The "quality of mercy" and being twice blest and all. Of course, that one should be more careful with her blessings. Garvin McCarthy

|* "My ersatz Childe, a better architect I do not know." Diego Vega
|* "I witnessed her shed blood to assist an Elder Brujah from frenzying. She has my full respect." Asher Meier
|* "There are Elders I hoped to work for and then there are Elders I am blessed to have their company.
