The Blood Moon
Patricia "Patty" McDermott, Priest
Inverted pack priest
Apparent Age: 22
Weight: 115 lbs.
Clan: Ventrue Antitribu
Sire: Sir Maximilian Kroft, Paladin
Morality: Path of Honorable Accord
Patty dresses like a respectable businessman, even though she is a woman. However, she usually leaves a lock of red hair dangling from under her cap to ensure everyone knows she is flouting convention. In colder months, she adds a caped greatcoat to her ensemble (think Sherlock Holmes’s coat) and hides her sword within the liner. During warmer months, she carries her weapon inside a roll for a canvas.
Many find her appearance and mannerisms “cute” because she is so attractive and likeable and so gloss over the subversiveness of it all. Occasionally, she even smokes in public.
Patty rarely discusses her life as a mortal since being reborn into Caine’s grace. Suffice it to say that a “murder” (really justified homicide, but ladies are not expected to defend themselves against their husbands) brought her to the attention of her sire.
For the most part, Cainites consider gender and sexuality as tools rather than reasons to create a hierarchy, and so Patty has found a great deal of freedom among the Sword of Caine. Even as a mortal, she felt the moral restrictions people lived with, especially with regard to the double standard of gender, were untenable, and so she took to the Path of Honorable Accord with glee. She is a devoted student of its tenets and has also become a budding Noddist due to her role as priest.
She believes the Camarilla personifies all the petty injustices of mortal society and magnifies them tenfold, and so, having a warrior’s heart, she wants to tear it all down. To date, she has successfully made inroads among certain members of the Red Coats (some American subjects, not the British overlords) in an attempt to subvert the enemy and possibly gain defectors. No one outside her pack knows that these “inroads” include her ongoing romance with Abigail Swanson, a Toreador neonate.
Because she can only feed from the inverted (LGBTQ) members of society, and to snub her nose at social convention, Patty has formed the Society for the Celebration of Rare Beauty, a mortal organization.
