Story: Persephone was the personal bodyguard for the Blood Queen, when Prince Drakken of the House of Thom made an attempt at becoming the new ruler of the Vampire Nation [1]. Drakken didn't succeed in killing the Blood Queen, but he did manage to get the power he wanted [2]. The takeover did not go smoothly. Armand Waering and his tribe along with WetWorks attacked Drakken, but in the end Drakken won, and the Blood Queen went into exile, taking Persephone with her [3].

Free from her obligations, Dragoness along with Persephone roamed the streets for a while. It wasn't what Dragoness wanted, and soon she began to make plans for going home to her motherland [4]. Back with her father at the place called Nighthold, Dragoness wanted to go back to take back the position that Drakken had taken away from her, but Lord Dominus had other plans and wanted to kill all the vampires that were not true vampires [5]. Dragoness could see that this was wrong and arranged for WetWorks and her brother Johnny Savoy to help her stop him [6]. Her army, led by Raithan attacked Lord Dominus and in a joint effort, she, Savoy and WetWorks succeeded in killing Lord Dominus and save the Vampire Nation. Persephone being the Dragoness bodyguard was part of this, all the way [7].

The next time Persephone was seen she was a freelance operative for assassinations, corporate espionage and whatever else she could make a profit from. Somewhere along the line, she developed a drug habit, which forced her to continue in this line of work. The drug suppressed her bloodlust, making her able to control herself all the time, but it was highly addictive. She did this for a while, until Jackson Dane contacted her, inviting her to be a WetWorks operative in the war with a group of vampires [8].

Skills & abilities: Persephone is a highly skilled fighter with the enhanced speed, strength and other abilities and limitations inherent in vampires.
