The vampires have this myth/legend/ about her:
The waerewolves believe in her too. Johnny wrote this song:
Hmmm. Those Dead above ground, diseases unfurled and Delivering justice sounds like of like the waerewolfs might be thinking ill of the vamps and interpreting this as if the Lustrata is going to be on their side in putting the vamps in their place.
So, now that I think about it, thanks to Jeffe and KAK, my whole series is based on a superstition, complicated by 1.) the varying theories about that belief and 2.) the character's own non-acceptance/degrees of acceptance of this belief.
So, Superstitions: Writing to a stereotype or tapping unmined gold?
I say that in making up your characters, their world and their destinies, what they believe in--if anything, and why, and how it impacts them and those around them, is absolutely like tapping unmined gold.
