Niveyah Russert was born in Boston to two socially prominent, politically active parents. Her father was an ambassador to Russia and her mother was Senator. As a young child Niveyah attended boarding schools with other children whose parents were never around. She knew they loved her, but the lack of connection with them led to Niveyah being a rather aloof and introverted child. It wasn’t until age nine, when she discovered ballet that she began to open up and become more confident. Niveyah studied dance with the conviction and dedication of a professional from a young age. Her only dream was to be a prima ballerina with a major company someday. She’d gotten her chance when she was 19. She’d auditioned for the Boston Ballet and secured a spot in the corp.
She quickly moved up through the corp until she was being given solo’s in almost every performance. The choreographer had taken a liking to her and they began an intense sexual affair that lasted more than 2 years. Niveyah thought they were in love and was certain that he was going to ask her to marry him. Sadly, during a performance while on tour in Europe Niveyah was terribly injured ending her dance career. The relationship between her and the choreographer began to become strained and she eventually caught him cheating on her with another dancer. At 21 Niveyah packed her bags and moved to New York where, thanks to her father’s connections, she entered law school.
It was in college that she developed her fascination for vampire lore. A friend convinced her to go to a frat party where she met some very interesting people who, through lengthy conversation, completely dispelled everything she’d ever heard or been told about the creatures. She began to read the things they suggested and so began her lifelong pursuit into the truth behind the legends. The more she learned, the more fascinated she became. She had a short lived but wild affair with one of the boys who swore he was born a vampire...though she didn't actually believe him.
Niveyah graduated with top honors and went on to practice law in a very prestigious firm. Soon she was winning cases and making a name for herself. She was on the track to becoming partner when her parents were killed along with a dozen or so other high profile names while on a humanitarian mission in the former soviet block. The authorities had sent the bodies – or what remained of them – back in sealed caskets with no real answers as to how they were killed or who had done it. There seemed to be little to no evidence left to lead them to the guilty parties. Niveyah had requested special permission to go over and investigate on her own, but was denied. She still searches for closure.
Her parents’ deaths left Niveyah with no living family. This affected her deeply and she began a slow decline into a deep depression that lasted for several month’s. When she finally came out of it, she had changed. She was more determined and dedicated than she’d ever been. She began receiving recognition for her take charge, no nonsense bulldog attitude when it came to her cases. The senior partners were impressed, until she ran afoul of one of their biggest clients. He was a wealthy man with lots of connections. He’d taken a fancy to Niveyah but she wasn’t interested. She knew he was a cruel man who liked to toy with women. When she discovered he had shady dealings with the Mob along with other disturbing facts that seemed to continually be covered up, she began to investigate further. As her investigation revealed more shady dealings, Niveyah began to get threats to her safety. When she went to her bosses with her information, she was told in no uncertain terms to drop it. As the weeks went by, and the death threats increased, it became clear that her bosses were not as clean as she thought they were. Several weeks after she began her investigation, she was escorted from the building by security. That night, while she was out with friends drowning her anger, her apartment was broken into.
Niveyah moved in with her friend the next day. Jen told her about a job opening she’d heard about through her boyfriend. It was in Vegas with a place called RpIT. She wasn’t quite sure what it stood for, but she knew she had to get out of New York and quick. She sent her letter and resume the next day. Within a week she was hired and was on her way to Vegas.
