Samantha Moonchild was born Samantha Stanton. When she was on a trip with her grandfather at a very young age, she was exposed to an artifact of ancient and unknown power.

Soon after, her parents put her into therapy, since she claimed to see and hear things that weren't there, including people long dead. Her grandfather, however, would ask her what she saw, and what they were saying to her.

As a teenager, she sought solace in drinking and drugs, to try and shut out the voices.

At this time, she met Ezekiel Corvus, who recognized what was happening. He introduced her to the concept of apotropaic magic (which wards away spirits - it's the concept behind gargoyles and dressing up in scary costumes on Halloween). With this, she adopted the look and demeanor of the gothic subculture (and, to a degree, it worked). At this time, she took to calling herself Samantha Moonchild.

After graduating from Jefferson University, she took a loan from her grandfather and opened an all-ages nightclub, which she called Club Lilith. She has decorated it in gothic style for the same reason she dresses that way.

Samantha is something of a recluse, rarely seen outside of her club (which is one of the few places that the spirits can't bother her). She occasionally ventures out to assist an individual when the spirits ask for it.

I don't suppose Stanton feels any remorse for what happened to his granddaughter.

It looks like she turned out all right considering the circumstances.

He does, and he got her some... special help (from the Shadowlight League).

I wouldn't worry about her. She's fine. :)

Ooo wow. That's a lot of nice context punch. It also explain's Club Lilith's whole atmosphere thing in one fell swoop. I like her design a lot, the feather, blouse and everything is really well done too. Also, that intense eye lock. A++

You wouldn't believe how many time I get a call from her saying "There's this spirit that needs avenged/consoled/it's dry-cleaning picked up", but what can you do?

[Samantha "Moonchild" Stanton is one of my favorites. She's gone through so many twists of her history in the last 12 years (good guy, bad guy, wizard, half-demon, uninvolved), and I believe I've really captured the overlapping areas with this version]
