As a team, we forge ahead, with our heads high looking to the future. We are all part of The Deadly Sinners, The Dark Virtues as well as strong writers in our own respects. Meet our founding members and those that serve on The Twisted Path’s Governing Board (alphabetical)
Devine Defiance is the dark virtue that lurks behind every steely eyed gaze, every rigid stance, every set of arms stubbornly crossed across the chest. She is fiercely independent and is never swayed by opinions of others. She strolls easily along The Twisted Path, at times in the company of her loved ones, the other dark virtues, and at other times alone. If you are brave enough to trail close enough behind to keep her in your sights, don’t be surprised to find yourself deep in the cool darkness of shadows that line the path or at dizzying heights looking down upon it, for Defiance follows her own compass and fears nothing.
Once I roamed the halls of Valhalla, walking with the Gods, dispensing Justice. It was an honorable thing, being held in such high regard. I took great pride in my position. I believed myself to be fair. I believed that punishment should fit the crime regardless of who committed the offence. I was wrong. I dispensed Justice to the wrong person and was banished…, sent to live among the mortals for all eternity, never to return home. I spent many years wandering, sad and alone, trying to figure out how to get back into good graces with the Gods. Time passed and my heart hardened. Then I discovered a group, my sisters of virtue. They took me in and now I roam the path passing my own dark Justice out. If the laws of man have failed you, just call my name…Vigilante Valkyrie…but only if you are prepared for darkness.
Her Malevolent Majesty
Known by many names, many titles, the person behind the words remains the same. Be she our Governess, or Death Maiden, she has always held herself to a higher standard than most. Most recently we have chosen a new name for her. Now she is to be known as Her Malevolent Majesty. She holds herself with poise, with elegance. However do not mistake this for anything more than simply manners. She has no remorse, she does not look back. Forward is her Path, and she leaves a trail of bodies, and hearts, along the way. With Scythe and her sisters she walks the path, observing, drinking it all in. She effects all she meets, if you are lucky she will end your suffering.
As the Silver Tongued Duchess Eloquence is my specialty. My prose flows like liquid silver from my fingertips. My words are honey to the unsuspecting ear. It matters not how much warning I, or others, give for you will believe every word I speak. You should though, believe as I say. For every word is truth even if there are variations to a theme. What you believe is your choice, your error.
If I love you, I will not lie to you.
If I do not, you are not worthy of a lie.
My mandate, my mantra, my truth. Believe what you will, trust who you must, but know this; the spoken, or written, word have far more power than we were lead to believe. And I can change your view on everything.
