Name (last, first middle): Sinnet, Mallory
Age: Mallie looks twenty-five. She is actually thirty four. The Wendigo has its possessed age slowly so that it may last longer. The Wendigo's age is unknown, but it is quite ancient.
Gender: Mallie: Female. Wendigo: None.
Height: Mal: Five feet. Wendigo: Five feet, eight inches.
Weight (approx.): Mal: 110 lbs. Wedigo: 180 lbs.
Eye Color/Shape: Mal: Blue-grey/Round. Wendigo: Red/Round, unnaturally wide, dilated.
Build (slight, broad-shouldered, etc.): The Wendigo is thin, looking somewhat starved, and yet it has strength despite its haggard appearance. Its limbs are elongated to inhuman lengths, it's nails and teeth grow terribly sharp.
Mallory looks fragile, like a porcelain doll. She has a small bust and rear, is quite skinny, but her legs look lovely.
Skin Tone: Mallory: Pale. Wendigo: Sickly, freakishly pale.
Hair Colour/Length/Usual Style:
Mal: Naturally, she is born a red head. She dyed her hair black./Chin length. As a villain, she wears extensions that reach her waist. That, along with her pale skin, make her look a bit like Morticia Addams./It is always left loose. Only when she knows that it will be a hindrance during crimes will she pin it up or put it in a slightly messy fishtail braid.
Wendigo: An oily black./ Up to its shoulders./ Left alone. It is stringy and unkept.
Birthmarks, Freckles?: Mallory has two moles, one on her shoulder and one on her right inner thigh. The Wendigo has nothing.
Distinguishing Features (scars, cross-eyed, etc.): Malhas scars due to her numerous surgeries. She has a scar on the right side of her neck, a scar on her left breast, and one on each of her ankles, at the very back. The scars on her neck and breast came from surgeries she had because of her prematurity. The scars on her legs came from a surgery she had when she was a young girl to prevent her from walking on tip-toe. She still does walk like that at times.
She may not look as if she is looking at someone, but she is. Her eyesight is better on her left than on her right eye. When she's looking at someone it seems as if she is looking at the space next to a person's head.
The Wendigo would have had scars if it hadn't been for its healing abilities. It's eyesight is slightly blurry.
Glasses?: Malwears glasses with a mild prescription. She wears hard contacts when doing what Scarecrow instructs.

Three words to describe your character?: Mallory: Obedient, intelligent, odd. Wendigo: Evil, manipulative, starved.
Overall Personality (in one to two paragraphs): If she's with people that she just has to get along with for a short amount of time, she'll act polite, but with people that she's known for at least a year she'll act witty, sarcastic, and eccentric. She's always been the one not to follow many trends and goes by the beat of her own morbid, gothic drum. She is very cultured and slightly manipulative. Mallory is very interested in psychology, analyzing people and their reasoning non-stop. Even if the person she's analyzing just so happens to be someone she's never met before, she'll still study his or her behavior and movement. If she finds something off, she'll silently think upon it. She is very opinionated and can be critical, nitpicky even. She's always looking for a motive and believes that not everyone is pure crazy or evil. She could be wrong, though. She is prone to daydreaming, mostly about plots and adventures.
She also has low self-esteem and is a bit too bold, coming off as annoying, a jerk, or negative. She gets distracted if something catches her interest and her curiosity can sometimes be fatal. She can be too harsh and critical, which makes some people not want to be around her. Mallie can space out at times and can be antisocial or overly quiet when she is concentrating on something very hard. She is even-tempered most of the time, but when she gets angry she is cold and cutting, sometimes saying things that she would regret. Mal tries to remain neutral and is a pacifist unless she feels that something is morally wrong, or the Wendigo inside her starts gaining more of an upper hand. Then, she turns evil, sadistic, and beastly. She has very strong morals and is very loyal despite her eating habits and the Wendigo inside her. She is able to see both sides to an argument and likes having a laugh. However, after becoming a Wendigo, she finds it hard to have a laugh nowadays.
Are they married, or have they ever been married (specify)?: No, they have not.
