Ilythia was the youngest and only female child of her Sire. Raised from birth to be the perfect Lady, perfect ghoul, and then the perfect devoted and loyal childe. For the first several hundred years of her life she was never far from her Sire, the proverbial leash kept short and his attention sharply, jealousy on her. It was not until the first Anarch revolt that Ilythia stepped into the spot light of the Crusader bloodline. As her Sire voiced his intent to side with the Camarilla his older childer rebelled against him, the infighting of the House was said to be brutal and devastating ending in final death of Ilythia's older broodmates. A demise she openly admits to facilitating. Ilythia continued to be seen at her Sire's side until a decade later amid rumors of her Sire's insanity and paranoia another devastating battle swept through the House and in one blood filled night consumed in flames the House of Elder Aquila Livius crumbled.

From the ashes Ilythia arouse grief stricken, changed, brutal, determined, and forever wrapped in auras of icy cold and dread. The House was re-named Du Val with Ilythia firmly holding it's reigns as she set her sons, ghouls, and armys to work securing the supremacy of Clan Ventrue and the Camarilla. Any mention of her Sire's name stricken from the House's histories and members forbiden to speak his name in her presance. Ilythia joined the Knights of Blood and has been a member since their founding. Through the years Ilythia has been adamant about maintaining a neutral balance within the Clan, her House supporting and working with the other Houses for the betterment of the Clan. The Du Val's embrace the fact that they are of the Crusader bloodline and enjoy the social 'stigma' that comes with it. More than happy to get their hands dirty so that the 'bluebloods' don't have to.

It is also a known fact that Ilythia was present at both the Treaty of Tyre in 1496 and The Promise in 1528.

Early in the 1700s a darker change was seen in Ilythia, the whispered rumors of depravity and sadism became more prominent, and by the early 1800s it was clear that the Matron of House Du Val was loosing the battle to keep herself away from wassail. In 1824 Ilythia's vassal Cassamir was able to talk her into entering torpor in order to rest and heal her weary soul, where she has remained until January 2017.

No one is exactly sure what has finally been deemed important enough for her House to implore her to rise from torpor but already the Elder Crusader is not wasting time setting her House to task. The Elder herself is said to have entered an area previously obliterated of supernatural pressance by Hunters with a large contingent of her bloodline.

Said to Tavish Du Val by Ilythia.
