Full Name Samantha Valentine
Species Saber toothed lion
Abilities Witch's familiar
Samantha was born over 15,000 years ago in North America. Slow clap for our majestic old girl.
She died inside a sacred caveman dwelling, and it better not have been those nasty cavemen that did it. Rude.
In the 1600's, way way way after her death, a necromancer named Ambrose resurrected her with only her bones to work with because he's that awesome. She was not very amused at the prospect of serving a tasty human, but she quickly grew to love Ambrose as he always kept her fed even if it meant he got nothing.
When Ambrose was fatally stabbed, he fled to the Underworld with Samantha carrying his books. They ran to an enchanted cave, and Ambrose tragically died. Samantha remained alive, with the magic of the cave keeping her sustained, even with her witch being dead. She stayed there for centuries, guarding Ambrose's body and his precious necromancy books.
She met Felix, a Cerberus shifter, who was one of the people tasked with guarding the enchanted cave. He was kind to her, and fed her, so she allowed him to read the necromancy books, and didn't eat him for it like a good girl.
Samantha knew someone would come for Ambrose and his books, and was content to wait for that day, no matter how long it took.
