Wrapped in a black shroud as if prepared for interment, her face contorted with religious ecstasy, the vampire is an unearthly sight. Although her eternally youthful body is solid flesh and bone, her mind is focused only fitfully on the present moment. At other times, she is like a prophetess of old, her gaze drawn into another world.
Her skin is deathly pale, and even without her eerie garb it would be easy to tell that there was something wrong with her. She appears to be unwilling or unable to blend into mortal society in the manner of more subtle vampires. Consequently, she is virtually never seen among the common population. Folk tales have sprung in the wake of her rare appearances.
The vampire's mortal name is lost to history. She calls herself the Sister of Cold Nights, but if the title suggests that she was once a nun, she is not forthcoming with the information. Her blood is that of the Cappadocians, the Clan of Death. Although respected in the society of the night for her learning, she is known to be afflicted with seizures that leave her delirious for long stretches of time.
Her garment is redolent of funeral incense. The trimming of her shroud is embroidered with words of the Ash Wednesday liturgy: "Remember, Man, that you are dust and unto dust you shall return."
