She was a Shamanic Huntress hailing around the 19th Century , the daughter of Vicente Cruz, who was a member of the Brotherhood of the Five , and was a fierce vampire huntress whose sole purpose was to eradicate and incarcerate vampires within the phoenix stone. After being forced to kill her father by Julian , she became enhanced by a tribe of shamans to get vengeance on Julian, his Heretic family, and all vampires. Her main target was Stefan Salvatore who was stabbed by her when she attempted to kill Damon. The wound from her sword marked him allowing her to find Stefan anywhere and compelling her to kill him. She was willing to kill anyone of any species who dared to stand in her way. After the Phoenix Stone was destroyed, she writes down the names of all the vampires that escaped and has the gang go after them.
