A WINTER ROSE TATTOO
TOTAL REFRESH COST:
For years Abigail Wharton, now Abigail Youngblood, served as a host to the Denarian Demon, Azael. She performed many heinous acts during that time and she is just now sorting out how to handle those memories. Abi had been an able host but she had developed cancer and even the demon’s considerable regenerative powers could no longer cope with it. The demon abandoned her after she was shot while helping to capture Jack Youngblood who it wanted to make its new host. Jack was able to escape that fate thanks to the intervention of his friends and Azael now resides in the body of Jack’s father.
Abi is undergoing treatment for her cancer and is under the care of AUNT B and LEIF WOTENSEN. She remembers now that she had given birth to a baby girl that the demon has hidden from her. Jack is the father. The two of them are desperate to find their daughter but Abi is very limited because of her cancer. She is a formidable young lady though and if anyone could overcome cancer it would be her.
Unknown to Abi Jack has made a deal with Odianna of WInter to help her battle her cancer. The Winter Rose is a versatile magic that can protect a mind from mystical forces and, apparently, cancer. Odianna gave both Jack and Abigail a Tattoo of the WInter Rose that are linked. As long as the petals of the rose are visible the Winter Rose will prevent Abi’s cancer from advancing. They will fade over time and if Jack does not meet his obligations with Odianna then she can remove the tattoo at will. It is not a cure but it does buy her more time. Abi has no memory of getting the tattoo and has been glamoured by Odianna not to take notice of it. But her will is very strong and it is unlikely she won’t discover it, and Jack’s bargain, sooner or later.
