Fatimah al-Lam'a is a powerful Lasombra of Cairo. While technically antitribu, her connections to the Friends of the Night and alliances with powerful members of the clan – among them Zarathustra and the former autarkis Lucita – safeguard her against the Sabbat.
|“||We share the same condition, but not the same response. There is a real difference between pursuing Allah's will, pursuing your own self-interest, and pursuing a goal of total warfare and alienation from all that you once were. You have not chosen from a banquet of dishes all very much the same, but have given yourself to the most extreme opportunity short of total madness. Do not insult me with the idea that your choice means no more than mine.||”|
|— Fatimah al-Lam'a to Lucita|
Fatimah met her future sire in Tunis, where he watched her from the shadows as she grew into womanhood and fell in love with her. When Sharif moved south, he took Fatimah with him. Her own childe, however, would turn against her, slaying her beloved sire and taking up the Sabbat cause. Instead of breaking down or seeking revenge, Fatimah vowed to herself that should would uphold her sire's values, working both with and against the Sabbat, and allying herself with both the Camarilla and the Ashirra. Because of her influence, she was called into the Council of Prince Bey and remains one of the voices of coexistence, both religious and otherwise.
