The Senovara were an ancient Celtic clan caught up in what seemed to be a neverending war with another clan called the Drustani. They had handed the Drustani several defeats only to have them rise up within a generation to renew battle having developed a powerful hatred to see all Senovara destroyed. So it came to pass that there would be a final battle where a king named Orgetorix decreed that, upon his life, would the Drustani threat be removed forever. With the battle won, Orgetorix ordered that a celebration be arranged for the coming of Samhain where the surviving Drustani were to be sacrificed to the gods of Winters Frost.

Their dead were ordered dug up and cast into the fires so that even the memory of their existence would be erased from within the earth. Samhain was when the doorways between the living world and the Otherworld were at their thinnest allowing the dead to cross over to dwell among the living. With their celebrations at an end, the Senovara retired to sleep off their drunkenness from the nights' revelries leaving druid priests to make sacrifice to protect them as they slept. But the gods were not pleased with their works so that one among them brought forth a vessel born of hate, an unstoppable killing machine who would not rest until the Senovara bloodline had been extinguished.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Isambard Octavius Carver arrived in the New World haunted by a past he could not change. He was an explorer and antiquarian who found wealth in the American Slave Trade with ships bringing indentures from Europe, slaves from Africa and expatriated Natives to the Caribbean for his share of wealth from the lucrative sugar trade. Founding a branch of the Hellfire Club in the British Colony of New York, he became aware of the Mi'kmaq tribe of New France (now Canada) and their possible connection to the Knights Templar. Through cruelty and torture, he forced the Mi'kmaq to tell him of Oak Island off the coast of Nova Scotia and located a hoard of treasures there.

Isambard became a devotee of Baphomet and brought together some of the most powerful individuals in the English Colonies to serve with him. Although loyal to the British king, his son William Ambrose Carver supported rebellion seeing the British Empire too thinly spread following the French and Indian War. Murdering his father, he married an equally driven woman named Amélie Pelletier-Archambault who had been bred to assume reins of power equal to any man. Amélie was motivated by a desire to regain family holdings in Luisiana Española of El Imperio Español (Spanish Louisiana of the Spanish Empire) lost when New France was ceded to England and Spain.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the American Revolution concluded, William became a New York Senator fighting to prevent the passage of anti-slavery laws that threatened his empire. This led to his supporting Nathaniel Gorhams efforts to get Prince Henry of Prussia to become king of a Constitutional Monarchy. When Prince Henry refused the invitation, William sought to place himself in this position only to be twarted when George Washington accepted the offer to become President under a new Constitution.. Taking a former slave named Brigitte as his mistress, William relocated his slaves to what had been La Basse-Louisiane where Amélie's family had regained holdings from the Spanish Crown.

Also known as Maman Brigitte, William gave her access to Vice President Aaron Burr with details about the Third Treaty of San Ildefonso and Spain returning Louisiana to France. This culminated in the Louisiana Purchase and further destabilizing a young nation on the verge of tearing itself apart. When Burr then failed to become Governor of New York for the purpose of seceding from the Union, new plans were set in motion leading to the Aaron Burr Conspiracy. Intending to secede the Louisiana Territory into a new créole nation that included Texas and Mexico called Les états-unis de Louisiane (The United States of Louisiana). Burr again failed and dreams of a new nation evaporated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amélies parents, Jean-Jacques and Sigolène Archambault, lived in the area of St. Jean du Vermilionville where William Carver settled to create an even more extreme branch of the Hellfire Club called the Culte de Salomé. Carver now sought nothing less than unleashing Hell on Earth and marching on Washington DC which he believed had been designed by architect Pierre Charles L'Enfant to incorporate a pentagram. Even if this were the case, Carver was mistaken to assume this meant something evil as pentagrams were more often associated with health and protection while an inverted pentagram was seen as representing the opposite by fringe groups.

