Bio:

Appearance:

A short but wiry warrior, Tonnere shaves her head bald – it’s that much less easy for an opponent to grapple her by the hair. She has a strong face and a booming voice that can bring a room to silence in moments. Her eyes are large in her face and pure white, and electricity seems to pulse beneath her mahogany skin along with her blood. Her Mantle takes the form of a strong, hot wind that causes her clothing to ripple and billow, and phantom white fire to occasionally race across her skin.

Concept:

Those of the Sacred Band are expected to excel at one thing above all others. Naturally, Missy Tonnere (born 1977) excels at speed, able to move like lightning and with a temper to match. In her native Haiti, Missy’s family practiced Catholicism and Vodou side-by-side, and she was very familiar with the proverb Ti moun fwonte grandi devan baron! (An impudent child grows up under Baron’s eyes!)

Loud and quick to anger even then, she was horrified when the Baron actually came for her, stealing Missy away to his Barony – a seemingly unending junkyard full of metal scraps populated by bestial Hobgoblins. Missy spent her childhood and subsequent adulthood chasing Hobgoblins and other, stranger creatures of Faerie, all beneath a sky that never stopped growling and spitting living lightning. It was only by luck that she escaped – though unlike Dame Sarlandra, with whom she shares a former Keeper, her exit came from trapping one of the living bolts of lightning in a glass jar and refusing it exit until it entered into a pact with her to guide her away from the Barony and through the Hedge to civilization.

Missy Tonnere’s claim to fame is slaying one of the Gentry. She’ll gladly recount the story, that the thing was twelve feet tall, with ten arms and fangs that dripped acid, that it lashed out with speed to nearly match her own as it dragged an innocent away towards the Hedge. She’ll recount every move made in the battle – her cries of rage, the sound her sword made as it pierced the fiend’s eye. She’ll even show you her necklace made of three of the Fae’s fingers strung on a silver chain.

But she probably won’t tell you that the creature was close to her own height, and just about as “young” as those nightmares can be.
