Background:

Kiersten Patterson was a normal young woman, struggling to make ends meet, when she got an unusual new neighbor. This neighbor was eventually revealed to be the rejuvenated spirit of a witch — and when Kiersten got too close to the truth, she was targeted as the witch’s next victim. Thanks to the combined efforts of her uncle (the town sheriff) and the Straw-Man, the witch was defeated. Exposure to the supernatural elements triggered something within Kiersten, however, and she later learned that she had a series of unusual abilities — she was now able to journey back and forth to Deadworld, where spirits go before moving on to their chosen afterlife, and she was also able to manipulate darkness. As Ephemera, she now tries to help souls that have become trapped on the mortal plane, either through their ignorance or by their attempts to avoid their proper fate. She doesn’t see herself as a hero — in fact, she’d rather avoid anything even remotely resembling fisticuffs — but she does derive some pleasure from helping spirits find their eternal reward.
