Blood & Bourbon
Other Crones by Status
Circle Status of the Crone Status •••
Status: Bourbon Sanctified •••, Camarilla ••, Circle of the Crone •••, Ventrue 0
Coterie: Antoine Savoy’s inner circle
Most Kindred are surprised to learn that the city’s most preeminent vampiric mambo not associated with Baron Cimitière is Ventrue. Rosa Bale considers the Samedi houngan unthinkably arrogant for his claims of being resurrected by Baron Samedi, and bitterly opposes him and the prince from Antoine Savoy’s side. She is also an accomplished spirit medium who sells her talents as an information broker.
Circle Status of the Crone Status ••
Lineage: 12th gen. childe of Jonah Freeman
Status: Anarch ••, Brujah •, Camarilla •, Circle of the Crone ••
Coterie: Kindred Liberation Front ••
A ‘70s feminist and neopagan who never quite realized she missed the ’60s, Eris spent her mortal life bucking the establishment and throwing herself into anything that wasn’t mainstream. Embraced by Jonah for her magical dabblings, but her sire’s vitae unhinged something in her. She became devoted to the idea of promoting chaos, even changing her mortal name to Eris. She is convinced that Malkavians possess profound insight into the true nature of reality and is on exceptionally good terms with the clan, who find her more “open-minded” than other Kindred. It’s not uncommon for many licks to mistake her for one of the kooks herself.
Circle Status of the Crone Status •
Lineage: 11th gen. childe of Rocco Agnello
Status: Camarilla 0, Circle of the Crone •, Gangrel ••
An unfaithful pastor’s wife Embraced by Rocco Agnello in punishment for her sinful ways. Dahlia-Fleur loathed her sire and joined the Circle of the Crone partly to spite him and partly because the covenant’s transgressive, anti-patriarchal Lilith worship resonated with her. She is largely indifferent to the Vodouisant bloc of the covenant and to most other Kindred affairs besides: as far as her sire knows, she spends much of her time haunting the depths of Lake Pontchartrain and surfacing to hunt mortals unfortunate enough to be proximate to the lake at night. This antisocial existence has not been conductive to her humanity, and those comparatively few Kindred aware she still exists wonder how long she has left before she degenerates into a wight.
Circle Status of the Crone Status 0
Lineage: 12th gen. childe of unknown sire
Status: Bourbon Sanctified 0, Camarilla 0, Circle of the Crone 0, Ravnos 0
Yellow Sidra is all things to all people. She at least nominally belongs to the Circle of the Crone, but it’s unclear exactly what belief system she follows; she’ll variously claim to be a devotee of Erzulie, Papa Legba, Lilith, Kali Mata, Santa Muerte, or no god/dess at all, depending who she’s talking to. Sometimes she’s Roma, sometimes she’s Mexican, and sometimes she’s Indian (American Indian or East Indian). She’s variously claimed to be a Caitiff, Tremere, Ravnos (of the line of Durga Syn, a great seeress of the clan), and Malkavian (of the line of Tryphosa, a greet seeress of that clan). The only clearly established things about her is that she’s a fortune-teller active in Jackson Square, claims to have great prophetic gifts, and will exercise them in exchange for payments in cash, blood, and future favors. It’s unknown from where she gets her sobriquet of “Yellow”, but people who don’t want to use her “full name” just call her Sidra. It’s only been in recent months that other licks, tired of her various contradictory claims of lineage, have “definitively” lumped her in with the Ravnos.
