Pact 4 (amulet); Puppet 3 (kiss)
Ginny carries a pepperbox (8 shots, 2d4) and a small knife. She also has 2 perfume bottles filled with poison. She’s immune, so she can drink it, put it on her lips, etc. Anyone who gets a few drops in his system must make an Incredible (11) Vigor roll. If failed, the victim dies instantly. If made, the cowpoke becomes violently ill and suffers a –4 penalty to all Trait and skill rolls made for 1d8 hours.
The ghost-rock amulet has been given a gold coating to disguise it. It allows Ginny to communicate with the creature via a mental link. She must concentrate to do this. In addition to giving her control over the rock devil, the amulet lets her cast the pact black-magic spell.
Ginny is a member of the Wichita Witches and is part of their plan to take Fort Clark. She is posing as the wife of an officer at Fort 51.
It is clear that she had something to do with the summoning of the bizarre “rock creature” that terrorized the fort and murdered Private Steen, Corporal Whitetail, and Bud Robbins. It is suspected she may have had something to do with the Devil Bat attack that occurred on the train leading up to the derailment prior to the infiltration by other Wichita Witches.
She also gave the camp food poisoning.
She is currently being held by Union troops and is en route to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
