Apparent age:



Brujah antitribu




Former Bishop of New York City

Ecaterina the Wise, the Agitator of Prague, later known as Katherine Weise, is a notorious Brujah rabble-rouser. She has spread false rumours that she is a survivor of Carthage. She was originally an eighth generation vampire, but committed diablerie in the late 20th century.


Over eight centuries ago, Ecaterina was Embraced in Prague, following her near-rape at the hands of a pair of Ventrue-paid mercenaries. The mercenaries both met their just ends, but not before shattering Ecaterina's jaw as she tried to resist them. Marthuel did what he could to repair the damage, but medicine at the time was spotty at best. Childe of Marhuel and grandchilde of Dominic, she was active among the Prometheans of Transylvania during the Dark Ages.

By the time of the Anarch Revolt, she joined with the Anarchs and later the Sabbat. She eventually became the first Bishop of New York City, although she later fell under the authority of Archbishop Francisco Domingo de Polonia.

She was driven into torpor in the mid-20th century, and did not awaken until after the Camarilla conquest of New York in 1999. In recent night she is known as Katherine Weise, and masks her true identity and history from her new Camarilla sectmates.[2]


Ecaterina appeared in the game Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption, in which she was the sire of the game's protagonist, Christof Romuald. In that occasion her character was voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.

Her tendency to cover her disfigured jaw except when feeding is very similar to Raziel from the Legacy of Kain games.

  1. The year of Ecaterina's Embrace is given as 1155 in Transylvania by Night (p. 64). However, she also appeared as a powerful Kindred in the game Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption, which was set in 1141 according to the game's opening cinematic. The game's timeline presents several such inconsistencies with both in-setting and real-world history, so Transylvania by Night is probably more accurate.
