Maria was the vampire who had created both Jasper and Peter—Jasper in the latter half of the nineteenth century, Peter more recently, in the nineteen forties. She’d looked Jasper up once when we were in Calgary. It had been an eventful visit—we’d had to move immediately. Jasper had politely asked her to keep her distance in the future.

He did her bidding without question -- until he bailed, seeking an end to his depression. He didn't realize there was an alternative to constant war, so maybe he thought he had to be in someone's coven (hard to make it alone in that culture), and it might as well be Maria's.
