Priestess of Thorns
Anka was born in 1900, in the dusk of the Mexican Golden Age. Her mother made her living by selling herself to the various banditos that roamed the country. Eventually, her own mother became jealous of her daughter's beauty and when Anka was "invited" to the bandits leader's room, the two fought against each other, with Anka being triumphant and banishing her mother.
For two years she laid with the leader, eventually gaining some status within the group, until his men rebelled against him and raped her afterwards repeatedly. She avenged herself by setting fire to their compound, killing all of the men inside. A Ravnos antitribu who had long watched the girl eventually came to Embrace her afterwards, and she quickly accustomed to the unlifestyle of the antitribu. She began collecting estates by using her powers of seduction and illusion to charm elder men to disowning their heirs and bequeathing everything to her.
In 1961, all her owned estates were burned to the ground, because she had enraged a powerful Lasombra who had decided that the neonate should receive a lection. Anka's reaction was training a pack of young Sabbat vampires to her needs and beginning to continually disrupting his business, trying to draw him out to finish him directly. The two have continued this game for a few decades by now and only time will tell if Anka will manage to survive the wrath of her rival.
