Musichetta: There is no sure history about where Gorgons come from. Whether they are a result of a curse from an over ambitious witch gone wrong or if it was from the gods themselves. Some believe that Gorgons have always been around, slipping through the cracks of history. Greece just happened to be the place they were ‘discovered’.

Musichetta has never given it much thought. She has always been a Gorgon and it never seemed important to dwell on philosophical questions like that. She grew up like all Gorgons do, on the run.

Gorgons are born, from humans or from a Gorgon that slept with a human. Through an ancient network of oracles, the small international Gorgon community is normally able to get to the human parent and steal the baby as soon as it is born. For those Gorgon children that are not rescued, well, it is not a happy or long life for the child.

Musichetta’s mothers are all she has known and while their small family never had much they had each other. Her mothers taught her how to charm her snakes into moving tattoos so they did not accidently hurt anyone. They taught her how to paralyze a person in her gaze. And most importantly they taught her to hide.

As a young adult though, Musichetta found Paris. Despite the warnings of her mothers she choose to stay in the city, drawn in by its charm and the magical community. Originally she had planned a quiet stay in the city but she wasn’t able to slip unnoticed for long. Her reputation in the black market grew as she took odd jobs and successfully ran smuggling operations in and out of the city.

Friends are rare for Gorgons, but Musichetta manages to find company in a certain over curious human who has no fear of her powers just endless questions and his cheerful roommate.
