"...A woman about whom
the testimony of inspired poets
has become univocal and unanimous
as had the ill omen of her name,
which has become a reminder of misfortunes."
– "Encomium of Helen" Gorgias


If fortune favors the benevolent, then June is unliving proof.

Originally homeless, embraced by an unknown Malkavian, and barely noticed by the city's Kindred for a hundred years, June serves as archon to Her Grace, Marissa Cole. Her meteoric rise from nobody to primogen, to harpy, to prince, and now archon, deserves credit, but to what or whom, no one is sure. The one act that put her on the map was her harpy report for the 2013 Grotesquerie and she's been politically busy ever since. June lives in San Francisco, California, but spends the majority of her time traveling.

June was known for her effervescent warmth, compassion, and altruistic outlook on existence. While still all these things, her eyes no longer brighten with her smile, a smile that no longer seems sincere.

This Doll's Story

June showed up in Los Angeles some time in 1920. She was first spotted roaming the orphanages, helping care for children left alone by the Great War and the influenza epidemic. A year later she worked among brothels on Pound Cake Hill, helping prostitutes either escape or survive their profession. In fact, her entire tenure in Los Angeles centered around positive social work.

In 2012 June finally started coming around Kindred society. Usually she dropped in when the prince required the presence of all Los Angeles residents, and then she disappeared again, out into the dangerous parts of the city. Some called her a hipster by accident––June's clothes never matched and were always a decade behind. She roamed Silver Lake and Echo Park. And those glasses… Truth was June lived on the streets and her clothes came from the church donation piles. Her ragamuffin look, spot on hipster, was authentic.

The homeless, the hookers, the addicts all know June. She brings them food and medicine, and it's not hard to find a way into her good graces by spending time ministering to the less fortunate.

Once seemingly outdated and stuck in the 1920s, June has recently shown a keen interest in how the world changed since her embrace. With the help of her assistant Krishna, the former prince has picked up modern knowledge and skills. But where her pristine and poised new look comes from, one can only guess. Despite all her updates, June's memory prior to 1920 hasn't returned.

Chewing Gum: slang for double talk, ambiguous words

  • Every night June searches the streets of Los Angeles, following the wails of a baby she can never seem to find.
  • June pretends to suffer from amnesia, so no one will look too closely at how her background doesn't quite line up.
  • June is a pawn of the Elders. An excellent pawn who knows her place.
  • Whenever upset or scared, June starts cutting into herself.
  • Many, many Kindred call June a "friend." But she knows better than to talk about those types of Kindred.
  • Once a nun, June was cruelly Embraced in order to ruin her faith in God.
  • Some call her Matilda, including her sire.
  • June knows half of you twice as well as you would like, and likes you twice as well as you deserve.
  • The former Harpy of LA is actually very fond of anarchs, and not fond of prissy princes.
  • Murdering a prince of the Camarilla to take his territory? She didn't even blink when she did it.
  • Archon was not a promotion, it is indentured servitude for her wickedness.

Swell Sayings

  • "She accidentally had her hard drive setting on RAID when she only had one drive connected, LOL! I asked her if she wanted me to upgrade her hard drive for her, but she slapped me. Fine, I'm not the one without a solid state drive. What is this, the 1800's or something!?" - Melvin

Once they're in pieces, they get put back together using gold to fill in the cracks. They become more durable, their marks adding to their strength. I sense June is the same way. Every time she's shattered, she's reformed into something more. It would be a beautiful process to watch." Angelo
  • "I was told she was super nice, and she is. She's a nice lady. With a nice dress. And a nice voice. And a nice smile. And a nice demeanor. And she smells nice.

  • "One long-vanished night, I helped her pin on a magnificent hat, and called her a princess. I'd met her only moments before, and already I knew enough to delight me. I've only grown more delighted since then. The trouble is, I'm delighted by different things than most people." -- Benedict Verren
  • "June is ever th'innocent flower. She appears sweet and kind, all things that Kindred typically are not. And in her, these do not seem to be pretensions, but truths. But we forget at our peril that June is a scion of her clan and an Archon. One does not become an Archon by only being the flower." -- Izar San Martin
