Background/History: Natasha Weischlange has been enamored with magic for as long as she can remember. As a child she read all she could on it, finding accounts both of stage magicians, as well as real sorcerers - such as Gigelf Liqueur - fascinating. Quickly she realized that following in her parent's footsteps and studying law - or marketing - was not for her; Natasha wanted to be a sorceress.
As her parents were fairly wealthy, they decided to indulge their daughter's wishes and dutifully allowed her to attend the University of Berkeley, which was known for it's fairly comprehensive program in magical studies. Natasha, immersed in her element, excelled in her classes, graduating as a fully licensed magician.
Once she had left school, Natasha realized she had a problem; what does a magician do for a living? She didn't want to work for a company, the idea of being a secretary by day and a witch by night was not what she had in mind as a lifestyle. So cashing in various securities and a savings bond, Natasha bought a small building in downtown Ellicott City and set up shop, opening "Naga's Occult Bookstore and Curios." Business is sporadic to say the least, and she supplements her store income by occasionally acting as a stage magician for parties and shows, but it does make sufficient money that Natasha can practice her sorcery in peace.
Personality/Motivation: Natasha has one main aim in her life, to learn all she can about magic. An accomplished Thaumaturge, she is currently studying the Hermetic tradition and from there will probably branch out into Cabalistic methods. She studies constantly and is always on the look out for a new book or other source of spell knowledge. She isn't foolhardy in her pursuit, however, but she will follow up any lead she gets as best as she can.
For all her magical prowess (and she is fairly powerful, probably more than she realizes), Natasha is also shy and very much a bookworm. Her appearance and her interests made many people wary of her all though college, so her people skills aren't what they could be. Currently, Natasha is hoping to add "consultant to the Phenomena Department" to her resume, as well as researching spells for dispelling magical enchantments and the ability to fly.
Quote: "Ahem... Darkness from twilight, crimson from blood that flows... Buried in the flow of time... in thy great name, I pledge myself to darkness! Those who oppose us shall be destroyed by the power you and I possess! DRAGO-"
"Owww..." *cough* "What did I do wrong *this* time?"
Powers/Tactics: Her studies in Thaumaturgy have given Natasha command of a wide number of spells. Most are simple cantrips, useful around the house, but less so in a combat situation. She does have command of a variety of attack spells however, and true to her Thaumaturgy nature these spells call upon various elemental forces.
Natasha's favorite spell is her Flame Lance, which produces a searing shaft of fire from her hand. It is simple, easy to cast and she rarely makes a mistake casting it. Her next favorite is Fireball, which appears a glowing ball of fire than then detonates in a blast of heat and flame. The Solar Flare and Summon Lightning spells are powerful, but more difficult to cast, and Natasha tries not to rely on them too often at the moment. She does like the debilitating effects of Summon Lighting and will cast that if she feels she can do so safely.
Natasha's best spell is her Barrier. Like all Barriers, it must be centered on her, and must be wrapped around her to form a circle (or bubble). As this is one of the first spells she ever learned (and she's been improving it ever since) she can cast it without a second through (highly useful considering how destructive Silent Möbius magic can be). She has also mastered various spells to detect and analyze magical energy, and will cast any one of them as needed.
As Natasha can't always control the energy at her command, any mistakes she makes while casting a spell (and she does make mistakes from time to time), tend to cause a spell to overload her system, giving her wracking pains, headaches and nausea. To counter these effects, Natasha will take extra time with her spells, or cast them at a reduced power level.
Appearance: Natasha is 25 years old, stands a well-endowed 5'10", with long legs, slim hips and a narrow waist. Her raven-black hair falls in a great wave well past her waist, ending somewhere near her knees. She has bright blue eyes, and very pale skin.
Normally, Natasha is found dressed in business attire, which includes dress shirt, tie, suit jacket and skirt. When actively engaged in spell casting or other rituals, she tends to dress in more archaic dress, such as quasi-medieval clothing. She also has her "sorceress costume," a revealingly cut outfit that she keeps hidden in the back of her closet, She doesn't wear this one much anymore, especially after getting arrested for spell-casting without an license while dressed in it.