Do they swing towards men or women?: Mal: Men. Wendigo: None.
Any important people in their life?: Mal: Scarecrow and Batman. Wendigo: Only its host, and even then it finds them expendable. It hates Batman immensely, though.
Are they good, bad, or neutral?: Mallory is neutral, but she works for the Scarecrow in exchange for him giving her an antidote.
The Wendigo is pure evil.
I'd like to stay away from any real superpowers here (such as being able to fly for no reason and such, though exceptions can be made), but what are your character's hero or villain techniques (such as Batman and his cool gadgets, or the Joker and his laughing gas, etc.)?:
• Looks human, but can change into a Wendigo at will.
• Must change once a week and thus give the Wendigo full control of her body for half a day to gorge itself. The process is quite painful.
• Has enhanced strength, durability, hearing, etc.
• She can withstand dire temperatures.
• She can mimic voices and is an expert hunter.
• Can cause Wendigo Fever.
• She is able manipulate the weather.
• Can summon dark creatures to attack her enemies.
• The Wendigo is a friend of any of natures animals, especially dangerous ones.
• Her aunt taught her how to chi-block, contort her body, and do gymnastics. She practiced every other day ever since she was twelve and still practices whenever she helps Scarecrow with his heists.
• She's strong when it comes to words, and she's smart.
• She is very creative when it comes to plans, and gives input when asked.
• when in an argument about something that she believes in she won't back down.
• She can be optimistic at times (when she isn't tired).
• Mal is good at analyzing people, always ready to do so.
• Her uncle took her hunting regularly as a teen. She still keeps that hobby to this day, so she knows her way around the woods. She can wield a rifle and other hunting utensils with relative familiarity, and can survive in the woods be it because of her Wendigo's connection to it or not.
• She uses a knife and a bit of fear gas when working with Crane. She carries a gas mask with her as well.
• She adapts easily to new environments, unused to staying in a place for a super long amount of time.
• Although she isn't the smartest, strongest, most clever woman alive, Mallory is one of the most loyal classy, understanding women in this asylum. The Wendigo is a different story, however.
• She doesn't like conflict unless she feels strongly about something, so she is pretty nice/easy-going.
• Mal puts her feelings above all else. Smarts don't make a person to her; feels do.
• Whenever you can get her to talk to you, you'll hear her say things about empathy and all other sorts of feelings and whatnot.
• While in hospitals, she began the hobby of mimicking voices. Now she can do so with practice after studying a persons speech for a while.
• Is a marvelous cook and is musically talented, both vocally and instrumentally.
Since she does have a superpower of sorts, I'll give her weaknesses along with her powers. These weaknesses are both her weaknesses power-wise and person-wise.
• She's too obedient and can sometimes be seen as a coward despite how strong her moral compass is.
• She suffers abandonment issues and lacks social skills, so she may seem a bit clingy or easily startled.
• Sometimes she can't talk to new people because anxiety starts to build up within her, but she tries to be as open as she can.
• Her sleepwalking poses a problem, often alarming others and getting her into trouble if she doesn't have her medication or restraints.
• her nightmares and sicknesses constantly leave her fatigued and exhausted. She feels exhausted but the Wendigo won't allow her to sleep.
• She never has had a true friend who wanted her as a close confidant and therefore is tentative and wary about making friends.
• Mallory is very meek and quiet, always thinking if others before herself. Which can be a problem since she does so too much that it can hinder her progress. She doesn't really have much backbone, so to speak. It takes a lot to bring it out. However, when it comes to the antidote to get the Wendigo out of her, then she will stop at nothing in her desperate search to find such a solution.
• Although it is hard to get her angry, when she is angry it can often lead to her saying cold and cutting remarks that she'll later regret. Or not, depending.
• She has a tendency to lie to herself often, but can't really lie to others unless they deserve it. Otherwise, it eats her up inside.
• Pure silver, once it wounds her, takes longer to heal and greatly hurts her. It can kill her if a fatal wound is brought upon her. In other words, silver is lethal to a Wendigo.
