Description: Sefika is slim and petite with brown hair, green eyes, and a bookish air about her. She is quiet, rarely drawing attention to herself, but when called upon to act, she does so decisively and well. Her mind is her great strength, but those who underestimate her in a fight do so at their own peril.
Sefika does not speak often of her background, but certain individuals have been able to piece together the following.
Sefika Sadik was born to Turkish immigrants in New York just after the turn of the 20th century. Her parents had moved to the United States when her older brother, Aydin Sadik, was an infant to escape the collapse of the Turkish economy. They lived in poverty until 1916 when Sefika's father Serhan was drafted and Sefika's uncle moved in to take care of the family.
At 20, Sefika joined the Children of Liberty, an anti-war organization, to protest America's involvement in the Great World War and follow in Aydin's footsteps. Her brilliant mind and dedicated nature helped her rise in the ranks, despite her gender, until she joined a subgroup of the Children of Liberty in 1924. It was there she met her sire, and 3 years later she was embraced.
Sefika trained privately with his sire for secret missions for this subgroup, and in 1931 she started traveling around the US, both to handle missions for this organization and to further her own studies within the Ordo Dracul. She was known to live in Philadelphia, San Franciso, Columbia, Austin, and Pittsburgh at various times, often time with periods back in New York in between. Even when she 'lived' in a city, she often left for weeks, sometimes months, at time on missions for her organization. Despite her intellectual and martial prowess, Sefika's quiet nature meant she was often overlooked in any city she lived in, with the exception Pittsburgh. She was fine with this.
In 2014, Sefika came to the city of Dark Ridge. What people would make of her presence was unknown, especially since her exceedingly competent brother and broodmate preceeded her arrival.
