CJ showed up in Indianapolis sometime around 2005, an Independent gangrel hunting a kindred named Mack the Knife. While Mack eventually left (current whereabouts unknown), CJ remained and earned a reputation as an investigator while on her own and a bit of a laid-back slacker when she showed up at Cam gatherings. In 2007, she fell off the radar following a rather eventful summer gathering in Indianapolis during which a pack of rogue gangrel led by Angus the Mad were defeated by a group of gangrel led by the Justicar Xaviar. CJ had aligned herself with the latter group, but she returned to the gathering deeply upset by something and was not seen again until a year later, when she arrived in Annapolis, MD. Though she considers Annapolis her home, she has wandered across the Mid-Atlantic and spent a significant amount of time in Northern Virginia.
Still a fierce Independent with the occasional armchair quarterback's interest in Cam politics, CJ earned tolerance in many domains by acting as a scout and sabbat fighter. In late 2010, she abruptly joined the Cam. Few understand why. She was made deputy Sheriff of Northern Virginia by Grim and continued in the position under George Hill, but stepped down to become Sheriff of Annapolis in 2011.
Throughout her rather violent existence, she has struggled to maintain her Humanity.
She considers the relatively few Camarilla deaths at the battle against the infernal on the Potomac (Nonclave 2011, during which she was acting Sheriff) one of her proudest memories.
Nothing official. She prefers the company of more humane individuals and her clanmates, and often joins up with a group of Toreador - including Harrow - and Malkavian women to scout.

"Why the hell would anybody listen to me, anyway? I'm just an Independent! My word means nothing." "That is NOT the case, and you know it."
"Piss me off and I'll Acknowledge you!" - Prince Florent
"What's C.J. stand for?" "Calamity Jane" - Mattias Roman
"That, at least, I did not expect." - Virgil Deems
CJ used to date a Tremere
Her reason for joining the Cam ("It was time") doesn't quite work
She had to be de-wormed after being bitten by frogs
She doesn't like being called Cassandra
She tried to stake Corvid with a plunger once.
CJ's looking for a reason to not quit the Cam and go back to her Independent existence.
For a Gangrel, she's not much of a fighter, but she's a good scout and has managed not to die, despite frequent visits to Northern Virginia.
