Scathach

Scáthach was once an English woman who was descended from the druids and their Roman conquerors. 

A worshiper of old gods, she left for the British colonies as a stowaway on a voyage that was plagued with death. 

Upon being discovered at landfall, the British soldiers blamed Scáthach’s female presence for enraging the sea gods, imprisoned her and sentenced her to be burned at the stake as a witch. She answered the call of more ancient and bloodthirsty gods and massacred the soldiers, thereby incriminating the Native Americans and allowing her to escape into the wild. 

In the 1500s, Scathach came across the exiled former leader of the Roanoke colony, Tomasyn White, who she spared from a wild boar, in exchange for her soul. 

After White returned to Roanoke and violently regained control of the colony, the colonists were subjugated to follow in Scáthach’s religious ways. The colony migrated to a location in North Carolina, hundreds of miles away. White’s own son, Ambrose, defied his mother and called on the colonists to return to Christ. 

As such, White personally killed the entire colony, so that their souls would belong to Scáthach. As a final component of the deal, White let Scáthach take her life, for eternal posthumous servitude. 

Over the hundreds of years since, many encountered Scáthach and her ghostly Roanoke followers. While most would die under White’s blade, Scáthach had a strong sexual appetite that she loved to have sated by hapless men.
