Jill Stephanie Simmons

	Jill Simmons was one of the brightest, nortorious, and most determined
investigative reporters in your Chronicle city.  Regularly seen on
Channel 4 news, she was known to stick her nose into every scandal,
cover-up, and high-level police investigation she could find, much to the
chagrin of city hall, the police, and one or two private detectives.
She was already regularly barred on sight from crime scenes by the police
and was gaining a popular following among the city's TV viewers when her 
latest story became a little more than she barginned for.  She had begun 
to piece together seemingly unrelated incidents of street violence into 
what appeared to be a larger conspiracy.  Her probing took her right to 
the center of conspiracy's web.  Unforetuantely for Jill, she didn't 
count on finding a gang of vampires (Anarchs, of course) at that center.
	The real leaders of the gang weren't around when Jill was poking
around the anarch's main hangout in the Rack, so one of the gang (a VERY 
short-sighted thug) decided to Embrace her as a joke and leave her dumped 
in the alley.  Jill spent the next two days huddled in an abandoned 
building, trying to come to grips with what she had seen and what she had 
become.  By that time, she finally calmed down enough to decide that, 
despite the hunger that she was slowly beginning to feel, her vampirism 
didn't necessarily make her evil.  Maybe she could return to the
television station and show them what she had become.  The world had to
be alerted.  Vampires were real.
	Jill didn't make it out the front door.  The city's Brujah elders
found out about Jill's Embracing soon after it happened and frantically 
used every resource at their disposal to track her down before the 
Masquerade was irrevocably broken.  One or more of the Elders themselves 
met Jill at the door of the warehouse and convinced her to come with them.
The Elders attempted to Blood Bond her, but found to their horror that 
she was Unbondable.  She cannot simply be killed, as it would never go 
unnoticed.  Instead, they have opted to fully take her in and make her a 
member of Clan Brujah.  If they can instill clan loyalty and a love of 
her vampiric nature in her, then the Masquerade should be safe.  Until 
then, she is controlled through Dominate and Presence and watched VERY

*Roleplaying hints:  Picture your stereotypical driving, no-nonsense, 
get-the-story-at-all costs female investigative reporter (Randi from 
"Highlander: the series" is a good model).  She kowtows to no one, a 
trait that tends to put mortals she investigates off their guard and 
makes them nervous.  She is beginning to learn that the same tactics 
don't work as well on Kindred elders.

*Notes/Plot Hooks:
	-the Troupe's Brujah PC is..."asked" by the city's Brujah elders
to act as Jill's mentor.  She is to show Jill the ropes, keep her out of 
trouble, etc.
	-the party runs afoul of Jill before her Embrace.  How will they 
react when one of their greatest enemies in the media becomes one of them?
	-the party finds Jill just after her Embrace.  What will they do 
with her?
	-If Jill breaks away from the Elders, she will doubtlessly run to 
a witch-hunter (she'd be too afraid to reveal to the world as a whole
what she is).  With her media ties, Jill could be a most dangerous adversary.
	-some of Jill's media or police friends may get suspicious of her 
new nocturnal habits.  They may want to know where she was during those 
two days that she disappeared.  And they may want to know who those 
strange people she's always hanging around with are...
