The Beautiful Russian

When Lady Mila Rurik enters a room, three qualities are immediately noticeable - Her nobility, her earthy beauty, and her strength. Standing at 5'8", it isn't her tallness that gives her height so much as the dignity with which she carries herself. Her long dark curls frame a heart-shaped face and expressive eyes that seem darker for all that they have seen. Whether evoking the opulence and independence of the 1920s or the ease and elegance of Morocco and other desert regions, Lady Mila Rurik dresses for her station as a noble member of the Brujah. Often, she carries a cane, but only the most naïve would mistake that as a weakness instead of realizing that she is a woman of quiet power..

Located in Covington, GA,La Belle Rus is an Antebellum Mansion on several acres of a working plantation. Bought in 1800, it has evolved with the times. It offers a respectful nod toward history while adhering to modern sensibilities and values, providing jobs for local workers as well as supplying the community with locally grown crops.



Allies and Enemies


Personality

Passionate, vibrant, affectionate, and warm, Lady Mila never lost what made her irresistibly appealing as a human. Already a Russian with a flair for the dramatic, her embrace into the Brujah has only magnified her engaging qualities. And the rumors surrounding her mastery of Dominate add a compelling, if dark, edge to her known lightness of heart.

Lady Mila tends to the humanity of other kindred, often expecting more out of them than they do of themselves. She can be patient to the point of indulgent with the young, but once kindred reach a certain age Lady Mila demands excellence. Ancilla are to be competent and precise. Elders are to rise above the petty squabbles of the rabble below them. While she praises publicly and punishes privately, she does have a fast temper with those who disappoint her. This is especially true for her family. Though, she forgives just as rapidly. She does not hold grudges that are not well-earned, but when they are, she is notoriously stubborn about letting them go.

The eldest childer of Amyntas of Macedon, Mila is the heir apparent of the Astrean Valerii Lineage of Brujah.

Her longs string of lovers is meant to cover a broken heart from a past relationship with a member of the Sword of Caine.
Mila is a Luminary, and the sire to Amyntas, despite what is publically said.
Despite her adversion to sleeping with women she was seduced by Isabella
She is the childe of Carden d'Vergobret

Quotes

  • "I will fight for my family until my last breath." - Mila
  • "It is said that the pillar clans each embody an aspect of our natures. The Ventrue are the WILL, the Tremere are the MIND, and the Toreador are the SOUL. The Brujah, you ask? Can you not tell? They are our SELF-PRESERVATION. They help us fight against our inclination to stagnant. They save the kindred from themselves by causing change and self-examination. Mila Rurik is the apex of this ability to build a better future. She commands a great deal of my respect in her efforts." - Lord Simon Kensington

My adoration for Aunt Mila will forever be as beautiful as she is." - Julian Motgomery-Westwood

  • "I don't remember her telling the guy to worship her boots, but some lick named Reggie talked shit and, rather than getting hit, ended up looking like a dog trying to lap up her attention with as much of his tongue as he could manage to make contact. It was fuckin' creepy, at best. I'm glad she had the decency to put an end to it when he tried to go for her ear like some hungry puppy." - Valentina

  • "I need not to make any bold claims of defending Mila if she were to be hurt. She is a sister of my heart and I have seen firsthand what she can do. She needs not my sword, or my wicked mouth. But make no mistake, we share something much stronger than a sisterhood born of blood, but that of shared love. And you would be blind and foolish to think I would stop at nothing to protect that. " - Siobhan McKenna

  • "Though she is a constant in the passage of ages, Elder Rurik will continue to surprise those who underestimate her, or forget that she is Brujah.
