Mantis Spirits have an advertising campaign, convincing people that they can fight the Bug Spirit menace by being Mantis hosts... leaving out the part where the host will die.

Cassandra Withers, former saleswoman, lost her family in Chicago and developed a hatred for Bugs. She agreed to become a Mantis host.

Now the being known as Cassandra Withers is a Force 9 Mantis Spirit who works as a liaison to the FBI, working in the Anti-Bug unit.

She is an Orchid Mantis (DT 29) Nymph of Force 8. When dealing with players she gains +8 dice to talk to them, and her limit is 8 higher. (This is due to the Empathy power).

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Secretly A Mantis Cassandra is a Mantis Nymph Spirit (Masking with 18 dice as a Magic 3 Adept). She'll help you only if it furthers her own interests somehow (you're way too small to be much concern for her). Just calling her can cause a run complication with the FBI at GM Fiat.
Bug Knowledge Cassandra is an expert on all forms of Bug spirits.
Twisted Magic Cassandra knows many things about magic no one should mess with...
UCAS Government Connections She has managed to have the ear of many in the UCAS government.
Bug Hotspots Cassandra has an uncanny ability to have at least some information on any bug infestation.
Government Favors Cassandra has pull in more governments than just the UCAS.
Magical Stealth She knows many forms of magically hiding in plain site, and can train others... if that serves her purposes. (Covers Masking, Extended Masking, Flexible Signature, Astral Chameleon, etc.)
MilSpec Resources This applies to anything related to the military.
ARES Macrotechnology Knowledge Applies to ARES, their subsidiaries, their projects, their equipment, and their employees.
Mantis Hunger Cassandra will push a little further if it means she can eat some bug souls.
Grip On The FBI The FBI may be starting to lose control over her... She now has greater control over the Seattle office. (I'm sure it's fine.)
