"We must select the illusion which appeals to our temperament, and embrace it with passion."

Cyril Connolly
Heather was a typical rich debutant, from a well to do family in Savannah Georgia. She was the youngest of four children, and very spoiled by her father. She was raised like a boy, to be smart and take care of herself. When she was 14, she was sent to the Institut Villa Pierrefeu, a finishing school in Switzerland. She returned at the end of World War II.

Her father had ties with Kindred society, and was a ghoul for many years before she was born. She grew up thinking of Jean-René St. Salvius as a close family friend, one she always admired. They talked often on her many trips home from the finishing school. Although she’d always known there was something different about him, she dismissed the strange family stories about him as fairy tales.

When he asked her to take a walk with him alone on the night of her debutante ball, she readily agreed. They ended up down by the lake under a summer full moon. What began as a simple kiss took them into the guest house where he first embraced her, then made love to her.

To Jean-René’s relief, Heather was thrilled with her new unlife. He began teaching her everything she needed to know, and she moved in with him while beginning plans for their wedding. They decided to tour Europe while the plans were being finalized.

Heather and Jean-René are not the typical Anarchist Brujah of the twentieth Century. Jean Rene was embraced in the late 1800s, and is of the old school Brujah, those that value learning and honor. Heather has always been passionate about helping the less fortunate, and believing in equality for all, in a way only the spoiled rich can be. When she was mortal she had no idea what the real world was like, but since her embrace, she's seen more of it. And she’s determined to help those who need it.
