Her voice can catch anyone's attention who isn't focused soley on one thing. Normal humans are more affected. It's what got her out of her family. Naturally, when she talks its like the sound of bells..or something sweet. But when she wants it to be, it can be seductively poisonous. Like tainted honey.
When angered or scared, her body produces a poison that seeps through her fingertips and her lips. She was used by The Family to punish those who got out of line. Because she is physically attractive, she could use that power to kill instantly, or paralyze..it depends on the exposure. The poison attacks the nerves causing ones nervous system to shut down an organ at a time..or body part at a time.
She can scream at a pitch loud enough to shatter glass and break apart metal. When focused on an object she can do much damage with nothing but her voice.
Using any of her powers causes a major drain on her energy and mental process. While wickedly smart and witty, she can have her moments of not-so pleasantness when she uses an ability too much.
With the poison, it does have a limit. She can only use so much before her body has to make more. And to do that, there are certain foods in which she must eat to get the right amounts of proteins.
Raised with a silver spoon in her mouth, Merrick lived the life of Riley. Anything she wanted, she got..anyone got in her way, they would be gone within 24 hours. Such is life for the only daughter of an Italian mob boss.
Born and raised in Italy, Merrick is bi-lingual in italian and english as is much of her family. With three brothers to protect her, she was the baby..and the heir to the name. And to the business.
The only problem..
She wanted out.
She'd seen enough killing and enough lies for her entire life, so she thought up a hairbrained scheme to get herself out without being killed. Because since the beginning, that was what the only way was. Death.
With Ione's help, she managed to poison her parents due to their heavy drinking and drug binges, it wasn't too difficult. Unfortuneately, she had to have no witnesses and with a kiss..she killed the only brother that ever cared about her. It broke her heart.
Ever since she fled Italy, she's been living with one glance over her shoulder. Who knew when someone would find wind of the infamous Soprano daughter. It was one of the reasons she adopted the nickname Sacrifice.
Making the ultamate sacrifice meant that she put behind her life and started a new one. She made sure she covered her tracks and Merrick was no more. At least until she got to America...
And so it began..
