BSM | Love the Voodoo That She Does So Well

There are very few superheroes quite like Priscilla Kitaen. For starters she of mixed heritage…but not in the way you’re thinking. She is of human, Kherubim, and Daemonite descent. I’ll spare you the details of her Kherubim and Daemonite ancestry; just know that these are two warring alien species. Priscilla was completely oblivious to her heritage until her powers kicked in. While working in New Orleans as the main attraction at a strip club, her ability to see Daemonites that possessed humans became active. The Daemonites within her presence became aware that she had blown her cover and attempted to capture her. She was immediately saved by the WildC.A.T.s.

For those of us who do not remember the cartoon from the ‘90s, The WildC.A.T.s was a team of superheroes stranded on Earth, many of Kherubim origins, working to protect the world from the Daemonites who were also stranded. After being rescued from the Daemonites, Priscilla would find herself joining the team and taking the codename Voodoo. As Voodoo, she would explore more of her ancestry and awaken more of her latent abilities. Overtime she would learn that she was a powerful telepath and empath; she’s so powerful she can even shut off a person’s mind completely. In addition to this, she is able to shapeshift.

After a time of fighting alongside her teammates, they were all able to visit the planet of their ancestry, Khera. It would be here that Priscilla would learn that the Kherubim-Daemonite war had ended long ago and the Daemonites had lost. Due to Priscilla’s Daemonite ancestry, she was forced to stay in the ghettos while her teammates were allowed better living conditions. She discovered that all Daemonites were not all evil and the ones she had been fighting this whole time were an extremist militant sect. This created a strain between Voodoo and her teammates. So much so, that upon their return to Earth, Voodoo made the decision to leave the team. Priscilla returned to New Orleans and returned to her former employment as a stripper. Her heroics did not end, however. While working at the strip club she would solve a murder and eventually learn voodoo magic from a mambo-voodoo priestess. She would even return WildC.A.T.s roster at some point in the future.
