True North – Grave Walker

Actually not a force for evil. The 80s lies, it always lies.

Actually not a force for evil. The 80s lies, it always lies.

Another True North character. She’s been with me for years in various incarnations, so much so I’ve written three short stories about her, buuut none of em ever got published.

Their loss. 😛

Even so, I’m not going to quit, when I have time expect a novel or two. . . err, after Knights of the Hidden Sun and my NNWM project.

Background

  • Michelle’s father was a magician who warded off a curse that would kill her by giving her to Anubis as a goddaughter. She was a toddler at the time.
    • Anubis accepted this loophole given Michelle’s father could have reflected the curse onto innocents but chose not to.
    • He failed to remove the curse from himself and perished.
  • Michelle had a ‘normal’ childhood, in Regina, with the occasional visit from her terrifying godfather and ghosts.
  • Michelle used her connection to Anubis to become a wealthy undertaker.
  • She never got used to working on children, no one does.
  • A string of child murders that ended on her table spurred her to become a hero.
  • Anubis has bestowed magic to Michelle, in exchange for the occasional side job of putting the living-dead to rest.

Personality

  • Confident to the point of audacity.
  • Frank in conversation unless she’s dealing with someone whose hurt or in mourning.
  • Despises child abusers.
  • Respectful of her godfather.
  • Distrustful of authority, though will follow David’s lead because he’s a good friend.

Appearance

  • African Canadian.
  • Built like an amazon.
  • Long, black braided hair, brown eyes.
  • Dresses classy when out of costume.
  • In costume she’s dressed in leather and Kevlar amour, with a featureless jackal mask. Armed a long, dark staff.
