The Usual Suspects (NPCs)
Adrika Niranjana
High Concept: Kemmlerite Necromancer and Demonic Ally

Adrika was born in Sarnia, Ontario to Sikh Punjabi parents. Her father, Noonien Niranjana, was born in Tibet and raised in Delhi, while her mother, Karenjit Vohra, was from Sirmaur, Himachal Pradesh. As a young girl, she was very athletic and played street hockey with the boys, and ice skating on a nearby frozen lake.

Although the family was Sikh, her parents enrolled her in Catholic school as it was felt to be unsafe for her to go to public school. When she was 13, her family moved to Fort Gratiot,
Michigan, then to Lake Forest, California a year later, and finally to New York, a year after that, fulfilling her grandparents’ dream that the family be together in one place. She graduated from high school in 1999 and enrolled in college.

During her earliest years, her parents, both members of The White Council, feared the magical legacy entrusted to their daughter, and performed an intricate ritual to lock the girls magical abilities away forever. In college, Adrika came into contact with the Magical Artifact known as Seal of the Templars. This artifact instantly broke the enchantments placed upon her by her parents (now both slain in the Vampire War) and freed her magical abilities.

The Seal also put her in contact with the Demon Lord, Baphomet. Baphomet directed her to David Akon, where her tutelage into magic began. Unbeknownst to Akon, however, Baphomet continued to communicate with Adrika, teaching her magics even Akon was unaware of, and securing her soul in alliance.

She continued her college studies into Western and Eastern Mythology, and received her Doctorate in Mythology, from NYU, in 2006. While in college, she covered her apprenticeship to Akon, working as his assistant at Green-Wood Cemetery. Since her graduation, however, the two have had a falling out, orchestrated by Baphomet, and Adrika has taken a path all her own.
