Priscilla Voda belongs to one of the twelve royal families and is Queen Tatiana's best friend and adviser. The title "Princess" indicates that she is the eldest in her family. She is related to Ralf, and it's likely he learned about the Queen's plans to marry off Lissa and Adrian from Priscilla. Priscilla was killed in a horrific Strigoi attack during Vasilisa's eighteenth birthday. Almost everyone that accompanied them was brutally killed, except for Christian, Lissa's boyfriend, Lissa, and Lissa's guardian Serena, although she was gravely injured.
