Abequa was part of Quetzacoatyl’s cult in the caves beneath Baton Rouge. She was raised to be a sacrifice for the creature, song being part of the ritual her voice was trained from birth.
But… she was a late bloomer, as the creature only took those who had reached proper adulthood and so her sister was actually taken before her. Curious and wishing to view the face of her God, she snuck into the caves and witnessed a horrifying reality. The creature that they called God, was a monster. It violated and devoured her sister as she watched helplessly, then created a clone from it’s own body. So, she ran.
She stayed in the bunkers near the caves, eating what food remained there and hunting what she could while avoiding the cultists looking for her. That was when the Sabbat arrived, looking for the cultists and the caves.
Fighting for her life but still overpowered, the Sabbat took her prisoner, but after what she had seen she had no trouble telling them what they wanted to know and where to find the creature.
Her voice had impressed Echo, who wanted to Embrace her as a Daughter of Cacaphony, but her tenacity and will to not only live, but escape, impressed Talwar and she was given the option of going with either but she would not be walking away. In the end, she chose to learn from Talwar as an Assamite, seeing those skills as more important to her survival in the long term.
She does a have trick however, Melpomanee burns in her blood as well though the dark ritual the Sabbat performed. She now sings with Wicked Carnival, joining Dragos and Animal and enjoying learning about a world she never knew existed.
