Known to Kindred Society

  • Born in Paris to a courtier of King Francis I
  • Embraced by Archon Frederico di Padua
  • Put numerous Anarchs to final death during The French Revolution
  • Fought in The June Rebellion of 1832, for the returned Prince Villon
  • Fled to London during the February Revolution of 1848
  • Settled in Dover in the early 1900s
  • At The Regional Conclave of the United Kingdom in 2016 Ardante tabled a Motion of Censure against Justicar Ferdinand Di Santo. It was ratified by the Prince's present. Di Santo was then executed for failing the Tower and Imperator Trajan Bloodhunted Ardante for undermining a Justicar.
  • Resurfaced after his apparent death in March 2017 to request Clemency from the Ivory Tower. The Imperator was not in a negotiating mood.


Ardante's blood runs hot in true gallic fashion, his temper is easy to arouse and just as quick to vanish. He can be erratic at times but stays himself with the love of his brood. He is active for an Elder and not afraid to lead from the front, he is fearless and a little arrogant - a mixture that will often lead him in to dangerous places. His favorite approach to obvious traps is to spring them and dismantle them from within.

Quotes

  • "I will walk to the darkest places on this planet with confidence in my heart, for I know you all walk behind me" ~ Ardante, on his Brood.
  • "He took her into his arms again, using all his strength to be gentle, and let his lips touch hers so lightly he could hardly feel it.” - Penny Dreadful
  • "He's a rare type. Sociable. Has that old world noblesse; a gentility and candor that makes him approachable. Don't mistake it for weakness... He knows how to lead, and how to motivate those he's leading. He understands the power of a kind word and its ability to inspire loyalty. And he's no slouch in battle either." ~ Talia Ferr
  • "He's walked into the heart of darkness and demanded its surrender; then, he lent an arm to force it to its knees when it refused his generous offer. If anyone ever says anything about French cowardice, I'll point them in his direction." ~ Marcus Fletcher
  • "If you break my Dorchada's black little heart, I will take you for a moonlit stroll near those famous cliffs of yours. Tread lightly." - Serratus
  • "I'm so glad I met him. He seems like an interesting sort of fellow- aged, curious, complimentary when it's deserved.. It doesn't hurt that he's French, either." - Nenette
  • "Ardante is steadfast proof that not even our clan's gift can dislodge the soul of an aristocrat". - Claire
  • "The elder is an interesting and infuriating person, his courage is tempered with his unforeboding stubbornness. Together, they do cause troubles... something I have brought to his attention before and almost been cast aside for my previous naivety." - Luciano Totti Hernandez
