#23 – Sheridan McDonnell

| November 30, 2011 | 0 Comments


The Pleiatic Seers are a group of the seven most powerful and pure oracles in the world.  Once every thousand years seven seers are chosen to be part of the creation of a set of prophesies for the next one thousand years. The gathering is called the Prophesy of the Whole and is held on the summer solstice.  The ruling constellation of the ceremony is the Pleiades for mythological reasons (the original seers were the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, hence the name Pleiatic Seers.)  The event is signaled by the birth of a child that contains all seven of the oracle powers – Sight, Touch, Smell, Head, Heart, Spirit-Light, and Blood, who is known as the Pleiona (the mother of the Pleiades in the myth) who is in charge of choosing and gathering all the seers together.  It can take years to find the right ones and then wait for the ages to align corrects – each seer must be a virgin woman between the ages of 7 and 49 (7 years apart each), with a single, specific, and powerful oracle ability.

Sherri is the oldest of the Pleiatic Seers, but she was not the first to be found.  Sherri was discovered by a distant relative when she was 44. The relative was from an Irish sorcerer family that moved to America in the 1840s.  The girl was tracing her roots and met up with Sheridan and realized that this woman was a pure Sensa and, although the girl had been hoping to become a Pleiatic seer herself, she put Sheridan in touch with Seers United in the USA who sent Cece to meet her.

At first glance Sheridan is a nice, older lady who grows herbs and makes candles.  She is the local midwife and comes from a long line of women with the “second sight.”  She is a strange mix of sweet and sour, being both kind and gentle at times, but also being harsh and short temptered at times.  She tries hard to be eccentric and is good enough at all that she does that she can get away with it.

One word to describe her:  Contradiction.
