Karin was the daughter of a scottish noble who was never happy with his own possessions. Disappointed that his only child was a female, he nonetheless made the best of a bad situation, training the young girl in the subtle nuances of courtly life. By the time Karin reached marriageable age, she was attractive enough to be considered a prize by the saxon nobility of England.
Her beauty hid and ugly cunning, however, and she positioned herself to assume the mantle of ruler immediately after she married, denying her dumbfounded father any possible benefit he may have gleaned. Though she suffered some pangs of guilt and remorse at her father's betrayal, Karin knew that her own desires must come first, and she took to political life with remarkable ease.
Wher her embrace came, she saw it as a gift (although te long years have colored her vision differently), giving Karin ever greater skill and acumen. Her talent was recognized by her own clanmates, and Karin was made advisor to the Prince of Nottingham, Robin Leeland - as well as very good friend of the deadly Patricia of Bollingbroke - and while she was either diablerised in 1197 by the Earl of Galtre, or destroyed by Remus, it should be noted that anyone that would do her harm would also incur in the eternal enmity of both Leeland and Patricia of Bollingbroke.
Interesting that despite friendship between Karin and Bollingbroke, Patricia was embraced after 184 years that have passed since Karin's death.
