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).
|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.|
