A short woman of Italian descent, Julia Antasia has an average appearance but knows how to command a room. Always elegant and always ruthless, she wears whatever is expected and she wears it well. Julia always seems to find a place to stand or sit where all must look up at her.
Every inch the daughter of a Roman patrician house, speculation places Julia’s political acumen, rhetoric skill, sense of duty, charisma, strong will, common sense and compassion as the reasons for her sire's attention and embrace, and she carries these qualities with her to this day. Known among the Ventrue as the Roman Relic, she was once a member of the Roman Eternal Senate but became disillusioned as they descended into madness as Rome's unopposed growth meant wealth and power for those who could grab it first. As the Roman Elders began to enforce their will on the younger through oaths of blood, equality for all Ventrue died, and with it, Julia turned her back on Rome and disappeared for centuries. When Julia resurfaced, the Western Roman Empire had fallen and Europe had come under the control of Charlemagne. The Ventrue of Rome had dispersed into feudal lords across Western Europe, enforcing their rule as monarchs of the night. Under her stewardship, ambitious young Ventrue who wished to fulfill her vision of a reborn Eternal Senate flocked to Frankfurt. Julia's proponents labelled themselves Antasians in her honor and espoused equality among Ventrue, looking to her as their protector and guide. Her most outspoken critics and opponents in Clan Ventrue were beholden to Hardestadt who ruled through his childer and their blood-sworn knights. Over the centuries she has gathered power, waiting for the time to restore the Eternal Senate to the world beyond Frankfurt.
Recently, it is believed that Julia was promoted to Ephor but that could just be speculation. Either way, she is consolidating power within the clan.
