There has to be a reason why we’ve yet to see Claudia in the present, and here is why we are worried.

Louis may not have killed him completely, but he left him in a destitute state. Claudia’s feelings for him were rather clear. Lestat is someone who can be patient, as evidenced by the fact that he hadn’t sought out his former companion and/or Claudia before. However, has all of this waiting led to him building up even more of a disdain? At the moment, it is a fair thing to question…
