Sheila Vandenbroek / Count de Glacszealin
Sheila Vandenbroek works in finance, where she is constantly surrounded by douchebros. The original founder of the coterie, she is rational, hard-headed, and (despite what Jefferson would like to believe), she’s in charge. She LARPs to experience what it would be like if the world treated her the way it treats her (wealthy, upper class white dude) boss. Thanks to her banker salary, Sheila is the wealthiest person at the LARP, which is reflected in how her real-world costume looks the most like the costume of her in-game alter ego, because she can afford to really create the bells and whistles. She also can afford touches like dry-clean-only pauldrons. Sheila’s personal hygiene is unimpeachable, because it gives her a sense of control in a world full of macho-addled dickheads.
The Count de Glacszealin is a vampire who hails from ancient Polish nobility, and looks weirdly like Sheila’s (wealthy, upper class white dude) boss. The Pale Ones have ruled the city since time immemorial, though the new Doge threatens their power base. The Count cooperates with non-vampires only when they are loyal to his cause, and defer to his every whim.
