Publicly known

Costanza is a member of the House Silva, a line of Magisters that have always been Camarilla and are extremely Camarilla loyal. As expected of her blood, she is regal and elegant in her mannerisms, and prefers a more refined way of doing things. She usually can be seen ingratiating herself into a Camarilla court, but has the patience to take her time when doing so and understand the intricacies of the social and political dynamics. She is known for her integration of prominent figures into Society after they have joined the Camarilla.

Just enough spice to whet my pallet, and an indulgence I find quite enjoyable." - Sergio Giovanni

  • "Oh that Costanza is so fancy. She has her hankies and those fashionable beads. She reminds me of my grand daughter, Samantha. She was regal, too. Got spurned by the boys. Granted, she was six; but that's neither here nor there. And she was gracious enough to talk to me."-Mabel Ruby

  • "Please don't suppose that we're engaging in this conversation so that you can attempt to manipulate me for information about my Grandsire. Just who did you imagine taught me the finer points of conversing? We're playing a game, you and I...but we aren't players. I am a piece in her hand and you...are a tiresome bore, unfit even to be removed from play. Do run along to the hand that moves you, before I do it anyway." - Irvine

  • "We fought together in 'civilized' political arenas, we have battled back-to-back at our most feral. She, her family, and The Beloved have an understanding that took centuries to cultivate.

  • "From what I have seen The Magisters do, there is a very good reason to fear the darkness and the Abyss often associated with it. In that same vein, a Lady such as Elder Constanza deserves even more consideration. Not just because of what she can do by her blood, but more importantly, because she's a Lady, and they can create far more damage with a look and kind words than a solid punch to the gut." - Zack Snyder

  • "Costanza was shaped into the darkness, and in that darkness...those shadows are capable of unspeakable things. They are her grief and dust and bitter longings. It is always best to remain in her light." - Constance Fournier

  • "'Darkness had no need of aid from them— She was the Universe.' These words represent my thoughts about Costanza Rodriguez."Angelo

  • "The shadows cling to her like jealous lovers, but when she gazes upon you with those fiery Spanish eyes, the shadows are as drapes before the spotlight of her radiance." Earl Stedman Harrington

  • "I had heard of Lady Costanza through a number of channels, and was eager to meet her face to face. Upon meeting her I noticed that first, she is a Lady, that much is certain. Second, contrast that with the command she can wield in a room, and it further shows there's a leader and warrior under that elegance. Third, I would not want to be one to be the subject of her ire. I can say that everything I heard...was true." Bernard Green

Why is it every one of these shadow wielding fucks that I have ever met thinks they are the best thing that happened to whoever they meet?.. I just don't understands it..." Enzo Putanesca

  • "I have learned a great deal from her, I confess. It's probably best not to elaborate exactly what I have learned from her, though." Scarlett Thorne
