Afraid: Madame Lamara Keene: Devourer of Dreams

Started by Judd, May 07, 2006, 01:04:24 AM

Previous topic - Next topic


A woman who reads people's dreams and tells them what they mean.  She loves hearing about their dreams.  She is a liar and a con artist but she truly loves to hear about their dreams.  She asks people to go into deeper and deeper trance states and she becomes more and more adept at getting to the depths of their subconscious thoughts.

During such a trance she was killed by those who were helping her grift her clients because she was felt guilty about being a liar and talked to a police officer.  But it was a bad time to kill her.  She had already made her home in her client's subconscious, able to leave the now small shack when the client dreams.

The client becomes pregnant and she becomes addicted to the baby's dreams, building a home in the child's head too and realizes she can jump from house to house at will.  When the child is born into the world, so is the Devourer of Dreams.  The child is born in a coma, the mother loses it and becomes the Devourer's Enforcer, the father holds on to impotent hope.  The devourer builds new homes in more stable grounds.

Her influence in the world would be to have homes in the minds of people all over the world, never having to stay in one shabby subconscious house but able to visit times when many people are dreaming all over the world and eventually to eat the world's dreams.

On to the lovely numbers.
