Damsel is a character in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. She is a Brujah vampire, and member of the Anarch Movement, based in Downtown L.A.


Early life

Not much is known about her past. All that is known is that she has a deep seated hatred for Sebastian LaCroix and his sect.

Events of Bloodlines

Damsel is present at the protagonist's "welcome" to Kindred society and the execution of their sire, sat with her fellow Anarchs Nines Rodriguez and Skelter. Afterwards, she is seen talking to fellow Anarch Ash Rivers.

Personality and Traits

Damsel is aggressive and passionate, both trademark Brujah traits. She can come across as annoying to others but she is well respected by some of her fellow Anarchs. Her passion comes across in her hatred for the Camarilla and her faith in Anarch values. She refers to the Camarilla elders with the term "cape", like other Anarchs do. She is not above praising other people, but only after they prove themselves worthy.
