"'The Swamp Witch.' My shadow reaches far now. My legend has spread across the land. My name is spoken with fear and reverence even over the sea.
Most people are surprised when they first meet me. 'I thought you'd be taller,' they say. But it isn't long before they see how 'tall' I can be! A soul's strength isn't measured in inches; it's felt in the power that pushes out, surrounds, and overcomes that which seeks to resist it.
I am fueled by my will.
I am fueled by my city's love.
I am fueled by my anger.
I am fueled by my people's sorrow.
I am fueled by fear of invaders.
I am fueled by my faith.

I find peace in the company of my animals.
I find peace alone in the shadows.
I find peace walking with the dead.
I find peace in the arms of a 'monster.'
I find peace serving those I'm loyal to.
I find peace chanting in sacred circles.

And in the womb of my swamp I rest, and awaken restored."

Tabitha's Inner Circle

Alberto Fortiér
Tabitha's oldest friend. He's been the Prince of New Orleans-- either publicly or secretly-- since 1804, and Tabitha has been his sheriff for all that time. A father & grandfather, he holds his family dear.
Gabriella Fortiér
One of Tabitha's closest friends. Tabitha loves her as if she were her own daughter, and indeed she became Tabitha's Childe after her own daughter Elizabeth was grown.
Achan
Wandering the centuries as a Tammuz, Achan at last discovered the secret to making another like himself and in the process he, himself, was reborn as a new human with a soul...and no memory of anything before his rebirth. With Tabitha's help he has built a life for himself, and has finally been able to love her as he never could before.
Raphael
Tabitha's best Hound, their priorities are to clean up their neighborhoods and keep the city safe. Despite her affection for him, Tabitha has never been tempted to give in to his advances!
Bella
Tabitha calls her "The White Lady," and as Tabitha's Ghoul-- and eventually Childe-- Tabitha trained this former mage to perform the duties of caretaker for the dead & protector of graveyards.
Trista
Trista-- unknowingly blood-bound to Tabitha-- is the eager recipient of Tabitha's lessons in healing and herb-lore.


"Visions"
by Faith And The Muse

I walk with phantoms and leaves are burning at my feet
I walk with phantoms
Sometimes they rage
Sometimes they fade
Some must watch while some are singing
Singing the hum of the walking dead

I walk with phantoms and leaves are ice at my feet
I walk with phantoms
Here is the truth
Seven wonders
Seven wonders and the will to live

Singing the hum of the walking dead
Thinking of every word that you said
Singing as garden walls ripple with the blur of bees
Sweetly singing as sunlight streams through the aching trees
Voices trampling the exhausted wilderness
Singing the hum of the walking dead

Burning like the gaze upon a faithless friend
Burning down the lonely trees always in the end
Voices trampling the exhausted wilderness
Dragging the heels of the walking dead
Dragging out every word that you said
