I said I’d make a Resident Evil Village oc and I’m a woman do my word!
Hattie Helmling was a woman diagnosed with a fatal illness. As a desperate last resort she traveled to the Romanian village knowing there was a biologist, Miranda, willing to take to unorthodox methods. After being promised a full recovery she agreed to have the cadou implanted in her. The operation, more of an amusing experiment than a lifesaving surgery to Miranda, ended up with Hattie dying and her body being discarded in the Romanian forest.
As her body and the cadou disintegrated it ended up fusing together with the forest floor and the mycelium of the fungi, regenerating Hatties body to a mushroomlike being!
Hattie Helmlings powers are that she can travel her consciousness through the mycelium and rematerialise wherever, making her good for gathering information discreetly. She can also produce different poisons and healing potions. Feeling betrayed by Miranda discarding her so carelessly she’s willing to help Ethan take her down by giving him said poison and healing potions in exchange for small side missions. She can also be asked for tips and is overall a pretty neutral character. She can’t be killed but poses no threat to anyone. Hattie is seen as a bit of the village hippie, caring about nature, lamenting her fate and her bitterness towards Mother Miranda. She signs a lot and is very soft spoken.
