Born in the United States in 1890 she was embraced by a Malkavian Elder in 1916 after she was mortally wounded in a Zepplin bombing in England, who was her lover at the time, and inducted into the Camarilla shortly thereafter in London being twelve generations from Caine.
She has before that a career as an artists model, a writer of steampunk horror novels most quite risqué for the time and one recently made into a motion picture earning some accolades and a re-release of her books which pleases her and was and still is one of the most exquisite looking women one will see among the mortals and among vampires and the cause of her insanity. She simply revels in this which would be unseemly for most Kindred as a waste of time and well warps her personality she feels she is a gift to the world in her being in it, gracing it with her beauty and grace and is shallow now. That doesn't mean impractical when the Grand Prank happened she was unaffected and always was one of the most "sane" of her clan in any area the ones that run things and she does - in a manner of speaking - well she has parties to attend and clubbing to do and buying clothes and selecting the right look and trying her best to inspire mortals and immortals to admire her. That uses up an amount of her precious time.
She arrived in New York more recently and although built up a decent shallow domain however she did come with her personal fortune of funds from carefully made investments over the decades, so money does tend to open door and grease the mortal ex machina of their institutions to some degree helping her../spoiler]
