Deni

From Dark City

Introduction
"We are monsters, yes, but we are defined by the struggle to retain sanity and ethics in the face of the slavering madness in our hearts. To ignore the Man is no less foolish than to ignore the Beast, no matter how some might romanticize the latter as being more honest. Both must be tamed and brought to heel."
-Deni, shortly before fleeing Paris

Stats: 5'9, 145 pounds

Description: Even after having discarded her old shape, Deni's eyes lack any of the kindness that supposedly comes with age and wisdom. Her appearance is rather plain, though the bit of sunburn on her face is unusual for a Kindred, and she takes pains to wear clothing that won't stand out. She is cold, with a generally flat affect, and her eyes tend to linger on any area that might cause a particularly grievous injury if struck. Speaks with a faint Parisian accent.

Personality: Were it not a meaningless pop-culture term, many might describe Deni as at least mildly psychopathic. This, of course, doesn't stand out at all within the safehouses of the Ordo Dracul, but can be off-putting to encounter in public. Beneath the outer layers of frigidity and paranoia is the sort of maddened zeal that might be expected from a religious fanatic rather than a dispassionate scholar. Beneath that, who knows?

RP Hooks
  • Wait, isn't she- (Ordo Dracul): In Paris, Deni was known as an up and coming scholar. Then, it is said, she was lured into heresy by her Sire, who she betrayed to the Ordo before fleeing to NYC. She is a Nest Guardian, and might have lore or rituals of interest to other members of the Ordo Dracul.
  • A very private practice (Medical): Rosalyn, Deni's newly forged mortal identity, is apparently a general practitioner with a private practice. Of course, nobody has actually heard of her before now, but the medical field is broad enough to contain a few relative unknowns and she seems entirely competent at her job. Rumor has it that she's unlikely to ask awkward questions if you need patching up.
  • Redemption Consultations (Kindred): Rumors as to the exact nature of Deni's heretical learning swirl around her, but there is perhaps a hint in the occasional offer of certain services to those who've grown dangerously close to falling to the Beast. Those with little left of their Humanity appear to be an interest of hers, and she claims to have some means of aiding them.
  • Scholar of Humanity (General): Despite being a vampire and quite clearly ill-suited to most social situations, she can be found lurking around the fringes of polite society. Deni seems to take an interest in those with either particularly strong or lax principles.
  • She Who Lives (Kindred): To change one's face for the sake of the Masquerade isn't an entirely unknown precaution, given the prevalence of Carthian medical techniques, but Deni seems far altered even for that. As well, she smells more of fresh meat than blood, and more of cleaning agents than perfume. Some degree of eccentricity is to be expected from the Defiant, of course, but Deni is odd even for one of them.
  • Lorilie Days is Dead: Perhaps you knew the reclusive dead-eyed nurse, once, but she's gone now. There was a car crash, apparently.
