Biography

Born in 1790 in Zaragoza, Spain, Ramona was the second child of Amancio Jimenez y Reyes and Maribel Caballero y Jimenez. After Maribel died in childbirth with Ramona, Amancio did not remarry and instead raised Ramona and her brother Fernando alone (albeit with the help of servants). When Ramona was 8, her father agreed to let her join her brother for lessons with his tutor.

Ramona was 18 when Zaragoza was twice besieged by French forces during the Peninsular Wars. During the second siege Fernando joined the city milita, and, after Amancio died of one of the diseases ravaging both the city and the besieging army, Ramona joined the civilian volunteer fighters, where her hearing was permanently damaged from spending hours at a time helping to man artillery weapons. Zaragoza fell towards the end of winter, and Fernando, along with the other surviving Spanish soldiers, was forced to join the French army.

Two months later, Ramona disguised herself as a boy and fled Zaragoza to find the Spanish forces. Joining up with them, she fought in the rest of the Peninsular Wars, ultimately finding herself at the final battle in Toulouse, France, where she was Embraced at the age of 24 by Knox, a fledgeling Brujah still under Accounting himself, and taken under Accounting by his sire, Derek. Over the next century, Ramona fought in the First Carlist War to put the young Isabella II on the Spanish throne, again disguised herself as a boy to enter German universities, fought in the Glorious Revolution to dethrone the adult Isabella II, fought for Prussia in the Franco-Prussian War, and went to Switzerland to study at Zurich University when it opened its doors to female students.

As World War I broke out, Ramona initially stayed in neutral Switzerland. However, when Germany broke the Hague Convention by deploying chlorine gas as a weapon, she went and joined the Allied forces against them. Heartsick at the devastation of the war, when it ended she travelled to the US. There she met and Embraced her two childer, Fiona and Valentina, a pair of ardent suffragists. Ramona spent several years travelling with her two childer and her grandsire, before leaving the US in 1930. She relocated to Bristol in the UK, joining the Camarilla court there. She left during World War II to again fight for the Allies against Germany, and returned to Bristol afterwards.

Since then, Ramona has worked with the Elder Assamite Kincaid in their shared interests in the city's intellectual pursuits, defended the domain against both the Sabbat and infernalists, continued with studies that interest her, and worked with various feminist and unionist movements.

Soundtrack & Inspirations

Soundtrack

Too much is not enough, Nobody gave it up, I'm not the kind to lay down and die

When the world's crashin' down, When I fall and hit the ground, I will turn myself around, Don't you try to stop it!

Ramona5.jpg

Far off in the distance a fire comes to life, A flicker of a flame breaks through the dark, Burning soft and bright, Dancing with the light, Awakening the Heavens and the Earth

Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past, You must fight just to keep them alive

And if I end up with blood on my hands, Well, I know that you’ll understand, ’Cause I fight like a girl

Like a small boat on the ocean, Sending big waves into motion, Like how a single word can make a heart open, I might only have one match, but I can make an explosion

If I die in battle, find dark blood upon my steel, If I die in battle, tell them I stood and never kneeled

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow, 'Cause my choices are mine it's my fate. And I'll never bow down from the sorrow, I'll face all that is coming my way

Yeah this little light of mine, it's time to let it shine a bit, 'Cause there's no point in hiding it. It's everything I am, The source of all my hope, And it's the reason why I stand

I like to keep my issues strong, It's always darkest before the dawn
