Angelique was Embraced by Lazarus when he moved into Egypt, after he had killed Caias Koine and left his clan. It is said that he found her in a Coptic monastery as the sole survivor of a terrible plague. When Lazarus entered torpor, Angelique protected his body, maintaining a silent vigil over his torpid meditation.
When the Giovanni began to hunt their parent clan, she made an arrangement with Mukhtar Bey, the Prince of nearby Cairo, to expel the Giovanni from his domain. The Prince initially refused, but changed his mind after Angelique displayed her necromantic powers by raising the dead of his city to disturb the Masquerade. Bey granted Angelique a domain between Giza and Saqqara to appease her and in exchange to be alerted of any developments in the Underworld.
