The beautiful artist that Louis de' Pointe du Lac falls in love with, the daughter of Lestat de' Lioncourt and sister to Christiana de' Lioncourt. Her best friend is Horizon, who was at one time a bride of Dracula. He turns her the second night he meets her, under the moonlight he grants her the kiss of the vampire. He wants her to be his eternal bride of darkness, and his soul-mate for eternity.
Thy beauty is to me
Like those Nicèan barks of yore
That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
The weary way-worn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.
~ A poem from Edgar Allen Poe that Louis de Pointe du Lac quoted for Isabella de' Lioncourt, whisking her away into the beckoning night to be his eternal queen of darkness.
