Quote: “No, not THAT Selena Kyle!”

Selena entered the story as a production assitant at the local TV news station, where Jack Magus worked as the weatherman. She’s cute, spunky, and had a thing for Jack. She was a member of the Circle of Thoth and is a believer in all things paranormal. During the group’s first adventure, she found out that Jack is a mage. Since then, she tried to get him to teach her about magic. Jack determined that she does have the ability and potential to learn it.

An evil cult tried to use her as a sacrifice to resurrect an ancient Black Court vampire. She was rescued by the PCs in the middle of the ritual. The ritual worked, confirming her magical nature. She tried again to get Jack to teach her magic, but he refused because he didn’t want her to be burdened with the responsibility, and because he wasn’t entirely sure she would use it wisely. He didn’t want to see her on the receiving end of a Warden’s blade. Later, she tried to get Marco to teach her, but he was too new to it himself. She left town in search of Jack or any other way to the arcane.

She came back to town and eventually crossed paths with the heroes. She confessed to “infiltrating” the Black Court in order to keep an eye on them. But her time with the vampires has left her…changed. Eventually, she revealed herself to be a full-powered sorceress, seemingly aligned with the Black Court. Apparently she learned a few things during her time spent with Budek and Megar.

Later, Selena appealed to the heroes to forgive her betrayal. Her story is that in order for Megar to teach her to use magic, she had to swear an allegience to Budek on her power itself! For a wizard, this is never taken lightly, because to break such an oath would mean the loss of one’s magic. But she had no choice in the matter, but was able to alter the deal to be the promise of a single favor to Budek or Megar at any time in the future. And that favor, of course, was called in during the Black Court assault on Braun’s home.

After pleading her case with Marco and Claire, she joined them in rescuing Braun from Budek himself and also helped destroy the ancient vampire and Alex Megar too. Her relations with the heroes remains tenuous.
