Vangie was a girl who wanted her friend back from Death.

Vangie, along with her friends Plath and Billy are "magic enthusiasts", who contacted the Cirqué des Nécrovores on their quest for knowledge. The young friends were ill prepared for the experience, and the Nécrovores toyed with them, killing Billy, before letting the girls go.

This prompted another quest from the girls to trap Death of the Endless and force her to bring Billy back, as they heard Roderick Burgess tried to do years before. To do this Plath contacted the merchant Ashaira, to buy the Magdalene Grimoire from him, but when he delivered the book, he asked for much more than the original offer. Because the girls only had enough to cover the original $10,000 he proposes take the money and sleep with Evangeline to cover what they didn't have. Plath tries to threaten him to lower the price but Vangie agrees to go along with him for Billy's sake. Within the grimoire was a sigil of death, an Ankh, and with that Plath new that she could do her bidding. Ashaira had the item for another customer, but he had to leave the sigil and the grimoire, or Plath's subordinate, Siobhan would had shoot him with a shotgun.[1]

The sigil made changes on Plath, and Vangie noticed it. She tried to reason with her lover, to no avail, and saw how she went more and more ruthless in her actions, shooting Eblis O'Shaughnessy to prevent him from taking the sigil. Vangie, while trying to make sense of everything, made contact with Death, who sent Billy to speak, and Vangie accepted to be the vessel of Death to stop the madness of Plath. This resulted with Vangie confronting the Cirque de Necrovores, and the ultimate Death of Plath.[2]

Vangie, alone and with guilt, turned to Echo, who was also suffering from what Corinthian was doing in her nightmares. The toll was too much for Echo, and she died. Vangie at the limits of her sanity, attempted suicide, instead of trying to live alone after loosing Billy, Plath, and now Echo.[3]

Echo, who was dead, but her essence survived as a dream, was able to stop the hemorrhage and call paramedics who saved Vangie's life. Once in the hospital, in coma, the Corintian tried to attack her and her sister, Maddy, who went there to help her recover. Maddy managed to stop the Corinthian, and without noticing, her stone made Vangie recover from her coma, and both shared a brief moment of happiness.[4]

Vangie accompanied her sister's search for Nuala, even when she did not understand why was Maddy even trying. They both crashed in the department of Victor, a friend of Vangie, who by chance also was a workmate of Nuala.[5] Vangie stayed in the waking world with Victor, oblivious to what her sister was doing in the Dreaming.

After Maddy came back, they keep crashing with Victor. Vangie, who still has not recovered in spirit for her losses, has found in the building a supplier of drugs, and consumes them whenever she can. Her sister tries to stop her self-destructive behaviour, to no avail. It is unknown if Vangie managed to overcome her personal ordeal, but Maddy promised to be the support that she needed.[6]

Powers

  • Occultism: She learned, while observing Plath and Billy, enough to know that certain items, such as the Magdalene Grimoire, has power.

Weaknesses

  • Vangie is bisexual. She has had relationships with both men and women.
