Originally a peasant girl from a dysfunctional family, Carna was taken up as the blood doll of a Tremere Prince who took her to her residence. Her time with her one-time lover proved to be painful, since he repeatedly abused her and later abandoned her to feed from others of his herd. One night he entered her chamber, furious for some slight of his clan superiors against him. In rage, he Embraced Carna as revenge, believing that she would have an even lesser standing within the clan than he, since she was a woman.
After having been taken to Vienna, Carna worked to earn her standing within the clan, eventually even managing to claim Praxis over Marseilles. In time, she became disillusioned with the Jyhad, voicing concerns that it might never end. Other clan members mocked her for such views and she was transferred to Milwaukee. Despite being made both Regent and Primogen, Carna knows that her work is merely to distract the other clans from the studies conducted by more studious members of the Chantry. She herself answers to an agent of the Inner Council, the assassin Victor.
Carna has straight blond hair that hides half her face. She looks a little sultry and uses this to disarm the men she meets socially. Many know her to be a true shark and avoid her. The truth is that she is growing tired of all the intrigue.
