Known Information

Cressida has an animalistic passion well suited to her House, and a personal reverence for Namaah that borders on clerical. Her talent with foreign dance, cultures, and tongues compares only to her familiarity with the body of d'Angeline passions.


Born one of six children, Cressida has three siblings in the Night Court, two in Jasmine and one in Mandrake, all brothers. One sister has chosen to take over the family import/export business, while the youngest of the family flits away her days as a socialite. Her father is a d'Angeline merchant, and her mother, Ashraqat, is an enigma chimera of many claimed origins. It is from her mother that Cressida inherited her mosaic of foreign features, and a good many of her tongues — though neither are particularly forthcoming about which ones.

Much of her life has been dedicated to Salon de la Glycine, and she lacks the familial detachment that many Courtesans undergo in being separated from their kin due to the number of her family in their ranks. Because of this, she sees the young novices as an extension of her family, and has expressed no desire to leave and form her own Salon. Instead, she seeks to bring great fame and fortune to the Salon de la Glycine, and the Jasmine wing in particular.
