Holly Chang — First appears in Angels' Blood. For more on this Character, see Sorrow.

Introduction Edit

Holly Chang is the single surviving victim of Uram—a Bloodborn-crazed archangel who went on a macabre killing spree.[1] The concern is that Uram may have infected her.[2]

Biography / History / Backstory Edit

✥ No one is certain what she is — she needs blood, but not as much as a vampire, and she does need to eat food. She may be the result of an aborted attempt at conversion. The healers and doctors think she may simply be one of those who are easily Made — but now that she's only partially transformed, trying to complete the conversion may kill her.[3]

✥ Later she changes her name to Sorrow, but changes it back to Holly as it made her family sad.

She was found hiding in a hole away from the building that held rest of the bodies by Elena Deveraux and Raphael when they followed her blood trail. Elena finds her naked accept for blood, her arms gripping her raised knees as she rocked.[4] When she saw a glimpse Illium of wings, she started whimpering, locking her muscles tight. Elena insists that one of the vampires help—no one with wings. Raphael sends for Dmitri. She fears the woman will be killed. Raph says that she will need to be tested. The concern is that she may be infected—she will be killed if she is.[5] Dmitri has taken her to their healers. She might be infected with Uram's madness—his brand is catching—she ingested some of Uram's blood, most likely by forcing her to feed from him.

Quotes Edit

That woman—girl, really—had survived a monster intent on destroying everything she was. She deserved a fucking medal for courage, not pity. — Elena
"Without the proper procedure and with the mutant strain in Uram's blood, it should have been impossible."[3]
"Be easy, Dmitri," he said now. "We won't abuse her, but we must monitor her progress." If she carried the taint of the bloodborn, she had to die.[3]
