Witchhaunt, aka Wilhemina "Mina" Wyndham, was your typical well-to-do snob. She had almost everything: money, looks, and popularity.
Yet Mina never had what she wanted. Love. Her divorced parents vied for her attention with gifts, trying to \"one up\" each other and using her as the prize. In school she did well enough, a solid A student, had tons of wealthy and popular friends. Plus as many love interests, male or female she wanted.
But that was still just "attention", it wasn't love. She sought out love--even trying to break up Brent and Lydia, the lovie-dovie since junior high couple who seemed to her to flaunt their priceless gift of true love. She tried scheme after scheme, but the two simply would not break apart.
Finally in college, Brent and Lydia married, and in a fit of rage Mina sought out magic--real magic, in a last vain attempt to win out over her "rival", Lydia. She sought pagans and wiccans--who usually directed her to the Three-Fold law--but what did that matter to someone who had everything? Nothing could hurt her! Still seeking and with the funds to dig deeper than most she stumbled upon certain long thought lost works.
The works pointed her to magics, magics that would let her gain power enough to take what she wanted.
So she committed herself, and cast the spell, seeking death of Lydia by magic--her dark desperate pleas and spells were answered! Lydia died--but the three fold law held true, taking Brent and Mina with its power unleashed. Yet Brent and Lydia went on safe in the light beyond--outside the reach of Mina's dark desires.
Then the Goddess who she'd invoked demanded a higher price than the three fold law. The Goddess had fulfilled the spell, and done as asked, but now she had what SHE wanted.
A soul, a spirit, to act as an agent on Earth. She used her powers to resurrect Mina, as a dark thing--a blasphemous tortured soul of magic to serve the Goddess' whims. Transforming Mina into the villainous WitchHaunt.
As the Goddess's agent she knows all the spells of pain and need, and can call forth the Goddess' Vampiric brood to serve her on Earth.
