Hanifa bint Nasir ar-Rashid
Born as the modest daughter of a scribe in Aleppo, Hanifa's life was shattered when the Greeks invaded her homeland in 962. Hanifa's family was slaughtered and she was taken as a slave and whore by the soldiers. She managed to escape after a night of heavy drinking among the soldiers and avenged herself by killing several sleeping Greeks, including those who had violated her.
When she went to the ruins of her former house, she plunged the knife into her chest to commit suicide. An Islamic Brujah who had witnessed her deeds and was convinced that her determination could be of further sue against the infidels saved her life by granting her the Embrace. He introduced her into the Ashirra and taught her the ways of war. When the crusades came, Hanifa saw it as her calling to defend her people and protecting their holy sites, but was willing to reason with any Cainite who desired a truce.
Over the years however, she became absent-minded and eventually entered Torpor. She awoke in 1917, during the Arab War of Independence, and joined in to defend her home against the Turks. She was eventually destroyed by a hired Assamite during the conflict.