• A fire must be kept burning at all times to keep her from attacking. But it won't last long.
• When dealing with a Wendigo be sure to have as many magical artifacts as you can.
• She must turn into a Wendigo once a week for half a day.
• She gets hungry terribly easily. Since the Wendigo gorges itself once a week, when Mal changes back to a human she automatically pukes up whatever her human body can't contain. This causes her to be sick soon after the Wendigo is done feasting and leaves her weak, needing to eat despite how sick she feels.
What sort of education do they have?: Mallory has had a fine education, attending Gotham University after attending a prestigous school in
The Wendigo is wise, but it only came from experience.
Current Occupation: Psychiatrist and author.
Their relationship with their family?: Her parents died a short while after she was born so she never got to build a proper relationship with them. She thought that she had a great relationship with her aunt and uncle until she found out that they had been feeding her human flesh in order to prepare for her becoming a Wendigo. After that, she cut off all ties from them, disgusted and hurt. Her other relatives, convinced that she was a horrible, beastly child, threw her away to her aunt and uncle, becoming unresponsive since. So, now, Mal feels as if she has no family.
Sum up their history, please (one to three paragraphs)?: (I'd like to discuss whatever in Mal's bio mentions Crane and Batman with the people who play Batman and Crane, please. I'm still putting whatever mentions Crane and Batman here anyway so that the person who plays Crane or/and Batman can see for themselves if they approve it or not.)
Mallory Sinnet had trouble from the start, born prematurely on a cloudy October the ninth. Her parents died soon after her birth in a car accident. Mallory was alone. She was sent from relative to relative as they pondered what to do with her. With each relative she met, something horrid would occur. As a child, Little Mal was ignored by adults and children alike. The girl got hurt and sick frequently, as a result of her prematurity and bad luck streak. She began to fear loneliness and, as she grew older, hospitals. She was sent to a hospital to deal with her illnesses and injuries and eventually sent to a mental institution at age ten when she was under the care of aunt Ramona and uncle Xandre, one of the few pairs of relatives who were left trying to tolerate her. Mallory had been having nightmares and sleepwalking. They got tired of it and deemed her insane once they heard of her nightmares and found her sleepwalking. She was almost out of people from her huge family to be sent to.
When she became a certain age, a pair of long lost relatives appeared to take care of her, supervise her, aunt Guinevere and uncle Olaf, a mortician and a grave tender, respectively. She has been adjusting to life with them in Gotham well enough, liking them a lot more than her other relatives because of their tolerance for her and because of their eccentricity. She had been living with them for a long time. Her uncle taught her sign language in order to converse with her deaf aunt. Everything seemed great at the time. Or so she thought. Mal attended college and got a masters degree in psychology and literature.
When Mallory was twenty-five, she had slept walked, dreaming of snow and a hideous creature. When she awoke, Mallory found herself in the nearby woods. She got lost but carefully ate snacks her guardians had given her. At night, that thing came, that demon. It looked horrible, with a bloodied claws and huge eyes, the pupils dilated. She screamed and tried to escape when the beast charged at her. She couldn't and threw things at it in desperation. It ate the snacks she had before possessing her. Later, after Mal was found and taken to the hospital. She brushed the incident off, thinking that she was probably hallucinating. Her guardians doted on her when she was released and everything seemed to go back to normal. The hunger pains started within a week with the dreams of the ice and the creature she had seen in the woods becoming more frequent. Then, on a stormy Monday, she changed and hunted for the first time. After Monday, Mallory found out that for most of her time spent with her aunt and uncle, they had been tampering with her meals, subtly placing bits of human body parts into said meals to prepare her for becoming a Wendigo. That duty had to be passed on to a member of the family (or more) for each generation. She was horrified and was kept at home for a month. In that period of time she learned to control herself and the demon inside her. She learned how to regulate her eating habits, learned what she had become, what abilities she now possessed, and what she had to suffer through. After the month was up, Mallory began working again.
