Georgette Lafleur is the daughter of the famed Voodoo King. She comes from a long line of royalty and has inherited her families ability to commune with the dead. However, Georgette has developed a secondary ability, she can harness the special abilities and powers of the dead. in turn using their abilities for her self. This is seen as a blessing to everyone except Georgette herself. Against everyone's wishes, save her own, she has journeyed to Void city to prove her mettle and worth.
Powers/Abilities: Georgette can speak to and learn from the deceased, and through channeling can take on the powers and abilities of the deceased as well. Taking on the powers of the dead is taxing to her system and she cant maintain the link for a long period of time (usually only about 7 minutes) This leaves her more winded than regular channeling. Whereas after regular channeling she is winded, after using abilities, she cant do much more than walk, This usually last for 10 to 20 minutes. Channeling also takes time and concentration, if she is doing anything in addition to the channeling (fighting, talking etc) it takes 15 seconds longer. She is far from helpless however, when push comes to serve she is a moderate hand to hand combatant, and she is a expert with the rapier and saber.
Clothing: Georgette doesn't dress in typical voodoo priestess, or princess garb, instead opting for more traditional clothing. She is often found wearing loose fitting clothes or clothes that don't restrict movement. And she is almost always barefoot, she finds it easier to channel souls if she is in direct contact with the earth. usually the feet, although any part of the body will do. She also wears a choker with a skull shaped red ruby around her throat, it is said (she believes) that the soul of her dead mother (the only soul she cant seem to summon) lies in the ruby. She can speak with the spirit freely, and through these conversations is how she found out she can use the abilities of the dead.
Weaknesses/Drawbacks: Channeling doesn't come without setbacks and channeling isn't instantaneous. It takes her about 20 seconds to channel a random spirit, about 30 to channel a specific spirit. If she isn't touching the ground with any part of her body it takes about 30 seconds longer, with any body part outside of the souls of her feet take 15 seconds longer. If she doesn't have the choker on it takes an additional 45 seconds cumulative.
