Bistakh was the leader of an Assamite delegation to Damascus, who had the secret task of finding evidence of infernal dealings of the ruling Toreador or evidence of the Baali that were rumored to be hidden within the city.
Bistakh, whose sire fell victim to infernal temptation and was killed in retaliation by the Elders of Alamut, hoped to avenge her sires fall by ripping off the masks of the Toreador and expose their infernal dealings to the world.
Angry and zealous, she suspects that the Elders have sent her primary so that they would have a scapegoat just in case something went wrong. Regardless, she tried subterfuge for a long time, seeking the aid of the other Clans within the city.
She stayed in Damascus long after her initial mission, monitoring the activities of the Kindred within the city and keeping a watch on the possible Infernalists who would claim the legacy of the Baali.
