Clan: Carmina has declared herself clanless, only a select few know her actual clan.


Carmina has always been a member of the Anarch Movement, even as a ghoul, and is known to be a member of the Free Militia. In the past she traveled frequently with the gang she was part of, originally formed by her Sire, who was one of the original handful of Anarchs who founded and expanded the Free Militia. Her role often included being the 'face' for the Militia when entering a Camarilla or IA controlled area, if the Militia needed access or to travel through. When not being the public diplomat, she was more often part of quick strike teams, rescue operations or intervention missions to recover Anarchs lost or taken by the Sabbat or worse.

Her relations with her Sire were cold at best, so upon his death, she broke away from the group and went solo for some time, visiting Anarch holdings or providing escorts to traveling Anarchs. Occasionally she would do work as a bodyguard or diplomat for unaligned Kindred, especially the Caitiff.

Eventually she was asked to represent the Anarch Movement at an unusual 'debate' being held in Seattle, upon Elysium, in which the merits and misconceptions of both Sects would be debated. The Tower found itself dealing with a growing discontent among it's citizens and peers after events including the defection of the Brujah Justicar to the Anarch Movement, and Seattle had felt that impact almost directly due to the high number of Brujah in it's domain. After the debate, she chose to stay and offer aid to the local Anarchs who were dealing with an internecine conflict, involving their own leaders, rivals and outside influences. The false Baron fell and fled, but not before most of the resident Anarchs were dead or had also chosen to depart; during this time one local Brujah defected to the Movement and several other Anarchs arrived for various reasons or to also try to help the Movement keep it's holdings before a shaking Tower could try and seize 'vacated' lands. It was quickly followed by the departure, en mass, of a powerful coterie of local Brujah including the Prince; the sudden increase in territory that resulted meant even if Carmina had other plans or goals the Movement clearly would need experienced members to build on the new foundations being laid on the rubble of a failed Barony.

As of September 2019, Free Seattle has dissolved and Carmina has relocated to Portland, OR for now.
