Thank you so much for the reply. I find it to be very interesting, and it makes sense to me.
I do know that her colleagues are in high level political and administrative positions that they do not belong in. From what I have witnessed, they go to a woman who is able to secure positions for them using some sort of magic, whether it is spell casting, or voodoo, I am unsure. I do know that they do get the upper hand, and seem to be protected from "wrongdoing". They continue to raise to the top, but the funny thing is they are always on the run, and constantly living a life that is in constant damage control mode. Maybe that's the downside of using magic for evil.
Surely there are negative entities that would thrive on negative intentions, right?
