Death is an abstract entity, its thread passing through Gods and Space and Time. And at one point in its infinite (and beyond) existence, Death decided to create life. A sort of experiment.

Death ground the bones of a thousand forgotten corpses to dust. In the cauldron of oblivion, he brewed the dust under enchanted moonlight, adding to his mix black orchids and mushrooms from the wild fae realms that were blacker still. The dying breaths of a thousand souls fell into the cauldron and from it was born the daughter of death.


She was human, really, as Death had intended. It was just that she was the daughter of death.


Death placed her on earth by an orphanage, another abandoned baby that grew through the care home system relatively unscathed, although many professed she was somewhat odd, especially at the dead of night. In fact, some souls were outright creeped by her!


By the time she was twenty, the Daughter of Death was a lover of life, a hit on the party scene, dancing and DJing her way to fame. She truly came alive at night.


And then she died.


She didn’t know quite how, but one frosty midnight, where the moon shone full and bright, she simply died. Not that that stopped her. Quite the reverse! She now understood that she was able to die whenever she pleased, becoming a creature of bone dust, a cloud of undeath.


Awesome! Now its time to be a superhero!


Personality & Motivation:

Nightlife is a confident, sassy, fun loving woman who loves a party. She is generally friendly and supportive, and has her finger on the pulse of night life (obs!). She has seen a fair bit of misery in the care home system, and seen plenty of problems on the streets (and she is very anti-drugs because of it). She has a love of superheroes, idolising many of them, and when she found out she had her own powers, she felt it only naturalise to become her heroes!


Powers & Tactics:

Nightlife can create bones out of her body on a whim, throwing them to injure, or ensnare her targets. They appear at rapid speeds and can explode when fired, creating even more havoc! She can also move any bones, and hence is able to move many living creatures (or even some corpses), even breaking them with her power.


She is highly resilient to injury and immune to any biological attack or need (such as sleep, food, or oxygen!).


Normally, she is what might be called “Super-Alive”! her skin glows, her senses are super acute, she heals remarkably quickly (particularly from serious injury) and as a result, she is very attractive.

She can become “undead”. In this form she is basically bone dust, although she can assume any shape, fly, and solidify her form.


However, Nightlife can only change from “dead” and “alive” forms at night. She will usually operate at night because of this. She prefers to use her “dead” status when a hero, as it preserves her identity, but she would not be averse to using her “alive” form for related espionage or social challenges, and even as a full blown hero (if she has a mask!)


It is possible that she can assume a “half-dead” form, either voluntarily or via something like nullify during the daytime (meaning she could not assume her dead or alive form). She becomes a rather pasty looking, normal woman in this case, deprived of the powers of death or life (although still able to command bones!)



Power Descriptions:
Nightlife’s only visible powers are the spontaneous creation and propulsion of bones from her body. She is able to move bones remotely, and can do this essentially invisibly.


Daughter of Death: As Nightlife is linked to an abstract entity, she may be a person of interest to various other divine persons or abstract entities, or even worldly sorcerers. This may be a benign interest, but others may view her with suspicion or malice.


Dreadful Dust

Changing into her “dead” state causes a quite visible and lingering cloud of bone dust that can has a characteristic odour. This is far from subtle and may cause problems particularly if Nightlife is trying to be subtle or deceptive


Don’t Stop The Party

Nightlife is a party girl, prone to burning the candle at both ends, drink (although she doesn’t normally get drunk) and dance and PARTY. She is usually listening to music and can be distracted.
