She began to take human form to walk among them, eventually playing her tricks and causing trouble. After several decades, the villagers near her home decided to stop her, and called in for help.
Forced from her home in the Amazon River by a Brazilian shaman, Mede traveled from continent to continent, taking out her rage and sorrow on the locals, only leaving when her identity or resting place became compromised.

Name: Brian Lachlan Shuck [prefers Shuck]
Race: Black Dog
A shaggy black dog with fiery eyes and bared, snarling teeth, it commands ferocity and terror. Stocky,*muscular and large; the size of a small horse.
Tall, standing at approximately 6'2'', and stocky and strong; he has pronounced canines and the dark odour of ash surrounding him. Always seen with a cigarette between his lips, black leather jacket, dark jeans, black combat boots, and dark button-up shirts. Appears to be in his mid-to-late twenties.
History: Brian Lachlan Shuck, or better known as Black Shuck of East Anglia, was a well-known Gaelic Black Dog found roaming the English countryside and cemetaries and crossroads.
For a majority of his life, Shuck was found under the manipulation of a village Druid who practiced dark magic and had chained the Dog to his command. As such, Shuck was a violent, ferocious beast feared all over Britain for the murders of people who looked into his eyes on the paths of crossroads and lonely paths.
It was only after the murder of a church-goer and his son in Blythburgh that he broke free of the Druid's hold after the Druid was found by villagers and lynched.
Embittered by the fiendish atrocities he'd committed, Shuck eventually became a benevolent spirit who guided wayward travellers and watched for their safety in order to balance out the vile of his actions.
After centuries of wandering and protecting, Shuck slowly faded from Gaelic Lore and became reclusive, yet again seen as a Harbinger of Death.
During his eerie travels throughout the isles of Ireland, Shuck was discovered by Terrence Blackthorn during an attempt by locals to harm him with silver and salt. Blackthorn caused them to flee and Shuck found himself thankful.
Oweing the man a debt and tired of the lonely eternity he would endure, Shuck joined Blackthorn's "Dark Circus" and took on the mantle of Brian Lachlan Shuck, cynical Strong-Man.
Personality: Cynical; exceedingly so. He also pertains to a certain level of dry wit in any given situation and prefers to remain sarcastic, unless in the midst of a serious emotional moment, which reverts him to a semi-sympathetic character. His voice is also constantly monotone and contains a grumble, to better suit his demeanour.
Circus Act/Job: Strong-Man - Despite never dressing in the stereotypical attire of a Strong-Man, Shuck is always the Performer who performs the brute acts of force and strength. He is known to throw acrobats through the air, bend steel, and hold up astonishing weights one-handed.
Security Enforcer: When not performing on-stage, Shuck acts as a personal bodyguard to the affairs concerning both Blackthorn and the Circus. He also acts as enforcer and muscle when the situation calls for it.
Abilities: Supernatural Strength - As a demonic spirit, Shuck is endowed with incredible strength, enabling him to lift many times the weight of an average man and is built to withstand much punishment. This, however, is dwarfed by his strength in his natural form, which is brutish and savage. He is also extraordinarily swift while in his 'true' form, capable of outmaneuvering almost any obstacle with ease.
Senses - As to do with his canid form, Shuck has an incredible sense of hearing and smell. He can track the scent of any target with ease for miles, even through chemical camouflage or natural erosion. His hearing also reaches vast distances with simple clarity and reaches frequencies heard by animals of the canine family. His auditory and olfactory abilities are the only supernatural skills at the same level as his 'true' form.
Hellfire - At times of great anger or hostility, Shuck has been known to leave a burning imprint on any surface he touches. This is caused by the heat of hellfire; the tainted energy in which he embodies.*The print is always in the form of a large paw, no matter what form he takes. While in his Dog form, he is capable of inflicting searing, agonising wounds that don't heal; it is said that he is able to breathe the hellfire, although he disregards this as "drunken Irish nonsense."
Nightwalking - Only accesible in his 'true' skin, Shuck is capable of "melting" into shadows and disguising his appearance. This makes him invisible in dark areas, as well as intangible, his form akin to billowing smoke (until he attacks). When stalking hostile individuals, Shuck causes them to feel shuddering cold and unease.
Additional Information: Due to his demonic origins, Shuck disdains all salt, no matter what form, due to its irritating effects (especially if blessed). Silver and holy objects also unnerve him.
When under the command of the Dark Druid, Shuck was capable of cursing those whom he met with imminent death. This ability have since been lost.
Not only does he naturally and immediately unnerve people in his proximity, but Shuck has the uncanny and eerie talent to discern the year or date of a person's death, although the cause of death and specifics are never explained.
Name: Uther Levainthan
He's about the size of an elephant, much smaller than the average dragon.
Human Appearance: stands at about 6"4 he's skinny but stronger than he seems. He usually keeps his eyes covered due to their dragon/cat pupils, something glamour just didn't have the ability to disguise.
History: Uther was born in an active volcano somewhere off the coast of hawaii, as most of the nearly extinct dragons had been before. He grew up with only his father, for his mother was killed from an unknown cause. He was taught to be emotionless and to drive fear into his enemy's heart, but this was not his nature. When he was unable to kill another of his kind over a mate (a custom of the dragons, funny because they're almost all dead...) he fled from his home to escape death by his opponent.
Personality: He's a joker. Uther is still a child at heart, and thus hardly takes anything very seriously. He always aims to put smiles on anyone's face, even if they want to punch him for doing it. He usually has a good sense of humor, but his positive nature often gets on individual's nerves.
Circus Act/Job: Fire Breather
Abilities: Like all dragons, Uther can breathe fire effortlessly on command. He can also fly (duh) when in his dragon form
Additional Information: His hair often catches on fire.
Name: Jenna Mori, but she changed her name to Timpani Magistera, as to suit her sister.
Race: She is a Siren/Human Mix.
Timpani appears to be around the age of 12, when she is out of the water. When she is in the water, as a mermaid, she looks to be in her late teens (18-20.) Some have said that in her true form, she looks older that her sister.
History: Timpani was born on the 7th of April to a human and mer-woman, due to a curse. When she was being conceived, she was constantly shifting between a human fetus and a siren's fetus. Her mother, a siren named Penelope, later died as she gave birth to the girl. As a hybrid of Siren and human, Timpani could live under the water for a short time before she had to breathe, which led to her being a hassle in the kingdom of the sea. She later left.
Timpani roamed the streets of the world, as she was no longer welcome in the oceans. She was homeless, sleeping on the roofs, and eating from those who were generous enough to feed her scraps. Timpani was found by her older sister, Calliope, who graciously took her in and gave her a home: the Dark Circus. Initially, Timpani acted as a sideshow, a sword swallower. But as her attraction for sharp objects grew, Timpani eventually became the Circus' very own impalement artist.
Circus Act/Job: Timpani is an impalement artist. She also does a sword-swallowing side-show.
Abilities: Timpani can stay underwater for extremely long durations of time. She can also (as aforementioned) swallow swords. She has deadly accuracy. Timpani is also an excellent swimmer, considering the fact that she is basically a mermaid. Timpani has a wonderful and alluring voice that can be as sweet as honey, or bitter as coffee.
Additional Information: Timpani lives in a large aquarium-esque tank. She can only breathe underwater for 8 hours, and she can only live out of her tank for 10 hours. To shift back into her natural form, she has to be fully doused in water for about 5 minutes, and she must be totally dry before she can use her legs.