William successfully concealed his family's involvement in these affairs and began exploiting Acadian refugees brought to Louisiana following the French and Indian War. However, a brilliant British detective named Sir Benjamin Hart had come to the United States tracking the movement of Hellfire Club members and investigating allegations that Benjamin Franklin was a member (possibly even being involved in mysterious disappearances). Benjamin Hart was highly successful in what he did and because the Yanks appreciated his skills, he decided to help them in their efforts to find evidence against those involved in the Burr Conspiracy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finding his way to Louisiana, Hart discovered the Culte de Salomé and contacted the local militia run by a man named Sébastien de Bellemonte. Leading an assault on Carver House, Bellemonte ordered that "all the witches be killed" and Hart was sent packing with enough money to conceal everything he knew about what they had done. The seeds of this corruption would haunt Hart's family for generations as most would remain in law enforcement where they became known for dogged determination leading many to untimely deaths. But there were secrets hidden within the Hart family bloodline, Unholy secrets waiting to be awakened!

But, there had been an unseen survivor rescued by Sébastien de Bellemonte. Her name was Hélène-Aimé de Beauséjour, an illegitimate daughter of William Carver who had been bred to host the demoness Salomé for the purpose of bringing her father Baron Samedi (Baphomet) into our world. Bellemonte seized all of Carvers holdings and took Hélène as his wife learning from her about the Curse of Caelen Gáeth, a death curse handed down for countless generations from the ancient Celts. It was he who had been unleashed by the Senovara and who had been banished back into the Otherworld at the onset of Beltain with the surviving Senovara scattered among the other clans.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Summer of 1968 was as long as it was hot in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana. Anthony and Lorraine Hart had arrived in Broussard, Louisiana seeking a new beginning for a troubled marriage. They had inherited property in Côte Gelée Swamp from a distant relative named Margaux Séraphine de Bellemonte that they had never heard of before. While the locals offered them hospitality, they weren't happy to have strangers in their midst. However, the probate attorney handling the will had informed them that they had to live at the estate as a condition of the inheritance and they were determined to stay.

Jennifer Hart was the older of the Harts two daughters and had endured a lifetime of surgeries to correct several birth defects. She was tall for her age and exceptionally powerful which bullies didn't seem to consider with taunts such as calling her Frankenstein because of her scars. Then came the schoolyard fight that forever changed the lives of her family when Jennifer killed a fellow student with her bare hands and put others in the hospital with severe injuries. Her father was a successful New York attorney who broke several laws defending her costing them everything and leaving them no choice but to accept the terms of the will to escape crippling debts.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Driven out to the middle of nowhere, they were taken to a manor overgrown with so many trees that they never could have found it on their own. Bellemont Mansion had been partially maintained by its former owner so that it was live-in ready and came with liquid assets totaling over twenty million dollars including money for a full restoration of the property. Jennifer was the primary beneficiary of the will and most of her first year was spent undergoing a final round of surgeries bringing an end to this torturous period in her life. For all that she had endured, Jennifer never saw herself as a victim because her father's love helped her to endure the pain caused by corrective and cosmetic surgeries.

To celebrate her final surgery, her father allowed her to get her first tattoo which Jennifer created herself patterned on her favorite heavy metal band. She deceived her father into letting her get the tattoo without him watching and to say he wasn't pleased to see it was a sabbatic goat after the work was done would be an understatement. Anthony found a way of forgiving his daughter over a shared chocolate milkshake and a joke about the figure being the spitting image of her maternal grandmother. More body art was to follow covering up additional scars and discoloration providing Jennifer with newfound confidence because she viewed her body as a work in progress.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Modesty wasn't a virtue for Jennifer as she developed a powerful, athletic physique as revenge against those who had treated her like a monster. She was now becoming physically attractive even for the scars and boxing proved a healthy outlet for Jennifer as she took the place of the son her father would never have. Should anyone misunderstand, her favorite color was pink and she liked girlish things often emblazoned with the words "Daddy's Girl" that included a pink heart tattoo on her left arm with those words. She invited her friends to the mansion regularly to explore the surrounding ruins to keep her out of her mother's hair and avoiding her contempt.

