I suspect I'll end up with a female simply because all the decent pics I can find are feminine.
Waffling between many concepts atm, kinda need to flesh them all out and see which one works the best. (edit:updated)
1. Toreador Varangian 'nobility' with Byzantine polish, either fleeing something or seeking to carve out her own desmesne (or both)
2. Gangrel nearly feral nightmare-in-the-darkness, fun image but lacking much depth currently
3. Ventrue Christian missionary, the lone survivor of a group sent to convert heathens
Probably #1, I think.
