Introduction
"You don't figure out how to fit twenty clowns into a VW Bug without learning a little something about life."
Lorelei's father and mother met working in a travelling three ring circus. He was the strong man, she was the equestrienne acrobat. They fell in love, they got married, they had Lorelei... and they never left the circus. Born Laura Jean Vassiliades, she had a mostly happy childhood, though it was plagued by a severe seizure condition. As she grew older it became more severe, and specialists in both Western and more esoteric forms of medicine were sought out to no avail. If anything, any attempts to treat her only caused worse issues, some life threatening. When she was 14 she put her foot down... no more medical intervention. She woud rather die young living her own life as she chooses than live longer as a victim of a broken and imperfect body.
At 18, she ran away from the circus, finding in to be too restrictive. She travelled the world, surfed couches, slept on the street, busked for spare change, took on short term jobs here, there, and everywhere. Always feeling driven forward by some internal force she cannot explain. She fell in love, desperate, terrible, wholehearted love that blew up (quite literally) in her face, leaving her once more 'alone'. So she started anew in Prospect, and has found a new home, a new life, one that is hopefully not quite so likely to go KERBLOOIE.

Stereotypes
The Others
Vampire "I have a difficult time believing such things could exist. But well, if the folklore means anything, what a sad existence. What good is immortality without the sun, without LIFE. And having to watch people you love fade and die while you go on? Excruciating."
Werewolf "Isn't that taking the whole furry thing a little far?"
Wraith "Of course I believe in ghosts. I've seen them. There is something in each of us that goes on beyond our body, and Im sure that many would choose to stay here than go on to some unknown eternity."
Changeling "Dreams are beautiful things. Some are more beautiful than others."
Mage "People are capable of more than they can imagine, of course."
Demon "Have you read" the bible? YHVH is an abusive parent, and in my opinion, any of his children who escaped were lucky, and if they rebelled, they were brave."

Contacts
Hawthorne "He's arrogant, superior, bossy, impulsive, and difficult. He is also generous, sweet, broken, passionate, and astounding. I love him, now and for always."
Chrissy "If there is proof that the world is all in all a wonderful place and good on the whole of it, I would find it in this. The world brought you back to me. I adore you, and if I have my way, you'll not be alone again."
Roxy "Of course I take you back. You were never gone from my heart. I hope that with me you can find some healing. I know that in me, you will always find love."
Gar "It's no secret that I'm sweet on you. I can't thank you enough for being so patient, so understanding, and so lovely."
Savannah "You're a person worthy of care and aid. You're also a dear friend."
Dyson "I like my boss, but... there's a wall there. And I'm not willing to take the jackhammer to it because..."
Alala "...I also like my bosslady, and she would take said jackhammer TO MY SPLEEN."
Garan "I'm not quite sure why you had to have me for an employee, but I appreciate your trust and faith. Seriously though, you need to lighten up."
Chance "I like you, you've admitted to needing to learn. Just remember, you don't have the right to make decisions for anyone else."

Palms read, cards shuffled, crystal balls peered into. Hey, even if you don't believe in such things, it's a cheap and effective form of counselling.
