A cause, a fight, an ideal. A Vigilante stands for something and goes to great lengths to protect it. They'd be idealistic if they weren't also pragmatic: something needs to get done and no one's doing anything yet so it may as well be them. The wrongs will be righted one way or another.

You're righting wrongs and settling scores whether others see it or not. You have a very personal code of honor, and it demands justice. That's what you do: bring justice.

No memento mori from this story yet.

The Vigilante is a dark-haired young woman of 5'7" in height when flat-footed. She is usually not flat-footed, favouring as she does black combat boots. Dark-haired, pale, blue-eyed, she is more prone to scowls than smiles by a long shot. She dresses rather simply, and the majority of her wardrobe is black or gray. Her frame is sturdy; some of it is muscle, and some of it isn't. She usually sports a black leather jacket with a silk lining. She has a bad case of resting bitch face and she's not afraid to use it.




Constance Martin (Carnival)

Pie Vendor
Constance married Otis Martin when she was all of seventeen years old. The marriage started off alright; for a few years, they were happy. Or at least able to pretend they were happy. But Constance and Otis couldn't conceive a child together. Was it something wrong with Constance? Something wrong with Otis? Otis liked to blame Constance, and he blamed her with his fists. She put up with it for years and years.

Then the carnival came to town. The carnival's whip artist, a glowering woman named Alice, happened across Constance on the street and noticed her black eye. Later, Alice came to the house. Otis died. Constance joined the carnival to be with her savior, the Greek goddess of Fury, Alecto. Now Constance makes little pies to sell. She's happy enough. Otis is long gone, and she likes baking. Always has.


Martha Campbell (Carnival)

Martha Campbell was never interested in boys. She liked the things men did, and she dressed like a man and worked like a man. Not everyone in a small town likes a lesbian, though, and she eventually ran afoul of some very nasty people.

The carnival was in town. Alecto punished the people hurting Martha and now Martha travels with the carnival, doing heavy lifting and smiling at the pretty ladies.


Gorgeous (Carnival)

Mean Dog
Gorgeous is a big, mean, scarred dog who used to be pitted against other dogs in fights. The name is a bit of a misnomer. His owner was a very bad man who needed to be punished, and Alecto was all for that. She took George with her after dealing with his owner, and now the huge dog is happy to follow the Fury. He likes tummy rubs, but only from a chosen few. Gorgeous serves as a guard dog, on the lookout for unfamiliar forms in the night.


Mallory Miller (Slasher)

She spent her early years in rural, Southern Oregon, her family living there because her father was a logger and it was close to his worksite. At eight she was in the car with her mother when a drunk driver ran them off the road and into a ravine. Her mother died twelve hours later from her injuries, but it was nearly 72 hours before they were found. Over two days fending for herself, stuck with her mother's body. It had an impact. They driver got off with a slap on the wrist because he was a county official's son. Dad spiraled into depression and drinking, and Mallory was sent to live with her grandparents, uprooting her from her friends at 10.

Everything she went through taught her to take care of herself, to rely on no one else. It also taught her that bad things happen and nothing gets done. No one cares. It's become easier by the day to wall herself off, to isolate her emotions. After graduating high school, she got a job as a trail guide at the Eager Beaver Lodge, about an hour or so from her grandparents' place. She's worked there ever since.


Alecto (Carnival)

Coming to America

It wasn't until 1768 or so that the Greeks came to the northern Americas; at least, that's what the history books say. Greeks from Crete, Mani, and Smyrna settled in what they called New Smyrna Beach in Florida. One Greek family - a husband, a wife, and their son, came to settle in the new world. The son, greedy, wanted to be the head of the family, and so one night he killed his father. His mother knew what he had done and felt powerless to stop him. One night she cried out to the Furies, to Alecto, and Alecto came and punished him. And others. She may have gone a little too far. Her foothold found, Alecto remained.

The going is getting rough. It's difficult to find patricides and matricides to avenge, and so mostly Alecto punishes crimes of anger. She is at her best when among those who still have an inkling of her power, those descended from the Greeks. The first colony that really took root in the United States was in New Orleans, and Alecto enjoys just a bit more worship there.

Carnival of Wonders

Alecto, who goes by 'Alice' or even just 'Al', can't use her powers for much in the carnival. There's her show, which is whip tricks with something bordering dance, which draws admirers. Mostly, her worship comes from those feeling gratitude when she goes after someone who's hurting them. Some of them, like Martha and Constance, join the Carnival to go with her.

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