Lorraine Hart blamed Jennifer for all their problems and viewing her as an embarrassment when compared to her youngest daughter Katrina (aka "Lil Miss Perfect"). Her father had gained a license to practice law in Louisiana and his skills defending the community led him to the Mayor's office while Lorraine's abilities as a community organizer brought new growth and investment. Anthony always made time to spend with Jennifer and while hunting with her in Devils Bayou the following year, they discovered a wrecked 1950 Mercury Eight that had been abandoned some years before.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Having the car towed back to the mansion, it would be the perfect father/daughter project in the old Italianate style ruin they had converted into a garage. The top floor of the attached tower had been converted into an exercise room for Jennifer when she was angry and became known as "Devils Tower" in the role-playing games she played with her friends with the Mercury became known as The Demon of Devils Tower. It was due to her love for roleplay that people ignored when they heard her talking to herself but, had anyone known the secrets contained within Jennifer's diaries, they might have taken this more seriously as she grew increasingly silent.

By the time Jennifer was fifteen, it had become clear that her parents' marriage was one of convenience where they pretended to be happily married when the only thing making them man and wife was a piece of paper. Lorraine had developed a drinking problem that exposed their children to indiscretions on her part and the two were sleeping in separate bedrooms. They began to quarrel more often and it was during one of these quarrels that their car plunged over a cliff slamming into the rocks below killing Anthony Hart on impact. Lorraine luckily survived with cuts, bruises, and a few broken bones but questions were being raised that the new Mayor quickly silenced.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The new Mayor was a man known to the children as their mother had entertained him on more than one occasion in their home. There would be no autopsy because Lorraine had Anthony's body cremated and Jennifer's reaction to all this was silence because she knew what her mother had done even if it would never be proven. Jennifer then stole her fathers' ashes to mix with paint which she then sprayed on the Demon to keep his spirit with her forever. The only person in the world who loved her was now gone leaving Jennifer with her pain and a growing hatred that would consume her as she began disappearing for days at a time.

Jennifer was becoming more violent and unpredictable but her mother was too caught up in herself to notice even had she cared. Taking up a macabre interest in her father's hobby of taxidermy, something he called "rescuing the dead", she became quite adept at it even if he never was. New ink would be added to her body portraying her love and happiness with her father, and expressing the anger that now replaced it following his loss. With Jennifer's sixteenth birthday fast approaching, Lorraine saw an opportunity to exploit and improve her standing in the community by organizing a formal débutante ball to introduce young women like Katrina to the world,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jennifer's friends had been invited to keep her occupied in the newly renovated west wing on the eve of the event. While exploring some caves, one of her friends discovered a doorway leading to a subterranean level they had never explored before. Jennifer led them through as if she knew her way and then disappeared leaving her friends searching for a way out that they would never find. As guests began arriving the following afternoon, Lorraine sent people to find Jennifer who returned with word that her exercise room looked as if someone had torn it apart with a sledgehammer. Lorraine gave it no further thought as Jennifer had been releasing her rage like this since her father's death.

The only thing even slightly alarming to anyone were rumors of screams beneath the house from the night before and Jennifer's friends were missing. As the hallway clock rang out announcing it was six in the evening, a clap of thunder reminded people of the torrential rains from the previous night and they knew a storm was moving in. After introducing Katrina, the nights' activities shifted to Lorraine as she had intended and then came word that Jennifer was preparing herself as promised. As the storm grew in intensity, it knocked out the electricity and a groundskeeper was called to turn on backup generators while they lit candles for light.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Accommodations were being made for the guests to stay over as a downpour so strong they couldn't even see their vehicles began to fall. A lightning strike then blew out the power generators and what electricity did arrive came from county power lines that flickered on and off creating a sense of unease. Another flash of lightning revealed a silhouette of a woman standing on the second-floor balcony in front of the large bay windows. The woman then leaped from the railing landing with a thud as blood and gore splattered everywhere from the man she crushed with a sledgehammer.

