Received after almost being used as a human catalyst to unleash a netherworld god. Turns out, she took the greater sum of the god’s divinity, and is impervious to harm, but not immortal or ageless, at this point. She is capable of performing miraculous feats merely by wishing strongly for it to happen, though figuring out what she can and can’t do is trial and error, but she would rather not try anything dangerous, or do anything at all in fact, because then she must be reminded of the traumatic events which first led to this situation.
Born Chae Kyung-min, her mother and father were formerly archaeologists and close colleagues of the Gilday antiquarian family, foremost experts on the vanished gods and their relics. In order to properly raise a baby, Kyung-min’s parents retired from expeditions and instead accepted an offer from the antiquarians’ heir, Tierney Gilday, to give joint lectures about the mystery and legacy of the unknown immortals. Their work lasted little more than a year, however, after both the Chaes and Tierney were caught in a car-bombing incident, apparently perpetrated by an underground organization of “Heretics.”
In the wake of the tragedy, the current family head of the Gildays took Kyung-min in to raise her in place of her parents, giving her the new identity of “Caelan Gilday” and relocating to America to give their daughter a more private life. In spite of the Gildays’ best efforts to protect Caelan, she became a new target for the Heretics, and as she grew older, began to display her parents’ adventurous spirit. It only took one mistake, one glance away at a time when she wandered away for the Heretics to spirit her off to be used as a bargaining chip.
The Heretics demanded a number of catalyst artifacts for a planned ritual to invoke an entity, “God L”, which would grant them unlimited wealth and the power to subjugate the whole world. In the midst of police negotiations, the summoning altar, an obsidian mirror, began reacting to the hostage in the same way it would a catalyst. On the lead Heretic’s orders, they attempted to sacrifice the Gilday child to God L, but ended up drawing out something unexpected. It was a monster, a strange hybrid being with a horned serpent's head, the body of a jaguar, and eagle talons for hind legs.
The creature was first assumed to be an avatar of God L until it defied the Heretics' control, going on a disastrous rampage before it escaped into the night. Police reported that the sole survivor of the incident had been the Gilday child, although numerous Heretic members were never recovered and possibly escaped. In a statement later released by Gilday family representatives, the deity released by the Heretics was identified not as God L, but an enemy of the gods, an entity of darkness, sealed away for good reason.
After that night, Caelan gained miraculous powers, able to manipulate her surroundings to unknown limits, conjuring the winds and turning the daytime sky to night on a whim. She could move the earth, influence emotions, creating or dispersing strife, call down bolts of divine retribution and even turn invisible, simply by wishing. Nothing could bring harm to her—physically, anyway. Due to the trauma of the summoning ritual, Caelan withdrew entirely from society, too shaken to even venture outside the house, let alone off Gilday property.
In the years to follow, Caelan gradually recovered with help and counseling, trying simply to forget the strange power she inherited because the scars of distrust and her terror still remained, often plaguing her with nightmares of human sacrifice, entrapment, and suffocation. Regardless of her condition, she wanted to take responsibility as the Gilday heir apparent, and so she focused herself on the study of artifacts, their history and their meaning. It would be her duty in the future to preserve and protect these treasures, and ensure they never fell into the wrong hands.
One day, Caelan receives an unexpected visitor, a stranger claiming she has something he owns and wishes returned. At first she is wary of even speaking to this person, let alone opening the door to see him face-to-face, but then the stranger announces himself as the imprisoned god unleashed into the world all those years ago.
