Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable...

Appearance

Siegrid appears to be in her mid-thirties with sharp, Nordic features. Her eyes are an unnatural, eerie blue that have an ice-like sheen and there is a permanent chill that seems to follow where she goes. She is typically seen in a heavy leather coat and seems to be the most comfortable in the eye of a storm.

Personality

Siegrid is one who comes off with a force of purpose and teetering on that edge of violence. She has no patience nor tolerance for those who waste her time, and even less care for traditional social decorum. She enjoys speaking with and mentoring younger kindred, often challenging them by playing devil's advocate to test their beliefs, believing firmly that all should stand for the strength of their convictions, either by the strength of their word or the strength of their fists. Family and Honor are the tenants she lives by.

History

Like her mother, Siegrid seems to be at the center of major uprisings and conflicts. She held Praxis in Chicago and led a campaign against the Sabbat until the signing of the Blood Accord. Once Chicago was freed from their influence, she stepped down for the next generation.

This conflict is troubling, to say the least." - Julian Motgomery-Westwood

  • "She damn near tore my arm off when she shook my hand! And that was just the first reason why I like her." - Winifred Harriet Mickel

  • "Another of my brethren who has known me for years and years, but who will likely have forgotten my face and name. I am suited to this, but all the same hope to be of use to her for she is as dear to my heart as she is to my Sire's. Time will tell, I think." - Aodhan the Druid

Kinsmen die,
You yourself die,
gods and gold die;
an honourable name will never die,
one which was won
by your own work
(Hávamál stanza 77)
