Lily was a chef with a secret. She's also a panther shifter. When she escaped a horrible kidnapping ordeal, she mauled a man whom she mistook for one of her attackers. When the leaders of Draoithe take her in and grant her sanctuary, they have turned the man she mauled and killed as a hybrid panther vampire to save him.
