Dresden Files: Twin Cities
An Ambitious Lawyer and Red Court Vampire in the Ortega Banking Cartel
Susana Therasia Ysabel Valencia handles Carlos Ortega’s day to day business operations in both the mortal world and the supernatural world. She also takes the lead on more clandestine operations. Very few people get to meet directly with Ortega and before they do, they are screened by Susana. Legal Authorities of the mortal world have had a difficult time in charging her for criminal activities because of her effectiveness as a lawyer and she has become untouchable through legal channels. Susana is known to go for the throat, literally, and has inherited all of her progenitor’s proclivity towards torturing and toying with someone before destroying them.
Nobody ever taught her that it’s not nice to play with your food.
