Once she was rising star in Germany's culinary world. Her passion caught the attention of her sire upon first meeting, or the assault on her sous-chef during competition may have had something to do with it. Whatever the rationale, her 'lie, steal, cheat, kill or die' attitude for perfecting her art led her into the arms of Clan Toreador.
After making her way to America post embrace, she devoured every lesson Julius had to offer. She even found herself a student of Julius' spouse, Lucas Grunwald in combat tactics. It has been suggested on more than one occasion that she inherited both his and Julius' disdain for stupidity. After his death Petra kept her name hyphenated in his memory. With the passing of her broodmate Aegis Cole soon after, she was thrown into a deep state of mourning with her sire.
Once Julius stepped down from her position as Prince, Petra began considering a change of scenery for herself. The wandering rose made quite a splash in the domain of her broodmate Zackary Cole while visiting with her family in 2013. She was even spotted out in public dancing with Prince Luther Rommell.
She came to be the caretaker of Dr. Ion, a scientifically gifted ghoul whose vivid imagination for innovation matches her thirst for culinary discovery. She is incredibly protective of him and his time, and is known to charge for it if she feels it will take him away from the projects she has designated him to.
After a trip to Columbus, Ohio and an extended conversation with their Keeper, she was struck with inspiration, sending the domain 7 Yoshino Cherry Trees as a token of affection. She would return again a year later to check up on her new found friends.
Intially she served in the Primogen seat of Atlanta, Georgia, a reputedly cursed spot for Toreador after David Blanchett vacated the position, as well as existence. Despite this, she was seen in numerous domains with an easy going smile, though more recently these sightings tends to include arm in arm with a certain Gangrel.
These nights the wandering rose has made her next move, this time as Seneschal of Atlanta, Georgia. As excited as some were for this promotion, Grunwald-Cole herself seems to be growing in ire for the boldly stupid.
A blossoming romance with a certain Gangrel, Irish, has met with a tragic end.
