"I don't know which one of you I like"


Overview

Like so many of her clan mates Alta is a Malkavian of two minds. One ancient, remembering the days of dominate, and a younger self who revels in the joys of dementation. Despite their best attempts neither personality has truly managed to kill the other. They're working on it.

Background

1680: Born to a wealthy family of merchants in Rennes, France

1704: The voices begin to talk and she is kept locked away at home

1706: Met Timothe Perier, who convinced her family that he could help her.

1711: After years of living in isolation and learning from Timothe she is embraced and introduced to the ways of the Camarilla.

1711 - 1860: Her sight helps guide her sire's machinations through the turbulent wars of Europe. The two grow wealthier through war investments.

1860: Timothe and Alta arrive in the United States.

1861 - 1865: Visions received during the American Civil War further damage her mind and she retreats into isolation.

1900 - 1914: Leaves isolation to fight for the Camarilla during the Sabbat civil war.

1997: The return of dementation shatters Alta's mind. A new dominant personality, younger and in the throes of dementation, subsumes the elder seer. Timothe Perier dies.

1997 - 2015: Enamored with modern technology, the new Alta gives up the safety and comfort of life at court and takes to travelling around the United States.

2016: Alta arrives in Texas, curiosity about the plight of the southern holdings of the Camarilla pinning her in place. With the growing dominance of the demented personality the elder personality is silenced.
