Mortal Scribe

J. Morgyn White

Wisdom of the Scribe

There is in certain ancient things a trace
Of some dim essence — 
More than form or weight;
A tenuous aether, indeterminate, 
Yet linked with all the laws of time and space.
A faint, veiled sign of continuities
That outward eyes can never quite descry;
Of locked dimensions harboring years gone by,
And out of reach except for hidden keys.” – H.P. Lovecraft

= Personal Information =

General Overview: Hecate is a loner, but now sent to the mortal plane intends to help those in need and lift up the spirits of the mortals. She has a deep understanding of animals of all kinds but especially connects with dogs. She takes  pleasure in collecting items for charm making and delights in adding keys to her collection. She loves to be under the night sky. She takes pleasure in lifting up mortals from their troubles, if they approach her with respect and reverence.

As a loner she doesn’t have regular interactions with gods or mortals. She appears standoffish unless she uses a glamor natural ability to make herself approachable. She is weak to true need and weak to a key with a past. She keeps her emotions in checking and is good at controlling her temper. She is generally benevolent but will not tolerate gods harming mortals for their pleasure. She does not appreciate being taken for granted.

Introduction written by J. Morgyn White

Midnight, my favorite time. Meet me at the crossroads and bring a flashlight, it’s dark out there. 

Scared of me, are you? Ha! They might have told you I play hard to get, maybe they even said I was dangerous, the truth is, you’ll only find out if you show up. Besides, what you expect is likely not what you’ll get. Any one of my three faces may terrify you—or enchant you. I might not even look human. I’m a Goddess and Queen of the Darkness, I don’t have to make decisions in advance.

Oh, one more thing. There will likely be dogs coming with us to revel under the stars. My voice is theirs and theirs mine, they are my faithful beasts. Don’t worry, I won’t let them rip your throat out. 

Parents? You decide what to call them: Titanes Perses and Asteria, or  Zeus and Demeter, or Aristaion and Night. What’s important is that my parents doted on their only child, granting me power over heaven, earth, and sea. If you are looking for help, I’ve got what it takes to defend and protect you. Night is not a problem. 

Come on, let’s go bask in the moonlight. I’ve got keys to open doors you can’t even see. Tonight, the moon is dark and it’s the best time to wander. 

Hecate, or Hekate is portrayed by the mortal @jmorgynwhite who holds a key and a torch and knows the way. Fingers powered by the magic of #writingarmor. #WritingCommunity #ThePantheon
