31 Nights of Halloween: Jenny Balefire for Shadow of the Demon Lord

"Git to bed and say yer prayers or Jenny Balefire will come knockin' at yer window!"

Jennifer Bolliver had just turned seventeen, when Enoch Wilcox, a respected Elder of the Village of Proper and the owner of the Absolom Vineyard, made an inappropriate proposition to her that no married  man with a son only two years her junior should make.  Jenny's response was to slap Enoch and leave three scratch marks across his face.  Enoch's response was to accuse her of witchcraft and get the village to lynch her.

Unfortunately for the Village of Proper, young Jenny truly was a witch fully devoted to and corrupted by the Demon Lord himself. Her murder was the last bit of a terrible ritual that allows her to bedevil this world from the grave.
