Lineage

Notable Traits:

  • She constantly has to ask others to repeat themselves. She should really get a hearing aide.
  • Her property, Gareth, is never far from her side. She treats him as one of her prized possessions, the pinnacle of excellence for a ghoul.

Background:

All of this information is OOC until learned IC.

  • She's the University librarian of Case Western Reserve University. She owes her new job to her connections with Percival Berkshire. She's a rather private person.
  • Type-A personality, driven, and motivated. Peel back the layers of the onion, however, and you may find a more intriguing character.
  • Went through a plethora of abuse before and after her embrace. Has a tendency to lock it away tight.
  • Was a research assistant for a certain Brujah Scholar throughout the 1990's into the 2000's.
  • Seen as somewhat of a prodigy when it comes to picking up and learning about Kindred society. So much so, that she's become an ancilla. But there's still whispers about her because of the age of her sire and why she's superseded her in station.

Known Associates

Rumors

  • A certain Brujah elder, Nicholas Ewing,finds her to be the first useful Tremere he's known.
  • Her hunger for knowledge and information is even more insatiable than most Nosferatu. You might even want to go for her for information before you ask a Nosferatu.
  • Her skill set is more diverse than the run of the mill Tremere.
  • Though she's a meek librarian, she breaks every stereotype and is the first on the scene to defend the Camarilla.
  • She's thinking about changing her name to avoid being made fun of. She was born when All My Children was created.
  • She may have a staking and boxing fetish. Especially when it comes to Arthur "Anon" Campori.
  • She really has a strong desire to be friends with Christopher Maurice. Wants to organize a book club with him. He refused. She thinks he's a hypocrite now as a golconda seeker who makes judgements against kindred without getting to know them.
  • The only person that can make her relax is Zoe De Medici. That may have changed recently, though.
  • Was she really embraced just recently or is she much older than she claims, her actions and abilities might lead you to believe that latter.
  • She's actually the childe of Genesis, hence why she's a lot older than she's giving on.
  • Was the motivating force behind the movement for 24/7 university libraries. A campus hero to the late night crammer.
  • Does she really have kinky sex with her graduate assistant in the stacks, or is that just a campus myth.
  • Was she really supposed to be a Brujah?
  • If it weren't for a specific person, she would still be in the long sleep.
  • Seen recently with a huge ruby on her finger. Is it from that mousy toreador?
  • Is the real Tremere in charge in Cleveland.
  • Really, really, obsessed with France.
  • Unknowingly insulted a Ventrue Prince while at the gathering in Nashville.
  • One of her biggest goals is to eliminate the prevailing Tremere hatred in Cleveland.
  • Her property is really well trained. He follows her around like a sick puppy. He got whipped after pissing off Ulfric the Seer, the Nosferatu primogen, for being around while Ulfric was talking to Erica.
  • She trains and breeds ghouls using genetic engineering. She's a kindred Darwin. Or perhaps, she just has a good science mentor.
  • Is a member of Goring's Gamble by the recommendation of Elder Torquil.
  • Was almost killed by Goodman Goring for challenging him over a philosophical matter about how she fights for the righteous causes over gold.

Character Inspirations

"When I was young I had such a vision of myself. I dreamed I'd be someone to be reckoned with, you know, in the world. But one learns one's scale. I've such a dread of ending my days alone. But recently, I've allowed myself to think that I may not be. Am I wrong?"
  • "Erica Kane" played by Susan Lucci in All My Children---For namesake and as an antithesis.
"Why on earth would I bear my scars to you?"
"[W]here was Providence? Perhaps, like that other god of whom the ironical Tishbite spoke, he was talking, or he was pursuing, or he was in a journey, or peradventure he was sleeping and was not to be awaked."
