Random Facts:

1. Banshees are unique in that they are not the departed souls of humans or witches, but of fey. Nuala cannot recall much of her former frolick, though, as the departed move onto the dark dimension, Tenebris.

2. Aside from being the lead vocalist for Empty Obsessions (Storm Cloud’s fusion metal band), she’s also a member of the Astronomy Club and the secretary for the Haunter Student Council. This makes her the third-most revered member of the undead on campus after Blodwen and Maria, the respective president and VP.

3. Yes, Nuala can technically kill people with her wail, but that’s at her discretion. As a young fairy, she had an affinity for sound and empathic magick, which aided her in controlling the deadliness of her shriek. So instead of killing any audience Empty Obsessions might have, she attracts a big crowd and keeps them wanting more.

4. Her favorite animals to morph into are hooded crows and mountain hares. She just finds the former cool, but Nuala distinctly remembers having a hare named Killigan as a familiar while she was alive–and though she has not been able to convince Omoyeni to confirm it, she suspects that Killigan was reborn into Kermit, her natterjack toad familiar. You read that correctly: Nuala the Banshee, an undead Enchanter, has a familiar. While this phenomenon is rare, it isn’t unheard of.

5. Thanks to her affinity for emotions and her impulsive nature, Nuala has a tendency to play matchmaker. She currently has her sights set on Storm and Cinnamon, though Shamecca’s close friendship with Deandrae has also caught her eye.

Beneath the moon are the logos for Twitter and Reddit accompanied by the username "nattypenn," and beneath that is the old logo for Instagram with the username "nattypennwastaken."
