Nadia has altered herself heavily through the use of Viccissitude to make herself beautiful yet uncanny at the same time. Her skin is chalk white with a network of bluish veins visible beneath her skin. Her eyes are black and a tad too large to look human. Most bizarre of all, she has grafted on a second set of arms, making her look like some sort of gothic Hindu goddess. All her arms end in eerily long black nails. Her hair varies in length but is almost always jet black and silky. When needing to hide her true nature from mortals, she uses Obfuscate to appear much she did in life: a young and attractive brunette.
Nadia was just an innocent and pious young Romanian woman before Bogdan Iancu turned his gaze upon her from the shadows. To her, he saw a naive girl he could corrupt and twist into a truly passionate monster. He only partially succeeded, as she turned out to be more passionate than fiendish. Tiring of her, Bogdan cast her out of his pack. To her, it wasn’t much of a loss. She eventually joined a nomadic pack before coming to Detroit and starting one of her own: The Scarlet Lemures. She rose to become a Bishop. Nadia and her pack are now the main group of Cathari in Detroit and keep a watchful eye over over all forms of adult entertainment in the city. They are considering expanding into the illegal drug market, as well. She has an almost Toreador-esque interest in beauty and a disdain for those she considers “uninspired” or “boring”. Pity the mortals caught in her path. Nadia won’t simply kill them. She prefers to corrupt and degrade them, dragging them through depravity and then abandoning them to live in shame and longing.
Archbishop Santana and Bishop Jovanovic are known to be lovers who share blood frequently. However, they are by no means exclusive to each other and frequently take other paramours into their private chambers for a tryst.
UPDATE: The Final Death of Bishop Nadia Jovanovic
Shortly after dawn’s light on Nov. 5, 1992, Bishop Jovanovic and her Scarlet Lemures pack were ruthlessly slaughtered by a pack of lupines. Nadia herself was taken from her haven and cruelly thrust into the sunlight to burn to ashes. Her ashes were then rearranged to spell out the phrase “Dawn is coming.” The werewolf pack believed responsible had been seen inside The Void the previous evening but Edward “Eddie” Deschain and James R. Smith failed to apprehend any of the them, two of the beasts seemingly appearing out of thin air to aid the escape of their comrade.
“It is with great grief and sadness that we honor the unlife and swear to avenge the final death of Bishop Nadia Jovanovic. We commend our fair sister to eternity and issue a warning to Hell: Make way and prepare an exquisite suite of rooms…for a vampiress of uncommon grace and fury comes to claim part of your domain as her own.”-Archbishop Diego Santana
