I used to be afraid of the bogeyman, until I found out I was just like him!
My name is Nelly and I belong to one of the oldest cults in the world, The Cult of Mothers. For years, the Masters have been kidnapping witches, stealing our rituals, and forcing us to be their slaves. They took our spirits, our very ancestors, and turned them into shadow slaves. Now, the very spirits that helped us are out to destroy us. Yet, we Mothers are going to keep fighting. We will fight tooth and nail to lead the shadows back into the light.
