"To have a solid foundation of skepticism, -that is to say, the faculty of changing at any moment, of turning back, of facing successively the metamorphoses of life." -- Rémy de Gourmont
Mariposa is a Koldunic Sorceress and Zhupan that draws inspiration from insects to achieve metamorphosis. After dedicating herself to her Path, a kaleidoscope of butterflies flock to her everywhere she goes. She has worked since the 1800s as a diplomat in inter-sect conflict and is a staunch supporter of the Chicago Blood Accords. Throughout clan and sect she is known as a spiritualist and social butterfly, though since the Nights of Turmoil her demeanor has become a bit more serious and she is focused on the survival of the Sabbat. It is no secret that Mariposa diablerized her true sire but their identity remains unknown, and instead she claims her surrogate and closest House-mate, Zână, as her sire. Her unlife-long affair with Darius Escarra ended abruptly with his death, and caused many changes for The Butterfly. She left the only faction she'd ever known, the Orthodoxy, to join her sire and start anew in the Order of Saint Blaise.
"La Mariposa is delicate in that she has crafted herself with intricate quality. Do not mistake this for frailty, for she is far stronger than she first appears." - Zână
"Beautiful." - Ansel
"She disassembles herself so that she can take on a fresh form, to explore it's potentials and limitations. It is the most beautiful thing that a being can do." - Maeve
"Blinded by propaganda from a holy curiosity of which she so clearly yearns, Mariposa is a tragic example of what happens to great minds within the Sabbat. I hope I helped loosen her shackles, but that is likely vanity. My own curiosity has me obsessed with learning what she now thinks of the lies she was told. Perhaps with this new Accord, I'll get my answers soon enough." - Liam Kincaid
"Creepy bitch. Seriously, six eyes?! Who the hell needs six eyes?!" Lucius Brown
"The Mariposa is an annoying creature, but if one can look past all of the incessant and unwanted mothering you will find the wisdom of one beyond it's years. While it has much to learn, it also has much to teach... Remember that " Tyrus
"Leave a quote!" - Name
Mariposa hasn't ever diablerized and lies to fit in with other Cainites.

Order of Saint Blaise- Mariposa has only recently joined the Order (January 2018) and would love guidance from others.
