The inspiration for my styling is based on medieval European medicines and magic during the Middle Ages. Sorcery, potions, and punishment during these dark times have always fascinated me. Crows or ravens were believed to be symbols of bad luck and death.
My character is a French noblewoman who lived in the late 16th Century and became widowed while still in her early 20’s. She was fascinated by all forms of sorcery and practiced these dark arts in secrecy for several years.
The Marchioness’ secret was discovered when her much-older lover, a wealthy landowner, fell ill. She had told him she would create a potion to help cure him when in fact she concocted a poison to kill him. Inevitably, the old man passed away.
The townsfolk were devastated because the wealthy landowner was a generous employer, and now they had no money for food, clothing or shelter. They demanded the curia regis punish the Marchioness for her black magic, and subsequently she was prosecuted then sentenced to death–burned at the stake.
As the tongues of flames licked at her feet then crawled upwards to consume her body, she began to transform into a Crow. She wailed and cawed to her murder of crows to pluck the spirit from within her, until she died.