These weren't helpless people as many of them possessed firearms and there were weapons throughout the mansion even if they might be improvised. Some guests scattered while others pulled their guns opening fire and while their bullets were clearly cutting through her, they only succeeded in causing her to slump over.  The men who then rushed at her went flying back across the room with the sickening sound of bones breaking and people dying. Some ran out into the storm only to find there would be no escape from the fetish garbed killer in the devil's mask which Lorraine recognized as one of her own which she wore in the company of her sex partners.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What she couldn't know was that Jennifer was no longer herself, no longer the daughter she once knew but what her hatred and wrongdoing had transformed her into. Rescuers made their way to Bellemonte Mansion and what they found was an absolute bloodbath. Even before they reached the mansion, they found the first victims crashed on side of the road shot dead with arrows. When they did reach the mansion, more bodies lay in the yard even before they gained access to the carnage inside. Reinforcements from National Guard units answered police calls for help as the only survivors had been butchered so badly that they had been to be evacuated immediately.

The survivors told a harrowing tale of a superhuman killer in a devil mask that wouldn't die. It was a story that rescuers would have ignored if all the survivors weren't telling the same story but each their own separate part of it. Either this was a gang of women wearing masks and body armor, or it was something that had to be supernatural... something not uncommon in Devil's Bayou! Within hours, agents representing the covert government agency Dark Op's in Louisiana were on the scene investigating what had taken place. Agent Ginger Nix took command of the scene and was called to examine a particular body impaled naked on a wall ripped open and dressed out like a butchered deer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also missing from the woman was the front of her skull as it had been smashed and broken away with some of the witnesses saying the killer was wearing it later during the mayhem. Being empathic and possessing extrasensory perception, Agent Nix knew that this was the mother of the mass murderer. Her sister, Katarina, was among the survivors having been thrown through the second-story plate glass window onto a spiked fence below but was still clinging to life. While others worked on the level above, Agent Nix found her way to the level below where she found Jennifer's butchered friends.

She would also begin sensing events from centuries past that began materializing before her as visions allowing her to bear witness to Native Americans slaughtered by the French, the building of the mansion and the activities of the Culte de Salomé. She bore witness to the killing of the cult members, the burning of their bodies and then how part of the mansion was collapsed on top of them. Hélène was born to possess a seed of evil that had been placed and passed on, through marriage, until manifesting within Jennifer Hart. Lorraine's maiden name had been Bellemont and her husband was a descendant of Benjamin Hart thus bringing two cursed bloodlines

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just as quickly as these visions came to Agent Nix, they would be gone as she can only see flashes of history connected to her investigations. The effort had drained Agent Nix causing her to fall to her knees. As her hand fell upon the skull of Maman Brigitte, she could sense that Salomé did not exist withing Jennifer as was the original intent. The demon had moved on leaving only her essence which merged with the dark spirit of another that had been there all along slowly consuming Jennifer until only it remained. The name Caelen Gáeth came to Agent Nix revealing even more secrets as the souls of countless dead reached out to her which the dark soul had slain during its existence.

Agent Nix now found herself in a battle for her own soul as Maman Brigitte sought to possess her as the angry spirit wanted to finish what she had started. She saw Jennifer reading from a grimoire that had been hidden by Maman Brigitte and which she now held in her own hands. Her innocence lost and possessed by the demon, Jennifer's bloodlust had erupted in a murderous frenzy she couldn't control even if she wanted to. Whatever had befallen Jennifer, Agent Nix could sense there would be no undoing it as she would also come to learn that she was also an Unholy, a race of beings Agent Nix was trained to know about and which she knew cannot ever truly die.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jennifer was now something different than she had been, something darker that was driven by violent urges to kill anything that got in the way of her mission to wipe out her own bloodline. Each member of the Unholy is different so that there is no one given way to bring them down or to protect yourself against them. Agent Nix knew this and learning that this was what she was dealing with meant a commitment of time and resources because she also knew that Caelen Gáeth was a type of Wraith called a Crym dubh and her agents were not prepared to do battle with a creature like this.

