Rachel Snow

The Woman With the Drive


She has olive skin with dark eyes and hair that’s cut short (so as not to provide a handhold in combat) but stylish. She wears little jewelry, with the exception of a fetish necklace.


Rachel Snow comes from a long and distinguished line of American Storm Lords. She originally hails from Colorado Springs, and her extended kinfolk family is very involved with the various defense industries that make their homes in Colorado. (Some locals joke that for every bomb that exploded over Iraq in both Gulf Wars, the Snows got a thousand dollars.) While they don’t own any major defense contractors such as Boeing or Martin Marietta, companies owned by the Snows provide parts and services to all of them. Rachel fervently believes in personal responsibility and hates the thought of owing anything to anyone. For years, she led expeditions into the territories surrounding Denver to perform precision strikes on the agents of Gurdilag who operated there and keep the usurpation from spreading. Her experience and intelligence made the Echoes of Thunder invaluable to Roman’s war effort. She strongly supported the group effort to retake Denver, which has made her refusal to back Roman’s efforts to create inter-tribal alliances feel like a betrayal (from his perspective). She maintains that she never supported anything other than the conflict itself. In fact, the conflict between the Uratha who survived the battle will, in turn, make those survivors better warriors. Since the re-taking of Denver, her pack continues to seek out conflicts, and when necessary, instigate them. She has quietly encouraged both sides in conflicts and richly rewarded the victors.

The Snow family, an extended clan with Storm Lord blood flowing through it, has branches from all over the globe. Rachel hails from a branch with strong ties to South America.

Rachel is strong, confident and always in charge. She uses every weapon at her disposal to make herself and her pack stronger, including cunning and guile. She’s a powerful warrior, but she knows that not all battles are fought with claw and klaive. She is equally comfortable using words as weapons.
