Petra appears to be a young woman in her late teens, with Mediterranean features and slate blue eyes. Her dress is always pragmatic and modest, though richly detailed and refined. Petra can often be found wearing jewelry that appears old and exotic.
Reserved, but confident and well-spoken. Her words and posture carry a natural air of command. Petra smiles often, though it seldom shows in her eyes. She has more than once been mistaken for a Ventrue, although she takes no offense at this.
Petra is known as an accomplished world traveler, having resided in diverse Camarilla courts near and far. Drawn particularly to the Far East, Petra has also spent prolonged periods in France, the Low Countries, and Russia, with allies from many cultures and walks of life. Her travels have enabled her to understand and respect vastly different perspectives than her own, which is a personal point of pride for the accomplished elder.
Petra will be the first to admit she herself is no master of art, but has a keen ear for music and is a proud patron of the Arts.
It is public knowledge that Petra is actually the genetic descendant of venerated Ventrue Clanhead Adrienne Maxwell, and the two have an amicable relationship.
Petra is seldom far from her ally and closest friend, the formidable Rene Le Salle. Although the exact nature of their relationship is everyone's (frequent) guess, it is known they have traveled together for the past 200 years.
Petra is the known protege of the esteemed Morgaine de St. Clair of House Von Daun, having served as Morgaine's lady-in-waiting as a neonate. Their relationship is ever one of mentor and pupil, though quite friendly.
Elmira Pacetti of Fort Myers, FL is Petra's great-great-grandchilde, a young Rose of ability and ambition.
Petra's favorite childe met final death during a riot in Asia. Petra never stopped mourning his loss and seldom speaks his name.
Quotes “Feeling at peace, however fragilely, made it easy to slip into the visionary end of the dark-sight. The rose shadows said that they loved the sun, but that they also loved the dark, where their roots grew through the lightless mystery of the earth. The roses said: You do not have to choose." - Salvador Noventa
“I first met the Rich Prince in Las Vegas at the Grand Gala hosted there. I found her charming, beautiful certainly, and above all capable. Her wealth takes many forms, and I encourage you not to underestimate the considerable resources at her disposal." -- Rafael Hernandez
"Marvelous and merciless, exquisite and noble, when she moves there is something ominous and stately in her deliberate progress. Such a creature exists to be Sovereign." -- Tristan
“I will never forget the moment I first laid eyes on Lady Petra. It was not yet midnight, and the moon hung low over Phnom Pehn. She addressed her court, wearing the finest gold, the most handsome silks; her subjects touching their heads to the ground as she passed. Never before had I considered Kindred to be Divine. But seeing Prince Petra bathed in moonlight, walking gracefully beside the reflecting pools of the Royal Palace... I thought, 'if she is not a Goddess, she is certainly Heaven come to Earth.'" -- Rene LeSalle
