Final Death:



Toreador antitribu






Rosa Martinez


Regent of the Sabbat

Melinda Galbraith was an elder childe of the methuselah Helena and the recent Regent of the Sabbat.


Melinda Galraith was considered to be one of the most dangerous vampires in the world, notorious for her cruelty. She was a stunning woman with dark brown hair and hazel eyes and was always dressed in the finest clothes money can buy.

Melinda was born in Spain. In life, she was a slave and hated being a slave but was captured and forced to leave Europe by Helena.

Helena embraced Melinda in 1143. Together they traveled to Mexico with the Conquistadores, where they waged war against the Aztecs. Then without a word of warning Helena abandoned Melinda. After that the Sabbat came, and Melinda joined them eagerly, as it helped her break the blood bond that held her in Helena's thrall.

Melinda became Regent after winning the Monomacy against former Regent Gorchist, then diablerizing him in 1933. Although she was a Toreador antitribu, many in the sect believed her to be a Lasombra like her predecessors. She is a follower of the Status Quo faction and it was believed she was on the Path of Caine.

Before a Palla Grande in 2000 she was slain by unknown parties, and was impersonated for a time by the Tzimisce Zachary Sikorsky, who discovered her remains and was afraid of being framed for her murder.
