Marianna is 6th-generation Cappadocian, likely the last to have been Embraced by the Giovanni when they were still a bloodline of their parent clan. A childe of Claudius who bears immense hatred for her sire's lineage, she has dedicated her unlife to the destruction of the Giovanni.
In life, Marianna was an 18-year-old peasant girl selected to be the meal for a dinner party hosted by Claudius Giovanni and 12 other Kindred lords. But during the meal, Claudius’s castle was attacked by a cavalry of troops lead by his enemy, Hardestadt. In a panic, Claudius embraced Marianna to have her distract the soldiers while he made his escape. She is one of the select few Giovanni vampires who were not members of the Giovanni family in life.
After her Embrace, the surviving members of the Cappadocian clan took her in and gave her shelter. She stayed with them for a short time, where they taught her a basic knowledge of her disciplines. Marianna finds being a vampire a shameful thing. Each morning she falls asleep weeping tears of blood. She prefers to have nothing to do with her fellow “brothers and sisters in shame,” instead working alone, but she is very lonely.
Marianna is being watched over by the spirit of the dead Cappadocius. At times, she can sense his fatherly presence. He is guiding her destiny. She is his instrument of vengeance. As such, Marianna was compelled to find the mountain fortress, Erciyes, the former stronghold of the Cappadocians and haven of Cappadocius. There she found Cappadocius’s secret arcane library. Studying his tomes, she has learned necromantic secrets the Giovanni don’t even know – becoming one of the leading experts (albeit in secret) in Necromancy.
The childe of Claudius is one of the most dangerous enemies of her own clan, and over the centuries has killed many important Necromancers and highly placed clan members. Augustus Giovanni have spent a fortune trying to find and kill her, but to no avail. Marianna has a lot of hatred for the Giovanni and has dedicated her unlife to their destruction.
She is a slim, beautiful woman with flame red hair. To see her is like seeing an avatar of anguish. She has made a costly pact with a Wraith ally, allowing her to escape death by traveling into the Shadowlands.