She had interacted with Crane at some point thanks to a friend who had introduced them to eachother online back in college. They said that they would keep in touch. Neither knew that they lived so close to one another, attending the same college. Once done with college, Mallory went back to Gotham and stayed in an apartment while looking for a job. Her aunt brought her meals once a week and she kept in touch with Crane via emails and phone calls. They had become good friends although they never exchanged personal information, but their interactions stopped abruptly when Crane was fired from Arkham. The girl tried to contact him, but none of her attempts were answered. Jonathan was too busy trying to get revenge and perfect his fear toxin. He attempted to contact her later on, but it was during the time that she was adjusting to her Wendigo state. Eventually, both of them decided that it was too late, a bit awkward, and risky to continue contacting eachother. They were both too busy and didn't want the other to know what they had become.
Now, years later, Mallory has earned a job as a psychiatrist at Arkham, seeing the Mad Hatter, Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent, the Scarecrow, and Harley Quinn, among others, regularly. Mallory had recognized Jonathan's voice from the phone calls they had shared and had a bunch that the lunatic was her old friend, but never acted upon it for fear of it being unprofessional and that he'd not really be the man she had talked with back in college, that Crane would only use her vulnerability against her. She is able to see their side of things, which makes her a valuable asset. As a psychiatrist, she is often asked by the police to examine a crime scene and help them figure out whoever did such deeds. She had an uncanny ability to empathize with killers, Jeremiah Arkham noticed, and dropped in a word about her to Comissioner Gordon. Now, each time she helps sove a case, not only does she jump into the killers' mindset, each time a case ends she either sleeps comfortably for a week or is constantly awake because of the nightmares. Batman knows her secret, for he had run into her Wendigo form on numerous occasions. He had at some point captured the Wendigo to keep it from eating any more pedestrians. He was only mildly surprised when he found out that she was the Wendigo, but once he saw her disheveled, fearful state, the caped crusader offered to help her find a cure. She accepted and they haven't spoken of that night again.
Crane, while looking for animals to test his fear gas on, ran into her when she is a Wendigo. She nearly killed him, but he managed to wound her and capture her, keeping her prisoner in a silver cage in his basement until the transformation wore off.
At first, Crane is fascined by the nature of the Wendigo. Then, he began plotting and researching, finding out more about what he later knew was the Wendigo. He knew that when he managed to control the creature, it would be easy to procure test subjects for his fear toxin experiments and instill Gotham with fear. With this creature, he would be unstoppable so long as its weakness was left unknown. Even better, perhaps he could replicate the Wendigo's physical state in himself. That would be enough to get rid of the bat and bring Gotham to its knees.
Unfortunately, things got complicated when Crane finds out that the Wendigo is possessing someone. Now Crane can't help but feel envious that this woman could hold such power and instill fear so easily on people. His envy turned into hatred when he realized that she had a pathological fear of it. Nevertheless, Crane stuck to his idea. He would just have to offer her something she wouldn't be able to refuse. He could tell by her desperation and feelings towards the Wendigo that she would want an antidote. He would procure her with one if she did what he asked when he asked it. At first, Mallory was reluctant to help the Scarecrow. But even though Batman had offered to help her (in order to keep Gotham citizens safe) he hasn't told her anything of the antidote. Besides, it would do to have a back up and hopefully Crane would give her the details Batman wouldn't. So now Mallory helps the Scarecrow when he tells her to. If she does not, she receives no antidote.
However, Crane has been deceiving her. His alleged "cure" is actually intended to translate the Wendigo's powers to himself, or manipulate the Wendigo to do his bidding. Perhaps, his "cure" is designed as a virus that adopts the Wendigo's characteristics and pass them on to others. (Whichever you think is better.) Thus this prolongs his time with the Wendigo. He needs the creature to help him take care of Gotham and the Bat once and for all, anyhow. And he would like to analyze its behavior as much as he could in order to see if its nature could be replicated into himself. He wouldn't let such an opportunity go to waste.
