Her vampirism has always been a curse. At age ten, her parents died by her hand when she was newly turned, and as a teenager she saw herself as a bloodbeast. She was lost and on the run until the age of thirteen when the owner of the Haven of Vampyres, Orion, showed her a new life as a bounty hunter. She had then spent her whole life as a target for the monsters who call themselves normal people. It had always been the same - fight or flight. She was no stranger to blood and hard times where death was never far away, so life as a search and destroy agent suited her perfectly.
Life as a Sheffield ally gave her purpose, focus and a role in society. Her credentials gave her some protection from bigotry. However, even among Vampires she was considered an outcast. As to human-Vampire conflicts, she refuses to take a side. She considers herself neither good nor evil. All in all, she is an outsider and an anti-hero. Since many men are mortal, and she is not, she would have loved ones in various time eras.
Throughout her life she has been hated, feared, shunned, spat upon, hunted, abused, degraded, and very nearly murdered. Thus, she has no troubles letting it loose onto guilty Humans (or criminal Vampires), a little payback for what they have done to her. Still, she is not that dark, and has scruples about her actions and tries to balance her act. She guns down the wanted without hesitation, and sometimes eats the last one in the gang, but will not hurt innocents. In general, as to her feeding, which has to be done for the sake of survival, she usually hunts down criminals, and slightly prolongs the hunt, as a little guilty pleasure, because she likes the taste of adrenaline in the blood.
Among the criminal underworld she’s known and feared as a ruthlessly efficient law-enforcement ally. Others fear her because she is a blood-sucking bounty hunter. But becoming a famous Sheffeld ally has also its drawbacks - she regularly has a price on her head and finds herself hunted down by criminals wherever she goes. Still, she is used to it, and constantly stays on the move. However, if that becomes too tedious, she goes straight to the source and ends the threat personally. Or she gathers all of her would-be assassins in one place and deals with them all in one blow according to her own rules.
She finds it rather amusing that most people believe her possessing all the traditional vulnerabilities of supernatural vampires. In reality, neither crosses nor sunlight can damage her, and she just loves garlic. In her spare time she likes to read.
She gets extra hungry, having a slow pulse like thunder throbbing and craving in her throat, during full moon. The sweet smell of fear, the sharp surge of hope and the sour stench of terror gets her even hungrier. However, she is very strong-willed and never loses it to the hunger, although there is a problem with a slowly growing thirst over time. When she drinks, she prefers the blood either of those she likes or of her worst enemies.
Despite her rather bizarre life, she has a strong spirit and a healthy outlook on life. In future times, when she was worshipped, she still didn’t take herself very seriously and refused to be worshipped. She would not be a figurehead or a cause, or an excuse to kill. Because of all of this, she feels compelled to stop the Vampire-Human war brewing. A free spirit, she would at all times run her own race and do what she deemed right.
