Jolanta of Niepolomice



Jolanta of Niepołomice


1002 CE

Final Death:

Mid-16th century







Jolanta of Niepołomice, was a pagan Gangrel of medieval Poland.


Jolanta was a girl born and raised in the plains north of Kraków, in the last years of the 10th century. She was Embraced into Clan Gangrel by Arnulf, in 1002, and made her haven in the dense forest of Niepołomice near Kraków.

With little vanity left she was a vampire of simple appearance, dressing in peasant's clothing. Her unkempt brown dark hair falls in tangles, being frequently matted with leaves and twigs. Her fingernails resemble claws and her ears were tufted like the feral creature she has become.

During her mortal days, she was a priestess of the Zoryas. After her Embrace she became a protector of the pagan faith in her territory and feasted in the blood of Christian men in retaliation for their persecution on those who worship the Mother. In this endeavor, she has formed an alliance with a hedge wizard named Ludmilla, who shares her disgust for the growth of Christianity.

In the good old days, this vampire enjoyed the veneration (and the blood) of Kraków's pagan population, however, the city continues to expand and Christianity continues to grow despite her efforts. Jolanta grows more feral until, by the mid-16th century, she barely resembles anything human. In the midst of one of her frenzies, Jolanta falls prey to a roving Sabbat pack, who put her down in self-defense and then feast on her potent blood.
