Overview[edit | edit source]
Willa Burrell was the teenage daughter of Louisiana governor, Truman Burrell. A headstrong and opinionated young woman, she often voiced her opposition to her father's civil rights views concerning vampires. She was eventually made a vampire herself by Eric Northman - the first progeny he had created since Pam De Beaufort over a century earlier. Despite her relationship to the Governor, Willa was one of dozens of vampires rounded up and taken to a special concentration camp. However, she was segregated from the others, presumably for her own protection.
