Physical Description

Neferu appears as a beautiful young Egyptian woman with delicate features, light brown skin, and piercing eyes. In public she favors light, flowing garments that accentuate her figure. In private, she wears the regalia of an Egyptian princess, covered in markings and jewelry that glorify Typhon-Set.

Brief History

The beautiful and cunning Neferu proved herself as a “true daughter of Set,” even in her most tender years as a mortal. Neferu was a handmaiden to the wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten, who as God-King of Egypt attempted to do away with the Egyptian pantheon and establish monotheism across Egypt. While she played the part of lady-in-waiting to her mistress, Neferu secretly remained a loyal Follower of Set, using her position and her appearance to feed information to his priests and ensure the downfall of Pharaoh Akhenaten and his dynasty. An ancient Setite observed her skill, beauty and dedication, and eventually brought her into the true service of Set. While little was known or spoken of her for centuries, as Egypt began to suffer under its enemies, Neferu appeared at the Fire Court as its Sovereign. Within the Fire Court, she made certain that the visiting Ventrue and Toreador who wished to place their Roman fingers around Egypt’s neck paid proper obeisance before being allowed any taste of its riches in late antiquity. As the centuries passed, she became more secluded, only appearing to the most honored of “guests” of the Fire Court.

Known for her youthful appearance, she has been called one of the "True Daughters of Set". Acting as one of the main forces in plans towards the resurrection of Set. She is has found the power base of hers to be within the Fire Court. Though in the past she accepted some Ventrue and Brujiah were accepted for those who could pay the proper obeisance. These nights she is not as seen as much as she was in the previous ones. rarely seen in modern nights, as threats and power struggles affect the nests of Egypt the Fire Court rises with them, and in its center is its Queen, Neferu. She is the nominal head of the Fire Court located in modern day Luxor, which serves as a bastion of Typhonism.
