Like a raven-haired Frazetta pin-up, she sprawled across her obsidian throne in a pose equal parts petulance and pride.
Morgan Bobine has always know she was special, gifted with secret power, far superior to common people. Morgan was born into the secret priesthood of the long forgotten Etruscan demoness, Culsu, and as the only scion of the high priest she was groomed to inherit his position. Morgan was taught to wield the dark magic of Culsu but as she reached adolescence this middling sorcery was no long enough for her and she began to seek paths to greater power.
After spending much of her twenties in solitary pursuits, Morgan finally discovered the secretive organization of witches known as the Coven whom she joined as the junior member for dark magic after seducing the previous position holder and spilling her potent mystical blood on the altar of Culsu.
Even in the Coven Morgan is dissatisfied and craving more and faster avenues to power. She chafes at her low position as maiden but she knows she must continue to prove herself to the Coven to gain greater access to their knowledge so she is currently looking for anyway she can to gain the confidence of the Dark Mother of the Coven and either become her student or betrayer.
Though she gives the appearance of being a pampered princess, Morgan has studied demons and spirits with intensity and she’s mastered spells for subverting free will and probing even the strong-minded. She is one of the most powerful and knowledgable demonologists in the world.
Morgan first appeared in Chapter One – Ancient Magic where she was attempting to complete a potent ritual to bind an incarnation of Culsu into the Setan Kober kris but was thwarted.
Most recently Morgan was revealed to be the driving force behind the events of Chapter Five – Dramatic Distractions in which she hired a talented criminal to get a demon possessed statue from Julian’s private collection.
Her current whereabouts and activities are unknown, but history suggests that she will be looking for demons to bind into the Setan Kober and to her will.
