At the start of chronicle, the Pilgrim is an experienced Crusader, strongly rooted in her Albigensian faith and very interested in increasing role her in the Sabbat. Her sense of style is also influenced by the abject poverty that she grew up in in her mortal life. Although she owns some street clothes and business attire to help her be inconspicuous when the time calls for it, Delilah’s fashion ranges from country girl to clubber to simply outlandish. She favors heavy ornamentation and very bright colors in her nightly attire, especially red, neon pink, gold, and black, which are conspicuous “warning colors” of predators in the wild, as well as signs of wealth, confidence, blood and power in the minds of vampires and mortals.

The Pilgrim only has a few serpentine features at the beginning of chronicle. The first bestial transformation she underwent occurred at her first hunger frenzy: scales down her back. Her second bestial trait was acquired through an anger frenzy fighting Nosferatu in Prague: there, the dry skin on her cheekbones below her eyes and on her knuckles flaked off and gave way to copperhead scales.
