  • Despite being a patron of the arts and Peace, Canaan was a Crusader and longs to swing his sword again.
  • He seems awful friendly with the Followers of Set...

  • "If one had a dictionary of Kindred Terminology, and one were to search for the term Toreador Prince - then one would find a picture of Canaan Espina as reference." – Eileen Vargas
  • "When given cause to wonder if Canaan Espina's familiar manner is due to happenstance or design, one need only remember his life's work in architecture." - Edward Salazar
  • "In the past it was not uncommon for me to be adopted into a patron's household, but Canaan elected to take that one step further and welcomed me into his family when I was a stranger in a fledgling city. I will always be grateful for his generosity, and so happy to know him and all those I have come to adore in his line. Do not let my fondness deceive you. This is a man of conviction and great fury when provoked." - Ligeia Loxley

  • "I was pleasantly surprised and delighted with the hospitality that Prince Canaan showed me whilst I was in his city. I do not know him as well as many others, but I found his grace, charm and generosity truly fitting the image of what a Prince should be." - Mina Chandler
  • "I have only met His Highness twice, but both times I was struck by the sense of his majesty. Regardless, it was my duty and honor to serve the Camarilla in Portland, and I am deeply flattered the Prince remembered my contributions when so many others also fought and bled that night." - Captain Sawyer
  • "Canaan first came to my attention when he came to the Portland area. Myself and Cy helped him to build the city, I with my iron, Cy with his worms, and Canaan with his artistry of building. A strong foundation is meant to last." - Laszlo Bako
  • "I think Great Grand-Sire is having a joke at our expense, and as much as my curiosity drives me I'm almost afraid to hear the punchline." - Cassandra
  • "Canaan is like the brother I never had, and like siblings we agree on just about as many things as we do not." - Shay
  • "Canaan stands as a true pillar of the Camarilla. My respect for him is immense. For reasons that are his own, he has taken it on himself to provide me with many social lessons, a debt I can only hope to some night repay. The least I can do is put them to good use." - Samuel Graves
  • "from my observation it would seem Prince Canaan's renowned skills in architecture transfer well to designing a domains structure. He runs a tight ship and stands as a shining example of a domain in good standing. " - Alister MacArthur
  • "An eloquent speaker with a clear vision for his domain and the Camarilla. However, I find his gift for leadership truly blossoms as he interacts with his subjects, their loyalty and affection is proof of his ability." - Viktor Cantemir
  • "He needs a nap, just sayin, isn't that what old people do when they get cranky?" - D
