Snow Fright: Arkham Nights by SnowFright Snow Fright: Arkham Nights by SnowFright
Looky here! I finished that sketch! Snowfright ala Adam Hughes (because if you can't beat them, pretend desperately to be them!)

And to go with it a little insight into our girls head, I can't believe I've had her for over a year and yet not published anything about her really yet! I am a bad, bad creator!

----------------------Arkham Nights.........................................


They don't lock you up in Arkham for being a happy, reasonable person.
They lock you up in Arkham for being unstable and dangerous. And right now I'm feeling pretty fucking unstable and more than a little dangerous. The name on my file says Anne, Anne Ominous, but that's not what I was born. There's another file claiming I'm Gail but that's wrong too – truth of the matter is no one in this joint has bothered to learn my real name. Criminals and crazies come in and out of this place like it was a cheap motel, let's face it, Arkham Asylum practically has a revolving door for girls like me so they don't bother digging too deep. Then again they've probably been looking in all the wrong places, there's no record in their databases before my metamorphisis - I didn't get into any trouble back then and the only picture of me that ever got into the press was in the back of the Gotham Times in a badly written obituary. They got my name wrong then too.

You can call me Snow Fright. A fitting name for a girl with skin as white as snow, a wig as black as ebony and a need for revenge as red as blood. It's a good enough name, it protects me in the cruel pantomime we call a city. It cushions me. I died when I was 21 – barely legal and barely breathing face-down in a river being dragged under. Pushed under. The people who killed me got away with it too, 'Student Prank Turns Tragic in Off Campus Party” - they said the poor kids despaired when there practical joke went wrong and drowned their dear friend, they were left scarred it said. Not scarred enough. It was no prank that killed me, they weren't joking when they held my head under and didn't let up. Maybe they did me a favour – no one goes looking for a dead girl.

I will have my revenge, I assure you, but I'll be careful about it. Until then I'll look after number one, me, my parents are a world away with 3 other kids and they probably miss me but waking up in a mud-encrusted Halloween costume in a river in the middle of night? Well that changed me. I have no family now. I have friends though in my new life, girls and guys who wear as many masks as me. Cell mates. It never hurts to have a contact book of trouble makers proficient at death, not in my line of work.

Unlike some of my peers my inauguration into the league of super humans unfortunately didn't come with a dose of mega-intelligence. Nor did it grant me the ability to secrete poison from my fingertips. Which is a shame for a villain whose modus operandi is poisoning folk, given the circumstances I probably should have come up with something simpler, like guns. Instead I use apples – poisoned, cast steel, anything that works. I just got an unexplained resurrection, as far as I know no super villain has yet laid claim to my continued survival so I don't worry about it.

For the last year I henched my way around the underworld circuit – everyone from Penguin to Scarecrow, working hard and learning the ropes but goon work isn't my future. I have a plan. Five people are responsible for my little accident and until those five are punished I won't rest, I will steal and vandalise, maim and hurt. I will punish Gotham until my mission is filled.

Well... I will when I get out of this cell again, but I hear there's a scam on about that for tonight so maybe you should double check your doors tonight and lock your windows tight... just incase.

Since there is no actual college I can recall in Gotham, did you create your own school name? and if not could I suggest
Westmont Post-secondary school of politics. I think it sounds nice. I don't even know what classes she was taking. Oh what name did the paper write in the obituary? Curious ::)

Ooh I love that name! :love: But my head canon is that she was an English lit major with a minor in biochemistry (useful for those poisons! XD) at Gotham City U (I'm not so good at naming things clearly :D) - it's a very middle of the road university she lucked into a partial-scholarship at. Annnd I can't remember the exact name the papers had but it was a close approximation of her real name, just mispelled/changed slightly, I don't think I've revealed Snow's real name anywhere though ^^; I guess in a way it's to distance the person she was from the one she becomes post-death, she suffers from dissociative identity disorder and gets reeeallllyyy crazy if anyone brings up her past incarnation so I try to avoid mentioning it, it's like a little mystery thing she has :giggle:

Ooooh so she would just blow when B-man mentions her real name? 

  I'm also curious as to how Mentality would act around her, or vice versa... I think of Mentality as a Lawful Neutral, kind of like the Spectre, but a bit more kind hearted. She doesn't really give a hoot about many adults, but she does carry a great deal of love in children. She also has this  thing where she would generally give members in society 3 chances to live. As in baseball, 3 strikes and your out.( as in she will steal your life-force)
  She despises blind violence and believes that some people should be allowed their vengance. She dislikes when a life is lost, since she is similar to a life giver, but she understands that sometimes it can't be helped.  I also didn't really give her a real name..

I was thinking of having her intern at Arkham Asylum. she's 19 yrs now cuz she follows my age. Generally. :love: 

I should make a list of her powers so people won't get confused with her.

