PostSubject: Lilith   Wed Aug 15, 2007 9:15 pm

Name: Lilith, or "Death's Bride"

Age: Unknown

Race: She's a specter, ghost, spirit, apparition, etc.

Powers: She is a neutral ghost that haunts houses and often appears at the top of stairwells and in mirrors.

Lives at: Wherever she is haunting at the moment.

The Legend: The story of "Death's Bride" is one of tragic love. Lilith was engaged to be married to an older, rich man, while her affections were directed at young blacksmith. While social status kept them apart, they often visited in secret. One night, however, Lilith's mother could not sleep, and stepped out on the balcony, where she overheard Lilith and the boy in the garden. Enraged, Lilith's mother threatens Lilith the next day, swearing that if the two do not stop seeing each other, she'll have the boy driven away--or worse. Fearing for his life, Lilith confronts her love one, last time, telling him that they must avoid each other at all costs. Instead, he tells her that if they could only elope, their troubles would be over, and they could spend the rest of their lives together. Lilith believed his words, and waited two nights until she met him in the garden to flee. However, Lilith's mother had sent servants of her daugther's rich fiance to watch her, and they reported their findings to Lilith's mother and husband-to-be. He gathered his male servants to track the wife-stealer down, and within hours, they overtook the renegade couple. Intent on the boy's demise, Lilith's fiance came at him with a knife, but Lilith leapt in front of him at the last moment. The knife pierced her heart, and she died in her true love's arms.

Lilith now spends her life (er, death) garbed in a wedding gown, and often sings love songs, wedding marches, and lullabies, because of her unfulfilled wish to become a wife and mother.

Personality: Lilith is lonely. She longs for the people of her past, but to no avail. She craves attention, and plays tricks on people, scares them, or wakes them up at night in order to get it. She particularly likes large, creaky old houses. Lilith often sings as she haunts, rearranges items at dressing tables, or calls people from her past by name. She hums the Wedding March at times, and has been sighted making wedding preparations in her victims' rooms. While not malevolent, she's not magnanimous. She is, however, rather tender and quiet, even if she enjoys haunting.

Iddaknow. She just likes to help people be happy, even though she's not, really.

Heh.

And she likes to be vague. XD

[haha yes. This poem describes some things about her, and even though the girl in the poem's name is 'Irene', I think it fits. Stuff in bold stood out to be especially]

THE SLEEPER - by Edgar Allan Poe - 1831

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At midnight, in the month of June,
I stand beneath the mystic moon.
An opiate vapor, dewy, dim,
Exhales from out her golden rim,

And, softly dripping, drop by drop,
Upon the quiet mountain top,
Steals drowsily and musically
Into the universal valley.
The rosemary nods upon the grave;
The lily lolls upon the wave;
Wrapping the fog about its breast,
The ruin molders into rest;
Looking like Lethe, see! the lake
A conscious slumber seems to take,
And would not, for the world, awake.
All Beauty sleeps!–and lo! where lies
Irene, with her Destinies!

O, lady bright! can it be right-
This window open to the night?
The wanton airs, from the tree-top,
Laughingly through the lattice drop-
The bodiless airs, a wizard rout,
Flit through thy chamber in and out,
And wave the curtain canopy
So fitfully–so fearfully-
Above the closed and fringed lid
'Neath which thy slumb'ring soul lies hid,
That, o'er the floor and down the wall,
Like ghosts the shadows rise and fall!
Oh, lady dear, hast thou no fear?
Why and what art thou dreaming here?
Sure thou art come O'er far-off seas,
A wonder to these garden trees!
Strange is thy pallor! strange thy dress,
Strange, above all, thy length of tress,
And this all solemn silentness!
The lady sleeps! Oh, may her sleep,
Which is enduring, so be deep!
Heaven have her in its sacred keep!
This chamber changed for one more holy,
This bed for one more melancholy,
I pray to God that she may lie
For ever with unopened eye,
While the pale sheeted ghosts go by!

My love, she sleeps! Oh, may her sleep
As it is lasting, so be deep!
Soft may the worms about her creep!
Far in the forest, dim and old,
For her may some tall vault unfold-
Some vault that oft has flung its black
And winged panels fluttering back,
Triumphant, o'er the crested palls,
Of her grand family funerals-
Some sepulchre, remote, alone,
Against whose portal she hath thrown,

In childhood, many an idle stone-
Some tomb from out whose sounding door
She ne'er shall force an echo more,
Thrilling to think, poor child of sin!
It was the dead who groaned within.
THE END
