Mirela Leopolo

"It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion
with nature than that of the Gypsy."
- Franz Liszt


xxxxxMirela grew up as a happy child within her family's kumpania traveling the roads of North America, listening to the stories of the elders who came from Europe. She was the baby of three, born six years after her twin brothers,Zindello and Pitivo. Zin is good with animals that travel with the family, while Piti handles the mechanics, not to mention the ladies. Showing a gift with alchemy and herbs, she was soon apprenticed to an aunt within the kumpania who began to teach her all that she needed to know for any potion she might want to make.


xxxxxGrowing up, Mirela knew of the leader of their kumpania, Rakash. He was their savior, or so the older ones said. A good man, someone to trust. He helped them in his ways. And they helped him in return. When she turned sixteen, she began to learn the truth of who and what he was, at least the basics, soon drawn into the inner circle and given the first level bond to him.

xxxxxWhen she was seventeen, she got involved with a few kids and ended up getting arrested. She was just along with the kids for the ride in a fancy car, or so she insists. The cops said she was an accessory to auto theft. She did a little time, some community service, and since then, left the town, the mark remaining on her record.


xxxxxThe kumpania came to Prospect, choosing to stop here for a while. They have set up outside of town, and are starting to let it be known that they are open to visitors. Need your fortune told? Perhaps a potion for love or wealth or health? One never knows what they might find for sell.

xxxxxThere have been a few changes around the kumpania. First, upon her eighteenth birthday, Mirela was taken as Rakash's ghoul, becoming his second over the camp. Still, she bows to the Elders in most things. However, soon after, Rakash left to tend to business, and has not returned, leaving Mirela and the Kumpania without their leader. Fate would step in one night, bringing Mirela across the path of Alaster. In one meeting, he would ascertain her need and strike a deal with her, and the Kumpania would gain a new benefactor.

xxxxxProving herself to be a trusted ghoul, just after the 2013 new year, Mirela was offered the choice by Alaster to become something more, and join him in the ranks of the Lasombra. Agreeing to this, she found herself embraced by him along with another on the same night. She was in the process of learning what it meant to no longer be mortal when a series of events led her to leave her Sire's home, and be placed under the eventual care of another Kindred to finish her fledgling lessons. She spent most of the time with her new mentor or back with her familia as she adjusted to this new way of life.


xxxxxAfter many weeks in the shadows, Mirela began to come out, to engage herself in the Praxis. She's been busy getting to know the various members, including even some within the Independents of Prospect. It was a surprise to some that the young fledgling, with the help of two others, managed to buy the Carnegie Theatre, and has been busy making what few changes to it she wished to see it continue within the city. For one of the Shadows, she has certainly stepped into the limelight, though it might be attributed to both her Ventrue mentor and Toredor co-owner.

  • Jacob Xander: Teacher. If there is anything I can say about this man is that I respect him. It is more than I can say for many these days. At least with him, I know exactly where I stand.
  • Brice Christian Godelieve: Gentleman. Such close friendship is not easy to come by beneath the moonlight, especially for those such as us. The beauty leaves us shadows trembling.
  • Stefan Leopolo: Cousin. I know he dislikes what I am now, but I do think we have managed to work things out to benefit us both.
  • Grace Gow: The star of the theater. Where her feet will take her, is anyone's guess, but I hope she remains here with us for a time yet.
  • Madeline Blanchard: For all the beauty you possess, you lack a true sense of what is right and wrong, of what is true caring and love. I had started to look up to you, to count you as friend, but no more.
  • Silvana Bethancourt Vega: It is strange the circling dance that life, even unlife, takes. I had hoped to get the chance to know you better. Perhaps I still will, but we shall see. Sorry to hear how things turned out between you and your.. husband.
  • Arya Wellington: I still barely know you, even after all that we went through together. I can only wish you well.


  • Rakash Leopolo: You are the moon at night, and an answer to a dream. I can only hope that you are not angry with me upon your return. I did what needed to be done to protect myself and the familia. It is whispered now that you are dead.
  • Lysander, the Ashen Knight: You have me quite confused. I am not certain what to think right now.
  • Alaster Armster III: You are gaje and I do not think you have ever understood me as you claimed to do. For all the promises made, in the end, I am better off without you, or them. There are times I truly wish I had never met you. Dead or gone, good riddance I do say.
  • Javier de Lavega: I barely know you, beyond the troubles that once were talked about. Briefly my teacher, it would seem it didn't work out after all, and I'm still not sure what happened. Gone away you are.
  • Varges: There are many things I could say about you, but I will say simply this: I am sorry for your pain and loss. I can understand it to some degree. I do not hold against you what was done to me. I hope you get beyond all this, and move forwards. And in moving forwards, you leave town.
  • Fletcher: I am curious of you and your independent ways, even more these days. Whatever I might learn from you, I will be honored to have done so. I owe you for the help given so graciously, though quiet and absent as you have been for some time.
  • Es: Ravnos. Romani. I wish I'd met him before all the craziness that my life has become. If anything, he is someone that I can perhaps trust to help me out. If nothing, there will be peace between our Kumpanias. Gone is he, or at least, not around as much as before.
  • Kell: Interesting one she is, what little I know of her. Perhaps one day soon, I will get to know her better.

RP Hooks
  • Fortune-Telling: Want to know what the cards say about your future? How about a glimpse in a crystal ball?
  • Potions: Need a love potion? How about one to make you stronger? Maybe something to help that ulcer? She knows who could help you with that.
  • Gypsy: Romani. Are you another looking for familiar sounds of home? A loner who might want to take up a little hospitality?
  • Performer: Dancer? Singer? Musician? She's not the best, but she can do her thing.
  • Linguistics: She speaks Romani, French, Spanish and German.
  • Out of Towner: Been here just over year or so, and yet still learning the city.
  • Vampire: Are you a guy who might not mind being picked up and fed on? Always looking for fresh blood to sip upon.

  • Enchanting Voice: Mirela can con the birds from the trees, or so it is said.
  • Oracular Ability: Sometimes there are signs and omens offered to those that pay attention. Mirela is one of those, and able to pick up on them. Maybe it's just a gut feeling.
