Madhu Kuiper - Scion of Durga - The Skillful Secretary

Scions of the Second Refinement


Background: 
Drawn from a set of stock photos


Madhu Kuiper's parents died in an attack by Asura when she was a child. Afterwards, she was taken in by a mystery cult. The outward face of the cult was a temp agency called Office Solutions that specialized in place women into office jobs such as receptionists, file clerks, accountants, and other less than glorious positions. Through these women, many of them trained in espionage, the cult was able to quietly take control of these companies These companies then funded training women for hunting those monsters and cultists that were within the reach of well-funded and trained mortals to tackle.

Madhu has been a firm believer in the cult's goal to fund the exploits of heroes and free them up to be the warriors they were meant to be. However,she recently had to rescue a girl from the many unwitting clients of the cult who fill out many of their jobs requests. Someone had gotten in cautious about their use of sex as a weapon and a reputation that the local branch was a front for a brothel had worked its way into the offices.

Since then, Madhu has begun to worry about some of the tactics the cult uses to gain funding. She still feels that seduction has its place in their operations, but thinks that a number of branches and operatives make too liberal use of it and worries that it would put all the normal women employed by the public face of the cult into similar danger.

In addition, she has started to have niggling doubts about the methods used to recruit operatives to the cult proper. She hasn't said it out loud, even to herself, but she's started to worry that some of the branches of the cult have started to use brainwashing techniques and outright sorcery to forcibly recruit vulnerable girls into the cult under the justification of the ends justifying the means.

Description:  

Madhu is a young South African woman who manages to keep to the understated beauty that the cult encourages. Not a blatant, movie star beauty, but that of the subtle beauty stationed at the front desk of the office to warmly greet whoever entered with a warm smile. Unlike many of the cultists, she is skilled in both the martial and intrigue aspects of the cult but has made sure that her musculature doesn't appear much different than that of an active young woman and wears gloves to avoid gaining weapon oriented calluses.

Origin Level


Divine Patron: Durga


Primary Path: Pantheon Path: Devotee of Durga Mystery Cult - Athletics, Survival, Subterfuge
Contact: Manager Jyothi Van Ackkeren, leader of Madhu's branch.
Connections: Durga cultists
Access: The inner facilities of the Office Solutions mystery cult.

The cult did not immediately induct the young girl to their cause. She worked it out for herself what her foster mother was involved in and pushed herself into the cause of the Titanomachy. She has been very devoted to the cause of protecting mortals and creation from the ravages of the Asura and as soon as she reached eighteen, she began to supplement her lessons of war and business with lessons on the arts of love-making and seducing people while appearing to be a passive target.

Secondary Path: Role Path: A Wolf in Secretary's Guise - Firearms, Empathy, Academics
Contact: Mr. Kobe Klerk, a young PR agent working at the company she infiltrated
Connections: The company she has been placed with via the cult.
Access: Premises of the company and any other company she is placed with on a temporary basis, often in relation to a specific operation for the cult.

Tertiary Path: Origin Path: Survivor of an Asura Attack - Firearms, Occult, Integrity
Contact: Laverne MacDaniel, foster mother
Connections: Child services who frequently checked with her growing up, children
Access: Facilities where orphans of Asura attacks are protected.

Madhu has been aware of monsters and their dangers from an early age. Also she has been aware that there's not always a scion or other hero on hand to save everybody. After all, before the hero learns about the monster bad things have to happen to call the hero to the area. That is why she has been so devoted to the cult and its efforts to train guardians to place in vulnerable areas ahead of an attack.

Hero Level

Background: Madhu's been chosen as a scion of Durga for her competence in battle, but she has also discovered that the cult certainly does use manipulation and magic to recruit women to its cause. She was part of censuring one branch that had gone past what the cult felt acceptable, but she has found the line is very blurry. It bothers her greatly though she has been told that her worries show she cares but the fact that she persists in her duty despite her misgivings prove she has the potential to be a great hero.
