Her early years were unremarkable really. She was happy. She had a happy family. Nothing truly interesting ever really happened to her beyond the fact that she had an aunt that moved to the United States to be with a man that she had met on the internet. Her parents were scandalized but her aunt seemed happy and that was what mattered.

When she was in her early teens, in Spain, her parents were in an accident with a drunk driver that killed her father and left her mother in a coma for 6 months. Doctors said that even if she woke up she would never be the same again. They said that she would have brain damage from the head trauma. It didn't matter one little bit to Adrina. She spent her every waking moment that she wasn't in school at her mothers side until one day her mother quietly passed in the middle of the night. Her life had been devastated and even the one thing she had left to hold onto had gone away. She was brought to live with her aunt in the United States where she struggled to find a place to fit in. Photography became a way out of her shell, with her art teacher nurturing the burgeoning talent. She won several small contests, some citywide and some statewide, but she never really came out of her shell all that much. She was still very much a loner, which lent itself well to her work. She went to an arts college to hone her skills and when she left she was a much stronger photographer than she had been with all of the technical skills that she would need to make a living at her chosen profession.

Her infection, funnily enough, came through the lycanthrope vaccine. It was a one in a million chance that she would contract the virus and lucky for her she won the genetic lottery. It didn't take long before she was sick and feverish, unable to stop herself from getting sicker as the month continued on, having contracted the virus mere days after the last full moon.

Once she turned first she was found by what turned out to be the only lion in the entire city of Phoenix, undoubtedly alerted to the fact that she was what she was by the mauling that occurred to some poor Hispanic woman on the west side of town. It certainly gave him somewhere to start looking. He found her before too long, before the next full moon thank god, and immediately took her somewhere that was going to be safe for her and for the public at large. He took her and trained her, as the trainings go, and taught her how to control herself both in and out of public. She was like a sponge. She learned fast and he rarely had to tell her anything twice. She had her fair share of failings and missteps, as you would expect, but they were quickly fixed. She was a moderate in no time. When the time came that her beast started to push her for more she followed. In a moment of cooperation between beast and woman she came upon her mentor and attacked. She gave as good as she got, holding out as long as she could before she finally had to concede defeat. There was no way that she would be able to best him but something in her had to try anyway.

She left Phoenix one day in a rush and panic, having been attacked with her mentor by Humans First. They separated as they left town and never saw each other again. She, in her wisdom, went as far away as she could get, stopping here and there to earn a little money, but never staying anywhere long enough to put down roots. It wasn't until she reached DC that she finally settled. Finding the Pride was exactly what she needed and before long she was safe and sound and working again. She spends a lot of her time alone now, except for those shared meals, and has basically thrown herself into her work and her art.

This works for me as long as the Regina approves.  :)

Also, unless I'm mistaken she'd also get [Consciousness] strong moderate power.
