Aliases: (Gangrel Only: Calamity Jane)
Real Name: Unknown
Apparent Age: early 30s
Physical Description: Jennica is a thin, pale woman of average height and formal bearing. Her features are fine-carved, almost sharp, appearing more ethereal than seductive. (Gorgeous x5, Magnetic x3) She has dark blue eyes and long, curly red hair, left loose around her shoulders. Her voice is even and low, seeming to always hold a few words in reserve. At court, she tends toward semi-formal clothing in dark colors, be it a well-tailored suit or an understated cocktail dress, always with heels. Outside of court, especially when travelling, she prefers dark, simple, utilitarian clothing.

She is the resplendent other,
the glorious dark horizon.
To be in her arms is to be in her confidence,
and in her heart there is a vast plain
where dead men sleep.
Very little is known of Jennica's past, which she prefers not to discuss; bits and pieces are best gleaned from those who have known her a while.
It is supposed that she wandered the country for many years before making her formal debut into Camarilla society, being a natural loner and uncomfortable with relinquishing her anonymity. The years that followed, however, made her allegiance clear, culminating in her decision to remain with the Camarilla when the majority of her clan tore itself away. She never publicly regretted the decision, and developed a reputation for strict adherence to the Traditions and the practice of prestation. Armed with this knowledge and conviction, Jennica served as the Harpy of Athens, Georgia for several years under the Malkavian Prince Jordan Drake. Subsequent changes in the administration saw Jennica also serve as Sheriff of Athens, before she took praxis in the spring of 2010.
Ousted from praxis by an ambush later that year, Jennica roamed the continent for a while--then disappeared into torpor. Awakening around 2018, she traveled frequently between Georgia domains--fighting alongside friends, losing her humanity, and beginning the long struggle to regain it.
Beginning in late 2020, she orchestrated a series of popular soirees, establishing a reputation as a masterful socialite, and moved her formal residence to St. Augustine, Florida. Still travelling frequently, her attitude seems changed--driven less by wanderlust than commitment to an untold plan.

- "It is easy to feel that one lacks the proper words to express what is inside. Words, like anything else, are tools. Sometimes the tools we are given are inadequate to perform the task we desire."

- In a discusion regarding status and respect: "There are certainly different ways to get authority. Prince, Archon, Justicar, sure.
