Name: Deceased Alister MacArthur
Notable Traits: Alister speaks with a soft Scottish accent and is excessively formal in even casual company.
A large scar crosses over his left eye with a smaller one on the far side of his brow, his left eye is a pale milky white
similar to what a cataract would look like. The eye moves and follows with his vision, but if he can see out of it is not known.
When in a room Alister's eye never stays one place long, he is always gathering his surroundings.
Alister is a Apprentice of the Seventh Circle. He has ascended to this rank from A3 in the past 5 years, his dedication to house and clan is strong, but it is noted that he does follows the camarilla by laws above all else. Most of the last century was spent in service of the clan in Vienna as a low level apprentice fledgling, Alister was passed over for promotion and assignments more times then he can count because of his unappealing connection to his now deceased sire Lucius Black. Even with this disadvantage, his loyalty to clan and house still never waned. With the patience of Jobb, he restlessly studied and excelled, finally leaving the chantry in 2002 and immediately assigned to a very dangerous assignment in Milan. In 2005 his work in Milan seemed to be at its end, he was sent to San Francisco to assist Regent Viktor Cantemir with creating a stronger loyal Tremere Presence in the city.
The Glass Pyramid: Alister joined this group in 2005 with a recommendation from Viktor Cantemir. As a Member, Alister's unfortunate embrace no longer holds him back among his clan as it has in his past.
Viktor Cantemir: The Elder of his clan in San Francisco.
"Charlie": Alister and "Charlie" share very few similarities, but they have a strong friendship that transcends the traditional bounds of friendship.
DeAnna Eldritch: Although her pet name for him is "Wet Blanket" Alister considers her safety a high priority, not only because she can be a bit of a diva but because she brings him a sense of necessity.
Tamerlane: Tam Elder of clan Brujah inspired Alister to become Sheriff and pushed him to train his abilities beyond just satisfactory standards.
