Really, I only make myself crazy when I'm preparing for things; when I'm actually doing them (see: Wind Tunnel Dreams last month), I do just fine.
Katrina: Mother of the four sisters the series revolves around. Benefit of this opening: seeing someone discover Shayara and the fact that she's not human for the first time.
Jessa: Fenris's lover, Capri's mother, freedom fighter. Only problem with this opening is that she knows who and what she is - but you'd get to see her teaching (and falling in love with) Fenris.
