Sugarplum (Real Name: Eileen MacRae)
A Sample Character for Wearing the Cape
Eileen McRae is a Irish descendant that lives for dancing and arts. She was always so good and gracious in ballet that all the Christmas time she was put into stage for the Sugarplum Fairy role into the the Nutcracker ballet.
And it was during one of those presentations, when she was already at the university, that a gang invaded the theater to rob the presentation money (that would go for a local orphanage).
Being put under the point of a weapon make her starts to panic, while her perceptions started to get changed. In the first moment, he thought she would be dying with a heart attack and these would be her hallucinating in the process. However, she saw that her body started to change, going smaller and smaller until she was the size of a thumb, the wings of her sugarplum fairy costume growing real and flapping and making her flying around the gangsters, she feeling she could create some kind of magic, making them see things that were not there, changing their perceptions even to see the Rat King as a kind of drooling Ratzilla with sharp claws and vicious, drooling teeth.
The gangsters ran away and were catch by the police, while Eillen tried to understand what happened to her. A local D-Class Ajax breakthrough that was in the presentation found her and said she was a breakthrough, and that a guy he know, a Merlin-Type New Age magician, would help her to undestand her powers.
The New Age guy teached her the basics (like growing back her size), but his magic didn’t worked good for her, because she, as a fairy, would need to learn Glamour, a kind of illusional magic that could snare the senses and mess with the mind. She is now, while using her powers for good, trying to understand her weird powers. Some says that she was from a lineage of fairy-touched people from past and the breakthrough just made her going through a kind of Chrysalis that didn’t happened since the time pre-Event.
However, she should not be taken as a little Pollyanna, a Goody Two-Shoes. Sure, she stands for the good and right, and likes beautiful things and trinkets, and turn into half-Tinkerbell, half-Fairy Godmother when into her “fairy” form, but she is also capable to go very mischievous and even nasty when needed.

The magic from the fairies from the past (or some people says that) is a magic related with Illusion, the forces from Nature and Mind Tricks. Glamour uses parts from Academics, Rapport, Deceive and Provoke, is based on the cycles of life (like life and death, the woman’s cycle and nature’s), but can also be used to force the nature to go havok.
O: Glamour can be used to eliminate things like Geas, a kind of curse based on the actions of people. Also sensing magic (of any kind, by life and magical fluxes). Glamour can’t normally dispel magical forces others than those from Glamour, but a accomplished user can call upon the nature to remove the stench of the unnatural on something.
C: the main staple of Glamour, can be used to put some people under a Geas or to bless their weapons or things. Also can be used to work with nature, like generating more food if some is available and cleanse them from unnatural. The Control of Nature Forces also allows to create some, for example, Clean Water or Heating when needed. Creating Illusions, like make people see a Horde of Orcs are also a staple from Glamour
