Calla is a real people person, and not just because she occasionally eats them. She cultivates friendships in high places and low, relishes being part of the scene, and is eager to help out in any way she can. She hates how her fellow vampires treat mortals like animals, and tries to help herself and others find alternatives to hunting; she often works in blood banks, using her knowledge of death to treat disease while embezzling blood for herself and like-minded vamps. She overcompensates for her monstrous nature by being a bit of a goody-two-shoes, though she’s happy to bend the rules to get things done.
She came to the world as an emissary of the city of Gloomwrought. She learned to channel her shadow magic into her music in this dark city in the Shadowfell, where she spent most of her afterlife singing requiems in the temple of Erathis (as a vamp, she’s kinda scared of the Raven Queen). One of the city’s dark lords has sent her to the world to find new allies for Gloomwrought, which she believes she’s doing by being helpful and accumulating favors. Her patron says there is a threat to Gloomwrought – perhaps to the entire Shadowfell or the afterlife itself – that they’ll need the help of the living to defeat.
