History

 

A mysterious young 'witch' from Salem, Massachusetts, she has become a hero in her own right.

One night, a band of creatures only known as "Fir Bolgs" (an ancient Celtic magical creature) was terrorizing Salem.  Dozens of people were killed or hurt.  Policemen tried shooting them, but was found to be ineffective.  As the Fir Bolgs amassed in Salem's Square, attempting to open a mystical portal to allow thousands more Fir Bolgs to cross over, Sister Salem came on the scene.

Using arcane (and dark/death) magical spells, she obliterated dozens of the Fir Bolgs, scattering them throughout the town.  By the end of the night, she had set up a ward spell preventing the Fir Bolgs from entering the town ever again.

When approached by the media and police, she was curt yet honest, stating 'without her, a witch, the town would have surely been at the mercy of the Fir Bolgs intended invasion'.

She quickly exited in a puff of black smoke. 

Weeks later, several dozen other magical creatures were attacking some Massachusetts townships.  The first to arrive were the magical warriors, the "Knights Arcanus", led by the unpopular Samhain Knight. He and his team fought bravely, but were pushed back with the increasing number of creatures.  That's when Sister Salem arrived, fending off the creatures with her illusions and magic.  Together, they eventually defeated the creatures.  When asked to join the Knights Arcanus, Sister Salem remarked, "you are not the team I am foreshadowed to join. No.", and once again, left in a black puff of smoke.

Recently, a militant madman known as "Emperor North" and his "United Canadian Empire" (UCE) troops invaded New England, renaming it "New Canada".  They'd hidden several nuclear weapons around New England, threatening to detonate them if any nation or 'hero' was stupid enough to cross him in his new nation.  A vigilante known as "Minuteman" brought together several heroes from all over New England, including Sister Salem.  She and the hero known as Lexington teamed together to defuse and disable one of the nukes in Massachusetts.  They succeeded and drove out the UCE Troopers, saving all of New England.  Days later, Minuteman asked if Sister Salem would join his newly formed super-group called the "Yankee Minutemen" she not only said yes, but mentioned this was the team she was fated to be part of.

Since then, Sister Salem, in her own way, has brusquely befriended her new teammates, all the while mentioning that soon, the team would need her to stop a massive magical incursion that would eventually 'destroy humanity'.  With those ominous words, she continues to fight alongside the group...but in her very own scary, weird manner.

Powers

 

Power Origin: Magic (Various Schools of Magic)

  • ILLUSION CONTROL

    • Spectral Wounds (Charm)

      • Can manipulate conditions or images in a ranged target's mind that they are being hurt/damaged at good levels (psionic/mental) by whatever 'conceived' attack can hurt them (usually something related to their personal weaknesses)​

      • Cannot affect robots or programmed equipment without any form of psyche and/or soul

      • Range: 10 yards

    • Blind (Arcane)

      • Using arcane magics, a flash of light at a good level can cause a form of mental/psionic blindness to any and all within range of a 45-degree angle to Sister Salem's gaze​

      • Range: 10 feet

      • Effect lasts several seconds to a minute of time (random time and vs. target's psyche)

      • Invisibility lasts up to 10 minutes before it has to be successfully reapplied

    • Spectral Phantasm/Ghost Creation (Spirit)

      • Can create good spectral images of ghosts, herself, others as illusions, real enough for those that believe the images are actually real​, controlling them with mere thought and gesture

      • Can create up to 10 images max (more than 6 requires concentration and more focus)

      • Can also call subservient spirits (ghosts) to do the same thing, to which she can control them with mere thought and gesture

      • Can only control/create these images within 10 yards of her location

  • SPELLS

    • Entice (Charm)

      • Using a good charm influence, she ​can attempt to get a person/animal/being to do what she wills them to do, so long as it is not against the target's true nature or death-defying

      • Example: Can get a man to wash the dishes, but cannot get a man to kill himself for her

      • Lasts up to 10 minutes

      • Doesn't leave any post-effect feeling that the target was being manipulated or 'enticed' by her magic

    • Visage of Beauty (Charm)

      • Although already a physically beautiful woman, she can amplify her effect up to good levels, mentally/magically overriding any disgust or disdain a target has about Sister Salem's beauty​

      • She can deflect the spell's focus to another person/being rather than herself, however, this is a feat she is still learning to control and as such she is still a bit of a novice at, requiring focus and concentration to perform this feat

      • Effect can last up to 10 minutes, however, she can also reapply the charm consecutively every 10 minutes

      • Doesn't leave any post-effect feeling that the target was being manipulated or 'enticed' by her magic

      • Can be attuned to detecting magic for over 10 hours once the one minute focus period event is complete

      • NOTE: She also has a unique innate ability to detect typical or greater levels of magic within 6 feet from her location without any effort, even if said magic levels are shielded up to good levels

    • Health Transference (Holy)

      • UNIQUE ABILITY (Lost art from Holy School of Magic; was learned by one-on-one training to Sister Salem from her mother; no written process (was told if written down, the power will no longer work ever again for anyone (on this plane of existence, at least))

        • Range: Can pull from health of others only within 10 feet of her location

        • Healing rate: 10% of a target's health every 6 seconds

        • Can maintain this for only 1 minute's maximum time; after she stops the transference (even if its for a one-time short event, she will fall into a 'holy coma' that requires her to go into a coma-like state for the next 1-10 hours, after which she will be fully healed regardless of how little she transferred and/or to whom

    • Dark Ichor Cloud (-Vis) (Dark/Death)

      • When cast, the cloud emanates from the caster's location outward in all directions expanding to over 20 yards in radius​

      • This creates a dark cloud of thick, black ichor (thicker than fog) that not only seems to block visivility and light by three levels, it seems to 'crawl' onto any and all in the effected area; once the ichor attaches itself to a person/being/object, it will continue to emanate the dark ichor around the person/being/object it is attached to even if the person/being/object leaves the 20 yard radius
