Octavia exemplifies Brazilian beauty, taking the best traits of several races and melding them into one stunning whole. She is 5'9" and has the build of a model. Curly, shoulder-length dark-brown hair falls in lush waves over her cafe au lait shoulders and chiseled face. The flash of her dark eyes is enough to melt most viewers - though, if she wishes, her stare can also paralyze people with terror.
She is usually seen in elegant evening wear. In her spider-hybrid and giant spider forms, Octavia is brightly colored in patterns of red, emerald and black. She is a familiar sight on Rio's night streets and club circuit. Many vampires have seen her in passing, though few have spoken to her. Most presume the beauteous siren to be Toreador or perhaps Caitiff.
In truth, Octavia is an Ananasi: a spider shapeshifter, related to the Lupines. Born in the Brazilian jungles, Octavia came to Rio years ago and was delighted by the whirling carnival of city life. Her delight grew when she discovered she had Kinfolk in the city. Now Octavia nests at the center of a web of excess; she is surrounded by adoring mortals and devoted Kinfolk, all of whom would do anything for the pleasure of giving their blood to her.
Octavia is intrigued by Rio's vampires, fellow hemovores, and observes them from afar. Of late her playful curiosity regarding the taste of vampire blood has grown.

Notes: this character sheet is adapted for Vampire: The Masquerade. The Ananasi are fully detailed in Werewolf: The Apocalypse; if you are familiar with the scenario, replace Octavia's Disciplines with appropriate Gifts and Rites. She can assume a variety of forms: Homid (human), Lilian (bipedal, six-armed spiderwoman; Pithus (giant spider, complete with poisonous bite), and Crawlerling (a mass of tiny spiders - cannot attack, but is virtually indestructible). Octavia, as a blood-drinker, has a Blood Pool of 10 and can spend blood just as vampires can.
