Faceclaim: Mia Kirshner
Lilith is a rather mysterious person. No one really knows much about her, no one really dares. She oozes power and sexuality to a point of toxicity, and with reason. She is the sole responsible for drugs being available in Tala Springs to begin with. Not to mention providing alcohol to minors, poached animals (including endangered species) and anything that your dark little heart may desire. Her operations extend outside of Tala of course, and has some very powerful clients who are interested in acquiring specimens of the local protected fauna, dead or alive. Of course she is extremely cunning and manipulative, a real snake in the grass both figuratively and literally. She doesn’t get her own hands dirty ever, however when it comes to her fangs, she doesn’t hesitate. What does it matter? Her victims never get away, and if the last thing they see is a woman turning in to a snake, the horror doesn’t have time to settle in before the venom does. She doesn’t have any family, snakes never do, and no one is quite sure where she came from, but has always seemed to be in the background, to most present inhabitants.
Lilith has little to no regards for animal and human lives and as little as she cares about the other graced, she knows the rules and wouldn’t harm them unless attacked. She is solitary and needs to spend a lot of time alone, both as a snake and as a woman, to maintain balance and avoid snapping, particularly at some of the more irritating individuals. She does however love plants and view gardening and botany as a therapeutic pastime. Naturally, she enjoys most the kind of plants snakes like to nestle in, but she also is affectionate of predatory and venomous plants. Venus Fly Traps anyone?
Cold and calculating, she is mostly devoid of any real emotion, particularly those pertaining to empathy and kinship. In fact it was a shock to her the first time she phased in to a woman, to discover this new brain layers on top of the basic reptilian brain she only possessed as a snake. Her underlings respect and fear her, none of them aware of her secret, contributing to the mythology surrounding her. None of the locals would ever dare get in her way and the Sheriff has never been capable of pinching her, even if he knows she’s responsible for a handful of illegal activities, what can he do when there is no direct evidence linking her to it? She runs an adult store as a front, knowing very few people would ever visit, let alone shop at it. Kind of strange no one wonders how she hasn’t gone bankrupt. But when two journalists appear in town to investigate strange phenomena, Lilith knows things might just be thrown out of balance. She finds out one of her own underlings called them in, greatly annoyed at this fact but knowing it is too late now to get rid of her.
(The ones I’m working on, I’ll let T make her own announcements. Feel free to ask me more about the characters, at least those I already have ideas for.)
