General Knowledge

Other Clans have remarked upon how "unusually" friendly he is for being a Ventrue. When it comes to dealing with mortals, he is amongst the first to volunteer. His talents and background lends itself to dealing with the Masquerade.


History

Arthur arrived in Philadelphia, June 2014. For those who ask, he claims to be from Chicago. As to other personal information, he has been very quiet about it.

In November 2014, Arthur was named as Whip by Primogen William Edric. In April 2015, Blackwell earned Edric's Favor. In July of 2015, following the investigation into the disappearance of Prince Abe Freeman, Blackwell was awarded Defender by Blu, Prince of Atlantic City.

September 2015, Arthur was appointed by Lucine Volage to serve as Talon.

December 2015, Arthur became Harpy.

Gabriel McNally, a hard-hitting, wise cracking, good guy Brujah. His partner, Arthur Blackwell, is a smooth talking, ludicrously wealthy Ventrue without a stick up his butt. Roaring through the streets of Philadelphia and occasionally Atlantic City, the Pork Chop Express always finds a party.

Together they: bust up human trafficking rings, burglarize businesses for lost books belonging to former Princes, sass crime lords then make them forget that even happened. They preserve the Masquerade and keep things clean with none to minimal collateral damage. For these often unsung heroes, no task is too small, no situation too absurd. If bribery doesn’t work, then throwing a guy out of the second story window is just as good.


Together, they are The Solution.
