* Therese's name probably comes from "Millicent and Therese," the second story of the 1975 horror film [[Wikipedia:Trilogy of Terror|Trilogy of Terror]]. Karen Black portrays two sisters: Millicent, a repressed brunette, and Therese, a seductive blonde. Millicent endeavors to kill Therese and succeeds, but both sisters end up dead, as they were both alternate personalities of the same person. Therese had slept with her father and killed her mother, and Millicent was a personality constructed to cope with the horror of her actions. Her father's recent death had triggered the murder attempt as a form of suicide. While the Therese of this story does more closely resemble ''Bloodlines'' Jeanette, it does support the idea that Therese was the sisters' original personality.

* It is believed that of the two sisters, Therese was the original and primary personality, her alternate persona "Jeanette" having been created as an means to deal with the long-reaching consequences of the sexual abuse Therese's father inflicted on her when she was a child. An attempt is implied to have been made to cure her of her Dissociative Identity Disorder in the past, but Therese makes references to [[Embrace (VTM)|Embracing]] her alternate persona in order to include her in [[Kindred (VTM)|Kindred]] life as well (though Therese has a fervently puritanical attitude towards sex, she insists that her father did nothing wrong, while hard-partying Jeanette acknowledges the abuse and its depravity). However, it is possible that none of these scenarios ever occurred, and that they are merely the delusions of the Malkavian condition.

* Another theory is that  in life Therese had real sister, who might have been killed by her alongside the father.

* Another theory is that [[Jeanette Voerman|Jeanette]] was Therese's real sister, and might have been killed by her alongside the father.
 
* In the book [[Beckett's Jyhad Diary]], it is heavily implied that [[Jacob (Malkavian)|Jacob/Esau]] -- another Malkavian with multiple personalities -- is the [[sire]] of Therese/[[Jeanette Voerman]]. Jacob claims that he Embraced one sister while Esau Embraced the other, while Therese implies that she Embraced her own sister.<ref name="bjd14">{{b|V20|Beckett's Jyhad Diary|page=14}}</ref>
