Physical description: Razi looks like a shorter, athletically-curvy woman with dark auburn hair and grey eyes. Going on appearance, she's a mix between Spanish, North African/Arabic, and Eastern European. Her accent is a soft Turkish; when traveling to other domains, she's been seen to wear a loose head-scarf, sometimes with a pair of headphones hidden under the folds.
- Acknowledged by Prince Mustafa of Istanbul, Turkey
- Dedicated by former Prince Morgan Wynn Howell of the Twin Cities
- Brave by former Prince Morgan Wynn Howell of the Twin Cities
- Resourceful by Prince Zphonco Davinovich of Milwaukee, WI
(CoH Only: Aspirant Sister of Dragons)
Quiet and curious, Razi is almost never without a small notebook and her string of glass prayer beads, which see several dozen turns over the course of any gather night. She is trained as a Rabbi and is willing to speak with whomever needs her services. Likewise, she prefers to listen to the conversation, rather than be the focus of it. When at gathering, she actively tries to be helpful in whatever situation she finds herself in. In less-than-friendly situations, she becomes protective of those around her, doing her best to get non-combatants out of dangerous areas. Lately, however, she's been seen to loosen up at times from her normal overly-polite mannerisms; some are hoping it becomes a permanent change.
Razi first showed up within the Camarilla many years ago in Istanbul, joining her family members in Prince Mustafa's court and seeking Acknowledgement. She remained there until March of 2011, when she relocated to the Twin Cities to escape the "Arab Spring" discontent. Initially, she was seen mostly with other Children of Haqim, such as then-Prince Morgan Wynn Howell and clanmates from the Winona and La Crosse domains. Her Probationary sect standing was removed by Justicar Maris Streck in June 2011 after an official visit to Cardiff, and she began working more closely with the other residents on several different matters.
She was named as one of two Lesser Harpies to Alex Randal in early December 2011. On December 30th, she entered into combat with infernalists and their demon masters in St. Cloud with a combined force of Camarillians and Sabbat; she was one of only seven Court residents to make the return trip. Both Harpy Randal and the second of his Lessers, a Nosferatu called Katarina, were both killed in action, making her the only surviving link to the Harpy records, which she passed on after a month to the new Harpy.
She was seen being escorted (almost exclusively) by Primogen Alabastor Haroukin of Baltimore at the 2012 Midwinter Ball, presumably as his date for the event.
After the ceding of Praxis by former-Prince Howell, Razi became the only Child of Haqim within the domain; after two months and (two Praxis seizures), Razi gave notice of vacancy with no forwarding domain. She has not been seen or heard from publicly since.
I think not.
Children of Haqim (by no means an exhaustive list):
A few others she gets along reasonably well with:
- the infernal
After her experiences thus far, she's learned that paranoia can be useful. She doesn't claim specific Kindred enemies per se, but she certainly gets watchful.
