Urn Maldicta

First sighting: 50 Years Ago

Alias: The Curse of San Vilatin Swamp

Identity: Deceased – Vernon “Urn” Maldicta

Features: Pale skin, stringy black hair

Skills: Superhuman strength, invulnerability, spectral projection, necro touch (a spiritual touch that allows pain and torture to enter one’s mind)

Nobody goes to San Vilatin Swamp anymore. A man named Vernon Maldicta was tortured by a group of anti-immigration militia-men. Maldicta, an Italian-Spanish worker who was a legalized citizen, died and ended up encased in a deep pit of swamp muck.

His body was gone, but some said his spirit remained, seeking revenge on the descendents of those that tortured and killed him. They called the spirit “Urn” Maldicta. Nobody dared to say his name aloud because Maldicta is believed to translate to “bad word” or “curse” depending on who’s talking.

50 years after his murder, Maldicta’s wraith has tempered, but he still doesn’t have salvation nor peace and wants redemption and to find peace within himself.

Unfortunately, the world around him has changed. A land developer transformed much of the swamp into real estate, and none of the residents are even aware of the spirit that resides within it, lurking and seeking vengeance.
