Personality and interests

Joelle is outgoing and inquisitive, she asks questions and listens intently. She isn't the attention seeker or rabble rouser that many in her clan tend to embrace more than necessary. She is patient when dealing with the unfortunate, but anxious and agitated at every minute she has to wait for a government agent to assist her.


Born in 1935, Joelle grew up in New Orleans; living on the wrong side of the canal. Growing up in poverty, she would hang outside of the resorts (clubs) listening to the Jazz, Blues, and Ragtime concerts. She grew up went to Howard University in 1953 to major in law. Eight years of college life, she returned to her home in time for the Civil Rights Movement to heighten. Protests, resistance, and several arrests earned credibility in the anarch community, which garnered the attention of Malcolm Simms, former black panther activist who practiced a more combative style of protest. One evening following a major race riot, Joelle was assaulted by several white men who severely beat her. Malcolm arrived to rescue her, but her condition was fatal, the senior Brujah chose to embrace her knowing her existence for the future was important. The two spent the next four years as teacher/student before she was allowed to move on her own, Malcolm just disappeared for several years, now visiting on occasion.

When the war for New Orleans took place; Joelle stood with the other independent Brujah, but as the battles continued and watching how each faction ruled their areas decided the Camarilla offered a more stable environment.
