whitney mayer ♔ 25 ♔ shapeshifter ♔ lana parrilla
whitney mayer accidentally ticked off lilith, resulting in the demon slaughtering half her family back when her own curse hadn’t been triggered. she knew she had the shapeshifter gene, and she knew that she had to be bit by a hell hound for it to activate and kill someone after. it all happened so fast – one moment, she was happy, the next, her family was being murdered because whitney planned to have one of her friends exorcised. lilith got word of these plans and punished the girl by having half her family killed. whitney had been enraged at that point, she wasn’t thinking clearly. the intense grief she felt was consuming her to the point where she just didn’t care anymore – the only ones she still had left were her grandparents and her brother, the others were gone for good. one night, whitney decided to go out and party, get entirely drunk and forget about her problems. it didn’t go well however… the demon that possessed her friend was there, and she was angering the girl so much that it got to a physical brawl. the bouncers tried to pry whitney off the demon, but she would have none of it. it took 2 of them to get her off, but her anger was out of control – so much, that she ended up beating one of the bouncers to death, thus activating her curse. she has to turn during every full moon now and she knows it, as well as the fact that she has to deal with having killed someone. whitney’s been living a closed off life ever since. she’s angry at the world, and can barely suppress her killing urges, all because she’s lost her family.
