Gloria was a smart gang girl, desperate to leave behind the misery of the barrio in which she had been raised. One night, as she was walking home, a car pulled up and the ugliest man she had ever seen stuck his head out and beckoned to her. At first she wanted to run away, but there was something about his eyes that she found impossible to resist. She got into the car with him, and drove away.
One week later Gloria tracked Salvador to his sequestered hideaway. There she confronted the vampire, and told him that she had figured out what was going on. Gloria offered him a choice: he could either make her a vampire or kill her then and there. Impressed by her bravado, Salvador agreed to initiate her into the unlife. She rapidly became accustomed to her new powers, and Salvador showed her how to use them to protect and defend her community rather than escape from it. With his help, she managed to gain control of the Kindred gang that had ruled Whittier for several years.
