Biography[edit | edit source]
Ramona Royale was a film actress who came to fame in the 1970s appearing in various low-budget "blaxploitation" action films. She attempted to improve her station by appearing in more serious fare, but no Hollywood producer was willing to give her a glance. A woman known as The Countess took note of Ramona and turned her into a vampire. Ramona and the Countess fell in love and were inseparable for several decades.
In the mid 1990s at the height of the East Coast/West Coast rap wars, Ramona fell in love with a hip-hop record producer named the Prophet Moses. The Countess was insanely jealous of this affair, and expressed her displeasure by shooting Moses in the head right before Ramona's eyes. Ramona then decided that she would avenge herself against the Countess no matter how long it took.
In 2015, Ramona was approached by another, younger vampire named Donovan. Donovan thought to make easy prey of Romana, but she quickly incapacitated him and brought him back to her home. She hooked him up to an IV to purge the impurities from his blood and then proceeded to tell him her life story. She decided that Donovan would be her instrument of revenge against the Countess.
