The Beautiful and the Damned
Philippa Giovanni is an Independent-aligned member of Clan Giovanni. She and her twin brother Mauro were both Embraced by their great-uncle Vincenzio Giovanni. Philippa and Mauro often act as the Los Angeles Giovanni ambassadors to the younger members of the other clans, with Philippa leveraging her considerable social charms and access to her skills at necromancy to win favors, in balance with Mauro’s aura of barely-restrained violence.
Philippa and Mauro were visited by Cole Dolarhyde, Gaius Ferrán and Santi Clemente during the investigation into the murders of the neonates Hector Mendoza and Romina Villagracia. Offering assistance for a price, Philippa was able to use necromancy to summon the shade of Hector Mendoza and ply it for information that eventually lead to the capture of the hunters Mitchell Phillips, Shelly Alana, and Lev Belski. Accordingly, Dolarhyde, Ferrán and Clemente are now indebted to Philippa Giovanni until such time as the boon is repaid.