Later when they exchange numbers (Crane using a prepaid phone.) Crane realizes that he had seen that number before. Lo and behold, after checking the sheets of paper in which he had written his contact information in case he needed it to find test subjects (also because it was too risky to have a phone), Crane finds the number. Mallory was at one point his companion. Crane feels some nostalgia for the relationship that started to develop between them. Now he feels a tad bit guilty for deceiving her like this, but he doesn't dare show it. Instead, Crane continues to try to manipulate her and tones down his deceit, trying to get her to be more accustomed with her Wendigo form, to not see it as a monster but as an asset, a tool that isn't as bad as it seems at first.
Then he begins administering his fear gas onto her. Mallory stays in the cage and battles it out with the Wendigo until the Wendigo stops. Crane does this at first to analyze her reaction to the fear toxin, but later as she begins winning the internal battles with the Wendigo, wounding it with a silver sword while in her mind, he sees that he can get her to control it. When she is at a point where in her battles she has multiple attempts to kill it, Crane is pleased that it stops her somehow but that she manages to force it to retreat far into her mind. Mal begins explaining to him that now that she has been doing these sessions and has been triumphing against the Wendigo, she now knows that she does have the power to control it. Then she tells him that when she has to turn into a Wendigo each week she can now control her actions and when she stops.
The feeling of actual romantic attraction develops more after Mallie faces her fears and controls the Wendigo: he begins to both love her, and respect her. He tries to convince her to keep the Wendigo once she learned to control it.
Batman hasn't abandoned Mallory, but he strongly disapproves of her decision and refuses to divulge any information he receives that can help cure her. He'll give her the solution once it is ready. However, since he pities her state and, more importantly, wishes to keep the people of Gotham safe, he still works to help cure her.
The Roleplay Sample (two to three paragraphs):
Mallory staggered out of the alley she had found herself in that night. Bloody and disheveled, she sluggishly made her way to her apartment, glad that the darkness concealed her. Her whole body ached, that hissing voice cackled in her head, creating a pounding headache and a slight ringing in her ears. Clutching her head, the brunette felt her stomach ache. She swallowed a bit of vomit that rose in her throat, grimacing at the acidic taste. "I can hold it down until I get home." Mal murmured to herself, ignoring her trembling. "I've done it before."
It was a relief when she finally reached her door. Home seemed like such a heavenly sight, a familiar place full of memories, whch was exactly what she needed sice he couldn't place where she had been in the last couple of hours. That feeling promptly vanished once she had entered the vicinity. Withheld nausea overcame Mallorys' senses, bubbling up her throat and sending pangs of pain to her chest. Dashing madly to the restroom, she had barely made it to the toilet before she began dry-heaving. Her throat constricted with the strain of regurgitating the Wendigo's meal. The shock never wore off when she found a limb amidst the vomit and chunks of meat in her toilet.
There lay a hand and, wide-eyed, the woman recoiled, scrambling away from it hastily. Tears had already been streaming down her face from the effort it took to vomit all of that meat she was unable to hold. Now said tears turned from pain to a mixture of emotions; sadness, hatred, disgust, pity. Wiping vomit and spittle from her lips, she didn't bother to wipe the tears away as well. Mallory drew her knees close to her and buried her face into her kneecaps. She stayed like that for a while, her shoulders heaving with the force of her silent sobs. After Mal had regained control of her emotions, she stood, flushed the toilet, and brushed her teeth thoroughly, keeping her eyes away from her reflection. Mallory used mouthwash and flossed, for good measure. She wanted anything that reminded her of that monster out of her. She wanted that monster out of her. She wanted it out no matter what it took.
After Mallory was sure that she had gotten all the remnants of her meal out of her, she ignored the hunger that already gnawed at her, changed into her nightclothes, and went to lay down on her bed, leaving her bedside lamp on. Closing her eyes, she willed the nightmares and that voice away. Once she was successful in her attempt to sleep she got out of her bed, a blank expression on her face. She began to walk, her movements slow. What she did that night wouldn't be remembered by her the morning after. Those nights never were.
(Constructive criticism is appreciated. But remember: Be helpful, not harsh or unreasonable.)
