You're Somebody Else

Well you look like yourself

But you're somebody else

Only it ain't on the surface

Well you talk like yourself

No, I hear someone else though

Now you're making me nervous


A healer isn't so much taught as born. At least the good ones. The ones that feel the need to help others, to fix illnesses and injuries or just right the wrongs for people. Sometimes, it's just practical, logical. There's some caring, but empathy can be hard to maintain, when you can't win them all. This healer isn't quite there yet, but she has her moments. For the most part, she relates to and cares about her patients beyond their wounds. Sometimes, not so much.

You're driven to fix others, body, mind or spirit. You can't stand to see others suffer or in distress. Do what you can for those in need and make the world a better place one person at a time.

Role in Slasher

Willow comes from a rural family of outdoorsy types, Dad a logger (don't call him a lumberjack!) and Mom a stay-at-home wife who gardens and forages a good deal of their food. Living off the land is what they do. She learned a fair bit of medicinal herbology from her mother while growing up, and the rest of her medical training came from formal, structured classes. She's a certified paramedic and nurse.

The lodge is only a bit over 100 miles from home, and she's settled in nicely as one of the on-call medical staff. There's no doctor on-site, but she and another EMT can cover most of what comes up - at least long enough for an ambulance to get there. Serious emergencies get a chopper brought in, but she's never seen anything that serious in her two years on the job. Usually it's cuts, scrapes, bad sunburns and sprains. Easy stuff.

Medical Staff: Always on-call!

Country Kid: She grew up and has lived in the rural parts of Oregon her entire life.


Brawn: Normal
Finesse: Poor
+ Recovery (Positive)

She's clumsy as hell, could trip over a change in air pressure. But she recovers quick, her injuries are mostly bruises or scrapes, nothing catastrophic.
Brains: Good
+ Medicine (Positive)

Some people just have a knack. For knowing what's wrong, for figuring out the problem, but not just that, for coming up with a solution and fixing it. That's Willow, when it comes to medicine.
- Gullible (Negative)

Got a good sob story? If delivered with feeling, Willow will totally believe it. Probably to do with her optimism, she believes the best of people.
Spirit: Normal
+ Empathic (Positive)

Empathy is required for good bedside manner and calming people down in crazy crisis situations. Willow's always been able to at least fake it when she needs it, even if she can't summon up anything genuine at that point!
+ Optimist (Positive)

Willow's always expecting the best. Sure, she has bad days, but for the most part, she's always expecting something better around the corner. It makes her look past things that might normally depress or drain others.

Perks and Quirks

+ From Beyond the Grave
+ Local Lore (Freebie)

Willow grew up in a rural area, and has worked in this area for some time.
+ Danger Sense

Maybe she'll know right before Doomed kicks in!
+ Area of Expertise

- Small Favour
- Two-Left Feet

Clumsy. That's Willow. Always tripping, bumping into things. It's rare that she's not bruised or scraped somewhere.
- Doomed


Donna Blaine (Slasher)

Medical Assistant
Donna is not the brightest star, she wants to be an EMT, or that's what she says today. She and Willow met in school, but even with the redhead's help, Donna couldn't pass the courses required to get a job. So she tags along with Willow. The two are BFFs, even though they're very different people.

First Story: Slasher

A waking world of innocence

So grave those first born cries

When life begins with needles and pins

It ends with Swords and Knives

Tears for Fears - Swords and Knives

Out of the Woods

Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

I don't think that I can really survive

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow

But God only knows what I can do right now

Meatloaf - Paradise by the Dashboard Light
