Blood and Bone China

Back Victoria

Lady Victoria

Played by Lara De-Leuw

First appearance: Chapter One - Oblivion and Paradise

Lady Victoria is the seductive mistress of Linus Hemlock. She is of Ukranian nobility and came to London at the age of 20 to live the high life and attend high society parties. It was here that she met Linus Hemlock, on a visit from Stoke-On-Trent, and he instantly fell for her. He showered her with expensive gifts and tokens of his affection, but his feelings were unrequited.

Linus invited Victoria to a ball held at Hemlock manor, to celebrate the success of his ceramic factory. Not one to miss a party, Victoria accepted the invitation and travelled north. During the evening of the ball, Linus asked for her hand in marriage. When she rejected his proposal, he was filled with rage. That night, he let Leonora into the room where Victoria was sleeping and she never saw the light of day again. As a creature of the night, Victoria is completely subservient to Hemlock. She is his most dangerous servant, a beautiful assassin luring men from the streets with ease.
