Brianna Alexis Karkana was born to single mother, Lauren Elizabeth Karkana, in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her early life was hard, moving all over the Midwest, always on the “wrong side of the tracks.” Her mother, also a White Court vampire, worked in a constant series of seedy nightclubs and bars, satisfying her hunger for rage on the clientele. Whenever it looked like the mortals might notice, she packed up her daughter and belongings and moved on. As a result, Brianna had few friends growing up and was often left to fend for herself. [I Can Take Care of Myself]

Rising Conflict

Like her own transformation from White Court virgin to full-fledged vampire, Lauren wanted to insure that her daughter reached her full potential. As Brianna grew, her quick temper and outsider status frequently got her into altercations with her peers. While she could often intimidate her way out a situation, Brianna also didn’t hesitate to use her fists. Her home life became more and more unstable as Brianna’s rage sparked huge fights between the two women. During her senior year of high school, Brianna’s life completely changed the night she accidentally killed someone and her powers fully manifested. [I Am a Fighter]

The Story

fightring.jpgBrianna realizes that a Red Court vampire is encroaching on “her” territory, an underground fighting ring in St. Louis, Missouri. Two bodies have already been found and the mortals are getting nervous. Furious that she may lose her feeding ground, Brianna decides to track down the vampire. [I Will Defend What Is Mine]

Guest Star

She finds the Red Court vampire just as he is attacking another fighter, a man named Joey Aragon. Although he can obviously hold his own in a fight, he is no match for the supernatural abilities of his attacker. Enraged, Brianna launches herself at the Red Court vampire, determined to take care of this problem for once and for all. The fight is brutal, but Brianna comes out on top. [I Get Knocked Down, But I Get Up Again]
