Evelyn, the Covetous, is a vampire rogue of the Maestros family in New Capenna.


Persisting is the dream for so many, and an elite few are carved into the polished stone of the city with an unforgettable moniker. But a few were there before the "new" of New Capenna, such as the second of the Maestros - and the second vampire - Evelyn, the Covetous.[1]


Few people in New Capenna remember the old world. There are some of the especially aged sphinxes in the Obscura and a handful of wizened rhox among the reveling ranks of the Cabaretti who were there in the early days. The Maestros boast the greatest complement of long-lived members — easy enough when they lay claim to Xander's gift of vampirism — but most of them, too, were made after the shining tower of New Capenna was raised. No, the true old guard is vanishingly small: the heads of the five families, and Evelyn.[2]

Once, she called Lord Xander a lover - but that was lifetimes and passions ago. The first to receive the gift of vampirism from Xander, Evelyn still remembers the old days of Old Capenna, what the world was like before it was emptied. In the time since, she has lived many lives, but through them all, she has collected and maintained a sprawling private collection of artifacts from the old world. Her expertise is such that she is one of the only people besides Lord Xander himself to have access to his private archives.[3]

Polite and generous, accommodating to young Maestros — they're all young to her — and initiates to the family, Evelyn is nonetheless not one to be underestimated. She may be a collector, but she was a killer first, and any life less than her own is a life that can be cheaply spent...
