Slayer, The Chosen One: She alone wields the strength and skill to stand against the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness.
"Looks like a party! Guess I didn't get a proper invite - hope you don't mind that I dropped in." - Layla Smith
Layla Smith is The Slayer, a once-in-a-generation prodigy at combat, trained and relatively proficient at facing the forces of darkness. She transferred to St. Thom Huell after her parents moved for business from the United States to the United Kingdom, dumping her at a boarding school. Despite a reluctant start, she started to lead a group of fellow students against the monsters in the proximity of the school.
Not unaccustomed to trouble, both mundane and mystical, she spends her days pursuing her personal academic interest of of how to duck classes and dodge teachers, an easy feat considering what she faces at night.
By night she somewhat reluctantly faces down the forces of darkness, dealing with things that are most definitely not rabbits and gardening tools...
With only four months' experience as the Slayer (as of the start of the school year), she has has her hands full with moving to a new country as well as dealing with the local evils, but this time she has a few people who she may almost be able to call friends.
