Like the Phoenix, she rises...
2008 In the summer of 2008, Lena appears for the first time in Iowa City, Iowa. She is a rambunctious Anarch who tells stories of blowing up shrubbery and several conquests. She catches the eyes of several noteworthy kindred quickly, these include Zio!, Chester Black, and several ganrel within Iowa.
Something happens in Autumn of 2008 in the Anarch territory of Waverly that leaves Lena claiming she's done being a liason between the Anarchs and the Camarilla. She is taken under the wings of Daniel "Mac" McDonald and Zio!, as well is seen spending most of her time at gatherings with several Gangrel, including Amber, Daniel Bronson, Charlotte Parfois, and Alex Rhoades
In winter of 2008 Lena expresses the desire to bite the bullet and join the Camarilla officially. She can be described as excited and nervous at the same time.
It has been debated as to what made her decide on leaving the Anarch movement. She has been known to claim that the reasoning for this involved a group of Anarchs in Waverly, Iowa, selling her to Police Hunters so that they could proceed with dealings with the Sabbat as well as a other supernaturals. When she was left by them, the Camarilla saved her and in a debt of gratitude, Lena agreed to join the Camarilla.
2009 At the Midwinter Gathering of 2009, Lena is taken under a joint Accounting under Chester Black and Zio!. She makes her public debut amongst Camarilla citizens. And seems more reluctant and nervous than she ever had been before. When she wasn't hiding behind one of her Brujah guardians, she was seen relaxing with the Gangrel and playing games with them.
The accounting was a short one, as Lena already knew the traditions and, having resided within a Camarilla domain for a while, had displayed numerous counts of loyalty to her new sect. In March of 2009, Lena! received her Acknowledgment from John Ragner in Iowa City, as well as was officially adopted into Zio!'s family, officially receiving her "!" which she has since used in almost all over her missives.
Shortly after receiving her Acknowledgment, Lena! publicly had a row with John Ragner where he had called her out on her behavior on Elysium, and when asked what she had done wrong, Lena! was received with dodgy behavior from the Prince as well as being verbally scolded by Former Archon Pavel Nadolski for questioning a Prince publicly. She proceeded to ask what she had done wrong, besides mention the mere name of a neighboring prince, and for her pertinence was stripped of her Acknowledgment. John Ragner ordered Lena! to be brought to him by his scourge and several other people, including Matthias Blackstone, and she managed to elude their grasp. It was later revealed to her that John Ragner spread the word of her being a coward and running away from him, when she was in fact evading his attempts to murder her for standing up to his sadistic humiliation. She was taken under the accounting of Chester Black right after and several Kindred outside of Iowa City congratulated Lena! for standing up to John Ragner and doing what needed to be done.
For the next six months, very few people heard from Lena!, however she still managed to visit Iowa once to mourn the death of her friend and mentor, Misty Lynch-Tyr. She was seen in Iowa City a couple times, though often not allowed to leave the side of Chester Black and often was discouraged from talking to other men. The reports of those that did see her during this time said she frequently asked about her friends back in Iowa, prominently Daniel Bronson and Amber. She was often reported to be sad and longing for home, sometimes even described as being princess captured in a castle.
In September, a group of Kindred in the coterie known as "Team Fail" traveled to the Twin Cities to encourage Chester Black to release Lena! from the accounting and bestow upon her the title of *Acknowledged. This group consisted of Daniel "Mac" McDonald, Zio!, Daniel Bronson, Fifi!, Ted Freeman, and Noctis. That night there was a raid by the Sabbat on the Twin Cities and the Team gathered to help in the battle, as did Lena!. The domain of the Twin Cities had several warriors and volunteers that night and three groups were made to defend against the attack. Lena! was placed in a group with Chester Black, Ted Freeman, Horace Mansfield-Rhumer, and a few others. While Lena was still under the accounting, she followed Chet's orders to the letter, even though she hadn't seen real combat for a long time. Lena and Ted fought to stay with the rest of the team, but they resigned to listened to the Prince's orders and stay on his team. Their team was attacked by beasts created by the Sabbat that were immune to the powers of Lena!'s presence. In an act to save himself and catch up with Horace Mansfield-Rhumer, Chester ran from the battle leaving Lena and Ted to fend for themselves. Lena, resigned to die, having seen her loved ones after so long, took Ted's arm to throw him from the wake of the attack. In that split moment, Ted spoke to Lena! saying "They didn't come here for me, they came for you. You're going to survive." and threw her from the beasts, sacrificing himself for her life. Ted perished in the fight against the beasts. Lena was left alone, but alive, and fleeing she made her way back to her friends.

"Let's be serious here Chet, you didn't want a Childe, you wanted a Princess you could lock up in a tower. And last I checked, little birds didn't fly into my haven and braid my fucking hair for me." Lena!'s comments to Chester Black a few months after she left his accounting.
