Trouble Aspect: Curiosity Killed the Cat

PHASE ONE: Background

Events: Grew up in New Orleans (Creole heritage). Biracial parents (still alive). Spent most of my time performing magic tricks for friends and family. Always asking my sister Genevieve Batiste to show me her trick (i.e., talk to the dead).

Phase Aspect: Devoted to Sister

PHASE TWO: Rising Conflict

Events: Became assistant to Jaques “The Amazing Jack” Sharone. Performed the water escape trick for Genevieve Batiste. Died. Genevieve Batiste brought me back. Began researching the supernatural and occult to prove to myself it is all real.

Phase Aspect: No Such Thing As Failure


Story Title: Vampires: Fact or Fiction?

Cameo: Markus Raith

Events: While being the opening act for Markus Raith and debuting my “vampires don’t have reflections” trick, I saw a vampire in the audience (or didn’t see his reflection). My curiosity to prove him supernatural lead me on a shadow mission ending at Elysium and still no hard proof.

Phase Aspect: One of the Crowd

PHASE FOUR: Guest Star

Story Title: No Shit, There I was…

Guest Starring: Javier Suarez

Events: Ever been in an elevator with a coffin, a closterphobic man, and an easily angered Mexican? Well, the circumstances can deteriorate mighty fast. With some quick thinking, smooth talking, and rewiring, I managed to escape with no bruises and a great “no shit, there I was” story.

Phase Aspect: I can kiss, cry, or kick my way out of anything

PHASE FIVE: Guest Star Redux

Story Title: A Natural High Tweaked by Spirits

Guest Starring: [[:Pitivo Rocka]]

Events: Vampires do exist! I can’t reveal their identity, but trust me. On a natural high from my adventure with Markus Raith, I was ready to PARTY! Markus took me to Pitivo’s house. Wow! does he know how to party. Well, after “razzle-dazzling” everyone, one thing lead to another, and…suffice to say, Pitivo and I have a new kinda connection.
