Alma has been the Countess de Béziers for only a few years following the death of her father Julien. The Counts de Béziers have long taken advantage of the Comté's favourable trade situation to become quite wealthy, and while she does not exactly flaunt the wealth she has inherited, it is shown by her home in the Grand Vallon, the quality of her dress and the servants who often accompany her.

She has recently finished training to become a priest. It was the death of her mother, about a decade past, and the role the priest played in counselling her and her family in their grief that lead her to chose the path of a cleric. Since then she has finished her time in the seminary, and her calling has drawn her from Béziers to the Castalia for further study, leaving her estate and affairs in the trusted hands of a steward.

At the Castalia, she seeks to learn more about the history and people of our Empire, and to understand the nature of our world and of death itself. Her interests also include ethics, metaphysics, the Houses and the Houseless, and foreign cultures, especially death rituals and after-death beliefs.

As a priest, Alma does not have a home church, chosing to assist at several in Diablotin, and volunteers in other areas, including tending to those on their death beds, and assisting with funerals. It is known that Alma is a moderate Pasithian.

It is rumoured that the Contesse de Béziers claims a special gift. The rumour is true, though Alma does not seek to flaunt it. She is sensitive to impressions left behind on objects by their owners, and to the emotional events which have occurred in certain locations. It is this gift which has lead her to an interest in the Rhenean Antiquarian Society, in the hope of being able to examine old objects which have had few owners since their discovery.
