Serena the Venture Bio

Post by Doe on Thu Apr 30, 2009 3:29 pm

Story: Born in the 1840's Victorian England, Serena was happy living with her parents and siblings in a country manor not far from the town of Cornwall. Her Father was the Lord of the manor and he was an honest and decent man, he used to run fundraisers to raise money for region. The family is from a long line fo Crusaders, her Great great great grand father was the last, he fought in the Ninth crusade under the banner of the Hospital. Her eldest brother David and younger brother Harold were very close to her and were a close knit family. Untill one dreadfull night, a fire broke out in the local town, many people were bunred and tortured in an occult like fashion. The people, blaming the Lord, gathered a lynch mob and headed for the manor grounds. The Father and brothers took up arms and tried to defend the manor, along with the few remaining guards, leaving just enough time for the women to escape, but they fell, killed brutally the oncoming wave of people. Serena and her mother were forced to flee.

One night, during a cold winter, her mother died of typhoid, whilst serena was only 19, she was forced to fend for herself, she took on jobs as a maid and as a cleaner, untill one night, whilst working in a tavern, she met a man by the name of Theodore Redgrave. He was a young but quite influential Ventrue, his sire was an elder, he took Serena in and Embraced her into the clan.

During the early years of the 1900's, a great hunt was called, in the Northern Provinces, stretching form Northumberland to the ends of Scotland. Werewolves, we breeding on mass and were causing havock, many Vampires and kine alike were slain. So Theodore summoned the Elders of many great clans, to form a movement against these ravaging werewolves, Ulf Hagar from the Highland Gangrel was one of the first to awnser the call, Sending some of his great warriors to aid in the struggle. This is where Serena met a young Gangrel male by the name of 'Garrett' a friendship that would last for many Generatoins. They fought together during the great hunt, and during the modern wars against the Sabbat in London, untill one night, Garrett up and left the country to start again elseware.

Serena has served for many generations in London as a close aid to her sire Theo (now known as) Bell.

Personality: Serena is not a typical typecast Ventrue, having been kindred for too many generations to have fallen into the same 'posh uppety toff' that the modern Ventrue suffer from. A typecast that she hates with a passion. She knows what the Ventrue can do in war and what they have in them, but struggles to knock any form of logic into their behaviour. Because of her lonliness as a child and as fledgeling during the troubling times of the Inquisition, she has a 'soft spot' for newely embraced Kinded, also those of the Caitiff and will on occasion become a type of mentor to them if she sees something within them worth building. Not the most pysically strong person, she can sometimes be lured into a bar room brawl, if she feels someone is offending her clan, which she can often walk away form the victor, a trait that has earned her much resect from young kindred and Cammarilla alike, however is something that perhaps, has stopped her being anymore than a 'typical young runt' in the eyes of the Cities elders

Appearance: Serena is an attractive woman, and about 5 '7 tall, her age is shown in her features, and she doesnt try to hide it, she is naturally a crimson red head, though she often dies it, as a fashion statement more than anything else, perhaps it is the Ventrue blood in her. She favours to stay mobile, She is almost always seen wearing a Long leather trenchcoat, beneath it a pair of custom Desert Eagle .50 handguns in dropleg holsters and a pair of knives in her sleeves. Her Pistols have slight modifications, including barrel compensators, rubber grips and doctor optics.


Gen: 10
Age: 200
Mentor: Theo Bell
Clan: Ventrue
Sect: Camarilla
Preffered weapon: various high calibre small arms.
Haven: West London Mansion

May 2009: Serena and her coterie managed to defeat an antideluvian Brujah from the line of Ujain, saving the world from some form of twisted hellish appocolypse. Upon orders from her Sire, Theo bell, she has decided it would be best to leave London for a time, untill things can be sorted out from within the cammarilla.

Serena, along with some followers, have decided to head over to Brazil, to aid in the war and help rebuild the camarilla there.

Quite interesting reading, Doe.
Only one comment: What did you mean by: "her age is shown in her features"? Usually vampires do not age, and their features do not change from the day they got embraced, meaning 19.

So, since she lived in Medieval Europe, she knows about riding, fencing, sewing. And since she was a lady of a manor, she is extremely ladylike. You could add that she has a soft spot for real gentlemen (most modern day men are jerks)

She enters in bar brawls, so did she learn boxing? Her three Disciplines will get her a big advantage.

Yes good point i need to edit this, when i first started the bio she was supposed to be much older, i then changed her age, thanks for noticing

So, since she lived in Medieval Europe, she knows about riding, fencing, sewing. And since she was a lady of a manor, she is extremely ladylike. You could add that she has a soft spot for real gentlemen (most modern day men are jerks)

I agree, i didnt want to go into much detail about fencing and riding as these are traits she hasnt used for many centuries. she preffers a firearm and a car these days!

She enters in bar brawls, so did she learn boxing? Her three Disciplines will get her a big advantage

She doesnt box no, i just wanted to make her sound alitlle more.....brjah like. Perhaps 'Brawl' is the wrong word, ill try to think of a re-structure to that part.

Oh don't worry about it, Doe.
The majority of the bio is finished. These minor tweaks will not really make much of a difference anyway. Take your time at fixing them.

May 2009: Having enough of the petty strugles of the Cammys in Brazil, Serena has decided to Leave the city, Letting the Prince sacrifice her own soldiers for the failing cause. ''What can one Kindred do against Phaser rifles anyway'' London is getting worse by the night, and her own Territory is more important to her than anything else.

So, she's heading back to London, due to a request from her sire Theo to continue her duties on the streets of the East End. Keeping watch of the territories from the Sabbat, and keeping mindless Hunters and Anarchs at bay .

And so it continues.

So she is a werewolf hunter? That's cool.
But I thought she was a non-violent/non-conforming Brujah.
Did she use Presence to take control of the Werewolves? (They are susceptible to high level Presence)

Nope, there was a great hunt, so there would have been many soldiers. She was simply just one of them.

No presence used, just fire and numbers Very Happy

September 2009: Serena an old flame and friend, aided by her partner and the remnants of Amsterdams Covenant have awaken Garrett from Torpor to aid in the battle with the Ancient Evil, most perish in the Battle but Serena and Garrett exit the rubble stricken city of Amsterdam to start anew somewhere else, perhaps to enter a long sleep together......untill another time.
