Character Information


La Rapide is a Banshee with a whip and a tendency towards sadism.


Find love again to fill the void in her heart, but she hasn't found the right person yet. She completely fell in love with Vibrato, and he returns it. - "Now I just need to not lose him again..." Fuck him.

Build a home for herself and the wolves in Brittany. - "Maybe an old manor in a forest southwest of Rennes would be nice." It's not a manor, but it's nice out here.

Get more in touch with the beast inside her. - "There's no use in fighting it, so I would much rather cooperate with... myself." I think I'm more in tune with myself now, but now the hunger is starting to be a real problem, maybe it was a mistake.

The hunters are out there and she is scared. The only way to not die is to be better than them - "...and dying is not an option."

Serve Queen Elizabeth XXIII, until the end of time and beyond. - "God save the Queen"


Clairise Grenouillie was born on March the 1st 2017 in Paris. She had a lovely and easy live with her Parents in a small apartment in the outskirts of Paris. The dawn of downfall was the 19th May 2037, Clairise meet a guy named Charles Bonsoir. She fell in love with him and a year later they moved together. In the "night" from the 15th to the 17th December 2039 she found out about the true nature of her boyfriend, he was a banshee. 2 monthes later, he turned her, after she decided to do so. He helped her lessen her hunger after she woke up. He taught her all the things he knew, and they continued living together. On the 13th June 2045 there was a big fight between Clairise, Charles and another Vampire, and a team of hunters. Charles was impaled with a bunch of silver crossbow bolts and died shortly after all the hunters were murdered. Clairise burned his corps and then got on board the next ship towards the UCAS, where she eventually settled in Seattle in 2046. She started a new life in the shadows under the name of Claire Amare or "La Rapide". She became friend with a few other infected individuals, and started a career as a Shadowrunner.

Life Style

la Rapide has two Lifestyles. One is her regular one in Seattle, while the other one is a very secluded one in the forests of Brittany. At the start of the run I decide where she is currently at. If you as a GM do not want to have complications from her starting in France, then just tell me to start in Seattle.

The Lifestyle in France has the Haunted quality, so you may have fun with that. The most likely things making trouble are critters, especially para critters, and fae. Shadow spirits could also come around, but toxic ones are pretty unlikely to be found in the middle of Brittany.

Narrative Significant Qualities

'SURGE' (Virus Mutation: Biosonar, Keen Eared, Thermal Sensitivity, Vomeronasal Organ; Impaired Att (Log), Nocturnal) - The virus inside her mutated, triggered by an aurora, which enhanced her predatory capabilities, but also pushed her deeper into bansheeness.

Black to Red (Paradigm Shift Red Magic) - She recently discovered the power that could be drawn from the blood itself. Her red magic may be misunderstood as blood magic. At least if you have no idea about either.

Turned in love, separated in violence (Banshee + Phobia Banshee Hunters + Emotional Attachment (Whip) - Was turned by her love, who was killed by Banshee Hunters. She still mourns a lot about his death, though it has gotten better in recent times. Needless to say that the failed imbuement of her whip, a gift by him, was a big setback.

The Hunter (Mentor Spirit Wolf + Mentor's Mask + Chosen Follower + Beast's Way + Soul Swallower) - She's been more and more connecting with the nature of a predator. This shows both on a surface level by her strong connection to wolves and deeper down by a stronger connection to her as a monster.

Allergy Dryards - Nature is weird sometimes.

Addict (mild Bodyguard/Foci, dry mild Guts, Moderate Essence Drain) - She helped Shy with her addiction, but she has a few of her own.

Mentor Spirit Wolf

The mask replaces her head with that of a wolf and covers her back, shoulders, arms, and upper legs with white fur.

Her Mentor Spirit manifests as a pack of wolves that where over time more and more members show themself:

1. The Hunter - He came to her on the hunt and gives her advice about how to move, track and survive.

2. The Advisor - She is the old wolf, who has seen it all and passes her wisdom down to the rest of the pack.

3. Swerve - Though she is not part of La Rapides Mentor Spirit she is still considered part of the pack.

4. The Caretaker - She is the one who makes sure the pack doesn't fall apart and that everyone fulfills their role.

5. The Quisling - He showed himself to her after she backstabbed Amelie in favor of working with an Aztechnology vampire in A Very Unsuccessful Assassination. Betrayed his old pack for a better future. If that decision was a smart one remains to be seen.

6. The Healer - He takes care of the sick and wounded in the pack.

Plot Hooks

Aspect Information Related Run(s)
Between 2 Places la Rapide has both a home in Seattle and Brittany, France. The one in Brittany is got abandoned when the mist first came, and wasn't reclaimed until recently. Probably because of the dangerous paracritters and occasional fey who visit the place. This can become quite an issue when you just want to rest, or are in a rush.
False Ally While Raps has been working for Amelie and Jean-Baptiste since shortly after they established themselves in Seattle, she isn't one bit loyal to them. Raps has betrayed them before and will do it again, if doing such seems profitable. Amelie doesn't trust her, but she does not know of the betrayal. Instead thinking it was just a failed run. Betrayal in A Very Unsuccessful Assassination
Magical Connections Raps is connected to her whip, a powerful weapon foci and a gift from a dead lover, and to a wolf in Brittany. Having access to either of these would make it rather easy to magically track and target Raps, and get you onto the top of her kill list.

In Character Information

Symbols and Signatures

Matrix Search Table

Threshold Result
1 The translation from french to english: The Fast
3 Articles and information about an old steam car called "la Rapide" from 1881, a few race horses with the same name. And a Horizon super hero film with the superhero "The Fast" who bears a mild similarity with her.
5 A few different snippets of video footage and articles from the last 37 years. She appeared to have moved from NY to Seattle over a long and more or less aimless route in 2045/46 and few murders, from that time, all over America, might be linked to her. Sometimes with more, and sometimes with less certainty.

Threshold Result
1 Close combat Combatant who uses a whip. Has been running the Seattle shadows longer than most can remember.
3 She's infected and part of the Shadow Haven. When she uses her adept powers a wolfs mask appears.
5 She fleed from France to Seattle a little under 40 years ago and has been running here ever since. There are a few rumors that she was behind a few gruesome murders with drained bodies and missing people, but it could have been another infected too. When the Night Throne established itself she began running for them but she doesn't seem to be a member.

Rating 6 by UCAS - Claire Amare (PI license, firearms license, adept license)


Clairise Grenouillie looks like a slender female Elf, with pale skin, amaranth hair and a gaunt face. She is usually reserved but if she speaks with somebody she can be very charming.


Matrix Persona

Pitch black elf.

Media Mentions

She was seen on a Horizon Trid, but in really good disguise and under the name "The Fast".
