Allison was originally just one of the thousands of runaways who throng the streets of Hollywood every night. She had fled her home in Northern California at the age of 14 to escape an abusive father and alcoholic mother. By the time she was 15 she was a professional hooker, working along Sunset and Western. One night, straying far afield, she dropped into A Taste of L.A.
A powerful Brujah named Caska, on the run and new to L.A., saw her and invited her out into the alley behind the bar for some “fun.” Unfortunately, Caska had been a fugitive too long and was running too close to the edge. At the smell of Allison’s warm blood pounding through her veins, he frenzied. The last sight Allison saw as a mortal was Caska‘s huge fangs, glistening with her blood.
When she woke up she saw a small dark man crouched over her. Caska was lying in a heap nearby. Salvador had arrived too late to stop the attack, but he didn’t believe Allison should die because some pinhead had forgotten the rules and lost control. He offered her the chance to live forever, and she grabbed at it. Allison settled into her life at the Taste very comfortably, even making friends with Caska. No one acted more surprised than she when he turned up one morning, staked to a dumpster in the alley behind the Taste.
At first Salvador kept Allison close and tried to instill his revolutionary fervor in her, but she was a practical girl with ambitions of her own. She used her position at the Taste to recruit a small gang of newcomers, and then looked around for an area to move in on. The Baron of Anaheim had recently lost several retainers in a raid on Long Beach, and so was vulnerable. Allison attacked, in one night slaughtering the baron and most of his remaining gang, only to discover that Tom Weaver and his boys were moving in at the same time. It took over a year for her to finally defeat Weaver, though she is now seriously weakened and open to attack by other ambitious Anarchs.
Salvador grieves for his lost initiate but, true to his own philosophy, he has made no effort to change her ways.