Agent Nix would call in specialists known as the Men in Black to deal with Jennifer while her agents began ordering police and military out of the area because all they could do was die trying to subdue their target. Calling everyone back to her base of operations, Agent Nix was in for yet another unpleasant surprise. While she had been below ground, agents heard the sound of 1950's rock 'n' roll music coming from the tower and the car they found in it previously roared to life exploding forth through them. Disappearing into the surrounding haze through a hail of bullets, the car disappeared with no one driving it revealing yet another wraith which was unheard of.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wraiths take many forms and Agent Nix knew that these two were connected and that both had now eluded her. She would be assigned this case and partnered with a fixer named Michael Dare whose job was to collect the bodies to begin a coverup of the days' events. The Jennifer Hart case would be given the codename Heartbreaker because Agent Dare thought she was a heartbreaker and found her to be attractive. Over the years that followed, agents Nix and Dare would only succeed in protecting some of her intended victims and record what they learned about Jennifer as they went.

While learning that Jennifer's targets were her own family, there was no pattern to follow except to warn the family as best they could and monitor them for activities that might indicate they are targets. Agent Dare would develop a theory that Heartbreaker does operate on some sort of internal clock where if her intended victims can survive long enough, she moves on as there are too many potential victims for her to linger too long. Her bloodline could have thousands or even tens of thousands of members but those with the strongest relation to her seem to be primary targets and she will return to them making it more possible to track her.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unlike other such wraiths, Heartbreaker does retain more of a human quality when not stalking her victims. She's been known to appear without her masks and costumes in places like bars where she even drinks a beer or eats a pizza. Those pursuing her learned this because if anyone gives her a hard time thinking she's just some woman there for a good time, she has reverted to her dark persona and torn the place apart. She's even known to flirt with men and when she learned of the codename given to her, she began doing so with Agent Dare. Jennifer even worked it into her methodology ripping out hearts and using the ideograph of a heart drawn or painted out in blood.

The one trait about Heartbreaker that doesn't change is that she never speaks as her use of body language often is enough to convey her thoughts. At most, all that's been heard from her is a guttural sound from the back of her throat when exerting herself or becoming frustrated. While she might use any weapon of convenience, she is known more for using hammers and having a preference for sledgehammers to crush rather than to cut. She likes music from the 50's to the 70's and that often plays a part in her activities as any device that can play music will often begin playing her music when she's around.

POWERS & ABILITIES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Crym dubh is a type of wraith whose intelligence level seems responsive more than constant. They tend to be almost mindless for this reason, functioning on instinct rather than with forethought. There remain sparks of memory from lives once lived which explains why Heartbreaker seems this way one moment, then clearly demonstrates a greater intellect and personality the next. Wraiths of this type are extremely difficult to deal with because they are linked to a living bloodline which preserves them until it is extinguished. At the core of her being, this is what Heartbreaker is but there are many layers to her being and her intellect is not so limited.

Her physical form is not indestructible as she has been seemingly destroyed on more than one occasion. On one occasion, she was pushed into a vat of acid where her flesh dissolved away... but her bones survived allowing her to regenerate. She was seemingly destroyed by an explosion and consumed by the resulting inferno only to be reborn in the body of a young cousin who had recently died. This transference could only happen with a relative of a Crym dubh though, being Unholy, it could happen with anyone. A bullet to the head may seem to stop her one moment, but the next it barely slows her down. She has had her head cut off only to pick it up and put it back in its place.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heartbreaker has certain demonic attributes imparted upon her from the attempt to use her ancestor as a host for the demoness Salomé. She has red, glassy horns that sometimes appear like fire and chrome that sometimes appear to be part of her mask. She can grow a long forked tail from the base of her spine, long black talons spring from her fingertips, her teeth can become like daggers and her skin can become red like her tail and horns. Her costume centers on her mask which is formed from the broken skulls of victims and is partially absorbed into her own face. The gasmask and fetish attire seem to finish out her devilish appearance and personality.

