Apparent Age: Mid to late 20s.
Concept: She was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful. Something to be admired from a distance, not up close.
Physical description: Nova stands a little taller than the average woman, with dark almond eyes and wavy auburn hair. Her skin is pale, cheekbones high, with full lips usually painted an amusingly stereotypical shade of red. She dresses as she pleases, whether it be Marchesa or ripped jeans, but whatever she wears, she wears the hell out of it.
Resourceful by word of Sebastian Han
- Incompetent by word of Fury Premysl on behalf of Harridan Cornelius Yul
A childe of the Toreador elder, Elise London (or Elsa Linden, depending on who you ask), Nova was embraced shortly after the Camarilla first took Hartford from the Sabbat. After her Accounting and debut, she was released by her sire to spread her wings. Nova split, and stayed gone until January 2013, when she breezed back into Hartford and her sire's life just in time to witness the beginning of the end of Anya Pyotrevna.
After Anya's Praxis fell, Nova drifted in and out of the city, before disappearing for quite a while stating she had some business to attend to in Ukraine. Once her long-time ally, Fredrick Gold, took Praxis she was right back in Hartford. After some issue with James Norton, Nova became the Toreador primogen, a position she has held for almost two years.
Nova briefly took Harpy of Hartford for a few months, but claimed the position was not for her and that she'd rather see Rosamund Elise Kingsley back as Harpy. The Primogen supported her decision.
She says she's been an aerialist, a saboteuse, and an assassin. She says she's been to Monte Carlo, that she grew up in Dresden before the bombs, that she was trained by the Nazis, then the Stasi after the fall, and sent to the KGB for polish. All of this sounds too patently ridiculous to be true, but she looks so damn serious when she says it -- and she's never lied about it. At least, she's never been caught lying about it.
While she is not in any formal coterie, Nova's alliances seem to be mainly to benefit the other women of Hartford. They have, mostly jokingly, been referred to as Your Worst Nightmare, or Kingston Lennox's Worst Nightmare.
