Leannan

Hailing from the lands of Ireland and Wales are the fabled leannan. At times thought to be vampires these faerie women are bloodthirsty killers. What separates the leannan from vampires and other faeries is their unearthly beauty, grace, and melodic voices.

Unpractised at combat they use the charm power of their singing voices to lure victims to their touch. A person who hears the leannan compelling song must resist with a Willpower roll. Failure means that the victim is held motionless, dazed by the unearthly song. If the victim is slapped or shaken, another roll is granted. Even if the victim succeeds on the roll, he suffers a –1 distraction penalty to all actions.

Once enthralled the leannan approaches the victim and drains the victims life and essence, though this is a slow process stealing one point per day. Leannan hunt by inspiring young artistic males (their preferred prey) to create something magnificent. The victim is subsequently drained to death. Any artistic endeavour undertaken by someone in the thrall of these faeries is always the best work that he could ever create. Leannan are particularly attracted to Occult Poets. The combination of artistic creativity and magic is all too tempting.
