- "Her voice was thick like honey. There was a smell like spices in the air, and I wasn't sure if it was her perfume or illusion. Her high-boned face was empty of makeup and still she was beautiful—though I wondered what she'd look like if she weren't clouding my mind. Because surely no human could have radiated the raw sexuality that clung to Kissa like a touchable cloud."

Kissa is a tall vampire, with skin "the color of coffee with two creams". Her dark hair was worn in waist-length cornrows. Jean-Claude was surprised to discover she was still with Seraphina when they met in Branson. She is believed to have died along with all the vampires that were sleeping in the Bloody Bones restaurant. (Bloody Bones)
