Voodoo

(Priscilla Kitaen) (Early)

Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Voodoo is a member of the WildC.A.T.s, the emblematic team from the earliest days of Image Comics. It appeared in 1992, the brainchild of Brandon Choi and superstar artist Jim Lee. Back then the comic book market was riding a large bubble, so a gazillion issues were sold and there was a lot of merch and spin-off media.

Voodoo was necessarily the most arresting of characters. As a result, she later received more focused character development and more dynamic abilities. This is covered in our second Voodoo (WildCATs) character profile.

Powers and Abilities

Voodoo is a human-Daemonite-Kherubim cross-breed. However, her Daemonite heritage will be revealed much later.

She is gifted with “the Sight”, the power to expose and exorcise Daemonites possessing a human host. Furthermore, she can negate the negative emotions in an opponent’s mind, allowing her to separate a human body from its Daemonite possessor.

She can also partially transform in a Daemonite allowing her to grow the alien natural weapons (claws, fangs).


History

One night, Priscilla ran away from home in Missoula, Montana. When seen again, Grifter was extracting her from the clutches of the Daemonite Cabal. The Cabal, the Grifter-Zealot pair and the emerging Emp’s WildC.A.T. wanted to get her for her gift of “the Sight”. The only difference was the Cabal wanted to eliminate such a threat to their fellow Daemonites.

Emp offered her a position with the Wildcats, along with Grifter and Zealot. The idea was both to keep her under their protection, and to take advantage of her powers. Panicking at the idea of monstrous aliens stalking her, Ms. Kitaen agreed.

After some times along the team, and after being constantly rescued by Spartan from various dangers, the two of them started to get involved in romance, in spite of Spartan’s robotic body.

Then, Zealot, tired of hauling this dead weight in fights, took it upon herself to train Voodoo in the Coda ways.

Description

She’s a beautiful woman, with long black hair. She wears her exotic dancer outfit, which reveals much of her body.

Her arms and legs displays constantly shifting green tattoos. Those may be temporary tattoos she keeps changing as part of her costume, artistic license or not tattoos at all but manifestation of her genetic heritage.


Personality

At the start of her “heroic” career, Voodoo is quite out of place among the WildC.A.T.. She feels completely out of her league, and is of no use in a fight against non Daemonites foes. Except when pushed to grow Daemonite defense apparatus, which scares her badly.

She later developed a big crush on Spartan.

“Ge-get away from me !!”


DC Universe History

Pris was a random victim of an attack by nomad, supernatural predators called Daemonites. She would have died if she hadn’t been found by the Swamp Thing. Its treatment allowed her to survive. It also gifted her with a strange second sight which allowed her to spot Daemonites in human disguise. She, the Swamp Thing and John Constantine eventually destroyed the Daemonite pack.

She had a brief affair with Constantine and traveled with him a bit. But he tired of her and dumped her. Wandering around, she became the mistress of the criminal King Snake, and channeled her bitterness in combat training and the mastery of her gift of her part-Daemonite blood.

She finally deserted Snake for a chance to stab Constantine, but the Swamp Thing saved him and allowed Pris to overcome her bitterness. She hasn’t been seen since.
