Many and varied. Nemesis pretty much takes on any job that gives her access to those she hunts. Among them she is a Court Clerk at the County Courthouse and has a position at Club Arcane as a stripper.

General Overview: Nemesis is all about her work. Her time is spent delivering justice, revenge and vengeance in an effort to balance the scales. It is what has sustained her over the eons. She has a very jaded view of life and those around her. Nemesis never actually left the mortal plane and her power is such that just by being near most immortals and mortals, it is activated and she knows the worst of people before she ever knows them.
She protects herself behind a quick wit and a tough facade. She has been alone for a very long time and she is lonely, but has accepted it as her way of life. She has forgotten how to maintain, much less form, relationships with any true meaning, and yet she longs for the connections. Nem is very protective and has a strong sense of morality and honor.
Nicknames: Nemesis, Nem, Nemo
Likes: Enjoys reading and training. The physical disciplines such as Tai-Chi and the katas of most martial arts. She loves the beach and you will often find her on one coast or another. Hiking, horseback riding and traveling are some of her favorite past times. Dark chocolate and good coffee, are two of her guilty pleasures. But then she doesn’t tend to feel guilt.
Dislikes: She has no tolerance for those that prey on the innocent and weak. Drama will make her turn and walk away. Manipulation and games she will see coming and will simply shut you down. She is not fond of being given orders and is unlikely to follow them unless it suits her to do so.
Isolated. She has kept to herself for eons, both emotionally and physically. In doing so she has strained the bonds of those that would come to her aid. She has left herself wide open for no one to notice if she disappeared or was in need.
Arrogance. Having existed so long, she has come to consider herself somewhat invulnerable. Of course, no being is truly invulnerable. When faced with her vulnerabilities, the fact of them will often make her reel.
Trust Issues. One of the side effects of her abilities is that she knows the worst of people, both mortal and immortal. It makes it difficult to trust or to form relationships with those around her.
Control Issues. Probably due to her trust issues, she tends to want to control her environment. She is also very very old, so there is not much in the world that surprises her. She is not good about dealing with the unexpected and situations in which she does not have some experience.
Skills / Abilities
Immortality.Technically immortal. Immune to the effects of aging, cannot die by any conventional means, and is immune to all known mortal diseases and infections. As a deity, they are able to teleport, or "pop" anywhere in the mortal plane with a few exceptions, the God Floors of the GC HQ are mystically protected, so no teleporting to or in between them, anything on the non-mortal plane, i.e., the Underworld, Atlantis, and the Void, are non-accessible without a guide.
Babble-speak: Nemesis can communicate in all languages and dialects.
Power of Knowing: Passive Field. Just being in the vicinity of a being, she will know their darkest deeds, mortal and immortal alike. Every act they have committed against another, with intent to harm, she will know. This power is automatic and Nemesis is unable to shut it off, her only method of gaining reprieve from it being self-isolation. As long as the person is within sight of Nemesis, their darkest deeds are an open book before her.
Power of Knowing: Active Field. Nemesis has the ability to hone in on a single thread picked up in her Passive ability of this power. The thread of misdeeds glows in proportion to the heinousness of the crimes committed. A touch from her or the shade of her power, and vengeance will find this being — and Nemesis is always hunting. Not even she is sure how it works exactly. As a primordial, this ability is built into her. It is not a power outside of herself. It is her.
Umbrakinesis. Nemesis can manipulate shadows and darkness. Pulling them around herself, she can form pockets of shadow and even shape them to do her bidding. To give shadows life in this manner requires her infusing the shadow with a piece of her own power. Done too often or to too great a degree puts Nemesis at risk from outside attack. Nemesis can also shed her human shape and take on the form of mist, smoke and shadow. Her power often manifests in the form of a small shadow dragon which she can send to roam untethered from her.
Telepathy. Nemesis can speak mind to mind with most beings. She needs to be within range, about a mile or two. The telepathy plays a part in her ability of Power of Knowing, probably the reason it is as strong in her as it is. It is a necessity.
Normal Daily Wear: Nemesis pretty much invented the Goth Steampunk movement. Left to her own devices she will be in black leather pants, boots and corsets. Black is her preferred color overall. She dresses to the occasion however and while not her preferred choice she is comfortable in a suit or a gown. She has mastered fitting into her environment.
Alternative Dress Wear: If you catch her in her lair, you will often find her in her black cotton pajama bottoms with skulls on them and a soft cami tank with bare feet.
Nemesis was before the Gods, she was before the Titans. One of the Primordials of the Pantheon, born from Nyx. She is one of the true ancient forces of the universe. Since the beginning, there has been a need for balance and a necessity to keep hubris and greed in check. This has been her task.
Throughout the millennia she has existed, watching as both immortal and mortal powers grew and evolved. She has hunted and dealt with the worst of infractions, delivering her own brand of justice.
Introduction written by Aisling MacKay
I have encountered most of you at least a time or two. Oh…the confusion I see in your eyes! How delicious! You have no idea how you know me or why on Earth I would know of you and that is exactly how I prefer it. I am what you fear in the shadows. You think it is the monsters that exist there that are the biggest threat, but I am here to educate you. It is yourself that you fear the most in the darkness and I was born into that darkness. It is I that will force you to face the truth of who you are.
You have heard rumors of me, you have felt my breath on your neck at the precise moments your world has fallen apart. Just when you thought you had it all, I bring it crumbling down. I do so with glee. I revel in claiming your ill-gotten gains as a price for your hubris. Power, wealth, health or love, it makes no difference to me. In the end, to come to balance, I will take it all.
Let me tell you my pets, you know that bitch Karma? Well, I make her look like a babe in arms when it comes to balancing the scales. I have read on your…what do you call it…Your Goggle! Yes, I have read on Goggle about BBW, well consider me BBK, Big Beautiful Karma. I taught that little girl all she knows. You are looking at the original not the watered-down version. Not even the Gods, most especially not the Gods, are immune to the justice I bring. All of them have felt my touch. They wish me blind, but I see…oh how I see until I too wish I was blind. Lifetimes of therapy could not help me process the depravities some of these supposed perfect beings get up to.
It changes nothing that you know of me through this silly blogging project that the old Goat is making us participate in, for I never really disappeared from the mortal world. It makes no difference that you have seen my face. I never come at you from the front. I suspect good ole swan boy has spent too much time being the troll on the interstates, watching you mortals get your strange on and decided he needed an excuse to be spending so much time inline. So let’s see what his new crazy idea can do for me. I think this might actually be fun. How hard can a mortal job be? After all…I am a Goddess!
