Heather Poe is a young woman who the player may come across and become involved with over the events of the game. She has the potential to become the player character's ghoul.
Heather is a young fashion design student living in Los Angeles with her grandmother and attending college there, though it isn't her hometown. Her parents died in a car crash before the game started. It can be assumed that she was the only surviving victim of that same car crash which result in her start in the game.
She can be found, in critical condition, in the operation room in the Santa Monica Medical Clinic. If the player character engaged in conversation with Knoxx previously, the option of saving the girl by offering vampire blood to her will be enabled. If this scene doesn't happen before the completion of the Elizabeth Dane quest, she will die from her wounds.
If saved, Heather shows up a few nights later, thanking the player character on the street for saving her life. The player character has the option of letting her live in the haven or freeing her from the blood bond she acquired.
At some point, she will have a symbolic dream about dying. If you talk to her before inspecting the tower, after it's attacked and debris in the street, you can release her. If you don't release her in any version of the official or regular unofficial patches, she will die at the hands of the Sabbat as part of the story.
If you do have the plus version of the unofficial patches, she will be spared from her story related death.
- If the Player (you) reveal yourself as a vampire after feeding her blood (thus turning her into a ghoul), she will call security.
- If the player is a Malkavian, Heather will talk like a Malkavian.
