Faye is an attractive woman of athletic build in her mid-thirties, who wears her hair short. She favors jackets and slacks of a professional masculine cut, though her extensive wardrobe features a wide range of styles, including some lovely dresses.



Faye Spenser is a user, and has been all her life: the only child of a moderately wealthy Dublin banker, she long ago learned how to pester and wheedle until she got exactly what she wanted. She's also always been interested in things that are forbidden, be it the local bad boy, street drugs or the occult, and pursued all of the above fervently. Several years ago she met an experienced magus in a London pub; they proceeded to have a torrid love affair that lasted almost two years, during which she was a most avid pupil of the magical arts. After she learned all she could from him, she stole several of his darker texts and went into seclusion to study them in detail.


In an abandoned Yorkshire farmhouse, she opened a portal to a nameless dimension, home to many mad gods long thought dead; she made horrible pacts with these gods, offering herself as their servant on Earth, their tool for spreading chaos and despair. In exchange for her service, they taught her the darkest of magicks, which she has used in a very effective criminal career. Now a sorceress of great power, she travels the world freely, committing remarkable thefts and quiet assassinations for the highest bidder; she only dates men who have something to teach her, and she has dated mercenaries, safecrackers and terrorists in her pursuit of knowledge.


Using her ill-gotten gains, she had an underground bunker constructed under the Icelandic Highlands, which she chose for both its splendid isolation and access to free geothermal power; she paid the contractors well, and after allowing them a week to enjoy the fruits of their labors, she hunted them down and killed them to a man, the regrettable cost of preserving her secrets.


She detests trains and airplanes (she finds them far too cramped), but thankfully never has to use them. When she's not working, she loves to tour the world's art galleries; her Icelandic bunker is decorated with a wide array of paintings, etchings and sculptures, all of course stolen, and she has impeccable taste.

This is an old NPC I'm dusting off for a potential thread for Supercape and Tiff; she was originally a PC, back in the dark days when we could play villains. This was sort of my take on the type of character you might have seen in a Hellblazer comic, circa 1997. It will take a little bit to go over, just to see if she breaks any of the current House Rules.
