Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #23: The Morrigan

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

VABI has explained that we aren't against more chaos in the world, as long as there is something of a world left. We also pointed out that VABI's services are rarely sought out by the more mystical beings that are found on Earth 32aa and nearby dimensions of interest. But there are always exceptions and one of them is the Morrigan.

Truth be told the Morrigan only lightly uses our services. She uses our communication division to send messages and our banking to redirect money to her various projects. Honestly, we are happy to keep our associations with the Morrigan to a minimum. She spooks the higher management not to put too fine a point on it.

The reason is that the Morrigan gives gifts, and our management know their own nature too well in refusing temptation. The Morrigan's interest is in strife. So she will give whatever gift to the person most likely to cause the most chaos. That means she'll gift to a terrorist, or a serial killer, or even a dedicated freedom fighter or a doctor. It's hard to foresee her moves in this game she plays with herself, or herselves. We at VABI have counted three different incarnations of the Morrigan coming into our offices. It makes identity verification difficult at times.

The nature of her gifts are varied. From the mundane sort of information or money to being embued with magical powers or given a magical device. The problem with her gifts is that the Morrigan is the type of being to give scissors to a child and tell the child to run very, very fast. It's not that they are traps really, but they are highly dangerous things and if the new owner is not careful it will blow up in his face.

Which would suit the Morrigan just fine. As noted, she spooks the higher management.

  1. Great set-up, creation! Both written and created. The art piece has a really appropriate vibe to it, kinda spooky, kinda warning you off if you pay attention.
