“When did you find out about Ada?” Clara asked.
“You mean more than rumours and innuendo?” Evelyn confirmed. “I think we were formally introduced in the seventies. We are both considered new to this life, so we seldomly include our lineage into the mix.”

She was curious on how high society for vampires worked. The Tower focused on anatomy, tactics and how to kill vampires, even when disadvantaged by their humanity. That was the reason why hunters generally hunted in pairs at first, to improve their odds and better fend off a foe.
“A duc actually,” Evelyn said flatly. “He died in my arms, by my own hand, but that’s not the point. Ada and I did not exchange family history or vampiric lineage. First names were enough.”
“You didn’t notice a family resemblance?” Clara asked before taking another sip.
