Bloody Mary

(Miami urban legend)


This profile is based on urban myths that were chronicled by the Miami New Times. These 1997 articles are still online.

The idea is that you should read the MNT articles first, since that’s the core of the material. This here article simply adds tabletop RPG stats.

The illustration Michael Bukowski. It was quoted from his site, which now seems dead.


  • Real Name: Unrevealed.
  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: A son.
  • Group Affiliation: The Horde, Many different street gangs.
  • Base Of Operations: Conquered heaven-like extradimensional realm.
  • Height: 5’3 Weight: 114 pounds.
  • Eyes: Red Hair: Black



As the story goes, she was once a trusted inhabitant of Heaven. But she betrayed that trust, opening the gates for the enemy and personally leading the invasion. The former occupants of that realm were driven into exile.

Now she is second only to Satan. He watches her uneasily but her attention seems to be focussed on Earth, where her influence grows as she gathers more and more youth gang members.


Twisted and compulsive, she weeps bloody tears as she watches her pawns kill and be killed. She hates and mourns her own lost son.


“Your solicitude for his welfare comes too little, and too late.”
