Background/History: This is Anita Blake after the Second Book Laughing Corpse. She has recieved 2 Vampire Marks from Jean Claude, but is still basically a well trained normal person.

Personality/Motivation: She actually has to raise the dead or her powers would get away from her and she would start to spontaneously raise dead things against her will. She is working for Animators Inc. though and that gets her powers more than enough workout to keep them quiet. Also she likes working with the police and solve murders involving Paranormal causes (ie Vampire Attacks). She always wants to prevent more deaths of innocents.

Quote: "I spend most of my waking hours confronting and destroying things I fear."
Guilty Pleasures, page 217

Powers/Tactics: She tends to pull out her gun and shoot anything that is directly threatening her. She fights dirty because at her size everyone outmasses her and getting maximum damage in keeps her alive. She will use her Judo on non-supernatural targets, but knows better to bother with paranormals. She also carries silvered knives in wrist holsters and ankle holsters. She uses a 9mm Browning HiPower as her main weapon, her 9mm Firestar for backup or for outfits that don't allow the Browing to be concealed. She also will sometimes carry a .38 2-shot Derringer. All loaded with Glazier Safety Rounds, silvered for maximum damage to Paranormal targets. She also has a sawed off shotgun that she can use as even more firepower and backup, but rarely carrys that around due to it being illegal.

Appearance: She is 5'3" tall 130lbs, Black curly haired, Eyes brown so dark that they look black. She is pale complected, She usually dresses very professionally when doing her Animation work (Silk blouse, short jacket, shirt, 3" heels)) She will wear a coverall while she acually animates the corpse because of the blood mess

Campaign Use: If the PCs are going up against the Supernatural, then Anita is the person to talk to. She doesn't put up with fools very well, but if you give her respect she will show the same back. She can look at a corpse and usually tell you what killed it. If you wait 3 days and the corpse is otherwise intact she can raise it as a zombie and let you ask it what killed it. She is a great friend and someone who you don't want as an enemy. If you are a Vampire or a Lycanthrope with a reputation for killing people, stay out of St Louis or you might find yourself going up against her. At this point in her career she sticks around St' Louis where she helps out the Fledgling Police RPIT program. He help has been intrumental for changing the way that police all over the country deal with paranormal threats
