"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." - Alvin Toffler

Finley Welles was born in 1996, the daughter of a determined woman whose lower middle class state would find itself constantly dragged down to abject poverty by her extended criminal family and raising alone her sharp daughter. Finley would be raised Church of Satan, and involved in a range of community outreach projects throughout her youth to try and keep her busy. For her mother, a husband would come along eventually and leave again under complicated circumstances.

Meanwhile, the young Finley learned the hard lessons of poverty, the short-cuts of the criminal world, and the broadening horizons of the Internet Age. These would turn her into a thrifty hacker whose career and unique focus would eventually lead to her Embrace into Clan Tremere in early 2015. She may have used a fake ID.

Inside the stoic clan, but arriving after the most rigid of it's crimes and history left Finley in a strange position that would only grow stranger as she was under Accounting by her Anarch Sire but upon release joined the shiny new Independent Alliance. In her home city of Detroit she would help the Alliance establish a Domain, and inexplicably find herself Princess. She relies mostly on her experience as a Raid Leader and her familiarity with Excel.

In her night-to-night she continues to attend University, and works on a variety of scientific, economic, and social projects ranging from the terraforming of Mars to the safe acclimation of vampires to modern earth society.