Exactly - she would go proper off the rails if it was mentioned, and for a character who cultivates a fairly smooth personality it would be quite a thing! :-)

Ooh I love the sound of Mentality! Snow would never hurt a child so that shouldn't come between them, and whilst she is definitely a murderous villainess she doesn't kill for no reason (in her eyes) there's always a motive to her murders - although maybe not a motive regular folk would understand ^^;
Snow lives for pleasure and luxury (and revenge) and isn't ranked as high on the Bat's list as some rogue's as her crimes rarely involve randomized killing/holding the city hostage :-) - she also has a tenuous relationship with some 'hero/neutral' type characters as she doesn't go out of her way to cause them trouble.
How do you think the two would interact?

And that sounds great - being an intern/work studies placement at Arkham would definitely give Mentality an inside perspective on what she's up against in the city!

Awesome! See Mentality already has a villain friend and her name is Zinnia tac-mentality.deviantart.com/a…  She finds that sometimes it's better to have someone help who is capable of doing things she isn't.

So I do believe that there is a way that both Snow and Mentality can get along. Especially with her empath abilities. She would know how the majority of people feel around certain topics and such. She is capable of reading aura and would understand Snow better as a person if she really wanted to. If anything, I'm sure that Mentality could help Snow find her targets, she would simply state "don't get caught" or she might accompany her without her knowing, and deem whether or not the ones she's killing truly felt regret for what they did and if they are trying to reform. Odds are they won't so she'll give it to Snow to kill them.
most likely if she's there witnessing it, she will take his life-force.

Mentality's Powers (if your confused): Life-Force Manipulation 
Includes:
Aura reading- Able to see aura, determine one's strength, life span includes, Empathy, and Death 'sense', and occasionally seeing spirits
Life-Force Absorption- capable of 'stealing' one's life, and health, includes, Age Manipulation, and healing.
Aura Implanting-  capable of placing aura or life force into a person or object. includes, transfering her own life into another.
 She can attack by releasing her energy, or constructing weapons with her own life-force. She can also fly by using her aura to construct wings, or by controlling it to make herself fly.

I can actually go a little deeper into this but this comment is extremely long and I'm sorry.

Oh my no no no never apologize for long comments! I love reading them and learning more about your characters and how you imagine Mentality interacting with Snow - I love hearing your head canons about it :D
I wonder how her life-force powers would work around Snow (since she's technically dead ^^;) would they fritz out or do they still have effect on her kind of post-life/reanimation state? :-)

I still haven't figured out all the technicalities of Snow's ressurection - as  it currently stands Snow's powers are:
-Ability to heal vast amounts of damage (although at only a slightly faster rate than usual, so whilst she can heal most things serious injuries will take a looooong ass time to heal)
-Resistance to most viruses/illnesses, increased tolerance to poison (although that can still knock her out for a long time)
-Little/no aging - she hasn't apparently aged much in the last five years, it's still unclear as to whether she will or not or if she's some what immortal.
-Very slight increase to speed and fighting skills - nothing super human really, just increased muscle memory.

That's about it - she didn't get any kick as defensive/offensive skills or powers though (Mentality has some awesome powers going on!)

And I LOVED that opening sequence you made for Mentality - I just watched it on your profile, it's amazing :D
(And oh wow I've just seen the art you did of Snow - it is AWESOME - prepare yourself for effusive fangirl comments :love: )

Snow died on the Saturday before Halloween :-) I'm not sure of the date though (as I'm not sure what the year would technically be when she died) but in magical-date-time it would ideally be about the 28th I think :D

Youch! Having your name appear in all the official files of higher authority as "Anne Ominous" sounds a whole lot like that sure fire old trick that Odysseus pulled on the Cyclops in telling him "No man put out my eye" A menacing Mistress with a built in quality of anonymity should they happen to take up her trail and attempt to attach a name to the maniacal face. Gail, eh ........ This sounds even more like an ill wind which blows no good. Why do i have a suspicion that the diabolical divine femme, Fright's choice of an apple is that she can make it some sort of binary weapon, never combining the deadly final part until the last second so if she gets caught, can simply take a bite and have it pass as a nutritious snack rather than delicious device of destruction.

Thankyou hun!

I think they'd have a lot of fun together - so long as the talk of bloody revenge didn't come up lol!
Snow has a broken personality which makes her seem almost normal (if very, very unconcerned about people she doesn't know) until a trigger subject is mentioned and then she has a one-minded determination and strong anger issues I think :-)

Meanwhile Aurelie is generally reserved quiet...
She doesn't seem to focus on revenge...honestly I'm told she needs to have more 'fight' in her.

But she always seems to have an abused mentality.

I think Snow could probably help Aurelie loosen up a bit and get more fight in her - and Aurelie would definatly be a great help in cooling Snow off sometimes when she gets worked up and stubborn... ^^;

Ohmigosh I love that training montage! Snow would love to take her out for a night on the town - well a night stealing, capering, betting too much in casinos and refusing to pay up lol! It would be awesome!
I think Aurelie would be a good effect on Snow, there's very few people she'll listen to when she's in a fit of the Reds but Aurelie's such a calming personality and so reasonable!
