Rodica Lupei was an orphan child, raised with traveling folk and beggars. A thief only when necessary, and only ever for food, she was often a caregiver for other homeless, particularly the small children.

When she traveled to Romania she, among many others, became a victim to Prince Vlad III's solution to the homeless problem in 1458, and burned among many others. She would awaken, however, to a new life as an Immortal, alone and confused.

A drifter by nature, she fled the country, soon encountering Rebecca Horne. Rebecca would take her in, clothe her and teach her civility, as well as how to fight with a sword.

Rodica's mind was still not at peace, and Rebecca called for Willem Caelius, who in turn would take her under his wing for a number of years, educating her in the ways of religion and inner peace. In time what was student and teacher relationship became friends, and then more than friends.

In the present, Rodica Lupei lives a peaceful life in the Pacific Northwest, staying in touch with Willem. she is also mutual friends with Malej Senna Cavaco, the two often meet for sparring sessions.

Notes: She has heard firsthand Malej's belief that he is nearing a Dark Quickening and is greatly concerned, keeping her eye on him.

Her weapon is Raider Scimitar/Shamshir
