Faithful Warden of the Cathedral
Invocation: As being part of the church her whole life, she's managed to eke out a position in it. She is their wizard and its part of her very identity despite the theological differences of opinion. From that her magic has a decidedly holy flare to it often attempting to emulate the miracles of lore.
Compulsion: She will fight for her people tooth and nail, threaten it and you may find yourself on the end of a particularly nasty curse.
These Battle-Stained Walls of My Soul
Invocation: Magic can only be performed for things you believe in and Molly's power is all that and more. It remembers every being its ever come in contact with and it evolves to suit the situation as needed.
Compulsion: The ghouls in New Mexico showed her the power of fear and the Black Court Vampire incident taught Molly to use her magic in ways she never thought of before. Every supernatural being that Molly has destroyed is permanently etched into her mind and its burned into her soul. Those who have looked into her eyes see her standing on a mound of past and future enemies who have or will cross her and each one will cost her though some more than others. May be compelled as if it were a mild mental consequence.
The nightmares alone keep her from sleeping occasionally.
As far as Molly knows she was orphaned on the day she was born, her mother only alive long enough give her dying wishes that she’d be sent to the Saint Uriel’s Archangel Monastery just on the outskirts of New York City. Her aptitude for magic however did not go unnoticed, possibly by design, as she was quickly taken in by Father Marius Nicchi.
Phase Aspect: Definitely Not a Muggle!
Invocation: Molly was, if not born, raised knowing magic and its through that she has a unique perspective and a great aptitude in manipulating the mechanics of it in ways other people may not have thought of.
Compulsion: She takes many of the qualities of her life for granted in that she's always had what she's had. Though she has had to work to maintain them its almost effortless to do so. Take them away and it would be as if you pulled the carpet out from underneath here
As Molly grew up Marius turned out to be a man who had enough talent to safely guide her in the arts of magic and gain her contacts to the Church’s mystical clergy. Many a day passed where debates in theology and magical theory took place when books and vinyl music records could not keep the pair from interacting on an intellectual level.
As she grew up, her abilities however quickly began to match the limits that of her father figure. Between her youth and during her teenage years she would accompany Marius on various activities, her talent with magic eventually extending her reputation as problem solver for many of the Catholic Churches' supernatural problems in the United States when more official means could not be of use. With access to a network of minor talents throughout the Catholic order she began to push beyond him with an expanded knowledge until her activities were spotted by the White Council. In short order she tested as Wizard potential and put under the part time apprenticeship of the regional Warden Commander. With a war on she was drafted, despite her ties one of the largest organizations on the planet.
At the age of sixteen and one of the youngest apprentice wizards, she survived her first encounter with the Red Court War during a Ghoul attack on the Warden Training camp in New Mexico, though mostly due to quick nerve on part of fully trained Wardens. Unfortunately this would be only the beginning of her nightmares as a Wizard of the White Council though. The relationship with her father figure Father Nicchi would soon be at an end as a result.
Phase Aspect: Eldritch Citizen of the Vatican
Invocation: Molly has been afforded a very unusual place within the Roman Catholic Church. She literally is a citizen of Vatican City, passport and all. Though not widely publicized this gives is a level access that few could dream of and number of contacts within the organization the others would never meet.
Compulsion: On the flip side however, she is perhaps for the rest of her life, on call. If she's needed she will have to answer the call. Though usually this is a matter relating to a particularly unruly spirit, possession or identifying a magical artifact and determining whether or not it truly has a religious value. That does not mean that the call can't be much much more dire.
The Story - "Eldritch Affairs"
Even with surviving a confrontation with the cannibalistic Ghouls, Molly’s story had yet to begin, it did however flower into a bloody mess when an attack meant for New York’s regional Warden Commander found only Father Nicchi comatose, near death and leaving Molly as the only one in the area with possible talent to find out who and why.
The clues however were there to be had as she discovered the possibility it was magic itself that bound Nicchi to his death like state. Black Court Vampires, a group of pure fledgling attempting to eke out a living had been preying on the local minor talent population Marius had been a hard fought prize. And the evidence was there.
Through the skin of her teeth and memories of how a real wardens truly acted, Molly went medieval. The coven met its end and doom was avoided but came with the cost of Father Nicchi’s life and possible information relating to the identity of Molly’s birth parents and how he knew of her magical talent. All that had been gained was the ashy piles of black court runaways and the revelation of her middle name.
Phase Aspect: Experimentation is my Middle Name
Invocation: Or at least Experimenter of God, it decidedly has an angelic quality to it, and with it she has learned long and hard about the value of research and experimentation. If given even a few moments Molly can whip up a frightful and original working quickly. Though like some experiments the results can be unprecedented and decidedly unpredictable.
Compulsion: There is power in the name Hnsiinel, even with just that portion of it a strong tie to Molly can be found and formed... but perhaps even more importantly something much bigger is tied to both Molly and that middle name.
Alt. Compulsion: Even knowing her middle name will get her interest though its a bit heavy handed. You want something just claim you have knowledge of it and you'll have yourself a bargaining chip.

Phase Aspect: Eidetic Mind
Invoke: The mind of a wizard isn't something most people care to entertain in any fashion, Molly is no different. Her ability to retain knowledge is immense even if its not entirely understood at the moment of acquisition. With it she can carry anything she has ever been exposed to with her, whether it be bookish knowledge of passing information. Some suspect that it could be some form of lesser Sight while others think that it could just be the blooming of a prodigy. But when invoked she can call up details about any scene she's lived through from the clothing on people's backs to physical descriptions. And just as readily begin word for word recitation of complete chapters from books, or lyrics.
Compel: Her abilities are central to her but they also cut just as hard as they give. With her the acquisition of knowledge is one of her own core impulses and whats more what is learned is seldom ever unlearned. Curiosity could kill her in the search and she will search regardless, or it could drive her mad if she learns the wrong things.
Guest Star Redux - "xxxxx"
Phase Aspect: God is my Shepherd
Invoke: Perhaps its magic, perhaps its fate but Molly has been in a few tight spots and miraculously survived them where others haven't. The same plans which compel her to do good in the world also seem to push her in the right direction in the nick of time most of the time.
Compel: The way of the world and how God works in it is a mysterious thing; but not so mysterious is that He has a plan Molly, though the plan itself is a mystery. Call its as needed. Often this involves her being pulled almost at random out of instinct to certain locations.
