Gifts

Elusive

Half-Real
Most people are trapped in reality, but for Pascale, it's optional! She may choose to stop being real whenever this would be convenient for them. Being illusory is a serious hindrance when trying to get things done, but very useful if someone is trying to shoot her in the head or lock her in a closet. Also, mortals on Prosaic Earth are not in the habit of perceiving unreal things and will tend to overlook her even when her appearance or actions would normally draw notice.
Lesser Enchantment of Illusion (4), automatic (+1), self-only (-3), a handful of tricks (-2), uncommon, 1 CP total

The Blind Lie
Pascale's falsehoods are peculiarly infectious. When she tells someone a lie she may imbue her words with miraculous power, and for some time afterwards they lose the ability to perceive anything that would contradict that lie. They aren't forced to believe her, mind you; they just can't see anything that would be inconsistent with the story Pascale told. There's a hole in their perceptions, which may or may not be obvious.
Lesser Destruction of Perception (5), normal (-2), one target (-2), comprehensive (-1), uncommon, 1 CP total

Appearance

A kid of about 12-14 (apparent age) wearing a frock, an oversized white lab coat and a leather plague mask. If not for that last one, she'd be pretty cute.
Reference

History

Pascale's father lives in an evil house. He built it from blood and stone and the bones of nightmares. There he dwells to this day, playing warden and god to those unfortunate creatures who venture inside. They are made horrible, if they weren't already, and within those four evil walls they are helpless before the will of Osuin Lul.

One time, though, the story went differently. Someone entered the House, and he fell in love with her, or as close to love as a man like him gets. There was a child.

This child is Pascale Hart. Later she became the Rider of Pestilence, powerful and terrifying, blithely ignorant of and indifferent to the suffering she brings, but she began as a girl living in an evil house.

… it wasn't a nice place to grow up, as you can probably imagine.
