Monica

From City of Hope

Introduction
Monica is a relative newcomer to Prospect. Hailing from the Sandhill sept based fifty miles south of Madison, WI (herself a Madison native), she arrived in the city as a Cliath under the Rite name Tarachi.

Just two months in, she moved on to the rank of Fostern, and took a new name: Keres. It took surprisingly little time after this promotion to find herself again raised in rank, and, upon the completion of her Adren challenge, was appointed the Alpha of Last Call, a pack patroned by Fox.

To anyone within the Garou, this progression should sound pretty typical. In most cases, it is. In her case, her age is liable to raise some questions. Quite a bit older than your typical newly-minted Adren (at least locally), it's unknown (to most) if her rank is the result of having experienced her First Change late in life, or something else entirely. Unsurprisingly, she's not all that eager to talk about it.

As for how typical it is to have a Ragabash take the mantle of Alpha? Well. Doesn't happen *often*, sure, but given who the Totem is, it's not *quite* as surprising (or ridiculous) as it sounds.

Stereotypes
Kinfolk I've spent more of my time with Kin than I have with most of my 'sisters.' It's been my experience that they don't get nearly enough recognition for what they do, what they offer, and what sacrifices they've had to make to help out.
Fera Dealt with plenty of Corax and Ratkin in the past, most of them pleasant enough. Even managed to sit and chat with a couple Pumonca, here and there. Other than that? Not a whole lot of 'em wandering around in Wisconsin, so-- haven't met enough of them to form an opinion. Here, I'm hoping to change that.
Mages The warpers? I know a few of the good ones. Otherwise, I don't bother them, and, for the most part, they don't bother me. They've got their own problems, just like we've got ours. In the end, it's better to just leave them to it. (Though I'll hardly say 'no' to working with ones we know are our allies.)
Vampires I'll go against the grain a little here and say they can make for decent allies if you share a common enemy, but I wouldn't recommend walking up to one and offering a truce. If it happens, it happens. Just be sure to have the upper hand when it comes time to part ways; something you can hang over their head that'll keep all that 'good will' intact.

Contacts
Alecto You were the first to welcome me to Prospect and call me 'sister,' and the first to kick my ass into gear. At the risk of sounding mushy, it's hard to put into words what that means.
Andy You got me out of one hell of a scrape; could've talked shit, but you didn't, even if you had every reason in the world to see me take a dive. You ever need something, you call me.
Annie I'd say I've proven by now that you can trust me, but that's probably besides the point. You'll come to me when you need to. My door's always open.
Billy Still think it's a bummer that we never ended up packing together, but I'm happy that you ended up where you did, and I'm always thrilled to hear about your progress. If you ever need to talk, you know where to find me.
Bronwyn I'd say 'never change' if I thought you wouldn't take offense to it. Think I'll just stick with 'defies description.' The rest... Well. We can talk about that later~. At your place, though. I'm pretty sure you'd light mine on fire.
Charlene Didn't have the highest opinion of you when I first got here for a lot of dumb reasons. Think I speak for both of us when I say I'm glad we got a chance to sort that out.
Dex I meant what I said at the diner, that it was supposed to be a compliment. I'll make it up to you, though. Promise.
Felix Never thought I'd have the privilege of calling someone my second in command. When you dropped by for a short-term job, if someone had told me then that it'd end up being you, I'd've never believed it, either, but-- couldn't be happier that it ended up that way.
Furio I get the feeling sometimes that you talk people in circles solely so you can remind them that you have something to contribute. I've been trying to figure out a way to let you know that it's not necessary.
Giselle You're the only person I can think of who could start a meth lab in the basement, claim it's for some esoteric research, and actually get away with it.
Jake Haven't really had a chance to sit and talk with you lately, which is a shame, but~ I hear you have your hands full, and I'd really hate to interrupt~
Jasen Sorry about that whole, uh... 'vision' thing. I mean, sure, all right, it's not entirely my fault, but when you factor in all that other stuff...
Journey There are times I think you look at me and see someone who's two(/three/four) cans shy of a six pack. Not entirely sure how to feel about that, but, well. You do you, I guess.
Kisa Every time I think I've got a handle on you, you switch things up on me. You're a curiosity, wrapped in an enigma, spritzed with expensive perfume, and offered up with a side of intrigue. Or, at least, that's how you'd like to be seen. Not that I have any complaints. As looks go, this one suits you.
Lydia Listen up, and listen good, because this is Sister to Sister, not just sister to sister, you get me? You don't get to use your sexuality as a shield against being called out for bad behavior. You don't get to willfully misinterpret what's being said, and turn the conversation around to something it's not to win favor. You don't get to do that. Period. End of story. I know what that kind of persecution looks like, I know what it's like to live through it, and this is not it. Until you can figure that out, you don't deserve my respect.
Mae It's strange to be in this situation, considering we haven't had much chance to get to know one another, but-- I trust our patron, and I'm pleased to call you sister.
Percy This goes to eleven.
Raven I'm-- honestly not sure if there's anything to say about this. ...Or maybe I'm just overthinking things (again).
Sebastien Still wanna know why introducing you to the Carol Burnett Show signals the End of Days, but I guess I'll find out eventually.

RP Hooks
Black Stag Forge
Monica does the general managerial/clerical/financial work around the Forge. If you're an incoming blacksmith, or a client, chances are, you'll be talking to her (either by phone, or in person).

Information Trade

Monica's clearly got some ties in the information trade. She isn't very open about what those are, but if someone happens to run in those particular circles, there's a good chance that they'll cross paths with her (and/or one of her many aliases).

Pentex

Anything and everything having to do with the entity (and its subsidiaries) is extremely her jam.

Sisterhood

Relevant to 'Information Trade,' but is its own separate thing. Members of the Black Fury tribe, or the Bone Gnawer Rat Finks camp, are likely to have heard that she's a member of this camp. As such, she has access to items and intel that she's willing to barter with in exchange for other goods and services (though a good chunk of it is free of charge, in the interests of maintaining good relations). If someone outside of these two groups requests Sisterhood expertise, they should expect to cough up some collateral (or to be greeted with a blank stare).