The costume can become heavily damaged and only recreates itself when she turns a new skull into part of her mask also allowing her to create weapons such as sledgehammers, daggers with handles made from human bone, a pump-action shotgun or even a crossbow. The skull also allows her the ability to take on the appearance of that person in female form and retains the ability to take on their likeness later. This ability often occurs when she's trying to get information or just wants to have some fun without anyone knowing it's her. Her hair color can change to any color including pink, blue or purple and while her costume can be revealing, it can also be more of a latex bodysuit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But Jennifer is also Unholy meaning that even if there are ways to destroy a Crym dubh, that would not work on her as she cannot truly die now that she has fully awakened and knows she is Unholy. This may explain other abilities like materializing weapons such as bone-handled daggers, sledgehammers, and even a pump-action shotgun all seemingly made with human bone. She has the ability to seemingly disappear when no one is looking and then to reappear elsewhere. This does not seem to be a power such as teleportation or becoming invisible as she's still present nearby having only somehow phase-shifted by some other supernatural means yet to be explained.

Once she finds a target, Heartbreaker can track them wherever they go within a general area where she often seems slow and methodical in stalking her prey to better scope her surroundings. The hunt seems important to all Crym dubh in as much as the killing itself. But, she has the ability to shake it off when facing threats because her demon-side emerges making her faster, stronger, more agile and... hungrier! Her childhood traumas can be a weakness as calling her Frankenstein can cause her intellect to diminish into a murderous rage, speaking of her father can calm her while bullies and snobs can distract her into hunting them instead of an intended target.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE DEMON
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Demon is a name Jennifer and her father gave to a 1950 Mercury Eight that they found abandoned in Devil's Bayou. They completed everything about the rebuild except the paint job by the time of her father's death. Jennifer mixed his ashes with metal flakes into the paint giving the Demon a Candy Apple Red color. It can, however, change its paint color into whatever color it or Jennifer desires and while it isn't exactly known if the Demon is truly indestructible; it has been burned, crushed and blown up only to rebuild itself.

The Demon often slams into things to commit acts of destruction, blasts classic rock music, a 12v train horn, and its engine roars loudly to make its presence known. Because it can possess and rebuild itself from other cars, it has integrated advances in technology into its design without substantially changing that design. Where she tends to be more a creature of finesse and sensuality, the Demon is pure destructive force! Should she get in trouble, the Demon comes to her rescue as even though she cannot be killed, she does have vulnerabilities like all Unholy. After one intense explosion with Heartbreaker inside, she emerged fused with it as a form of cybernetic entity possibly due to her Unholy nature.

But does the spirit of her father truly possess the Demon? Darkness had always been a part of Jennifer passing from mother to daughter, made toxic by a body wracked with pain and nurtured by a mother's hate. Only her father's love preserved the good within Jennifer and his death created a need for the one thing she no longer possessed. So, it is possible that the Demon is a manifestation of that fatherly love rather than actually being her father... but then again, she is proof that the supernatural does exist. Heartbreaker doesn't actually seem to drive the Demon as the two seemingly separate with it being said that where the Demon goes, Hell and Heartbreaker are soon to follow.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPIRIT BEASTS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Like all Unholy, Heartbreaker has spirit beasts of which there are three that merge together to form the Demon. The most powerful of these is an insect known as the Hercules Beetle which correlates somewhat to the shape of a 1950 Mercury-Eight. It represents strength, power and protective armor that can actually change its color. It is believed that it becomes her oversized crossbow that can fire spear-sized arrows when she wields it. Heartbreaker calls this beast Ogún after the Loa known as the "God of Iron" and has another form as it can appear as a large, black pitbull terrier with the same name.

Another is a skunk that transforms into her shotgun which not only fires explosive bursts, it fires shells with overpowering stench and is worse than teargas because Heartbreaker has no issue with "skunking" an adversary. The third spirit beast Heartbreaker possesses is a goat. The goat becomes her daggers and its disembodied bleating is used for effect to create anxiety and confusion. But, it is in combining the spirit beasts that the greatest manifestation of their power emerges... they become the Demon! Although few have ever seen this transformation, it explains where the Demon comes from and what happens to the spirit beasts found hidden among the tattoos upon her body.
