Catelyn Winters carries herself with a sense of pride and accomplishment, with her broad shoulders back and head slightly tilted upward. She wears heels to improve her already impressive height and shoulder pads to increase her physical presence. She keeps her hair up with sticks, never a strand out of place, and wears dark-framed glasses to impress on others her intelligence behind her blue eyes. Catelyn’s lipstick and make-up are always perfect.
Originally born Caitlyn Weiss in Vienna 1883, she was born into the burgeoning middle class of the era. Able to afford a education, her family enrolled her in school when she came of age, where she showed an early aptitude for mathematics and science. She would be one of the first women to graduate from the Ludwig-Maximillian University of Munich in 1906 with a Doctorate in Applied Mathemathics. Following graduation she worked with the likes of Madame Curie on the study of radiation and Hendrick Lorentz on the transitive properties of physics. Caitlyn was considered a rising star among her peers in the scientific community and was thought would eventually go on to do great things.
That all ended after her Embrace into Clan Tremere in 1909.
Looking to Embrace the brightest minds of the day, the clan found Caitlyn and recruited her into the fold. Suddenly there was an entire realm of knowledge that she had never had access to before. She threw herself in completely. She studied Kindred and Noddic lore for years upon years, becoming one of the foremost experts. She accomplished this by taking advantage of the First and Second World Wars. Vampire kind were not prepared for this new form of mechanized warfare that raged across Europe. Caitlyn followed the machine of war as it rolled through the forest and hills, raiding the havens of displaced elders for their riches and tomes. By the end of WWII Caitlyn had amassed vast wealth for herself and an entire library filled with Kindred lore.
Clan Tremere was thrilled with her initiative and forethought. They now had access to lost tomes from the Giovanni, Salubri, and even the long forgotten Capadocians. In 1947, with the war finally drawn down, Caitlyn was given her own Chantry to manage in Belgium. Her methods proved so efficient and effective the Tremere began to send her from Chantry to Chantry, putting the houses in order. On her own time, Caitlyn established a rare book business with franchises in Belgium, Paris, Oxford, Manchester, and finally, at her most recent assignment, Atlanta, GA.
