A short time after entering unlife, Illana learned of the existence of werewolves. Fascinated by them, she tried to approach them and after several vicious setbacks, found a pack willing to tolerate her. Preferring their company to that of her own kind, Illana followed them, entering cities only when needing to feed.
Illana relies on her childe for contact to other vampires. While nomadic for centuries, she has since taken up residence near Vancouver. Here, Illana has made contact with the Children of Gaia and the Glasswalkers. In the growing tensions between the two races, Illana has placed herself out of the loop, not wanting to be involved in a vampire-werewolf war.
