Family Background:[edit]

Isabella is a witch. Her magic is in her blood, inherited from her ancestors. The Templars claim she is the descendant of witches, as they managed to track her family to Salem, with one female member of the family being present during the witch trials there. There were no records of the woman being tried as a witch and burned at the stake. Then, a few years later, the same person shows up in the 1700 census of Kingsmouth on Solomon Island before, a decade later, appearing in what would become the state of Ohio. Her family remains there until the early 1970's, when they suddenly split apart, with the older generation moving to Australia and the younger generation moving to a remote valley in Montana.

Isabella was born in Montana to an American father and an Australian mother. Her father is the child of the younger generation that stayed in the US when the family split. It is unknown if her mother has any relation to the Australian chapter of Isabella's family, but it might not be a coincidence. Isabella had a normal childhood and did not grow up around magic. Either her parents had no magical talent of their own, or they simply did not teach her about it.


January 1st, 2000: Isabella is born.

Early 2014: Isabella's inherited magic seemingly activates after she encounters a bright golden light in the middle of a forest in Montana. The next day, she starts to cast magic without intending too; objects fly into her hand when she reaches for them, sometimes across whole rooms. After a week, when her eyes turn purple, she runs away from home.

Mid-to-late 2014: Isabella encounters an occult coven in Michigan, and spends time with them for several months, during which she learns some blood magic.

2015: Isabella is accused of being a witch by a zealous, religious community in a remote area of Michigan. They form a mob and chase after her with torches and pitchforks. Isabella is forced to use her magic to defend herself, which is caught on tape and uploaded to the internet. The Templars catch wind of the event, and bring her in before managing to scrub the video from the internet. The Templars begin training her thoroughly.

January, 2018: Isabella is deployed to Solomon Island by the Templars. After eight months in the field, she seeks employment with Knightsbridge Consulting.

October, 2018: Isabella begins training with assault rifles. After discovering she has an appreciation for guns as well, she acquires a fairly large amount of them.

Physical combat skills:[edit]

Isabella is trained in Japanese swordsmanship and, as a complement, Krav Maga. She is also trained in the usage of handguns, but prefers fighting up close as she is better at that. She has been training with assault rifles for a few months.

Elementalism magic:[edit]

Using elemental magic, Isabella is able to cast a lightning bolt and channel lightning through her blades. Her skill in fire magic is very minor as she is only really able to use it to light candles and campfires.

Blood magic:[edit]

Physical augmentation: Isabella is able to boost her speed and strength by magically feeding on her enemies blood or by drinking the contents of a potion that is pre-prepared using her own blood. Directly feeding on blood is more potent, but causes mood swings as well as faster exhaustion. Using a pre-prepared potion is far more stable.

Energy potions: She can also create potions that ward off sleep/exhaustion by enacting a ritual that includes vials filled with her own blood as well as sleeping. Rest is magically "stored" in the blood in the vials while sleeping. When consumed, they allow her to regain energy and stave off the need to sleep for the same amount of time she slept during the ritual. Using these energy potions excessively causes negative consequences like insomnia and addiction.

Blood bullets: Hollow bullets containing some of Isabella's blood. When the bullet hits a target, it shreds and deposits Isabella's blood in the body of the target. Isabella can then, for about fifteen minutes, sense the location of the target through the presence of her blood. She has also recently begun practicing with causing her blood to act like a non-lethal poison to paralyze her targets.

Miscellaneous magic:[edit]

Telekinesis: Isabella's signature skill is her powerful talent for and skill with telekinesis. It was the first magic she ever cast, and she gained control of it without any tutoring.

Glamour spells: Isabella is able to cast fairly simple glamour spells. For example, she can make others perceive her eyes to be blue, not purple. This has a range limit though, and so far, she cannot fool technological devices like cameras.

Magical dry cleaning: Using magic, Isabella can clean her clothes while still wearing them. Very useful in the field.

Miscellaneous skills:[edit]

Vehicle operation: Isabella is capable of operating basic vehicles. Examples include motorcycles and cars. She prefers automatic gears.


Bullet and blade-proof tactical vest.

Advanced ballistic face mask that also functions as a sealed gas mask. It "breathes" allowing sweat to evaporate and increases comfort for the wearer. The eye slits have bulletproof glass with a heads-up-display capable of displaying a number of parameters. The glass is also reactive, protecting against bright lights that would make it difficult to see.


A katana with a white wrapped handle.

Tactical katana. Isabella usually brings it with her into the field when combat is expected.

KM2000 Combat Knife. This is the dagger Isabella carries during everyday life as well as in the field.

Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife.

Throwing knives. Isabella has two or three on her during everyday life, and always brings more into the field.

Information that is IC but would not be widely known, if known at all.

Mental condition:[edit]

Isabella has a unique mental condition that activates when certain prerequisites are met. If she is participating in a fight to the death, she may acquire a fierce bloodlust. The bloodlust and a brutal sense of justice may also activate whenever she encounters a sufficient amount of evil; for example, human criminals who harm innocents for their own deranged enjoyment. When the mental condition is active, Isabella becomes almost psychopathic and thoroughly enjoys killing those she percieves as evil. Despite that, she does not lose control of her actions, as she does not have a difficulty with differentiating between friend and foe, or between innocent and evil. She can also manage to stop herself and return to her normal state of mind, although that takes a large amount of mental effort.


Isabella's parents are related by blood; they're aunt and nephew. They grew up separately and did not meet until they were both adults, whereupon they fell in love, married and had Isabella. They are still happily married to this day.
