Saieed believed that the reason the Lasombra were so attuned to darkness, despite their original habit being the sunny Mediterranean, were part of an obsessive-compulsive reaction against that which was most natural before. She experimented with Obtenebration without dabbling in Abyss mysticism, finding mundane applications for the discipline.
As a psychologist, she also examined the psychological repercussions of the loss of reflection among her Clan mates, as well as the limits and malleabilities of their Clan Curse. Information exchange with the Giovanni led her belive that the Lasombra were somehow connected to the "Void" within the Underworld.
