Graceful Servant to the Lady of the Lake (Emissary of Power)
Other Aspects:The Lady’s Grace— Molly was raised by her grandmother after her parents drowned. The Lady of the Lake appeared as she was weeping, in mourning of their deaths. As she grew up she began dancing by the Lakeside, sharing her dream with the Lady to one day leave England behind. Seizing this opportunity for possible expansion, the Lady offered her power in exchange for her servitude. Anklet of Avalon— Molly began training in her dance more formally after being chosen by the Lady. When her grandmother also passed away a few years later, Molly inherited just enough money to start a new life in America. Knowing that she would need a way to communicate with her, the Lady blessed her with a trinket deemed the Anklet of Avalon which gives her a telepathic bond and added power to aid in her dance. Bad Taste in Men— There he was at the first show. Tall, dark, bad. And, yeah, he was handsome. She just couldn’t help herself, and Alfonze thought her accent was the bees knees. The boss’s daughter, on the other hand, didn’t think Molly was so cute. Alfonze was her husband. Molly was one of the few to get an ultimatum—leave New York and never be seen again, or die. Molly fled, eventually ending up in Chicago. Too Big for Her Britches— Her talent has made Molly one of the most sought after entertainers in Chicago. Her tap-dancing on water, in particular, opens many doors for her. A smarter girl on the run might have kept her head down; but Molly’s gonna be a big star.
Lookout Old Mac He’s Back!—
Molly’s had a run-in with Mac the Knife; the kind good girls don’t talk about at the dinner table. Now Molly’s trying to take him down. Not because Auntie Mab has him as her Knight and favorite serial killer, but because Molly’s not so comfortable with men who have power over her. She’s an emancipated woman.
Molly grew up near Bassenthwaite Lake in England’s Lake District after the death of her parents. Her grandmother was a kindly woman, but she was very old-fashioned. Molly was independent and headstrong. She loved the peaceful rocks by the shore, but she was too big to get stuck there. She always knew she was destined to be a big star.
After meeting the Lady, she decided that she must indeed be talented. She loved the night life, and was determined to see New York. The Lady encouraged this, as she had her own motives for helping Molly flee as the Great War spilled into the countryside.
Molly was not much of a warrior, but she did pick up a few tricks during her escape. She particularly loved using her water abilities to communicate with animals and mimic them. They say the world can be your oyster, and she imagined being the oyster’s friend as being the quickest way to the top.
She now lives in Chicago at a dance school, earning a bit of petty cash between performances by helping the teachers part-time. Her favorite instructor, who in fact taught her back in New York, is also her business manager and agent. Olive Scranton is a divine woman, infinitely patient, and Molly loves her like an older sister.
Recently Molly has been coming to terms with the supernatural world and her role in it. A run-in with some Black Court vampires snapped her back to her sense of duty toward the Lady. However, her time with Mab and Mac the Knife have shown her that it was naive to fear Vampires and Ghosts and Were’s when the Fae Courts are at large. Mab has taught her that the Lady, powerful as she is, cannot protect her from the threat of all Fae.
