure began to surface, only to come back when the rumors never bore fruit.

    Morrigan’s big regret during these years, was that she was deemed too young and unpredictable to take part in the first battle of Hogwarts. She had raged, threatened, and even had tears of anger when she was prevented from joining the ranks of her beloved Fenrir and his pack at the battle.

    Adulthood: The year that Morrigan turned 17, Voldemort had killed Harry Potter and had begun recruiting more followers to his cause. Morrigan had joined up immediately, and began to work on proving herself as a tool in striking the fear into the hearts of others. Morrigan was trying very hard to live up to her idol, Fenrir, and she volunteered for any mission she could. Morrigan wanted to make a name for herself. She wanted her name to be whispered with as much fear and respect as Fenrir’s was.

    It was not a great blow to Morrigan when Voldemort was defeated, her regrets falling more towards her sympathies towards the failure Fenrir felt himself to be. She had been used more for spying and reconnaissance work, so her name was nowhere near as well-known as she had wanted. It was hard to make a name for oneself when one was usually back in the shadows, unseen. Despite Fenrir’s spoken approval of her, Morrigan had often wondered whether Fenrir inwardly thought that she was incapable of battling wizards. The fact that she had never learned magic was a pretty big crutch when battling wizards, and Morrigan feared that perhaps Fenrir really saw her as being useless; worth nothing more than being a spy. She had never voiced her fears to her hero. She was too afraid of what his answer may be.

    This current climate of fear and uncertainty has Morrigan yet again, aspiring to become a name that strikes fear into the hearts of others. Situating herself among the Death Eaters faction, Morrigan is hashing out a plan to tighten the tension between the Death Eaters and the Order. She wants to kill without hinder and without worry. She wants her name to be whispered fearfully from the lips of parents and children alike. She wants her name to become as well-known, yet hated, as Fenrir’s; and for that, she needs a full-blown war.

I don't mind having another villain on site, but Morrigan is a bit too extreme and over the top for what we allow for villains. Is there a way you can 'dial her down' a bit? I like her general makeup and the foundation you have for her, but she's a bit too violent, a bit too powerful, etc

Remember, this is a PG-13 site. We have to function within those guidelines. I'd like to have her, but we have to take out some of her intensity, please.

Thanks!

I'll probably need some help with that, if you don't mind. My line of work in the past has kind of desensitized me to violence, so I always get unsure as to where to draw the line.

Which parts shall I tone down on? Is it the attacking the children part, or talking about liking blood? Could you help me out by telling me which parts need some editing, please? Thanks for any help.

First, under bad traits, i'd reduce the multiple references to her mental instability. One is enough and gives others the point. it does sound like she's more animalistic than she is human. you might consider making a clear reference early on, in those lists. it doesn 't sound like she likes people at all. is she solitary, except for her pack? how does she get along within her pack? she sounds like she might be a bit of a seperatist even within her pack.

in her description, you talk about her nails being points. are those her fingernails when she is more human? or are those her claws when she is transfigured? I would think her claws would naturally be sharp.

it doesn't sound like there is much she is outwardly afraid of, except for losing her lycanthropy. i'd like to see you explore that. i presume that potionsmakers who understand lycanthropy and are always researching and working on improved wolfsbane potions, etc., might be threatening for her? anyone else? any particular wizards or wizarding families? or factions? i'd like to see her have a few more vulnerabilities.

I'm not sure the reference to the wolfsbane potion being a godsend to her is realistic, honestly. I'm not sure it really follows canon. My understanding about wolfsbane is that it prevents transfiguration. Are you sure that is a true-to-canon assessment of how that potion works? I was under the impression that Fenrir worked less about potions and dependence on chemicals and such as he was about self determination and controlling oneself to the point where it controlled the beast within to a given point. If you disagree, please say so.

The other thing that concerns me is that she has so many murders under her belt at a young age. We rarely accept characters who are so advanced in their skills, and we look for characters who have developed their skills in an age appropriate manner. Would you look that over, please, and perhaps bring that a bit more in line with her age? I don't mind that she's violent and animalistic. But, she appears to be a bit overpowered.

Lets see if some of those edits don't fix it. And speak up if I'm misreading!

Wolfsbane still allows a transfiguration. Remus said under Wolfsbane, he was 'harmless wolf.' A few of the werewolf players here (including myself) say Wolfsbane simply gives their werewolf a human brain in a wolf body.

Got ahead of me on the wolfsbane thing, Jack. ^_^ I wasn't going to argue it too terribly much, however, because it's really not a huge deal. It was going to be a way into a plot that I knew Santana was wanting to do.

Anywho, thanks for the feedback, and I'll start editing real soon. I've been immensely busy this week with the college. Lots of kids requesting tutoring in spelling and grammar, plus volunteering at the animal shelter has taken up a lot of my time. Haven't even started on my sig requests yet. Sad

Foreseeing more freetime in the upcoming week, however, so I imagine I'll get this application done then. Thanks, Khaat!

Let's try that. I edited the traits a bit, and better explained the whole filing her nails and teeth thing. I also expanded on the wolfsbane potion use, and created a fear of a cure from that discovery.

Expanded on her childhood and how she was viewed by others in her pack. Also transformed Fenrir into something of a hero for her. Don't know if I got it across good enough, but I attempted to create another vulnerability there, as she cares very greatly for what he thinks of her.

Instead of saying that she is a tool to strike fear in the hearts, I changed it so that she was striving to obtain that status where she would be feared. However, she never obtained it, because she was used more in a spying capacity than as a foot soldier. Goes into her vulnerability against trained wizards, because she never learned magic and carries no wand...as well as her fear of appearing to be useless in Fenrir's eyes.

I did keep her first murder at the age of 8, but tried to make it sound more like this was a one-time thing because she got away from the pack, and had revenge driving her. I can always up the age a bit. I'm trying to get it to sound more like an experiment. Like, she wanted to know exactly how powerful her transformation was, so that's why she snuck out to hunt her parents.

I often have problems creating 'bad guy' characters, so if there are any other changes to be made or anything please let me know.

I see now that the image looks broken, but that seems to be due to Photobucket being down for some reason. All my posted images from photobucket on this site are broken right now.
