I decided Mr-RedX could use a John Constantine or Zatanna of sorts in his gallery of allies.
Meet the Modern Mystic, Patience "Charm" Singer!
QuickBio: The Salem Witch Trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts. More than two-hundred people were accused, nineteen of whom were found guilty and executed by hanging. In one case, a man was pressed to death by the stacking of boulders to his chest until he confessed of witchcraftery. But this moment of mass-hysteria was not of the people's own doing, but of the Salem Sisters, witch siblings who enjoyed the tormenting of mortals. They started through filling voices in the mind of Tituba, a Barbatos slave who was Salem's caregiver. She tended to the cleaning of most homes, and took care of most of the town's children. To pass the time, she told the children stories of Barbatos myths and legends, encompassing them with wonder. The Salem Sisters thought it would be best for Tituba to start this movement, as she was the most likely to blame. They casted a spell on the young servant, planting her head with voices that told her to bring the children she tended to in the woods to commence a love ritual. Tituba succumbed to the voices, and informed all of the young women to meet her late at night to unite them with their future husbands. The ritual had commenced, but something odd occurred. The Salem Sisters possessed the girls Tituba had brought with her, and made them do the most sinful of things. Not only that, but they summoned some of the townsfolk to witness what they were doing. After the incident, Salem was in an uproar, just as the sisters sadistically planned. Tituba was accused of witchcraft, and she reluctantly confessed to it in fear of being executed, thinking they would keep her alive for interrogation. She had no idea of what the devil was, or even of witchcraft, but she refused to be whipped again by Reverend Parris. The trials commenced, and the Salem sisters went to their heart's content. They blackened the hearts of the children of Massachusetts, giving them ideas for lies in exchange for praise and popularity. The girls agreed to this, as they were mostly neglected by their fellow townspeople. For a whole year, the witch trials lasted. And dozens of hundreds of innocent people were accused of the practice of witchcraft, and most of them were hanged for it. Tituba was imprisoned for her crimes, left to rot in a cold cell. The trials were starting to cease, the sisters' power waining on the people's psyche. Because of this, Gwendolyn, the sadistically-mischievious sister, was trying to have a personal wrap-up party, going out and drinking as much ale as she could. While witches are usually immune to intoxication, Gwendolyn made it so that she could. On that same night, Tituba managed to find a small hole in her cell in which she could escape in. She succeeded, and walked over to the fields Gwendolyn was waddling by. Tituba begged the witch sister to help her, recognizing her as one of the voices that told her of how to entertain herself without Parris expecting, and that she was promised of going back to Barbatos. Being as drunk as she was, Gwendolyn blatantly agreed. With her magic, she casted a spell on Tituba that had magic course throughout all of her body and very being. After that, Gwendolyn passed out from exhaustion. With her newfound power, Tituba flew herself back to her home, Barbatos. She married to a good man soon after, and they conceived a child. But what Tituba didn't know was that the magic given to her was hereditary. Her child, Seema, flew out of Barbatos at a moderate age and to the United Kingdom, where she settled down and married a man of her own. For ten generations the enchanted bloodline continued, until it reached Patience Singer, the latest in the family. Her mother, Amelia, told her of their abilities ever since she could walk. Patience was fascinated by the lore and history with her abilites, along with it's properties. For years she studied and practiced her powers. While she also lead a normal life, clubbing and partying away from her job as a theatre actress. On her eighteenth birthday, she received a weird text saying she needed to come by the local museum. When she arrived, she was given a shock of a lifetime. The three Salem sisters were holding her parents, who were now rats, over a boiling cauldron. As they learned of a witch with equal power to theirs, they couldn't let such a person to exist. They demanded Patience relinquish her power or her parents would be destroyed. Still being able to verbally speak, Patience's parents told her that if they gained that much power, they would most likely cause a much worst disaster than the witch trials. But Patience felt she had no choice but to give up her power to the sisters. The sisters' powers were restored back to their full potential, and they threw Patience's parents into the cauldron nonetheless. They proclaimed they would make the entire world fight against itself in the most horrific war in history. That is, if Patience hadn't tricked them. Just in case they weren't good on their word, Patience enchanted her own magic source to rapidly accelerate. The sisters were withering to dust, and had no choice but to restore Patience's power to her. As they started to regain their health, they fleed as soon as they could. Soon after, CROSS agents arrived to pick up any mystical remnants and to escort Patience from the area. She was offered a position as a field agent, but was given some time to think about it, as she was totally grief stricken from her parents death. Weeks passed, and Patience decided against joining CROSS. Though, she did say if they ever needed her assistance, they knew who to call. Several months later, Patience was attacked by Phantasmas, as she beared a resemblance to his lost love. Luckily, Kayn was out on his nightly patrol around the park she was in, and saved her from the abbaration. Patience thanked him, and she was given a special remote that could call upon Kayn if she needed him again. Weeks later, Kayn took the call. After facing off with Phantasmas once again, he learned of Patience's extensive use and knowledge of mysticism. Patience has since been a very good friend of Kayn's, always coming to his side when he's dealing with serious sorcery. While she's known as Patience, her friends have given her the nickname... Charm!
