This is a story is of a 17th Century American born into a successful Rhode Island shipping family, whose prosperity, love, family, and health were eroded by a would be dominitor who sought to test his resolve. Everything was torn and stripped from this man. Despite his agony, financial and personal loss, and horrific illness, bitter hatred and avarice kept him clawing his way back up, every time his watcher twisted life to beat him down. On the very edge of death, the monster came for him when he had nothing left, ghouling him into eternal service.


It was his destiny to be born into nobility, yet years later despite his extensive grooming and training to walk another path, in a story few know this man became an unlikely Gangrel carrying the new pseudonym, Equinox.


An unusual mix of refinement and savagery, with each passing decade he steadily devolves into the beast. Finding power in passion, hatred and anger, his last strong connections to his humanity are all he has left of the man he once was. Equinox currently resides in the bayous near Houston, an echo of strength and a faded aristocracy.

  • "Despite the discussions of menace or proclivity for violence, the element that impresses the most about Elder Equinox is his capacity and talent for leadership within his own Clan. In short order he has managed to organize his blood into a collective for the good of the Tower in the face of recent tribulations. Most Gangrel can fight. It is those who can lead who truly impress me." - David Daniel Steiner
  • "Frankly, he's a terrible conversationalist and I was happy when he left us alone to enjoy our evening away from his awful presence." - Carmina Giovanni, when asked about the Gangrel elder.
  • "It is through adversity alone that a man may be measured, the concept of limits is meaningless without this understanding. For it is only when you push a being BEYOND its furthest limitations that a true understanding of who they are or what they are capable of is possible. Those who have never been broken, have never truly been tested... for only a fractured soul knows, without question, the burden it can bear." - An observation from Phillip Avery Redgrave

  • "I'm obligated, by my word of honor and agreement, to publicly find his -Inhumanity- deplorable. Obligations being what they are, the company of Elder Equinox is beyond refreshing and anything but deplorable.

A bonus that he doesn't feel the need to tell me about them in order to gain favor or a sense of worth." - Prince Gabriel Tavaasche of Baton Rouge
  • "We have worked together only once, and we traded no words to each other. Yet, I do not find fault in this. On the contrary, I prefer one who does not flower actions with worthless words. I pity his enemies." - Charles Roberts, Sheriff of Washington, DC
  • "A regained glory, how truly wonderful! It's not so surprising that there is a strong understanding between us. What's refreshing is that it was discovered with few words and no posturing. If only all fellow Elders saw empty words and posturing as useless as the Humane Elder Equinox." - Prince Orelio Taipetra of Baton Rouge
  • "Directness. It is a refreshing trait. When an Elder owns up to his shortcomings publicly and accepts the consequences for them, it intrigues me. I long for a night to sit and discourse with Equinox." Miss Maggie
  • "We share a common trait - a history of pain." - Karl Richter

  • "Striking." - Master Harpy Forbes, Domain of Waterloo
  • "Savagery is the natural order of things. Civilization is a construct, based on circumstance. Savagery must always ultimately prevail." - Marus

  • "I wonder." - Harper Gray
  • "A leader I would have no trouble following to my death" - Dravon

  • "A lick of of superbly subtle affect, Equinox surprised me with his ferocity; a former Myrmidon turned Clanhead...it is clear that this one understands the role dominance plays in both the wilds and the halls of power." - Bleach
  • "10 foot black alligator....then picked up an assamite and shook him like an unruly puppy...I think I'll do my level best to avoid the man." - Brigid

  • "Respect." - Jasper Stark
  • "A dark man, with a dark heart. He has allowed duty and ambition to consume him, and in the process become something altogether more savage and inspiring than any other Gangrel of my acquaintance. He is the leader our clan deserves." - Magdalene Lys
  • "A kindred of wisdom and patience. Patience is something that lacks among our kind and yet it would seem Equinox was blassed with an abindance."- Kairn
  • "Here is a man that I respect, that's damned rare for his gender." -Christina Ross

  • "He's got a presence, and I don't just mean the foreboding sense when he's around. Fella's a damn fine leader: equal parts intimidating and inspiring." - Wohl
  • "There is an amazing amount of wisdom in his eyes. I can imagine what he could impart on someone as young as myself."- Jinx
  • "...Holy crap. I just had to stand as Equinox's representative in a meeting. I don't care if it was baby Gangrel training wheels, I haven't been that terrified of anyone's disapproval since I got embraced! ...Um. Maybe don't tell Prince Bridgette that. It was not a challenge!" - Emma Klein
  • "Each time we gather, I look for the tall feathered man in black. When I inevitably get bored, I will drift towards him, to see if I can ruffle his feathers and to catch brief moments of conversation that will prove to be unrivaled when we all go our separate ways again. I attend these events for many reasons, and he is one." - Viveka Josephina Von Daun
  • "Meeting with Clanhead Equinox was a bonafide Experience with a capital "E". I talked with the man, but the words were more...to put me at ease than anything else, I think. He didn't need them; just wanted to get a look at me. Stared right at me and I felt judged in a way I can't rightly describe. I was deeply aware that if something didn't smell right, I wouldn't be walking out of there. Strangely, that didn't make me afraid--it made me eager to find out the result, because if I died in that room, I knew that it would be the right thing to happen. I did leave, however, and because I did I have walked just a little more confidently in this strange world ever since. I would thank him, but I suspect he already knew my gratitude in that moment." - Roger Bennington

  • "That Outlander is among the best of us. I met him once down in the bayou, and I saw what he can do. I'd follow him to Hell and back." - Raven
